A “Lil Positivity” Alicia Keys Joins Jennifer Aniston To Direct Anthology About Breast Cancer For Lifetime Network

- By Bossip Staff

Ok Alicia, getting that good PR popping after that messy situation

Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore and Patty Jenkins have signed on to direct an anthology of short films to air on U.S. television.

“The Lifetime Original Movie Project Five” will explore the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives.

Aniston, Marta Kauffman, Paula Wagner, Kristin Hahn, Kevin Chinoy and Francesca Silvestri will executive produce the Sony Pictures Television production, reuniting Aniston and producer Kauffman for the first time since they worked together on the sitcom, “Friends.”

The announcement regarding the project was made Tuesday by Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Networks.

“Our hope with ‘Project Five’ is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small,” Aniston said in a statement. “We want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts all of our lives, no matter who we are.”

“I’m a big fan of this amazing group of powerful and creative women, and we are thrilled to be working with them on ‘Project Five,'” said Dubuc. “It’s an awesome feeling to be able to give them such a strong platform to do what they do best — entertain and tell great stories — so that we all educate viewers about breast cancer through these five films of courage, love and hope.”

Way to go ladies, sounds like this is going to be a truly moving series.

  • Tracey

    Some of these same idiots are the ones that keep making statements about people getting over the Chris Brown situation, but they want to go in on Alicia for something that they are clueless about. SMDH!! Hoodrats stay int he sewer.

  • Nikki

    You go Alicia, continue to show the haters what it is to be a truly unique, humble, human being, and this is why you continue to succeed. They will NEVER get it, because small minds don’t have room to process how life really works and how blessings really come about.

    So true. Not even TMZ, who usually digs up dirt about everyone, bought Mashonda’s story, because even they could see it wasn’t credible.

    But of course the urban blogs were too happy to run with it and brand her as a homewrecker, which is sad since Alicia’s one of very few artists we have today who’s actually about something. But people would rather sling dirt and discredit the good she’s done, just because it makes them feel better about themselves. Sad.

    You know what, I personally think that it is PATHETIC that there are soooo many women, who call themselves women, that are condoning Alicia’s behavior. True enough she has done some good humanitarian work, but that doesn’t discredit the fact that she stole someone’s husband. I know you guys want to put her on a pedestal because she is an artist. BUT the fact of the matter is, Swizz Beatz was still married at the time they hooked up, and that doesn’t say anything good about anyone who pursues a married man. I dont give a F— if it was Michelle Obama, it’s still wrong!!!!!!! And for people that are making comments about me hating, I have no reason to hate. I got mine, and I am doing well. And I couldn’t have made it this far hating, SO KICK ROCKS!!!!

      just because you have decided to sit as judge and jury and others choose not too, that does not mean that anyone is condoning anything, first of all I don’t know the situation so I am not able to condone or not, and it is not my business. I support Alicia as an artist. I am not the overseer of her personal life, if that was the case all of hollywood and everyone else would be banished because all of them have things that they do that I don’t particularly care for, as we all do. She didn’t kill anyone, and she did not beat on anyone, she did not violate anyones civil rights, therefore it does not stop me from liking her, her musica and her philanthropic efforts. The rest willl be between her and whoever she worships. Put your energy that you use to judge these people that you know nothing about to better use, worry about your family memebers and your community, those are things that you can affect and change.

      Right you have absolutely no reason, yet you still hate. I laugh. Something must not be right or you wouldn’t let this bother you so much. Little jealous? Hehe

    I automatically hold a certain amount of respect for people. They either gain or lose some overtime. Yeah I moved on from whatever Alicia did, but I can never look at her the same again because of what she did. I do believe karma is on it’s way towards her life. It just hasn’t hit her yet.

    Mashonda and Swizz’ relationship was over: your point being? That doesn’t mean one of them can just step out on the marriage especially when they’re LEGALLY together. You wait until the papers are signed to even let sparks fly. If there’s a problem, address it with your partner and break it off. Don’t cheat, then explain your issues after you’re caught. Swizz is wrong and Alicia is, too. But like a few of you, I’m over it and couldn’t care less about either one of them and their relationship. I’m indifferent.

    And I guess what she and Jen are doing is good. Yeah…yeah it is, I’ll admit it.

    My thing is that everyone just took Mashonda’s word as gospel and ran with. Nevermind that there is actually legal proof that they were separated from April 2008 and living apart for months prior to that. (Also proven by the fact that he had another child with someone else before he ever got with Alicia) There is nothing that proves Swizz and Alicia were getting together before they filed for divorce, except Mashonda’s say so.

    I get that some people may believe that you have to wait for divorce papers are finalized to date, but in my opinion that is a personal choice. Divorce can take years,and just because Mashonda didn’t move on, didn’t mean that Swizz should have had to be alone until she decided to let go, when they’d already been separated for months.

    Bottom line, we don’t know the whole story, so I’m not judging anyone based on hearsay. I will continue to respect and support Alicia because of the things I do know about her, such as her talent, her charity work, and the way she treated me when I met her. And that doesn’t make me pathetic, it just means I don’t let black blogs tell me who to hate.

  • crazystuff

    Really? Man stealer? That is so ridiculous. I believe he is of age and should be able to make his own decisions. Did she forcefully take him? People can be so ignorant. Anyway Alicia’s had more than her share of idiots talking bad about her. Grow up!

  • Sonya

    That is so stupid. What would really be funny is if someone aired all your dirt. HEHEHEHE
