Superstar entertainers, food connoisseurs, ascending media moguls. Jay-Z and Gwyneth Paltrow have more in common than you might think.

Paltrow interviewed the rapper and business mogul for her GOOP, getting a brief inside look at his new website, Life + Style, as well as some insight into his different tastes and passions. She had one burning question of particular import:

"You are the coolest man on Earth, how the f did you get like that?" Paltrow inquired. Jay-Z, of course, had a fittingly cool answer.

"I'm around great women, starting with my mom. Women keep men cool. The hotter the chick the cooler the guy... that sounds like a really bad rap line! " he said.

As for his tastes, Jay gave a rundown of some of his favorites:

Food: Batali (he's like a rock star)
Music: MARLEY (the perfect blend of love and gangster)
Art: BASQUIAT (where music and art met and fell in love)
Style: MARC JACOBS (he takes the Bronx experience like 40 below boots and bubble gooses and puts it on the runway)
*Disclaimer: I know it's one goose 2 geese..
Sports: Muhammad ALI (enough said)
And my favorite spot to be leisurely is wherever family, friends, good food and wine are.
