I know I said I was nominating Rod the loser, but I have to give this week's title to Lil' Kim. (Polls will return next week). In any event, Grown Woman alerted me to the fact that Lil' Kim is apparently distraught about her portrayal as a jump off in the movie Notorious. Apparently, she also complained about the actress who played her and claimed that she was "too dark." She allegedly wanted Christina Milian to play her. Pause. Think about it. Guffaw. Yes it ridiculous, laughable and sad all at the same time.
Biggie's mom said, “Do you know why the character was too dark for her? Because she’s a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body, and you can tell the world I said it, because those are Lil’ Kim’s words. She should be ashamed of herself...Tell Lil’ Kim to go find herself, go drink a cup of green tea and get a life! This movie is not about Lil’ Kim. She felt we used her character to promote [but] this movie is about my son. … Lil’ Kim needs to go sit down.”
Ha! I have to say Mama Wallace is right. The movie was about Biggie's life--everyone else was a side character. On who played her, Ms. Naturi Naughton is roughly Lil Kim's old complexion and petite. Ms. Kim does not look a darn thing like Milian. But you be the judge....
She needs therapy, the Lord and some unconditional love.
HONORABLE MENTION: Traveldiva. Yeah, I'm giving myself a nod. Michelle Obama was having lunch at Georgia Brown's, the restaurant right outside my building. I actually saw crowds of people excited about something, but I thought it was some kind of protest, so I was like, just move so I can eat my Cosi salad. DARN IT! I could have gotten a pic!
