News: Jay-Z Interviews Gwyneth Paltrow And Vice-Versa

Award winning Actress Gwyneth Paltrow contacted Rap mogul Jay-Z  to conduct an interview about Hov’s most recent work of art, Life + Times. Being the business man that he is, he replied “I’ll show you mine if you let me see yours”. So they did just that, check out excerpts of both interviews down below and be sure to check out the full interviews over at L+TGOOP.

Jay-Z:

Shawn Carter: The public at large is discovering your ability to sing. When did you first discover you had that talent?

Gwyneth Paltrow: I kind of always sang. My mother has a great voice and was always singing jazz around the house and I think she passed on her musicality to my brother and myself. I sang in an a capella singing group and I always thought that somewhere down the line I would dust off my pipes and use them but I didn’t know I would be so old when it happened. When I sang with you one night at the Royal Albert Hall a few years ago, it was so terrifying. I thought that would be the end of it. This has been a surprise to me as much as anybody else. But I love it.

Gwyneth Paltrow:

GP: You are the coolest man on Earth, how the f did you get like that?

SC: I’m around great women, starting with my mom. Women keep men cool. The hotter the chick the cooler the guy … that sounds like a really bad rap line!

GP: Life + Times is incredible—aesthetically, culturally … When did you get the idea to start it and how long have you been working on it?

SC: I started working on it in its various incarnations over a year ago. I’ve thought about it forever. You know how it works, seeing other sites and being either inspired or saying, “That’s shit. I would do it like …”

GP: I love seeing everything through your filter, how do you decide what you are going to cover? How personal is this?

SC: Well there is a basic metric for what we cover but, more importantly, I believe it’s how we cover it. The DNA is to basically let the subject speak for itself. We don’t want to tell you what to think. As far as how personal? I would say it has to pique my interest.
