Noel Gallagher has been acting up once again. In an interview early March, Noel Gallagher from Oasis bragged to talkSPORT magazine that he could buy anything he wanted and that his black AMEX card could not be denied anywhere.
Noel Gallagher: “I don’t mean to be f***ing rude but I do won a black Amex card that has unlimited credit and cannot be denied anywhere. I could walk into a showroom selling Boeing 747s and, regardless of whether I could afford it, they’d have to accept the card.” and continued to say “When I was taking drugs on a regular basis it was a frightening experience for the record company. You could have literally gone out and bought a house on a whim – and I have more whims that I care to mention.”
Apparently he likes to take it out, Noel Gallagher took out his black American Express card during the filming of the 2007 BRIT Awards backstage show, see culture references.
What does $199 get you? A semi-decent hotel room, probably a good dinner, plenty of drinks for a night (so long as you’re not drinking a really nice wine), or some crazy book on how to get a Centurion card? Our guess is that the only thing this book “Getting A Black Card For Dummies” gets you, is $199 closer to your $250,000 required annual spend (in a rolling 12 month period) with American Express. Ever hear the expression if it is too good to be true it probably is? Well, if you could get the card by spending $199 everyone would have it, and it wouldn’t be worth anything anymore would it? Worried about Madoff Ponzi schemesof late? If yes, steer clear, if not, hey, buy this book that alleges “no need to increase your spending”! Although hey, we don’t know first hand, since we haven’t read the book, but it does remind us a lot of our previous post on the “black card kit” that you too can buy for $75 or $29.99 (is it even metal??). So now you can look like you have money, even though you really don’t, but paid $29 to look like you do? We think it would be best if to focus on actually making money, and if you do want a Centurion Card, then you should read our guide, which many of our readers and (Centurion card holders) helped write.
If you don’t believe us regarding the “Black Card for Dummies Book“, feel free to prove us wrong (prove that the books truly are meant for dummies), and buy the book (good luck).
We welcome you to submit your stories and comments to us when you get your Centurion Card, or if you’d rather waste a little less (it is the time to save) spend $29.99 and get the black card kit?
Don’t worry, we have nothing to do with either of these schemes!
Kimberly Noel Kardashian was born October 21, 1980 and is an American celebutante, socialite, model, actress, apparel retailer, and television personality. She is perhaps best known for her social life, stolen sex tape, and her role on the E! reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
What’s less well-known is the fact that Kim Kardashian got a chance at fame and grew up with money earned by her father, Robert Kardashian (2/22/1944 – 9/30/2003): successful attorney who represented O. J. Simpson during part of the Simpson murder trial and was close friends with Simpson.
Kim Kardashian and her siblings denied allegations that they improperly charged more than $120,000 in charges on the Black Card used by R&B singer Brandy Norwood’s mother (verified by court documents). In an answer to the Superior Court lawsuit filed by Sonja Norwood in Los Angeles, the Kardashians “deny generally and specifically each and every allegation,” the papers say.
Norwood’s lawsuit, which also names Kardashian’s siblings Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Jr., alleges they ran up the charges in 2006 and 2007. It seeks the return of the money plus 10 percent interest.
Kim Kardashian had access to the American Express card when she worked as a stylist for Brandy in 2004 (Brandy’s brother, Ray J, also appeared in the infamous sex tape with Kim). Norwood claims Kim later passed on the card number to her siblings, who also allegedly made unauthorized charges.
Now why would Kardashian feel the need to burn money using Brandy’s AMEX when she has a Centurion Card of her own? That’s just silly.
Gossip, gossip. Paolo Zampolli is founder of ID Models Management and one of the world’s premier model agents. Well, this entry isn’t about Zampolli, but rather Lil’ Kim who had the audacity to wear a diamond-studded Black AMEX around her neck with his name on it in a Nylon Magazine photo shoot.
“It’s crazy,” Zampolli said. “I have my real black card in my wallet. It’s got to be a fake. Let me take her to Cipriani’s and I’ll pay for lunch with my real one.” Lil’ Kim’s rep insisted the rapper hadn’t stolen one of Zampolli’s old cards. “Nylon’s stylist gave it to her,” she revealed. No comment from the stylist.
Of course, we know that Lil’ Kim has her own Black Card. It’s just a little weird that she would wear a fake one instead of her own. Maybe the setting of diamonds in Kim’s card would have created problems with swiping. But then, that still leaves the question, why not a fake of Kim’s own Black AMEX? There are some things the world may never know…
