Published

Rap star Akon believes he may have triggered Clippers owner Donald Sterling to go on his racist rant, after being invited to a Clippers game by Sterling’s girlfriend V. Stiviano.

Akon appeared on The Insider today (April 30) and told anchor Kevin Frazier, “Ultimately, I personally think it was the visit that  started this all up,” he said, referring to his attendance at the game with video vixen Karrine Steffans. “I’mma just keep it one hundred percent. Ultimately when we got there, and then when we left, afterward there was this big argument and she called me expressing how she felt about it and I thought it would just wash away … but before you know it I guess God said it’s time to expose it.”

Akon also told Frazier when asked how he felt about Sterling calling him ” blacker than black”, that he felt sorry for him. “Being able to be clean in thought without no hatred, the feeling that can give a person, to be able to live like that, I wish he can be able to experience that one day.”

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.
