Jay Z is a billionaire… James leaves Jeopardy… Robert Pattinson’s trilogy… Tristan Thompson has a blurred face… and Jonas Brothers at Chasing Happiness premiere
Forbes says that because of his investments, Jay-Z has become the first hiphop billionaire. They added up his income, his investments, and even subtracted “a healthy amount to account for a superstar lifestyle,” to come to the conclusion that Jay-Z is worth a billion, which they say is a conservative guess. Yes, it is a guess. It’s not like Jay-Z is handing over his portfolio. But Forbes says they consulted outside experts to make sure their estimates were “fair and accurate.” Breaking it down, Jay-Z’s biggest investment is in the company that produces Ace of Spades champagne. He has a $300 million investment in that. He’s also got $100 million investments in Tidal and D’Ussé cognac…Jay-Z’s music catalog and Roc Nation are each valued at $75 million. Add to that a $70 million art collection and about $50 million in real estate, and you’ve got yourself a billionaire! In fact, Warren Buffet told Forbes, “For a young person growing up, he’s the guy to learn from.”
If the internet didn’t spoil it for you yesterday and you didn’t see the episode yesterday, I’m going to spoil it for you now. It took a librarian to bring him down, but James Holzhauer’s reign on “Jeopardy!” has come to an end. And even though he won a massive $2,462,216 in 32 games, James fell $60K short of Ken Jennings’ total winnings. But in final jeopardy, Emma Boettcher wagered just the right amount and then got the question right so that even if James got the question right, he couldn’t have beat her. So do super fans love the librarian for beating him or do they sorta kinda hate her? There are a lot of mixed emotions regarding that, but one thing is for sure…. “Jeopardy!” are furious with the Washington Post and New York Times for revealing that James lost before the show even aired! And unless you didn’t open your laptop at all yesterday, THERE WAS NO WAY TO AVOID IT!! People were tweeting that they never realized they could be so angry and that how the one fun thing they’d been looking forward to every night for weeks was ruined.
The era of James Holzhauer has come to an end. Join us as we look back on his best moments.
Stream his final episode here, available now through Friday: https://t.co/hUk4MCtdjY pic.twitter.com/b52KlH45Fq— Jeopardy! (@Jeopardy) June 4, 2019
Robert Pattinson didn’t just sign up for “The Batman.” Deadline says he signed up for a TRILOGY! And director Matt Reeves responded to that report by posting a gif of Robert with three bat emojis, so it sounds like Deadline got it right. The Wrap is reporting that filming won’t begin until the first quarter of next year, so the studio has the rest of the year to cast the remaining roles. Unless something changes, “The Batman” is scheduled to hit theaters June 25, 2021.
If you watched Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” you may have noticed Tristan Thompson’s face was blurred out. One person who didn’t notice was Khloe, who responded to one fan’s tweet, “Why’s Tristan’s face blurred out in all the pics??!” with “Wait? It is!?!?? I did not even notice that. I don’t know (shoulder shrug emoji) #KUWTK well, you obviously know who it is LOL so I don’t know what the point of that is. I’ll find out.” But Radar Online says Khloe is just playing dumb and that her mom Kris was behind the decision. A source told them that Tristan didn’t sign a waiver to be on the show and they don’t want to risk him trying to sue them for using his image without his consent.
The new Jonas Brothers documentary “Chasing Happiness” is now available on Amazon Prime Video. We get to see home videos from way back before the boys got famous. We find out how the Jonas Brothers was born…how their pastor father was driven out of the church because of his sons’ music…how they lost everything, including their home and their record deal, but just when things started to pick up, Nick was diagnosed with diabetes….It goes on from there, from superstardom to breaking up to reuniting. But before the guys got back together, the three of them decided to lay it all out on the table with a drinking game. They wrote a bunch of questions down that they always wanted to ask each other and after each brother answered a question, the other two rated from 1-10 how honest the answer was. Depending on the rating, that’s how many seconds the brother had to drink. And the cameras were rolling. Find out how the breakup went down…how Nick and Joe caused Kevin to suffer the hardest moment of his entire life…how they REALLY felt about those purity rings…and how the women they love are largely responsible for the Jonas Brothers getting back together.
