Anthony Mackie is “2 Legit” & Joseph Gordon-Levitt Has “Rhythm”

Lip Sync Battle has to be the most original concept show in a long time, because who doesn’t love to see celebrities pantomime other celebrities songs, especially when they nail it. The Night Before co-stars Anthony Mackie and Joseph Gordon-Levitt turned their lip-sync battle into a dance-off when Mackie nailed a performance of MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit,” right down to the “Hammer Time” wiggle across the stage and the spandex biker shorts and Joseph Gordon-Levitt donned lipstick and a ponytail for Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation.” Is this how actors promote their movies nowadays? If so, then more please.

OVER IT: Rachel Dolezal, Caitlyn Jenner, and The Confederate Flag

Blindie is not only over the racial shenanigans of Rachel Dolezal, #ByeRachel, the transition of Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn and that damn racist Confederate flag, we’re also WAY over the media hype of it all. First of all, Rachel Dolezal presents herself as a pathological liar who is in deep denial of reality. This denial of reality includes her parentage, which leads us to question whether she is mentally unstable in some way or is rejecting her parents because of some type of abuse she was subjected to or witnessed. And what about those allegations of her biological brother, Joshua

Gimme Five: Things We Love About Lee Daniels’ Empire

Okay, so we know this post is long overdue, but we were so caught up with all of the drama on Empire that we forgot to weigh in on it. So, without further ado, here is a round-up of the five things Blindie loves about Lee Daniels’ Empire, besides the obvious -like Cookie, and Gabourey Sidibe’s character saying her mom is white which is why her name is Becky: 1 – The portrayal of an African American family business!

GIMME FIVE: Things You Should Remember About Bill Cosby (Besides the Drugging and the Raping)

Before Bill Cosby’s once illustrious career melts away like a pudding pop left out on a hot summer day, and before you go blaming comedian Hannibal Buress for stirring all of this mess up and causing the meltdown, just remember these five things:   1 – Cosby objects to poor black people Remember when Bill Cosby derided poor black people during a 2004 speech in Washington D.C. to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court Decision in Brown v. Board of Education? Well, if he hadn’t made all of those highly critical unproductive generalizations about “lower and lower

GIMME FIVE: Reasons To Love “How To Get Away With Murder”

There are so many reasons to love Shonda Rhimes latest hit drama on television, but these are Blindie’s top five! 1 – Billy Brown – He’s got the body of a boxer and the voice of a Marine!

Jesse Williams On Shooting of Ferguson Teenager Michael Brown

http://youtu.be/RDU8Bk9jc-s Jesse Williams talks to CNN about the shooting of 18 year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri on Sunday. Here are a few excerpts from his on the situation: "I think we have to talk about the narrative and make sure we’re starting at the beginning. You will find that people doing the oppressing often want to start the narrative at a convenient point,” Williams said. “This started with a kid getting shot and killed and left in the street for four hours. I’ve never seen a white body left in the heat for four hours in the sweltering heat. “I know plenty of white kids that steal stuff from convenience stores,” Williams continued in response to allegations that Brown stole cigars moments before his murder by law enforcement. “There is this idea that every time a black person does something they automatically become a thug worthy of their own death.” “The rest of us are not treated like human beings. Period,” the actor said. “That needs to be discussed. That is the story.”
