GQ Names Jay-Z International Man of the Year

Hip-Hop superstar and business

mogul Jay-Z was named International Man of the Year at GQ’s annual GQ’s

Men of the Year Awards last night in London.

The rapper was presented

with his award by Jade Jagger, daughter of legendary Rolling Stones front man,

Mick Jagger.

Jay-Z appeared at the glitzy

event in a white suit, white and red pinstriped shirt, black tie and black shades.

"The secret is to wear

the suit, don’t let the suit wear you," Jay-Z said. Jagger was wearing

a necklace with a diamond pendant that Jay-Z, known for his diamond collection,

even took notice of.

“I dig your jewelry,”

Jay-Z said in jest.

Others honored at the men’s

magazine’s annual awards included Live 8 organizer Bob Geldof, who won

the Outstanding Contribution Award and Charlotte Church, who was named Woman of

the Year.

Coldplay, Morrissey, Pierce

Brosnan, Simon Cowell, Daniel Craig and others were honored at the event, which

took place at Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The GQ Men of the Year Awards

was hosted by Rory Bremner. Last year another rapper, Outkast’s Andre

“3000” Benjamin won International Man of the Year honors.
