All hail Jay-Z

All hail Jay-Z

You’ve got a $150 million contract and Beyonce Knowles as a wife – what more could you want? Well a whole lot more according to Jay-Z.  He is said to be in talks with WMG/Atlantic to set up his own record label, tentatively called the Carter Music Group, with former managers Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles. A source said: “Jay’s deal with Live Nation is massive. But if he were to cut a deal with WMG/Atlantic, he’d make even more headlines. Jay-Z, Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles are all brand names. They’re the industry’s heavy hitters, and the combination would bring them a lot of attention. They would be unstoppable. Jay himself is the most successful rapper-turned-businessman out there.”  Jay – who was president of label Def Jam from 2004 to 2007 – is keen to team up with Lyor and Kevin again, claiming they are a “dream team”.  What’s he after total world domination?

Kelly Brook perhaps it would be wise to focus on what you’re good at, like modelling. We hear she is set to star in a “wild” 3D remake of horror movie ‘Piranha’. We’re sensing this one might be a straight to DVD kind of movie, if you catch our drift. Kelly has flown to the US to team up with former adult movie star Riley Steele, Jerry O’Connell, Elizabeth Shue and Richard Dreyfuss for a sexy remake of the 1978 cult killer fish film. Riley said: “Me and Kelly go out in a boat and basically try to get innocent Jessica Szohr from ‘Gossip Girl’ to become a wild girl. So, I’m basically playing myself! Then all these piranhas attack and everyone starts dying. A huge piranha eats through my head and comes out of my mouth. The death scene is in 3D, eating through our faces, everything. I can’t wait.” The movie, entitled ‘Piranha 3D’, will be set around the July 4 weekend celebrations in Lake Victoria, Arizona. The film has been billed as a “riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem”. Hmm, not too sure if we will be queuing to see this one.
