I don't watch Celebrity Big Brother but this could be very excellent.
meh, they allegedly sign up a load of amazing celebs every year on Channel 5 and it always turns out to be about 3 dicks from Made In Chelsea and Howard from the Halifax adverts
Together at last.
He's blatantly been talked into this by his agent in an attempt to raise his profile in the UK/Europe, hasn't he?
His solo shows/albums have appealed to far smaller crowds than OutKast did though. Probably is a publicity stunt.
doesn't he play to about 2 people at gigs over here. i remember he had to give away free tickets to a show at Heaven a few years ago and some Scottish show that got downgraded into the bar (not even actual venue) of the academy it was at.
Outkast are a big deal and Dro 3000 is a pretty big name but Big Boi on his own, not so much.
The guy is still a huge personality, but Dre was the one who sold records & seats I guess.
but part of me is still a bit disappointed. Sir Lucious Left Foot is, what, probably top 5 of the decade and his show at the Animal Collective ATP was the best rap live performance I've ever seen, and one of the best overall probably.
so I dunno, I hope he doesn't become a footnote and devalue himself in a way
but I dunno, still, bit apprehensive as a big fan
Sit Lucious Left Foot was such a good album. Not overly keen on this idea though.
I hope he's getting a shitload of money for it. But I hate thinking artists as brilliant as Big Boi, who've made incredible music, are crap with cash and skint.
I wouldn't assume he's doing it just for the money, and therefore don't really see it as degrading either.
I'm a huge OutKast fan, and think this should funny. He's a ridiculous character at the best of times, rather than a serious 'artiste'.
