Tyler Perry Scoffs At Critics Who Cite His Work As “C**nery” 

Tyler Perry is proud to be a staple in the growing diversity path in Hollywood, even if it means he has to take a few punches from his critics.


Speaking with The Root’s Danielle Young about his new film, Boo! A Madea Halloween, Perry dropped a few lines on why his work shouldn’t be labeled as coonery. Since the cinematic debut of Mabel “Madea” Simmons in 2005, Perry has centered his films around the gun-toting grandma with favorable box office results. In the years that followed the flicks, Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea Goes to Jail, the director’s work was slammed for not extending the identity of a comical black character. Perry likes to think his extension of production, acting and writing jobs to people of color are far from brown nosing.

''He Thinks I'm Just Some Little Black Girl From Harlem''

Azealia Banks is speaking in depth about what she says went down between her and Russell Crowe in a Beverly Hills hotel suite over the weekend.

The rapper spoke exclusively to E! News about the events leading up to the moment Banks is claiming the Oscar-winning actor "called me a n----r, choked me, threw me out and spat at me."

Nicki Minaj Could Barely Control Her Emotions While Meeting Lauryn Hill 

Nicki Minaj may be one of hip-hop’s most successful emcees, and she may be able to brunch with Beyonce and Jay Z whenever their schedules permit, but that didn’t stop the Pinkprint artist from completely losing her mind backstage at the TidalX:1015 concert when she met Ms. Lauryn Hill.
