Jay Z and Beyonce

In an interview, Jay Z said that problems in his childhood caused him to build up walls, which made him shut down and cheat. He spoke from the heart and said,

The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you have caused and then have to deal with yourself. You have to survive so you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions.

He further added,

So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things happen there: infidelity.
