On Thursday afternoon, former Kris Kross rapper, Chris Kelly, will be laid to rest in Atlanta and HipHollywood exclusively got details behind the funeral service that is set for 2 p.m. at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church.

Names on the program include only family members and friends, and it is unsure at this point whether or not the other half of Kris Kross, Chris Smith, will be speaking. Bishop Ancrum will be delivering the eulogy during the open casket funeral.

Some of the names listed as pallbearers are industry people, but the names right now remain confidential.

On Wednesday afternoon, a public viewing was held at the Murray Brothers Funeral Home in Atlanta, and we were told that a crowd began to line up around 12:30 p.m. EST to pay their respects. The crowd remained steady throughout the afternoon.

Kelly was found unconscious in his Atlanta home last Wednesday, and was pronounced dead at 5:33 p.m. EST. The cause of death is currently pending toxicology results.

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

Published

on

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.
