This spring, Jay Z premiered his overly-ambitious and arguably ill-advised music streaming service, Tidal. And turns out he’s got about as much faith in it as the next guy—which is to say not at all.

Jay was testifying—under oath—when he omitted Tidal from his best hits list—and who could blame him? Via Page Six:

“I make music. I’m a rapper. I’ve got a clothing line. I run a label . . . Roc Nation, with a sports agency, music publishing and management . . . restaurants and nightclubs. I think that about covers it.” When Bart reminded him, “You have a music-streaming service, don’t you?”

Jay admitted of the service, Tidal, “Yeah, yeah. Forgot about that.”

Stars—they’re just like us.
