    Velvet-throated R&B singer Sade revealed to The Los Angeles Times that Jay-Z and other rappers have approached her about laying down raps over beats or having her sing the hooks on their records, but she has denied them. Politely, of course. "I'm too scared," Sade said. "They'll find me out. It's like The Wizard of Oz. They'll find out there's nothing there. As for collaborations, I'm collaborating with the band and do what we do. I see myself as a member of this band who does these songs that we write."

    Wow, Sade is one ballsy, classy lady. As for her concern that collaborators would find that there is "nothing there," that's not possible!

    Should Sade let her guard down and work with rappers who request to do so with her? Or should she keep the mystique going?
