Kanye West Named as one of GQ Magazine’s Men of the Year

USA Today reports that GQ magazine has named Kanye West as one of their 2007 Men of the Year. ‘Ye will appear on one of three covers, with former President Bill Clinton and actor Daniel Craig gracing the other two. Although the rapper does not discuss the sudden tragic passing of his mother Donda in the article, he does speak on his impending marriage to designer Alexis Phifer.

“I’m just going to go and get married — I’m not going to make a big deal out of it. It’s not to prove anything to anyone — it’s for me, for stability in my life, and I’m so happy that I found someone that I really love, that challenges me, that keeps my life interesting, that’s just as crazy as I am.”

The issue hits newsstands on November 27. Click here to read USA Today’s full report.

    I think he looks divine and I am so proud of him he has not only had a phenomenal year, but a phenomenal 3 years…while this went to press and was decided before Donda West’s untimely passing Kanye deserves a time to shine and be the light that his mother raised him to be …this cover certainly reflects his LIGHT, check out his eyes (clearly a top notch photographer was on board!!!!)

    Kanye is like the man version of me, white folks love us because we cater to them and neither one of us likes Hip Hop and we both have pussies…I think I can replace Steadman now…Hooray for me. Go buy Rachel Ray’s new cookbook.
