Jay-Z has millions of fans across the world.

Sadly, Paul Anka is no longer one of them.

The famed singer-songwriter of hit songs including “Diana,” “My Way,” and “Lonely Boy,” Anka had harsh words for Jay-Z in a recent interview with TMZ.

Seriously. This is a real story.

“I called up Jay-Z because he did a track of ‘My Way’ where I loaned him the track,” Anka, 71, explained about his plans for an upcoming Duets album.


“I wanted to put him in on a rap with Michael Jackson in the middle.”

“So I called him up, but Jay-Z has totally blown me off. He won’t answer my calls, he’s inappropriate in his behavior. I love his wife, I think she’s great.”

“But Jay-Z wouldn’t even return the call.”

Anka noted that the album includes collaborations with both Michael Jackson and Dolly Parton, adding, “He’s too busy with his clothing line, who knows?”

Those be FIGHTIN’ words! Sort of. Not really. We doubt Jay meant any offense, or cares. But still, file this under unlikeliest/funniest celebrity feuds.
