Jay-Z Teams With Jack White and Tweets About Miley Cyrus's Twerk
During the course of his nearly seven-hour, on-and-off Twitter session, Jay-Z preferred to search for people who were tweeting about him rather than responding to inquiries sent to his official handle (@S_C_). In a few cases, he gave them a nice Twitter "BOO!" — imagine seeing that pop up in your @-replies.
When he did answer questions, he spoke about his favorite cereals and business strategies; naturally, he accepted hearty congratulations on his latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. There were eight random things that Jay revealed that have already had a massive impact on the universe as we know it, possibly altering the future course of entertainment… or whatever. In no particular order:
1. Miley Cyrus is The Future. If you weren't sure what to think about the whole Miley twerking thing or found her new video for "We Can't Stop" unsettling but you were unable to stop watching it, you can now rest easy. She got the seal of approval from Jay-Z on MCHG track "Somewhereinamerica" (in which he repeats, "twerk Miley, twerk") but now it's really official — it's cool to be Miley.
He tweeted, " RT @youngstacks92 You really think Miley Cyrus still twerking somewhere in America? [ yes! she represents an old worlds worst nightmare]"
To which Miley responded, "Call it what you want. But I don't see Mr. Carter shoutin any of you bitches out. #twerkmileytwerk ✌"
2. Jack White's Third Man label is adding Magna Carta to their vinyl catalog. First bomb drop of the whole Jay-Z Twitter experience was when an astute fan asked about why "Open Letter" was not on Magna Carta Holy Grail. Jay let 'em know it'll be on the vinyl version. Oh and by the way, Jack White's putting that one out. Wait, what? No response from White's Third Man Records, whom Radio.com checked in with yesterday. Read the other 8 revelations here.
