I hate when people make movies without consulting family and friends. That Aaliyah movie was trash because of it. I thought this one would be different since Aretha expressed wanting JHud but I will pass on this one.

No problem. I don't think anyone is going to see it because Jennifer Hudson is in it.... She's hard to digest. Kind of unlikable.

Although her 'core' family members may feel this way...a FB post and all caps does not translate to legitimacy. C'mon Snitch.

Sorry, I left the thread after Kecalf.

Kecalf. What kind of name is that for an African-American. I mean Negro. I mean colored. I mean black. You know what I mean.

I wonder who’s going to play Glenn Thurman. Re-Re’s 8th husband. Do you know the one. He taught Aretha‘s son what gay meant literally.

Looks like they had her put on a little weight for this role.

Areatha was finer than that. Go look at some old pics.

Why do yall keep saying that shit about Glynn??? How do yall know that for a fact??

I personally dont think Jen is a good choice. They should have found a newcomer but it is what it is. Anyway I read Aretha approved of the script before she died so I am lost. Did they change the script after she died???

Well we really want to know about ReRe's father being her own baby daddy. Whether Kecalf and his brother/cousin/nephew likes it or not. Woman could sing but ….baaaaby what a mess. They got one time to get this shit right. Role em!!

Thats that old school black sh*t where they want you to sweep shi*t under the rug....Fuck that, if you gonna tell your story then fukin tell it....Theres a lot of unorthodox sh*t that went on in Arethas life....Incest, molestation, i heard she use to shoot-up(horse), drink and talk shit.......If the story aint about the truth then fuck it.....I think Tina & New Edition kept shit real intheir autobiographies

Nobody asked you to participate cuz they don't have to. Make your own movie and write your own book. Shabye.

You might actually make a better movie when you don't have the main character lying to you to make herself look good. Sometimes you can do your research through friends, family , acquaintances and get a better idea of who that person really was.

1st, I agree with the person that said Jhud is hard to digest. I dont' like her as a singer, nor as an actress. Something about her just rubs me wrong. Another thing, Aretha wants her story to be moonbeams and rainbows, but we all know that ain't the case. It is what it is, she's dead and gone. Tell the story already. And if you are a true fan of hers, you already know that her life was a huge dumpster fire. I get so sick of the older generation that believes in keeping up an image of perfection.

Jhud also did the biopic of Winnie Mandela and apparently Winnie wasn't happy about it either. She may just wanna stop with the biopics already.

I'll pass. I'm sure this movie will be complete fictional depiction. And JHud is a very hard pill to swallow. Something about her is just so ... so ... ugh ...

Felicia said...

I am so confused.. DIDN’t Aretha Hans pick JHud for the role?

I don't think Jhud is a good choice at all. Boooooooo!
