Beyoncé and Jay Z Will ‘Confront the Hard Subjects’ on Tour

It looks like Beyoncé and Jay Z’s upcoming On The Run 2 Tour might be the time where the couple hashes out any marital differences, according to Bey’s stepfather Richard Lawson.

Lawson told People, “Well, look at what they’ve been through in the last couple of years in terms of the things that they’ve confronted and the way that they’ve put it into art,” he said, adding, “This is gonna be really a culmination of their growth and their ability to really confront the hard subjects and the hard issues.”

Hov shared with David Letterman on Friday’s episode of the Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman that after attending therapy, he and Bey are “in a better place today.”

“Beyoncé is one of the sweetest people in the world,” Lawson said. “She’s still 16 years old at her heart—she still laughs like a 16-year-old.”

“She has more care and more concern and more love for humanity,” he continued. “She has more integrity, she’s a creative soul, she has a big, big, big, big, big vision about how to do things. She’s always moving the needle. I cannot tell you how proud I am of her and just how much I appreciate knowing such a large spirit. She’s an incredible human being.”

The couple’s tour kicks off in June in Europe, then comes to the U.S. in July. But before that, Beyoncé will grace the Coachella stage on April 14 and 22, after not being able to perform as the headlining act last year since she was pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir.

Jay Z Really Did Cry Tears of Joy When His Mom Fell in Love

Jay Z has recently been pretty candid about his mother, Gloria Carter, coming out to him after sharing it with the world on “Smile” via his 2017 album 4:44. On an upcoming episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the GLAAD Media award winner sits with host David Letterman to talk about how it all went down.

“Imagine having to live your life as someone else and you think you're protecting your kids,” he said. “For her to sit in front of me and tell me 'I think I love someone,' I really cried…I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free.”

The conversation happened pretty recently, while Jay was creating 4:44. “This happened eight months ago, when the album was being made. She just told me. I made ['Smile'] the next day.” Gloria Carter would eventually add her own words to the song, penning the last-minute poem on a flight to meet her son in LA. “I knew,” Jay told Letterman of his mother's sexuality, “but that was the first time having the conversation. And the first time I heard her say she loved her partner.” 


In the same episode, Jay also shared what makes fellow rap icons Snoop Dogg and Eminem great. “There's multiple ways to be really good,” he adds. “Some people just have it all.”

The full episode will be available on Netflix on April 6.
