They always say you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friends nose, because they already have a full-time employee who’s job is doing only that. Earlier today Gwyneth Paltrow interviewed Jay-Z for her lifestyles site GOOP, and immediately afterward Jay-Z interviewed Gwyneth on his new man-GOOP site Life + Times. Jay-Z and Gwyneth’s friendship has always been a thing of wonder, but this time they take it to a whole new level. In her interview, titled “Straight Outta Compton?”, the rap superstar tells his bestie that he’s “very surprised at your extensive knowledge of hip-hop songs. Particularly how you can sing ’90s hip-hip songs word for word. I can’t even do that!,” while Gwyneth reps Biggie Smalls over Tupac: “Biggie by miles.” Jay-Z and Gwyn then wrote mash notes and had a pillow fight on 800-count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Meanwhile over on GOOP, you could tell Paltrow was practically weaving a friendship bracelet from newborn emu leather as she gushed about the fabulous Mr. Carter. “As someone who has walked through museums with you, eaten with you, heard music with you, I know firsthand how creativity in all areas lifts your consciousness,” she raves. Maybe after they’re done high-fiving for a thousand years, Jay-Z and Gwyn can sing a duet of Cee-Lo’s new song “Friend You,” then inhale each other’s farts out of $2,000 crystal cognac snifters. Friends 4 Eva!
