Jay-Z covers the latest issue of GQ Magazine’s annual “Men Of The Year” issue.  Joined by Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Fassbender and Mila Kunis also appear on separate covers of GQ’s biggest issue of the year.

The Brooklyn-born rapper graces the magazine’s December cover for its annual “Men of the Year” issue, on newsstands Nov. 22.

In the issue, the 41-year-old reveals that it was wife Beyoncé’s decision to announce she was pregnant at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

“It was actually Bey who wanted to (announce) it,” he says. “You want to be in control of your life.”

Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, also opens up about a time growing up in which he couldn’t be in total control — when his father walked out on the family.

“If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts — but it’s not like you had a connection with something that was real,” Jay says. “Not to say it’s any better — but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero.”

A superhero turned villain that Jay-Z eventually confronted.

“[I talked about] what it did to me, what it meant, asked him why. There was no real answer,” he says. “There was nothing he could say, because there’s no excuse for that. There really isn’t. So there was nothing he could say to satisfy me, except to hear me out. And it was up to me to forgive and let it go.”
