Nick Cannon Sports $2 Million Shoes


According to reports, actor-mogul Nick Cannon has the Web in an uproar over a very expensive fashion choice. He sported $2 million, diamond-encrusted shoes designed by Tom Ford for the finale of “America’s Got Talent.”

The loafer has 14,000 diamonds and was created by California jeweler Jason Arasheben, founder and owner of Jason of Beverly Hills.

“Not very often do I get a request for the most expensive shoes in the world,” Arasheben toldWWD. “When Nick approached me last year, he said he wanted to make history and be so over-the-top. He wanted to set a new standard in diamonds. ‘How can we make the most expensive pair of shoes in the world and make this finale special?’ he asked me.”

Some critics thought the fashion statement to be too extravagant:

Does anyone else agree that it’s insane that @NickCannon‘s shoes are worth twice as much as the prize the finalists can win on @nbcagt

No Good Deed Tops Weekend Box Office with $25 Million

No Good Deed, starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, grossed an estimated $24.5 million domestically, I can only assume because people thought it was a sequel to Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds. Screen Gems chose not to screen the film for critics (supposedly in order to protect its shocking plot twist – yeah right) and who knows whether that helped its box office at all, but the people who made that decision will surely be pretending it did. (You can also insert your own conspiracy theories about the Ray Rice news hitting just as a movie about a guy stalking a woman was set to screen). It received a 12% recommended rating from the critics who did see it and a B+ Cinemascore. As for the “shocking twist,” one critic described it as “about as fiendishly clever as an episode of General Hospital.”

Either way, the film only cost $13 million to producing, another win in a big year for producer Will Packer, who has now made healthy profits on the Think Like A Man movies, Obsessed, and Ride Along. Proving that there’s still money to be made playing to black audiences underserved by mainstream movies.
