Beyonce and Jay-Z Are In Cuba Right Now

Beyonce and Jay-Z are dangerously in love, and are apparently celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary possibly illegally. The two were spotted in Havana, Cuba, yesterday, which, you know, might be against U.S. law.

According to The AP, Jay-Z and King B were spotted eating at the La Guarida restaurant last night, a restaurant that has hosted several celebrities before, including Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster, Danny Glover, Will Smith, and Jim Belushi.

Fans of course got word rather quickly, and assembled outside shouting Beyonce's name. Eventually the singer came out to wave.

The pair then spent today touring colonial Havana while Jay puffed away on a Cuban. Apparently that "Welcome to Havana / Smoking Cubana's with Castro in cabanas" line "Otis" came at least partially true.

No one is really sure how legal the trip is. The embargo forbids Americans from traveling to Cuba for tourism reasons, but exceptions are made for people traveling for academic, journalistic, religious and cultural reasons.

The pair's publicists would not inform the AP as to why exactly the couple is there.

While The Miami Herald has reigned in the Wild West of its comment section lately, there is of course some debate going on:

And obviously it's front-page news over at El Nuevo.

As a citizen of the world, I can go wherever I please. No Miami YUCA is to tell me where to and not-to go... NONE!! No wonder most newcomers end up in Tampa or places like Lancaster PA, since they can't get used to this "Cubaneo".

Most likely they wanted to taste what a racist apartheid system a la South Africa is all about since they were too young to visit and enjoy a vacation in South Africa when the system was on.

Who cares! By going or not going, its not going to change a thing. I say we remove the damn embargo, trade with the island, and treat them like we do everyone else like China, Russia, Venezuela etc.

Gotta love the ignorance displayed here in the comments. Flights to havana leave every day from several US airports. Silly uniformed fools making silly comments here seem ignorant of the fact that she's there as a Unicef ambassador.

@ Roy Gonzalez, I don't have anything against Cubans. Just that Puta Fidel and his Comrades. Jay Z raps about selling crack anyway. He is no hero to black people just another rich enemy.

@Phil Ramirez Interesting how people so concerned with freedom for Cubans in Cuba want to  prohibit American citizens from travelling freely.
