Lil Wayne And Paris Hilton Talk Music, Paparazzi And Prison | Get The Latest Hip Hop News, Rap News & Hip Hop Album Sales | HipHop DX

Interview magazine has a tradition of letting celebrities interview each other with mixed results. Pharrell Williams once interviewed the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and more recently, Kanye West interviewed Rihanna for the November, 2010 issue. For the current April issue, Dimitri Ehrlich oversaw Paris Hilton as she posed a series of questions to Lil Wayne.The billionaire heiress opened up the interview by asking Wayne about his upbringing and his motivation for becoming a rapper before finding what she deemed more common ground.“I had to do 24 nights in solitary,” Hilton told Lil Wayne, when the subject of prison was brought up. “Oh, so you know how it is,” Wayne replied. And, in what may have been his most entertaining exchange since Wayne told Katie Couric, “I’m a gangsta, Miss Katie,” Hilton replied, “Yeah, I know how it is.”Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail in 2007 due to an alcohol-related reckless driving case used incarceration as common ground. Wayne spent nine months in Rikers Island in 2010 for a weapons possession charge. The pair also covered topics of Paparazzi and tabloids, with both stars being amused by rumors of their own deaths.“The on

Will Ferrell, Jon Stewart Crack Jokes At The Comedy Awards – MTV Movie News| MTV

If there were an awards show to celebrate the very best in comedy, you’d probably want Will Ferrell and Adam McKay there on the red carpet riffing about how “The Other Guys” was snubbed at the Oscars and now finally their genius is being recognized.

“I was with Will during the Academy Awards, and he slowly got drunker and said, ‘What about my kind?’ ” you’d want McKay to say.

“I kept saying, ‘It has to be nominated! It has to be on there!’ ” Ferrell would answer.

“And I said, ‘Will, we know ahead of time if it’s going to be nominated,” McKay would respond.

And Ferrell would shoot back, “‘No, tonight’s going to special! They’re going to announce a secret nomination.’ “

Here’s the funny thing: There is such an awards show — Comedy Central held the first annual Comedy Awards on Saturday night — and that exchange is exactly how Ferrell and McKay began a red-carpet chat with MTV News. And as other celebs joined them on the carpet — Jon Stewart, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Andy Samberg, Tracy Morgan — they picked up on Ferrell and McKay’s theme: Does comedy need an awards show, or is laughter all the reward comedians need?

“It’s all about winning things!” Andy Richter declared. “That’s the reason we all got into

When several solo artists announce they’re forming a supergroup you have to take it with a grain of salt. So few of these projects ever get past one or two songs. Random Axe, a group consisting of Black Milk, Sean Price and Guilty Simpson, looked to be one of those groups.

In late 2008 Black Milk told DX the trio would drop in the album in early 2009, and two years later the album still isn’t out. Progress was made however, in mid 2009 the group signed with Duck Down Records. Now it looks like fans will be treated to the album soon. Black Milk took to Twitter yesterday and announced the album was complete and mastered.

‘Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules’ Knocks Out ‘Sucker Punch’ At Box Office – MTV Movie News| MTV

 

 

In the weekend battle of the flashy, hyper-stylized action flick versus the kid-movie-franchise sequel, it turned out that Rodrick did, in fact, rule. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules” bested “Sucker Punch” at the box office to become the #1 movie in the United States with a $22.4 million debut.

Based on the second installment of the kid-friendly book series, “Wimpy Kid” bested the debut of its predecessor, which took in $21.8 million when it was released around this same time last year. All figures are according to studio estimates.

The $19 million opening of “Sucker Punch,” meanwhile, was less than the debuts of director Zack Snyder’s previous movies “300,” “Watchmen” or “Dawn of the Dead.” While the latter three films were based on preexisting sources, “Sucker Punch,” a loud music-driven action fantasy about a group of girls in a mental institution who lead dream-world lives as action heroines, was Snyder’s first wholly original concept. A mere 22 percent of critics reviewed it positively, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

News that the 45-year-old director has cast Amy Adams as Lois Lane in his forthcoming superhero reboot “Superman: Man of Steel” overshadowed talk of “Sucker Punch” across Twitter and film blogs on Sunday.

Last week’s #1 movie, “Limitless,” brought in another $15.2 million, for a domestic total of $41.3 million. With an estimated production budget of $27 million, the movie’s numbers are great news for Bradley Cooper, who chose the flick as his first real starring vehicle since finding fame.

 

The modest success of “The Lincoln Lawyer” is great news of a different kind for Matthew McConaughey. It’s his best-reviewed film in years. Telling the story of a conflicted lawyer working cases from his car, the movie has reminded critics that the sometimes-ridiculed leading man does have real talent. “The Lincoln Lawyer” brought in $11 million to land at #4, with a $29 million total.

 

Johnny Depp’s animated “Rango” was one of two movies to cross the $100 million mark over the weekend. The movie landed in fifth place with a $9.8 million take, for a $106.4 million total. Meanwhile, “Just Go With It” became the 12th Adam Sandler movie to gross more than $100 million domestically. Although the romantic comedy is no longer in the top 10 at the box office, it has earned a total of $100.3 million.

 

Sci-fi action flick “Battle: Los Angeles” was #6 with $7.6 million, for a $72.6 million total. The loving sci-fi homage “Paul” dropped roughly 45 percent in its second weekend of release, earning $7.5 million to land at #7 while upping its total earnings to $24.6 million. The Nick Frost/ Simon Pegg comedy cost about $40 million to make. “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke’s “Red Riding Hood” was #8 with $4.3 million, for a $32.5 million total. Matt Damon’s “The Adjustment Bureau” was #9 with $4.2 million, for a $54.9 million total.

 

International tickets, after-market sales and a built-in diehard fanbase will probably save “Paul” from being remembered as a failure, but the weekend’s #10 movie, which shares an alien theme, likely won’t escape that fate. The animated “Mars Needs Moms” made $2.2 million, bringing its total take to $19.2 million against an estimated $150 million production budget.

 

Next weekend’s new releases include “Moon” director Duncan Jones’ “Source Code,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga; the Easter-themed kid’s movie “Hop,” featuring the voice of Russell Brand; the haunted-house flick “Insidious”; and the action/comedy “Super,” with Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler and Kevin Bacon.
