Jay-Z, um, isn't Jay-Z anymore. The rapper told reporters at Tuesday night's GQ Awards, albeit through someone else, that he would not take kindly to them referring to him as Jay-Z. Instead, he insisted that he should now be called Shawn Carter, his real name, at all times.
Carter held an after-show party on the night, but did not sign the invitations 'Jay-Z'. Journalists were told:
"Please make sure that when referring to him in your article, you call him Shawn Carter. It's how he wants to be known now because he's exploring business opportunities in the UK."
...'course, a bitch ain't one.
