First Look: Andre 3000 As Jimi Hendrix In “All Is By My Side”

Andre 3000 is about to star in "All Is By My Side" where he plays Jimi Hendrix in this bio movie. The movie was written and directed by John Ridley who just won an Oscar for "12 Years A Slave" for Best Screenplay.

The scene surrounds Jimi's decision in moving to London. "All By My Side" will be screened next week at SXSW.-DocFB

Diagnosis: The Hendrix state was reluctant to let any of Jimi's music appear in the film so do not expect to hear any of Hendrix's music in the film.

Beyonce Covers Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” With Andre 3000; Falls Flat

Beyonce & Amy Winehouse Image By celebnmusic247.com

Beyonce is covering "Back To Black" by Amy Winehouse. The song is from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack and features Andre 3000.

I want to like it. I really do. It is good...but not as good as Florence And The Machine's "Gatsby" song or Lana Del Rey's contribution. Maybe knowing that Jay Z is producing the soundtrack and that Beyonce appears on it makes me critic it more than I should. Maybe it is because that Amy's version is more powerful. It is a great tribute, but I take it as nothing more.

Thoughts?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Dunk it
