Jay-Z To Take Bey’s Last Name?Published by Runteldat on Thursday, December 24, 2009 at 12:00 am.
Has the notoriously chauvinistic Jay-Z been morphed into the modern man after marrying Beyonce?
Let the British tabloids tell it he has. The Daily Star says that Bey and Jay have opted to take each other’s surnames in order to keep the name Knowles alive.
A source told the paper: “They want to keep Knowles because Beyonce’s parents didn’t have any sons and they’re keen to keep the name going strong, especially if they don’t produce any children themselves.”
Indeed, with Papa Mat and Tina not producing any male sons, it seems Beyonce’s carrying on the tradition of her mother by going all out to get their last name alive.
So this rumor says Jay-Z will be known as Shawn Knowles-Carter while Queen Bey is to be known as Beyonce Knowles-Carter.
I bet most of you are reading this and not believing an ounce of it, but there are men out there who take on their wives names as a means of respect. You know, since patriarchy should be played out by now. If this rumor were true, would that be so bad?
