Jay-Z might call you… maybe. According to singer Paul Anka, the rapper owes him several unreturned phone calls and he’s hopping mad about it.
Anka told TMZ that he wanted Jay on his new Duets album (which includes Michael Jackson) but he’s yet to hear back from him.
“I called up Jay-Z..I wanted to put him on a track with Michael Jackson. I called him up and Jay-Z has totally blown me off,” says Anka. “He’s totally inappropriate in his behavior. I love his wife…but Jay-Z wouldn’t return a call.” Interestingly, Hov sampled Anka in his “I Did It My Way” on the Blueprint 2.
This isn’t the first time Jay has been rumored to not return phone calls. Last year, actor Robert DeNiro reportedly fumed over the same thing. The New York Post reported that Bobby wanted Jay to do a song for his TriBeCa Film Festival. When the two ended up running into each other, Hov apparently “tried to joke his way out of the situation…but De Niro wouldn’t back down.” A source told the NYPost that “Bob was sitting at a table, and when Jay-Z went over to say hello, De Niro told Jay that he never called him back.”
