Nas Defends Gwyneth Paltrow: She's 'A Real N***a'
Another black musician has come forward to support Gwyneth Paltrow for her infamous but highly criticized "N*ggas in Paris" tweet last week.
Nas told CBS Local exclusively, "I would slap the s**t out of somebody for Gwyneth Paltrow. She's the homie, she's cool. Gwyneth gets a pass. Real people get a pass. We know what this s**t is. We don't interrupt Italians when they say 'Wop' to each other. They gonna punch you in the mouth if you interrupt that. Don't interrupt us. We pick and choose... Gwyneth Paltrow is a real n***a, that's my homie. That's how I'm on it. Some people get a pass."
On June 1, Paltrow accompanied her best pal Beyonce to watch the singer's husband Jay Z perform with Kanye West during their "Watch The Throne" tour stop in Paris, France, and the actress was thrilled to go onstage during a special remix of their single "N**gas in Paris."
The actress later tweeted a photo of herself with the rappers and wrote "Ni**as in paris for real." Responding to the online uproar to her tweet, she later clarified, "Hold up. It's the title of the song!"
