If you haven’t already heard, Jay-Z launched a new site, Life + Times (www.lifeandtimes.com) last week, and true to Jay-Z form, it is so ridiculously uber-cool, and a game-changer as far as websites and blogs go. I’m seriously such an amateur and I can see why Mr. Shawn Carter is Jay-Z!
Anyway, check it out – it covers everything that’s on his radar screen and currently piquing his interest in the worlds of music, art, sports, leisure, style, technology, design and style.
I, of course, first found out about it from one of my faves, Gwyneth Paltrow. As I have previously said, she writes one of my favorite blogs – Goop. Jay-Z told Gwyneth he started working on Life + Times in its various incarnations over a year ago. “I’ve thought about it forever. You know how it works, seeing other sites and being either inspired or saying, “That’s shit. I would do it like …”
As part of their deal, Gwyneth asked Jay-Z 5 questions, and she had to reciprocate (“I’ll show you mine if you let me see yours.”), and thus, is one of the people currently profiled on Life + Times.
So cute! What fun friends! So jealous!
By the way, one of Gwyneth’s 5 questions:
Q: You are the coolest man on Earth, how the f did you get like that?
A: I’m around great women, starting with my mom. Women keep men cool. The hotter the chick the cooler the guy … that sounds like a really bad rap line!
Well, all I have to say is, Jay-Z definitely keeps company with some very hot women (Beyonce, for one!), because this site is over-the-top FLY!
