Jay-Z Denies Blackballing Chris Brown From BET Awards

Hov also talks about calling Game 'groupie' on Blueprint 3.

“Tell groupie to get over it.” [artist id="1269"]Jay-Z[/artist] says he didn’t dis the [artist id="1340778"]Game[/artist], but he hasn’t exactly been losing sleep over the former G-Unit rapper taking his words in the Blueprint 3 intro as a insult.

“If that’s a dis, then wear that,” Jay told radio personality Tim Westwood while in Europe promoting the album. “Tell groupie to get over it.”

Westwood also asked Jay his thoughts on the videotaped apology Chris Brown released on Monday.

“We’re all flawed human beings. All a person can do is apologize,” Jay said. “That’s it, what can we say? You know everyone should be allowed to make mistakes. It happens.”

Hov also denied that he had a hand in blackballing [artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] from performing at the recent BET Awards during a tribute to Michael Jackson . The big rumor was that Jay told BET that neither he nor [artist id="1236911"]Beyoncé[/artist] would perform at the June award show if Brown was allowed to take the stage. BET and a source close to Brown discounted the rumor to MTV News in the wake of the show.

“That’s the silliest rumor I ever heard,” Jay told Westwood. “You know me, right? I was sitting back and watching all them suckas [comment]. You don’t comment on rumors. I was sitting back watching them. ‘Look at them. That’s so silly.’ First, let me categorically deny that. If I have a problem with Chris Brown, I got a problem with Chris Brown. I don’t agree with what he did and that’s that.”

Hov said for him to impose his will on BET would have been a sucka move and for people to come out and comment on the rumor was also a sucka move.

“This one was funny,” he said of the rumor. “I was sitting back like, ‘Look at them, they all stupid.’ I didn’t do it, I wouldn’t do it. That’s not how I deal with my problems, through using BET or record companies.”

It’s no secret Jay and Rihanna are close. The singer and Kanye West appear on the next single from The Blueprint 3, “Run This Town.”

“We basically run this town,” Jay said. “It’s myself, Rihanna and Kanye. It’s pretty much it.”
