Hip-hop artist Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce are obsessed with modern art and now want to open a gallery near home.
According to mirror.co.uk, the couple spent quite a bit of money and Jay-Z now considers himself a critic. He even wants to open a gallery close to his Manhattan home.
Jay-Z said: "Bey is really into art and now I am too. I'm building a collection but at the moment I am just buying things I like and seeing where it takes me. I have a lot of pieces from Damien Hirst and Richard Price - they are incredible artists. Damien Hirst's Beat Life, Cheat Death piece was actually inspired by one of my songs, so that was cool. When I finally hang up the microphone I could even exhibit my own collection."
