(HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) — Marco Rubio is demanding an explanation from the Obama administration on Beyonce and Jay-Z’s controversial trip to Cuba

In a statement Monday via Politico, the Florida Senator said: “According to recent news reports, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Cuba trip, which the regime seized on for propaganda purposes, was fully licensed by the Treasury Department.

“The duo celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in the communist country, where they toured Havana and attended a concert featuring local musicians.
