Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan was caught on-camera winding back social progress when Access Hollywood reporter Maria Menounos asked the 22-year-old Barack Obama supporter what she felt on election night.“It was really exciting. It’s…it was such a…It’s an amazing feeling. It’s our first, you know, (more…)
A woman was stretchered out of a Three 6 Mafia concert last night and two people arrested as a fight broke out at the LA House of Blues where the ‘Hollyhood’ rappers were performing. Allegedly a woman had her leg broken as a result of the stampede which ensued once the LAPD entered the building to shut the concert down. DJ Paul and Juicy J moved out to Hollywood after winning their Oscar for the track It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp from the movie Hustle and Flow in 2006. DJ Paul even informed IHipHop.com in a previous interview that he found the people of Hollywood ‘very welcoming and actually enjoyed the way of living out West. ‘
It is close to seventy years since the Hollywood Palladium first opened its doors. The venue was the place that encouraged the careers of artists like Frank Sinatra and performers such as the Rolling Stones and James Brown as well as holding high profile parties for the likes of John F Kennedy and dare I say in the same breath as JFK, Paris Hilton and Lyndsey Lohan. The 4,000 capacity venue was leased to Live Nation back in 2007 and the company decided to make some changes to the iconic venue in an attempt to restore the art-deco inspired building to its former glory. So who better to hit the stage on the opening night on October 15th but Live Nation’s very own poster boy Jay Z. “Just as Frank ushered in a golden era, I hope this opening will mark the beginning of a resurgence in generation-defining live music,” said Brooklyn’s finest.
LAPD, yeah we all know what those guys are like, stopped a car being driven by one of Puffy’s boys this past weekend while the Didster and his entourage were cruising down Sunset. The car which wasnt tagged correctly alerted the watchful eyes of the LAPD and the stopped the vehicle to check it out. Upon seeing their boy being stopped and questioned Puffy and a couple of others from the second vehicle walked over to see just what the issue was, (you know how New Yorkers be on their guard when dealing with the LAPD) for the cops to pull a gun on Diddy and those with him. Allegedly the cops didnt realize that Diddy was part of the group who had approached nonthreatening and with extreme caution, but once they realized it was in fact Sean Combs it was high fives all round, autographs were signed and everyone went on their way peacefully.
Not quite sure what or who Diddy is doing over at MTV but they may as well give him his own channel as he has already another show in the works called Starmaker which will give a male and female artist a spot on the Bad Boy roster. Auditions are being held in Hollywood on the 6th of September for anyone interested.
Hollywood heavyweight Morgan Freeman was involved in a serious car accident last night which had the Shawshank Redemption actor airlifted to a Memphis hospital. As of now there are no reports as to the condition of Freeman and the female passenger who was in the vehicle with him at the time. King of Comedy Bernie Mac is also in a serious condition according to media this weekend. The funny man is currently in a Chicago hospital being treated for pneumonia. The illness is not related to sarcodosis, which Mac was diagnosed with back in 1983. Sarcodosis is an immune system disorder which targets young adults.
The movie which has been written by Cheo Hodari Coker and Reggie Rock Blythewood has been in the works for over three years now. One of the biggest obstacles faced was filling the role of the Notorious BIG. Thousands of Biggie hopefuls turned up at the various castings throughout the country but it was only when Brooklyn rapper Gravy turned up did the production crew finally feel that they had their leading man.Sean Kingston, the young protege of JR Rotem had said in an interview last year that he was actually playing the role of Biggie, but this was denied by Fox Searchlight and the production team. It was shortly after this that Gravy was cast. Gravy is no stranger to being in the spotlight after being shot on the way to Hot 97 to do an interview with Funk Master Flex back in 2006. The rapper who attended the interview and was then taken to St Vincents Hospital in NYC was later banned from the Hot 97 studios due to the shooting.
Always one to encourage a change here and there, Snoop Dogg is looking to star in a Bollyhood movie after recording a track for the soundtrack of Singh is Kinng which will be hitting the big screen in August. The movie was directed by Anees Bazmee and was filmed primarily on location in Australia, a country which has mixed opinions of the Long Beach rapper. However Snoop hopes that his contribution to the up and coming movie will allow him present himself to India as more than a rapper. Snoop has already been cast in various movies in the US including Baby Boy, Training Day, The Wash and Soul Plane.
Thats what the word is anyhow, this story should make a very interesting theme for Kim Porter’s reality show. I am sure Kim is drowning her sorrows with her paternity lawyers and shots of patron right about now. How long did she wait for Diddy to pop the question? How many kids later? All I can say is I hope his Momma gets a new stylist before the wedding happens as she was out in the Hamptons at some Simmons affair looking horrific in this purple get up.
