Beyonce, Jay-Z Ditch 2012 Grammys for Brooklyn Pizza
Who needs Grammy gold, red carpet gowns and tuxes and catered food when you can nosh on some pizza in Brooklyn? That's just what music power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z did on Sunday (Feb. 12). The pair skipped Music's Biggest Night in favor of some low-key grub in the Hova's native borough.
Us Weekly reports that Bey and Jay hopped in a Maybach, left their downtown Tribeca crib and headed to the Carroll Gardens neighborhood in Brooklyn to dine at Lucali, a fancy pizzeria. They did not tote daughter Blue Ivy with them for this food outing.
A witness claimed Jayonce were just like any other other couple, "talking and whatnot." The presence of two celebrity A-listers didn't cause a big fuss with other customers, either, even as the couple sat "in front of the place closer to where they make the pizza." They probably wanted to inhale to intoxicating aroma of dough, cheese and sauce!
A source said that Beyonce bid adieu to the owner and their waitress on her way out and Jay-Z was cordial at the congrats he received from a fellow diner over their newborn daughter Blue Ivy's birth.
Meanwhile, nearly 3000 miles away, Jay picked up a Grammy in absentia for Best Rap Performance for 'Otis.'
