Lenny Kravitz Set To Play Marvin Gaye In Biopic

Lenny Kravitz


According to London’s Evening Standard, a film based on the life and career of Marvin Gaye is being made with Lenny Kravitz starring as the Motown crooner. The film is being directed by Julien Temple who directed the filmAbsolute Beginners’ with David Bowie and worked on several projects about the Sex Pistols


The Late Marvin Gaye

The movie doesn’t have a title yet, but it focuses on the final years of Gaye’s life which he spent in London battling an alcohol addiction and dodging the tax man and being rescued by music promoter Freddy Cousaert, who brought him to his flat in Ostend, Belgium to recover and get his life back on track.

This would be Kravitz’s first starring role, but he he made he has made big screen appearances in ‘Precious’ and ‘The Hunger Games’. Janis Gaye, the singer’s second and last wife, has said she feels “very sceptical” [sic] about the project. I’m very “sceptical” about it as well. Hey guys, I learned a new word today!

Ah, here we go again. Why not make a proper movie about Marvin’s life and have the approval of his family? Doesn’t he deserve that? Jimi Hendrix and Nina Simone do, but they certainly aren’t getting it and it doesn’t seem that Marvin will, either.

Magazine Round-Up! The September Issues

Every fashionista looks forward to the September issues the major mags put out every year. While this year’s offerings aren’t as exciting as previous years, I still can’t wait to flip through 300 pages of of (mostly) ads and fashion.

‘Glee’‘s Lea Michele got the choice cover of Harper’s Bazaar shot by one of my favorite photographers, Mark Seliger. Michele wore a number of great dresses in the spread, including a flowered Valentino and this amazing blue Gucci dress. Not to mention that white jumpsuit on the cover.

In the interview Lea chats about following her dreams of being on Broadway. Even though she might be out at ‘Glee’ soon, she has no plans to take a break.

“I don’t stop,” Lea says. “It’s my nature. People have to tell me to slow down. I plan on playing every role on Broadway. I want to do Evita. I want to do Sweeney Todd with [Glee costar] Chris Colfer. We want to do Wicked. I’ll be Elphaba and he wants to play ‘Guy-linda.’ I want to do movies, make music. Glee is only the beginning.”

Kristen Stewart looks surprisingly good in W magazine’s September issue. Styled by Edward Enninful and photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott this is probably one of the best shoots Stewart has ever done. Remember that disaster of a Vogue cover?

Sadly, they still couldn’t get any real emotion out of her, but hey at least she looks good.

Newlywed Kate Moss covers Vogue‘s September issue, with almost 800 pages this year. Not really feeling the cover, shot by Mario Testino, but the pictures from her wedding to The Kills’ Jamie Hince are gorgeous, as are the shots of the couple together, and Kate with her daughter.

Kate gushed that she was inspired by the documentary series ‘My Big Fat Gypsy Weddingwhen it came to planning her own.

I am so romantic about Gypsies,” Kate explains. “They’re not allowed to do anything until they get married. So they all get married really young, at sixteen. You can’t believe the dresses. They’re like blinging butterflies times ten; they can’t move down the aisle! It’s so genius. I was just watching Jamie, so cute, and I was like, these girls, they just spend their whole life waiting for that day—let’s do it!”

Well, anyways.

And something for the ladies, Lenny Kravitz covers UPTOWN magazine and well, do I need to say more? Look at him!

The shoot follows Lenny around New York City, showing off his trademark style.

Paul Rudd makes it onto Nylon Guys, and begs a question from me, do guys actually read fashion magazines? You know Paul, if this whole acting thing doesn’t work out for you, there’s always modeling!
