    Jack White and Jay-Z? No, we're not yanking your chain. Stranger pairings have happened over the years, so don't act like this is something hanging out so far out in left field that it may actually be a stroke of sheer brilliance! In the British edition of GQ -why do they get all the fun? Why not American GQ, Jackie Boy?- White revealed that he has recorded a new song with the rapper and husband of Beyonce. He didn't provide specifics about the tune, such as when, where and how it will be released, but he did say, "It was incredible. I played him something that I've been kicking around for a while and he immediately came out with words for it. It's unbelievable-sounding."

    Wow, thanks for those gory and descriptive details. We totally get a sense of the core of the song from those adjectives. Oh wait, there weren't any, other than "incredible." Rock stars, man. They dangle the carrot of bait in front of us and then yank it back when we are just about to bite.

    Who should collaborate next Lady Gaga and Slayer?
