When different worlds collide

Today's riddle: What do you get when you cross Justin Bieber with Kanye West?

We have no idea but it sounds kinda scary.  We try to stay hip here at the Sanctuary, but since "hip" hasn't been part of the vernacular in 40 years we are helplessly behind. Which is why we cruise Al Gore's marvelous portal to discovery: a chance to uncover news and events that are "now trending" in our vast musical universe. 

(And, yes, we have NOTHING for you today.)

Except this: Look what has the world a-twitter (from msn.com, via any number of sources):

Rapper Kanye West has sparked rumors of a collaboration with teen sensation Justin Bieber after the pair struck up a friendship on Twitter.com.

The pair began sending messages to each other on the microblogging site on Sunday, with the "Stronger" hitmaker starting the exchange by writing, "Listening to Justin Bieber Runaway Love. I love Sunday mornings in the crib."

Bieber admits he was stunned to learn West was listening to his material, and replied, "It's not a so what moment for me. I'm 16 and a fan. I'm kinda hyped u are listening to my stuff. Thank u. Nice sunday morning."

The "Baby" singer then praised the rapper's music, before West reached out to the 16-year-old and suggested a collaboration with him and pal Raekwon.

If this won't get you signed up on Twitter we don't know what it's going to take. Our dream: One day Kanye will twit: "I love Sunday mornings at the Sanctuary!"
