OBVIOUSLY James Franco now has a band called Daddy that has just released a Motown-inspired EP called MotorCity. What—did you think James Franco wasn't going to be in a band? You're so weird.
Here is a link to a story about Daddy, at which a video begins to automatically play, so be careful if you're in some kind of reprehensible hell where James Franco's art isn't considered a central part of human existence.
This is a scene from the life James Franco leads:
For that extra touch of Motor City authenticity, "Crime" features guest vocals by none other than Motown legend Smokey Robinson, whose keening falsetto found its way into the song after he and Franco had a chance meeting on an airplane.What—did you think James Franco doesn't conjure at his whim whatever he pleases from the farthest corners of the multiverse...? Get real.
"We were pulling into the gate, and I woke up, and there was this man standing over me saying 'Hey, I just want you to know I'm a big fan of your work,'" Franco recalls. "His eyes were so striking. I had just watched a documentary about the history of Motown on the drive to the airport, and there he was."
