Matthew McConaughey Only White Man To Thank God In Acceptance Speech?

Posted by on Mar 3, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Events, Celebrity Movie, Celebrity News, Celebrity Quotes, Movies | 1 comment

First off let me just say, I love me some Matthew Mcconaughey from the moment I first heard his name. Then to find out he plays the bongos naked while smoking weed, made me adore him even more. Then I find out he likes women of color, too. Woo! Sorry, I’m so off subject here. We’re suppose to be discussing this beautiful acceptance speech (below) from this FAHN man:

Last night Matthew Mcconaughey won an Oscar for Best Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, a movie about AIDS patients in 1985 working around the US system to get access to AZT,  a drug banned by the FDA during US clinical trials, yet available across the border in Mexico for experimental treatment. Matthew specifically played a redneck, named Ron Woodroof, who was both racist and homophobic,

Lupita Wins Oscar For Best Supporting Actress At The 86th Academy Awards

Posted by on Mar 3, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Fashion, Celebrity Hair, Celebrity Movie, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos, Celebrity Quotes, Celebrity Red Carpet, Movies | Comments Off

I am sure you’re all around a water cooler somewhere discussing the big win last night. Lupita Nyong’o graciously added the title Academy Award Winner to her resume last night when she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. As soon as her name was called I felt my eyes watering, and of course when she started speaking I couldn’t hold back the tears. I don’t know what was so magical about the moment exactly, but it felt like the first time ever that a black woman has won the honor of Best Supporting Actress, although it’s not. Maybe it’s the way she graces the red carpet, and seeing another standard of beauty before my eyes. Or maybe it’s the fact that dreams really do come true, or as she said in her acceptance speech, that they are “valid”.

Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for her first role straight out of Yale; that’s rare in and of itself. So maybe it’s because she looks like Cinderella and we’re all witnesses to her first dance at the ball:

When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. Thank you.

Kanye West Biggest Regret Is Mom Not Meeting Baby North

Posted by on Feb 25, 2014 in Celebrity Concert, Celebrity Family, Celebrity Kids, Celebrity Moms, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News, Celebrity Quotes | 1 comment

Kanye West showed his sensitive side during a concert at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Casino, instead of his traditional rants, the rapper talked about his biggest regret in life. Although the example he gives is not technically a regret, it touched my heart because I lost my mother when my oldest son was just two years old, and my youngest son was a newborn infant. They don’t have any memories of her. Sadly, Kanye West’s mother died before meeting his first born.

These past 10 years have been amazing. There’s been some ups and downs. I made some mistakes and I’ve made some accomplishments. There’s only one thing I regret. There’s only one thing I wish I could change out of everything that’s ever happened. I wish that my mother could’ve met my daughter.

Drake Writes Apology Letter To Rolling Stone; Yet Another Cash Money Apology

Posted by on Feb 15, 2014 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News, Celebrity Quotes | 1 comment

Drake is yet another member of Cash Money apologizing publicly for his freedom of expression. First, Lil Wayne apologizes for the controversial Medgar Evers lyrics, then Nicki Minaj apologizes for the Malcom X cover, and now Drake is apologizing to Rolling Stone magazine for calling them “evil”.

So Drake is upset that Rolling Stone magazine changed the cover he was promised, to feature actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who recently died after a heroin overdose. No shade against the actor, Drake attacks Rolling Stone magazine during a twitter rant eventually calling the press evil, and vowing not to do anymore magazine interviews.

Miley Nude Again For “W” Magazine, Admits To Having Few Friends

Posted by on Feb 3, 2014 in Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity Magazine, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos, Celebrity Quotes, Magazine Covers | 4 comments

I must confess hearing the words Miley Cyrus and nude has gotten a bit old; not really sure why it keeps creating a buzz. Although the cover reads, “No Apologies, Miley Cyrus Laid Bare,” the photo vaguely resembles Miley. The girl on the cover looks older and maturer, a far cry from the Miley we see on social media with her tongue hanging out, demanding that we see her as an adult through very child like antics.
