Jay-Z loves hanging out with Coldplay singer Chris Martin and his family. The rapper, 39, thinks his children Apple, 5, and Moses, 3, are great. 'I love Chris’ wife [Gwyneth Paltrow]’ he admits. ‘And his kids call me “Uncle Jay”, and I really appreciate that.’
Jay-Z met Chris at a charity event in 2003, and they immediately bonded. ‘We clicked right away and it was like we were instant best friends,’ Jay-Z tells the Sunday Times magazine. ‘He is a fantastic person, very passionate about what he does, and also very analytical and intelligent.’
Jay-Z will support Coldplay when their UK tour kicks off next month. Meanwhile, Jay-Z reignited his feud with Noel Gallagher by singing about him on his latest track. The pair fell out when the Oasis guitarist criticised the decision to have the rapper headline Glastonbury in June.
Jay-Z retorted by beginning his set at the festival with the band's 1995 hit Wonderwall. And in the lyrics of Jockin’ Jay-Z, which has been produced by Kanye West, 31, the hip hop legend has another swipe at Noel, 41. ‘That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar/ Someone shoulda told him I’m a muthafucka rock star/ Today is gonna be the day that I’m gonna throw it back to you/ I’m living life as a rocker,’ he sings.
