Are they friends? Kanye West and Jessica Alba dine at fancy Paris restaurant at same time… while Kim Kardashian is back in LA

The music supervisor is well-known for having an eclectic musical palette, choosing striking tunes, in particular, for Wes Anderson’s films. “It was our intent at the outset to really try to create a cohesive soundtrack where the film music and the songs kind of all wove together and made sense as a whole,” he said. In fitting with the jagged, dystopian landscape of future Chicago, the artists Poster chose are of the EDM and rap persuasion. There’s Ellie Goulding , who Poster said is Tris’ inner voice, M83 , Zedd , Skrillex the list goes on. Perhaps most intriguing, Tame Impala and Kendrick Lamar came together on one track, a choice that Poster said represents the collision of worlds that’s intrinsic to “Divergent”: the real world decaying into the future. “I think that one of the challenges for a movie like this is that it’s set in the future and so you sort of have to figure out, ‘OK, what might music in the future sound like?'” Poster said.

Kanye West — I Didn’t Steal Your Dad’s Music

The 36-year-old rapper is firing back at a lawsuit that the family of David Pryor filed last year accusing him of stealing music for his hit Gold Digger, claiming he did not sample from Thunder & Lightnings Bumpin Bus Stop. Read the Documents Pryors family was seeking damages for the illegal use of the song and asked a judge to stop West from selling his hit single. But in the court documents obtained by Radar, West claims he didnt sample Pryors song and argues that the phrase, Get down girl, get down, get down is not something that can be more.. copyrighted. Kim Kardashian s baby daddy also points to the statute of limitations, which prevents the family from filing the lawsuit even if he didsample from Bumpin Bus Stop because it caused no harm to Pryor. West is demanding the lawsuit be thrown out.
