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.
