Akon

Jay Z & Beyonce's Marriage

Feels 'Corporate'

Jay Z and Beyonce might be crazy in love or they might be headed for a split, but R&B star Akon says the fact they have always kept their relationship private is what has led to so much speculation.

Akon was in D.C. Monday and was super open to our photog about celebrity relationships ... particularly Jay and Bey. What he says is really interesting.

Akon feels the mega-couple always presented their relationship to the public as more of a business than a real relationship. He says famous people need to be open with their fans about their relationships or else they invite the kind of rumors that have dogged Jay Z and Beyonce lately.

It's an honest and refreshing take from one of the biggest names in music. Check it out.

He is 100% correct. If they don't find a way to please nosy people (who read trash magazines because they have no life) this could negatively affect their marriage and that's sad. I'm not huge fan of Beyonce as a person anymore but I am a private person with my relationship so I feel for them because they can't have any sense of normalcy.

Nothing new here. It was arranged to generate $$$$$$.......the kind of publicity that all these young fools fall for. But that's how Hollywood and the music industry operate.

When you're a celeb, you're not supposed to marry for love. It's all about being part of a power couple.
