Let's be honest, Jason Priestley has a point.
Watching the "throne" is one thing, but Jay-Z asked 99 of his best buds to cough up forty grand EACH to keep the "king" seated!
One hundred guests are donating $40,000 each at Jay's 40/40 Club — HOV sure likes 40s, eh? — to dine and schmooze with not only the Perezident of the U.S. but also the King and Queen of Hip-Hop!
Wowzers!! That's four million dollars!!
We wonder why the Prez doesn't visit NYC more often? For that kind of scrill we would always keep an empire state of mind!!
