The Amber Alert News Roundup: Pharrell to Curate NBA 2K15, Blake Lively Launches Lifestyle Brand & Gisele Bündchen Makes $128,000 a Day

Pharrell Williams has been tapped to curate the soundtrack for 'NBA 2K15,' the upcoming installment of the best-selling basketball video game franchise, set for release on October 7th.  During a press conference held in NYC on Monday, Pharrell revealed that it was members of his staff (all girls and women) that helped him narrow down his selections which includes songs from System of a Down and Strafe.  Now that's an interesting twist!  (Billboard)

Last November, Blake Lively divulged that she would be launching her own company and today, we've got more details on her upcoming venture.  It appears Blake's new company will be called Preserve and it's a curated lifestyle brand that will sell unique, artisanal items hand-selected by Blake herself.  Blake promises that it's nothing we've ever seen before and with her level of taste I must admit I'm intrigued.  Look for that to drop next week. (E!)

In today's unbothered news, Forbes is reporting that Gisele Bündchen had the best year ever in 2013, raking in an astounding $47 million, or $128,000 a day.  Over the past year she's added campaigns with H&M and Chanel to her roster and was even selected to deliver the World Cup on behalf of Louis Vuitton earlier this week.  She won!

In a new ad for the Re2pect collection of products from Nike's Jordan Brand, Jay Z, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Carmelo Anthony, and more pay tribute to Derek Jeter who retires this year.  The tear jerking ad debuted last night during Jeter's 14th and final All-Star Game in Minnesota.
