Rapper Jay-Z: My Wife Beyonce Is “Magnificent”

What Beyonce wants, Beyonce gets!

In the new issue of Rolling Stone, the R&B diva's typically tight-lipped husband, Jay-Z, recalls when he brought home a black-and-white photograph of a pistol with a pair of women's legs emerging from the handle — and the Missus made him send it back!

"It was more of a masculine style, I guess," the rapper, 40, admits.

But like any good wife, Beyonce, 28, compromised with her hubby. She later had the artwork replaced with a similar piece, only this time with a perfume bottle instead of a gun.

As expected, the rapper avoids discussing his marriage in detail — though he does admit he is a fan of "Telephone," her music video with Lady Gaga — and instead praises her musical prowess.

"Sometimes on creative stuff, one of us will ask 'Do you think this is cool?' She's a magnificent A&R, if she ever decides to do that," Jay-Z says. "So I defer to her on those sort of questions. But overall, we pretty much like the same things."

But with such busy schedules, when will the hip hop mogul and his wife of two years finally settle down and start a family?

"Maybe in two or three years," a pal tells UsMagazine.com.
