JOJO’S JOURNAL – PRESIDENT OBAMA, BILL CONDON AND OTHER STUFF

January 26, 2009

picture-015Hey folks, what’s up. Just stopping by to give my take on what’s going on in the world of entertainment and beyond.  And remember, it’s my take, everyone has an opinion

~~~~~~~~~~~

Although the presidential inauguration is over the excitement, or should I say euphoria, is still in the air.  Millions of us in America, and around the world, are filled with hope that a better day is on the way for all of us.  Most of us in America want peace with our brothers and sisters in the Middle East and other foreign lands.  Most of us want decent healthcare, affordable education, an end to racial profiling and police brutality, we want guns off of our streets, safety and security.  We all want these things whether black or white, old or young.  Therefore, I say we all must pitch in and help President Obama and his team accomplish this and more.  I have been inspired like never before in my entire life.  How do you feel? 

 

What was your favorite part about the inauguration?  My favorite part was Beyonce signing “At Last” for Mr. President and Michelle’s first dance.  That was magical!   May God bless and protect President  Barack Hussein Obama and his entire family.  He’s going to need it.

On to entertainment news

Bill Condon, the genius who directed the movie “Dreamgirls”, is directing a biopic on the beautiful Aaliyah which will be released mid-2009.  It’s so “in the making” that he doesn’t even have a title yet.  Keisha Chante, an R&B singer from Canada, will be portraying Aaliyah.  And she is gorgeous like Aaliyah was.  Mr. Condon said the following “We are going to great extremities to make this movie perfect. We have (Keisha) Chante in extensive training studying, speaking with family members, watching personal footage and in choreography training with Aaliyah’s choreographer and dear friend Fatima Robinson. This movie will be seamless the same way it was for Selena fans who enjoyed Jennifer Lopez.”  I am a HUGE Aaliyah fan and have great confidence in Bill Condon doing a wonderful job.  After all, it was his direction that helped Jennifer Hudson win an Oscar.

Rumor has it that Rihanna is being considered to play the 4th angel in the next movie in the “Charlie’s Angels” franchise.  I think that would be a good look for RiRi.

The 2009 Annual BET Honors airs on February 9, 2009 at 9:00 p.m. on BET.  The honorees are Mary J. Blige, Tyler Perry, entrepreneur Beverly Smith, Judith Jamison, Earvin “Magic” Johnson and the Honorable Congressman James E. Clyburn.  I saw a few photos from the show and Whitney Houston looks GORGEOUS!  I am soooooo looking forward to new music from my sista’ from Jersey!

The United Negro College Funds’ Evening of Stars:  A Tribute to Patti Labelle aired this past weekend and it was a great show.  Ms. Labelle deserved every minute of  the adulation having supported the UNCF for many years.  It was filled with excellent performances by Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Yolanda Adams, Chrisette Michele, Mario, Nona Hendricks and Sara Dash and a lot of other fabulous people.  If you missed it I’m sure you can catch several re-runs.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Has Kanye West lost his mind completely or does he just enjoy shocking people and sounding controversial?  Or perhaps he is still in mourning over the loss of his mother which is sometimes hard for people to get over.  Kanye now says he wants to pose in the nude, wants to do porn and doesn’t rule out bisexual scenes.  What?!  Of course he is an adult and can do whatever he so chooses but that would probably be a bad career choice.  Plus, who wants to see Kanye nude?  I’m not hating on the dude but he…….. how should I say this….. is not that attractive!  Wondering:  is Kanye gay?

~~~~~~~~~~~

I am so darn annoyed by certain bloggers and other folks saying Janet Jackson is fat.  Stop hating!  Janet is a beautiful woman whether she is thin or full-figured.  You jealous cows!  L

~~~~~~~~~~~

I don’t know how true this is but according to TMZ Death Row Records was recently liquidated and among the items being auctioned off was some “worn” underwear belonging to Suge Knight!  What?!  Ewwww…that’s nasty!  Just thinking about Suge’s HUGE dirty drawers makes me want to throw up! Yuck!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Gerald McCullouch, one of the actors on CSI, was recently attacked on a New York City subway by a knife wielding thug.  The attacker was trying to steal Gerald’s laptop computer that he was working on but Gerald fought him back. He was fortunate that he did not get hurt and the perpetrator was caught and arrested by NYPD.  Here’s two things that stand out in this story for me:  1) while Gerald was being attacked the other passengers didn’t even help him, they ran into another car!  I’m going to assume that most of the passengers were tourists and/or children because here in NY people will help to beat you down in a heartbeat!  2) Gerald was stupid to fight back; he should have given up his laptop.  This is New York; he could have been killed. 

~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, enough for now.  I’ll be back.

HOPE, CHANGE, ACCEPTANCE!

Love yourself and each other

Smooches!

    If you live in Weston Florida and plan on refinancing an existing mortgage or get a new mortgage beware of scam artist Tulio J. Rodriguez.
