Paparazzi Plans to Sue Kanye over LAX Scuffle

Although the LA District Attorney decided against prosecuting Kanye for his scuffle with a photographer at LAX last month, TMZ reports that the pap has retained famed attorney Gloria Allred and plans on suing the rapper over the incident. Allred is a high profile civil rights attorney who has represented a number of clients in cases against celebrities in the past, including pornstar Ginger Lee who was connected to embattled NYC Mayoral candidate Antony Weiner and Rachel Uchitel, one of Tiger Woods’ alleged mistresses. At the moment, she’s representing the nurse that has accused San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment. As TMZ notes, Allred’s involvement will undoubtedly draw even more attention to a case that, should it go to trial, will completely consume the entertainment media.

Allred has scheduled one of her legendary press conferences for 1:00 pm PST, check back for video later this afternoon.

UPDATED: footage of Allred’s press conference added below.

André 3000 Says No Plans For An Outkast Album, But to Expect a New Solo Project

andre-3000

For fans like myself expecting a new Outkast album, don’t hold your breath. In an interview with GQ, André 3000 says the possibility for a new LP from Big Boi and himself is very low. While that’s disappointing he did reveal that he’ll be working on his new solo album this year, and explains how his recent features on songs from new artists keeps him alive.

GQ: A new ‘Kast album!
Andre 3000: There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album. There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, “Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.” So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen.

GQ: What’s the new solo album going to be like?
Andre 3000: The only thing I can really say is I’m going to get back to having fun because that’s what it was all about when I started this in high school—with OutKast—those were like high school dreams. I’m 36 now, so I have grown-man dreams. This album will just be me being myself as normal.

Read 3 Stacks’ full interview with GQ after the jump…..

GQ: So you’re doing Gillette commercials now.
Andre 3000: Gillette is getting into a space where guys are now, where guys are wearing more hair on their faces. If you watch the history of Gillette, they pretty much stayed on the path of the clean-shaven guy. This is the first time in their history, in like 110 years, that they’ve ever had guys in ads with hair on their faces. It’s a changing of the times and it says a lot about Gillette; they’re kind of moving with fashion.

GQ: I dig it. And you’re resurrecting your clothing line, Benjamin Bixby?
Andre 3000: Yes! But it will just be named Bixby this time. It’s going to be real exciting, I can’t say too much about it, but I can say this year and next year there’s going to be a lot of cool things coming from me fashion-wise. Bixby is one of them. Also musically, sound-wise, and fashion. You’ll see a lot of releases.

GQ: So does that mean we can expect to hear the album we’ve all be waiting on?
Andre 3000: It depends on which album you’re talking about.

GQ: A new ‘Kast album!
Andre 3000: There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album. There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, “Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.” So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen.

GQ: What’s the new solo album going to be like?
Andre 3000: The only thing I can really say is I’m going to get back to having fun because that’s what it was all about when I started this in high school—with OutKast—those were like high school dreams. I’m 36 now, so I have grown-man dreams. This album will just be me being myself as normal.

GQ: Random question: Drake quotes your song, “Spottieottiedopaliscious,” and says, “Who else wants to fuck with Hollywood Cole.” I’ve had heated debates with Atlanta natives who say it’s “Hollywood Court” [a notoriously tough Atlanta project building.] Settle the debate once and for all!
Andre 3000: Holly Court. And it’s funny because J. Cole sampled it [playing off of the word "Cole"]. When they asked for clearance, I told him and his team that I wasn’t saying “Cole,” that I was saying “Court,” but they wanted to use it anyway. [laughs] So I was like, “Okay.”

GQ: What do you think is the biggest misconception about you?
Andre 3000: I’ve never gotten that question. This biggest misconception… that it’s easy for me, I guess, is the biggest misconception. People think you kind of ride on this wave, this non-human wave, and I think that’s kind of wrong to put that on entertainers. But I think that’s a big thing for me. People talk about Andre 3000, they talk about fashion, they talk about film, they talk about music, and it’s almost like they put you in this place, but it’s work. It’s hard work just like anything else.

GQ: At this point in your career, after the sold out shows, movies, diamond-selling records, what keeps you inspired?
Andre 3000: Creating. Creating. But it’s always been that. It’s funny, I don’t even consider myself a rapper, I don’t consider myself a designer, or even an actor. I kind of got that opportunity through the opportunities I had before. I was acting before I started rapping. These things just came. I just like creating stuff and trying to make good work, whatever it is. I don’t care if it’s designing toothbrushes. It’s just making cool stuff to leave behind, that’s all it is, it’s nothing more.

GQ: You’re a perfectionist. Would you change anything about any of your songs?
Andre 3000: I couldn’t. I really couldn’t change anything. As an artist you can sit and tinker with stuff forever. You can add and take away but I think that’s kind of the importance of having someone over you saying, “We need this, this is a deadline.” Sometimes those oppositions or those who push and pull are needed because we’ll just sit and tinker forever. There are actually songs on The Love Below that were not finished, but that’s how they are, that’s how it came out.

GQ: Like the last track, “A Life in the Day of Benjamin André (Incomplete).”
Andre 3000: Exactly! We were up like three days straight drinking Red Bull or whatever, finishing that album. I just knew I wanted to put that on there, but it wasn’t done, but it was enough.

GQ: Expectations for your next album couldn’t be higher. What are you most afraid of?
Andre 3000: The biggest fear is me thinking about it too much—and that’s why I’m just trying to catch the energy just like I’ve done before. What you all have heard before, I was not thinking, I was just going on cruise control. I was just going at it like any artist. When you look at the Wayne, when you look at the Kanye… I can tell when an artist is in the zone because they’re not thinking and that’s when you’re at your best. So I’m just hoping, at this point, I don’t let my history get in front of my future. You know what I mean?

Weekend Plans: ‘J.Edgar’, Pacquiao Vs. Marquez, UFC, ‘Modern Warfare 3′, and more

L. DiCaprio (J. Edgar Parody) – watch more funny videos

(I’m down to see J.Edgar this weekend because historical scandals are always fun…but I love this Funny or Die spoof of L.DiCaprio too. I totally forgot that Shakespeare in Love won Best Picture over Saving Private Ryan! Shameful.

Living for the weekend, I know you guys can relate. And I can’t complain too much because I’m blessed with a very flexible schedule. But whether you have a 9-5 at an office, a 6-9 with the kids, an 8-4 at school, or a 24-hour blog cycle….who doesn’t look forward to “me time”? So maybe we can start sharing the things that we want to see, eat, read, and do on a more substantive basis here on the blog?

MOVIES:
J.Edgar: Clint Eastwood directs Leonardo DiCaprio in a historical drama about the FBI’s maniacal moral-enforcer J. Edgar Hoover…but it’s not just about wiretapping adulterous politicians and violating privacy laws…there’s also Hoover’s lifelong gay bro-mance with Clyde Tolson (played by Arme Hammer aka The Winklevoss Twins).
Vote: Yes. My cousins saw J.Edgar and liked it. Other folks say it’s heavyhanded. I’d see it, but Gran Torino was so bad. Mystic River though…so good.

Jack and Jill: Adam Sandler’s Big Momma’s House.
Vote: Nyet, No, Non, Hell No!

London Blvd: This action flick is getting no promo, but I’m definitely trying to see it. And not just because of Colin Farrell. It just looks like a fun thriller that Jason Statham was too busy for. Thug gets out of jail, tries to keep his nose clean, protects Keira Knightley, gets tested by former crimeys…add hot London flavor. (Watch the trailer after the jump)
Vote: Sold!

More of my “me time” plans: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Marquez,
After the jump


(London Blvd trailer: see, this doesn’t look too bad.)
One last note about movies…I’m horrified that there’s a Korean remake of John Woo’s classic gangster flick A Better Tomorrow…produced by John Woo!! But obviously I will be adding this to my Netflix queue all the same.

TELEVISION:
Manny Pacquiao Vs. Juan Miguel Marquez (Saturday, Nov 12, 9pm, pay-per-view): Judging from the two previous bouts between these two, I’m predicting….that both men will look like hamburger at the end. *shivers*
Vote: I can’t wait to watch! It’ll be all the great boxing that we want from Pacquiao vs. Mayweather, without any of the gross posturing and disrespect.

Cain Velasquez vs Junior Dos Santos (Saturday, Nov. 12, 9pm, FOX). It’s the UFC’s first event on network TV and their start of a 7-year deal with Fox. Reportedly, the UFC is giving up million in pay-per-view money on just this one event.
Vote: Hopefully I can switch back and forth between the Pac-man vs. Marquez fight and this mixed martial arts event. I’m not a hardcore MMA fan, but I like watching man reduced to pure survival rage, lol.

Sunday Night DVR Schedule:
The Good Wife (CBS): Seriously. I know it’s on the old people network but it’s really good.
Homeland (Showtime): fantastic terrorism CIA drama.
Boardwalk Empire (HBO): super strong season so far.

GAMING:
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: The latest Call of Duty videogame broke a bunch of records, selling around 6.5 million copies in 24 hours. That’s bananas.
Vote: I’m a huge fan of the COD series and I’m ashamed to admit that I don’t even have MW3 yet. Just been too busy. But my pals love it and I definitely plan to get on it. But I keep hearing that Battlefield 3 is even better…hmm.

Related, our friends at GamerTagRadio posted Best Buy’s upcoming Black Friday videogame sales. Black Friday is a nightmare!

One of my favorite parts of the week is on Saturday and Sunday morning when I get my New York Times delivery and an overpriced hipster coffee. Always little tidbits that I learn (and occasionally some snooty things I hate, lol). So maybe I’ll try to share those little things too….kind of seems like a good tumblr. But I’d really like for it to be housed here on the blog. I’ll figure it out.

jadakiss

With his new single, “Grind” getting a lot of praise and bubbling in the streets, XXL caught up with Jadakiss. Fresh off his appearance on Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter 4, Jada reveals he’s keeping busy with upcoming appearances on albums from Drake, Young Jeezy, Estelle, and Styles P.

“I’m on [Young Jeezy’s] TM 103 joint [and] Estelle. I just did something for Bow Wow. [I’m] waiting for this joint from Drake, [Styles P] just finished his album, I’m on there. I’m just creeping through the back door on big projects. Getting that buzz up before I let the album out. It gotta feel right before I let my album out. I’m not rushing.”

While fans can also expect a fourth installment of The Champ Is Here mixtape series. Like the previous release, he wants to plan it around a major boxing match.

“I was trying to schedule that whenever the [Manny] Pacquio fight comes, try to knock a few joints out, or the next biggest fight,” he said. “But yeah, we gonna keep the joints coming. The Champ is Here is just like Rocky—it’s timeless. We gonna do the Champ series for a long time; as long as my vocals are right.”

Drake Talks Special ‘Take Care’ Release Plans & Possible Project With Rick Ross

drake

With Watch The Throne and Tha Carter IV both in stores now, the next major rap release many are anticipating is Drake’s Take Care. The sophomore album scheduled to release on the Canadian’s birthday (October 24) will drop in two ways: a 15-17 track physical edition and a special birthday edition on iTunes that’ll include more songs. Drake breaks down the release process, his thoughts on Watch The Throne, his relationship with Rick Ross and working with Stevie Wonder with EW’s Brad Wete.

On Take Care release plans:

Obviously, I can only fit so many songs on a CD. So what I’m doing is there will be a Take Care physical edition in stores that’ll hopefully have 15 to 17 songs on it. Then I know a lot of people do deluxe editions. But since October 24 is a special day for me, I got, like, a Take Care birthday edition that I’m going to put on iTunes that will have extra songs. I really want to encourage people to be excited about the album releasing. I remember how excited a lot of artists used to make me. I used to want to buy the physical copy to see the artwork. And if there were any bonus tracks, I’d go find them. I’m definitely trying to cause some of that excitement. I hope people go get the songs off the birthday edition. It’s going to be great, man. I’ve got a wide array of music this time. I’m very excited.

via Entertainment Weekly

Catch the rest of EW’s interview with Drake after the jump……

What do you think of how Jay-Z and Kanye West released Watch the Throne? They did a couple of exclusive sessions. I went to the first one. And they kept the album from leaking by going straight to iTunes.

With Jay and with Watch the Throne, I’m so glad that it came out. As artists, we all need extra motivation. And I feel like in these last 30 days, that album is going to make me go 10 times harder from just, you know, hearing all the bars and all the sounds.

Have you thought of adopting their release approach?

I think with the Jay and ‘Ye thing, that was their approach—releasing it exclusively to digital, and doing the listening parties, and getting everybody involved and excited. I think that it was a brilliant approach. Do I necessarily think that Jay or ‘Ye would do that for a solo project? No. Do I think that Jay would release exclusively to digital and, like, play all of his music off a solo album to be dissected by critics? No. I’ve discussed doing projects with is obviously Lil Wayne. And one of the people of the people I enjoy rapping with most in this business is Rozay [Rick Ross]. Me and him have talked about potentially doing something after our albums comes out. I just love making songs with him. Every time we make a song it just seems to be something I love listening to after the fact when I’m in my car.

I know you can’t confirm producers and features yet since the album isn’t done. But I have read that Stevie Wonder’s a role on the album as a writer. Am I right?

Less writing and more music. The only person I really wrote with is Abel [The Weeknd]. We have a bond with words. Getting the right words is like a euphoric feeling. There are a lot of records that we collaborated on. With Stevie it was a musical thing. I had a song that’s very powerful, it’s called “Doing It Wrong,” and Stevie boosted it to another level. 40 produced it, but Stevie has a solo on it that he plays. It’s a great piece of music.

Specifically, what did he bring to the record?

He brought life to it. I was only trying to use extremely strong R&B songs on this album if I’m going to use R&B at all. Before I’d have scattered interludes and songs where I’m experimenting with things. Here I wanted to get back to “Brand New,” “Bria’s Interlude” days. It’s going to be really tight writing and s— that’s sexy as f—. That’s my thing. I’m going to do the type of R&B I’m good at. With Stevie it’s hard for me to explain. It’s an incredible thing I witnessed that night. He heard a song that he saw some potential in and he added some key pieces that made it come to life. I’ve never played a song for people and they’ve cried and gone into their own private zone in their mind where they’re really thinking about some situations that hit home. And this song has done that for me. I’ve never seen that before. I’ve heard stories where it’s like “So and so cried when they heard this.” And I’d be like, “Yeah, okay, cool.” [Laughs] But I’ve seen people tear up listening to this song that me and Stevie did. Other than that, I just played him music for approval. That’s always reassuring, to be able to play Stevie Wonder music and have him say that it’s incredible. I think me and Stevie immediately formed a relationship where he wants to see me do well. He’s expressed to me adamantly that he wants to see me succeed. He wants to see me on the moon. It’s boosted my confidence.

That should be the tag of the album: “Stevie liked it.”

[Laughs] I mean, he heard a few things. I leave it to guys like you to approve the rap stuff. But from a singing and melody standpoint, he was proud of what 40 and me had crafted at that time. When he came to the studio to do his parts on “Doing It Wrong,” a few hours after, I made “Marvin’s Room.” It’s a great story, this album is.

You’ve leaked a few “singles” this summer. What of the bunch is actually on Take Care?

“Headlines” and “Marvin’s Room” are on the album. But “Dreams Money Can Buy” and “Trust Issues,” those joints are on that birthday edition. That birthday edition might be a stupid amount of songs. I’m just forewarning everybody. [Laughs] I want to service people a lot of music to get you through fall, winter, spring, and into the next summer. I want this music to last. That’s not to say I won’t be working on new things. But I just want to create something that has a long shelf life than the average album these days.
