During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, rapper [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] opened up on various topics, including admitting to being a fan of Brooklyn band [lastfm]Grizzly Bear[/lastfm], saying hip-hop could learn a lot from the “energy” of indie rock music.

The 40-year-old, who usually remains mum about his married life with songstress [lastfm]Beyoncé Knowles[/lastfm], even opened up and spoke of a recent disagreement the couple had.

Find out what the drama was in 3…2…1…

He said [lastfm]Beyoncé[/lastfm] stepped in and put her foot down when the hip-hop superstar showed interest in purchasing a black and white photo of “a noirishly lit pistol with a pair of women’s legs emerging from the handle” by esteemed artist/photographer Laurie Simmons.

[lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] compromised with his wife, who did not want the painting in their Tribeca penthouse in New York, and instead purchased another Simmons piece, which depicted a perfume bottle instead of a gun.

Of the original piece he wanted, Beyoncé’s husband of two years said, “It was more of a masculine style, I guess.”

Drama in paradise? Hardly! If these are the type of things Beyoncé and Jay-Z share disagreements on, then it sounds like the couple is doing well. In the end, it’s all about compromise!
