Spike Lee

Well would you looky who is JET Beauty of the Week this time around??? Spike Lee is
JET’s cover star for their upcoming (February 6) issue and inside he gets pretty revealing.

Here’s what he had to say about how he found his calling:

“I was just standing in the corner, looking out my window and seeing the richness and variety of African-American experience. What I was seeing on television and the diversity of African-American experience was lacking in television and film. And my parents were very progressive. I remember getting a lecture from my mother. ‘Don’t let them tell you that Cleopatra looked like Elizabeth Taylor.’ She really was about re-education.”

We’ve been using this guy for great headlines for a minute now, so it was no surprise to hear him admit his work and his opinions have caused him some trouble in his time, check the next page for more excerpts from the story.
