Trailer Fail: Jennifer Hudson's "Winnie" Biopic

Maybe they did it for the money.That's what it had to be. Why else would two "just ok" actors decide to take on characters as challenging, iconic and complex as Nelson and Winnie Mandela?

Or maybe it isn't their fault. The trailer for the new movie Winnie was recently leaked, and the results are more than a little disappointing -- so who's going to take the blame?

The film, based upon the life of Winnie Mandela, was first announced, with Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard in the staring roles, people were surprised, to say the least. But now that the trailer is out, it seems that everyone's apprehensions have been confirmed -- this looks like a really bad movie.

Do women make bad friends?

There's a statement I've heard some women say that always makes me cringe - "I don't have a lot of female friends." What usually follows that sentence are explanations like, "they're catty" or bring "too much drama" or worse, "they're jealous."

It hurts me to hear women generalize and stereotype each other, and I can't help but wonder if women who make these types of statements are the source of the problem. If you can't find a way to get along with a variety of women, wouldn't that make the common denominator you?

It's my birthday & this the perfect gif


I like to imagine they're dancing to "whoomp there it is." It seems fitting.

That was the song my subconscious dj selected for my bday. I've been thoroughly enjoying all morning.

PS - After the brontosaurus left, they played "who let the dogs out" and laughed at his misfortune. A brontosaurus going to a T-rex disco, honestly! Then the brontosaurus came back and burned the disco down, Carrie-style, and they all died. Sad really, all little arms should be united.

The whole purpose of this post is to figure out who is crazy

Do you believe Jay-Z is in the Illuminati? If so, click here.

Honestly, if he even was, why would I care? Why would anyone care? He's influential, but he's not the president. His power only goes so far. And wouldn't his "blatant clues" sort of ruin the whole purpose of a secret society? I mean, suspects of a society that no one is supposed to know exists shouldn't be obvious. We should all be giving a side-eye to Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. Maybe THEY'RE Illuminati. But affiliating a prominent placement of skull and bones with membership to a secret society? I think not. (For the record, I own a skull and bones shirt, plus they're on my iphone cover so... I'm probably in the illuminati and the membership perks just haven't come through yet?)

I believe it's very possible that Jay is agnostic or even atheist, but a devil worshiper? Stretch.

That said, I recently did a piece on Jay not being Illuminati for The Grio. Nothing new was revealed, but the comments let me know that crazy conspiracy theorists are alive, well, and have any and all Illuminati affiliated commentary on Google alert.

"This is horrible journalism [ED NOTE: it was an opinion piece, not reported journalism] because you seem to ignore some of the key points that lead people to believe Jay-Z is in the Illuminati. It seems pretty obvious to me that you would rather dismiss the clear evidence of Jay-Z participating in some type of group rather than going on factual information.... if he's not worshiping the devil then what is he worshiping? Why don't you ask your expert that."

How to Cook Squirrel

Rough break for my four-legged friends. First they're being prosecuted for refusing medical treatment, now people in the UK are cooking them like fine delicacies. This pains me - how could you ever eat anything so cute?

This finished product looks straight up like some hobo cuisine.
