On May 9, President Barack Obama became the first sitting president to announce support for same-sex marriage.  Now two of the country’s celebrity Black stars actor Will Smith and rapper/businessman Jay-Z, are backing President Obama on his controversial stance on gay marriage.

While promoting his upcoming blockbuster film “Men in Black III” in Berlin on Monday, Smith told the Associated Press that Obama’s support of gay marriage is a “brave” move particularly in an election year.

“If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form,” Smith said.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z, whose actual name is Shawn Carter, also made his pro-gay stance public, backing our president in his support of legalizing same-sex marriages.

In Philadelphia, when announcing a two-day music festival in early September, Jay-Z sat with CNN’s Poppy Harlow to discuss some issues and one of them was Obama’s startling comment about his support of gay marriage.

Jay-Z, who has stayed the course and rallied round Obama since his 2008 campaign days, told the news reporter in no uncertain terms, “I’ve always thought of it as something that was still, um, holding the country back,” Jay-Z said of not allowing same-sex couples to wed. “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. [It] is no different from discriminating against Blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.”
In the not-too-distant-past, Smith was at the center of a gay controversy himself.  There were reports that he was involved with actor and running buddy Duane MartinStar Magazine reported that Smith and Martin had maintained a gay relationship for years.  It was implied that their union was responsible for the downfall of Smith’s marriage to Jada.  The rumors of Smith’s possible sexual preference began to pick up steam after he completed the 1993 film “Six Degrees of Separation,” where he portrayed a gay college student.
