Angela Bassett: “Where Are Black Actors in Woody Allen Films??”

Posted by Bossip Staff

angela-bassett-1

Angela Bassett isn’t jumping at any Woody Allen projects, and oddly enough, he isn’t exactly knocking down any black actors’ or actresses’ doors either:

“I mean, to have one black cast member for the whole film seems rather strange, and, oh yes, she’s a prostitute, of course,” said the actress who portrayed Tina Turner in the biopic What’s Love Got to Do With it? “Don’t get me wrong, I love Spain and it looked beautiful, but that part of the world is so diverse and, really, what is that about?” Continue »

Denzel Comes Up Short But Wins in the End

Posted by Bossip Staff

Denzel and family

Denzel Washington challenged his son to a swimming race while on vacay and came up just short:

DENZEL Washington is proving he’s still in great shape at 54. He celebrated his birthday on Dec. 28 in the Turks and Caicos, and “during a boat ride to the island where his party was held,” said our source, “he jumped overboard and challenged his son to a swimming race.” Washington lost the competition, but won over guests like Star Jones and Turks and Caicos Premier Michael Misick at his 25-person party, where everyone enjoyed Dom Pérignon and platters of lobster

That’s a good looking 54, no doubt. We’re sure there are plenty of ladies out there who wouldn’t mind letting Denzel stroke their breasts watching Denzel do the breaststroke. Get it, you big ‘ole stud, you.

Obamas Officially Move to DC This Weekend

Posted by Bossip Staff

Obama's @ Honolulu Zoo

Starting this weekend, The Obamas will be calling DC their home:

The Obama family will move to Washington D.C. this weekend, according to the Barack Obama’s transition team.

“The president-elect will be here in Washington to continue work on an economic recovery plan,” the team announced.

He, his wife, Michelle, and their two daughters Malia and Sasha will stay at a Washington hotel through Jan. 15. From there, they will move into the Blair House, which is the president’s guest house and stands across the street from the White House. Inauguration events begin Jan. 20.

The transition team added: “[Obama] will also be here for the beginning of school.”

We know we speak on behalf of the entire DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia), when we say, “Welcome to Chocolate City, Obama and family.” We can all sleep soundly knowing that if the government ever slips, the community damn sure has the artillery to protect him.

Get a load of Barack, Sasha & Malia at the Honolulu Zoo after the break Continue »

Musiq Soulchild on Music

Posted by Bossip Staff

musiq-soulchild

Musiq shares his thoughts on the industry and his inspiration to create music:

People. People that support my music and people that come to my shows. I’m always inspired by them, knowing that I still make music that people care about and that people choose to invest in. It’s like you just said, this industry is very unpredictable and you never know what the current climate is going to be at any given moment, so to still be current and credible and to still make music that matters to people, that’s inspiring to me.

Who would have ever thought a high school dropout with a sleepy eye would end up giving millions of people an opportunity to listen to his talent? This cat was probably teased every day, yet he is still humble and grounded after making it. Take notes, people.

Leona Lewis Leads the Way in Digital Music Sales

Posted by Bossip Staff

leona-lewis

Digital music sales are through the roof this year and Leona Lewis is riding that gravy train:

Despite a recession, digital music sales continue to climb, finally breaking the 1 billion sales mark for 2008. According to Nielsen SoundScan, digital track sales are up 28% over 2007’s digital track sales, up more than predicted.

In April 2008, SoundScan projected that digital track sales would break the 1 billion mark for the year, and the mark has been hit with two weeks to spare, and is expected to near the 1.04 billion mark by year’s end.

Of the year’s sales, 17% were credited to the top 200 digital tracks, equaling 171 million sales.

Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” is the highest selling digital song so far in 2008, with 3.3 million sales.

We knew things were going digital, but we don’t know it was like that. We wonder how many more digital sales she would have without Bey ganking sh*t. SMH

Oprah Mansion-hunting in DC

Posted by Bossip Staff

Oprah Barack Obama

Rumor has it that Oprah is looking for a crib in the District to be by her man, Obama:

OPRAH Winfrey wants to be as close to Barack Obama as possible. Insiders say Winfrey has started a preliminary search for a home in Washington, DC. A nine-bedroom Georgetown mansion she’s said to have asked about is listed at $50 million, but another source said, “She has never personally been to see it.”

We mean, damn, is Oprah trying to be president in a few terms or something? Spending $50 millions stacks on a crib to be near the president (and his wife and kids, might we add) is a bit aggressive, Harpo.
