Ninja and yolandi dating ex boyfriend dating ex best friend
So naturally Navarro (with an assist from 's Dan Hyman) didn't have to be asked twice to interview Die Antwoord, just after a show in Philadelphia and 24 hours prior to touching down for a joint gig in Williamsburg. NINJA: We just gauge our shows sometimes, and when we enter a totally new audience, I think we kind of have shell shock. You're doing a performance, but it's relative to who's there. I find, personally, I like the size and the room in big venues like that, but I don't necessarily like the seats. Usually you have a lot of these idiots standing around half-watching. NAVARRO: I actually find that problem with the world at large. Let me say first that Jane's Addiction is super-happy and honored to have you guys playing with us. There's a lot of stuff going on right now in the electronic world, but there's not a whole lot of personality in the artists.NINJA: Yeah, it's fucking boring a lot of the time. DAN HYMAN: Ninja, how much did you know about Jane's Addiction before going on tour with them? I think a few years ago, Nine Inch Nails, they did a tour with Jane's Addiction.However, it's easy to see how the confusion arose: in our interview, the director explains that he wants to give fans what he describes as "the third film of the first two" – but he's speaking in terms of style, quality and vision, rather than referring to a direct sequel.
But once you got past those unexpected appearances, the clothes were just as eye-popping—especially when it came to a red-and-white doodled-on Cara depantsing a gold track suit-clad Ninja.MTV: Did he come up with them just for the video, or has he been working on them for a while?Annie Hannah: As far as we know, it's one of his things!The film is set in a near-future Johannesburg, in which crime is controlled by menacing, militarised police robots. I found the process of making it unbelievably difficult. When it comes to filmmaking, shooting is probably what I like the least. He was like: “Stick it out, son.'' That said, while I was making it, I always felt as if I would love it once it was finished. Did you have a similar experience when making your other films? If I think of the movies that I really like, the directors always went through hell to make them. I can't put my finger on exactly why it was so difficult. While Chappie has some pretty dark moments, overall – compared to, say, Alex Garland’s Ex Machina – it felt like the film was ultimately very optimistic about Artificial Intelligence? I've been interested in AI for a long time – just as a scientific concept. If an entity isn’t biologically being “told” to act a certain way, that means that it also isn’t feeling aggression, and negative emotions like that.
When one of the robots (the titular Chappie) is secretly re-programmed to develop thoughts, feelings and a personality, events take an unexpected (and violent, and explosive) turn. I don't know whether I like it more than District 9, but I may. If you really get into it, scientists don't really know exactly where morality and ethics come from in humans. A lot of people today are saying artificial intelligence will wipe us out, but I don't necessarily think that's true.We caught up with Blomkamp to talk about why shooting Chappie was a “god-awful” experience, whether or not robots will one day destroy humanity, and why, when it comes to Alien, he’s planning to give fans exactly what they want.
