Jay Z And Beyonce Anniversary Vacation Comes Under Fire.

A visit to Cuba by US pop singer Beyonce and her rap star husband Jay-Z is coming under scrutiny in connection with the US economic embargo. The embargo technically prohibits all US tourism to the island, which is inconvenient for BeyoncĂ© and Jay-Z because as a result of the unexpected attention their visit attracted, the inevitable inquisition has followed.
Two Republican members of Congress have requested official information on whether the couple had the required US government permission to travel to the island.

"The restrictions on tourism travel are common-sense measures meant to prevent US dollars from supporting a murderous regime that opposes US security interests at every turn and which ruthlessly suppresses the most basic liberties of speech, assembly and belief," the politicians write. To add to the heat, the anti-Castro lobby group Cuba Democracy Advocates, based in Washington, accused the couple of being "extremely insensitive". "There are women getting beaten on a daily basis, people are fighting for their freedom," the group's director Mauricio Claver-Carone told celebrity news website TMZ.
