Yesterday outside of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Jay-Z announced his plans to bring a two-day music festival to the city of brother love. It is all about to go down this September, but despite his very busy life as a business man and musician, Jay told Billboard that he really just wants to take some time off to spend with his daughter Blue Ivy.
“I thought I would be more inspired to have all these new feelings to talk about, but I really just want to hang out with my daughter. I want to enjoy this time for what it is. I’m sure that bug to get back in the studio will come back at some point.”
But it seems as if Jay’s schedule is going to be pretty jam packed and he’ll have to wait until July to spend some real quality time with Blue.
He adds, “Tomorrow I leave to go on the ["Watch The Throne"] European tour – that’ll be through June. In July I’ll take some time off, so when we get into August I’ll have to prep for really this show and the arena show.”
Jay also announced his new relationship with Duracell. He explained, “The future of it is really exciting. At some point you’ll be able to take your iPhone or whatever device and put some paper under it and it’ll charge wirelessly. The idea of that and the conversation around energy, the whole idea is really exciting. Any partnership I’m in has to get to a real, on-point, genius level. I’m not really into slapping my name on a product. You know how scientists say we have an insane amount of energy that will be saved just by not plugging in? I want to help put that footprint on the world.”
