Dear Chrisette Michele

Dear Chrisette Michele,

Where do I even begin sis…no, nope, nah, no ma’am, NO? What we are not going to do is try and play the victim card when every fan, friend, and foe pleaded, begged and warned you about your inauguration performance. It was a choice you made to “be a bridge” and to stress to Trump and his supporters that “this is what we look like”.

Girl, they know what we look like, that’s kind of the problem. While I get the idea of “being a bridge”, perhaps we would have understood this excuse coming from a bigger artist or someone with a bigger platform. You needed a check, that the sole reason why you accepted. Albums aren’t selling that well these days, especially for your genre of music. I get it but own that.

Now you want to come out and start this pity party, I’m sorry but that is what it looks like. Your label dropped you when you submitted your latest album ‘Strong Black Woman’…oh really, now we want to profess our strength. What exactly are you telling us this for? Because you think we are going to buy it. Because you think that we are going to rally in support of you? In a time where we have Colin Kaepernick risking his livelihood to stand up against injustice do you think that anyone will give you a pass for folding the way that you did?

And if that wasn’t enough you post a picture of your alleged miscarried fetus. Have you lost your entire mind? Don’t post that then say you’re not looking for pity. That was incredibly low. I feel bad you lost your child, that is something that I wouldn’t wish upon anyone but posting that image was to garner sympathy towards you as a person versus the situation.
Then while I’m praying that you run out of battery on your phone you tweet Tina ‘Someone Stuff A Sock In My Mouth’ Campbell. Implying that you have both been “choice shamed”.

You both made a choice, granted a choice that I find stupid, and now you’re dealing with the consequences of that choice. Tina wanted to refer to a man that has sexually assaulted women, mocked the handicapped and defended Neo-Nazis as a man with good “Christian values”. I must have missed that part in Sunday school.

You are both grown woman, it’s time to take ownership of your actions. You made a choice and now people are making a choice not to deal with you. Accept the ‘L’, get a better publicist and try to work out a game plan to reinvent yourself…if you can.

 

Or I hear Fox News is always looking for a token black person…

 

What do you think of Chrisette Michele’s ‘choice shaming’ claims?

Fix It Jesus! Mo’nique Asks For A Boycott of Netflix After Declining Their Small Offer For Comedy Special

mm

Published

on

Mo’nique is shedding light on Hollywood again, but this time the light is a little dim. The Academy Award winner took to Instagram to voice her disappointment in Netflix’s abysmal offer for a comedy special. She claims they offered her $500,000 and that was nowhere near what Amy Schumer was offered.

 

“Hey my loves, I am asking that you stand with me and boycott Netflix for gender bias and color bias. I was offered a $500,000 deal last week to do a comedy special. However, Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, $20 million. Then Amy Schumer went back and renegotiated 2 more million dollars because she said, ‘I shouldn’t get what the men are getting, they’re legends. However, I should get more’ and Netflix agreed.

Still, don’t believe it… take a look at the video for yourself.

#BOYCOTT#NETFLIX FOR #COLORBIAS AND #GENDERBIAS. PLEASE STAND WITH ME. I LOVE US.

A post shared by Mo’nique (@therealmoworldwide) on

OMG

 

My reaction

Let us not be petty. Mo’nique deserves more than $500,000, honestly. She has proven herself despite being blackballed in Hollywood (allegedly).

Mo’nique isn’t entirely wrong for pushing back against the offer — we do know there is some bias when it comes to women in the industry, and she is a black woman, so she gets it twice as hard.

If it were me, I would’ve taken the money and kept it moving. Let’s be realistic — Netflix isn’t going anywhere, and a boycott won’t be happening for something like this. We aren’t cutting the chord. Plus, Netflix has been offering us some good, quality content lately.

Mo’nique shared the video on Instagram and barely garnered 50,000 views in 5 hours. It took The Shade Room to help it get some attention. Netlix gambled and now Monique is gambling but she has way more to lose.

 

Should Mo’nique have taken the money and minded her business, or does she have a point, even if isn’t very sharp?

Offset:”I Cannot Vibe With Queers” While Wearing Queer Designers

mm

Published

on

Fellow Migos rapper Offset just keeps running into the mess in 2018! The rapper has made headlines for cheating on his fiance of 90 days and now he can add another headline for a verse dropped referring to him not vibing with queers.

He was featured on Boss Life with YFN Lucci. You can hear the song in its entirety below but the “I cannot vibe with queers.” starts at 0:23.

.

.

.

I will never understand how rappers spew homophobic comments and lyrics like this but continue to wear queer designers and even mention them in their songs. Why even mention you don’t vibe with queers in a song? Cardi B get your man.

Was the verse necessary? Or should we not expect much from someone who records themselves cheating?

 

UPDATE: Offset has now released an apology via Instagram.

 

 

Considering the incident his group Migos had with performing with drag queens during Katy Perry’s SNL performance, I’m not buying it. Not to forget about the group’s comment on ILoveMackonnen the rapper who came out last year. “The world is fucked up. This world is not right.”

 

 

How many more times is the group together and separately going to apologize for homophobic comments like this?

Singer Seal Reads Fox News, Stacey Dash and Everyone Else

mm

Published

on

On Friday, January 12, 2018, singer Seal took to his social media to read Fox News, former video vixen Stacey Dash and every other critic of his January 10th Instagram post. In that post, which Seal re-posted a meme of television mogul Oprah Winfrey with dethroned Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein with the meme reading; “When you have been part of the problem for decades…but suddenly they all think you are the solution”. This came days after Winfrey received her historic Golden Globe honor and gave her much-publicized acceptance speech referencing the #MeToo and Time’s Up movement.

In the wake of his post Seal found himself in a publicity storm with Fox News discussing the merit of his post as well as black Twitter tearing the singer apart, calling him everything from an “Uncle Tom” to a “coon”.

After two days it would seem like Seal had finally had enough and posted a video letting everyone know that he was not attacking Winfrey. In the three-minute video, he refers to Harvey Weinstein as merely the “pig in the picture”. He explains that re-posting the meme was not an attempt to come for Winfrey but rather him calling out the “hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior in Hollywood”.

To further support Seal’s point, in an email obtained from the Motion Picture Editor’s Guild, they stated that the “recent public reports about sexual harassment demonstrate what many of us have long known about the entertainment industry – that discrimination and sexual harassment exists and, in many instances, has been tolerated and/or ignored”.

Seal went on to state that if these Hollywood men looked anything like him they would be facing more than being merely fired. That their firing isn’t real justice for those who have been sexually abused and harassed, these abusers need to be charged.

Before his video ended he addressed Fox New for trying to use him as a pawn against Winfrey and finally coming for the station’s favorite puppet Stacey Dash, advising Dash to keep his name out her mouth and commenting that she can stay living in the Sunken Place.

 

 

Do you agree with Seal?
