The first single will be out this winter, along with Love’s memoir, but the singer told New York magazine at Hole drummer Scott Lipps’ book launch Monday that she needs something “modern” — and that’s where Jay Z comes in. “We have the single, which comes out when my book comes out this winter. But we’re missing a song that’s modern. … I would love to do a duet with Jay Z,” Love said. “Wouldn’t that be great? [Gwyneth Paltrow] asked him if he heard my version of ’99 Problems’ and he said it was brilliant, so…” We’re betting on Love to make this happen, because it could just lead to a masterpiece. Like Jay Z supposedly said, her “99 Problems” update was pretty brilliant. Plus, Hova kind of owes it to the 49-year-old rocker, who gave him permission to use Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in his Justin Timberlake duet “Holy Grail.” Love and Jay could be the next addition to our list of unexpected collaborations. In the meantime, head over to New York magazine’s The Cut to see what Love had to say about Katy Perry being “boring” and her good friend Paltrow’s recent Vanity Fair controversy .
