My weird obsession/revolution with the Cannes International Film Festival continues and these videos of John Travolta in a tux dancing to, and with, 50 Cent at the Gotti premiere after party are not helping matters! The Gotti gang’s in Cannes with the beleaguered movie, directed by E from Entourage (I refuse to call him by his born name Kevin Connolly). Pitbull did the musical score so I’m not sure how Fiddy plays into all this. According to Variety he was at Cannes to pitch his own movie, taking time out of his busy schedule defending R. Kelly on Twitter.
This year was supposed to be the year of no selfies at Cannes. So naturally I assumed that if there was going to be any kind of organized protest on the red carpet, it would be by a group of outraged attention whores. Instead, this year’s Cannes Jury President Cate Blanchett and French director Agnès Varda led 82 women up the red carpet to protest gender inequality at the film festival.
