Tatyana Ali Out & About+MiMi Is Makeupless & "Precious"

Tatyana Ali and her sis Anastasia were spotted leaving out for a dinner with President and First Lady Obama and poetry night this past Tuesday near the White House:

Cute black dress and Tory Burch clutch.
And in other less makeup friendly news:

Mariah Carey has starred in a movie called Precious.  For it, she had to put on weight, go mostly makeupless, and just look rough to play a social worker.  I wonder if her acting is still as bad as she's going to have to look.  Just asking.  Here's the preview:

{Thanks Kiss}

This movie looks like a must-see. PUSH (the book that the movie is based on) is a must-read.

JoJo: Girl i read the book

JoJo: Girl i read the book too. The movie probably won’t put everything that was in the book. The book damn near had me in tears so I can only imagine how I’m going to be in the theatre. But I will go support this one. It looks like they did a REALLY good job with it. And did I see TYler Perry’s name attached to it? I have to go back and check. If so I’m surprised….. He only seems to put out garbage. So people If you can go and support damn Madea then you NEED to support this….. I sure hope people support this movie with a black cast. Although it does have a message most Tyler Perry stuff does, it does not seem to have the standard Tyler/after school special elements ie. hunky black actor, bible message, church scene, romance, predictable ending. Im all for supporting Tyler Perry as long as he has not had a hand in conceptual writing.(House of Payne,Mad Black Woman) Mariah does seem like she expanded from Glitter. Don't be suprised if you see a certain bayou songstress play a crackhead lesbian hermaphrodite gangster in her next movie. Of course this character would discover/develop her talent to sing by the end of the movie.

Foley: See Tasha..you on a

Foley: See Tasha..you on a roll huh??First off Mariah can act way better than that Creole smut you worship so back the fuck off.Second, this movie is not centered around her so for you to dig that deep and her out shows ppl what you really are, a damn hater. My God, she’s playing a damn social worker! You want her to look dolled up in some Louboutins for that?? What the fuck?!Anwhoo, I will go and see this movie. It looks really intense and that book brought tears to my eyes…this is a must see. DITTO

For all of you worried about

For all of you worried about Tyler Perry and Oprah's involvement in the film, they only came on AFTER the film had success at sundance. Tyler Perry's studios are helping w/ distribution and Harpo Studios is helping w/ promotion of the film.

The movie Precious is based

The movie Precious is based on the book Push by Saphire. All who've read that book know that it's a great story. It's actually one of my favorite books, it keeps your interest form beginning till end. I'm anticipating the movie.

'Push' is a very disturbing story. It really is. I couldn't believe Monique was playing the mom. I wonder who's playing the father. Wow. This is one Tyler and Oprah movie that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

I'm still appalled that they made 'Precious' into a movie. That book gave me nightmares after I had to read it for a class in college. Such a disturbing story.

Tasha you need to quit with

Tasha you need to quit with your obvious hating...dont you proof read before you type....what about that clip give you the idea that mariah is such a horrible actress.... shes probably been through far more than your precious Beyonce and has more to draw from....Beyonce has to draw emotion from other peoples lives....Her acting is just as believable as her lyrics>>>> womp womp

I heard about the buzz with

I heard about the buzz with this movie, and it has been critically acclaimed. I don't know what others are seeing, but Mariah was believable in this role (sans the bad wig...lol). I don't think that comment was called for...we know a couple of singers who just cannot cross over into acting... Here are some reviews regarding Mariah's acting in this movie (I didn't include the websites--u know why): "Solid supporting turns from Mariah Carey, Paula Patton and Lenny Kravitz will also help commercially. In a striking non-star turn, Mariah Carey is credible as a veteran social worker who is jarred by Precious' plight." Based on its trailer alone, Carey’s performance in Precious makes amends for her less-lauded roles in Glitter and Wise Girls. The singer completely shakes off all vestiges of her diva persona and takes on the frumpy, gritty role of as a social worker. -Rolling Stone Mariah Carey threw out her glamorous image to play a supporting role as a social worker who helps a sexually abused teen in the indie film “Push" Mariah is getting positive reviews from critics who saw “Push” last weekend at the Sundance Film Festival. Ok, I know you guys don't like dissertations, so I'll stop here...

Booty Breath Bey: Obsessed was just nominated for an Oscar. Check out TMZ, Perez Hilton and Inside Edition, Entertainment Tonight. Everyones talking about it. Beyonce she gave an eloquent, articulate press conference. Ok, sarcasm, I get it. Gosh, I thought the strong-arming finally paid off...lol

She’s actually nice when covering these discount actresses and so called fashionistas. Natasha start a fashion blog and show these bum biotches your TNY sundays best. Go own make throw up , hell some might slit their throats if they knew who you brunched with. Well, she probably isn't brunching with Mariah. lol. So WHO?

Why the hell is BEYONCE'S name even in this post? People dayuum GTFOH with that BS. This movie looks good, Mariah doesn't look like Mariah so let's give the chick a chance. Constant pulling female entertainers on blast. Last I checked they're paid, married, happy, and extremely rich.

pink wall street: Girl Shut

pink wall street: Girl Shut the hell up!. I am so sick of ya’ll really! Natasha does not bash anyone. lol. Calling Mariah a bad actress ( which she is ) is bashing? What ever. I named all those expensive things because most of the broke a$$es love to pull the ” She must be jealous because shes fat and broke”When she is NEETHA fat or broke! Why would she be jealous of 99% of the celebs she covers? WHY? So take that doctor phil $shit somewhere else. I am not trying to here NONE! of it. I'm sick of your dumb ass!! She does talk side ways about everyone except BEYONCE!! I didn't say she was jealous. I said she must be unhappy.If you think it's Dr Phil shit then this web site is JERRY SPRINGER SHIT!! Negativity. So take your hating ass back to kissing Tasha's ass.

I just ordered the book from

I just ordered the book from Amazon.com. Precious was HIV positive, had babies by her daddy, abused, illiterate, and over-weight. Man, the adversity this girl went through is beyond heartbreaking, I can't wait to read the book, and for the movie to come out.

NO HATE!!!: @ FRIDAY IS

NO HATE!!!: @ FRIDAY IS COMINTo answer your question yes I can. That young lady probably has a higher self esteem than most people who come on here and bitch about someones red carpet dress, , or shoes! Mo’Nique has most definately had leading roles and quite honestly “Phat Girls” ended glamorously for her as well as “Hair Show”! Glamour is not all about “Loubous” and “Gowns” hon!! And the STAR of that movie looked very glamorous at the Sundance Film Festival as im sure she will at the premiere. Thats HER moment. Folk like u look at HER and say she will never be in a glamorous role due to your own insecurities. She did a great job and will go far. Does that answer your question sweetie?? I don’t do blog arguing so please don’t come at me with tha childishness if u respond. ok

This film looks great. I cant wait till it hits the theaters. I dont think we should criticize Mrs. Cannon being as my girl Bey cannot act her way out of a wet paper bag. As for Mimi, I think she did a darned good job considering she's NOT playing a singer or an entertainer. Good job Oprah and Tyler for picking up the production/distribution costs. I heard it was supposed to be called Push but they changed it.

NO HATE!!!: @ Dark Skin

NO HATE!!!: @ Dark Skin Women are Always……I get that completely but why do we always go to that?? I think that at if any time during this process, Monique felt like she she was being disrespect or degraded or disrespecting or degrading, I highly doubt she would have done it. The movie is based off of a book that was written by a brown skin women who wrote about what she saw growing up. Plain and simple. It’s not like this same thing doesnt happen to lght skn women, white women and what not its just based off of what the author saw and wrote about. It’s non-fiction. </blockq NO HATE!!!: @Dark skin Women are always….And to piggy back on what I said, We’ve all seen sistas like Gabrielle Union, Nia long, and host of other darker skin sistas in number of movies where they play respectful and glamorous “leading” roles. For those who don’t know talented C-List actors come in all shades. This light skn darkskin thing is really redundant here in 2009! I dont worry about that foolishness its silly, bcus for one i’m a beautiful brown skin women who loves and takes care of myself and my body so when women start to embrace themselves they can move past their own personal complexes. Let that sh*t go!!! THE STAR OF THIS MOVIE, THIS MOVIE, THIS MOVIE..............CAN U SEE HER IN A GLAMOROUS ROLE????????????????????????????????????????????
