There have been several rumors soaring that Nick Cannon will be portraying Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic. Nick has been adding fuel to the fire by throwing out hints that he is basically a shoe in for the role. Lee Daniels is set to direct the Richard Pryor biopic, and Weinstein Company is fully backing the project. They have named Eddie Murphy, Michael B. Jordan, and Marlon Wayans as choices to play Richard Pryor, and it has been reported that Marlon Wayans impressed the head honchos of Weinstein Company during his reading for the role.
Even though Nick Cannon has altered his appearance and has insinuated that he already had the leading role, the movie is not in production and no roles have been officially announced. Fans first started to notice Nick’s transformation when he appeared at this year’s BET Awards sporting a freshly blown out Afro and beard. After the show, he posted the following picture on his Instagram with the caption, “Now you get it.”
If you haven’t been to a Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum before, I suggest you go. The one in New York City is quite amazing. However, it’s been a good decade since I last saw it and I personally think the quality isn’t as consistent as it was before. Yesterday, at the NYC Madame Tussaud location, they unveiled 4 different Whitney Houston figurines.
Mama Cissy Houston was in attendance and from the look on her face, she wasn’t too impressed. I think the National Anthem Whitney is spot on! But the Queen Of The Night Whitney looks like she has better things to do with her time. Check out close up pics of the figures and let me know what you think…
Now how adorable is this! Child photographer Tricia Messeroux has a knack for taking some cute photos of some cute kids. But specifically, her specialty lies in taking kids and remaking them into pint sized celebrities. Her photos go by the name of ToddleWood. This year, ToddleWood takes on recreating shots from The Golden Globes red carpet.
AWWWWWW!!!!! Check out the pint-sized Halle Berry, Keri Washington and Lucy Lu, when you continue!
Bobbi Kristina was working the red carpet like an A-list celebrity at the Los Angeles premiere of Sparkle. I don’t know what it was but for the first time, I can see that Bobbi Krisitna also favors her mother, Whitney. Check out Bobbi Kristina glowing on the red carpet with Nick Gordon by her side (her adopted brother turned lover). BTW, they are not related in any form or fashion, so they are free to date. Besides, Bobbi Kristina looks happy for the first time in a long time.
I so see Whitney Houston in that picture…Awwwww! More pics…
Just ran across this amazing photo from the beautiful Tyra Banks wishing her Google + followers a Happy Presidents’ Day.
She channels the fierceness of First Lady Michelle Obama.
I LOVE this look. I just LOVE me some Tyra!
Artist for Peace “Never Again” Concert took place Monday Night in Universal City, CA to honor Stevie Wonder and peace efforts against genocide. It was the Lost & Found event of the year. Bobby Brown made an appearance, along with Eric Benet, Pras, Wayne Brady, and Tommy Davidson. Seriously where have all of these people been? Chaka Khan serenaded her good friend Stevie Wonder. Many of you may not know this, I really didn’t either (I’m not that old), but before their was a Beyonce, Chaka Khan held the title of the voice with the body. As you can see below in her leopard boots and bodysuit, Ms Chaka Khan is holding on to that title.
Actually in her younger years, Chaka Khan and Nicki Minaj resemblance is quite striking. It’s almost eerie. I would like to see Nicki Minja remake this photo in Ebony Icons.
Anyway, back to the topic. Stevie Wonder is holding on to his braids, but I don’t know how much longer the braids can hold on, his iconic look is fading fast. Eric Benet, steps out on the red carpet with his wife pregnant Manuela, who is also the ex-wife of Prince. Plus pics of Bobby Brown, Tommy Davidson, and Wayne Brady when you continue…
