Between penning stories of his life and working on a collaborative record with Kanye West, Jay-Z is aiming to open his infamous sports bar, the 40/40 Club, in a few new locations: airports.
The artist, who will turn 41 on December 4, announced earlier this week that he’s launched a partnership with Delaware North Companies to bring his sports-themed concept to select airports across the country.
The original 40/40 Club is a multi-level sports bar that first opened in 2003 on 25th street in Manhattan. It features five VIP rooms, more than 30 LCD TVs and four 12 by 12 dual-sided projector screens on top of plenty of sports memorabilia. (If you've yet to visit and are interested in going, don't plan a trip between April and July of next year; the venue is expected to shut down and undergo a complete renovation.)
There's at least one person who doesn't get the warm-and-fuzzies when he hears "Do They Know It's Christmas?" and that would be Bob Geldof, the man who penned the 1984 holiday hit. Geldof recently let it slip that he's completely tired of the tune.
"I am responsible for two of the worst songs in history," he told Australia's Daily Telegraph. "[One is] 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' The other one is 'We Are The World.'"
Both singles united the era's biggest hit makers to benefit famine relief in Africa, specifically Ethiopia. The "Do They Know It's Christmas?" ensemble consisted of Brit bigs like Boy George, David Bowie, George Michael and Paul McCartney, while 1985's "We Are the World" was made up of American icons including Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Diana Ross.
