Jay-Z: it’s the board meeting of the year as the greatest rapper in the game schools The Ticket in how to do business and gives Prez Obama advice on how to survive a shellacking.

Goldfrapp: Tony Clayton-Lea talks to Alison Goldfrapp about art-school days, outrageous stage gear and late-flowering lesbianism.
 
Beach House: ahead of their visit to Dublin next week for a sold-out show at Vicar Street, Beach House talk to Siobhan Kane about their intimate, dreamy, fragile sounds.

Album club: this month, the club gather to gasbag about Belle & Sebastian’s “Write About Love”

Plus: reviews of music releases from Jenny & Johnny (CD of the Week slot for “I’m Having Fun Now”), Take That, Tanlines, Gregory & The Hawk, My Chemical Romance, Nicki Minaj, Sharon Shannon and more, plus new movies on the block including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Chico & Rita (really looking forward to seeing this), Fathers of Girls and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall his Past Lives .

All this and more in The Ticket, in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules. Declare an interest where one should be declared. Plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Plugs which plug the same stuff every week will also be deleted – if people ain’t interested by now, you should really get the message. Your reign on the top was shorter than leprachauns.
