Robert De Niro and Jay-Z have some “intense beef,” according to Page Six. At Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday party over the weekend, De Niro got into it with Jay-Z about an agreement he had made to record a song for the Tribeca Film Festival…and then never followed up on the promise:
“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. Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation,” the spy says. “He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back. It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude.” When Jay-Z tried to make a joke of it, saying he is terrible on the phone, a source says, “De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful.’”
“Beyoncé came over, but that didn’t calm Bob down. Everyone was saying there’s only one star in New York bigger and badder than Jay-Z, and that’s Robert De Niro. He can be quite scary when he’s angry.”
Padma Lakshmi has a truck driver trapped inside of her. No, really, she said that:
“A lot of men get frustrated with me, actually, because I am like a guy. Honestly, I’m like a truck driver trapped inside this body,” she shares. “I don’t want to be your best friend. I don’t expect you to give me a birthday card or send me flowers. I don’t need fancy trips. You could take me across the street. Don’t get me wrong. That stuff’s nice, but I am a physical and sensual person. I love to be held. I love massages. I’m just not a Hallmark kind of gal.”
