It is no secret that actor/writer/photographer/director/and-a-hundred-other-things James Franco is a friend and fan of Ultraviolence singer Lana Del Rey. And to express that strong fandom, Franco has written a book about Lana, titled “Flip-Side: Real And Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey”. The cover for the upcoming 100-page book, which was co-written by David Shields, shows James Franco, with Lana, her sister (Chuck Grant), and director Klaus Biesenbach, but you’ll have to wait awhile untill you can get one for yourself. The book hits shelves on March 15, 2016.
You may know him from his feud with Riff Raff, where Jody Highroller accused him of copying his style, you also may know him because many think he looks like a ghetto James Franco. But no matter how you were first introduced to Florida rapper Alien, he just scored a huge name for his upcoming album Hangin’ With Da Dopeboys, named after his lead single of the same name.
According to sources, Kanye West will executively produce Alien’s forthcoming LP. “Seth Rogen told me you have to check out this guy Alien,” said Kanye. “Ever since then, it was Bound 2 happen.” Kanye is also set to provide a couple verses to the album, now joining ‘Freaks and Geeks’ rapper Childish Gambino on the LP. While we don’t normally condone actors who try rapping, Gambino should still be a good fit. You can expect Alien’s highly anticipated project sometime this year, and if you’re headed down to Florida anytime soon, be sure to catch one his performances on your Spring Break.
