As you may have heard, super-friends Jay-Z and Chris Martin just announced a joint Coldplay/Jay performance at the Barclay’s Center on New Year’s Eve.
Yes, it’s a huge event for the venue, marks the second such collaboration (they also performed together on New Year’s Eve 2010 in Las Vegas), probably has some significance as far as genre crossover and the way money is made in the music industry these days, and guarantees that traffic and cab availability in all surrounding areas are going to be even more of a nightmare that usual on NYE. More importantly, though, this leads us to a few questions about Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Namely, will they also be in Brooklyn, and in a location where we can potentially all hang out? What will they be wearing? Can we expect more forthcoming, extremely general Brooklyn-centric posts on GOOP? Can this blog post be used in court as evidence against me in the (totally hypothetical) event of an enforced restraining order? All unclear.
Anyway, tickets for the event go on sale this coming Saturday, 11/17, if you care about that kind of thing.
