Beyoncé & Jay-Z host NY Bam ba$hJay-Z & Beyoncé ready tower of bubbly
New York Post ^ | 9/18/12 | Geoff Earle

Posted on 09/19/2012 6:59:52 AM PDT by KansasGirl

WASHINGTON — Nix the flags and the podium. Cue the opulent 18-foot tower of gold-bottled French champagne.

When President Obama addresses an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York tonight, he will do so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.

The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.

“It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”

But the White House, which meticulously controls Obama’s image, is not expected to release any photos of the president’s appearance at the lavish club.

Details of the party are “under lock and key,” according to the rep, and the White House was guarding the guest list as if it were the latest intelligence profile of Iran’s nuclear program.

What a jerk!

Our foreign policy is in shambles. Americans are dead. Al Qaeda flags fly over our embassies. Americans are suffering because Obama has destroyd our economy. The middle class is being desteoyed. The country is bankrupt and becoming more so everyday. Meanwhile, Obama parties and lives a lifestyle of the rich and famous. His only concern is smearing Romney and winning re-election. This man knows no shame! It is disgusting!

I wonder if Jay-Z has paid his fair share of taxes since he most definitely does NOT belong to the 99%, yet he is a Democrat? I thought all of the RICH people in this country were Republican.

Imagine what the media would say if Romney attended a fundraiser with a $quarter-million+ tower of $800 bottles of champagne...

He should do one the same day with an 18-foot tower of food stamps and EBT cards

There’s hypocrisy... and then there’s this.

I wonder if Romney’s people can get a picture of this onto an ad showing Obama running him down for being a rich man who doesn’t care about the poor folk.

The hip hop performer (Jay Zee) featured a bottle of Armand de Brignac in the video to his single Show Me What You Got, after falling out with the owners of Cristal, his previous bubbly of choice.

The garish gold bottle of Armand de Brignac chimed perfectly with the urban music industry’s “bling” culture of conspicuous consumption, propelling the previously unknown brand into competition with the big champagne houses including Dom Perignon and Krug.

Stars including David Beckham and George Clooney are among those won over to Armand de Brignac, which is referred to by drinkers as “Ace of Spades” after the image on its label.

Jacques Cattier, president of Cattier Champagne, Armand de Brignac’s producer with just 20 staff based in the village of Chigny Les Roses in Champagne-Ardennes, said he was astonished by the rise of the brand, which was only launched in 2006. The name – taken from the hero of a 1950s romantic novel – was suggested by his mother.

“We could not imagine the success we have had,” he told The Independent, saying that they could sell out their 60,000-bottle production run several times over.

Since it’s new years eve, a post on champagne is necessary. And the first one that comes to mind is Ace of Spades and their mascot, Jay-Z. With Ace of Spades new on the Champagne scene, introduced only in late 2006, is now a globally recognized bottle, pretty much all thanks to Jay-Z.

Hey Jay-Z, did OBAMA BUILD THAT or did you?

Well, the great pretender won't release any photos of himself at the excessively opulent party with excessively trashy nouveau riche tonight? What, no photos beside the tower of champagne? No bump 'n grind with the sistas?

We can make our own "fake but accurate" images to remind the 25 million who can't get a good job how hard our president is working to right the economy.

I know we have some master photoshoppers here....

The Post is famous for its headlines. You do have to learn how to read them, though (or be a New Yorker!).

The only reason they are voting for Obama is because he’s black. They are truly, utterly, racist.

The article states that the carefully guarded image will have all pictures of this opulence under lock and key, yet Romney gets bootlegged at his fund raiser and its in its 2nd day of wall to wall media coverage. The media will stop at nothing to protect their boy.

it’s the same need as driving big showy cars for some tropical Africans here

been that way forever...all my life

Caddys, Champagne, Bling ...you name it

my ex wife from Brasil first thing she said driving from Miami to Mickeyland in 1987 her first time here was “Why do black people here all drive such big cars?”

it show off impulses like big rims and loud colors and floppy pimps hats and platform heels...now it’s Crystal and Herve Legere

ingrained culture

blacks with WASPy discretion are looked down on by their peers

gauche is good basically

cause it’s all about style over substance in their culture..for most anyhow

they didn’t make up Welfare Cadillac in a shotgun house in Sugar Ditch Mississippi from whole cloth

there are more vernacular ways to describe this trait but I’ll leave that

irony is ..rather tropical African looking anti white bigot Jay Zee just had to marry a very white looking mixed race woman who barely signifies anything black other than her cafe skin tone and ample caboose

and he’s black and proud of course

all the rich black men that are proud do this it seems...have less than black looking women

*yes I know there are exceptions but I don’t see a Cicely Tyson anywhere on the arm of these poseurs today

It's a good thing that they're both part of the 99%...otherwise Osama Obama wouldn't get within 50 miles of them.
