J. Cole serves as the cover star of GQ‘s April issue. The rare interview, conducted by Allison P. Davis, took place back in February during NBA All-Star Weekend leading up to the 34-year-old’s headlining performance in his home state at the sporting event’s halftime show. The feature focuses on Cole World’s unconventional rise to rap superstardom, while shying away from the spotlight and keeping most of his personal life out of the public eye.

The Dreamville star opens up on avoiding center-of-attention-type moments, getting out of his reclusive comfort zone when it comes to family moments like vacations, being more collaborative and making connections with fellow musicians, the popular ‘J. Cole went platinum with no features’ slogan, the GRAMMYs, his experience first signing with JAY-Z’s Roc Nation and the struggles of getting his Sideline Story debut album out, fatherhood and being prepared once his son was born, the song “1985” and the criticism it received, meeting with Lil’ Pump, and the ten-day Revenge of the Dreamers 3 sessions orchestrated by himself and Dreamville in Atlanta.

Presented by American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, the 2018 edition is co-hosted by Rihanna, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney (wife of George Clooney) and iconic designer Donatella Versace. The theme for this year’s extravaganza is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” dictating sartorial-themed fashion choices for the invite-only soirée.

On the museum’s website, Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton posted that despite this year’s theme potentially attracting controversy that “dress is fundamental to any discussion about religion.” He would later state, “although some might regard fashion as a frivolous pursuit far removed from the sanctity of religion, most of the vestments worn by the secular clergy and religious orders of the Catholic Church actually have their origins in secular dress.”

Many A-listers in entertainment and fashion will appear the Met Gala, arriving in over-the-top looks. Rihanna, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Solange Knowles, Diddy, A$AP Ferg, Donald Glover, Mary J. Blige, SZA, Migos, Rita Ora, Lana Del Rey, Jaden Smith and more donned some eye-catching and stylish outfits, showing off their grand and flamboyant style while posing for thousands of photographers.
