Jay-Z Doesn't care Beyonce make more money
While Jay and Bey were declared to be the world's richest celebrity couple in 2013, it's been determined that Ms. Knowles made $11 million more than her uber-successful husband this past year. Farnoosh Torabi, author of "When She Makes More: 10 Rules For Breadwinning Women, " joined HuffPost Live on Friday to explain why Jay Z is cool with it.
A man who makes $45, 000 and is married to woman who makes $500, 000 may feel some inadequacy, but when a couple is as wealthy as Beyonce and Jay Z, the disparity becomes less significant, Torabi said.
"When you're talking millions and millions dollars, it sort of all doesn't really matter, " she told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani.
And there are many other factors that go beyond a paycheck, which Torabi pointed out Jay Z has in spades.
"It's not always just about money. Sometimes it comes down to education and how successful you feel in your career. If Beyonce is making $11 million more than Jay Z but Jay Z's getting more press and he's more in the spotlight, he's getting validation for what he's doing as a mogul and a producer and a brand, then that may be enough for him. It's not about the money, " she said.
