Lady Gaga and Prince are writing new songs for director Baz Luhrmann’s version of The Great Gatsby, according to one of his stars. Actress Adelaide Clemens let it slip in a recent interview that the two pop superstars have “approached” the moviemaker with a view to supply songs for the soundtrack of the film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.
She tells IndieWire.com, “They have some new music that’s going to be added to the film. Some pretty huge artists have approached Baz and are writing songs for the film, and I don’t think Warner Bros. are going to turn down Prince and Lady Gaga knocking down your door… I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that.”
Luhrmann has a little time to play with if he is to revamp his soundtrack – The Great Gatsby’s Christmas Day release has been pushed back by six months. The original trailer for the film, which was released earlier this year, featured Jay-Z and Kanye West’s No Church In The Wild.
Michael Jackson’s legacy has been cemented.
Using their father’s shoes, and a sequined glove, the King of Pop’s three children,Prince, Blanket, and Paris, immortalized their late father in front of Graumans Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
Prince told the crowd that this was his dad’s lifetime achievement award and that this is what he strived to get.
The touching ceremony brought out Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars including Justin Bieber, who sang his version of Michael’s Rockin’ Robin.
The matriarch of the famous musical family Katherine Jackson spoke to fans saying that it was a very good celebration and that if Michael were here he would agree.
Michael may have left too soon, but thankfully his legacy will last forever.
A representative for Prince has confirmed the pop superstar has avoided foreclosure on his Minnesota estate by paying off his mortgage bill in full.
The Purple Rain hitmaker owns 20 acres of land in Chanhassen, Minnesota, where one of his many homes once stood before it was torn down in 2005.
The land reportedly fell into foreclosure after the star allegedly failed to keep up with mortgage payments and the local Carver County Sheriff’s Office scheduled an auction to sell it off to pay the alleged $368,000 mortgage bill, according to Minneapolis’ StarTribune. A foreclosure notice is said to have been posted in a local newspaper.
But a representative for Prince has now confirmed steps have been taken to resolve the situation, telling the StarTribune a “payment has been made” to the bank for the full amount “about four or five days ago”.
