Millionaire rapper Jay-Z wants to buy a stake in London soccer club Arsenal, because he thinks star player Thierry Henry is "cool" and the sport's social scene is "blinging".

The GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS star had a secret meeting with club owner ROMAN ABRAMOVICH last month (SEP05) to discuss his investment in the premiership club.

A source from British newspaper Sunday Mirror says, "Jay-Z loves football - he thinks the whole scene is very bling. He has also met Henry and thinks he is really cool.

"Jay-Z is a man who gets what he wants - and he wants a portion of a premiership club."
