Exclusive: Amanda Bynes Accused Of Blowing Off Wyclef Jean



Music may still be a priority for Amanda Bynes, but she’s going to have to look for a new label to sign her.

The 27-year-old was in the process of finalizing a recording contract with Chinga Chang Records, a small East-Coast label, but CEO of Dan Herman tells Hip Hollywood exclusively that the company has decided to pull the plug on the deal.

The label initially offered Bynes a deal after she began tweeting about wanting to put out a rap album. Herman confirms that Bynes approved his proposal, so he began recruiting big time producers such as DJ Premier and Wyclef Jean to work on the album. Herman tells HH the reason he called it quits with the retired actress is because Bynes stood Wyclef up, not once, but two separate times.

“She stood him up at the first meeting I arranged on Monday at Daddys House, Sean Combs recording studio in the city. I smoothed things over with Wyclef, and had him still on board to possibly work with her, but only under the conditions that she showed respect to him. She said she would and would fix the situation, but then she ignored him again.”

Herman says after Bynes flaked a second time, he contacted his lawyers and had them pull the deal. Shortly after Amanda took to Twitter to deny any claims the deal had ever even existed.

“@AmandaBynes I never spoke to anyone at Chinga Chang Records. I got an offer for a bigger record deal that I’m taking as soon as I get my surgeries!”

Herman says Bynes, who is currently undergoing surgies to remove a “webbing” between her eyes, “is definitely schizophrenic or bi-polar.”

A rep for Bynes refused to comment, saying “Amanda is not doing interviews right now.”

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.
