Jay Z likes his champagne, buys the company
Last week kicked off with the news that music and media mogul JAY Z has purchased Armand de Brignac – one of the worlds flashiest champagne company.
Armand de Brignac also commonly known as ‘Ace of Spade’, has had a good long relationship with the Jay Z whose real name is Shawn Carter. Since 2006, the rapper has publicly declared his love for the Ace of Spades as he has continuously used it for his music videos and other occasion.
According to reports, the rapper invested US$200 million (NZ$256 million) in the champagne manufacturing company. The company sells its shiny gold bottles for about $300 each.
This is the second alcohol company in his financial portfolio – JAY Z is also the owner D’Ussé, a brand of cognac.
“We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac (Ace of Spades) Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally renowned Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter,” the company said in a statement.
“We have had a wonderful relationship with Jay Z throughout the years since he first discovered Armand de Brignac. He became interested in owning the brand and made us an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.”
The name of the new company Jay bought Armand de Brignac with has not been named. #SmartMove 🙂
Kim Kardashian ‘Break The Internet’ with Paper Magazine cover
I will not talk much about this, really, because there is not much to talk about. I’m sure already seen the pictures before but if not, we have go the ‘No Filtered’ copies of all the images below…
Paper Magazine recruited Kim Kardashian to ‘break the internet’ and what did she do?… she broke the internet with her nude cover which has since received parodies from all over.
Cristiano Ronaldo jaw dropping earnings compared to the average wage in Spain.
According to yahoo news earlier last week, German website Torlaune worked out the average gross wage in Spain (€2019 per month by the end of 2012) and found that Ronaldo could afford to pay the salaries of 2662 Spanish citizens.
This is the same youngster that was earning €1,500-a-month at Sporting Lisbon. But this comes as no surprise to most people as the current world best player has continued to break new records. Recently he became the highest goal scorer ever in Europe qualifier and finals.
