We’ve all been there: watching our favorite actor on-screen and fantasizing what it would be like to date him. Celebrities are no different. Remember when Jada Pinkett-Smith famously said she didn’t mind Will Smith’s celebrity crushes on Salma Hayek and Beyonce? Well, speaking of Beyonce, who knew that her husband, Jay-Z, has a fantasy celebrity crush?
When Nia Long sat down with Essence magazine for this month’s cover story, she talked about bumping into Beyonce’s hubby at an industry event:
“I saw him at a party and I complimented him on his long run in music.”
“But he turned it around and asked me: ‘How does it feel to be every boy from the hood’s fantasy girlfriend for 20 years?’. It made me laugh, I hadn’t really thought about it.”
It’s not surprising that Jay would’ve been crushing on Nia Long. She was in everything back in the day. She played in Boyz In the Hood, Friday, Love Jones, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Best Man and many other movies and television shows in the nineties, so she had to know she was the ultimate fantasy girlfriend. It’s gotta be flattering though to hear it from Beyonce’s husband. Beyonce is likely not threatened though, she knows she’s probably “every boy from the hood’s fantasy wife” right about now.
Of course the rapper was only joking and Ime Udoka (Nia Long’s boyfriend/babydaddy) doesn’t have anything to worry about. Jay-Z’s comment does give some insight to his charm though and possibly how he snagged Beyonce in the first place. Maybe the “99 problems” rapper with a penchant for calling women bytches and hoes is actually smoother than we thought!
What do you think? Was Nia Long your (or your dude’s) fantasy girlfriend back in the day? Who’s your celebrity crush?

Ohhh celebrity crushes – we all have one. Lamman Rucker pretty much ranks as number one on my list. But have you ever wondered what celebrities other celebrities crush on? I mean, they’re just people who like to look too, right? Check it out!
“I don’t see it.” That’s exactly what I say each time the following names are brought up in a conversation about hot men in Hollywood. While many women, even followers of this site, swear up and down that these brothas are delicious and could “get it,” I’m always reading their comical comments, scratching my head and thinking, “Wow…really?” I’m a fan of most of these individuals, but you won’t see me throwing my panties at the computer screen for ‘em. But hey, whatever floats your boat, right?
Ever since Beyoncé upgraded this brotha, people have been saying for years that he’s got it going on. Got what going on and in what way you ask? I can’t say 100 percent, but you can probably blame it on June Ambrose who made him re-evaluate his fashion choices, and the business sense he cultivated on his own, which helped him reach an audience outside regular hip-hop fans, invest in NBA teams, push a fashion label, be the head at Def Jam for a while and more. That in turn helped him rake in more and more money, and a lot of women find a man good with money to be attractive. For the most part, he seems to be a pleasant and sweet character, especially when he’s with his lady and baby girl. But all that talk of “Jay is looking good as hell right now!” just because he put a fitted cap on evades me…
