Jay-Z, The Bullitts to Do Soundtrack for the Great Gatsby
Illuminati member Jay-Z is going to provide the music for the new Leonardo DiCaprio flick, The Great Gatsby (via Billboard). The announcement was made by Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts on Twitter, noting “Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!” It might be too dope for words, but I just put words to it, so there. The movie will be out on May 10 – no word on other contributors.
Bobby Womack Is Suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease
68 year old singer Bobby Womack has admitted that he has early stages of Alzheimer’s (via NME). Womack said “The doctor says there are signs of Alzheimer’s. It’s not bad yet but will get worse. How can I not remember songs I wrote? It’s frustrating. I don’t feel together yet. Negative things come in my mind and it’s hard for me to remember sometimes.”
Not to make light of the disease, but Bobby – I forgot to put on pants yesterday. It happens to the best of us. Womack recently beat colon cancer in 2012 – the man is a fighter! I can’t even beat the common cold I’ve had all week.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian to Help Populate the Earth with More Idiots
As you might have heard in the gossip rags, rapper Kanye West and Kim ‘why am I famous’ Kardashian are with child. While playing a series of bizarre shows in Atlantic City – Kanye wore a Yeti mask and a diamond-encrusted mask on one night – Kanye West announced mid-song that Kim is his baby mama and that they are having a child. This is Kim Kardashian who was married for 2 full moons to a man, and is not divorced yet, but is now with child. It sounds like that small town couple you know, but nope, its multi-millionaires in America. If it’s a boy, you’d better believe it’ll be hooking up with Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy.
