John Singleton Wanted To Create Lil Kim Biopic Before He Passed

John Singleton was in talks of creating a Lil Kim biopic before he transitioned!

During her visit to The Real Thursday (Nov. 7) Lil Kim told the world that he approached her about it.

The rapper said,

“I’ve gotten so many offers. I’m talking, major offers… even BET, Lifetime, Lionsgate. But the thing is, I had to be ready, and I think now I’m ready to tell the story.”

She said Singleton was the one who wanted to tell it.

“Him and I went [to a party]. He was like, ‘I want you to be my celebrity date.’ But I knew what that meant. He wants to talk, right? So he said to me, ‘Kim, why aren’t we doing this movie? You’re a walking best-seller.’ And I was like, ‘Well, I’m waiting for you.’”

She added that she wouldn’t have it any other way, but unfortunately, he passed before they were able to make it happen.

“I said to him, I always said if I did a movie about my life, I’m not doing it with anybody but you. And then he passed away.”

 Singleton passed away in April after suffering a massive stroke. The iconic film and TV series director was the brains behind classics like Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice and Baby Boy just to name a few

Summer Walker Is Done , Y’all Can Have The Music & I’ma Head Out’

In a lengthy post shared on social media, Summer Walker vented that she’s not just over it, she’s done with the music industry.

It’s just been a couple of weeks since her first album Over It made its debut. But now Summer is quitting music.

She wrote,

“na fr though I’ve decided y’all don’t deserve me lol I knew from day one I was to real for this s***. y’all can have the music & ima just head out. f*** the interviews, photo shoots, videos, & really the shows too.”

Fortunately for her fans, she said she’ll finish her tour, but warned that we won’t hear much from her after that.

“I’ll finish this tour out tho. I’m just a regular person, nothing more. lol people got this fame s*** f***ed up. I been me from day one, I’m not bout to start acting different, talking different, treating people different, or looking different. people really expect too much from you.”

She added,

“Everyday / everything isn’t a miss America bad b**** contest, & I don’t feel the need to put others down to stay relevant. people really just DISCONNECTED…. hiding behind these apps, these filters, the clothes, the makeup, the hair lol a lot of y’all need to step back & get into yourselves.. from a different perspective. take the same amount of time that you normally do to prepare/improve your physical but apply it to your spirit & become COMFORTABLE with the real you, whoever that may be as long as your not hurting anyone

She went on to say that fans need to be more worried about self-acceptance than securing the bag.

“That same amount of time you take to chase the “bag” try putting that same amount of energy into patience, acceptance, understanding, self awareness, self love but I know no one gives a shit about what I’m saying so yeah. peace love & light”

Ciara On Owning Her Masters ‘I No Longer Felt Creatively Handcuffed’

It sure doesnt feel like it but yes  Ciara has been in the game for 15 years!

The singer dropped her debut studio album Goodies on Sept. 28, 2004. It featured hit songs like “Goodies”, “Oh” and “1,2 Step.”

And now, she’s schooling us on how it’s done as years later, she owns the masters to her music. She said during a recent interview,

“It’s an incredible chapter. It’s pretty cool to know you’re out here running around and hustlin’ and bustlin’ and you’re not only performing songs you wrote, but you also own the masters to those songs.”

She added that it’s all a dream come true.

“I used to dream about that while being signed to a label. I was like, the day that I get a chance, I want to own my own masters. I want to do it differently. Because after a while you kind of get frustrated with having to go through the same process — when you believe in something, when you have a vision for it, but the person who makes the decisions doesn’t share the same vision. When I got the chance, I actually wasn’t even planning on doing it in that moment.”

Ciara, who launched her own record label, Beauty Marks Entertainment, added that her chance to own her music came with the successful release of “Level Up” in June 2018.

“This was the moment I was waiting for and it’s like God gave it to me. It was the best feeling in the world. I no longer felt creatively handcuffed.”

As for being in the game so long, she said,

“It’s special. It’s kind of surreal — it’s like pinching myself, and going, ‘This is literally 15 years ago.’ Like, 15 years ago sounds so far away. To see this generation dancing to that song like it’s a new song, and it’s falling right into the pocket of what’s happening now, it’s kind of crazy. It also shows you the cycle of music and how different times repeat themselves all over again.”

“I feel motivated, like when I was younger. Everything happened so fast. Literally one song was No. 1, one song was top three, next song was top three. Naturally, you can kind of just keep rolling with it versus soaking in the moment when it’s happening.”

“I’ve started working on enjoying the moments when they happen, and not looking for the next moment so fast.”

Chrisette Michele Reveals Why She Got Divorced

Chrisette Michele is opening up about her recent divorce. The “Epiphany” singer wed her manager at the time, Doug “Biggs” Ellison in 2016, before they split in 2018.

In details she tells the story that they tied the knot in Las Vegas and that while she had experienced much success by then, she was still very immature.

She shares,

Aston Martin Music drops. I’m in LA, a small-time millionaire, Grammy award-winning, and happily dating “grown-ups” but… I’m a child. A very successful… kid. Aaaaand, it literally never occurred to me that I’d missed a step until… Wedding Bells in Vegas (circa: 2016-2018). I walked down the aisle to “Love You Like A Love Song”, a techno club record TOTALLY meant for high heeled, couch dancing at LIV in Miami (or maybe Lavo in Vegas). Childish.”

She added after their divorce, she realized that he desired things that typically come with a traditional marriage (i.e. living in the same city and having children).

“I’m divorced now. I think I got married to try adulting on for size. Didn’t fit. My ex had latched onto the idea that adulting was a “thing”, and I’d never gotten the memo. Sure I brought home fairly large slabs of bacon, made up the bed and opened a few businesses but… it wasn’t until after we divorced that I realized he had the intentions of living in the same city, raising small opinionated beasts who would grow IN MY STOMACH, and eating at the same restaurant every Sunday.”

She ultimately revealed she’s not a fan of “settling down” at all.

“Apparently this soul quelling idea is called … “settling down”. Eeek… I just threw up in my mouth a little.”

“One of my girlfriends text me. She said, “I’m still hoping for magic for you.” She was talking about love. I wanted to say, “Is it ok for a woman not to be thinking about marriage for the same amount of time as any given man?”. I wanted to ask, “Is it enough for me to love traveling, meeting new people and long lavish walks thru Whole Foods?”. Am I “not grown-up”, if I’m not constantly wondering about love and a home for 2? To avoid experiencing normal “Yes I’m Judging You” thoughts from my home gurl, I said, “I’m not pressed”. To recreate my whole existence to fit into someone else’s? And then be stuck in one place forever? Yeah. No. Not right now.”

Chrisette, who shared that her own parents have been married for nearly 40 years, adding that she’s not against having “A Couple of Forevers” in her own life in the future, but she’s not after it right now.

Maybe I’ll be SHOCKED into a Couple of Forevers. My love language is touch and I love to cuddle. Love is…nice. I’m open minded. I’ll try new things… but ummm… it’s quite likely too late that I’ll ever grow up. I skipped over that part of my twenties and I’m not sure you ever get that back. I’m “humaning” (stole that ”word” from a pal). This is MY human experience. I’m patient enough to watch my life unfold, trust God to forgive, reveal and restore and move forward. I fall. I get embarrassed. I stay at moms, eat good, then take my vitamins and get back out there. Am I “on the market”? You can’t buy me. Am I “single”? I’m complete. Loving me is complicated, mostly because I’m content. Kids don’t love people because they have a nice house and diamonds. Kids love people because they smile, laugh at their jokes, spend time on the couch and at the movies. I’m a kid that way… don’t need anything but the simple, beautiful, present human.”

And from the sounds of it, sis just fine with being single ….LET HER BE!

Cleaning House : Ari Lennox Is Looking For New Management And Lawyer

Ari Lennox‘s team a whole MESS.? Apparently the Dreamville starlet with one of the best albums
this year is looking to replace both her lawyer and manager. She took to Twitter to break some ppl off:

“LOOKING FOR A LAWYER AND NEW MANAGEMENT.”

She continued:

“I’m so happy to know who truly cares about my well being. It’s d*mn sure not certain people that I thought…People want to be there for the accolades but not the real grind. People love you when you’re the sweet baby doll but not when you’re human. Don’t want no more fake soulless sh*t around me.”

Just weeks ago, she shockingly declared that she was over the music industry, saying that she was done performing live.

Ari tweeted:

“After this year I’ll continue to drop music. But I’m not performing anymore outside of ig live or YouTube. God is good. I will pay back what was offered to me but literally I’m too thorough to be playing with my energy. People don’t know what happens behind the scenes.”

But, when her fellow industry newbie, Summer Walker, expressed the same feelings – she, ironically, encouraged her to keep going

The music industry is like a drug , once yo7 try it if your not strong its will F*CK you up!
