Rumor: Kanye West to Play Gay in Forthcoming Film

The report comes from largely uncredible gossip site Media Take Out, so take it with a HUGE grain of salt.

Kanye Kanye has signed on to do some acting, in a flick about a GAY jazz band in 1939. He plays a GAY band member, and there is EXPLICIT gay sex in this movie. 

It is being funded by ALL of his illuminati buddies, Will smith, Jay z and even Oprah has put some money into this movie. its a 20 million dollar film. 

The script won 9 awards, so i think it's good. The Oscars Academy has this thing called the nicholl, a competition for screenplays, and the script for the movie won there twice, so I guess that means it will be one of those oscar films. It isn't the typical hood movie rappers do.

I couldn't locate anything about such a script on the Nicholl Screenwriter Competition site. If anybody has any knowledge of it, please let us know.

  2. YUCK! How can you post on your blog something from MediaTakeOut? Yuck, yuck, yuck! You just diminished your blog a notch in my eyes.

  3. There is no way to win a "nicholl award" twice. First, it's a fellowship for the author and second, you can't resubmit a previously entered piece. Maybe the script made it through 2 rounds in the competition...but that's still not winning anything.

  5. i think the bit about him getting help from his "illuminati buddies" should raise questions about the source's credibility.

  6. Is the film called "my entire life by Kanye West"? Is that the "gay" character he's playing?

  7. The writers at MEDIA TAKEOUT are well known liars and fabricators who cater to a certain readership that doesn't exactly scream "I'm educated and should know better." However even with their pandering they get some things right even if the details are entirely off. So this can be hit or miss.

  8. The story is true, but hugely exxageretd, thanks to MTO. The script is called " Red HOt CHarlie" our "Glimmer, GLimmer" on the nicholl. Some other site cracked the case.

  9. "It's a 20 million dollar film" should be a red flag right there. What movie (other than art house) gets made for only 20 million anymore?
