Beyonce Defends Her and Jay-Z’s Trip to Cuba

Remember when Beyonce and Jay-Z went to Cuba for their fifth wedding anniversary and everyone got all up in arms about? Well, even though the United States has for decades upheld laws that basically tell Americans not to travel to Cuba, Beyonce says she was still shocked by the amount of flack she received for going there.

She told ABC News on Monday:

You know, it was such a beautiful trip.  I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs.  And it was really, it was really educational for me.  I learned so much about so many people and the country.

The couple went to Cuba in April. Afterward, Jay-Z defended the trip in a rap that seemed to imply that everything was personally approved by President Barack Obama.

Obama promptly put him in his place.
