The Jay-Z and Beyonce ‘Chillin’ with Apartheid’ tour in Cuba

More coverage of Jay-Z and Beyonce's "Chillin' with Apartheid" tour in Cuba to promote the rampant apartheid on the communist island run by a dictatorial, white European family of racists.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z stroll in Havana

Dozens of Cubans crowded around R&B diva Beyoncé and husband-rapper Jay-Z as they toured Old Havana on Thursday after celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary with island staples like daiquiris, and rice and black beans.

“People outside were desperate to see them and we had to call security, we had to call the police,” said La Guarida restaurant waitress Vivian Aimerich, who helped serve the superstars during their anniversary dinner Wednesday night.

The couple drew even bigger crowds Thursday as they strolled the streets of Old Havana like any other tourists, with Beyoncé wearing a short summer dress and big sunglasses and Jay-Z smoking a cigar and wearing a straw hat, shorts, and sneakers.

They visited the Havana Cathedral, built between 1748 and 1777, and walked around the cobblestoned streets of the colonial-era neighborhood, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z spoke with several Cubans during their walk but declined to answer journalists’ questions on their visit to the communist-ruled island.

The government-run CubaSí website reported the couple is on a tourist visit, although that would be illegal under the half-century old U.S. embargo. Washington does issue special licenses, however, for cultural, religious, academic, and other types of visits.

ICM talent agency in Los Angeles said it had no information on the visit. Beyoncé’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure in New York, did not return El Nuevo Herald calls.

The superstar couple was first spotted in Cuba on Wednesday night as they entered La Guarida, “The Hideout,” a restaurant on an upper floor of a crumbling early 1900s palace where the hit Cuban film Strawberry and Chocolate was filmed.

    What’s wrong with her right knee? And her legs look funny. His legs are too skinny, and those oversize sneakers only emphasize it. Does he realize how stupid he looks with that cigar? Of course, he looks pretty stupid without it. Who are those ghastly women behind them? One looks like Bianca Jagger after major Botox, and the other looks like an ugly transvestite who’d give RuPaul nightmares. Just another freak show at the zoo.

    The same but bigger photo used by Fontova's post below gives a better idea.
