Face it people, Black Lives Matter is not going anywhere; especially when men like Philando Castile are being gunned down by policemen on Facebook Live. We are not for here for the complaints against Black Lives Matter or the movement and apparently neither is one Hollywood actress.

Halle Berry says she is tired of hearing people complain about Black Lives Matter and is asking, “Well, What Are You Doing About That?”

he Oscar-winning actress said, “In my world, I get so tired of people complaining about, ‘Oh black lives matter,’ and they pontificate and pontificate about it, and I say, ‘Well, what are you doing about that? It may not seem significant to you, but that’s how we start. Have you called your local politicians, have you written a letter?’”

Appearing at the Cannes Lions Girls’ Lounge in conversation with founder Shelley Zalis, Berry continued, “When they say they’ve done nothing, I say, ‘Well, don’t talk to me … because you are part of the problem, because you are sitting here spewing negativity and complaining.’”

She added, “I don’t have time for people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.”

Berry has been taking meetings at Cannes Lions with top tech firms and marketers as she prepares to relaunch her website and social forum titled Hallewood.

The actress was spotted meeting with Snapchat executives Wednesday to discuss Hallewood, which launches next month, and on which she plans to post stories and videos, connect directly with her fans, and start a discussion on a wide variety of topics.

We agree with Halle one hundred and ten percent! If you are tired of hearing and seeing social injustices do something to end the issue. It is so easy to sit back and complain instead of actually giving a damn and putting in the work to bring about positive change. Humanity we have got to do better–MUCH BETTER!

The Transformers are back! Yep it is time to witness another slap down between the heroic Autobots and their human allies against the villainous Decepticons.

Quintessa

The story picks up where the last film left off with Prime heading to Cybertron to meet his maker–literally. He arrives on his dying world to meet Quintessa, a female transformer and his creator. With a slap she seemingly brainwashes him into helping her revive Cyberton at Earth’s expense. Back on Earth, war rages between the world’s militaries and Transformers as waves of them continue to come to the planet. All Transformers, including, the Autobots are deemed enemies. Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), continues to stand by his Autobot comrades, finding refuge in a junkyard on Indian territory by “hiding in plain sight.” However, uneasy alliances are formed when an ancient Cybertronian staff that grants its wielder immense power comes into play. Quintessa wishes to use it to restore Cybertron while Cade, Bumblebee, and a few ancient Transformers must come together to literally keep worlds from colliding!

Celebrity romances come a dime a dozen and for some Hollywood hobnobbers, the constant change in significant others is more so like a sport rather than an emotional bond. In case you missed it, one of our favorite Kardashian sisters Kourtney has been living life in the spotlight lately – showcasing her happiness and her new boy toy. That’s right, boy toy, as in not going back to her long-term boyfriend and the father of her three children Scott “Lord” Disick. And while I love Scott’s bluntness at times, I’m happy Kourt is venturing back into the dating game.

Since today is Monday, I’m blessing you all with a new face to call #Bae, Kourtney’s new boo Younes Bendjima is our #CelebrityCrush for today.
