Look out, Beyonce! Another Hollywood A-lister is a big fan of your man — or at least the way he smells. On a recent call with her best friend Gayle King on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Oprah Radio, Oprah Winfrey dished about her favorite mogul. “Jay-Z is my new best friend!” the talk show host said to Gayle while discussing her recent two-hour interview with him for her magazine, O. Admitting that she’s not a huge fan of his music, Oprah does reveal what about him does have her hooked. “He was so charming and delightful — and he smelled so good,” she says. “It’s the kind of thing where you hug a guy and the scent is sort of buried in them,” she explains. “When we went to the second location I could still smell him on me it was like, ‘oh my, this is wonderful!'” Jay has reason to take scent seriously. In addition to heading up music labels, a club, a sports team and the Rocawear clothing line, Jay-Z is also a perfumer, having already produced the scent Rocawear 9 IX. And next month Oprah — and all Jay-Z fans — will have even more reason to celebrate when he launches X Rocawear fragrance in celebration of the label’s 10th anniversary. Listen here to hear more of Gayle’s interview with Oprah. Then tell us: What Hollywood man do you imagine smells great?

Sometimes Oprah scares me.
This is one of those times.

I agree with Ana on

These kind of comments are sort of shocking to come from Oprah. A little too much info perhaps.

I am a fat, white 41 year old mother of 2. I do not like rap music, but my celebrity crush has always been HOVA. You can just tell…his momma raised him right.
