[MUSIC NEWS] Jay-Z and Beyonce Surprise Teen With $100,000 Scholarship During On the Run II Tour Stop in Arizona

Jay-Z and Beyonce are on a mission to gift 11 lucky students with a $100,000 scholarships and during their Arizona stop on the On the Run II Tour on Wednesday (Sept. 19), the couple surprised Mikayla Lowry with the gift.

Lowry was one of 19 Boys and Girls Club students who attended the show for free and was made aware of her award when DJ Khaled announced her as the winner. “They said my name, and I was like, ‘what?'” the teen said.

Money should be no issue for Jay, who recently topped Forbes’ annual list of the world’s highest-paid hip-hop acts. While Hov came in second last year to Diddy, the Brooklyn rapper took the top spot this year thanks to the $76.5 million he earned.

In related news, the man who rushed the stage during Jay and Beyonce’s stop in Atlanta was charged with simple battery. Although the couple said they wouldn’t be pressing charges, Atlanta police pursued their own. The man was originally issued a citation for disorderly conduct after he ran on stage and made contact with Hov.

Hov and Bey still have a few more scholarships to give out and will announce the winners during their stops in Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara, Calif., Seattle and more. The On the Run II Tour wraps up on Oct. 4 in Seattle.

[NEWS] Jay-Z and Beyonce Pay $88 Million for Los Angeles Mansion

Earlier this year, it was revealed JAY-Z and his superstar wife Beyoncé had officially earned the status of billion-dollar couple—and boy, have they been acting like it. According to the Los Angeles Times, the iconic husband and wife recently copped themselves an $88 million mansion out in L.A.

The publication reports Hov and Bey paid for their Bel-Air mansion through blind trusts, and now carry a mortgage of $52.8 million mortgage for their new home. They’ll pay $252,075 per month for roughly 30 years. It’s probably a worthwhile price to pay for a crib that’s better described as a modernized, imperial wonderland than as a “swanky mansion.”

Hov and Bey’s new crib, which was developed by Dave McKillen, is composed of six buildings and spans about 30,000 square-feet. It includes a basketball court, four outdoor swimming pools, a wellness center, a media room, a spa and quarters for staff members. It rests behind gates and on two lush green acres of land. Blue Ivy and her new twin siblings will have a blast playing manhunt.

The Los Angeles Times claim Jay and Bey’s purchase is Los Angeles County’s highest sale of 2017 so far, and it’s the sixth biggest sale of a single family home. Pretty insane stuff, but considering who we’re talking about, we shouldn’t be surprised
