So while in Paris to check out her good friend Jay-Z and his friend Kanye West, Gwyneth Paltrow may have gotten a bit comfortable in the company of her hip-hop friends.  At least that is what some people are thinking.  Jay-Z & Kanye West performed their hit song N****s in Paris for a record 11 times in a row during their concert in Paris.  Somewhere during that time Paltrow tweeted an image with some of the people onstage with her…including Terius Nash aka The-Dream.  Nash said he actually made the tweet and to excuse it because he was so lit (intoxicated).  You can read the article here with more details…what are your thoughts?

KANYE WEST’S SEVEN-SCREEN PYRAMID IN CANNES by OMA

As you may have gathered from our previous coverage, a temporary pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival was inaugurated for the screening of Kanye West’s debut short film Cruel Summer. The pavilion, with a design led by Shohei Shigematsu of OMA, is a raised pyramid containing a seven-screen cinema designed by West’s creative team, Donda.

The pavilion is designed to immerse the audience in a space defined by seven screens of cinematic proportions (17′ x 17′, 17′x30”). Shot with a custom seven-camera rig in Qatar, Cruel Summer was envisioned for this space as a constellation of projections that wrap around the audience.

Located along Palm Beach, the pyramid’s canopy is hemmed to open up a panoramic backdrop of Cannes and the Mediterranean while creating an effect of levitation above the red carpet. Filmgoers ascend into the pyramid along a continuous red carpet that widens into the 200 seat auditorium.

The pyramid was open for two days of public screenings on May 24 and 25.

BILL CLINTON POSES WITH PORN STARS, WHY DO WE CARE?

Bill Clinton was seen in a picture with porn stars that he took while in Europe and it seems everyone is in an uproar over it.  I understand people may feel certain ways about people in the porn industry but at the same time Bill Clinton is not our President right now and if some women see our former president and want to take a picture with him why is that a concern?  If he turned down a photo with them because of their occupation would that be seen as ok?  What do you guys think?
