As many around the world pay tribute to the late Prince by putting his mega hits on heavy rotation, HipHollywood is taking a walk down memory lane from a commercial shoot we attended back in 2009.

HH crews went behind the scenes with Prince during a commercial shoot for the singer’s three-disc album. The video was shot at the Universal Studios lot and featured one of his many proteges, Bria Valente.

In the commercial, the stylish musician, clad in all red, performed his track “Dreamer,” from the album Lotusflower.

Prince was found unresponsive on Thursday morning inside the elevator at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen. Medical crews attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the singer. Prince was pronounced deceased at 10:07 am.

Details surrounding the singer’s death are still unclear, but there are new reports suggesting that just six days ago, the 57-year-old was being treated for a drug overdose.

An autopsy is set for today.

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

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 crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard 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 it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and 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.
