Kelis Covers Jet + YBF Remembers Actress Vonetta McGee


 

Kelis graces the cover of Jet and looks absolutely fabulous doing so.  More on her issue and the loss of a YBF star when you read on.


 

Kelis is looking FAB in her Jet photoshoot.  In the article Kelis talks about her album, new music style, rumors and her new found spirituality.

Here's a quote from the article:

I wasn't angry Kelis... This is real life.  It's not rehearsal or a game.  It really is my life.  All I could do was make music that I felt and put it out there.  I think people gravitate towards honesty.

Ok Kelis.  Not mad at you.   This issue hits the stands July 26th.

In sad news, actress Vonetta McGee has died at the age of 65.

Born Lawrence Vonetta McGee, she starred in films of the blaxploitation era such as Blacula and Shaft in Africa.

According to the Los Angeles Times, she suffered cardiac arrest and died in the hospital on Friday, July 9th.

Here's a video of Vonetta being interviewed on Soul Train.

Such a beautiful and fabulous woman.  May she rest in peace.

Vonetta McGee was also most

Vonetta McGee was also most recently in "Lift," where she was cast as Kerry Washinton's mother. Kerry Washington played a "booster" who sought to satisfy her mother with expensive jewelry in a smash and grab heist... It was a decent movie for cable that later went to DVD...

The lady in the afro is not

The lady in the afro is not her. 65 is still kinda young to die so sudden. She's a beauty. I give it up to the actors of the Blaxploitation era--they had to perpetuate negative stereotypes when they could have been placed for better roles. Damn Hollywood still hasn't changed much. Kelis' cover is really nice and so is the other pic. As one of the artists that I considered one of the better "out there" artists she is really disappointing me. What happened to the "I Hate You So Much Right Now" and "Get Along With You" Kelis.

The bathtub pic is the absolute first pic I've ever seen of Kelis that I like. Seems like she always tries too damn hard to be something - I don't know what. But that pic is hot. RIP Ms. McGee. I'd never heard of her until today, but I like the Soul Train interview.

If this is Kelis wiser, how dumb could she possibly have been before? Anyway I will give it up to her though that's a fabulous cover. Still all of her recent comments, fashion choices and music have been trash. Sorry, not winning this ex-fan back with a good angle and some photoshop.

I was only familiar w/ "Shaft

I was only familiar w/ "Shaft in Africa" but I'm sure she was a wonderful actress. She probably was very underappreciated in her time. On a side note: That Soul Train vid was hilarious-she obv. had a sense of humor. And the guy tryin' to push up on her was classic. It's about time that Jet gave SOME attention to non-mainstream artists. Good for Kelis.
