Kanye West Asserts that Quentin Tarantino Appropriated His Django Unchained Plot Idea

Published

on

Kanye West claims that he was the one who originally presented the idea for Django Unchained to director Quentin Tarantino as a music video for one of his songs.

What an Assertion

This week, the rapper made an appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored. Morgan had earlier in the week hinted that the conversation would be “exceptional” and “fiery.”

The two talked about a wide range of topics, including West’s past divisive remarks regarding the Jewish community and his former relationship with reality star Kim Kardashian.

But when West brought up a picture by Quentin Tarantino, who he believes stole the idea from him, the debate suddenly took a surprising turn.

The idea for the 2012 western film Django Unchained, which follows a former slave (Jamie Foxx) as he teams up with a bounty hunter to rescue his wife, actually arose from West’s concept for the 2005 music video for the smash song “Gold Digger,” which also has Foxx as a featured singer.

“Tarantino can make a movie about slavery where—actually, he and Jamie [Foxx] got the idea from me, since the idea for Django I proposed to them as the video for ‘Gold Digger,'” West said to Morgan.

Then Tarantino made it into a movie.”

Although neither Tarantino nor Foxx have publicly refuted Ye’s claims, LADbible has contacted their publicists for additional information.

West addressed his anti-Semitic remarks from earlier in the conversation about “doing death con 3 on Jewish people,” which led to his Twitter ban.

In addition, he was banned from Instagram for saying: “Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me.”

While West first defended his statements by saying he was “proud to have crossed the line” and felt “glad” to be removed from the social media platforms, he now acknowledges they were racist.

West first responded, “No, absolutely not. Absolutely not. Absolutely not,” when Morgan questioned whether he regretted what he had said.

But when the host pressed him, saying that his anti-Semitic remarks were “as racist as whatever you say you’ve lived through,” West said that he did believe his remarks to be racist.

“Yes, I fought fire with fire, I’m not here to get hosed down, it’s a different type of freedom warrior,” he said. “Yeah definitely, that’s why I said it.

Later on in the conversation, West expressed regret for the “pain and uncertainty” his remarks had brought about.

You can be sure I’ll apologize for the harm and misunderstanding my usage of the term “defcon” generated in the people, he said.

“I feel that I injured and confused people, and I’m sorry for the families of those people who had nothing to do with the pain that I had experienced. I utilized my platform where you can damage people,” the speaker said.

Black Adam to Lose a Lot After Its Release

Published

on

Although Dwayne Johnson’s blockbuster Black Adam may have challenged the DCEU’s system of power, it failed to perform well at the box office. According to Variety, the most recent DC blockbuster has only made $387 million globally since it opened in theaters on October 21.

News by the Numbers

Black Adam could lose between $50 and $100 million at the box office due to a $195 million production cost, an estimated $80 to $100 million marketing expense, and the fact that movie theaters keep about half the ticket sale revenues.

Still Making It

Variety said that Black Adam will eventually break even at $600 million, while Warner Bros. sources claim that the real figure is $425 million. Black Adam had a strong opening weekend, grossing $140 million worldwide. Even though the movie’s second weekend experienced a significant 59% fall, it managed to maintain its box office dominance.

Not only Black Adam has recently had trouble earning money at the box office. Strange World, a significant animated film from Disney, had a poor $12 million opening weekend and then experienced a 60% decrease to $4.9 million. Not the best times for these movies, but hopefully they would do better later on.

To Play “Elden Ring” with Him for 40 Hours, a Gamer Pays a Cam Girl $20,000

Published

The video game Elden Ring is fantastic and offers a unique single-player experience, but it’s also a riot when played with others.

More fun with Friends

The new open-world adventure from FromSoftware is fairly similar to its predecessors in that you can call in friends (or complete strangers) to explore and aid you against some of the more difficult bosses.

If you’re feeling extremely vicious, you can even invade the worlds of other gamers and bring them untold suffering.

However, not everyone has companions who are prepared to invest the time necessary to truly master a game like Elden Ring. What should a daring explorer do in such a circumstance? Apparently, you can pay a cam girl $20,000 for a 40-hour encounter.

Using the website CamSoda, 31-year-old Chris from New Jersey claims to have paid adult model Charley Hart $20,160 (or roughly £15,200) to play Elden Ring with him for one extended session.

According to Chris, “I typically play campaigns by myself in my boxer briefs and overdose on carbs while consuming energy drinks.” We became fairly close and connected on a deeper level, so it was lovely to have Charley traveling with me through The Lands Between.

I truly loved her company, and I hope to stream with her again when the next big game is released, he continued.

Chris claims that Charley and he completed the game in 40 hours. Even though it’s not impossible, it’s still quite an accomplishment. Chris was reportedly turned off by it and never wanted to do anything similar again.

It was intense, he acknowledged. “I was hellbent on finishing the game, but if I ever play a full campaign, I’m going to split it up next time.”

According to Charley, some cam ladies reported an increase in requests to game during the pandemic, with some customers perhaps simply preferring the firm under lockdown.

“I’ve joined clients for longer periods of time while they game, prepare dinner, eat dinner, etc. It’s like long-form camming,” she added. “I’m not simply a cam girl who acts for, say, 7 minutes.”

“I didn’t fully realize how long 40 consecutive hours is. It takes a lot of stamina, in more ways than one. But Chris and I really hit it off at the beginning, and it was fun,” the participant said.

This Latest Netflix Movie Manages to Grab a Perfect Score on Rotten Tomatoes

Published

on

Rotten Tomatoes gave Netflix’s most recent creature movie a perfect score, praising it for its moralistic narrative, entertaining special effects, and inventive takes on Swedish mythology.

An Interesting Plot

The protagonist of the tale is the paleontologist Nora Tidemman, who grew up hearing tales from Swedish mythology from her father. Nora joins forces with an academic, a soldier, and a government advisor to investigate a string of fatalities on a hillside and learn what is going on in Dovre. The mountain then begins to move, and the troll that lives there wreaks havoc on the people who are endangering its home.

Great Results

Troll has received numerous comparisons to Godzilla in reviews, and it formerly had a perfect critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. The score has since dropped to 85%, but that’s still a pretty remarkable performance for a movie in 2022, knowing that there are a lot of good movies out there.
