Best In Black Celebrity News & Gossip; Urban Since 2007

Gabrielle Union & White Paparazzi

According to Gabrielle Union black blogs make up things about her because the paparazzi and white media could care less about black actors:

And now because everyone is clamoring for tidbits, the bigger gossip sites and even mainstream entities are picking up on it. No fact-checking, no nothing. And in one week’s time, there were like five different dudes, a baby—I’m a homewrecker. In literally seven days. I can’t point the finger at the White media. They don’t care about us. Paparazzi are not staked out in front of any of our houses. They are not going through our garbage because they don’t care about us in that way. So when you hear crap about us, it is coming from our own community, which hurts…In the next breath, they’ll complain on the blogs that we don’t have enough Black stars. Well, you rip us to shreds every two seconds from our nose to the weave to the clothes to the shoes to the ashy ankles.

I wonder who’s taking these pictures, could it be the paparazzi? Is that Gabrielle Union smiling and soaking up all the attention from the photographers? I think black blogs support black actors and promote their movies in a way that mainstream media does not. I don’t care if you are famous or not, if you have “ashen” ankles, people are going to talk. So, I understand your gripe, but honestly black blogs have done more good for you career than you’d think, and a thank you goes a long way. Just like you claim the blogs do, you have only pointed out the negative side of blogging, and have totally forgot about the fan bases created, and the endless FREE promotions of black films, books, music, and media, not always picked up on Extra and other mainstream sources.

  1. …she needs to stop. Celebrity is a double-edged sword. She should learn that and move along-!

  2. I guesss she thinks that Black bloggers have satelights that they operate from their computes which can take pictures from space, in order to get those pictures.

    When they show the Paparazzi following celebrities, I scarecly see a Black one in the bunch.

  3. Gabrielle is such a flake and I really wish she would stop b_tchin’ about some mess that she has no control over. What she has to understand is that black people ain’t got time to be runnin’ after nobody for some photos; that is stuff crazy white folks do because they are fascinated by the lives of strange people.

    Rather than to chase you down with cameras Gabby, we will just talk about you on the blogs, but at least you are getting the free publicity wench, so chill out and enjoy it while it lasts because when you are a has-been, you’ll be askin; “What happened to all of my black bloggers!?”

  4. Talk about bitin’ the hand…
    I don’t appreciate her making reference to ‘black bloggers’ like we are all of the same mindset. Some post negative some positive. Just as some actresses/actors do television, some only film and others stage and some only do porn flicks.

  5. Amen on all the free publicity for her….from now on I may think twice.

  6. There is some truth to what she says about white media having no interest in black actors or stars unless there is some major cross over appeal. I’m a photographer in las vegas and I am also the only one of color and from my experience I can tell you most of these PR hacks couldn’t tell you who Gabrielle Union is. As far comments go you are better off not reading them if you want to keep your sanity

  7. Gabrielle Union….aka Nicki to family… is only speaking truth. I am a relative and I know she only tries to bring awareness to the black communities on their destructive behaviors. All races have some sort of destructive behavior. The blogging she is referring to may be getting her free publicity, but how would you like it if you were a well known person that was trying to make a difference in the world and people spread untruth about you. The untruth defamed you. No one would appreciate that. Also, it is true that white Hollywood is not infatuated with minority actors as they are with their own. Basically this world has not changed much and never really will. That is all she is basically saying. And as for those making comment that she smiled for the paparazi … hey why not… wouldnt you? No how about you act a fool so they can have something to talk about. Just like those bloggers spreading gossip. Love ya Nicki….Holla

  8. Gabrielle is that you posing as your cousin.

    Who ever you really are, the point is she turned around and defamed the entire black blogosphere. If she has an issue with particular bloggers, then she should take it up with those particular bloggers.

    The second point is she says that she should never be criticized just because she’s Black. Now that’s just ridiculous. Nobody’s above reproach; get the hell out of here.

    She’s acting flacky and all she did was get herself talked bad about some more.

  9. Well “Gabrielle’s Cousin”, I can tell you that I don’t make up rumors, I get my information from mainstream sites, and photo wire services that the paparazzi subscribe to. I understand her not liking negative press, but at the same time I don’t think we should patronize her and pretend that we don’t see certain things. Sometimes negative press is a good thing, and it shows you how others may view you or your actions. I think it’s safe to say we all have been talked about, and with some of us there’s no publicity or high-value checks attached, it’s just reality. If she wants to have more positive press then she should do more community service and hire a person to take those photographs. As all celebrities, she has the right to correct things published about her in media. If she sees something that is a misprint, any respectable blogger or press personnel will post her statement. But don’t label us all the same.

    She is welcome to e-mail us about any mis-info we have published, and I guarantee her statement overrides anything published. If she’d like, she can do an interview with me, and she can explain her recent comments, and share some of the positive things she does with us. Remember: “You catch more bees with honey than with vinegar”

  10. ‘Gabby’s Cousin’ needs to sit the heck down with their stankin’ a**!

    Don’t be coming over here defending your “cousin” when you could be doing something more valuable with your time like helping her find better movie roles.

    Have you been on the other million and one “black” blogs to defend your peoples!? You really should get a life if you are, because people are gonna talk and there is not much that you can do but sit back and pout or just ignore what you see.

    Holla atcha boy!

  11. I have every right to defend my sister, but she speaks out the truth! She really hated the fact that some blogs on the net were really criticizing here and instead she took it out on mostly all the black blogs. She accepted the fact that some were straight up honest and truthful about her, but the rumors being passed down was not acceptable. Nickie loves the fact that she’s being talked about, but its just that she wants some part of her life just for her! I do know that fact that I have no right to be saying this to anyone and I apologize if it hurted anyones feeling.
    Sanaa Should have never shown the blogs to nickie. all I know one thing for sure is that Gabrielle is not scared to speak her mind out.

    BTW Her real nickname in the family is Nickie!

  12. Well, I think Gabrielle got her point across.
    Just because someone takes a picture with a male friend doesn’t mean that they are dating. C’mon, this is America; we need to be more open-minded than that. And so what she likes to party? Does that really have anything to do with her integrity and what she stands for? I know I love to go out and have a good time. I’m a professional, a responsible mother and a reliable friend. I read those stories about her sometimes and laugh. They are so hateful that it makes you wonder why would someone thrive in destroying someone else’s image. Best of lucks to Gaby and I can’t wait to see her on the big screen in 2008 in Starship Dave!

  13. okay ya’ll need to leave gabrielle union alone!!!! thats my girl you’re talkin junk about and i dont appreciate that!!!! so why dont you think about what you want to say before u say it thanks!!!!!!!!!!

  14. To Gabrielle’s cousin and sister: Nobody is going to appreciate the violation or invation of their privacy or business, but when your high profile that’s more of a reason why you would want to keep your nose clean. Why are you putting her family name on these dum a** blogs??? Now your asking for it…wait til you see what they are going to have to say next. You’ll shouldn’t give people that much pleasure.

    It’s a lil true though…she is flaky! But that doesn’t give anybody the right to dog walk her!

    For instance, one day Miss Union is hosting an event to give young girls in our (black) community self-esteem or the ability to see their “self worth” and then days later she’s partying. OK we get it! She enjoys life! Not to compare but you don’t see Halle Berry, Vanessa Williams, and others who are successful in white hollywood carrying themselves that way. And yet she questions “Why she is always in a black film”. Let her live…

    I like her style from what she conveys in movies, interviews, and fashion. I am very impressed of how in tune she is with her people but I am just as much disappoinnted that she used the majority of her article in Essence to respond to these low lifes.I thought she was so much more confident than that :-(
    The people writing this negative stuff about you are obsessed with your lifestyle. These are the same tackheads that are going to see your movies, buy magazines that you cover, and try to find out as much info as possible when your not working.

    Its sad our people have a weird way of showing how they admire eachother. If I were her, I wouldn’t give anybody the pleasure! The same people who are talking about her weave, who she sleeps with,and how she’s dressed are the same b*****s who are sending their kids to those summits to learn about credit, self esteem, and how not to look like they mama’s!

  15. She is still pretty even without all the makeup on!!!!!!

  16. You all are so funny. Why are we so obsessed with celebritys. They are human just like us with just a little bit more money. Think bigger we are all stars. There are people famous on the internet, but not in hollywood. Look at the owner of this blog. She is creating herself. Create yourself and lets make the celebrities start searching for us on the internet and make them want to meet us. I am a cousin to a high profile actress and let me tell you if you could meet some of these celebrities and be in there presence for any length of time you will find they have lost touch with reality and life in general. They no longer know how to communicate with out thinking about themselves and they think everything is about them. Especially when they around non hollywood people they think they are the main attraction. We should all feel that way all the time, but without the attitude. Everybody is a celebrity and should be celebrated.
