Frank Ocean has a message to executives at Chipotle: “f*ck off.” A lawsuit was filed by the fast food chain against the R&B singer last week after Ocean backed out of a deal to a record a song for the company.
Ocean was paid $212,500 back in July 2013 to sing a cover of a track titled, “Pure Imagination.” Unfortunately, Ocean never delivered the track, forcing Chipotle to hire Fiona Apple to perform the cover.
Last week, Ocean’s legal team sent Chipotle a letter explaining the singer’s decision to dropout of the project:
“When Frank was asked to participate in this project, Chipotle’s representatives told him that the thrust of the campaign was to promote responsible farming. There was no Chipotle reference or logo in the initial presentation, and Chipotle told Frank that was an intentional element of the campaign … Frank was also promised that he’d have the right to approve the master and all advertising.”
Ocean’s direct response to the drama was a little less tactful as he posted an image of a cashier’s check to his Tumblr in the amount of $212,500 to a redacted company with “Fuck off” written in the Memo section in all caps.
Meghan Markle Is Headed Back To The Small Screen…Kinda
Meghan Markle may have left USA’s Suits after seven seasons, but the actress’ likeness will be making it’s way back to a TV very soon. Lifetime has announced that it’s planning a film based on Markle and her soon to be husband, Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance.
The cable network, known for it’s biopics, made the announcement on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“And before the wedding of the year takes place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Lifetime will debut a movie revealing how the stars aligned for this royal romance,” said Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley.
Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.
Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals is on hand to direct. Casting is currently underway.
No official date has been announced, but given Lifetime’s track record, fans should expect the movie to release a few days before the couples May 19 wedding. Back in 2011, Lifetime aired William & Kate: The Movie just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married on April 29.
