Patti Smith Memoir Getting The Movie Treatment

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersBookz

patti smith memoir becoming a movie

Exciting news for Patti Smith fans!

According to new reports, a movie version of Patti Smith's memoir Just Kids is in the works.

The book revolves around Patti's life with deceased photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, and it explores "how they inspired each other to become leaders in their fields."

Gladiator screenwriter John Logan will be collaborating with Patti on the project, which we're thinking bodes very well!

Previously, Patti Smith's life was explored in Steven Sebring's documentary film Patti Smith: Dream of Life. Should definitely be interesting to see what new insights about the artist come to the surface with this one!

Will U check out the movie adaptation of Patti's memoir when it comes out?

Vanessa Paradis Talks Unkle Karl In Interview

vanessa-paradis-models-chanel-in-interview-magazine-november-2010-issue.jpg

Model slash singer Vanessa Paradis has a photo spread in the November issue of Interview and it can only be described as one word: stunning.

Naturally, Johnny Depp's love is wearing all Chanel for the shoot and dished about her long history with the French fashion house and Karl Lagerfeld.

Vanessa tells Patti Smith:

We met a long time ago, but I've only really known him for a few years. Working with him on the things we do for Chanel is a collaboration, of course, but it's also just wonderful to be directed by him. Because the man is just a genius-a genius with a big sense of humor-which is so much fun to be around.

He comes prepared to photo shoots, but he also has a big kid's spirit as well-because his spontaneity is incredible. He'll come up with ideas on the spot, and they are even better than the ones he came with before. His imagination is constantly going and moving. I never thought I could speak like this about photo sessions, but when you're working with him, there is something deeper than just the image. It doesn't stop at the surface of, "Okay, we'll put makeup on, we'll put clothes on, and then take a pretty picture." It's deeper than that.

The more you get to know Karl Lagerfeld, the more you love him. There's something about his eyes. He always has those really dark glasses on, but then sometimes he'll take them off and you'll see the eyes. They are so pure and beautiful. It's really amazing, because he's got quite an impressive look, with the suits and the ties and the jewelry and everything, but underneath there's really a little boy.

How insightful!

We'd love to see the softer side of Unkle Karl.

REM Will Experience The Teaches Of Peaches!

Filed under: PeachesMusic Minute

Brilliant!

The always awesome REM is prepping the release of their 15th studio album, Collapse Into Now, and bandmember Mike Mills revealed that our beloved PEACHES will be contributing to at least one of the tracks, as well as Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Patti Smith!

He continues:

"With Accelerate we were trying to make a point by making the songs as short and as fast as possible. So we wanted this new one to be more expansive. We wanted to put more variety into it and not limit ourselves to any one type of song. There are some really slow, beautiful songs, there are some nice, mid-tempo ones, and then there are three or four rockers. [It's a] very personal, very human record. Not only to [singer] Michael [Stipe], but personal and human in the sense of the narrative of the songs, the protagonists of the songs."

EXCELLENT! This sounds much more like the REM that we know and love!

And we can't wait to hear a track infused with the teaches of Peaches!

This is going to be so effing amazeballs!

New single NOW, please!
