Keenan ivory Wayans

Keenan Ivory Wayans stopped by the Today show to talk to Savannah Guthrie about his new gig as judge on “Last Comic Standing”  with Roseanne Barr and Russell Peters.  During the conversation he talked about ‘some’ of the careers he helped launch, like Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Lopez. He mentions that he snoozed on Chris Rock, John Leguizamo, Martin Lawrence when he once rejected them as comics.

“I missed a few!  Honestly, I feel like I was one of the luckiest guys in the world because I got to work with so many amazing people early on in their career, and then I get credit for it now.”

Ah well,  things still worked out of the best right?  Everybody’s good!!

Last Comic Standing” returns on May 22 at 9 p.m.

Kandi Alexander

 

Mo’Nique,  Khandi Alexander and Queen Latifah will star in Bessie, HBO’s film about iconic blues singer Bessie Smith.

Queen Latifah will portray Bessie.  The project chronicles how Smith overcame her tempestuous personal life to become one of the most acclaimed performing and recording artists of the 1920s and ’30s, earning the nickname Empress of the Blues. Mo’Nique will play Ma Rainey, one of the first professional blues singers billed as The Mother of the Blues. Ma Rainey (born Gertrude Pridgett) was already well known when she met then-young Bessie. According to a popular story, which has been disputed, Rainey kidnapped Smith, making her join the Rabbit Foot Minstrels, and teaching her to sing the blues. Alexander will play Bessie’s older sister, Viola. By the time Bessie was nine, both of her parents and one brother had died, with Viola taking care of her siblings.

Charles Barkley thinks LeBron James and Cleveland are ready for a reunion and I would have agree with that notion.

You guys already know I’ve been longing for his return to Quicken Loans arena since he left. I think it would be great for Lebron, Dan Gilbert and the fans of Cleveland need to leave the old stuff in the past.  Ultimately,  I think he would come home if the situation presented itself.

In an interview Wednesday on ESPN’s “SVP & Russillo,” Barkley advocated a return to the Cavaliers for James and, in the process, took a shot at Miami Heat fans.

“I’ve always thought he was going to go back to Cleveland,” Barkley said. “Nobody dislikes LeBron. I think LeBron made a huge mistake with that ‘Decision’ crap. He’s come back and since admitted that. That’s the only thing people hold against LeBron.

“He’s a great player, a great person. I hope he goes back to Cleveland. Those fans in Miami are not real fans, those fans in Cleveland are real fans. I’ve always hoped he would go back to Cleveland. That would be a great way to finish his career.”

True…True!!  Charles Barkley – ‘Fans in Cleveland are Real Fans’

Dear Lebron,

Okay, Bronny I see you.   You did the damn thing.

Put Akron on the map Check mark symbol

Get some rings   Check mark symbol

Bring a championship home  ?

It’s time to come home now.

Lebron, let’s just get this championship….come home.  You know you want to.

 

Love ya dearly,

Thanks Robb iMacc for the tip

Really? Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) Barred From Entering US (His Place of Birth)

Posted May 22, 2014 12:06 PM By Deirdre B Pride
Mos Def aka Yasiin Bey

 Mos Def aka Yassin Bey has been barred from entering the US due to immigration issues.

Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) Barred From Entering US (His Place of Birth)

 

Yasiin has been living in South Africa and was to tour in the US.  The is a immigration loophole that is keeping him from entering the US. Because of this, his tour has been cancelled.  There is no word if they’ll reschedule the gig after this is all figured out.

Yasiin has been a strong critic of US policies, so it can be safe to say his paper work may get lost for a long period of time.  Yassin that he had found a peace in South Africa that he couldn’t find in the country he once called home.

“I lived in Brooklyn 33 years of my life. I thought I’d be buried in that place,” he told the magazine. Around seven years ago, I was like, you know, I gotta go, I gotta leave.’ It’s very hard to leave. And I lived in a lot of places. Central America. North America. Europe for a while.

And I came to Cape Town in 2009, and it just hit me. I was like, Yeah.’ I know when a good vibe gets to you. And, you know, I thought about this place every day from when I left. I was like, ‘I’m comin’ back..

For a guy like me, who had five or six generations not just in America but in one town in America, to leave America, things gotta be not so good with America.

That doesn’t mean, however, that Bey has completely abandoned Hollywood. The actor who has starred in movies like 2005′s “The Hitchhiker’s Guide of the Galaxy” and 2003′s “The Italian Job” is starring in the upcoming, “Life of Crime,” a prequel of sorts to “Jackie Brown.”

Everyone has their own oppositions to polices laws and why not, but this should not prevent him from entering his place of birth.   I can’t wait to hear his upcoming Marvin Gaye collaborative album

Chris Rock

Jerry Seinfeld tried to talk  Chris Rock into taking over for David Letterman, but says Chris wanted nothing to do with a gig that requires putting on makeup everyday, Seinfeld tells Esquire’s Scott Raab in the July/June edition of the men’s magazine.

“I was trying to convince him to take it. He says, ‘Absolutely no possible way,’ ” Seinfeld said.

“Both of us are out when you hear ‘makeup everyday.’ You hear that and I’m out. But I said to him, ‘What would your father do? Would your father turn down a job like that?’ I go, ‘What kind of father are you? What kind of man are you?,’ ” Seinfeld said.

“He has other ways to make money, so it’s not really a fair question. But that was funny to me. To think of his father getting an opportunity like that and going, “You know what? I don’t think so.”
That’s funny.
