Rapper JAY-Z wins Cologne lawsuit to avoid $67M in damages

A Manhattan jury has cleared Jay-Z in a lawsuit that claimed he breached an endorsement deal for a “Gold Jay-Z” cologne brand by failing to properly promote it, allowing the superstar to avoid $67 million in requested damages. At the end of a three-week trial over the soured product deal with Parlux Fragrances LLC, the jury heard arguments from Jay-Z's attorney that asked “why on earth” the star would have put his name on a product that he wanted to fail. Wednesday's verdict awarded nothing to Parlux but also declined to award any money to Jay-Z, who had sought roughly $6 million in royalties he said he was still owed under the deal.

But plenty of celebrities have disclosed their love of sex, and have even spilled the tea on the sex toys they use and love. Destigmatizing masturbation and sexual health in general is incredibly important, especially during a time when most young adults are learning about sex through porn, which can be very misleading (no, she likely won’t be screaming and quivering in ecstasy 30 seconds into sex, especially if you open by jackhammering her vagina with your finger).

Twitter Users Blast Jay-z and Beyonce after they were Pictured Sitting Down During National Anthem at Super Bowl

Power couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce have been blasted on Twitter as 'disrespectful' after they refused to stand up for the national anthem during Sunday night's Super Bowl. The Carters along with their daughter, Blue Ivy, were photographed sitting during Demi Lovato's anthem performance ahead of Sunday's big game at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, and Twitter users were not having it.                  Demi Lovato's anthem rendition was so good that everyone was amazed by it, but it looks like the Carters either didn't care enough to support Lovato or were trying to make a political statement. The move by the Carters whether intentional or not, comes just after Jay-Z partnered with the NFL to shed light on police brutality and injustice, and some Twitter users felt...

Jay-z Snatches Man’s Phone For Filming Beyonce Dancing At Diddy’s Birthday Party

Multiple-award winning US rapper, Jay Z, over the weekend got protective of his wife, Beyonce at Sean ‘Diddy’ Comb’s belated 50th birthday party.
