TYLER PERRY: "I HAD To Defend Casting Kim Kardashian!"

TheYBF.com caught up with Tyler Perry at his New York premiere for the upcoming Madea's Witness Protection flick.  And surprisingly, Mr. Perry had much to say about the co-star of another of his upcoming movies, Kim Kardashian.

 

Deets inside...

Director and actor Tyler Perry, pictured above at the Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection New York premiere at AMC Lincoln Square Theater, was every bit the confident head honcho when grilled by swarms of media about his castings of both Bobbi Kristina Brown & Kim Kardashian in his respective upcoming projects, "For Better Or Worse" and The Marriage Counselor.

"I didn’t have to defend Bobbi [Kristina], I had to defend Kim," Tyler revealed to TheYBF.com at last night's premiere.

He continued:

"There was so much going on in [Kim's] marriage at the time, but all that stuff is the past.  The movie is called The Marriage Counselor so, of course, there was some stuff to say about that."

And if you think Kim's acting skills (on an actual movie set that is) aren't quite sharp enough, Tyler has a different opinion:

"You know, I think she did a great job.  I don't think it could of been a better time for her because she was going through so much at the time. She did a fantastic job in the movie and I’m very excited about it.”

Oh.  And as for his thoughts about Kim becoming the latest chick on Kanye's throne:

"Oh, they’re dating? Hey, well, life is short. I believe you should live your life. You only have one to live.”

That's one way to look at it.

The multi-talented Mr. Perry also clapped back at the critics of Bobbi Kristina's skills as he predicts she'll have an incredible career:

"As far as Bobbi Kristina goes, I didn't have to defend her casting. The whole purpose of that was to make sure she was around people who care and love her. What I found when my mother died is that you need to be around people that you trust, and I was glad that I was able to do that for Bobbi.

That kid did a great job! She’s so talented and such an actor.  I’m so proud of her.  I’m telling you now, as far as she wants to go in the business she can.”

We'll be watching...

Black people are wasting

Black people are wasting their energy. Kim K has made a name for herself, she's winning all the way to the bank. I live in LA, her biggest fans are Arabs who think she's putting Armenia on the map. She has several fans from different ethnic groups. So, saying Black people made her, sounds very stupid. Honestly, she carries herself well and her show portray normal and simple things. You won't catch her drunk, partying or doing stupid things. I went to her store and most of the people I saw shopping there were non black people. So, a lot of white, Asian, Latin people love her.

Wow way to generalize a whole

Wow way to generalize a whole group of people! Just so u know, I'm WHITE & I don't like Kim K! Surprise! I also know A lot of Different people (White,Asian,Latino,etc..) who guess what? DON'T LIKE HER EITHER! I know for a fact Black people have no reason whatsoever to be jealous. LOL! Go to any major site like People, TMZ, US & go look at the comments, they are not positive & majority of the people ARE NOT BLACK! Take your racism & negativity some where else you tool!

tp gave bk a job, so she can

tp gave bk a job, so she can focus on something positive. he's not working on a biopic because clive already said no. whit prob didn't want a biopic on her life,or he doesn't want to rehash that drama. w/out him releasing the music, her image, it can't go ahead. just like the fact that wh wasn't murdered, tp isn't out to ryde off her fame. let's be real in wh last years tp career was bigger than wh.
pp's picture

Are u really dumb enough to

Are u really dumb enough to think TP need Clive permission to do a bio. Do u know how many bio pictures & books are done without consent from the celeb or their estate. Come on now, don't be dumb your entire life. Books have already been written about Whitney over the years without her permission and they dam sure didn't ask white boy Clive. TP just want to do it right. He want the story from BK & not her drug dealers.

To The same person (S),

To The same person (S), strippers, Aspiring whore and wannabes defending this woman. You guys need a reality check about what life and integrity really is. Shame on you for putting this immoral POS on a pedestal lmao. REally? You guys defending Kim Kardashian? What is this world coming to? Glad to see others are smart and not dumb to fall for this money-making machine bunch-give-me-all-I-give-back-nothing. She dating Kanye is Karma getting back at her slowly but surley because Kanye is a LOONEY. It will end, but it will not end well.

Yall are so focused on the 'mad haters' who dont like her. Let talk about all the hoes who worship the head whore. This IS a black thing. Why? Go to tmz and look at the comments all the white people there think she's a talentless slut. When they express their opinions they aren't 'mad' or 'haters' they are just calling a spade a spade. It's only on this website that people praise tramp. Get your lives people. Lol. Lowlife lovers. Smh

Another thought......TP ain't

Another thought......TP ain't fooling no one when it comes to his real motives with BK. He is trying to get the exclusive to do a Whitney bio in the future. There will be a bunch of bootleg movies made just like they did to Elizabeth, Marilyn and Jacki O but Tyler want to do the "LADY SING THE BLUES" of them all. The one that is nominated for Oscars with the A-list star, not a lifetime knockoff. Diana Ross was nominated back in 1972 but didn't win. TP want the W.I.N. He is trying to get 1st hand account of what really went down. The 1 person there through it all with a front row sit was Bobbi K & Robin Crawford (till 2002). All the other movies will be stories told by two bid dealers & old D-list celebs Whitney use to smoke with but TP is after BK signature for exclusive rights and for her to NOT talk to no other directors or writers.

White women might be vicious

White women might be vicious but black women are some of the most insecure. Stop trying to convince everybody Kim k is using the black race. That just sounds silly. Do you know how famous this woman is? The black race could be wiped out & she'd still be just as famous. That's no shade to any race, just the truth. She's built an empire. One business savvy woman for sure. And quit saying you don't like her because of all the men she's slept with.just say you don't Want to like her so you believe Every rumour put out there (which are usually dismissed on their Reality show). Every woman in showbiz has slept around according to the media.& the thing is she's not even rumoured to be w a million men. Its just her tape that people bring up which was done In private With her mate&wasn't leaked by her. I don't even watch the show regularly & I know that.From the show. Funny that people call her trashy because this woman has more class than half of Hollywood, just looking at the way she dresses & carries herself even. I sound like a fan. lol but seriously get off Kim! Atleast have a real reason for not liking her other than something Rumoured.

Do you really think your rant

Do you really think your rant about someone you don't even know is going to change anyone's opinion about KK. FYI, there are a lot of white people who can't stand her either, so what's their excuse? Just because you like her doesn't mean everyone else has to, so please sit down and shudddup.

LOL!! Kim K continues to win

LOL!! Kim K continues to win and the haters continue to hate, that is life. Like Tyler said we only have one life and we all need to live it. Worry about your own lives, this girl is living her dreams, if her eyes closed today or tommorrow, she would have lived, loved, traveled, and fulfilled many of her dreams. Can you say the same? Boycotting the movie will do nothing, she will bring her fans with her, a new audience possibly to the movie, for every 1 of you that choose not to support it, she has at least 10 supporters that will support it. The reason why the Kardashians continue to grow and prosper is because their fan base goes out and actually support what thely do, they purchase their products, they attend their events, unlike some of you folks, you claim to stan for people like Rihanna and Ciara and Beyonce, yet when they drop an album you don't even support them, they can't even make it to number 1 yet they have millions of followers. You people just don't get it, the people that don't support them will never support them, but the ones that do are loyal and they will continue to suppor them and there is absolutely nothing that you can do about it, so sitting on the sidelines and b*tching and moaning about it is not hurting them, use your time wisely and figure out how to get yours and how to live your live sto the fullest, for God sake. That said, I will be supporting Tyler and Kim both because I have an appreciation for both.

So what your saying is that

So what your saying is that we can all have what we want in life if we bust it open on a sex tape, orchestrate a fake marriage, and deceive others in order to make our dreams come true? America, the land of opportunity...Hollyweird, the land of opportunists.
