Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Is Seriously Considering Running For President

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been winning all year! To start off, Forbes recently named him the highest paid actor in the world, and now People Magazine has crowned him 2016’s Sexiest Man Alive.

All the coins and sexiness aside, The Rock is actually considering running for president.

 Is Donald Trump’s win, and Kanye West’s quest to run in 2020 making it the new normal for celebs to seriously consider running for president?

“I used to say it jokingly but every time I was asked, it was with a real genuine interest. And it was very earnest,” Dwayne said to PEOPLE.

“And so I started to really think. Could I make a difference? Could I surround myself with really brilliant people to help me make decisions? Do I care about this country? And when the answers continued to come up yes, then I thought, there’s a good chance. Yeah, one day. Then we’ll do another interview like this.” He continued.

Apple Considering Tidal Music Purchase

Apple is exploring the purchase of rival music streaming service Tidal, which is run by rap star Jay-Z, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

The paper said Apple is interested in using the company to beef-up its own year-old steaming service Apple Music.

Talks between the companies are ongoing and might not result in a tie-up, the Journal said, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.

Executives at Tidal have not spoken with Apple about being acquired, the Journal reported, quoting a Tidal spokesperson.

Apple declined to comment when contacted by AFP.

Tidal soared in popularity early this year after Beyonce released her latest album “Lemonade” exclusively on the service, although it was also broadcast in a film version on HBO and quickly made available on iTunes.

Tidal, which had a mixed reception after its relaunch last year, has heavily promoted exclusives, such as albums by Rihanna and Kanye West.

The company has been trying to seize some of the fast-growing streaming market from Spotify, which focuses on wide and easy access rather than exclusives.

Tidal subscriptions cost $10 or $20 monthly, depending on whether a user wants high-fidelity sound.

Jay-Z bought Tidal from Europe-based Aspiro early last year in a deal valued at slightly more than $56 million.
