Jay Z's Mum Gloria Reveals JayZ Cried When She Revealed She's A Lesbian

In her words: Jay Z's mom Gloria Carter opened up about coming to terms with her sexuality and her identity for the first time since her unofficial coming out on her son's 4:44 record
Jay Z revealed his mom Gloria Carter was a lesbian in late June with a track from his album 4:44.
And this week, the New York native got the chance to talk about her sexuality and personal journey in her own words for the first time since her unofficial coming-out via song.
The rap mogul's mother recounted how she made her street-hardened son 'tear up' when she first told him she was a lesbian during her candid chat with on the D'USSE Podcast that aired Tuesday.
'Me and my son, we share a lot of information,' Gloria explained during her intimate hour-plus interview.
'I was sitting there and I was telling him one day, I just finally started telling him who I was.'
'Besides your mother, this is the person that I am, you know?' she said, 'This is the life that I live.

'He actually started tearing, because he was like, "That had to be a horrible life, Ma". And I was like, "My life was never horrible, it was just different". So that made him want to do a song about it.'

The matriarch went on to explain: 'I don’t hide who I am… I’m tired of all the mystery,' adding 'Now it’s time for me to be live my life and be happy, be free.'
That exchange inspired the 99 Problems rapper to 'want to do a song about' her struggles, eventually leading to the track Smile off his latest LP.

The superstar revealed mom Gloria Carter's truth in the lyrics to the soulful track.
'Mama had four kids but she's a lesbian' he rhymes with passion.
'Had to pretend so long, that she's a thespian,' raps Jay-Z, 'Don't matter to me if it's a him or her / I just want to see you smile through all the hate.'.
In doing so the husband of Beyonce confirmed for the first time hushed rumors about his mother's sexuality. 
He also explained how she turned to substances to cope with the stigma.
Smile opens with a snippet from Stevie Wonder and closes with a poem by Gloria herself, who recites: 'The world is changing and they say it's time to be free / But you live with the fear of just being me.'
