It will for sure be a fantastic voyage next year. George Clinton, the grandmaster of funk, will join Tom, Sybil and Jay on the 2014 Fantastic Voyage taking place onboard the Carnival Conquest March 16-24th. He may not look like the old George Ciinton, but the funk is still alive. Ciinton’s longtime style look of multicolored yarn-adorned hair has been replaced by a more conservative look, but be clear, the funk is still alive.
He’s coming on the cruise with Ice Cube in what is sure to be a multi-generational hip-hop funk mashup. Katt Williams will be aboard as well, with more new performers to be announced this week.
“You know it ‘s going to be a party,” Clinton told the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “You know it’s going to be one nation under a groove.”
Clinton also says that he’s starring in a reality show about his life, scheduled to air sometime this year. It’s called “The Clintons,” but unlike the other famous family with that last name, this show will focus more on the personal than the political.
“I’m doing a reality show with my family, with my son Tracy, my six grandkids, Scott Thompson, Brandi – it’s a big family thing,” he told “Uncut” magazine earlier this year. “A bit like ‘The Osbournes’ but most of them are, like, musicians, rappers and everything. We got to come up with new ways to get the music across, so we’re doing this reality show. So we can expose all the noses out there, stealing the copyrights and taking people’s music and money. This is all gonna be part of the reality show, the copyright fight, plus we still kicking ass onstage.”
