Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Jay Z Buys Ace of Spades Champagne Brand

Pour it up, pour it up! It has been announced that Jay Z has purchased the Armand de Brignac (aka”Ace of Spades“) champagne brand!

According to Billboard, the rapper and entrepreneur acquired the brand from New York-based Sovereign Brands, which announced the sale in a statement this week. “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.

A bottle of Ace of Spades can go for $300 at its lowest but can go as high as $200,000, for actual 30-liter bottles made of gold!

Though the terms of the deal and Jay’s company name weren’t disclosed, a spokesperson for Sovereign told the New York Times in an emailed statement that the Brooklyn native “made us an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.”

I respect Jay’s hustle so much.  I can’t say I’ll be popping any Ace of Spades bottles anytime soon, but I’m sure a bunch of his celebrity friends will! Congrats to him on this new venture!

Zendaya is the New Face of Madonna’s ‘Material Girl’

Zendaya Coleman is definitely on top of the world right now. After winning her role as Aaliyah in an upcoming Lifetime biopic (despite the controversy around it), the Disney star has another big gig as the new face of Madonna‘s “Material Girl” teenage fashion brand!

The singer is the next face of the brand, taking the spot of Rita Ora, and joining the ranks of former material girls Taylor Momsen and Georgia May Jagger. Zendaya recently shot ads for the  brand’s fall campaign, playfully smiling and posing on the Coney Island boardwalk in Brooklyn.

“Zendaya exudes a confident, free spirit. We love having her as the new face of Material Girl,” Madonna said in a press release. Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon, also a collaborator behind the brand, is also a huge supporter of the teenage singer. “I love how Zendaya makes her own style rules to fit her personality — that’s who Material Girl is all about, being yourself to the fullest,” she added.

Zendaya, of course, was thrilled that she was picked by the “dynamic mother/daughter duo,” and gave a shoutout to the brand and the Material Girl herself saying in a press release of her own, “Material Girl embraces having fun with fashion and being confident in your own skin… and who does that better than Madonna?”

Well good for her! Zendaya is a very pretty girl and is definitely perfect to be the face of the brand. She’s in the demographic, she’s cute, and she’s fun! Plus, she has a huge following, so it’s definitely smart of the brand to add her on. Now Disney fans may just want to buy more of these clothes!
