The Great Gatsby is considered by many to the Great American Novel. Telling as it does the rise and fall of a group of lives in the roaring 1920s, one might expect some period appropriate music in the upcoming film adaptation. But, of course, this being a Baz Luhrmann adaptation, the film will be scored with new rap, rock, and pop songs. Because when you think of F. Scott Fitzgerald, your mind immediately turns to Lana Del Rey, right?

Today in Justin Timberlake news, it’s being reported that he and Jay-Z are planning a major stadium tour this summer. Both artists recently performed together at the Grammys, and before that Jay joined Timberlake during a show in New Orleans over the Super Bowl weekend.

Oh, Courtney Love. One would have thought that, with a little bit of age and that fact that we’re now three years deep into a new decade, perhaps some of her capacity for massive public embarrassment would have scaled back or lessened somewhat. But, of course, what were we thinking—this is Courtney Love we’re talking about, after all, and when she isn’t attempting cringe-worthy Twitter wars with other musicians or publically (and heartbreakingly) alienating/embarrassing her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, she’s occasionally warbling through a horrendous cover or a new Hole song. Case in point, her newest cover: Jay-Z’s “99 Problems.”

Jay-Z and F. Scott Fitzgerald are American icons of different caliber, no doubt. But movie director Baz Luhrmann is going to combine their artistry in his upcoming adaptation of Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Word is that Hova is working tirelessly on the film’s score.

Jeez, some people just have nothing but bad luck. Case in point: notorious hard-luck cases Jay-Z and Beyonce, who have had nothing but bad lately (having their first child, hobnobbing with the President of the United States, Beyonce was selected to perform during next year’s Super Bowl halftime show), had another in their long line of bad days recently: the poor couple failed to have the name of their daughter, Blue Ivy, trademarked so that they monetize and capitalize on the life of their only child. What a drag, right?

At least it’s not an over the hill rock act hired solely because they won’t offend anyone, right?
That’s what we were thinking, anyway, when it was announced today that Beyoncé would be the halftime show performer for Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, located in New Orleans. The news initially leaked via an anonymous person in the know; later, Beyoncé’s official site released a picture of the singer in eye black with the Super Bowl date printed on her face.
