I can’t wait to see this movie!

Dear White People is a satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular ‘African American’ themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in ‘post-racial’ America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

The movie is written and directed by Justin Simien. The movie won several awards at the Sundance Movie Festival and is highly anticipated.

Check out the trailer below:

Movie hits theaters October 17.

YaYa DaCosta Recreates Whitney Houston’s Iconic Album Cover

yaya-and-whitney

If you didn’t already know Lifetime Network will be releasing a biopic based upon the life of the late Whitney Houston. America’s Next Top Model runner-up, Yaya DaCosta, has been cast to play Houston.

If you hadn’t heard Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kris, is not happy with the production of this movie. She felt that she should have been cast to play her mother. I totally disagree with her and so did the director Angela Bassett, and she said it best when she said Bobbi Kris is not an actor and a role on a Tyler Perry sitcom and reality show don’t constitute acting skills.

I think Yaya is a good choice to play Whitney, she looks like Whitney and she has acting experience. I also think with Angela Bassett at the helm the biopic will be good and she wouldn’t let it be anything but a good representation of Whitney.

DaCosta recently recreated Houston’s 1987 iconic album cover for Entertainment Weekly, and I think she did an awesome job! I am very interested to see this biopic and see what aspects of Houston’s life will be covered
