Beyoncé Knowles was ever the supportive girlfriend Wednesday night at the VH1 Storytellers taping of Jay-Z’s special Jay-Z: Life of an American Gangster.

Knowles was hanging out in the back of Brooklyn’s Steiner Studios – dancing and cheering to every song during Jay-Z’s nearly two hour taping. As he performed the songs from his upcoming American Gangster album, Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter) took the audience on a narrative tour of the inspiration behind each song.

Jay-Z appeared rather jovial and joked with the audience: “Can I get my Lindsay Lohan on?” before launching into a new track about “addictions to the game” called “Sweet.” Laughing about his own comment, Jay-Z then asked, “That’s too far, huh? They’re gonna have to edit that out.”

Jay-Z: Life of an American Gangster premieres on VH1, Thursday, Nov. 8 at 9 p.m.
