Here is a video that features swatches of my MAC lip products. I also swatched two covergirl lipstains and a Maybelline lipstick in the color Are you Red-Dy.
When I first heard NYC radio host, Ed Lover, suggested that Gabby Sidibe would wear sweet potato pants, the imagery that him comment evoked for me made me chuckle. Now I'm almost embarrassed that I ever fed into the jokes made about this young actress. Howard Stern, Jamie Fox and others have make jokes about Gabby's weight and appearance. Like Gabby's mom said, we all have eyes, so obviously she knows, like we all do, that she is overweight. So why the barrage of mean spirited jokes?
What upset me most was when I first the above picture of Gabby Sidibe being disrespectfully groped by Chris Rock as she walked on stage to accept her NAACP award. When asked to comment on the situation she said it was her fault because she is so hot Chris couldn't resist. However, she did mention that her father was less than pleased with the antics of ol Rock. Perhaps Rock though this inappropriate action was his declaration to the world that he thought she was attractive even if everyone else thought otherwise. Regardless of his intentions, no one asked his crippled fingers to caress any part of Gabby's body so why did he feel it was ok to do that? I couldn't imagine him doing that to any other actress who would have walked on stage to accept an award. So what may Chris think he could get away with this behavior? In years to come if someone where to do that to his daughters, would be he so quick to laugh it off? I was thoroughly disgusted with him. And to think people were going crazy over Kanye's award show behavior but this seemed to have been swept under the rug. Yeah yeah I mentioned the Kanye thing again lol but is this not a more serious offense?
Overall I'm just sick of all teh Gabby jokes, let the lady enjoy her time in the light and move on to other movies or whatever is in store for her.
Please weigh in.....(no pun intended)
I just wanted to quickly share my must see movie list:
1)The Karate Kid featuring Will & Jada Smith's little boy Jaden, Taraji P. Henson, and Jackie Chan. If anyone has ever seen the old Karate Kid movies you may be interested in the remake of this classic! Little Jaden looks like he worked so hard to get his moves down and he is quite the little actor. Jackie Chan is simply amazing when it comes to his coordination and special move so I can't wait to see him too. I love the range of characters played by Taraji, so count me in when this movie hits the theaters.
2) Why did I get married too?
With an island setting and all of the original characters, I am ready to watch the followup to one of Tyler Perry's best flicks.
3) Just last week Friday I saw the trailer for Just Wright. I enjoy the work of director Sannai Hamri and I have come to expect good work from her. I have to tell you that as soon as I saw the movie poster with Queen Latifah playfully nestled up with spoken word artist/ rapper Common I was thinking- HUH? I've seen Latifah play the best friend or sidekick to the woman who falls in love but she is never really the main event. In Brown Sugar mos Def couldn't get enough of Latifah's character but the main story featured Sanna Lathan. Ok Ok on Living single Latifah did have her own love story line but never in the movies. I'm happy that Sanna hamri had the good sense and foresight to envision Latifah in such a role. This has nothing to do with her rumored personal life but Latifah looks like she could take Common in a fist fight so i was concerned with the pairing of these two in the movie. Nevertheless, I think sanna pulled it off brilliantly because it works! She isn't forcing Latifah to play some girly girl (not that she couldn't do it if she wanted to) but instead Latifah plays a down home, almost tomboy who can also wear a little black dress and look great. LOVE IT and I can't wait to see this film.
Which films will you be watching this season?
