Jay Z, sits dapper as ever I’m sure courtesy of my home girl June Ambrose, on the cover of Vanity Fair’s “New Establishment” issue in an all-white tuxedo and black bow tie as he gives a “I’m hot shhhh” smirk for the camera. Hov looks like he’s living on top of the world as always, which I would be too if I was him. This isn’t Jay’s first time at the rodeo. Jay Z’s been on the cover of Vanity Fair before; he first appeared on the front of the sought after publication in November 2007 alongside George Clooney for their work in Africa. How are you guys liking the cover?! Homie is looking quite spiffy….which I adore!
In the magazine Jay says that although 18 month old daughter,Blue Ivy watches Beyonce’s concerts on the computer every night,she’s always asking Daddy to play more of his Magna Carta Holy Grail album,awwww how cute!!1
JAY ON TRYING TO DATE BEYONCE IN 2001:
Jay says that when he and Beyoncé were both featured on the cover of Vanity Fair’s 2001 Music Issue “we were just beginning to try to date each other.” Try? “Well, you know, you’ve got to try first. You got to dazzle . . . wine and dine.” He tells Robinson that “of course” he pursued Beyoncé, and when asked if he hadn’t been Jay Z—say, he had been a gas-station attendant and she pulled up—would he have been able to date her, he responds, “If I’m as cool as I am, yes. But she’s a charming Southern girl, you know, she’s not impressed. . . . But I would have definitely had to be this cool.” Jay confirms that the line on his latest album, “She was a good girl ’til she knew me” is about Beyoncé, and when Robinson asks if she’s not a good girl anymore, Jay laughs, saying, “Nah. She’s gangsta now.”
JAY ON THE RUMORS THAT BEYONCE DIDN’T CARRY BLUE IVY:
As for the rumors of Beyoncé’s not really having been pregnant with their first child, Jay tells Robinson, “I don’t even know how to answer that. It’s just so stupid. You know, I felt dismissive about it, but you’ve got to feel for her. I mean, we’ve got a really charmed life, so how can we complain? But when you think about it, we’re still human beings. . . . And even in hip-hop, all the blogs—they had a field day with it. I’m like, We come from you guys, we represent you guys. Why are you perpetuating this? Why are you adding fuel to this ridiculous rumor?”
