We Spent 7 Minutes in (Creativity) Heaven With The Lonely Island
Sure, Taylor Swift’s epic girl gang is currently the clique every girl is jealous of, but if we’re being honest, the three members of the musical comedy trio The Lonely Island are the ultimate #BFFgoals. Friends since middle school, Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone have grown from creating hilarious rap music to collaborating with huge Hollywood stars (like Justin Timberlake and Rihanna) to starring, directing and producing their own summer blockbuster.
Their recently released movie Popstar: Never Stop Stopping is a mockumentary following Conner4Real (Andy Samberg) a Justin Bieber-esque star who is at the peak of his fame. But like any good pop star story, the movie follows a serious rough patch in Conner’s life. The film is full of epic celeb cameos and a killer soundtrack of brand-new Lonely Island songs. Last week we caught up with the three friends + creative collaborators to ask them a few burning Qs we had for them. Find all their answers below in our colorful + fun new series: 7 Minutes in (Creativity) Heaven.
