Atlanta singer The-Dream is not holding any grudges toward Jay-Z despite being publicly dissed during the Grammy Awards last weekend and said people do not realize how innocent the incident was.
According to Dream, fans took Jay’s joke about his Grammy night head apparel way too far and do not know how much of a jokester Jigga really is.
“Me and that guy, we was already goofing off the whole night,” the singer/songwriter said when MTV News caught up with him backstage after his win. “Jay’s a funny guy, people don’t know that. Of course they’re looking in from national TV and they’re like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe he did that!’ And I’m like, ‘No, I can believe he did that.’ What you may not believe is that I have my own digs that I do all the time, so it’s all good.” (MTV)
The Grammy-winning singer/producer also revealed how much interest the headgear sparked from Jay’s wife, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.
The-Dream said he especially wasn’t taking it personally since someone very close to Jay had given him props about that very same hat. “Actually, Beyoncé asked me where I got these from and said they were so dope she wanted me to get her both of them,” he said. “So I don’t know what that means. [Jay-Z is] kind of like digging at both of us. I guess we’re country. This a country thing.” So has The-Dream found a new side hustle? “I’m trying to sell something other than music,” he said with a smile. “I’m trying to get it on. I’mma have these hats down on the corner for $3.99 — come get you one!” (MTV)
