Selena Gomez Dethrones Jay Z On Billboard 200 Chart

Published July 10, 2014 by gossipzoo

It’s been a good month for Selena Gomez.

Following her 21st birthday, the songstress has set a career record by collecting her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Her latest record, Stars Dance, has sold over 97,000 copies in the first week, knocking out Jay Z‘s Magna Carta Holy Grail from the top spot.

Previously, Gomez’s single, “Come & Get It,” reached No. 1 on the Top 40 radio charts – and the former Disney starlet got pretty teary-eyed about it.

In an emotional video she uploaded onto YouTube, SelGo is seen breaking down when she learns the big news.

“I’ve done four records and this is the first number one that I’ve ever had, so I can not thank you guys enough. I wanna thank every radio station, my label, and the most important of all is my fans for loving the song, for requesting it. It means so much to me,” she says.

Maybe she’ll celebrate with less tears and more shots of Jack and hot wings this time.

4. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher – $35 Million

As former co-stars on That 70s Show, the duo are already getting hefty syndication paychecks. Add Kutcher, who’s TV highest-paid actor, and his Two and a Half Men salary with Kunis’ box office success and you’ve got a perfect formula for a power couple.

3. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – $50 Million

Despite taking a hiatus for her double mastectomy this year, Jolie has managed to pocked quite the large sum upfront for her forthcoming Disney movie, Maleficent. As for her fiance, Pitt is still drawing large crowd at the theater with his latest flick, World War Z, earning $537 million worldwide.

2. Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady – $80 Million

As the world’s highest-paid model, you bet your butt Bunchen’s annual income is rivaling her footballer hubby’s paycheck. The Brazilian beauty has raked in an estimated $42 million in deals and endorsements this year, while Brady recent extension with the New England Patriots earned him a $30 million signing bonus.

1. Beyonce and Jay-Z – $95 Million

Aside from album sales, Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne tour alone has earned the rapper $1.4 million per show while Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter world tour grossed roughly $2 million a night. Outside of music, the couple are also A-list entrepreneurs with Jay now starting his own sports agency, Roc Nation Sports. It’s bad he had to dump his share of Blue Ivy’s childhood home Barclays Center though.

Jay-Z’s Weird Week Gets Weirder

Published August 1, 2013 by gossipzoo

What’s going on with Jay-Z, because I’m pretty sure we broke him. Somehow, someway he is broken. Are you proud of yourselves now?

It started on Monday, when Hova began randomly responding to people on his Twitter account. We all learned that he likes Cap’n Crunch, linguine with clam and admires Miley Cyrus‘ twerking skills and it was a little dorky but we all just figured, hey, he’s a dad now, no one can be cool forever.

Then Wednesday morning there were some photos of Jay-Z reportedly shooting a music video at Pace Gallery in New York City. Sounds normal, he’s got a new album out and we can’t all be Kanye West, just using Sims characters to make music videos. But it turns out it was so much more bizarre than we’d ever dreamed. I turns out, Jay is lip-synching his song “Picasso Baby” for six hours straight and filming it. He will use that footage to put together a music video. Not only that, but onlookers are allowed to observe for an hour at a time. Jay-Z has no problem interacting with them. Old…

Or young…

But don’t worry it gets so much weirder.

It turns out, Jay-Z invited some other famous people to take part in his bizarro art/music video project.

Marina Abramovi is a very famous performance artist known for pieces like “The Artist is Present” where she sat at the MoMA and stared at guests for a total of 736 hours.

Aaand there’s one more.

I wish I could tell you why my mom is with Jay-Z right now.

Yep, Lena Dunham‘s mom, photographer Laurie Simmons, was invited too. As were Jemima Kirke (Jessa on Girls), Judd Apatow (executive producer of Girls) and Adam Driver (Adam on Girls). And none for Lena Dunham.

Oh man, what a weird music video.

What a weird week.

JAY-Z Explains Who He Is To An Old Woman On The Subway (VIDEO)

Published December 7, 2012 by gossipzoo

JAY-Z explains who he is to an old woman on the subway in this adorable new video clip from a documentary about his Brooklyn concerts.

You’d think that being half of Forbes’ “Highest Paid Celebrity Couple” for 2012, being the husband of one of the most popular singers of this generation, and not to mention being a famous rapper and music mogul, would make Jay-Z one of the most easily-recognized celebrity faces out there…

But that simply wasn’t the case when the rapper took the subway to one of his shows in Brooklyn.

Surrounded by his security personnel, Jay-Z entered the train and sat next to an older lady, who seemed bemused by the cameras and bodyguards hovering around the rapper.

She then turned to him and asked:

“Are you famous?”

Jay-Z replied:

“Yes. Not very famous. You don’t know me. But I’ll get there some day.”

The rapper then introduced himself to her, and a totally adorable conversation soon ensued.
