Ages of the Disney Princesses

As you may know by now, I love Disney movies and I love talking and writing about them (see my posts on Disney Music is Everything and Disney Loves Single Parenthood and Princesses Who Make Piss Poor Decisions). And just because I’m a fan of them doesn’t mean I think they’re perfect. In fact, it’s [...]

Jennifer Hudson Terrence Howard as Winnie and Nelson Mandela

Three days later and I’m STILL mad! It’s because a new picture of Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone has surfaced and it looks even worse than the one I included in my last post. Zoe’s looking all dead in the eyes, looking like her face is dirty. She looks nothing like who she’s supposed to [...]

Zoe Saldana as Nina Simone Blackface

When I first heard about Zoe Saldana playing Nina Simone in an unauthorized biopic, I was not pleased. It makes NO sense to me that of every actress of color in Hollywood, Zoe would be the choice to play Nina. Zoe’s cool as an actress and I enjoy her work but nothing about her even [...]

Monster on the quad

Disney first released Monsters Inc. in 2001 and folks LOVED it. I know I sure did. Boo was adorabo and Mike and Sulley stole our hearts. Now they’re coming out with a sequel to it called Monsters University (and they’re re-releasing the original in 3D). To commemorate this release, the folks over there created a [...]

Simba Nala Lion King

I come to you in a sad, sad state. On Twitter, someone brought up the fact that Simba and Nala from the Lion King are siblings. First, I was all “NAWL! That cannot be!” And then I thought about it. Mufasa and Scar were the only lion males in the entire pride. And Nala doesn’t [...]

Disney Princesses Beef on Facebook. WIN. Thumbnail

In the last week or so, I’ve been coming across so many posts of the beefing Disney princesses. I don’t know who the originator is, but as soon as I find out, I’ll give them credit. Either way, these are giving me EVERYTHING I need. Please pay attention to how ratchet Mulan is. LMAOOO at [...]

Disney Princess Problems

I am a Disney fan, and I grew up watching all the cartoons like so many others did. Disney is basically an institution that’s wrapped all up through my childhood memories but when one thinks about their movies, you’ll realize that they aren’t all honky dory. Disney movies are ALWAYS about some major loss of [...]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Book Movie

Before I start, know that I won’t give away any real Harry Potter spoilers, and definitely not telling y’all details of the final battle. So don’t worry. You can read this in peace even if you haven’t watched the film or read the last book yet. True Life: I’m a PotterHead. I’ve read the Harry [...]

For Colored Girls Picture

I’ve never read Ntozake Shange’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf.” There. I said it. I saw a performance of it in high school when it was the Spring performance. I saw it twice because it was amazing. However, I’ve yet to read the choreopoem, although I own the book. [...]
