now i am not here to say whether not tyler perry is a liar or not. what i am going to say is this:
much like his films, the story he gave on oprah was bits and pieces of other folks. did his father not remind us all of joe jackson. did his childhood beatings not remind us of penny from good times? did the sex life he refrained from speaking about not remind us of richard simmons?
the interview was a question away from being worse than the chris brown bowtie/larry king interview.
but what he managed to achieve was give us preface to his coming out.
so now, when he says “i’m gay” with tears, we’ll (you’ll) all say: well, that’s because those bad men touched him.
one of my followers asked yesterday: and when he comes out, then what?
answer: his films begin holding some sort of reality – some sort of truth. he gains credibility in many circles. until then, we (i) see him like jada pinkett – unbelievable due to that SOMETHING that’s hold him back.
dear tyler perry,
good job on film promotion yesterday on oprah.
that time of the year is fast approaching. you know that time of the year when we begin hearing the following:
1. 2011 is going to be my year.
2. i’m leaving all the haters in 2010 and doing me this year.
3. i’m going to do me this year. i’m tired of living for everybody else.
4. i’m gonna move to _____________ and follow my dreams. there’s nothing for me in this town.
soon after that time of the year we hit this time of the year:
1. as soon as i get on my feet and pay off these bills i’m going to do everything i said i would for new year.
it may not seem like it – but i actually enjoy people who make these resolutions. because i get to look good when i succeed and they’re still planning.
again, you can’t hope everyone follows and achieves their dream. when that happens there will be no folks to make our fast food and clean our bathrooms.
working on a few books in which i am collaborating with several folks.
if you’re interested in getting your words published – and ready to be open and honest with yourself – get at me. i’m sure one of the books will have space for you.
that’s it folks.
