Man, Sean “Diddy” Combs is REALLY excited about his upcoming commencement speech at Howard University! The music mogul just post a video on Instagram from his alma mater’s campus and to say he’s hype is an understatement.

Watch THIS!!! LIVE from Howard University campus. At the Quad, my favorite building when I was going here. 2mrrw I officially become Dr. Combs!!! Lets Go!!! It’s YOUR day,” Combs stated on IG.

While Diddy may be enthusiastic about the impending speech, many folks were up in arms about the “Dirty Money” rapper delving out advice at the school he didn’t even bother to graduate from. In case you didn’t know, Sean attended Howard for a very short period of time before dropping out and becoming a multi-millionaire.

HipHollywood caught up with Laz Alonso who also attended HU, but unlike Diddy, he actually graduated from the Historically Black University. So, what does the Avatar actor think of Howard honoring Puff Daddy with a doctorate and asking him to do the commencement speech? Take a look at the interview below to find out…you may be surprised be his thoughts!

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

Published

on

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.
