Jay-Z and Alicia Keys scrap World Cup song – Daily Gossip

Gaga's rider, Winehouse's 'Glee', Snoop in weed-smoking shocker – your music gossip stop

Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys have given up trying to write a World Cup song, after admitting that they don’t know enough about football to do it justice. Keys admitted, “If we did a record about soccer it would be obvious we didn’t know much more about the sport than who David Beckham is,” (The Sun). However, Jay-Z may disagree, as he spoke at length about how much he loves Arsenal earlier this month (March 22), in an interview with the club’s official magazine.

From the papers:

Lady Gaga‘s rider consists of a plate of cheese (on ice), a whole roast chicken and no alcohol (Daily Star).
