Falling into something a little more comfortable

It Feels Good...

It Feels Good…

Like The QUEEN LATIFAH SHOW. Have you been tuning in to the daytime flava? It’s pretty good. Queen is a pisces, so she’s a chameleon by sign rite therefore, that makes her a natural at talking to anyone about anything.

I love the show. This week she had Zoe Saldana on the show, which is interesting because I’ve been wondering whatever happened to the Nina Simone biopic project? I have always been a fan of Zoe’s work and was very verbal about not agreeing with her choice to play Nina Simone in the unauthorized biopic, sometime back. I’m not sure whatever happened to that project, but I want to be clear, that I absolutely love Zoe Saldana as well as Queen Latifah for “putting her on” (giving Zoe a social conversation platform) this week on The Queen Latifah Show – it was some good stuff.

Zoe is preggo with twins! Did you know that? Well, I did not. Did you know that she is starring in THE BOOK OF LIFE and that it is in theaters right now? I did not know that either. Not because I’m not keeping up with the beautiful latina actress from Queens, but because, well… these days, movie trailers get far too little advertisement time on television. When did we decide that movie trailer enticement was no longer necessary on tv as much as it is online and on youtube? Nothing is worse than being force fed a random movie trailer, while desperately trying to get clarification on how to fix an editing software glitch via a youtube HOW TO video.  However, I would love to see a movie trailer on television during a commercial break of SCANDAL, EXTANT, or HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Bring back enticing movie trailers to network television dear Hollywood. If for no other reason than to increase your bottom line.  After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

There are a lot of things we would not know of unless it were advertised or unless someone told us, which is why I watch The Queen Latifah Show, The View, The Talk, and as soon as I’ve an additional free daytime DVR slot, I’ll be recording The REAL TALK on BET. Are you watching it? I happened to drop in mid episode one morning during a channel surf and saw Tamar Braxton, Tamera Morrow and Loni Love sitting at the table and it caught my attention. BET is boldly going where no other talk show has gone before and has added a 3rd black woman at the talk show table format. The View was the progressive shiz when they put two black women on deck, but 3? BET is serious about definition. 😉

Daytime TV is doing alright
Diversifying the view beyond mostly white.

I see Rosie Perez is poised pretty nice
as Whoopi continues to serve insight.

It’s important to have diversity within ‘talk show glory,’
or I might not have come-up on Zoe Saldana’s rooted story.

No one has been interviewing Zoe on any kind of show,
so when I think of The Queens courtesy, I yell a resounding “YO!”

Zoe is beautiful, Zoe is bright.
Zoe’s a huge talent in the incoming tide.

Zoe is being offered all types of roles,
some lack match, but most are gold.

The game isn’t free and by all accounts it must be sold.
The Queen did her thing on daytime tv and hosted the talk of Zo’.

The season of FALL is upon us and I’m happy to be Falling into something more comfortable,
I’m Qui
always glad to talk-it-out with thee, because news stations be on ‘that dumpster bull.

Are You Not Entertained

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, TV Shows on March 19, 2014 at 6:19 am

Lion tamer — I am so very entertained, and long after the cameras have stopped rolling. Obviously.

So the Nina Simone biopic never did get the green light to hit the air,
but worry not, for to Zoe Saldana, Hollywood remains favorably fair.

The industry buzz is, that she’s up – to star in a different biopic.
This time Zoe will portray the banging hay-day of Ms. Eartha Kitt.

It seems the announcement of Eartha’s biopic didn’t cost the project as much
loss-of-love due to the non-black-principle-role-casting stuff.

Yet, for all of the still shots from the Nina biopic – one would think the film would be ready,
but when you don’t poll family and friends at the projects begin, things could easily become less steady.

Speaking of family, Master P is having trouble with his estranged wife,
as she gives statement to the press that she’s living a paupers life.

She and Master P are no longer an item – this fact is not hid.
It is also true, that Mrs. P was the guardian of 4 of their kids.

And something else about ‘needing support’ and someone said ‘no way,’
then someone stormed out yelling, ‘you’ll rue the day!’ – I paraphrase, 

but don’t take my word for it, the horses mouth always says it better.
Curious as to who said what? Read Master P’s open letter:
Master P's OpenLetter

Now Master P may not get out of this so easily. After all she is his wife.
And by the law of many states, community property is a part of his life.

Chris Brown has no children to support and that’s a good thing,
right now he needs to self preserve and concentrate on his ‘sing.’

It seems he and Justin Bieber have quite the testosterone motor,
the two of them on a reluctant whim, are filling Cali’s court and taxing quota.

Entertainment is all around us, whether behind closed doors or in the public square.
It is constantly being broadcasted over radio and television air.

No matter how much air space we utilize mayhem is always on the rise.
And I’m more than a little concerned about the plane that we’ve lost in the skies.

Where is Malaysia flight 370? Where in the world could they have gone?
Did a sky portal open up and take them or did it land in brush, overgrown?

Could the pilot and/or co-pilot have pulled some sort of theft and hostage situation?
This is turning out to be a real mystery page-turner – I’m so following the investigation.

I don’t know yo!  I really don’t know,
but Diddy’s babys moma may have to go.

She’s in a bit of a crunch, a financial bind,
to the tune of a ‘$622K back mortgage‘ chime.

Much like Master P’s wife, but Diddy never married this lady.
She was just the woman he knocked up and then put up, because she had his baby.

The baby is 21 years old now. The baby is fully – a grown man,
And Diddy doesn’t feel responsible to put more dough on that piece of land.

She thought he ‘wouldn’t stop – because he couldn’t stop,’
but that was just a line he used to build chic stock.
Gosh her past really rocked!

I’m not being cold, I’m just making fun.
I’d be thrilled if Diddy broke her off some.

I’d be thrilled if Master P spoiled his wife too,
and I’d be giddy if politics were based on truths.

Oh you! For a Feel Good Feeling – I tend to go far,
even farther than folks do, for that Klondike bar.

But I don’t make the news, I’m just chopping it up with you,
I’m Qui
it’s HUMP DAY baby – thanks so much for coming thru. Ooo!
