I've said it before, I'll say it again....

Tyler Perry must be stopped
Get ready for Janet Jackson as you've never seen her before. So says Tyler Perry, who has Jackson starring along with himself, songstress Jill Scott and Sharon Leal (Dreamgirls) in his forthcoming "Why Did I Get Married?" feature.

"She's playing a college professor — actually, an author and professor of psychology," Perry reports. He is quick to add that Jackson "absolutely" has the chops to pull off the part convincingly. "I can't wait for people to see her like this."

You see that picture at the top of the post? THAT'S Tyler Perry, in drag. Cuz apparently the only way to get people to his plays is the prospect of watching a black man with prosthetic boobs jump around on stage waiving a 9mm.

For fucks sake, people, stop giving this man your money. I'm gonna give you a second to read the link at the top of this post to get a feel for this........done? Good.
The only way this movie should be released is as a lure to get Tyler Perry, his production company, and Southern Baptists in a theatre laced with demolition charges. You hear that TP? You're days are numbered, fuck-o.

Oh, and Janet Jackson playing an author and professor of psychology? I guess she must have gotten her chops playing hard hitting Oscar worthy roles in Nutty Professor II and Poetic Justice......where's my Maalox?

I've sat here for a few minutes trying to figure out how to express my absolute loath for this idiot -- how the Madea character is nothing more than a fucking modern-day minstrel, how his movies are the most simplistic of tripe which seems to insinuate that its audience, no matter how many strides foward it may take, is always nothing more than a bunch of stereotypically ignorant, church-going buffoons.

Better I just say that you're absolutely right -- Tyler Perry is fucking worthless.

Janet Jackson plays a psychology professor? Reminds of the Bond movie where Denise Richards played a nuclear physicist. Equally believable, too.

Jesus, this lowest-common-denominator bullshit needs to stop.

Is there a shortage of African-American actresses that forces Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, this guy and Janet Jackson fill them all?

Chez - I ran into this schmuck in Hollywood a while I wish I literally had "run into him", with my car.

GWCH - Apparently there is, seeing as how the only female leads in major releases ARE dudes....

TK - You're alive! I thought by now you would have tripped over a rake and fallen into a wood chipper thumb first! Praise Jeebus!
