GQ Talks to Kelly Rowland

GQ.com: What’s your favourite lyric on the album?
Kelly Rowland: Gosh, there are several different ones. One I think that sticks out on the whole album is this one lyric that I was actually a little nervous to say at first. It’s a part on “Motivation” where I say, “I don’t wanna feel my legs.”

Should we thank you or Big Sean for the GQ shout-out in “Lay It On Me”?
Both of us! No problem. He’s wonderful. I love Sean. I love his energy and I hope this is not our last collaboration together.

When were you last starstruck?
Probably with Whitney Houston a few years ago at what was then the Nikko Hotel [now the SLS in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles]. She was so nice but I just remember not being able to say anything because I was so struck.

Peep the rest of the article:

Who’s your best-dressed British man?
I’d say because I’m seeing him every week it’s probably Gary Barlow. I loved his purple Dolce jacket that he wore the other week. Ooh, so clean! I was like, “I couldn’t even touch you right now.” He was like [adopts passable Gary accent], “Don’t be funny, Kelly.” But he’s awesome. He has a great sense of style.

What do you like to see on a guy clothes-wise?
I love a clean, very classic look. Probably just a nice shirt with a sweater and you can see the collar. I like it when the shirt and the sweater compliment each other.

Have you noticed any differences in how British and American men dress?
Absolutely. The pants over here are a little bit tighter than the ones in the States. [laughs] But it’s cute. Actually I just finished a tour with Chris Brown and I noticed that he always wears his pants just a little bit tighter than other American guys. It’s a good thing. Sometimes when they’re a little bit too tight like Frankie [Cocozza], l’m just wondering if they can breathe down there…

What’s the most important item on your rider?
Red M&Ms… I’m just kidding. The only thing I really love is Fiji water. That’s like the only crazy request - I don’t like any other water.

Jay-Z Covers GQ Magazine “Men of the Year” Issue


He was rich enough to provide, years ago. But he wanted to be rich enough to be present—to leave rap alone for a while, if necessary, and not in a trumped-up pseudoretirement kind of way.

"Providing—that’s not love," he says. "Being there—that’s more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They’re crying out for attention; they’re hurting for love. I’m not being judgmental—I’m just making an observation. They’re crying out for the love that maybe they didn’t get at home, and they got everything. All the material things that they need and want. So we know that’s not the key.”

The Isley Brothers’ “Between the Sheets”—the epochal quiet-storm jam that Sean Combs built Biggie’s equally epochal “Big Poppa” around—comes on the restaurant’s speakers. Jay tunes out for a minute. “I grew up listening to this,” he says with a smile. That’s art workin’. I ask if little Bey-Z will grow up listening to his catalog, and Jay says of course—when the time comes, he’ll start with Reasonable Doubt, go from there. “There will be a lot of that,” he says. “And a lot of other records, all pivotal, important records. There’ll be Ready to Die, there’ll be Illmatic.”

So will the God MC be changing diapers?

"Of course, of course. One hundred percent."

And will we see you putting the car seat in the Maybach?

"Yeah," Jay smiles. "Wouldn’t that be great? That would be a great picture."
