JIM CHAPMAN x CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Ahead of the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, Jim Chapman, Writer and Content Creator, celebrates the upcoming A-list event with exclusive insight into the most memorable moments from previous years, and what to expect from this year’s festival.

 

Jim gives us the lowdown on Cannes, one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.  He recalls back in 2011, when Kanye West performed an exclusive after party set and invited Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx onstage for an impromptu performance of his hit single, ‘Gold Digger’.

 

Jim also recounts his untold insight from the 2015 festival when Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and director Denis Villeneuve all wore high heels to the premiere of Sicario, as a demonstration against an antiquated dress code requiring women to wear heels to all evening gala premieres. Famously,  Julia Roberts appeared barefoot on the red carpet as an act of fashion rebellion against the same rule too.

 

As Cannes is one of the most anticipated red carpet events of the awards calendar,  Jim is expecting to see Hollywood star, Cate Blanchett pull out all the stops, as this year,  as she has been named President of the Jury, alongside other actresses including Kristen Stewart and Léa Seydoux to name but a few.

 

Jim also discusses the stir caused by organizers who have banned Netflix productions being considered for the Palme D’Or and Netflix’s decision to withdraw their title from the festival.

CARDI B REVEALS!!

It’s all about Cardi B in Fuse’s latest episode of Fuse’s Weekly News Rap hosted by Brooklyn emcee Cryssy Bandz.

After finally unleashing her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, the”Bodak Yellow” performer revealed some exciting, life-changing personal news while also dominating music charts and television ratings.

“She dropped a single, and I cannot stop my head from bopping. Her album went gold within a few hours of it dropping,” Bandz raps. “Even Oprah had to take a listen. She probably bumping ‘Bodak Yellow’ cooking in the kitchen. You got an icon bumping to your music, then you killing. Went from Instagram to Love & Hip Hop, now on the billboards winning.”

Along with co-hosting Saturday Night Live, during which Cardi officially revealed her growing baby bump, the Bronx native clarified why she’d kept her pregnancy a secret. Bandz, a mother herself, tipped her hat to Cardi. “You know the haters always got somethin’ negative to say. But knowing Belcalis that stuff could never stop her day. Like why she kept denying rumors saying she was pregnant. She said ’cause people scrutinize, try and destroy a blessing. Plus, when expecting, you should be at peace and live in essence. I would’ve done the same thing, so thank you for the lesson.”

The episode is available now on Fuse’s official YouTube channel.
