Joker of the Week



I know I said I was nominating Rod the loser, but I have to give this week's title to Lil' Kim. (Polls will return next week). In any event, Grown Woman alerted me to the fact that Lil' Kim is apparently distraught about her portrayal as a jump off in the movie Notorious. Apparently, she also complained about the actress who played her and claimed that she was "too dark." She allegedly wanted Christina Milian to play her. Pause. Think about it. Guffaw. Yes it ridiculous, laughable and sad all at the same time.

Biggie's mom said, “Do you know why the character was too dark for her? Because she’s a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body, and you can tell the world I said it, because those are Lil’ Kim’s words. She should be ashamed of herself...Tell Lil’ Kim to go find herself, go drink a cup of green tea and get a life! This movie is not about Lil’ Kim. She felt we used her character to promote [but] this movie is about my son. … Lil’ Kim needs to go sit down.”

Ha! I have to say Mama Wallace is right. The movie was about Biggie's life--everyone else was a side character. On who played her, Ms. Naturi Naughton is roughly Lil Kim's old complexion and petite. Ms. Kim does not look a darn thing like Milian. But you be the judge....







She needs therapy, the Lord and some unconditional love.

HONORABLE MENTION: Traveldiva. Yeah, I'm giving myself a nod. Michelle Obama was having lunch at Georgia Brown's, the restaurant right outside my building. I actually saw crowds of people excited about something, but I thought it was some kind of protest, so I was like, just move so I can eat my Cosi salad. DARN IT! I could have gotten a pic!

Wow, I would have to agree with the honorable mention. It wasn't quite crazy enough to warrant a full nomination, but you gotta get something. ;-)
As for Lil' Kim, she saddens me. She really does. She's got a lot of issues with self-perception, self-esteem and anything dealing with her "self."
Initially, I thought Naturi, formerly of 3LW, was a little too dark for her, but it's a freakin' movie. The only person who needs to be a dead ringer for someone in a biopic is the star.
Kim used to be my girl and all but she misplaced her mind years ago and I hope she finds it soon.

Never been a fan of LK and haven't seen the movie, but didn't the US just cross one of the biggest "colour" hurdles in its history???

PJD - It was necessary. LOL.

SJ - HAAA! I think as long as the person is in the complexion range--it's fine--and naturi was in LK's range. Christina is most definitely not. It's very sad.

TD - Good point. Alas we still have a ways to go.

I recently saw a picture of Kim and I gasped out loud.

I'd like Beyonce to play me in my movie.
