Cancellation rumors around Netflix’s hit series The Get Down are always swarming, but it has been confirmed the series will NOT be returning for a second season.

Yep this means no more Shaolin Fantastic or the epic love story that could have been Ezekiel Figuro and Mylene Cruz.  The series’ cancellation is allegedly due to its high cost–estimated to be $120 million dollars–it’s low audience number (it’s only a fifth of the viewership Orange is The New Black garners), and the show’s creator, Baz Luhrmann could not commit to the project because he is too busy.

Whether this guy was a crazed fan, police sympathizer, or even a bonafied Klansman, there should be no place for people with his sentiments. Expose this nastiness so I can burn and fester in the light. Let’s all do Chris Barr a favor, and give him the notoriety he really deserves by letting him know just what we think about his nonsense. Claudia we are with you girl! #BlackLivesMatter

Michelle Rodriguez (@MRodOfficial) Attempts to Clean Up, “Minorities shouldn’t play white superheroes” comment!

Fast & Furious” Star Michelle Rodriguez ruffled some feathers as she told TMZ that minorities should stop trying to play roles of white superheroes. Now she’s trying to do some damage control in attempt to make a completely wrong right, according to Love B. Scott.

Of course after making that bogus statement and shoving her foot in her mouth, social media came right for her and after feeling the heat, Michelle took to Facebook to clear up her comments.

“What I really meant was that I think there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology. We all get it from the same reservoir of life, the fountain of life. It doesn’t matter what culture you come from; I’m just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy, and people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology.“


Do you think Michelle meant what she said and is trying to clean it up because she’s caused a disturbance or she the cleared up remarks are her true feelings? Comment below.

Queens fire back! Derek J defends the trend of Flamboyant Black Gay Men in the media!

Derek J (l), TS Madison (c), EJ (r)

The portrayal of Black men in the media has seldom been a positive one. Thus, it is not surprising the portrayal of Blavck Gay men would be just as negative or disturbing. Recently, popular culture has portrayed a slew of gay Black men on television, however, they are not quite what you would call masculine or normal. From shows like Bravo’s “Fashion Queens” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” to E’s! “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” the portrayal of Black men is nothing short of flamboyant and almost drag queenish. One has to wonder where is the Black Gay spectrum? You can look on almost any network and find all types of white gay men from the drag queens and transexuals to closeted athletes. With the noteworthy exception of Michael Sam, this has not been the case. One New Yorker, who also happens to be Black and gay, finds himself disappointed that he cannot see himself on television. “…not all Black gay men wear heels or make up or interested in fashion…some of us just so happen to be gay and we still carry ourselves as men…” These are the words of Trent Britain Jeter, whose now infamous Facebook post sparked a war of words and opened dialogue about the portrayal of Black Gay men in media.

Trent’s post managed to find its way through the grapevine to celebrity stylist and fashion commentator, Derek J. Needless to say he was not happy and responded with the following statement via Instagram:

“Do this post was brought to my attention by@thefabdarylj and the points made in this post are valid and well understood, but it amazes me when people pick and choose what they want to support and stand for. You don’t want to support a feminine gay man in media because you feel that it’s not a good representation of the black gay community. But you will choose to support a woman that has raped the black gay culture of their lingo, fashion sense and beauty creativity. Let me even take it a step further you choose to support the rapper that doesn’t even see your lifestyle and a good representation of the black community as a whole. Before I was on tv I was and still a gay black business owner with a successful salon, that mentors black gay youth and gives back to the community. So with all that said I want to challenge the “masculine” black man that doesn’t like the way that gay black men are being represented in media to stand up and do something about it……. Ooooooo I forgot you didn’t want anyone to know you where gay.”

All Hail The Queen! Renee Lawless dishes on her Past, Life, & “The Haves & The Have Nots!”

Tyler Perry knew he had a hit when “The Haves and The Have Nots,” (THAHN) debuted on OWN in 2013.

Each of the cast members portray different, yet realistic characters that are so “in your face,” that you cannot help but love them.

On THAHN, she is the powerful wife of Jim Cryer, mother to Wyatt and Amanda, and worth fifty million dollars. She loves her family, but keeps them at a distance, because she knows she cannot truly trust any of them. Her poised and cold demeanor, however, hides a woman in pain who is fighting to keep her head above water.  With all these bold and powerful attributes, you just know the real woman portraying her has to be equally as outstanding. You would be right! Renee Lawless is a force to be reckoned with. From the stage to Silver Screen, she has sung, acted, and won her way into our hearts.
