Jay-Z has one (final) word (for now) on wife Beyoncé's possible pregnancy: No.

"I really sit back and wonder when people are going to stop," he said on Howard Stern's radio show Monday, when asked about the rumors by the show's co-host Robin Quivers. "The day that happens, I don't think Newsday is going to know before my grandmother."

The rapper, who is notorious for keeping mum on his personal life, added, "Everyone knows I'm married, I just don't discuss it because it's a part of my life that I'd rather keep private."

Meanwhile, Jay-Z was happy to elaborate when asked about his controversial pal Kanye West. "It was bad timing, but it was absolutely an honest emotion," he said of West's statement that George W. Bush "hates black people."

Continues Jay-Z, "We all felt like that. We didn't feel like Katrina was a natural disaster. We felt like it was an attack on black people."
