Beyonce bought Jay-Z a $4.8 millon watch

Beyonce bought her husband Jay-Z a $4.8 million watch for his 43rd birthday. And you know what? It tells the exact same time as this $10 Casio I stole from Walmart. From UK tabloid The Daily Star:

Beyonce has splashed out over [$4.8 million] on a birthday present for hubby Jay-Z. And he wasn’t even celebrating a milestone age, just his 43rd. The ex-Destiny’s Child star, 31, bought her man a luxury Hublot watch named the Big Bang. The timepiece has a cool 1,282 diamonds on it.

A man in the know said: “Beyonce will always buy Jay the best gifts money can buy. Money is no object to her. She knew he would love the Hublot Big Bang watch. It’s the ultimate timepiece, a mixture of extravagance, luxury and bling. Jay-Z is a huge watch collector and was very excited when he was given the gift. He can’t wait to start flashing it around. It is absolutely stunning. In Beyonce’s defence, what do you buy the man who already has everything?”

Kids, next time you’re selling blood or giving your boss a handjob for some extra hours so you can buy Beyonce’s new album, be aware that your money is going to a good cause: Jay-Z’s wrist for a ten-minute photo op before being used as some stripper’s tip. All kidding aside, she bought him a $5 million watch for his birthday — now what the hell does she buy him for Christmas? The possibilities are endless when you’re that rich. An antique platinum back-scratcher? Sure! Yellowcake uranium cuff links? Why not! A night with the Queen of England? Hey, she may be 86, but she’s got the stamina of a 62-year-old.
