Gwyneth Paltrow’s Son Calls Jay-Z ‘Uncle Jay’

Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay-Z

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s 3-year-old son Moses is officially the coolest kid in school.

The son of the Oscar-winning actress and Coldplay frontman loves Jay-Z, according to his mom. “Any rock is daddy’s song,” she told Conan O’Brien on Thursday’s “Tonight Show.” “And any rap is Uncle Jay, Jay-Z.”

Moses’ favorite video from the Jiggaman is the controversial “99 Problems.” “We put on the ’99 Problems’ video ’cause he’s obsessed, which is actually quite not appropriate,” she laughed.

“He loves it and he sits there like this [arms crossed, nods head]. It’s the funniest thing. I should video it.”

The celebrity couple calls their son a “sensitive thug” after a lyric from Jay-Z’s “Heart of the City (Ain’t No Love).” “That sort of characterizes him perfectly because he’s so out of his mind and then he has these very poetic, soft [moments].”

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are close friends with Jay-Z and Beyoncé. They attended the Carters’ wedding in April 2008. Jay-Z has collaborated with Martin on Coldplay’s “Lost+” and Kingdom Come‘s “Beach Chair.”

    I hate Gwyneth Paltrow. I’m not sure why she thinks she’s qualified to give the entire country life advice about how to eat and where to go and how to raise your children on her idiotic website when she keeps her three year old occupied by shoving him in front of the tv and putting on inappropriate music videos.
    She also said on the interview that, for all intents and purposes, all white people sing rock music and all black people rap. What an open-minded world view to inculcate in your toddler’s mind! (“He [my son] thinks all white men [on the radio] are his dad.”)
    She’s an idiot. I wonder why Jay-Z is her friend. And what’s with you people commenting on this website like Jay-Z is your best friend? How do you know he’s a nice guy? He might be a total a-hole. With friends like Gwyneth Paltrow, I wouldn’t doubt it.

    [...] video ’cause he’s obsessed, which is actually quite not appropriate,” she told Conan O’Brien in June. “He loves it and he sits there like this [arms crossed, nods [...]

    I love Gwynet sh´s one of the most beautiful woman alife. Jay-z is her “best friend” because they have been a beautiful love and Jay love yet the mother of her son, Conan. It´s obscure Beyonce is so friend of Gwynet, but some friends tell that Gwynet have a total control and dominance over Beyonce. Kiis for “aunt Bey”!

    […] As if it was ever in doubt. Jay-Z returned to New York’s Madison Square Garden last night, and — no surprise — he still runs this town. Hova staged a spectacle jammed with fellow stars: Fabolous and Trey Songz joined Jay for “Say Aah.” The night also included performances by Young Jeezy, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Akon. And thanks to a fire in the courthouse earlier yesterday, Lil Wayne (the luckiest man to ever be sentenced to jail), showed up to lend his voice to “I’m Going In”. Also in the house: Jay-Z pal Gwyneth Paltrow. […]
