My tastes stay the same; the world's get better

Has Jay-Z drawn first blood in his war with Cristal? The New York Times says maybe, as the big stars forwent (what is the past tense of forgo, anyway?) the big bucks champagne for something a little more pedestrian at the BET awards last week.

Background if you who don't read the Economist or listen to Morning Edition: Jay-Z was pissed when a Cristal executive seemed less than thrilled the champagne had become synonymous with thug life, so the rapper started a boycott in his songs and at his clubs.

The winner in all of this? My choice of champagne, Veuve Clicquot. The NYT says it was seen on tables instead of Cristal at last week's awards show. Plus, Christina Aguilera drinks it when she's slumming around with GQ reporters, so there's that, too.

I've been drinking Veuve for a couple years. It's nice to see that Jay-Z is finally macking my style.

I hear a remix of "Big Pimpin" in the works:

Big pimpin up in N-Y-C / It's just the Jigga Man, Pimp C, and D-A-V-E
