This Story Of SNL’s Jay Pharoah Meeting Jay Z And Beyoncé Is Hilarious
Jay likes Jay’s impression!
Comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member Jay Pharoah is known for, among other things, his incredibly accurate impersonation of Jay Z. (You can watch video of him doing it at the ESPYs above.) We're a fan of it—and so is Jay Z, apparently! Pharoah told Page Six that he met Jay and Beyoncé at the SNL 40 afterparty, and it was all love: "At the after-party, Jay Z came up to me and said, 'What up, fake Jay Z, hahaha,' and he just walked off...Beyoncé was like, 'I don't want to say anything about you because I don't want you to impersonate me.'"
I'll be honest, I just imagined Pharoah doing an impression of Jay Z talking to Pharoah about his Jay Z impression and I just entered a total mind-melting time warp. Save me please.
