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.

Maino, Yung Berg, and Ray J were among the other performers. [NYT]XXL staff
