Die Antwoord Deny Their Splitting In 2017: "This Is A Lie"


Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord’s Yolandi Visser has issued an angry denial, after rumours that the group were to split in 2017 circulated online last week. The rumours started after her bandmate Ninja gave an interview to Exclaim magazine, where he seemed to imply it would be all over for the band next year.

In the interview Ninja was quoted as saying: “It's all over. I feel beautiful about it. I'm not scared of the end. I'm a Ninja. I'm not scared of death,” seemingly confirming that the duo would be finished in September 2017.

'Chappie' Star Dev Patel Admits Co-Starring With A Robot Brought Its Challenges

Dev Patel stars in one of the most unusual sci-fi movies of recent years, 'Chappie', in which he plays a celebrated engineer and inventor of a robotic police force. However, communicating with a robot as opposed to another actor was always going to bring its challenges.

He's probably best known for starring in the Oscar winning Eastern drama 'Slumdog Millionaire', but Dev Patel is no stranger to the sci-fi fantasy genre. In 2010, he appeared in M. Night Shyamalan's 'The Last Airbender', but rather than having to weave around various special effects, this time he was expected to enact scenes with an inanimate object.

Lady Gaga Upset By 'Freaky' Die Antwoord 'Fatty Boom Boom' Video


Lady GaGa Die Antwoord

Lady GaGa has been royally slammed by 'freaky' South African rap-ravers Die Antwoord in an online video featuring someone dressed up as the popstar.

She's reached number one in ten countries with her second album 'Born This Way', but it's safe to say she lost in her latest feud with Die Antwoord. After being asked by Gaga to open her latest tour, the band not only declined, but seemed to take offence at her perception of their style and music. To emphasize that their 'freaky' style is about being alternative rather than trying to gain attention like they think of Gaga, they ripped the singer apart in the video for one of their latest singles 'Fatty Boom Boom' which features somebody posed as her travelling through some stereotypical South African streets passing many a vicious wild animal in the street on the way. On passing Die Antwoord in the characteristically bizarre attire, the song opens; a fast-paced, high pitched rap with a heavy bassline and much profanity and, we have to say, an irresistibly catchy chorus.

Lady Gaga hit back at the video with what appears to be a jarringly amateur set of lyrics: 'i fink u freaky but you don't have a hit. hundred thousand tIckets sold in SA. #thatmyshit'. It wouldn't be so bad if the video wasn't so good, and the worst thing she could've done was draw attention to it as now one feels strongly that they will get their first 'hit'. That being said, Die Antwoord's retaliation wasn't exactly burn material: 'lady... even tho u r 'larger' than us... we still cooler than u... plus we don't have prawns in our private...'.

Video - Die Antwoord's Ninja Grabs Crotch In Front Of Photographers


South African hip hop group Die Antwoord are seen outside the Ed Sullivan Theater for 'The Late Show With David Letterman'. The trio seem reluctant to leave the car at first, drinking coffee and looking out of the window. When they leave, they head straight for the entrance, with lead singer Ninja pulling a Michael Jackson-esque move and grabbing his crotch for the surprised photographers.

Die Antwoord's debut album $O$ was released in 2009. Their second album, Ten$ion, was released at the end of January 2012
