A lot of Christians are mad that Kirk Franklin recorded a song with Kanye West for his new album The Life of Pablo. So what does Franklin think? HipHollywood caught up with the award winning producer/singer at the Grammy Awards, and he told us he’s just trying to be a light.

“You know my job on earth is just to be a light,” said Franklin who is featured on the song ‘Ultra Light Beams’. “As a Christian I’m trying to be what God wants me to be to who ever, and nobody is beyond receiving Him. Nobodies unforgivable, or unredeemable.”

West has called his latest work a “gospel album” and Franklin, along with Kelly Price and the Dream performed with him on SNL over the weekend.  Franklin told us as far as the album, he participated on just one song, and his message is quite clear.

“He asked me to be apart of this one song and it’s very clear what I represent. No profanity, or something that is outside of my faith or what I preach. I’m just here to walk out life with people, and who ever. I’m not a pastor to the stars, I ain’t trying to be all that,  My job is to just win people to God.”

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.
