Jay-Z's new book Decoded is now on the the New York Times bestseller's list. Hope he gives a lil toast to Oprah for this one. Find out what spot the book holds when you read on....
Jay-Z is known for topping Billboard charts but now the rapper's literary work is on the New York Times bestseller's list. His first book Decoded currently holds the third spot on the list. The top two spots are held by former president George Bush and his autobiography and Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken.
Decoded gives fans insight into Jay-z's lyrics and his life. The book was included on Oprah's 'Favorite Things' show last week and is in the top ten sellers on Amazon.com. The New York Times says, "Decoded gives the reader a harrowing portrait of the rough worlds Jay-Z navigated in his youth, while at the same time deconstructing his lyrics."
Beyonce Gives Jay-Z $2M Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport As Birthday Gift
December 9th, 2010
The birthday of the American rapper, Jay-Z, was honored with style by his wife, Beyonce Knowles, who made him a special $2 million gift: a Bugatti Veryon Grand Sport, the convertible version of the reputed supercar.
The month in which we all make presents to each-other is seen with other eyes from the heights of the top-stars of the American show-biz. Beyonce Knowels, the famous pop artist, made a special gift to her husband, Jay-Z, a rapper as famous as his wife, a Bugatti Veyron Grand sport, with the occasion of Jay-Z’s birthday. The price of the convertible version of Veyron, a supercar that Beyonce had to order since 2009, is of $2 million. The $2 million dollar gift is able to hit a top speed of 255 mph and sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds.
Even though a gift like this is and will be just a dream for most of the earthlings, the expensive cars are very common stars in the garage of the American singer, who owns, among others, a Maybach 62S, a Ferrari F430 Spyder and a Pagani Zonda Roadster. “Jay-Z has one of the most enviable collections of bling motors in the world — but even for him the Bugatti is special. Obviously the money isn’t a factor for Beyonce, but Jay will be touched that out of everything she could have bought him, she chose something he’ll treasure for years. He’s in for the ride of his life,” a source said.
The Beyonce and Jay-Z coupe was recently declared as the wealthiest in the world’s show-biz, out-taking bing names of the industry like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or David and Victoria Beckham.
