Sad time for entertainment. The legend, Michael Jackson, has passed and don't forget Miss Farrah... not much to say but rest in peace. If Prince goes anytime soon, LAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWD - I will be no be no more good. One thing -- people forget how great of a vocalist Michael was... check out that voice from 44 to to 1:00.
I am really excited about the film Life is Hot in Cracktown, which stars Kerry Washington and Evan Ross. Washington plays a transsexual prostitute with a drug addiction and Ross is a hardcore gangster in a city ravaged by the crack-cocaine epidemic. By the way - if I am correct, this is the first time a black actress (biological female) is playing a trans character - can anyone confirm?
Anyway, I'll be interviewing both of them later this week - please submit your questions in the comments. Check out the clip below of Kerry tucking...
Sorry for the infrequent postings -- but you can always me reach at my film blog over at BET.com. In the meantime, check out my interview with Vanessa Williams for The Advocate. Miss V was everything one would imagine. She talked her history with the gay community, Carrie Prejean and more. Her new album, The Real Thing, is in stores today.
