Picture it: Jay-Z is walking to his rotunda, saying to his wife Beyonce, “I’m the Dude, so that’s what you call me. That or, uh, His Dudeness or, uh, Duder, or El Duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.” While on any other day this would be pure crazy talk, it isn’t today. That’s because Jay and Bey are renting Jeffrey Lebowski’s house from The Big Lebowski for 150,000 American dollars a month.
So now, at a dinner party, Jay-Z will be correcting dignitaries like Kanye West or Prince William by saying “She’s not my special lady, she’s my f–king lady friend.”
As for Beyonce? Well, she’ll be fiercely drinking her White Russians and constantly uttering “The Dude abides.” She will of course be referring to herself, because they are both The Dude in this house.
But why are they doing this? Well, Bey and Jay are actually big fans of the movie. Beyonce used a French version of Maude Lebowski’s monologue in her song “Partition,” which is pretty fangirl-y if you ask us. The house has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool, a dance studio, library/screening room and spa.
The couple have signed a one-year lease, so it’s nothing but bowling and White Russians for them for the next 365 days.
