Jay-Z may be a girl's best friend, but he sure isn't Paul Anka's.

Anka, a famed singer-songwriter who penned hit songs including "Diana," "My Way," and "Lonely Boy," had some harsh words for Jay-Z in a recent interview with TMZ.

"I called up Jay-Z because he did a track of 'My Way' where I loaned him the track," Anka explained about his plans for an upcoming "Duets" album. "I wanted to put him in on a rap with Michael Jackson in the middle. 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 return the call."

Anka mentioned that the album does include collaborations with both Michael Jackson and Dolly Parton, before adding, "He's too busy with his clothing line, who knows?"
