KING is mostly known for scantily
clad women, but Jermaine Dupri has tossed some disparaging words at comedian Chris
Rock in the latest issue of the men’s magazine.
The comments to the “illest men’s magazine” come under the premise
of a mock bachelor party for the Virgin Records president, who is also singer
Janet Jackson’s boyfriend.
However relaxed the setting, J.D. stated, “If you say anything about anybody
who got what you want, it’s a statement of jealousy. It’s like you end up dating
someone that people wanted to date their whole life, so people are crushed by
it. Chris Rock probably ain’t married to the person he wants to be married to
and when he sees me, he’s like "Damn! How? Why?" I look at it like that’s
just part of their job, too. When people make jokes, they make jokes on what’s
hot. At the time, me and Janet were a big conversation piece.”
While no formal wedding plans have been announced, the So So Def mogul said that
African-Americans haven’t championed his girlfriend’s sibling Michael,
in an acceptable manner.
“It’s clear that Michael was set up. Michael Jackson is a generous dude.
He’s in The Guinness Book of World Records for giving. He gives the most to people
and people take advantage of that,” J.D. explained to KING. “What’s
foolish about it is that our own community jokes about it. If Elvis were still
alive, they would never let anything happen to him.”
Free of BET graces the cover of the magazine’s latest issue and she’s
not the demure, affable host that appears on “106 & Park.”
Among other spicy details, the Boston native explained why she was reluctant to
pose for the publication.
“I was a little shy with the concept of “Take off your clothes and
put your butt in the camera” [laughs]. But we had a good time and I’m
ready for it now. I don’t think I was ready for it before,” Free said.
The magazine is already on newsstands in New York City and is being distributed
