Gayle King’s Groveling Over Jay-Z Paid Off – Even Though Oprah Told Her Leave Him Alone | WATCH

*In an interview with Access Hollywood’s Scott Evans, Gayle King revealed that she got her coveted interview interview with Jay-Z, but it took some groveling on her part.

Yep, as the “CBS Mornings” co-host put it, she “groveled” over him … she just couldn’t let it go. She was hell-bent on interviewing Jigga.

In that Access Hollywood quickie with Evans (watch it above), King said her many, many attempts to get a 1-on-1 with the entertainment mogul caused her BFF Oprah Winfrey to tell her that she should give up the ghost. He ain’t feeling you.

“Even Oprah said, ‘You are making a damn fool of yourself. Stop asking him. He doesn’t want to do it.’ But I couldn’t let it go,” Gayle said. “I don’t know why he said yes or why he changed his mind … I’m just grateful that he did.”

Welp. Looks like Oprah was WRONG.

King and Hov finally got to sit down together, and Jay-Z opened up about everything from his career and family life to the hypothetical internet debate about whether a person should choose $500,000 instead of a chance to have lunch with him.

“You’ve gotta take the money. You’ve got all that in the music for $10.99,” he said. “I wouldn’t tell you to cut a bad deal. Like, take the $500,000, go buy some albums, and listen to the albums.”

Jay-Z and King hooked up for an exclusive tour of “The Book of HOV,” an exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library that explores his work and career, notes CNN.

The interview aired on CBS. Watch a couple of clips below.
