What’s The Significance of Jay-Z’s New Haircut?

Just because they’re married doesn’t mean that Jay-Z and Beyoncé use the same methods of promoting their music!

As a guest mentor on last night’s American Idol, Beyoncé debuted her new video for “Run The World (Girls)” live from Los Angeles (more on that to follow).Shortly after the show, her album cover conveniently leaked via New York’s Hot 97 News correspondent and blogger extraordinaire, Miss Info. But on the other side of the country, hubby Jay-Z discretely revealed some album information of his own…

While performing a killer set at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom for a room full of Adult Swim executives (!), there was something noticeably different in Hov’s appearance: His hair. Why does that matter? Well, in hip-hop circles, it’s commonly known that Jay refuses to visit the barber while he’s working on a project, instead choosing to let his hair grow free until an album is complete. And since we know that Kanye-collaboration project Watch The Throne has been in the works for some time now, many (including us!) are speculating that those studio sessions have come to a close. Is that really the case, or was Jay just sick of his pick? Only time will tell.
