Angela Bassett is so

Angela Bassett is so UNDERRATED in Hollywood its a shame! She deserves at least 5 Oscars...AT LEAST! Mary is ONLY 42?? HAPPY BDAY!
tori's picture

Ikr! That woman has paid her

Ikr! That woman has paid her dues and it's time she be rewarded. And to think Bey actually thought she should have won an academy award for dream girls and Cadillac Records (which her acting in CR was actually good IMO) before great actresses like Angela Bassett who's been in this game for a min, is insulting.
Crazy Sexy Cool's picture

you're a fool. Oscars are

you're a fool. Oscars are not given because of how many years you've been in Hollywood or how many films you've made- if that was the case every black actor from the 80s or 90s would have one. Martin Scorcese just got his first Oscar within the past few years after making classics like the Godfather, and Leonardo DiCaprio STILL does not have one. Sit your dumb chipmunk face down somewhere

I'm sorry, but if my career

I'm sorry, but if my career was grounded like Solo's, the last place I would be performing is at a place called Bottom Lounge to add insult to injury.

You're probably right and I

You're probably right and I wouldn't be surprised if he calls her by her first name. smhlol....

SO-LONG prolly told the poor

SO-LONG prolly told the poor boy, she & Beyonce are his sisters & Mama Tina wicked ass made her carry him inside her cuz her insides were ROTTED & Beyoncé was off BEING A STAR! Lol

I tried to be eccentric and

I tried to be eccentric and listen to Solange's music but I just don't dig it. Maybe Angela volunteered to do it? I hope Mary earned extra credit in her acting classes because she's in the spotlight with the woman who played Anna Mae Bullock!
Username's picture

And just who is going to her

And just who is going to her sold out concerts? I predict it will be Bey, Tina, Lil BoBo, and her son Juliette, and maybe their illegitimate lil brother, cuz Jay has already told Bey he ain't going. Wow it is sad to see Angela Basset having to do a Lifetime movie. Well Kudos," I THINK" to both her and Mary.

@Shay, I'm gon need for u to

@Shay, I'm gon need for u to go back to that Azealia Banks Confirms Collab with Beyoncé post & read what that TRAILER TRASH TRANNY BEE•MAN said was the reason behind why HE won't post HIS own AVATAR...that TRANSVESTIDE is DELLUSIONAL!!!!
tori's picture

@Tori, Really? So now "It"

@Tori, Really? So now "It" works for DefJam Not Even! Some DRAG QUEENS KNOW THEY CAN HAVE A WILD DELUSIONAL IMAGINATIONS! Did you read what I wrote to you under the LaLa story, I really spoke WAY TO SOON! I believe that Beema is this TROLLl called @Serious Styles that person also said they worked for Def Jam and was a 19yr old model. These people are CRAY CRAY making up lies! @Styles use to be on here 24/7 like Beema does now, this was before she made you log-in
Shay's picture

I just wrote u back about the

I just wrote u back about the LaLa situation. BEE•MAN ain't been on here 2day that much cuz EVERYTIME HE POST SUMTHIN UNDER MY COMMENT, I just say.."SIR...WHERE IS UR AVATAR?" so maybe he searchin thru DEF JAM's Facebook page tryin to STEAL SUM1 ELSE IDENTITY..IDK & IDC..HE CRAY CRAY! I don't even care WHO has a PIC & who DOESN'T...it's a BLOG, but when u go around & call ppl "NAPPY HEADED" or "COONS" or "MANLY/TRANNY" u BETTER HAVE UR OWN PIC UP, not that it matters cuz ain't NO EXCUSE for sayin sh!t like that about ANYBODY! I make fun of CELEBS like ER'BODY ELSE cuz this site is NOT A FANSITE...if celebs want to be ADORED they can go to their OWN WEBSITE! I just don't like that TRASH BEE•MAN THE TRAILER TRASH TRANNY be talkin ESPECIALLY WHEN HE GOT A WHITE LUNATIC as his AVATAR! I didn't really frequent this site as much as I do now, be4 we had to log in. I don't know who or what Furious Styles was but I think its MIGHTY STRANGE that once Kai stopped STALKIN me..like A DAY LATER, BEE•MAN turned on me...the CRAZY thing is, WE WRE KOOL up until I CORRECTED him, then I guess he got ANGRY AS HELL & started callin me a SPIC & TRANNY & SH!T & I was like "OK B!TCH, LET's GO!" All the other (2) blogs I go to it's just ppl crackin jokes & sayin sh!t about CELEBS...NOT EACH OTHER! In the words of Sweet Brown "AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!" I'ma need to call my friend Manny & ask him to make me a shirt that says that in BOLD letters, he work at a t-shirt shop..I call it the SWEAT SHOP LOL.
tori's picture

Yeah @Tori, the Kae person

Yeah @Tori, the Kae person just ALL but DISAPPEARED. Trust me I get IT LOUD & CLEAR why you had to stay on that TRANNY CUZ he came for you and so many others I noticed he stop w/ me because he wanted SOMETHING ANYTHING to CRITICIZE so he stopped because I had no AVATAR for him to INSULT! Me myself I am a very very private person I don't even have a FACEBOOK that's just how I am. I have my family and my CORE FRIENDS I SURROUND MYSELF W/ becuase I don't TRUST ALOT OF PEOPLE! I have learned the HARD WAY! I have my share of SERIOUS concerns in my life like for 1 when I was younger a man of MIDDLE EASTERN DESCENT TRIED to pull me in his car, after the FOOL ASKED ME FOR DIRECTIONS! But Thank God I SCREAMED AND KICKED UNTIL HE LET Go! I still don't TRUST those SNEAKY ASS MEN, I try hard not to hold any PREJUDICE TOWARDS MIDDLE EASTERN MEN. Another situation I was in when I dated this African Guy he was smart, and was a Pharmacist and spoke 5 different lang, and turned into my #1 real life STALKER when I decided he was not the ONE FOR ME! Last but not least when you WIN a little MONEY NEVER EVER TELL ANYONE YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY WILL STALK YOU! It was not even millions just over $100,00 and I told someone MY BIG MISTAKE NEVER EVER AGAIN but that was over 2yrs ago! In my situation it's better to be safe than sorry. Theses HATING ASS TROLLS WILL always find something to HATE ON YOU about no matter how GOOD OR NOT GOOD YOU LOOK!

OMG...TALK ABOUT CREEPSTERS

OMG...TALK ABOUT CREEPSTERS IN THE WORLD! I'm kinda a private person when it comes to my PERSONAL life which is why I never say WHERE I LIVE OR WHAT I DO/WHERE I WORK on ANY site. I have facebook, but it's mainly for my work! (I work for an advertising company) I ain't no hooker lol. I have a comfortable life, NO KIDS, NO ROOMMATES NO DRAMA & I prefer to KEEP it that way. A girlfriend of mine dated an African, he was from North Africa so he looked more Middle Eastern than "black" but he was SUPER CRAZY/POSSESSIVE & JEALOUS, I told her to get rid of that fool before she ended up buried in a ditch sum where or on an episode SNAPPED! Looks like the KOO KOO DRAG KING IS BACK LOL...DAMN IT MAN!

I've always loved the

I've always loved the Lifetime Movie Network. I'll definitely be tuning in next month. It amazes me that they can make legitimate, solid films for Black History month. Yet, BET never seems to make anything worth watching on its network. Just sayin.
