Once upon a time, in a fictional galaxy now owned by Disney, a blond farm boy named Luke Skywalker lived on the Lars homestead. Due to a susceptibility to military propaganda and religious extremism, he would eventually leave his rural moisture farm, which resembled a brutalist igloo dropped in the middle of the Tunisian Republic desert. 42 years later, one of the world’s most successful pop musicians and polymaths envisions a world where homelessness is combatted by some of the same architecture featured in George Lucas’s 1977’s hit Star Wars: A New Hope.

Mark Hamill wants Carrie Fisher to take spot of Trump's Hollywood star

Mark Hamill wants Carrie Fisher to take spot of Trump's Hollywood star West Hollywood officials want to remove President Donald Trump's star, and Mark Hamill knows who should replace it: his late "Star Wars" co-star Carrie Fisher. In a tweet Wednesday morning addressing the West Hollywood City Council's decision to approve a proposal calling for the removal of President Trump's star, Hamill wrote, "Good riddance! (and I know just who should replace him...) #AStarForCarrie." Fans quickly joined in on the hashtag on Twitter, with many expressing Hamill's call to give the President's star to the late actress.

During Kanye West‘s Forbes cover story, he takes writer Zack O’Malley Greenburg on a tour of “oblong and dozens of feet tall” prototypes. “Inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home, West has been working with a team to design prefabricated structures that sport the same austere aesthetic, with the goal of deploying them as low-income housing units,” Greenburg writes.

Taking West’s long history with Star Wars into account, the idea isn’t fully a surprise. References to the movie franchise frequently appear in his lyrics, and last year he appeared with Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) on an episode of SNL. The multi-billion-dollar property is also semi-responsible for his marriage to Kim Kardashian.

Mr. West , for his part, praised the president for stopping “the war ” with North Korea (there was none) After Mr. West ’s speech ended, Mr. Trump was left momentarily and uncharacteristically speechless as advisers The visit was only the latest headline-stealing trip to Washington for the West family.

“I told Kanye that it was a bad idea, but I did it as diplomatically as I could,” Daniel Kellison, the co-creator of Crank Yankers told Wired. “I said, The Muppet Show always had one star. You’re the star of the pilot. We can put Kim Kardashian in episode 3 or 4, but let’s focus on you.’ But he resisted. Kanye is tenacious and he kept asking me about it, and finally we compromised and agreed to have her in a sketch. He’d never met her at this point.
