Jay-Z and Colin Farrell join Jonathan Ross for this week's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross on BBC One.

Jay-Z reveals his friend President Barack Obama loves hip-hop: "When I called him he was playing Blueprint in the gym."

He tells Jonathan that Beyonce steals her moves from him: "All the single ladies – that was me!"

And he upstaged P Diddy for his 40th: "Puff throws the best parties ever but I got him this time... he practically MC'd my party."

Jay-Z also says you are never too old to rap: "It can't be a young man's game."

And he predicts a second term for Obama: "I've been invited [to the White House] a couple of times... hopefully we'll keep him in eight years so I'll have time to get there."

He also confirms he'll reprise the Wireless Festival in July.

Colin Farrell is candid about how drink controlled him: "There were times when I was with my son and I was wondering how long I would have to spend before I could go off and get p****d."

But he says: "Now – two hours in the pub, then I get bored. I was at that party for long enough."

Also joining Jonathan this week are Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova and comedian Jason Manford.

A Hotsauce TV production.

Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, 10.35pm, Friday 19 February 2010, BBC One.
