    photoshop, please!

  • http://www.myspace.com/onepackage j-lo843

    That is one ugly *** pic of Jay-Z.

  • karaz

    Sad thing is that there probably was plenty of photoshopping, and this is the best that could be produced… I wish everyone would take pictures of him in the shadows only.

  • Naima

    Wow this is worse than the Mary J Blige cover, Beyonce and Jay Z, the real Beauty and the Beast. Messin up daddy Matthew and mama Tina gene’s with all that oogly.

  • MAJAHINEVERYWAY

    He better be happy his ass has money. There is no way in hell he would have gotten “B” if he didn’t. DAMN!

  • Cee

    It’s funny how money can make a man attractive, i.e. Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, etc., but there are times when all the money in the world can’t make a person look any better than what they realy look like! He has an undeniably sexy swag, but this pic of Joe-Z is HIDEOUS!!

  • cinnamonkisses97

    I am admiring that Muller on his wrist .

  • candi21

    ewww not CUTE !! Beyonce better hope (if she wants kids) they look like her family…LOL

  • BayArea

    (In the voice of the fool chris) LEAVE JAY-Z ALONE!!!!! :)

  • Dynasty

    @ Naima – I don’t know if the Knowles genes are THAT strong. Let’s not forget Baby Daniel. While I am sure that he is a sweet kid, lil lite bright isn’t the most handsome little guy. Bless his heart.

  • missdisrection

    HATERS!!!!!:-)

  • Cee

    Dynasty, I wanted to say it, but dammit you had the balls to go ahead and do it! He is a little Eddie Monster looking thing! So funny looking he’s cute!

  • purepisces

    I don’t care. I love him!! =) That is all.

  • prynsexxx

    Jay, a lil Carmex wouldn’t have killed you…..it probably would have burned for a sec, but damn it wouldn’t have killed you.

    Carmex is your friend.

    ever since i first saw him, i always thought jay-z’s nose and lips were way too big for his face. lol.. he kinda looks like a puffer fish in this pic.

  • mjoylaw

    THAT’S A BAD ANGLE, HE’S DRESSED DOWN, AND HE ISN’T SMILING.

    BUT I GUESS THAT WAS THE POINT, TO MAKE HIM LOOK AS HARD AS POSSIBLE IN THIS PIC..

    WE ALL KNOW JAY’S TAKEN WAY BETTER PICTURES!!!! EVEN IF HE ISN’T COOKIE CUTTER HANDSOME

  • Sharonda

    So this was the mystery person they were hyping up???

    lol Don’t his lips always look extra dry?!

  • kitty4shigady

    Jay is the man

  • candycane

    IT’S THE ROC IN HERE!!!

    He needs to gain some weight, I dont like the extra skinny look on him. Still my boo though

  • purepisces

    @mjoylaw – He got that “lil boy smile swag” down pat, don’t he?! =D

    @candycane – He’s looking more like he did back in the “Reasonable Doubt” Days. Jay was hella skinny in the beginning, just tall and skinny…his ass was hongray! LOL! =D At least he got rid of the old man pot belly he was sportin…

  • purepisces

    Oh, and we can clearly see his “IV” tattoo in this pic. Just noticed that!

  • PAGESINADIARY

    YUK

  • Coop

    @Sandra

    It just came to me Sandra got turned down by Jay-Z back in the 90’s.

  • ReadTheBlog

    He is one ugly muthasucka!

  • avidreader

    With his swagger and confidence he’s more handsome than most of these rappers out right now!

  • dj_dceezy

    and after all these insults, he’s way more SUCCESSFUL than any of you could dream to be. ROTFL

  • MAJAHINEVERYWAY

    @dj_dceezy:

    It depends on your definition of success. Having money does not make one successful.

    ^^^^^^
    Amen to that!

  • bklynchick

    Jay Z is not the cutest thing but he can rap his azz off. I don’t like the skinny look either.

  • http://www.myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    That can’t possibly be the final cover. It looks unfinished and rough. Don’t they need to photoshop it a little. Regardless of what they do to it the pic is still not nice. It reminds me of the cover Mary J. went off about except hers was a 100 times better than this.

  • LADYTEA

    it’s been said a thousand times or more, but I have to say it again.. WHEW!!! that face is sooooooo unatractive :-( B. got to be careful having babies with that man, seems to me that nose and lips will over power any good genes she has going on.. money, swager, nothing can improve those looks.

  • luvdwun33

    I really love/hate how on a message board you guys speak so freely about things you may never say to a persons face upon meeting them. Hov may not be the most attractive man in the game but his swagger and success speaks millions. Lets remember, he definitely got the hottest chic in the game rockin’ his chain!!

  • shunda

    That can’t be the final cover. If it is Vibe needs some help in the cover department. It looks like on of the polaroids they take to test the lighting before the actual shoot.

  • maema

    Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. The overwhelming majority of people here believe that Jay-Z is an unattractive man — so-called swagger and money, notwithstanding.

    I have no problem commenting on his looks because I think it points out a double standard in the industry — a woman of similar talent and looks would NEVER make it as far.

    Almost every rapper out today is NOT attractive! (based purely on looks)

  • luvdwun33

    Maema, I agree with you 100%!! As far as women in the industry, if you don’t look as commercial as possible then trust that you won’t put up big numbers, talent or not!(i.e., Angie Stone, India Arie) I’m just saying that we all know everybody isn’t attractive per se, but you have to know how to work with what you got. Hov is doing his thing.
