“Politicians Serve Their Own Agenda” – Jay-Z

Jay-Z has thrown his weight behind Obama’s re-election campaign, he even helped raise money for the campaign. So much for a man who doesn’t like politics you’d say.

In an interview with MTV News while celebrating the release of the NBA 2K13 video game on Wednesday, Jay-Z said, “I don’t even like the word politics. It implies something underhanded and I think we need less government.”

He continued by stating, “To be honest with you I think a lot of people are serving their own agendas, so they just argue back and forth and they think about their next term, and it’s more about themselves than about the people. They’re servicing the people, but we rarely get anything done because they’re going back and forth with whatever they’re doing, so I’m not really into politics.”

He doesn’t like politics though, he respects and admires the man that loves politics. “I gotta respect a man who is the first black president ever. To have that sort of vision and dream, I have to support that.”

Wyclef Jean, George Weah, and Arnold Schwarzeneger are few of the celebrities that have tried holding public office before. Only Arnold made it into office out of the three.
