ON ALL FRONTS: Talk about multiple personality disorder: Noomi Rapace is getting ready to play septuplets in the sci-fi thriller “What Happened to Monday.”
“I know, it’s insane,” she said at the Givenchy men’s show in Paris on Friday. “But yeah, I’m pretty much going to play seven identical sisters and I don’t know — nobody’s done it before. How do you do it? How do you have, like, seven personalities?”
Rapace is helping to rewrite the original script, in which the siblings were male, and shooting should start in early summer. “I’m really excited. I love to be challenged and to kind of put myself out in a no man’s land,” the “Prometheus” star said.
The Swedish actress made a beeline to greet Angel Haze, who confessed to feeling bleary-eyed after performing at an Adidas party the night before. The U.S. rapper leaked her album “Dirty Gold” on SoundCloud last month, forcing her record label to advance its release date, and is now embarking on a U.K. and U.S. tour.
“It feels good because I made a decision for myself, you know, and consequently made my label make a decision that they couldn’t come to, and now, it’s just on me to work my ass off and deliver the record,” she said.
The show drew an eclectic crowd including Kanye West, Amanda Lear, Salim Kechiouche, Ladyfag, Bao Bao Wan and New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz, who reported he was recovering from his recent injury. “My knee is doing very well. It’s responding properly and rehab has been going well, so it feels good,” he said.
Leon Else was preparing to make his stage debut in London next week after rising to fame on MySpace. “I’m just trying to take each day as it comes,” the “Protocol” singer said. “So I’m going to enjoy today, you know, not let the nerves creep in, because I am nervous, I will be nervous.”
Bobby Gillespie said he was obsessed with writing another hit record. “It’s a mantra. Every day I get up, ‘I must write a hit. I must write a hit,’” the Primal Scream frontman said. But he won’t be locking himself in a country manor for inspiration.
“I think to write a rock ‘n’ roll song, you need to be in a city,” he argued. “I think rock ‘n’ roll should be the sound of panic and excitement and ecstasy, and it can be kind of violent and paranoid and sexual, so maybe it needs that kind of big-city paranoia and energy.”
