Billie Holiday just rolled over twice in her grave. Missy Daniels hates black women. I will not support nor watch anything this fag is associated with.

He has received more opportunity's in a shorter period of time than Spike Lee. I hope he does her justice without over exaggerating truth.

Nice! Miss Holliday was a strong & talented woman with many struggles. Great story to tell. Lee can't fuck this up. I mean, "Lady Sings the Blues" laid the groundwork for the character on screen so it will be interesting to see Lee's approach.

Sorry to break it to him but her story has already been told. I want to know how this will be any different or better than what Diana, Richard and Billy Dee did back in the 70s. All these Hollywood types do is recycle the same old shit for the new masses. Come out with a movie about Ralph Bunche, Benjamin Banneker or someone who's not affiliated with entertainment and I'll bite. But as much as I admire people like Billie Holliday I'm tired of Hollywood acting like that's all Black people can handle or want to see. There are a million more stories to be told besides us being slaves, mammies, singers and dancers.

Bravo!@ms mac. Let different narratives of us be told - doctors, inventors, engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists.... Watched Billie Holiday singing 'strange fruit' recently and knew she was way ahead of her time

Don't need a retelling of this story especially if it's going to be poorly done.

I totally agree with you Ms. Mac!

Cosign with ms mac to the 9th power. I don't see how he could do it any better than what Diana Ross and Billy Dee played the hell out Lady Day. Tired of recycled stories. I will pass.

Waiting on Lee to do The Jussie Smollet Story. That should be pure comedy.

@11:21 am those aren’t his kids. That’s Evan Ross, Diana Ross’ son.

@ Ms Mac Miss Diana is determined to have some part of herself attached to Billie Holiday- even if it’s her son in the biopic. You know she’s the one who put Evan in this film.

Lee Daniles ain't worth a damn and I don't have anything to do with him. Watched a couple seasons of Empire till it got too stoopid.

I'm surprised he was able to get a hookup for another film after he supported Jussie.

More power to his ass, I guess. I just know I won't watch this either.

Unknown said...

First of all he need to finish up Star. And Lee ain’t slick. He only doing this movie to put gay scenes all over it because according to some report Billie was Bisexual and had lesbian relationships

Jesmit said...

@ Unknown, that slipped my mind and that's what the idiot is going to focus on I'm sure. If he does that, he's just a piece of wuss because everybody knew that about and going through the comments, everyone focused on her individuality and talent not sexuality.

Andra Day reminds me of a classier, intelligent, mature version of Rihanna but with actual musical talent because Andra is extremely talented. She even sounds like what Rihanna would sound like if she could actually sing.

But I hate Andra paired up with this demon. I think Andra is perfect for the role but I know Leeaky Booty Daniels is gonna have her exploited and degraded in this film and add gross, deplorable shit because he hates/envies women.

These are the kinds of flags I hate. Every gay man doesn't hate women but he's a fag that hates women, especially black women, because deep down he wants a big wet vagina between his legs that his Jew husband can stroke every night.

Nasty ass misogynist nigga. I bet his butthole is so blown out it looks like a bullet wound.

Lee is going to turn her life into pure filth and have her looking like a reprobate instead of doing like Berry Gordy and making a descent movie. Lee is too damn gross. Remember how vile Precious and Monsters Ball was. Hell no!

I will never watch Precious, the trailer alone and how traumatized folks was seeing that shit, is a hell fucking no for me. I did see the other one with Halle and Puffy and thought Puffy was a very good actor, but that whole shit had me a bit traumatized too. He does hate black women, I experience that shit in the spiritual communities all those gay ass male "spiritualist" be trying to come for my ass and let them bitch hoes know, just cause you take a dick in yo ass you are not a women!!! and you will respect this high priestess because this Auset/Oshun is always in the market for spiritual target practice. Fuck around and get offered up as a blood sacrifice, when I light some candles on yo bitch asses. I fucking despise the one's that hate women. Either respect the divine feminine or die!!! we birth you assholes not the other way around.

Holiday: A Lesbian Story

It is the story of an African American jazz singer who at all costs must repress her homosexuality or allow it to cost her her fame. In her story Billie Holiday is faced with adversity as she fights for gay & transgender rights and at times deals with an unsavory racist atmosphere.

It is being written and directed by Hollywood master talent Lee Daniels.

Ooh a Billy Holiday film by...oh wait. Never mind, I see Miss Daniels is in charge which means her story will have a spin on it to fit current narratives. You can keep that film.

Why... There is nothing him and this lady about to produce that will be better than Lady Sings the Blues
