Andy Samberg Afraid to Collaborate With Fiancee Joanna Newsom

We hate to crush your mid-day daydream fantasy consisting of the cutest collab of all time—everyone's favorite adorbs singer/harpist Joanna Newsom and her equally adorbs man, The Lonely Island funnyman Andy Samberg. 

But we're going to: Samberg said it's simply not gunna happen.

The musical duo, who announced their engagement in February, are one of the greater examples of when opposites attract:

Samberg is a Saturday Night Live vet famous for his goofball raps as part of the Lonely Island trio and Newsom is a genteel goddess whose intoxicating folk tunes could charm a rabid dog.

Really the only thing they outwardly seem to share is the ability to produce music (albeit very different kinds) and the ability to exude lethal levels of cuteness. 

It's true! Check out the cute here and the cute here.

But, as previously mentioned, their cutes will never combine—musically.

In an interview with Glamour, Samberg explained the couple-collab dilemma.

"We've talked about [collaborating]," he said. 

"But we've decided ultimately that her fans would probably kill me in my sleep. What she does is so, like, actually beautiful and important."

OK, so that's pretty damn "d'aaaaaw," but he also just ruined our day. 

Did he ever think that maybe some fans would be equally likely to kill him in his sleep for not making pretty, funny, bizarro rap/harp music with his future wife?!!!!!
