If you are a fan of Jay-Z, then you might be a bit put off by these pictures, but we must say that they are pretty darn funny. Here is our list of 15 Photos Jay-Z Probably Wants Deleted From the Internet. When you are a big time rapper and you are married to the one and only Beyonce, then you can bet that there are going to be many photo ops in your life. That means that you need to be at the ready at all times, and we all know that this is physically impossible. Hence we have these photos of Jay-Z, some of which are very embarrassing – for him, anyway. We have photos of his weird facial expressions, his caught in positions that look downright awkward, and others in which the juxtaposition of him and his wife just looks really strange.
So we invite you now to just sit back and relax and take a look at some of these weird photos of Jay-Z. You are going to laugh at some of these, but don’t worry, because lots of people have done it before you. Jay-Z will never know. All he really wants to do is just have these pictures taken off the Internet, but we all know that this will never happen. In the meantime, he can just try to maintain his standing as a rough and edgy rap star. Although…how much of a rap star is he these days? What is he even up to?
15. This Photo of His Bae
Oh Beyonce, what happened in this photo? Your husband Jay-Z would certainly not want this going around. Unfortunately, this picture has already made its way around the Internet and millions of users have seen it. Oh well, live and learn, right? Jay-Z doesn’t have to be totally embarrassed about this one because it’s a picture of his wife, not himself. Still, when a terrifying picture of your wife goes viral on the Internet, you can start to feel a little insecure. Jay-Z already has to contend with Beyonce’s Lemonade album, which hinted that he had been unfaithful to her in the past. The rapper really doesn’t need any more bad press heading his way. We’re sure if he had the choice, he would have this image banned from any Internet searches and archives. Until that’s possible, he should just love on Beyonce, because together they are one of the hottest power couples in the world.
14. His Duck Face
Yes, even a guy like Jay-Z makes duck faces in photos. While this image shows a pretty cute family snapshot, the weird guy in the background (oh, that’s Jay-Z,) is throwing everything off. Also, everyone’s face is cut off in this picture, which makes it look sort of like a drunk text that was taken…only Jay-Z is with his kid and it’s in broad daylight. So what was really going on here? Who knows, but we do know that Jay-Z is the one ruining this photo. Just look at Beyonce. She looks flawless as usual, even though we only see half of her face. She has damp locks and bright red lipstick that makes her stand out from the picture. Next to her is Blue Ivy, the daughter of Bey and Jay-Z. She is sporting a cute baby face and is looking away from the camera (in typical kid fashion.) Then Jay-Z is back there behind them, looking like a loony toon. He is doing the duck face that is so popular with teenage girls, too. What in the world is this?
13. Jay-Z the Daredevil
Now here we go! Here is a photo that captures the tough and edgy lifestyle that Jay-Z lives! Okay…not really. Actually, this photo is downright embarrassing and makes Jay-Z look like a teenager trying to figure out a two-wheeler for the first time. It may just be a bad angle or something, but the result is quite humiliating. In the image, the rapper is riding around on a mountain bike in some kind of public park. We say that because we see crowds of people in the background. However, the foreground is filled solely with Jay-Z, in all of his bike-riding glory. Anyway, the celeb looks a bit distraught, as if he got on the bike and then realized that it’d been years since he went riding. He looks uncomfortable and unsure of himself. Plus, his shorts are riding up, and the look is sort of dorky. Delete! Delete!
12. Choosing Sides
It’s a dilemma that every married man needs to face at some point…wife or cell phone? In this photo, we see a very well put-together Beyonce glancing over at her husband, who is preoccupied with his phone. Not only that, but his attire does not match Bey’s at all. The rapper is merely dressed in all black sweatpants, T-shirt, and hoodie. Meanwhile, Beyonce is over there looking like a queen. She is also all dressed in black, but she has a stylish hat and form-fitting trousers and made-up hair. It’s quite the juxtaposition, and that is not even the worst part. The couple seems to be at some kind of event, probably a basketball game, and Jay-Z is sitting there, staring into his phone screen. That is rude to the players on the court, as well as his wife, whom he is supposed to be enjoying the game with.
11. Mug Shot
Jay-Z (like most rappers,) likes to talk big. He uses his rhymes to show off how edgy and hardcore he is. Well, what about this mug shot of the rapper? We bet he wouldn’t want anyone to see this image! Too bad it is all over the Internet and is bound to be seen by millions of people; some fans, others not. Jay-Z has been involved with the police several times, for crimes including the stabbing of recording exec Lance Rivera (Jay-Z pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor), as well as charges for drug possession and distribution. This one mug shot here shows Jay-Z in a less flattering light. He doesn’t look so big and bad now! He also looks younger, and has huge saucer eyes, probably out of fear. Any mug shot, whether flattering or not, is going to be embarrassing. Now we can add Jay-Z to that list of abashed celebs.
10. The Swim Trunks Meme
You know you’ve made it big when you appear in a viral Internet meme. Or is that really a good thing? For Jay-Z, it was not so much an honor as it was an embarrassment. This meme is funny, but it was not humorous at all to the rapper. He was photographed while spending some time at the beach or pool, and he was caught with his tummy hanging a bit over his swim trunks. To be honest, it isn’t even that much of a belly overhang, but when you’re rich and famous, you are expected to look on point 24/7. So when Jay-Z was photographed with his little paunch hanging out, people just had to run with it. Not only was the photo leaked all over the Internet and on celeb gossip sites, but people began using the image and photoshopping it into other pictures and memes. Jay-Z and his belly have appeared in The Lion King, Thriller, a Dragon Ball Z match-up, the wrestling ring, and more.
9. Party Boy
Oh man, this is embarrassing. It’s even embarrassing to look at. Here is a photo of the rough and tough rapper, Jay-Z, at a party and getting his groove on. However, he looks more like a member of the high school chess team trying to fit in at a cool kids’ party. The rapper has his left fist raised to his shoulder, in a party-pumping gesture. Meanwhile, he is holding a shot of some drink in his right hand. His face looks as though he were photographed while shouting something or singing along to the music. He looks like a dork! At least his fashion sense is okay…he is wearing a navy blue blazer with a white T-shirt underneath and a thick rapper’s chain around his neck. We can also spot an expensive watch on his wrist, so he gets an A for effort, but F for execution. Sorry, bro.
8. Channeling Pepe the Frog
Sorry, but the first thing we thought of when we saw this Jay-Z photo was Pepe. If you don’t know Pepe the Frog, he is an Internet meme that has since become one of the greats of our time. He is just an ugly-looking frog, poorly drawn, and he manages to make his way into lots of “dank memes.” The thing is, if you look at a picture of Pepe the Frog, you will notice that this photo of Jay-Z is channeling Pepe almost to a T! Just look at the rapper’s wide, thick lips spread over the lower half of his face. Plus, his neck is folded in and has morphed into several double chins. It’s Pepe perfection, but not really. In this picture, Jay-Z was actually trying to show off his basketball twirling skills by balancing a ball on his fingertip and spinning it around. However, it was a bit of a flop, and you can see Bey seated next to him, hand over her mouth.
You know those Instagram photos of the rich girls posing in some hip area, dressed in their nice clothes and smiling at the camera? Then there is some sort of corny caption about how they are out shopping or hanging with their girls or something. You know? Okay, now just replace one of those girls’ heads with Jay-Z’s, and then you have this photo. Really. It shows an Insta pic of the rapper dressed to the nines in a long dark overcoat, a baggy gray beanie, some Timberland boots, and forest green trousers. He is posing with one hip cocked to the side and he is facing sideways at the camera with a smile that says “cheeeeese, take a pic of me!” Someone did, and now all of Instagram and beyond can see. This looks so uncharacteristic of Jay-Z that is it so funny, although it’s probably an embarrassment to the rapper himself!
6. Where Are Your Knees, Brah?
At first glance, this picture looks like a cute family photo. We see Beyonce from the back (heyy) as she gives her hubby Jay-Z a peck on the lips. Next to them, Blue Ivy is in her swimmies and is ready to hit the pool. It’s all really endearing until you realize that there is something seriously messed up about Jay-Z knees in this photo. What the heck is going on here? We know that Beyonce has been outed for photoshopping some of her pictures on Instagram and social media. However, we didn’t know that Jay-Z would fall victim to the same predicament! Look closely at Jay-Z’s lower half and you will notice that his knees just don’t look right. They are totally out of proportion from the rest of his body and they look like chicken legs sticking out from his shorts. Where are his knee caps? Why doesn’t he have knee caps in this picture?!
5. Belly Flop
This photo is a major fail all around. Sorry, Bey. In this picture, we see Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce jumping into a pool. However, they look as though they have never gone swimming before in their lives. Beyonce is jumping in feet first with a look on her face as her feet hit the water. Her expression seems to be saying “What is this? What is this thing called water?” Meanwhile, Jay-z is right there next to her, only he is doing a belly flop, and the camera captured that moment before he hit the water. His tummy paunch is hanging out and his arms are straight out in front of him as if he were planning on diving and then decided halfway through to just jump instead. This is the still image of Jay-Z in mid-jump that was turned into a meme throughout the world. He has no idea what he’s doing.
4. Croissant Lips
Not to be rude or anything, but we need to include this photo in our list, because it is so humiliating. It’s a bit unfair because it makes fun of something that Jay-Z can’t really help: his lips. Someone stealthily compared the rapper’s full lips to a croissant, and the result is pretty darn hilarious. First, there is a photo of Jay-Z’s face, in which we can see that his lips stand out from the rest of his facial features. Then there is a close-up of his lips, which are in dire need of some chapstick. Then there is a stock photo of a croissant right next to those close-up lips. Like we said, it’s not a very polite thing to do, but there is no denying that this will give you a laugh. Maybe it was just an unflattering photo of Jay-Z’s face. Maybe that day he was just dealing with dry and cracked lips. Who knows? We just suspect that the rapper would cringe upon seeing this pic.
3. King of the Castle
We all have those days when we just want to relax and chill out at home. Sometimes we don’t even need to get dressed; we just stay in our jammies or throw on a robe. Well, we can imagine that celebrities would like to have those kinds of days, too, and they are totally entitled to them. In this case, we see Jay-Z in the middle of a lazy day. He is dressed in a royal blue robe (how fitting!) and the camera snapped while he was in mid-yawn. He has his rapper’s jewelry on, including a diamond-studded ring, and he has a TV remote control in his hand. It’s the epitome of a lazy day at home, and somehow it made its way to the dark corners of the Internet. People were retweeting and reposting this all over Twitter and Instagram. Our only question is…dude, where is Beyonce?
2. Feeling Jelly
In this photo, we see Jay-Z enjoying a night out with his main squeeze, Beyonce. Or at least he’s trying to enjoy his time with her. It looks as though Bey has better things to do than just hangout with her old hubby. She is in this picture playing around with her phone while Jay-Z looks on with a dejected expression on his face. We’re sure he is feeling totally jelly in this photo. Just look at his face, it’s all sad and lonely. Meanwhile, Queen B is over there, texting and chatting like it’s no one’s business. Sorry, Jay-Z, but girls just wanna have fun, and well, you don’t seem to be very fun. We also need to point out that Beyonce is totally outshining her husband in this photo. She is all done up with flawless hair and makeup and a cute romper. Jay-Z is just donning a big black T-shirt and a snapback basketball cap. So unoriginal.
We all know that Beyonce could outshine Jay-Z in a heartbeat, anytime, anywhere. It’s nothing personal towards Jay-Z, it’s just that he married one of the iconic divas of modern day. It’s going to be really hard to upstage Beyonce – ever. So as fate would have it, we have this last photo that shows Bey totally outshining her husband. As Jay-Z stands behind her, he has a look on his face that just says it all. With one hand up to his face, the rapper looks equal parts scared and sad. Meanwhile, Queen B is standing before him with her back to him, and she has a million watt smile on her face. This is life for Jay-Z. At least he had decent fashion sense in this photo. He is dressed in a white tuxedo with a black bow tie and a clean shaven face. Kudos for that! Still not better than Bey, though.
