Every year when the Academy Oscars come around, lots of people are trying to figure out which category movies, actresses and actors should be placed in as well as directors and writers.  It’s a very big deal in case you didn’t know especially in the film industry.  Imagine an actor or actress who has worked their butt off for the last couple of years as what they do and not get nominated.  Well let me rephrase that, it’s not all about who doesn’t gets nominated, because in the end, every actor, actress, director and writer are winners! 

 

But let’s talk about the new category that has had some people in anger and talking.  The Oscars decided to add a new category to the list and that is the “most popular picture”  Seriously what do you guys feel about that new category being added?  Do you think that it is fair since they already have “Best picture” category added? There has been a lot of great movies so far this year with Black Panther kicking the numbers straight out the ball park with the gross numbers they have been receiving.  Ryan Coogler definitely deserves an Oscar for this movie!  

According to http://www.vulture.com, here are some of the top good movies so far in 2018:

  1. Black Panther
  2. Paddington 2
  3. The First Purge
  4. Blockers
  5. Isle of Dogs
  6. Annihilation 
  7. Leave No Trace
  8. Love after Love
  9. Sorry to Bother You
  10. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? 

Other movies that appeared on other sites such as ‘Rotten Tomatoes’ and ‘Parade’ had some of the same movie adding “A Quiet Place” “Love Simon” and “The Incredibles 2”

 

So the next Oscar should be very exciting especially with the new category.

Are Your Curves Worth DYING For?

“My anaconda DUNK!”

A new show is coming to BET called Killer Curves: Bodies to Die for is produced by Lala Anthony.   So many women in the industry has leveled up to certain expectations that having a phat butt and large breasts and thighs will make them look physically attractive and hot! Maybe in that case, but what about the health side affects or the after math years down the line? A lot of black women; especially on reality TV is getting butt injections, breast implants and even lip injections just to have that banging body.  Personally I don’t think that is worth dying for.  

K-Michelle who an R and B singer and a reality star on Love N Hip Hop Hollywood has had butt injections and has paid the price for it when she started getting sick and getting headaches all the time.  “After I got my butt shots, I felt like I had confidence,” stated K. Michelle in an article on The Source. 

She will be on Killer Curves: Bodies to Die for which airs tonight on BET at 10 pm EST.

Overdosing is the REAL Thing! Don’t Judge!

There has been a lot of celebrity stars who has been dealing with a lot of issues; whether it’s family issues, dealing with low self-esteem or something else, celebrities has an image to pertain because everyone sees them on social media! Social media is filled with trolls with their ratchet comments and evil thoughts.  It’s no wonder a lot of celebrities are clapping back on social media and replying to unwanted comments.  

But what I’m really saying is that overdosing is the real thing!  No one deserves to die from these horrible things nor should celebrities should be judged by most of their actions.  As I was interviewing BET Rebel actor Danielle Truitt, she talked about one of her movements called “Be Eternal; The Artist Thriving series which is a movement for artists in the entertainment industry who goes through a lot of life situations such as rejections, self-esteem, suicide and others.  

Like with Demi Lovato and her addictions, she is going to rehab which is a great thing and a definite step to getting better.  Of course the trolls has already snuck their way into the comments and of course started their “ratchet chants and comments,” but her focus definitely should be on herself with her support system by her side and ignoring social media altogether.  It’s a shame what social media can actually do to a person mentally which all the fame taking over and pressure of keeping up with their entertainment buzz such as music and new albums, new products, new business and so forth.  Especially as a music artist, your fans expect you to produce new music often.  

So the next time you read about a celebrity or anybody overdosing, don’t judge because you never know what that person is really going through.  If they are willing to change their life around, it proves they are taking the necessary steps on the right track.

Nashville-TN- The man that killed four people at a Waffle House is now in custody.  29-year old Travis Reinking opened fire and killed four people.  Police are unsure on why Reinking opened fire in the first place.  They think it may be due to mental issues.  More than 100 police troopers have been going door-to-door and looking in wooded areas for the suspect.  Days before the incident, Reinking stole a BMW; police found the stolen vehicle, but it didn’t link him to the suspect. 

The four people that were killed were of different races; three were African-American and the other was Hispanic. Reinking was involved in other incidents such as in May of 2016, he told Illonois police that singer Taylor Swift was stalking him and hacking his phone.  He agreed to check into a local hospital for an evaluation.  Then last June, Reinking jumped into a community pool wearing a pink woman’s coat over his underwear.  Then last July, Secret Service arrested him for trespassing and entered the White House.  He said that he wanted to meet President Donald Trump.  

“There’s certainly evidence that there’s some sort of mental health issues involved,” Tazewell County Sheriff Robert Huston said.

According to the attorney for the family, Lee Merrit, quoted “They saw a car full of black people sitting in front of a Walmart, and they decided that was suspicious,” said Merritt. “They just began pouring bullets … It’s irresponsible. It’s dangerous. It’s mind-boggling, the use of force.” (Source, The Guardian)
