Exclusive: EJ Johnson Reacts To Donald Sterling Trashing His Father, Magic Johnson

Published

The world will never forget the harsh, offensive words uttered by Donald Sterling … Including Magic Johnson’s son, EJ.

In May, Sterling sat down with Anderson Cooper to talk about being the face of one of the biggest scandals in NBA history. During the duo’s chat, Sterling also trashed his “friend,” Magic, telling Cooper: “Has he done everything he can do to help minorities?  I don’t think so. I’ll say it, he’s great, but I just don’t think he is a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”

While on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Think Like a Man Too, HipHollywood caught up with EJ to get his reaction on the horrific things Sterling said about EJ’s father.

“I really thought it was outlandish talk. There’s no room in any industry for racism. I was just more disappointed and more baffled than anything else that this is still a prevalent issue,” EJ told us exclusively.

It’s worth noting that it was an Instagram photo of Magic Johnson and V. Stiviano that was the catalyst for the taped recordings that went viral and which eventually led to Sterling being banned from the NBA for life.

Last month, it was confirmed by Donald’s wife, Shelly that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was buying the Clippers for a whopping $2 billion dollars. But now, Sterling is fighting back and has filed a lawsuit against the NBA for forcing him out as owner.

“The Team is not for Sale” and said that “from the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers,” Donald said. “I have decided that I must fight to protect my rights,” Donald Sterling said. “While my position may not be popular, I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process should not be trampled. I love the team and have dedicated 33 years of my life to the organization. I intend to fight to keep the team.”

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.
