R.I.P. Eartha Kitt!
I wasn’t planning on blogging today, but Eartha Kitt, singer, actress and legend died at 81, on Christmas! This makes me truly sad.
Sidenote: According to YBF.com, Beyonce is supposed to play Eartha Kitt in a movie about her life. I quit ALL of Hollywood. Captain Biopic needs to go SAT DOWN!! When did she become the Patron Saint of Autobiographies? To say she needs more people to pull this off is an understatement. She needs at least the Deacon Board and Head Ushers of Faith Pentecostal Church of God in Christ on Bethlehem A.M.E.
I just cant. I wont. I refuse. I object. I reject it. I rebuke it. I abhor it. I spray it with holy water. I exorcise it.
I’m on a Xmas-induced fatigue and itis so I really can’t say more than that. All I know is that Beyonce needs not do one more biopic for AT LEAST another 5 years. I don’t want to see her in another bad wig, cussing awkwardly and trying not to choke on smoke. I don’t hate Benoncay. Chick is fierce, and although her dancing can seem like seizures at times, I actually like her. She’s a good performer. But I’ll be damned in the pits of Dereon Hell if I ain’t sick of her face in these biopics!
Anyway, the point of all of this was to say Rest In Peace to one of the most FABULOUS singers and FIERCEST women ever, Eartha Kitt (born Eartha Mae Keith). There will never be another like her. The world is a little less fabulous without that voice, that attitude, and that catty fierceness.
