I know it’s wrong, but whenever I read about a starlet collaborating with some shaggy song-writing dude, I always wonder how often the guy thinks: “What an excellent opportunity to explore new musical ideas and pathways. This young woman will act as my muse, even as I, in turn, inspire her. What a delightful tapestry of sound we will weave together!” versus, “Oh. My. God. I might get a chance to bang the chick from ___________.”
I’m thinking it’s 40/60.
