Tyler Perry's Movie Posters For "Madea's Big Happy Family" + Bun B Teaches Religious Studies At Rice University + Wiz Khalifa Introduced Amber Rose To His Mom

 

Tyler Perry's alter ego Madea returns to the movies on April 22 and we have a peek at two of the movie's posters inside.  Also, get the deets on Bun B teaching religious studies at Rice University and what happened when Amber Rose met Wiz Khalifa's mama.

 

 

Tyler Perry has released two new movie posters advertising his new flick Madea's Big Happy Family hitting movie houses on April 22.  On the funny posters, Madea is featured as both Black Swan and The Godmother. I hope Tyler releases a few more of these.  He really knows how to advertise his products.

 

 

In music news...

 

Rapper Bun B has traded the microphone for textbooks and stained glass windows as the“Distinguished Lecturer" of Religious Studies at Rice University in Houston, Texas.  The southern rapper is teaching “Religious Studies 331: Religion and Hip-Hop Culture” at Rice University because he wanted to expand the discussion past Hip-Hop 101.  

“The whole point of me as a Hip-Hop artist and a representative of the Hip-Hop community teaching this course, was to inspire people that Hip-Hop doesn’t have to be confined within the conditions that we know it to be confined.  You don’t have to just be a Hip-Hop artist in a club, or an arena or a studio or on television or on the radio. That Hip-Hop has the opportunity to educate and inform and inspire people across all walks of life, within all settings. I feel like being able to teach at a college university is a perfect example of showing how Hip-Hop can influence the minds of the next generation."

Some may find it hard to imagine Bun B is this position, but when he describes the course and what it stands for, it's easy to see his passion and what he brings to the discipline.

“People are under the assumption that this is a course that I created, but this was a course that was already in existence with Rice in association with the H.E.R.E. Project. The H.E.R.E. Project is Houston Enriches Rice Education. And what they’ve done with this program is taken the opportunity to bring the rich cultural history of Houston onto the campus of Rice University. Me being a part of Houston’s culture, this is a part of that process. This was the first program that asked me to actually be a part of the process: the building of the lesson plan, the forming of the syllabus, the actual lectures taking place in the class—everything that helps define the course.”

So what are the students learning? Bun said,  

"In this class it gives them an opportunity to ask questions and go towards a deeper level of introspection with this not just being a Hip-Hop course but a religion in Hip-Hop course and being based out of the Humanities and Religious Studies department,” Bun explains. “So it’s really asking real questions about people. It’s not just playing music and showing videos and stuff like that. We’re having a real dialogue and we’re showing how Hip-Hop as a culture addresses the real questions in people’s lives and how that relates to one’s spiritual or religious quest in life."

 

To his credit, the class is doing well.  Its size has doubled to 250 students since the start of the semester. I think it's great that someone like Bun B can take his expertise from the street and put it in the classroom.  

 

Also in musc news,

 

Wiz Khalifa seems very happy with Amber Rose. He even introduced her to his mama. 
When asked how the romance was going, Wiz simply said, "Currently cool."

Amber has made appearances at some of his shows and they often get flirty on Twitter.  In his interview with Funkmaster Flex, Wiz said during the AFC Championship game in Pittburgh, he introduced Amber to his mother and they hit it off.   

Maybe Wiz will write a song for Amber. He sure has a lot of new music on the way with his new album  Rolling Papers due on March 29, while his next single, "Roll Up," hit the Web last week.

For-real Bun? ...Yo if yall

For-real Bun? ...Yo if yall think his teaching is some deep expression of human experience through hip-hop music, then what you will find at the end of the day is hip-hop as a Religion! Ultimately, anything that claims to be god will take the place of God in your life. Thus, you can't have two masters, either you will love one or hate the other. The world loves anything that will take Christ's true place in the hearts of men... and that's real talk. Need further evidence check out exministries.com

This "man" is so UNORIGINAL.

This "man" is so UNORIGINAL. He will do anything to make a dime and degrade African Americans along the way as long as it PAYS. For (MANY) African American male actors, and specifically Black comedians, it is almost a requirement in Hollywood that at some point they dress up as a woman in order "to advance". A few years ago Director John Singleton told Black Star News, “I’m tired of all these black men in dresses … How come nobody’s protesting that?” And comedian Dave Chappelle confessed to Oprah Winfrey that he’d been pressured to do drag. “I don’t need no dress to be funny,” he said. Chappelle also suggested that their insistence amounted to a “conspiracy.” Tyler Perry has countered this notion in Essence that the criticism and speculation about his sexuality has, “given [him] a firm seating in [his] manhood.” LMAO But the BIGGER question most African Americans miss is what Tyler Perry's DRAG performance says about African American women. What message is Tyler sending that when he decides to dress up like Black women that THIS is how we act? I’m not suggesting we toss our sense of humor out the window but if a White MALE dressed up in Black FACE and portrayed us as loud, fat, or old we’d have something to say about it. But it's OK for TYLER to do it? People need to WAKE up and stop allowing GAY men to DEFINE OUR community. He's equally offensive in how he portrays African American MALES as Chris Brown types. Or African American women as VICTIMS. WRONG!

AMEN! AND THANK YOU! I

AMEN! AND THANK YOU! I refuse to see any of his foolishness, all he's doing is feeding into stereotypes, i mean the first few movies were okay, but now enough already come up with something else, and hollywood loves it cause honestly white folks love to laugh and make fun of us acting a fool, and they love to see big, over weight black women or black men portraying black women actin a fool and being loud cause that's how they perceive us, and the white women are shown to be sexy, classy, and attractive

I hear you. But some how

I hear you. But some how people don't have an issue with NeNe Leakes who embodies most of the steroytypes. White people enjoy and get rich off that everyday. No one seems to be waxing philosophical about that.
