*Sources tell Billboard that Andre 3000 and Big Boi are in talks to end their hiatus next year and reunite for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Outkast has long been the subject of reunion rumors ever since Andre “Andre 3000″ Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton put their Grammy-winning duo on hiatus in 2007.
Multiple sources tell Billboard that under the current plan, Coachella, which kicks off on Apr. 11, 2014 in Indio, Calif., would be the start of their reunion run and would be followed by additional festival dates in 2014.
One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been “some conversations” about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is “all systems go” for Big Boi and Andre 3000 to end their hiatus next year.
*Not that women would mind seeing some photos of Outkast member Andre 3000 nekked.
But no, that won’t be the case because a fake azz “news site” sought out 15-minutes of fame by creating the rumor that Big Boi has pics of Andre 3000 stored in his phone.
We won’t even mention the fake news sites name/URL (sticking our tongue out in a “Na na nana na” kind of way); but suffice it to say the news set the Internet ablaze and some reporters, how shall do we say this, were not so good at checking their facts before dropping a dime on the “news.”
Whew! Glad EURweb dodged that bullet!
Here is what the fake azz news site published:
“So you mean to tell me he’s gay AND has a tiny–weird p-nis. I’ma need him to pick a struggle” – Sherlita’s Sister
Sherlita who is a big hip hop fan herself also feels for the fans who want more music saying “you might see an Outkast p*rno before you’ll see another album”
The fake news item got a lot of traction around the InterWebs at some respectable locations with folks chiming in passionately in the comments sections. Some of the outlets have since deleted their posts containing the story.
Meanwhile in other news, Outkast fans recently learned that Big Boi and his wife Sherlita Patton are divorcing. Unfortunately, this appears to be true
