A few weeks ago, Jay-Z rode the R train from Canal Street to his final show at the Barclays Center. I, of course, wasn’t lucky enough to be in the car, then. (In nearly 30 years of living in NYC, my celeb run-ins have been very few and far between.) But Ellen Grossman, a 67-year-old artist, was—and Jay-Z happened to sit right next to her. Their brief conversation was captured in Jay-Z’s 24-minute online doc, “Where I’m From.” I couldn’t help but smile when I watched the clip! (Skip to 19:20.)

That was just about THE sweetest interaction. I really don’t know much about Jay-Z (although maybe more than this woman does, hah!), but this makes me like him. рџ™‚
I’m glad you enjoyed the video as much as I did, Cassie! And it’s so true; you can’t help but like Jay-Z–and Ellen Grossman!–after watching it.
