Jay-Z “I Have A Sense Of Humor Like A Brit,” And More In “The Roundup”

The Roc was in the building over the weekend at the Glastonbury Festival. Jay-Z, of course, was the headliner (See video.). But Kanye West made headlines and he wasn’t even there. And didn’t complain about not being there. Amy Winehouse, however, had a harsh comment for ‘Ye that brought his name to the forefront when she called the Chicago star “a c*nt.” Hov, for his part, said he’d play the peace broker. “I don’t agree with [what she said],” he told MTV Base. “He’s my brother and the biggest artist on Roc-A-Fella right now. I guess I should hook them up, because he’s a great guy, too. I don’t know what the problem is. I don’t know where that came from.” Jay also explained his taunt toward Oasis front man Noel Gallager. “That’s my sense of humor,” he said. “I have a sense of humor like a Brit, so I thought people they would appreciate that. [He] was one of the biggest detractors [against my appearance] so I figured it was a cool way to start the show.” [MTV News]

The Hughes Brothers have partnered with HBO for “Gentleman of Leisure,” a drama series project that follows the world of prostitution. Interscope head Jimmy Iovine will help produce. The project will offer a view into the ways of prostitution through the eyes of a pimp set the retire. Tension will arise from the old-school pimps versus the young upstarts, who don’t abide by many of the codes and honor that were documented in the Hughes Brothers documentary “American Pimp.” A date has yet to be set for “Gentleman of Leisure.” [Hollywood Reporter]

T-Pain took over New York momentarily on Sunday night. The Tallahassee crooner headlined the Dr. Pepper School’s Out Concert at Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan and had more words to say for all the Auto-Tune addicts out there. “It’s the hip-hop circus and I’m the ringleader,” he declared. Maino, Yung Berg, and Ray J were among the other performers. [NYT]XXL staff
