Straight Outta Compton Slays Box Office!


60.2 million was the final number after the movie Straight Outta Compton premiered the weekend of August 14th. The movie has since grossed over 160 million. That number surpasses Eminem's 8 Mile, and Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious B.I.G.

Plot Summary

In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music. Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural rebels-armed only with their lyrics, swagger, bravado and raw talent-stood up to the authorities that meant to keep them down and formed the world's most dangerous group, N.W.A. And as they spoke the truth that no one had before and exposed life in the hood, their voice ignited a social revolution that is still reverberating today. - Written by Universal Pictures

If you haven't seen it, put this movie on your to do list. It is a must see

Teyana Taylor attacked by director of

"Gangs of Roses 2"


"Teyana Taylor, Amber Rose and Claudia Jordan" are starring in the remake of "Gangs of Roses" part 2 of a 2003 Western movie that featured LisaRaye, Monica Calhoun, Stacey Dash and Lil Kim. Amber Rose recently spoke about how she snagged the role of a bounty hunter in the movie saying......

“Well, Jean-Claude is the director and he’s friends with my lawyer – he approached my lawyer about having me in the movie. I read the script and I was like, ‘Hell yeah,’ ’cause I’m playing a bounty hunter. So I’m like the bad ass that goes and tries to catch all the girls that are, like, doing bank jobs. You know, it’s kinda hard for me to play like — I’m actually a butch lesbian in the movie, so, yeah, I was just like around Wiz and the boys and I’m just trying to sit like them and use their mannerisms and stuff.

Now about this Jean-Claude director, he has what I would like to call an unclean reputation!! Apparently Teyana Taylor was complaining of a toothache and needed to go when she tried to tell the director this she was called a bitch and then slapped......... Say what?? My first thought was "That must be part of the movie" until Teyana spoke to "Global Grind" and told the incident in detail.

Honestly at this point you know how when you're just tired of all the drama, I’m just so over it and what that story (TMZ) sounds like, honestly it sounds like he was trying to promote his movie, that’s all that is. At the end of the day you don’t put your hands on any female, it was very unprofessional. That whole environment was very unprofessional, very inappropriate. It was just things that my eyes shouldn’t have seen. For him to put his hands on me was really hurtful. I don’t have a dad, I never had a dad and I ain't about to have one today. I have never had a man raise his hand at me. It’s very emotional for me, it’s a very sensitive subject and at the end of the day, right is right and wrong is wrong. You never put your hands on a female. Period.

When I came on set there was no food, there was no hair stylist, no make-up and the trailer was the size of my tub. I had to get my agent and my mom, who is my manager, involved and then we started getting hair and make up, but that only lasted for one day. He was just mad because I came in there and he felt that I was about my business and he didn’t like that and it felt like he already had a grudge against me. I was really supposed to only film for five days. The day me and him got into that altercation, that was day seven. Out of the kindness of my heart I came to do extra scenes for him so he would have an ending to his movie.

On that day, my face was very, very swollen because of a problem with my tooth. That tooth thing was no joke. I could’ve died right there on set and he wouldn’t have even cared. That’s the point because he was more worried about himself. It was about him wanting to get his movie done so it was like, forget her tooth, her face is swollen but I want her to film more parts and I really don’t care if her face is swollen. He didn’t care and it took him to ignore my illness more than three times for me to finally raise my voice. I walked up to him and I was like -- I walked to him crying, like my tooth is really hurting, my face is getting worse, I really have to go and he was like "Yeah okay … whatever..." He turned around and kept going about his business. So I raised my tone and I said look, I can't wait a minute, I can't wait two minutes, I can’t wait a second, I really, really need to go. He turned around and he said 'Don’t f*cking scream at me b*tch' and smacked his hand across my face and from there I defended myself.

Here's a tip that was sent to the "YBF" about the woman beater (Did I just write that?) Ooops, I meant to say director :) happy

Ask your Black actress friends about Jeanclaude Lamarre. He is known for sh*tty straight to dvd movies, but NOTORIOUS in Hollywood for sleeping with young girls and promising them roles in movies, even though he is married with 2 small children. He has gotten into a fight before on a David E. Talbert production years ago in NY. He his a FEMALE co-star. Even in college he was notorious for fighting and stealing money from his school. Here is the NY Times article about him swindling money from CUNY. If you have any Black actress friends that you are close to, ask them about this guy. I was not on that set, but I am willing to bet money this dude hit her first. In fact the producer on that roses movie is 22 and has been one of his many sidechicks for YEARS. And I don't wish to have my email address known, for fear of retaliation from this guy. You have no idea!

SN: I smell a Shug Knight situation!! I know you want a gig but you need to run Amber run, Wiz is too small to protect you!! Just joking Wiz, you know I'm on your level..... :) happy

The Help" Tops Box Office

This Weekend (Video)


The movie "The Help" came in first this past weekend over "Planet of the Apes" with a strong 20 million plus making it a profit of 71.3 million in just 12 days!!

Plot Summary Set

in Mississippi during the 1960s, Skeeter (Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives -- and a Mississippi town -- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Davis), Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up -- to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories -- and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly -- and unwillingly -- caught up in the changing times.

Police Academy Actor and

Former NFL Player Dies



Legendary NFL defender Bubba Smith passes away at age 66Former NFL defensive end and longtime television and movie actor Charles Aaron "Bubba" Smith was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday. Coroner's reports have not yet been released, but according to the Los Angeles Times, it is believed that Smith died of natural causes. He will be remembered for many things but my favorite was his role in Police Academy!

He played for three teams — the Colts, Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers, appeared in two Pro Bowls and was named First-Team All-Pro in 1971. Smith played in two Super Bowls — Super Bowl III, which the Colts lost to the New York Jets in an enormous upset, and Super Bowl V, which the Colts won with a last-second field goal against the Dallas Cowboys. Smith retired after the 1976 season, having played in 111 regular-season games.

After his football career ended, Smith became perhaps even more well-known as an actor. He struck gold in the "Police Academy" series of movies, playing the hyper-strong Moses Hightower and providing a series of riotous slapstick scenes.
