Rapper Jay Z is somewhere steaming over the fact that failing media honcho Oprah made the cover of Forbes$126 Billion cover — and he didn’t.

Winfrey, 58, shares the Forbes “$126 Billion” cover with Jay Z’s good pal billionaire investor Warren Buffet, 82, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, 56. Jay Z, who is not quite billionaire status — shared the Forbes cover of the “400 Richest People in the World” with Buffet in 2010. Jigga, 43, has not been on the cover since.

A British student union group’s plan to promote domestic violence against women may have backfired. Members of the Cambridge University Student Union Women’s Campaign affixed stickers to Chris Brown’s fifth studio album, Fortune, at a HMV store in England. The stickers read: “WARNING: Do not buy this album! This man beats women.”

The domestic abuse statement stems from Brown’s conviction for felony assault on his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

But the worldwide news coverage of the British student group’s protest resulted in increased sales for Brown’s Fortune CDs in Europe, MSN reports.

Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney defended statements he made at a private fundraiser that was secretly recorded by someone attending (or working at) the fundraiser.

Speaking at the $50,000-per-plate closed door fundraising dinner back in May, Romney is heard saying 47 percent of voters are non-tax payers who voted for President Obama because they think they are victims. Romney may have gotten the 40% figure from a Tax Policy Center report that found 46.4% of households in America do not pay taxes.

In a scathing op-ed post titled “Wake up, Kate; photogs are always watching,” published on CNN.com, syndicated columnist Roland Martin tells England’s Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton to keep her clothes on in public.

Last week a French magazine published topless photos of Middleton and her husband, Prince William, on vacation in France. The scandal irked the Queen of England who is still fuming after pics leaked of Prince Harry’s naked romp with commoners in his private hotel suite in Las Vegas last month.

In a victory for the Royal family, a French court ordered Closer magazine to hand over all of the topless photos of the Duchess. The court will also fine the magazine $15,000 each time a photo is republished or distributed.
