Jhené Aiko Sizzles in Sexy GQ Shoot

Jhené Aiko

Jhené Aiko is heating up the pages of GQ. The multiracial beauty, who the magazine describes as the “fantasy girl who rappers are always complaining doesn’t exist,” wears a camo Jean Paul Gaultier jacket with nothing underneath and Dolce & Gabbana panties as she strolls on the beach in the May issue.

The 26-year-old singer opens up what kind of guy she wants. “If a man has a chef and maid, then I can’t practice my domestic powers,” she says. “Mostly, I just don’t want a guy who would waste money.”

And she has no problem being one of the guys. “I probably smoke weed twice a week and have no problem sleeping for 10 hours.”

Jhené’s dark and melodic debut Souled Out is due this summer. “There’s no fucking around with this album,” she says.
