Iyanla Vanzant has interviewed dozens of celebrities who have had personal woes play out publicly. But the Fix My Life host’s recent interview with Karrueche Tran about her troubled relationship with Chris Brown, seemed to garner a large amount of attention.

“Karrueche was a demonstration of so many young women, just like me, who make mistakes in relationships,” Vanzant told HipHollywood while at the premiere of BEING. “I really just wanted to talk to her about some of the pit falls because nobody has done that publicly. We look back and we say ‘this happened’ and ‘that happened,’ but nobody has asked, ‘what did you do? What did you do, how did you participate that this is the story you’re telling today?'”

And although Vanzant’s motive was to help the fashion designer, Tran revealed last week while on Big Boy’s morning show that she actually felt uncomfortable during the taping. “I think she’s great at what she does, she’s very inspirational and motivational, but I think her approach is a little different than how other people interview … Honestly it was a little uncomfortable the way the interview was going and there was a little bit of a break during the interview.”

Tran and Brown broke up back in March after news surfaced that he fathered a 9-month-old baby girl.


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



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.
