Jay Z was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last night and some people think that former President Barack Obama’s pre-recorded message at the ceremony revealed the gender of Mr. and Mrs. Carter’s twins!

Are we reading too much into this?  You be the judge! Forty seven seconds into the video former President Obama says, “Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s going to have me beat once those two twins show up.”

I love when he says, “and let’s face it, we both have wives who are significantly more popular than we are.”

According to Variety, Jay Z was not at the ceremony to accept his award.  His “longtime friend and music publisher, Warner/Chappell CEO Jon Platt, appeared instead and delivered a third-person interpretation of some of the things he believed Jay would want to say.”  You can read his speech here.
