Andre 3000 Might Play Jimi Hendrix In New Biopic

Rumors about a long-talked-about Jimi Hendrix biopic are getting a boost from an unlikely source. “Captain America” star Hayley Atwell revealed in an interview with “Esquire” magazine that her next role could “possibly” be a film about the iconic guitarist starring Andre 3000. The OutKast rapper, whose real name is Andre Benjamin, has been campaigning for the Hendrix project since 2004. Seven years ago, he told the New York newspaper he was excited to play both Jimi’s “wild” onstage persona as well as his more calm, offstage demeanor. However, the film apparently remains in limbo.

Gucci Mane Released From Jail

Gucci Mane is once again a free man. Gucci was released from Fulton County Jail early last Friday morning. Reports that Gucci was due to be released began popping up at the beginning of the month. However, a few “procedural holdups” prevented the emcee from getting out. The rapper got a little bit of good news last Thursday when he found out the Georgia Department of Corrections was removing their hold on him, meaning he wouldn’t be transferred to a Georgia prison when he was released from jail. Gucci hit up the club with his boy Waka Flocka as party promoting CEO Korey Felder and his Hittsquad Empire hosted Gucci’s “Welcome Home” Event at Life Nightclub in Atlanta. With the recent release of his new mixtape Writings on the Wall 2, seems like Gucci Mane has a lot to celebrate. READ MORE

The Smith family (minus mama Jada Pinkett Smith and big brother Tre Smith) were seen having a family day out on the sandy beaches of Hawaii. It is hard to believe Will is 42, as he looks in almost as good of shape as he did in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. 10-year-old Willow Smith was also spotted on the beach hanging out with her dad Will Smith and older brother Jaden Smith.

Will was enjoying a well-earned break after he finished filming for the latest part of the Men In Black series this month. He had been in New York since February recording scenes for the franchise’s third movie along with fellow MIB veteran Tommy Lee Jones.

Movie insiders are expecting it to be a huge hit when it is released next year. And there was more good for fans Smith this month, as Transformers director Michael Bay said he wants to direct another entry to the Bad Boys series.

He said:

‘We talk about Bad Boys 3. It’s hard to get our schedules together but it’s great working with those guys.’

The film will team Will  up again with  Martin Lawrence as  Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett.

Pacman Jones Arrested Again

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with two misdemeanors after an incident at a downtown bar.

Bow Wow’s Baby Mama Is Pissed With Him!

While Bow Wow’s newest letter to his fans appears to be a very heartfelt one, his baby mama Joie Chavis is calling him out. In his letter he talks about his love for his newborn Shai Moss saying that “Sometimes i tear up cuz i just cant believe it brotha be emotional ”. However, video girl Joie Chavis is stating otherwise. According to her, Bow Wow was nowhere to be found when she was getting a C-Section to birth their daughter. In fact, he didn’t even show up until 6 days after their daughter’s birth. In retaliation, she left his name off of the birth certificate. Maybe this is the drama Bow Wow was talking about when he stated in his letter: READ MORE
