Jay-Z on fatherhood: Being there is most important

Kelly Rowland has mentioned on the red carpet that Beyonce and Jay-Z's little girl - assuming the superstar soon-to-be mom is in fact having a girl in February - will get everything she could ever desire from her industry mogul dad.

"Providing - that's not love," the rapper tells GQ. "Being there - that's more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They're crying out for attention; they're hurting for love. I'm not being judgmental, I'm just making an observation. They're crying out for love they didn't get at home, and they got everything. All the material things they could need and want. So we know that's not the key."
