“Of course, of course [I’ll change my baby’s diapers],” Jay, real name Shawn Carter, tells GQ in its December issue.
Jay-Z plans on being the best dad, unlike his own father who left when Carter was 11-years-old. “If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts, but it’s not like you had a connection with something that was real,” Jay-Z explains of his situation. “Not to say it’s any better, but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero.”
So what will he do different?
“Providing — that’s not love,” he explains. “Being there — that’s more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They’re crying out for attention; they’re hurting for love. I’m not being judgmental — I’m just making an observation. They’re crying out for the love that maybe they didn’t get at home, and they got everything. All the material things that they need and want. So we know that’s not the key.”
