Jay-Z was a part of the Yankees victory parade on Friday. I know this because he walked right past me and I have the blurry cell phone photo to prove it.
Turns out, it’s been quite the past few days for the man formerly known as Shawn Carter.
On Thursday, Jay-Z performed with U2 in Berlin. For those of you scoring at home, Berlin is in Germany and Germany is far, far away.
Maybe the U2 performance was taped another night and only aired Thursday — I’m hardly an expert on Mtv Europe — but Jay-Z was certainly in Germany not too long and still made it to the Yankees parade on Friday. That’s kind of cool.
As for the guy Jay-Z was with in the parade, Alex Rodriguez wore some questionable headgear — guys like him seem to pull it off better than the rest of us — but he seemed genuinely moved by the experience of riding through the Canyon of Heroes.
“I’ve never seen so many people collected in one place,” he said. “It just seemed like they were as hungry as we were. The fans really wanted this. They were a huge factor for us all year. To think that we only loss less than 10 games (at home) after the all-star break, tells you how important they were as one of our main weapons.”
