Thanks so much for posting this. I count myself as one of the non-White women who feels alienated by much of the content on Jezebel. Today’s a day I’m glad I dipped my toe back in here. Roxanne Shanté is an important part of American music history and I will watch the hell out of this. Hip-hop has strayed so far from…
I love this with all my heart, even when the side-eyes rolled in for mentioning Oprah not publicly offering anything for the marches we’ll had for years.
All respect bruh - but they look like you cut the footies off some denim pj’s when you were 7 and just....kept them. And thats not acid-wash, right? Your family is beautiful tho. And they obviously love you if they didn’t say something. Lol.
I walked by a condo under construction a few weeks ago. They had promotional stuff printed on the barricades lining the block, y’now, so no dust gets in to any passer-bys kinda deal. So this one day they had some canvassers outside asking people if they wanted to be invited to some evening thingy where they talk about…
“While it is true that not every single musician who ever played rock and roll was inspired by Rosetta Tharpe, it is also true that there is not a single rock musician playing in the year 2018 doing something that Rosetta Tharpe wasn’t doing 80 years ago.”
Who frickin’ cares if they are? And if they are it’s cuz we’re due.
The head of Marvel Studio’s called it their best film to date and it’s critically ranked as the number 2 or 3 top super hero movie ever made.
I wonder how many people who signed that petition are now wearing TimesUp pins? I also thought Brett Ratner and Harvey Weinstein were the ones that spearheaded that whole effort?
The thing I feel like I gained from it is empathy towards people who have made mistakes.
Nah but I know what assistants make and they are pulling down well over the average income in my state.
Obviously she is making a calculated choice here. But let’s not pretend that the calculations she’s making (tonnes of skin exposed, no jacket, big ol’ thigh-high slit in February weather) are even close the calculations the dudes are making (comfy, warm layers appropriate to February weather).
more than 100 filmmakers and actors—including Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Wim Wenders, Tilda Swinton and Wong Kar Wai—signed the petition.
I remember when that petition was making the rounds. I did something completely crazy at the time - because I didn’t know the exact details of the case - I actually READ both Polanski’s confession and the victim’s statement before expressing an opinion. Nuts, right? I mean who has 10 minutes to spare?
Is anyone surprised that Natalie Portman supported Polanski in the past? She’s always come across as condescending and hypocritical.
JLaw knows exactly what’s going on. She hates it, and all of the black dresses in the world won’t change things. In 35 years her memoirs (and they will be a-plenty) will compel 20 somethings to feel a weak spark of rebellion.
Lol, I just read online.
Unless Marvel Studios snatches the xmen out of the incapable hands of Fox Movie Studios, they’ll keep miscasting Ororo as a light skinned wilting flower instead of staying true to her storyline and respecting her as the African queen and goddess she is!
I feel like execs choose to see what’s commercial. If there are five black people hanging out together, marketing execs will rip off anything about their interactions and sell them for a profit. But now they need to actually use black people, their stories, have them drive the narrative but they thinkthat this will be…
Yeah, this is one of 3 things, she released the tape herself because the Kardashian money is running out, Kris Jenner released it so that she wouldn’t have to write a personal check to Chyna, or her boyfriend is looking to cash in on her messy life. I think revenge porn is horrible. I’m just not sure this is not a…
