Jay-Z talks about daughter Blue Ivy (19 photos)

Jay-Z added exposure to his name after premiering his "Watch the Throne" documentary at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Check out some interview highlights from New York Times T Men's Fashion Magazine below.

On how his music has evolved:
"I didn't have enough life experience, so what I was doing was more technical. I was trying to impress technically. To do things other people cannot do. As I started getting life experiences, I realized my power was in conveying emotions that people felt."

On his daughter Blue Ivy growing up in today's world:
"She doesn't have to be tough. She has to love herself, she has to know who she is, she has to be respectful, and be a moral person."

    This "dude" has consistently referred to women as bitches.

      I don't refer to women as bitches, but then I would use the term 'bitch' as an insult. Does he? Does his genre of music not use the term 'bitch' as I may use the term chick? I don't know the correct answer, but think the context and social group meaning of words is very important.

      E.g. My grandma thought that my dress was really 'gay'. You know exactly what she means, as you understand the different meaning from different social groups. You know she doesn't mean I have a homosexual dress- just a bright, happy one!!
