Exclusive: K. Michelle Talks Jay-Z Sample on “V.S.O.P”



If you found yourself bobbing your head and feeling a bit nostalgic listening to K. Michelle’s new single “V.S.O.P”, that’s probably because it samples a track you’ve definitely heard before: Jay-Z’s “December 4th” off his The Black Album.

HipHollywood caught up with K.Michelle at the BET Awards to talk about the sample and the song that’s got folks hype about her debut album, Rebellious Soul. “It rocks,” said K. Michelle about the songs sample. “I wanted to do something else.”

After years singing about her ill-fated relationship with ex-Memphitz Wright, K is singing about being in love on “V.S.O.P.” “My life isn’t based on crying about a man,” the reality star explained. “So it’s just about you have a boo thang that you like, that’s what it’s about.”

And if you’re wondering if K. Michelle has had a change of heart and will return for another season of LAHH: Atlanta, think again. The reality star tells us she’s definitely leaving the show behind and focusing 100 percent on her music career.

Rebellious Soul is in stores August 13th. In the meantime if you haven’t seen the video for “V.S.O.P” check it out 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.
