Tyler Perry and Steve Harvey Bring a Dose of Laughs and a Drop of Reality to Get Folks Juiced-up for the Holidays (and Beyond)!

doc_lg

No more drama! No more Madea? If fans had to choose they might say ‘No more drama for $200’ as Tyler Perry says he’s retiring the Madea character. It might be easier for them getting rid of the drama in life than for seeing the end of Madea. But at least Perry threw-in the fact that their layaway got pre-paid.

More Family Feud! More Little Big Shots! That’d be no-brainer for Steve Harvey. He’s set to host an upcoming holiday special where kids get to say and do their talent thing. While Perry and Harvey enjoy doing those projects, they know that in showbiz you gotta find ways to reinvent yourself.

In their work, they deliver a dose of laughs on stage and a drop of reality off stage. Even if it doesn’t get everybody excited for the holidays it might get some fans juiced-up for the new year. Either way, there’s enough good times and good vibes that can take us into next year for going from pre-lit to major hit.

Harvey says his wife loves to decorate for the season. Whether that means going with a pre-lit tree or starting from scratch is anyone’s guess. But the path we take to being fully-lit personally & professionally means embracing the things in life that come pre-lit: gifts, talents, calling, purpose, passion and dreams.

Perry and Harvey might explain in their tweetable moments that they’ve done the same in their careers. The holiday trees at home and across the country get to standout by adding some decorations. A good mix of ornaments, ribbons, tinsel and a tree-topper. So, success in going from pre-lit to major hit takes:

  1. Skill

While talent is something that usually comes naturally, skill is doing it with your eyes closed. Perry and Harvey spent years developing their skill by turning an ability into a capability. While talent gives us the ability to shine, skill gives us the capability to elevate things that come naturally to a level of superiority.

  1. Smarts

Harvey jokes about how his new beard has made him look and feel smarter. Well at least in the eyes of his grandkids. They keep quizzing him and he keeps answering. The smarts that makes folks lit professionally comes with more knowledge (as in book-smarts) and insight (as in street-smarts).

  1. Social

tyler-perry6

Perry was a recent presenter at an event honoring the legacy of Nelson Mandela. You remember, it’s where Beyoncé graced the stage like an African goddess. What he’s doing by supporting everyday lives at home and abroad shows a level of care and influence that brings social impact.

  1. Soul

Perry and Harvey give props to the God-side in them reaching new heights. Sometimes the things that hold us back are tied to F.E.A.R. – a case of ‘Fool’s Error Acting Ready’ to kill your hopes and dreams. But when God stirs your soul you get juiced-up with a new vision for going from pre-lit to major hit.

The Madea winddown tour is set for next year. Perry believes it’s time to bring new things to life. That’s also true when the holiday season ends and the resolutions-rollout begins. When we hit the stage for the upcoming 2019 wind-up it’s a good time for ‘no more drama’ and celebrating a ‘new you, new woo.’

Tip: Going from pre-lit to major hit personally and professionally means you don’t stop ‘til you get enough skill, smarts, social and soul.

Talkback: What’s in-store for your holidays, for your new year?

A Cool Way for Flexing Style, Game & Soul in How We Roll (Old-School Flava)

The Met Gala is still bringing the stars out in full effect. There went a pregnant Serena Williams and a radiant Rihanna on the Red Carpet. It seems Diddy got tired of standing while his girl posed for pictures. These days he and Ne-Yo are putting their money where their heart is while still making things hot.

Recently Ne-Yo decided to invest in a school for the next crop of tech stars. He told Tech Crunch “This is not, ‘oh, let me attach my name to something.’ This is something that I’m genuinely passionate about.” They’re investing time and money in the next chance for others to grind by making passion do what it do!

They’re still doing their thing working with new artists and emerging talent. That’s how Diddy made a name for himself in the record business. But they want to prepare students not just for the passion worlds of ballers and beats. So they’re providing the training to help launch whiz kids for the tech-savvy world.

Social media went crazy when Diddy decided to sit on the stairs at the Met Gala entrance. Not long ago he was the one going crazy about Kendrick Lamar’s new album. But after Diddy opened a school in Harlem last year, he’s using his talents to connect students with the passion worlds of brains and biz too.

Ne-Yo’s looking forward to his next music project soon. Diddy is looking ahead to the unfolding of his latest legacy project. They’re not doing things just as a means to making more ends but also as a way for social uplift through the box office and hometown blocks. Just look what their ‘passion fruit’ can do!

Met Gala brought stars out at night. A pregnant Serena looking out of sight. Red Carper radiant was Ri-Ri. In full effect they’d be. Seems Diddy got tired of standing. With girl friend he was photo bombing. These days he and Ne-Yo doing their part. Putting money where their heart. Still making things hot start.

Ne-Yo drops some dollaz for the kids. Investing in next crop of tech star bids. Telling Tech Crunch it’s not just about using his name. But about bridging the passion of his game. Something he feels hopeful about. Maybe a way to lend showbiz clout. Next chance for others to grind. Do what it do and being kind.

Still working with artists and fresh talent. That’s more than a passing comment. How Diddy made a name in biz. Now providing training for the next whiz. Beyond the world of ballers and beats. To a world of reaching new feats. With the tech-savvy tools of today. Where kids learn to code for their payday.

Social media was abuzz. Diddy sat on Met stairs as if ‘What’s up cuz?’ Not long ago he was going crazy good. About Kendrick Lamar’s new album from the ‘hood. A year ago Diddy opened new school. So kids learn more than the golden rule. In the passion worlds of biz and brains. Students can achieve new gains.

Ne-Yo readying for new music mix. Diddy looking ahead to latest legacy fix. Not doing stuff just for the ends. But also for message social uplift sends. Some projects at box office or hometown blocks. So folks can decide not to mess with the glocks. By seeing how ‘passion fruit’ can boost their stocks.

Another big moment, another tear jerker! That could easily describe some of the highlights from this year’s Oscars. With more black nominees in the running, it was a more diverse picture. There were a few special moments too. Mahershala Ali and Ava DuVernay gave fitting toasts to folks that mean the most.

Ali did it while accepting his Best Supporting Actor award. DuVernay shared hers during a Red Carpet moment. On his wife’s support Ali said “I want to thank her for being such a soldier through this process and carrying me through it all.” Hey hot shot, that’s the look & stock of a leader, hook & heart of a winner.

DuVernay is one of the newest producers in Hollywood circles. As the brains behind OWN’s Queen Sugar, she’s giving new talent the opportunity to rise and shine. The thing about leaders like her is that they can separate the diamond from the dust. They know where the dust ends and the dynamo begins.

Ali has been working his way up the acting charts with a recent role in the movie Hidden Figures. His approach to the acting craft was drilled into him by teachers and industry mentors. By his own words of ‘serving the characters’ he shared the accolade and the hook for winning of turning lemons in lemonade.

When asked about advice Oprah has shared with her that stuck, DuVernay gave some ‘Pop Sugar’ saying Oprah once told her “When something’s not going your way, don’t think why is this happening to me, but think why is this happening for me.” No problem: think like a leader and have heart like a winner.

Big moment on Oscars stage. Could have turned into rage. Tear jerker and crowd pleaser. Unforgettable show-stopper. Highlights of what was seen. More black nominees on screen. With special moments to boot. Breakout movies taking the loot. Ali and DuVernay on set. Maybe we ain’t seen nothing yet.

Good toast accepting his award. Best supporting actor applaud. Her moment on Red Carpet quiz. On doing it in showbiz. Ali thanking wife for being good soldier. A class act about being a shoulder. Through ups and downs thick and thin. To praising her with the win. Hot shot with look, stock and leader’s pin.

DuVernay new producer in the mix. A Hollywood circle of chics. As brains behind OWN’s Queen Sugar. Giving new talent chance to think bigger. Rise and shine towards the stars. In how they lay down their cards. To separate diamond from dust. Where dynamo begins is a must.

Ali working his way up. To key roles and filling his cup. With recent Hidden Figures role. Keeping it moving on his sole. Approach to acting craft well set. By teachers, mentors and life’s bet. ‘Serve the characters’ to get paid. Sharing the love and accolade. Winning by turning lemons into lemonade.

In terms of Oprah advice she keeps. Or wants to share with us peeps. About something not going your way. Just think and sometimes pray. What’s happening not about rain. But about turning things into gain. No problem, thus says the leader. Or those who have heart like a winner.

Theme:–The Year of ‘Flashlighting’ – Get Seen!”
A New Way to Shine with Highlights, Insights and Media-bites that’s Exciting (Old-School Flava)

Every day we get to watch history unfold. More often than not its best understood looking backward. But that’s not where we should look for Ava DuVernay. She’s lined-up a $100 million Disney film set to begin shooting this fall. DuVernay is shaking things up in Hollywood and Courtney B. Vance is watching.

This summer DuVernay was quoted in USA Today saying “It’s not the fact that a film can do well, it’s the fact that there’s a community around it, that there’s conversation around it, that a film can push a national moment forward.” She knows others came before her who were breaking glass and kicking…(that’s right).

It’s been a breakout year of sorts as she’s also the brainchild behind OWN’s Queen Sugar. She’s made it this far with the mantra of “do not settle.” Whether in career or relationship this isn’t about being desperate. It’s really about being determined to spark a greater level of awareness reaching new heights.

DuVernay wants to be the story-teller that helps us discuss topics that are tough to swallow. It’s taken her a minute to get to this level of notoriety. But she might be the first to remind us of how not to second-guess or to sellout on the mission. This means sticking to the script that will fulfill profit and purpose.

It’s not clear if DuVernay knows Courtney B. Vance. He took the Emmy for playing Johnnie Cochran in The People v. O.J. Simpson. Vance sees a shift happening in TV that should transfer to movies. He shared pride in his own wife Angela Bassett, showing he feels strongly about women who push it forward.

Every day we get to watch. History unfold like hopscotch. More often than not it’s in looking back. But that’s not how DuVernay leads the pack. Line-up $100 million Disney flick. More than just being a hot chick. Shaking things up on Hollywood drive. Courtney B. Vance watching her come alive.

Quoted this summer in USA Today pages. About rolling through movie stages. The fact that a film can do well. With community around to help it swell. Conversation that keeps buzz grooving. With national moment forward moving. Knows others came before breaking glass. And doing enough kicking of.. (right!)

A breakout year in full view. For her and film making crew. Brainchild of OWN’s Queen Sugar hit. Made it thus far with “do not settle” or quit. In career or with your honey boo. Not being desperate but being true. Determined to see awareness sparking. Reach new heights and forget the skylarking.

DuVernay with new day story-telling. Topics that are tough and compelling. Her notoriety rising like the sun. In between eat, pray and have fun. Sure to remind folks not to second-guess. Just think about the big ‘S’ on your chest. Not to sellout either on the mission. Stick to script for profit, purpose and vision.

Who knows if DuVernay & Vance have met. There’s still some time yet. He took Emmy for People v. O.J. Simpson role. Playing Johnnie Cochran in heart and soul. Vance sees shift in TV programming. Should transfer to movie distributing. With pride for Angela Bassett his wife. Women who push it forward in life.

There it is…the return of the Macks! While some kids get set for new math, other folks can watch Michael Strahan & Steve Harvey. Over the summer there was a break from doing their shows. But Harvey kicked-off a new season with Simone Manuel on her Olympics race and Strahan joined GMA on the regular.

In ABC interview he said “I think we all get so tied up in what’s going on in work and all these other things that we forget that life is supposed to be fun. I try to bring that same attitude, as much fun and play you can bring to a job.” That’s what it means for them to connect with passion full-time and dreams full-speed.

It’s easy to lose count of how many gigs they got. Strahan does NFL Sunday on FOX. Then he’ll shuttle back to NY for his weekly GMA co-hosting duties. No wonder his book is entitled Wake Up Happy. You can’t run like this without loving what you do. These guys are sure to mix fun with getting back in the flow.

Harvey is no slouch either. When he’s not on syndicated radio, he’s cutting-up on his TV talk show. Then there’s Family Feud and Little Big Shots for extra measure. In between tapings he tries to share with his audiences a few nuggets from what’s on his mind. He too is raking in the dollars and sharing good sense.

They inspire us to keep it movin’. In a Huff Post Op-ed Harvey wrote “If you keep your faith… there is an appointed time for you and it’ll bust open for you. This journey we’re on isn’t about who gets there first, it’s about who hangs in there until the end.” As celebrity Hot Steppers they want to see folks living good!

There it is, enough jumpin’ jacks. Time for return of the Macks! Kids get set for new math class. Michael Strahan & Steve Harvey take a pass. Summer’s over from being on break. After visit to the ocean or the lake. Harvey kicked-off new season on Olympics race. Strahan joined GMA as a regular in the place.

In ABC interview he once said. Not to let work and stuff drive us dead. Tied-up in the goings on at the job daily. Forgetting life’s supposed to be fun really. That same attitude taken from the playground. As seen on TV with fun all around. What it means to have full-time passion. And full-speed dreams in rotation.

Easy to lose count of the gigs they got. And the many ways they stay market hot. Strahan on FOX NFL Sunday show. Covering tackles and hits blow by blow. Then back to NY’s GMA set. Getting there fast on red-eye jet. Wake Up Happy his personal book thing. For how he brings fun and flow to the work ring.

Harvey’s got some get-up too. No slouch like animals tend to do. When not radio then it’s TV talk. There’s Family Feud and the Little Big Shots walk. In between he tries to share a nugget. To audience members’ goals on their bucket. Raking in the dollars, sharing good sense. For extra measure boosting confidence.

They inspire folks to keep it movin’. If nothing else just keep on groovin’. Reminding us to keep the faith and jump. At the appoint time to get over the hump. Journey not so much about who gets there first. But for those who hang in there past the thirst. As celeb Hot Steppers wanting to live good, not worst.

The stage was set for a parade of graduates. One by one they’d step forward to receive their diplomas. But first they had to sit through a series of speeches. The headline speaker was some well-known public figure. Cory Booker, Yes! Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, For sure! They spoke, folks listened and then walked!

Booker said, “Stay faithful because you have come this far by faith—faith in each other, faith in yourselves, faith in our country…you may not be called to change the whole world, but to one person, you could make a world of difference.” That’s a real important leadership value for getting what you put in.

Before receiving his honorary degree Abdul-Jabbar poked fun at how social media has taken over in pop culture. He used his own journey to sell the idea of connecting to new opportunities. Whether it’s in a job, career or vocation, the next level ought to be less about default setting and more about an inner calling.

Twenty years ago social media didn’t exist. Today there’s plenty to go around. For some people it’s hard to imagine life without ‘likes.’ Booker is no millennial but as a social media pro he uses social savvy to keep his work in the culture flow. But he knows that ignorant enthusiasm doesn’t produce social impact.

After their commencement moments Booker and Abdul-Jabbar were back at work. The business of the Senate has him focused on justice reforms. While for Abdul-Jabbar, he’s writing a comic book. They bring an approach to work that’s on the opposite ends of the spectrum, but in many ways it’s worth fighting for.

Stage set for the college grads. Robes covered up their tats and fads. One by one taking the stage. As they turn life’s next page. With diplomas received in hand. Speeches tell them to take a stand. Well-known public figures give headline talk. Booker, Abdul-Jabbar and others spoke, listened then they walk.

Booker said to stay faithful sister and brother. Come this far by faith in each other. Faith in self and country too. To change the world or point of view. Make a difference one person at a time. Turn lemons into lemonade and lemonade into wine. A leadership value for the strong. Get what you put in after long.

Abdul-Jabbar gets honorary degree. Not paid for but for free. Poked fun at social media’s cultural pop. How things have gone over the top. Used his story to pitch another way. Where opportunities come with more pay. Whether job, career or higher vocation. An inner calling that feels like recreation.

Twenty years ago social media wasn’t around. Maybe only in the underground. Hard to imagine no ‘likes’ in their stable. Even for millennials who’ve ditched their cable. Booker’s no young-un but a social media pro. Which tends to keep his work in the flow. With less ignorant enthusiasm to showcase a way to grow.

After commencement back at doing what they do. Working, creating, bringing change through. Business of the Senate his special place. Focused on justice reforms keeping pace. Approach to work on opposite ends. Worth fighting for is the message each sends. With plenty time left for family and friends.

It was an emotional press conference as Peyton Manning announced his retirement. After playing 18 seasons in the NFL he goes out on top having won Superbowl 50. He leaves the big stage for the next rising star. Not just in football, as Steve Harvey & Ellen team-up for the next generation of little big shots.

They feature kids in athletics, acrobatics and other antics. Ellen tells Georgia’s Albany Herald “It’s, for sure, not a competition show. Some of them are just talented kids, and whatever they end up doing, that’s great.” This is a big step to a Hollywood dream deal, not leaving home or hometown out of it for real.

As Executive Producers they’re calling the shots. The concept is somewhat of a segment spin-off from Ellen’s TV show. It’s similar to other talent shows and how industry leaders approach their career dreams. Great achievers start with an idea that gets flushed-out in the garage, basement or hometown backyard.

Harvey & Ellen are excited about what the ‘little big shots’ do. Their amazing stuff reminds us that dreams going from concept to reality are like ideas going from fish bowl to the ocean. Plus a special gifting can add more bounce to the ounce while engaging everything you’ve got to make a major splash.

“I don’t want to do anything just because I can,” she later said. “I think kids will love this show, and adults will love the show, too … because who doesn’t want to see an adorable kid with a talent?” This might be about showbiz value but also about giving a break or lighting a fire under flickering ideas and passions.

Emotional presser for Peyton Manning. Tears he couldn’t help fanning. Leaves the game he just loves. Flying away like peace doves. After 18 seasons at the helm. Took game to higher realm. Superbowl 50 his last stage. Other stars coming of age. As Harvey & Ellen team-up to make. Next gen ‘big shots’ take.

With kids who shine in athletics. Acrobatics and other antics. Saying it’s not competition show. But for talent to rain and snow. Whatever kids do it’s gonna be great. Another fat check on Harvey’s plate. Taking big step in Hollywood dream deal. Not leaving home or hometown out of it for real.

As EP they call the shots. New ways to sell TV spots. A spin-off from her daytime show. In its own lane and flow. Like ‘Got Talent’ and kids saying darndest things. Industry leading career dreams he rocks she brings. Designed in garage or home-alone in basement. Starting in the backyard or on street pavement.

Gung-ho about what ‘little big shots’ do. Amazing stuff prove what’s old can be new. Going from concept to reality-TV in motion. Ideas from fish bowl to the ocean. With special gifting comes more bounce. And leftover ideas by the ounce. Such memorable abilities in a flash. While making a big-time LOL splash.

Not doing it just because she can. Focused on becoming greater than. Maybe kids will tune-in from age two. Thinking adults will watch it too. Who doesn’t want to see talent rise? Or checkout younguns try evr’thing for a prize? Some showbiz value a must. Giving a break or firing-up passions is the thrust.
