As they stood on a sidewalk, she compared the sight to her favorite video game “Grand Theft Auto” which actually happened to be his favorite game as well.
He told New York times saying: “I very coolly said, ‘All right, you’re going to come over to my house tonight, and we’re going to play Grand Theft Auto and watch the Jay-Z movie and listen to Marc Anthony.”
