Jay-Z Doesn’t Want Your Candy, But He Likes His Nike Dunks and Audemars Piguet Watch

Willy Wonka candy with Golden Tickets

When you live in New York City, you occasionally see kids in the subway trying to sell you candy. Sometimes they’re raising money for their soccer team or their school marching band’s trip – and sometimes they just buy candy in bulk a la Costco, etc., to raise some cash for themselves. There’s no harm in that.

Looks like one of these candy kids tried to sell to Jay-Z – on the street, no less – outside Bar Pitti in Manhattan’s West Village.

We wonder if this is how it played out when he tried to holla for a dolla’ at Shawn Carter

Kid: Excuse me, sir, I’m trying to raise money for my basketball team. Would you be interested in buying some candy? I have M&Ms, peanut M&Ms …

Jay-Z: Nah, sorry. I don’t eat chocolate …

Kid: I have Skittles? … Oh. I’m outta Skittles.

Jay-Z: Unless you’ve got a Willy Wonka Bar with a golden ticket it in, I don’t want it. Hold on, you got any of those Harry Potter chocolate frogs? The ones that come to life?

Kid: No, Mr. Jay-Z, sir.

… Better luck next time, kid.

Mr. Jay-Z was looking pretty slick in his destroyed Prps jeans, Nike Dunk Hi Premium sneakers (in a red oxide), and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watch with gold case (estimated $37,000). Looks like he could’ve sprung for some candy, but, maybe he was just in a rush.

Sex & The City 2 – Extended Preview & Samantha or Rihanna?

Sick of lines like “Get Carried Away”? Think again!

The Sex & The City crew is back (and ballin’! in the Middle East). Check out this EXTENDED preview. It doesn’t feel as product placement heavy as the first movie… Spoiler alert(!!!): check out the Dior J’adore eight-ball t-shirt Carrie is wearing at 1:44.

On a more fierce note*, check out the Mad Max get up on these two: Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones in SATC 2, and Rihanna at her Rated-R album release party in November.

Erykah Badu’s Melting, Dripping Sunglasses

A fully dressed Erykah Badu wore a pair of sunglasses that looked like they were melting off of her face to BET’s 106 & Park. The shades are Ann-Sofie Back‘s Dripping sunglasses. The aviators give the illusion that they are melting.

The “Call Tyrone” singer was on the show to promote her 5th studio album, “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)”. She recently stirred up MAD controversy for her newest video, “Window Seat“, in which she strips down naked in public and, “at the edited-in sound of a rifle shot, she falls to the ground … within feet of where President John F. Kennedy was shot.”

Watch the video for Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat” here:
