VIDEO: Chris Rock Takes You Back To Your Roots in Good Hair

Chris Rock takes a candid look at the world and business of black hair in his documentary Good Hair. With celebrities like Kerry Washington, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Megan Good, Raven Symoné, Maya Angelou, and Reverend Al Sharpton offering their views on 'good hair' via relaxers and weaves, the film looks like it's bringing the LOLs! Blindie especially likes the discussion on weave sex by Nia Long, and you can never fail with Mr. Mooney's deadpan delivery (while rocking an super-sized afro wig): "If your hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed...if your hair is nappy, they're not happy!" Good Hair hits theaters in October

Ga Ga: Yara Shahidi Stars with Eddie Murphy in Imagine That & Angelina Jolie in Salt

yarashahidi-adorable There's a new scene-stealer in town: kid actor Yara Shahidi, who isn't only taking over where little Dakota Fanning left off, but is a bankable star in the latest Eddie Murphy flick, Imagine That. The cute kid from Minneapolis beat out 3,000 girls for the role of Olivia, an imaginative kid with real life stock tips, which her dad (Eddie Murphy) finds useful! But Eddie isn't the only A-Lister Yara's sharing screen time with: she's starring (with her little brother Sayeed) in Unthinkable as Samuel L. Jackson's tots and with Angelina Jolie in the thriller Salt. Of Jolie, whom she recently shot a scene with, Yara said, “[She] was really nice, not intimidating. It was like saying hello to a friend.” eddiemurphy-imaginethat-yarashahidi.jpg

In addition to dishing on her tour ("I'll work until my feet are blistered!") and her new movie, where she plays a woman fighting to keep an obsessed woman away from her family ("You have to fight in your relationships!"), Beyonce also commented on Etta James' harsh remarks about her inaugural ball performance of "At Last". "I played Etta James, so I did my research, I read her book," she says diplomatically, "I was not at all surprised. That's Etta. She's hilarious!" PHOTO: Geffen Records
