EXCLUSIVE: Fantasia Finds Inner “Peace”, Previews New Album



Fantasia has faced more than her fair share of media scrutiny.

Within the last few years she’s been ridiculed about dating a married man, having his child, allegedly attempting suicide and more recently she’s been under fire for “homophobic” comments on social networking and sparking a feud with Ebony magazine. Needless to say, the American Idol winner has had a rough time in the public eye. However, Tasia told HipHollywood that, “I don’t even care. I’m living life for me now. I’ve found such a peace, I’m at peace with myself. I’m happy with who I am.”

HH was exclusively inside the studio as Fantasia held a private listening session for her new album Side Effects Of Me. The Grammy-winner previewed several tracks from the upcoming project and gave some insight on the process of making the album. Throughout everything she’s encountered, Fanny testified that she still finds solace in her music. “My music is my therapy…I had to put it all in the album. There was no other place I could put it.”

Side Effects Of Me, executively produced by Harmony Samuels, is in stores April 23rd. In the meantime, check out our full interview with Fantasia, plus snippets from the album, below.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
