She’s Gotta Have It, Spike Lee’s first feature-length film, will premier on Netflix as a 10-episode series. This news comes just one month after the 30th anniversary of the film’s release. Surprisingly, Spike’s wife suggested the idea of turning the movie into a series and the couple ran with the idea, ending in a deal with Netflix. The film is a significant and iconic contribution to American film with its simplistic yet intriguing cinematography, mapped with the intricacies of a woman’s sexuality that are not masked in stereotype. She’s Gotta Have It piloted Spike Lee’s career, and he later went on to create more stories depicting narratives of Black girls and women in Crooklyn, 4 Little Girls and Jungle Fever…

Music Icon Jody Watley Is Not Happy About The Way Black Women Are Being Portrayed

jody-watley
R&B/Dance music icon Jody Watley is so peeved about the images of Black women in the media that she felt compelled to pen an open letter on the topic. In the letter, which appeared on her website, Watley expressed her frustrations with various issues, from the portrayal of Black women in media to misconceptions and misinformation about her former group, Shalamar. “It’s no secret that Black women are generally the most marginalized, disrespected, diminished, and dissected across social media and in society. It makes no difference if you’re the First Lady of the United States, an Olympic gymnast, the greatest women in tennis, pop stars, actresses like Leslie Jones attacked for taking a role some thought she shouldn’t be in, executives, journalists – who came to defend mega -star, my colleague and more than baby sister of King Of Pop Janet Jackson, after the Superbowl..or you could be working mothers or students who take heat for wearing cornrows or natural styles, welfare recipients, “baby mamas”, too loud, too spirited, too quiet, too reserved…

Master P Says He Has Music With Lil Wayne, Weighs In On Lawsuit Against Birdman

Master P
Master P has seen his share of highs and lows in the music industry. So it’s only right that he offer some positive words of advice to fellow New Orleanean music legends Lil Wayne and Birdman as they fight it out in court. As you already know, Lil Wayne is on very bad terms with his recording home Cash Money Records and its co-founder Bryan “Birdman/Baby” Williams. He is currently suing them for $51 million and accusing them of holding his Carter V album hostage. Birdman has come back and said that it’s actually Wayne who is refusing to release the album. Master P‘s No Limit Records has been on the top of the rap game just like Cash Money has been at one point. While we didn’t see any nasty court battles play out between P and his artists, “The Colonel” does have some words of advice for Weezy and Baby and some thoughts on J. Prince getting involved…
