Gwyneth Paltrow dropped some hints yesterday on Good Morning America that she may duet with Cee Lo Green when they appear together as host and musical guest on the January 15th episode of Saturday Night Live.

The actress, who recently sang a safe-for-tv version of Green's hit "Fuck You" on an episode of Glee, told the New York Post that she has been in touch with the singer about a potential collaboration, though no plans have been set.

But Cee Lo has already expressed interest in working with Paltrow. In December, he told E! Online that he and Paltrow were "considering a few things" regarding future team-ups.

If this pans out, it would be another bold step for Paltrow's career as a singer. She already impressed audiences with her performance of the song "Country Strong" at the CMA Awards, and the film of the same name, in which she stars as a troubled country singer, is likely to score several music nominations as awards season rolls around. She's also set to return for another episode of Glee before the end of the show's second season.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
