(Newser) – Justin Bieber might have some kind of hotline to Bill Clinton, but Jay-Z has one to President Obama. They're texting buddies. Jay-Z revealed as much in an interview with radio station Hot97, reports Politico. The president uses lots of sports analogies, says Jay-Z, offering up this example:
