I understand that, but doesn't the movie itself still take place in 20's? I would completely understand it if they had modernized it so that the story would still be the same but take place in 2000's. Then I would not criticize the music soundtrack at all.

Unfortunately, it isn't the case..

P.S. I consider myself a fan of Jay-Z, Beyonce, Gotye, Sia, etc so it has nothing to do with hating the singers. Jay-Z has had some awesome songs over his career, Gotye is great too.
