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.”

Solange And Husband Alan Ferguson SPLIT After 11 Years Together: ‘A N*gga Ain’t Perfect’

Rumors have been swirling for quite some time, but now it’s official official — Solange and Alan Ferguson have separated after being together 11 years .

They met in 2008 after being introduced by Janelle Monae and eventually got married in 2014.

Solange took to Instagram to share a note on life and confirm their separation.

She writes:

the past 2 years have brought me more physical and spiritual transition and evolution than ever before
my body left me with no choice but to listen and be still
within that stillness i begin my journey in confronting my worst enemy, fear.
ive lived my best and worst moments in front of the lens and gaze of the world since i was a teenager. ive always tried to live in my truth no matter how ugly or full of love it is. ive also tried to carve out the space to protect my heart, and my life as it unfolds, evolves, and changes. 11 years ago i met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life. early this year we separated and parted ways, (and tho it ain’t nan no body business ?) i find it necessary to protect the sacredness of my personal truth and to live in it fully just as I have before and will continue to do. it is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself. a nigga ain’t perfect, but im leaning into the fear of the unknown and all the glory and power i know exist within god and the universes grace. may all of your transitions no matter how big or small, be kind to you and filled with incredible love and light!

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!

Nipsey Hussle’s Baby Mama Says She’s NOT An Bad Parent

Nipsey Hussle’s entire family has joined forces to get full custody of his 10-year-old daughter Emani, but her mother says that she’s perfectly capable of caring for her daughter.

via TMZ:

Tanisha Foster says in legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she and Nipsey shared responsibility for parenting 10-year-old Emani.

She seems to be rebutting the family’s contention she’s not capable of caring for the child, saying they are ignoring the fact Nipsey provided for her … setting her up in an apartment and providing for her livelihood. She’s insinuating she’s been cut off and that’s not what Nipsey would want.

She also says, she’s not the only person involved in the case with a “problem past,” but she says she’s choosing not to “sling mud.” 

She says she can’t pay rent, she’s been cut off financially and is in desperate shape. Foster notes the lifestyle she and Emani were used to before Nipsey’s death won’t be the same … but she is willing to make it work to the best of her ability. She’s asking the judge to at least give her visitation rights

Foster says, “If everyone was truly interested in doing what is best for Emani, they would treat me as her mother and not in the manner that they have.

Nipsey’s family was awarded temporary custody of Emani, claiming Tanisha is an unfit mother.

I don’t feel like the family would be going through all this if they believed Emani was safe with her mother — do you?
