Dear Diary -
I recently saw the movie PRECIOUS, the long awaited Lee Daniel's flick gone super-hyped by Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry. Yeah that movie. I saw it the second week with my friend Candace. Candace is a little on the plus side right now, she is going through some emotional issues, but I digress. I was all prepared with tissues ready to cry but I didn't shed a tear. I so wanted to don't get me wrong but, I heard talk and abuse like that when I grew up so I guess that is why it didn't effect me. And also, I knew it was made up. But as we all know, art imitates life and vice versa.
A few weeks later, I decided that I wanted to read the book PUSH by Sapphire. It was such a page turner. Just to know that there are young women who are raped by the men in their lives. It was astounding for me to just read those things. A friend of mine told me that Lee Daniels is good friends with the author. Now it all makes sense. I love to see when black people put their minds together and make money. BIG MONEY.
I will say this, that movie isn't going anywhere any time soon. It will win an Oscar. Come on Oprah and Tyler know what they are doing. This is a bit of a pissing game if you ask me or a "who's dick is bigger?" contest. I love it! They are going to show Hollywood on a HUGE level that black stories deserve to be told.
I was blown away when I saw this morbidly obese black girl on Oprah. She is articulate, nothing at all what I thought. I seriously thought that they had gone to some ghetto somewhere to pluck this delicate flower. She is definitely going to win an Oscar now. And I promise you she will not have that weight on for long. With money comes a better way to eat and trainers and everything at her disposal. She would be a fool not to have some type of surgery to get that weight off. We shall see, but I see a HUGE 2010 for Miss Gabourey Sidibe. They are going to wisk her off to a fat farm and we will no longer recognize the soon to be Oscar winner.
Well Diary, I must say good bye for now. I can't wait until our next meeting.
