Takers, Rock The Bells & Lauryn Hill

My weekend in a nutshell:

Takers:

  • I only went to see the movie because Idris Elba was in a pair of underwear.
  • The movie was like Tyler Perry’s version of Heat. Chris Brown and T.I. should stick to music.
  • Idris Elba should stick to walking around movies in his underwear, preferably with his British accent.

Rock The Bells:

  • Women, when you’re attending a concert at an outdoor venue, do yourself a favor and leave the wedge heels, stilettos & platforms at home, when you fall, people will laugh. Never mind, go ahead and wear them comedy relief is always good.
  • Last year I attended RTB and I did notice the drastic changes this year in regards to the access the “press” was allowed. Basically, next to nothing.  Because of the last minute credentials being sent out it left no time to secure interviews with some of the artists and it was a rat race to the front of the press pit to get your two song allotted photo time.
  • Ticket prices: Uh, apparently they’ve never heard of this thing called a recession.

Lauryn Hill:

  • She’s not the savior returning to save hip-hop. She’s an artist and free to express herself any way she wants. Even if that means she’s singing songs at 10000 RPMS a minute.
  • I’d still rather listen to Lauryn at her  worse than  Nikki Minaj at her best.
  • So what she has 6 kids. Unlike another artist, she doesn’t have 3 kids by 3 different men.

      Yes, but then I thought *what if it wasn’t all his*! Which led me to investigating padding for me..and yup…they have that booty pop for men..lol

    Blessings FBC,
    I liked Takers because I didn’t expect much going into the theater, it actually surpassed my exectations.. I did have to contend with my wife moaning everytime Idris graced the screen…lol!
    I experienced a woman in high heels tragedy last night at the Nas & Damien Marley show at the 9:30 club. This young lady pratically begged me to let her sit in my seat because her shoes were beating up her feet. I had to tell her no because I was seated beside my wife and I didn’t want to get the look, lol!
    I love your blog!!!

      See that’s why I don’t understand..if you know you’re not going to have a seat and it’s basically a standing room only venue..why would you walk around in heels..then have the nerve to ask for someone’s seat..gtfoh..lol

    I’ll just wait until Takers comes out on video so I can pause that scene ya’ll are taking about in the comments! Everybody else in that movie does not deserve my money. RTB $150 a tix!! ummm..no. As much I love and adore Ms Hill, tickets were too expensive.
    (Thanks for sharing pics on twitter)

      Believe me..If I had to pay for one..I wouldn’t have gone either! Not even with the poss. of buying a $66 ticket…I”m not sitting on some dirt for $66..lol

    I have not seen Takers yet, so that was a GREAT spoiler! LOL Idris in his underwear is definitely worth $12…
    I attend RTB every year except this year…I live in CA now and since Snoop was the “headliner” I decided to pass.

      Yeah I didn’t last to see Snoop..by the time his set started late, I was already home in the bed…but since I practically live across the st. from the venue..I was still able to hear it.

    I was actually looking forward to seeing Takers … “Tyler Perry’s version of Heat” is so so #COLD …

    Takers was a mess…I’m just glad it was not my $18 that was spent! And I too agree with the Lauryn Hill/Nikki Minaj comment! LOL!!
