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.

There's going to be speculation whether the relationship is private or public. It's no one's business what goes on in anyone's marriage... I don't feel like any couple are required to explain anything publicly to anyone. Kudos to them for bring able to stay private.. some couples want to be out and open... others want their privacy.

Oh.. Now they should've exposed all their relationship details because not selling out to the media means your relationship is "corporate"

Soundz intelligent coming from a black man. Actually it's a pretty dull opinion looking at a broader picture.

What do they need to be open about? Should they be telling us what they had for dinner and what they argue about? We see them together all the time. That's public enough.

The truth is that this "marriage" is a big deal, to fight in an elevator became a way of earning money.

Who the **** is Akon?! Nobody relevant. If they want too keep their marriage private, then that's their prerogative. Go sit down Akon....better yet, go try and make a hit. I bet ya can't!
