There's no way we could be this lucky... right?!

Parlux Fragrances says their business stinks thanks to Jay Z!
The scent manufacturer is suing the music mogul, claiming the 46-year-old didn't really try to push their product like he promised.
The hitmaker had a licensing agreement with the company, in which he allowed Parlux to use his name and image for the 2013 cologne line Gold Jay Z.
But the way it's been selling — or rather, not selling — it probably should have been called Bronze Jay Z.
That's because the manufacturer is saying Beyoncé's husband was supposed to have a more active role in promoting the brand.
Apparently, the famous father declined to do promotional appearances at Macy's, in Women's Wear Daily, or on Good Morning America.
And, they claim the artist skipped out on meetings for follow-up fragrances, which is why those new products never hit store shelves.
He also supposedly passed on posting about the cologne on social media.
But we're betting Jay wishes he had taken the three seconds to craft a few 140-character tweets now, because Parlux is asking for a pretty penny!
The company says Gold Jay Z should have raked in $50 million within two years, but instead retailers are returning the fragrances!
They're suing for $18 million in damages.

Anything that can make us smell like the pop princess is welcome on our bathroom shelf.
The latest addition is a tropical-inspired perfume called Maui Fantasy, and the 34-year-old debuted it herself (above) on Instagram on Monday:
"Say aloha to my new destination fragrance #MauiFantasy!! 🌺 Coming soon!"
We don't know what it smells like, or how it will differ from her Island Fantasy scent, but we do know the bottle looks like a Christmas tree ornament for some reason.
Still, we bet there are plenty of tropical notes like hibiscus, some orchids, and maybe even a touch of ginger.
And if it's possible to stuff some inspirational quotes into a perfume, we hope there's that too!

Man, perfume commercials are almost always weird as hell.
The black and white clip has R-Patz doing that contemplative, brooding thing he does so well while walking the streets of New York.
But the truly strangest part is the series of "inspirational quotes" that appear throughout the video, like "Life is short," "Break the rules," "Live as if you'll die tomorrow," etc.
We're surprised they didn't just straight up write "Life is short… buy this perfume!" But it was implied, of course.
Anyway, watch the full ad (below)!
We don't know what we're more excited for!
This morning Ariana Grande swung by Good Morning America to chat it up about what she's currently up to — and she had some pretty exciting news!
After addressing the whole donut scandal and once again apologizing for her hurtful comments, she went on to talk about her new fragrance line, Ari!
The 22-year-old singer gave us the rundown on what it's like to immerse herself in the fragrance industry before teasing that she's announcing her new single soon — like REALLY soon!
Ch-ch-check out the interview (below) for yourself to help pump you up for her announcement later this week!
Having your own special wedding scent is pretty awesome!
Isn't that just so cool??? Now they'll always think of that day when they smell it!
"I'm getting married in November, and it's a very important time in my life."
Love, as the perfume is called, is the Modern Family star's second fragrance, coming after Sofia, which she released early last year.
This particular fragrance has top notes of mandarin, green apple, and orange blossom, with a special note of Colombian coffee flower, which holds meaning for the actress:
"I'm addicted to coffee, and I'd love to promote something that's so important to my country."
In fact, her country is big on perfumes in general, so it makes sense that she's creating her own. And we bet it'll be super popular there, too:
"In Colombia, we put cologne on babies. We're very into that, and grow up with perfumes and colognes being part of your daily routine. For a long time, I started liking men's colognes and perfumes — I thought they were more interesting."
The 43-year-old also takes this whole scent-making biz seriously:
"The people who buy my stuff, they're intelligent and I don't want to put my name on a product that I'm not involved with. I'm involved [with all of these items] from the start. I pick colors, designs, have to approve everything."
You gotta admire that ethic!
And we really can't wait for her walk down the aisle in November! It's right around the corner!
