Queen Latifah to Star as Ella Fitzgerald
Twentieth Century Fox announced the cast of "Bewitched, Bothered &
Bewildered," a movie based on the life of Jazz icon Ella Fitzgerald.
Slated to play the starring role? None other than Queen Latifah.
"Ella's always been a huge inspiration to me," said Latifah. "She's the reason I've switched from Hip-hop to Jazz."
Production of "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered" is set to begin November 2008. This post is false, but wouldn't Queen Latifah make the perfect Ella?
Is Michelle More Inspiring than Barack?
I ran across a very interesting article about a new sculpture to hit New York. Sculptor Daniel Edwards has released his nude bust entitled "Michelle Obama's Makeover for America."
The sculpture, a tasteful and respectful nude, was created with the idea that Michelle Obama is the embodiment of America's future. The sculpture makes her look like a Nubian Queen, though, so I wonder what the artist is trying to say here about America's future.
Also, he emblazoned a waving American flag across her chest. What's confusing about the flag is that Edwards has splashed the flag over the right side of her chest, not over her heart. Maybe the images I saw are just mirrored, but if they aren't, what was the artist trying to say by not placing the flag across her heart?
Just some things to consider. Maybe Lilith eZine will weigh in, as our most prevalent art gallery presnce here on the WebRing blogs?
