American rapper and businessman Jay-Z likes people to criticize him because this helps him to stay grounded.
“The reason I have been grounded is because I have allowed my friends to come with me and voice an opinion. They are not afraid to tell me what they think of me or my album,” contactmusic.com quoted Jay-Z as saying.
“People who don’t know you, you don’t know their motives. It’s the people whom you know for ages keep you grounded,” he added.
