As you know I reported last year that Jay Z took it hard when producers of the film "American Gangster" passed him over for actor Denzel Washington for the role of heroine dealer Frank Lucas. The decision was a no brainer, but Jay Z took the slight to heart.

Denzel and Jay Z met up Tuesday night at 1st Class Entertainment/Universal Records' R&B Live Showcase at Spotlight in NYC. My spies tell me the two men were cordial to each other but they didn't take pics together.

We are loving Jay Z's Louis Vuitton man purse! He can't be half bad with taste like that!

Check out more pics from the party.

    YOU KNOW.

    Who gives a freak about Jay Z being mad. He kills me, both Him and Beyonce act like they're some kind of royalty and every person on the planet has to bow down to them. Truth be told, Jay Z retired but when nobody was checking for him, he came back out & allegedly saved the rap game aka Captain Save-A-Camel-Ho. Beyonce is never going to have his baby just for the single fact that once she's out of the spotlight, that's it for her career but who knows Beyonce probably go on a world tour the day after birth. Let's stop hyping these people in 08 and hype some people who are about positive change and not shaking their asses. I can't think of one black (young) singer who hasn't pooped her ass, or used their bodies to sell sex.
    We bringing sistahs back in the 08!

    Jay has stated he didn't try out for that role because he is not an actor and I believe him. His star power would have afforded him the ability to get many acting gigs by now yet we never see him doing it. As for the purse, it's clearly not his, but it's nice to see my girl Sandra back to form. That nice girl act was just too fake.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    YOU REALLY ARE SPECIAL SANDRA. BY THE WAY THEY WENT TO DINNER THE SAME NIGHT AS WELL. YU STAY TRYING TO DISSECT THIS MAN, FOR YOU TO NOT CARE MUCH ABOUT HIM, YOU STAY PRINTING UP STORIES ABOUT HIM. HE AND DENZEL ARE COOL, WHY IS THAT A PROBLEM FOR YOU?

    FYI FOR ANYONE INTERESTED, THERE ARE PICTURES AT BEYONCEWORLD.NET OF DENZEL, BEYONCE AND OTHERS LEAVING THE RESTAURANT. YOU CAN SEE JAY'S BODYGUARD AND HIM IN THE BACKGROUND.

    Here we go I knew it wouldn't be long b4 someone had something to say about Jigga first of all much as I like him as a artist he would not have been good for that role Denzel killed it just like every other movies he has touched!! As far as them beefing over it highly unlikely!! Sandra get another topic!! TO Melb2008 I can name Alicia Keys as a young singer who doesn't do all of the things you described & as far as no one checking for Jay he will always be on the scene even if he had stayed retired his hands are in too much so is Beyonce she got the clothes, the phone, the Armani thing poppin off!! I by no means am a STAN as you all put it to her or Jay (well maybe Jay) lmao but I just see the things they have accomplished & are trying to build cause we all know you won't be able to sing, rap & dance forever!! Sandra you know damn well that ain't his bag that is in the chair in front of him I don't even know why I commented cause you can clearly see that!!

  • ReadTheBlog

  • Caron02

  • aqtpie

    LMAO @ this post. Sandra you know good and well Jay didn't even try out for that role.

    GEEE OOOH DEEEEE....please let that not be his man purse.

  • Teachturn

    Sandra, I love your website. You post some interesting entertainment news. But, you are by far the biggest hater in the universe. I know damned well that you see that Jay is leaning over to another table and that is where that purse is. I don't know what Jay and Bee did to you, but I wish thy would apologize and you could move on.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    TBROWN, I AM NOT A STAN, BUT I DO USE COMMON SENSE WHEN READING AN ARTICLE AND LOOKING AT PICTURES. I GUESS YOU CAN ONLY SEE WHAT SANDRA SAYS IS IN THE PICTURE? JAY AND DENZEL AREN'T EVEN AT THE SAME TABLE. IF YOU NOTICED JAY IS TURNED AROUND FROM HIS TABLE. IT'S EVIDENT THAT IT BELONGS TO THE YOUNG LADY WITH THE BLUE SHIRT ON SINCE IT IS SITTING NEXT TO HER. MAYBE YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT THE REST OF THE PICTURES. I AM SURE SANDRA DID AS WELL, BUT SHE NEEDED SOMETHING TO STIR UP POSTS ON THE STORY.

  • Aquariuz121

    If you notice really closely, that is not Jay's man purse. He is reaching over a chair from a completely different table. He is reaching over the purse which I'm guessing belongs to the lady in the picture.

  • TooTot

    HE CANT BE THAT BAD? Your the only one who despises him Sandra because he took the woman you want - Beyonce!

    ANd your the only one who SAID he was UPSET ABOUT IT!

    I Must say these men just look better and better with time...Ooh I love my sexy brothers.

    Damn...it is 08 and she at it again.

    Denzel stated on 106 and Park that the rumors weren't true and he wish Jay much success with his CD.

    Thanks Smokie for pointing out the purse wasn't his. Girl I wasn't even paying attention:)!!!
