Sometimes, creative decisions that seem great within someone's mind don't always translate well when they're thrust upon the rest of the world. This week, it's one probable artistic disaster after another: James Franco writing about Lana Del Rey, Backstreet Boys entering the world of filmmaking, George Lucas turning down Michael Jackson... Thank goodness for great decisions by NWA and Ryan Adams...
Here are the quotes of the week:
"We were taken backstage and we met Michael... George introduced me as 'Jar Jar' and... Michael was like, "Oh. OK." ...After Michael had driven off, we all go back up to a big afterparty. I'm having a drink with George and I said, 'Why did you introduce me as Jar Jar?' He said, 'Well, Michael wanted to do the part but he wanted to do it in prosthetics and makeup like 'Thriller.'' George wanted to do it in CGI."
Would Michael Jackson have made Jar Jar Binks less fucking terrible? We'll never know, because George Lucas cast Ahmed Best instead. Poor fucker.
"It's a zombie Western futuristic horror movie. My character is still being worked out right now, but I'm a good guy that's going to help save the day."
Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys is writing a movie that will star his band, plus members of ’NSync, that we know definitely won't be Justin Timberlake.
