Jay Z tossed enough $2 bills from Made in America 's Philly stage that they rained onto the "rowdy crowd," according to Mashable.
And yet we couldn't find a photo, video or eyewitness quote confirming any kind of Jay Z money shower.
Higher, faster, crazier.
Roller coaster designers are always trying to outdo what's been done before.
Next year's most-talked about ride might be Batman the Ride at Six Flag Fiesta Texas in San Antonio.

Tourists coming to Philly for Budweiser’s Made in America concert this weekend stopped by LOVE Park Saturday morning and met one of our city’s unique individuals, Michael Grant, who is more commonly known as Philly Jesus.
Dennis Herrera of Staten Island, New York, was passing through the park with his girlfriend and his brother and wanted to get a picture with Philly Jesus, but ended up getting more than he bargained for.
Grant had Herrera get into the fountain to be baptized, which Herrera's brother caught on camera.

As it turns out, making it in Philly doesn't mean that you can make it anywhere. Or, at least that's what the critics of Los Angeles' Made in America festival are saying.
The Los Angeles Times today posted a blog detailing the myriad problems the city is facing with throwing this weekend's MIA, saying in part that the idea to have a West Coast version was inspired by the success we saw with the festivities last year. Unfortunately, though, it looks like that success just isn't translating:
In its favor, Made in America has L.A.'s top public official — Mayor Eric Garcetti. He pointed to the estimated $10 million the festival pumped into Philadelphia during its first year.
Hello Kitty is not a cat, and she's British.
But wait, this just in -- Hello Kitty is not human either.
The Expendables was one of Hollywood's schockliest experiments: Corral a bunch of seriously aging movie stars and see if audiences will watch them join forces for another shoot-'em-up.
It worked. Sylvester Stallone ran with the project, rewriting the script and installing himself as director and star, and The Expendables grossed more than $274 million worldwide, with $305 million more for the sequel.
The Expendables 3, still in theaters, had a disappointing start a couple of weeks ago, but part of the blame might belong to a pirated version being seen 5 million times before the opening.

When The Sopranos cut to black in 2007, it left a lot of viewers wondering what exactly happened to our hero, Tony Soprano. Did he die? Did your cable cut out? Will we see AJ's horrible chinstrap ever again? The debate still rages to this day.
This day, however, may be the last day for that debate thanks to a Vox piece in which creator David Chase flat-out says that Tony didn't die in the Sopranos finale. Don't get your hopes up, though—there's no explanation, only the simple statement that Tony is not dead.
Vox reporter Martha P. Nochimson got the scoop during an interview in, fittingly, a coffee shop:
Facebook and Twitter don't always add to the public debate about important subjects because users tend to shy away from polarizing issues.
That's the surprising finding of a new Pew Research Center study that's creating a lot of buzz.
"Social Media and the Spiral of Silence" set out to show whether "those who think they hold minority opinions often self-censor, failing to speak out for fear of ostracism or ridicule."
