That Adorable Lady Who Rode the Subway With Jay-Z Reviewed ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ [VIDEO]

Back in October, Jay-Z caused a stir when he rode the subway to a concert — but the most memorable part of the whole thing was that he wound up next to an older white woman who had no idea who he was, leading to an unlikely and utterly adorable exchange.

Thankfully for all of us, she’s now back in the media with a review of Mr. Carter’s new album ‘Magna Carter Holy Grail’ (albeit not next to the real Magna Carta or anything).

Ellen Grossman, who appeared in Jay’s documentary ‘Where I’m From,’ was enlisted by MTV to get her feedback on the album — which, despite mixed reviews, she really enjoyed. (Us too, Ms. Grossman. Us too.)

“It sounded like he’s really going deep into his heart and into fatherhood and even the meaning of fame. [He’s saying] that the money’s nice, but that having things … there’s life beyond that, that he’s exploring,” Ellen explained in her sweet, soothing voice.

“I picked that up from the papers but I felt it in the man too, you know, when I met him. That he had a depth to him.”

Check out the entire video above to see all her praise. And then imagine what kind of sweater she’d knit him.
