Jay-Z Sells Miley Cyrus to Shanghai Businessman

Rapper Cites Misuse of Name

NEW YORK CITY - According to four sources, hip hop mogul Jay-Z earlier this month purchased music and television star Miley Cyrus and then sold her to Chinese businessman Zhou Rongkun.

One source said Jay-Z did not appreciate Cyrus using his name in the hit song “Party in the USA.”

The thoughtful, poignant lyrics describe Cyrus riding in a cab when “a Jay-Z song was on. And a Jay-Z song was on. And a Jay-Z song was on.”

Cyrus did not ask Jay-Z’s permission to use his name.

According to financial documents obtained by the Cannon Blog, Jay-Z purchased Miley Cyrus from her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, for $3.2 million and the rights to use a Rhiana song in Billy Ray Cyrus’ new movie, “The Spy Next Door.”



A day later, Jay-Z sold Cyrus to Rongkun for roughly $4.9 million.

The Cannon Blog attempted to contact Jay-Z, and shockingly he answered the phone:

“I don’t give a f*** what he does with her,” Jay-Z said. “I handled my business. It was like selling stock, except I was selling a no-talent brat to a Chinese guy. That’s what happens when you use my name in a stupid-ass dance song. That’s the moral, bi-atch. Now I’m back down to 99 problems.”
