Exclusive: How Kanye Takes Care of Uncle Charlie

Published

Kanye West may have opted not to use Charlie Wilson in the music video for Bound 2, but he still loves his uncle Charlie.

HipHollywood recently caught up with the legendary singer on the red carpet for The 56th Annual Grammy Awards to find out what it’s like working with West and found out Yeezy takes good care of him for adding vocals to his tracks.

“I’m happy that he’s happy to work with me,” said Wilson, whose also worked with Pharrell, Snoop Dogg and R. Kelly. “We get along really great in the studio. Its wonderful, wherever he is in the world he flies me in, Paris, Milan, wherever he is to do the vocals and we just have a good time.”

Wilson will be heading back to the studio to record a new album of his own this year. He recently told Billboard that he may even record his own version of Bound 2. “(West) said to me, ‘If I was you I would do an R&B version of (‘Bound 2’), so I’m thinking about it. I wouldn’t have to do too much with the verses, and the beat’s incredible. It’s an urban hit for sure.”

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

Published

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.
