The 2018 BET Awards : See all the highlights from the BET Awards

Published

on

The 2018 BET Awards took place Sunday night.
Host Jamie Foxx kicked off the ceremony by telling viewers he was there to celebrate.
Foxx brought “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan to the stage and asked him to recite the powerful line from the film, “Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from ships, cause they knew death was better than bondage.”

Later, Foxx invited Childish Gambino to join him on stage to thank him for his socially conscious song, “This Is America.”
A poignant moment of the show came when Tyler Perry presented Anita Baker with the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Foxx sang a medley of her greatest hits.
Rapper Meek Mill debuted a new single since being released from prison in April titled, “Stay Woke,” which explores inequality in the justice system.

BARACK OBAMA has shared a sweet and touching message for his wife Michelle to celebrate her birthday.
Michelle, who turned 55 years old yesterday, has captured the world’s heart again with the release of her memoir Becoming, which was released at the end of last year, and her candid and empowering international book tour.
In a social media post shared across his Instagram and Twitter accounts, Obama shared a throwback picture of himself with his arm around Michelle.
He captioned the image: “I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today – you’re one of a kind, Michelle Obama. Happy Birthday!”
Michelle responded to the tweet sharing her appreciation for the birthday messages she received.

She wrote: “Thank you all so much for the birthday love—I love you all right back! Feeling so incredibly thankful for my South Side roots, my soul-affirming partner and daughters, and every unimaginable twist and turn over these 55 years. Can’t wait to see what becomes of the next one!”
The pair marked their 26th wedding anniversary last year.
Aside from her birthday, the former first lady has another reason to celebrate. Her book, Becoming, which has been a global hit, has topped the Amazon best seller list for 47 days, making it the book that’s held the top spot the longest since Fifty Shades of Grey back in 2012.
Becoming has sold more copies than any other book released in the United States last year.
Due to the overwhelming interest in Michelle’s book tour, she has extended it, adding extra dates including an event at the O2 in London this April.

Diversity to play a large role in Marvel’s future

Published

on

Marvel president Kevin Feige spoke on the future of Marvel Studios in a recent podcastFOLLOWING THE success of Black Panther, Hollywood has seen the true impact of diversity and the benefits of inclusivity in cinema – and Marvel have announced plans to double up on representation for future movies.
In a recent podcast, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, revealed that diversity will play a big role in its’ future in front of and behind the cameras.
On Variety’s ‘Playback’ podcast, Feige said: “[Black Panther] is the beginning. That worked out as well [and] has encouraged us to head in the direction we were going to head in anyway. But you look at that film, it is incredible. That movie would not have been what it was if everyone sitting at the table looked like you or me. And that is true for all the movies.”
Black Panther smashed box office records worldwide and became the highest-rated Marvel movie, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

“As Marvel Studios has grown, it is the same thing, almost half-man and half-woman. That may become more women in the coming years based on the newest team members who continue to grow. We try to grow and promote in house,” said the Marvel boss.
Feige added that “when you have diverse voices, you get better stories and you get more exciting stories, you get more surprising stories. And that is something that is very clear.”
In March, Captain Marvel will be the first MCU’s female-led film co-directed by female director Anna Boden. The studio plans to expand and fulfil their diversity agenda, by including a Black Widow solo film set to be directed by Cate Shortland and they’re also reportedly developing a Shang-Chi film.

Video: Cynthia Erivo apologies for messing up US national anthem

Published

on

The Grammy and Tony Award-winning musician said she was “nervous and tired” after performing Star Spangled Banner at a basketball game.

BRITISH-NIGERIAN actress Cynthia Erivo has apologised for forgetting the words to the US national anthem at a basketball game.
The Widows star was asked to perform Star Spangled Banner at the Nets vs. Lakers game in New York on Tuesday night, but the 31-year-old stumbled over the words as she struggled to remember the lyrics. She then stopped singing altogether to regain her composure, before starting over and singing the song again.

Erivo apologised for the mishap, telling fans she was “nervous and tired”.
She tweeted: “Some people have quiet mess ups, some people mess in front of the world. I’m human and I mess up in the same way as everyone else, so if you were watching tonight, I’m sorry, I was nervous and tired. I strive for perfection, so right now no one can beat me up more than myself.”

Erivo’s performance was defended online by fans, with one user writing: “You sounded brilliant! Words are words— 90% of Americans get the words wrong to that anthem. Your gorgeous voice was all I heard. Your view of failure is what everyone’s view of perfection is. Beautiful as always.”
2019 is shaping up to be a big year for Erivo, as she recently announced plans to release an album with music label Verve Record and will star in a Harriet Tubman biopic which is set to begin production next fall.
