B.o.B and André 3000′s new music video ”Play the Guitar” brought me back to when I was six years old, playing with my favourite toy ever, Lite-Brite.
The song was originally supposed to appear on B.o.B’s sophomore LP Strange Clouds, but it never made the cut. We couldn’t be more thrilled that we finally got our hands on it, along with a music video that uses a creative range of pixelated black and white dots. It’s pretty trippy and I would’ve loved to see their faces, but I can’t complain.
If you haven’t already heard, André 3000 will be playing Jimi Hendrix in a bio-pic All is By My Side.
With the success of movies such as My Week With Marilyn, it is no surprise that biopic rumours are spreading fast in Hollywood. But which ones are true and which ones are false? It’s time to play my favorite game Fact or Fiction!
1) Harry Styles to star in a flick about Mick Jagger?
Though Harry’s publicist hasn’t confirmed whether he’ll be staring in this flick it has been confirmed that a film about Mick Jagger is in the works. It’ll be called Exile On Main St. in honour of the Rolling stones’ tenth album. The movie will revolve around the Rolling Stones’ frontman and guitarist Keith Richards and will be produced by Richard Branson.
2) Taylor Swift stars in a movie about Joni Mitchell?
The rumours are true! Taylor Swift has been in talks with Sony for months but still hasn’t been officially ask to play the role. I guess only time will tell. The movie will be based on Sheila Weller’s book Girls Like Us, a biography of Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Carly Simon. The crew will consist of Katie Jacobs’s (director), John Sayles (scriptwriter) and and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (producer). Along with Taylor, Alison Pill auditioned to play King. Though the Sony pic hasn’t received the green light yet, it’s set to start production later this year.
3) Zooey Deschanel as Loretta Lynn?
This is a fact! However, it’s not a movie. Zooey Deschanel will be playing Loretta Lynn in a new musical stage show based on the country star’s life story. The 80-year-old singer has been working on a Broadway show based on her 1976 autobiography Coal Miner’s Daughter for a while now. Lynn specifically chose Deschanel as the star and her warm feelings are mutual as Deschanel called Lynn her hero.
4) Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix? Read more…
If you ever wondered what a cartoon hangover looks like, this video should answer any questions you may have had. In what looks like a Pixar interpretation of a nightmare, the people at Feel Good Inc have done a fantastic job giving this song some visuals.
DoYaThing features Andre 3000 and for months we’ve been wondering what he would look like after getting the Gorillaz animation treatment. Sadly, for the limited time his character appears in this video, he is wearing a mask.
As creepy as this video seems at times, it’s also very funny. It looks like the castaways from a Disney movie dropped out of college and started a band. DoYaThing is a great video to sooth your aching head the next time you wakeup after a week-long bender.
Earlier this week Gorillaz, Andre 3000 and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy released a radio edit of their new song “DoYaThing.” The track is an aggressive pop song that features the lyric “I’m the shit!” over and over. If that wasn’t enough for you, the trio released a new 13-minute long version for you to indulge in.
Make sure to hang around to the end to hear the epic downbeat “serious side” of the song.
“DoYaThing” is sponsored by Converse shoes and the company has kindly offered to make the song available for FREE today (Friday), so if you like it you better act fast.
In an interview with The Montreality Show, Mac Miller says his dream collaboration is Andre 3000.
“Definitely Andre 3000. That’s one of my favorite rappers ever. I don’t know, if I could work with him it would be crazy,” said Miller when asked who he’d like to work with. “I don’t really wanna put too much into who I work with because if people don’t wanna work with me or believe in what I’m doing then it’s cool…I mean I already have some tracks in with some legends in the game so I’ve already done things that I never believed I would do before.”
OUTKAST star ANDRE 3000 is set to play SAMMY DAVIS JR. in a new biopic documenting the entertainer’s controversial romance with KIM NOVAK.
The film, entitled Sammy and Kim, will focus on the interracial relationship between Davis and the Caucasian actress, which caused controversy in the 1950s at a time when the African-American Civil Rights Movement was in beginning to take place.
Their affair threatened to put an end to both Davis and Novak’s careers, and the couple were reportedly forced to split after the actress’ bosses at Columbia Studios called the singer and pressured him into finishing the affair.
Andre 3000′s take on Davis for the silver screen is not the only movie about the star in the works – Denzel Washington is working on In Black and White, and another two films, named Yes, I Can, after Davis’ autobiography of the same name, are also planned.
