Jay-Z & Beyonce

Jet Down to Cuba to

Play ... Ball?

0405_beyone_jay_z_cuba_smoking_launchJay-Z and Beyonce celebrated their wedding anniversary with an opportunely timed trip to Cuba that raises some questions, like ... is this strictly for pleasure, or maybe a little business too?

B and 'Hova were photographed strolling all over Havana on Thursday ... their 5th anniversary.

Technically, US citizens are not supposed to travel to the communist nation from the states if it's purely for tourism ... though there are ways to skirt the travel ban.

For instance, travelers can obtain a "cultural exchange" license from the US government.

Also, remember Jay-Z just launched his own sports agency to represent athletes, like baseball players -- and anyone scouting baseball players knows Cuba is a gold mine.

It's not clear if baseball qualifies as "cultural exchange" -- or if Jay and Beyonce obtained a travel license.

Just a theory, but we gotta ask ...

Beyonce. Are you happy after upstaging President Obama at his inaguration ceremonies, by pretending to sing (which we all know you cant) the national anthem? There is a pattern of complete fakeness to this woman. What about her fake pregnancy? Bizarre. At any rate, there may be some daddy isssues with her after her manager (pimp) father had a kid with another woman while still married to her mother. Get a grip BEE.

Is Beyonce with child? The two baggy outfits she is shown wearing looks like maybe she is hiding a bump under there.

Your government tells you where you can and cannot travel to in the world? I know there aren't direct flights, but Americans can't go there for any reason -- not even from somewhere else -- on orders from the US government? What's the penalty?

It's a weave. Why is it that B has to try so hard to have white hair for commercials but go to Cuba and she sisters it up. I'm black and even I can't stand it!

Maybe they didn't leave from the U.S.? Ever think of that? I meet up with tons of Americans everytime I go to Cuba...they all just jumped the border to Canada and zip on over to the most beautiful beaches and culture in the world....I dread the day they open it up 100% to American business.

The Cuban Embargo is the most stupid political policy in our history. Cuba is harmless to us but we treat China with our most favored trading Nation status while they have one of the worst Human rights record. Hypocrisy at its worst brought to you by your friendly U.S. Government.
