Jay-Z arrived at London's Heathrow Airport this morning after spending the weekend in Dallas, where he joined LeBron James on Saturday for their annual 2 Kings dinner. The meal coincided with NBA's All-Star weekend, but Jay-Z was more interested in discussing the updated version of "We Are the World" that debuted during the Olympics. Turns out, he wasn't a fan. "I think 'We Are the World' is like 'Thriller' to me. I don't ever wanna see it touched," he said. "I'm a fan of music. I know the plight and everything that's going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts. . . I think it's time for us to make a new [song]." Jay-Z's critique comes despite the star power behind the cover version, but tell us what you think — do you agree with Jay-Z that "We Are the World" shouldn't have been remade?
