Roc Nation CEO Jay Z has a lot to smile about these days as reports claim movie directing icon Steven Spielberg's two children are officially on Jigga's growing roster.
Buzz behind Spielberg's kids being down with Team Roc Nation sprouted online this week.
Teen Vogue's Young Hollywood Party, feting the mag's 11th anniversary at a West Hollywood home, had both teen stars (Hailee Steinfeld, Kiernan Shipka) and "kids of" (Patrick Schwarzenegger, Hannah Bronfman). But two on hand were both: Sasha Spielberg, 23, and Theo Spielberg, 25 (and both wearing Emporio Armani). (Hollywood Reporter)
Spielberg's daughter already has big things in the works with major television network ABC.
The DJ siblings released their EP Brother/Sister earlier in 2013 under the name Wardell and have signed with Roc Nation, the company founded by Jay Z, for management. Meanwhile, Sasha recently sold the pilot Girls Without Boys -- co-written with Emily Goldwyn (daughter of John), with Rashida Jones producing -- to ABC. "But music is still my passion," Sasha tells THR. "I am going to find a way to balance both." (Hollywood Reporter)
The two siblings are expected to release an album through Roc Nation next year.
The duo released their EP Brother/Sister earlier in 2013 with fledgling label National Anthem, featuring the song "Opossum." This year they signed with Jay Z's Roc Nation management company. They will put out an album sometime in 2014. (TIME)
Back in 2011, movie star Jada Pinkett-Smith spoke on her daughter, Willow, throwing up the Roc with Jay.
"He's very professional, he's a good partner, and we are about to do a movie with him, the 'Annie' joint with Willow [Smith], so he's a good partner...You know, we just have great teams and we have great partnership. It's all about partnering. And that's the thing that I've learned about being in this business. You can't expect to do great things by yourself that you have to be able to partner up with people."
