Jay-Z Interviews Gwyneth Paltrow About Hip-Hop And Nirvana

April 13, 2011
Jay-Z Interviews Gwyneth Paltrow About Hip-Hop And NirvanaGwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she has a passion for hip-hop and Nirvana.

The actress, who is married to Coldplay's Chris Martin, spoke about her music tastes during an interview with friend, Jay-Z.

Paltrow said she was first exposed to hip-hop when she was 16 and that she idolised collectives like Public Enemy, Run-DMC and NWA.

She told Jay-Z: "I was fascinated by lyrics as rhythm and how [Dr] Dre had a such different cadence and perspective from say, Eazy-E, who I thought was one of the most ironic and brilliant voices hip-hop has ever had."

Jay-Z, who admitted he was surprised by Paltrow's knowledge of lyrics, then asked if her obsession extended in other genres.

"Aside from hip-hop I loved, I was very into alternative stuff like New Order (which did become pretty mainstream) and The Cure and bands like Yaz and Book of Love," she said.

"But when Nirvana came out, my mind was kind of blown."

She added: "I remember sitting around a record player playing 'Nevermind' for days in a row with my college friends really mesmerized by that record, as everybody was at the time. I couldn't believe my ears."

Paltrow spoke to Jay-Z during an interview on his new website, Life + Times.

With havin so much written cotennt do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique cotennt I've either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help reduce cotennt from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

I have an ezrun 35A/3800kv combo that cogs even at higher spdees, and only at full throttle.. any ideas what it could be?I can run it at 15mph, hit full throttle and it just stutters and hardly picks up speed. If I slowly pull the trottle, it runs really well and tops 30mph like it should.Ruled out the battery, it works even with a hotter motor, so thats ok and powerful enough. Also checked my soldering on the deans plug, and it was good as well.Ever come across a similar problem?
