Exclusive: Tyrese Talks About Forgiveness & His Ex-Wife Norma



If you follow Tyrese on his various social media accounts then you know he has an opinion on EVERYTHING and can be pretty deep at times. Such was the case when we sat down with him about his role in Black Nativity.

The film, which is based on Langston Hughes’ beloved stage play, has a great message about family and forgiveness, and Tyrese told us it definitely hit close to home, and even helped prompted a conversation between he and his motherhood about his childhood.

“It was an uncomfortable conversation,” admitted Tyrese. “But we had to have it because if you don’t speak on it and allow the adjustments to be made afterwards, then you are just feeling a certain kind of way and never speaking on it and expecting it to be different.”

So are things different now between Tyrese and his ex-wife Norma? When we followed up and asked if he has now forgiven her for dragging him into court and calling him a bad father, he smiled and said: “I’m working on it.”

Ummm … yeah … we know what that means. But then again, can you blame him?

Black Nativity is in theaters Thanksgiving Day.

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.
