Tiffany Haddish Says Tyler Perry Adds a Secret Sauce to Light a Fire Under His Biz Dreams and Project Teams

doc-live-headshot

Remember when Tyler Perry appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon? He was promoting his then new movie Nobody’s Fool which featured Tiffany Haddish. He talked about how he gave Haddish a new Tesla as a gift for her emerging talent. He was offering encouragement on her dream journey.

Well, fast forward to recent events and you see how thing have played out. This time it’s Haddish explaining how the car was a material gift, but the best gift that Perry gives today is for us to dream bigger. That’s what he wanted guests at his recent studio grand opening to take away from the event.

Here are two showbiz players who’ll tell you they started out on what might seem like the wrong side of the tracks. Haddish went through a period of bouncing around foster homes and later living in her car. Perry went through a period of homelessness and disappointments before selling out his plays.

Now he’s 100% owner of the largest movie production studio in America, supposedly bigger than the three main Hollywood studios combined. Haddish is the newest host of the re-booted Kids Say the Darndest Things. Their stories remind us that it’s possible to turn lemons into lemonade.

Folks are still raving about the ‘glory to glory’ theme of the event. Some say it had a Met Gala feel. Others think it was like Emmys, Grammys and Oscars combined. Those events usually have guests leaving with a swag bag. But Perry’s guests might have left with a dream bag that had success tools like a:

  1. Compass

We know the many artistic sides of Perry. His work has traveled the world over. A compass is good for going in the right direction not just on the road but also the highway of life. It’s in going north, east, south and west in the direction of one’s purpose, calling, passion and dream guiding you to fulfill your destiny.

  1. Clock

They say it feels like time stops when passion is in play. You forget about time as in the clock edition and operate with time as in the divine edition. This way you’re not getting upset when things don’t work out on a rigid schedule. Perry’s seen both clock time and divine time at work that’s brought things to pass.

  1. Calculator

Haddish will tell you she wasn’t the best student in school. She writes in her book of how a certain teacher helped her with reading. With all the success coming her way now, she’s probably happy for a calculator to add-up the checks. It’s also a success tool to correctly calculate risks for the next-level rise.

  1. Clip

She probably remembers days as a child having to wear certain hair clips. They were a staple back in the day. Today she’s excited about the video clip that came with the Perry invite. That’s another kind of memorable clip along with many others from the event that guests will cherish for years to come.

Perry says he remembers being invited by Oprah to one of her Legends Balls and thinking to himself, “why am I here?” Well it’s that personal reflection clip that inspired the past decade or more of his life. He’s grateful, mindful and fruitful. Maybe it’s a glimpse of life with unstoppable blessing on blessings.

Tip: A swag bag might come with treats for style & beauty. But a dream bag comes with success tools like a compass, clock, calculator and clip to fulfill your destiny.

Talkback: How crazy is it for Perry to now own what was once a Confederate military base?

Jennifer Hudson & Yara Shahidi, Doing a New Thing and New Show With Fresh Brand Appeal for Real

doc_lg

Did you catch that photobomb moment with fans of the Voice? A few friends were hanging out and taking pictures in the spinning chairs used by the judges. Then out of nowhere Jimmy Fallon and Miley Cyrus worked their way into the picture. It was one of those ‘star struck’ moments those fans weren’t expecting.

This season the newest Voice judge is Jennifer Hudson. During blind auditions she’s busy building-up her team. Meanwhile Black-ish star Yara Shahidi is building on her dream. Hudson is doing a new thing and Shahidi is doing a new show called Grown-ish. These gigs are giving them fresh brand appeal for real.

They’re also finding ways to up-tick their passion and up-level their game. Hudson is flexing her singing chops as she looks to mentor a new crop of emerging talent. Shahidi is off to college as a Harvard freshman. She wants to keep the acting thing going as she continues towards higher learning.

It didn’t take Hudson long to learn the rules of the road and it won’t take Shahidi long either in her new role. For Hudson it’s in how she’s been able to unlock the flow and handle the nitty gritty of the show. In business and the work world that also means being able to make things stick, click or do the trick.

Most of us have had to open a new tube of glue by removing the seal and unlocking the cap. Then you’ve got to press to get the glue flowing. Depending on what’s being glued you’ll also have to press the sides together. Whether it’s with doing finger nails or working career trails we’ve gotta press and then press on.

In one sense Hudson’s story is one of having to press on to the mark of a higher calling. Even though she was cut before the finale during her time on American Idol she’s gone on to win Grammys and Tonys. She went through a painful period of losing her mother to violence and has gained a greater anointing.

For Shahidi as a Black Girls Rock recipient, her college and career moves are more like pressing on to gain a higher standing. She’s ready to spread her wings and do even bigger things. She’ll have lots of material to work with as she begins doing the Grown-ish TV shoot and building on her career routes.

Their road to a higher anointing or professional top-ranking reminds me of my own journey. There’ve been setbacks and disappointments. I sometimes liken my journey to the ‘Joseph’ story. As with Joseph I’ve learned to press on thru whatever comes my way and discover what my life’s purpose has to say.

As Hudson brings her passion she’s gonna add more soul in how she rolls. We’ve seen it on Idol, Broadway and the pop concert stage. With Shahidi’s next move to raise her game it will bring new life experiences. She’s already shown her maturity and command for social issues to be well beyond her age.

When passion and purpose come together or set it off, it makes things click. Oftentimes it happens on the dream side the way you open a safe. Life turns things one way, then another way until you find the right way for your efforts to do the trick. That’s what makes the rewards glorious so you just ‘gots make it!’

Tip: We get career awards and personal rewards in how we unlock the talent & passion flow to make things stick, click or do the trick.

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

There’s ruffled feathers and choppy waters in Cavaliers land. When news broke that Kyrie Irving wanted out, some gasped like was heard in Congress. Not clear if the story will be fully told before he leaves. But on the ‘Girls Trip’ score, Tiffany Haddish and Regina Hall know about being a ‘trip without the baggage.’

They’re flying high with a box office hit. Haddish landed the role in breakout fashion. They really wanted a household name actor. According to Vibe she sent word back to the producers saying “Tell them I’ve had a name since 1979. I was born with a name. You tell them I need to come in.” It was like her ‘one shot.’

Her rise to fame is a case of how people take stock of their story to achieve new glory. After some rough years as a teenager trying to play mother to younger siblings, she realized that making people laugh was important to her. She crossed paths with Kevin Hart who set her mental wheels turning on setting goals.

She talks about the upward climb in her new TV special on going from Hood to Hollywood. With the sassy mantra of She’s Ready as her tailwind, Haddish explains how developing self-love and self-acceptance moved her closer to showbiz relevance. It’s one of those ‘Yea I made it but not on my own’ stories.

Haddish has had to get past low moments to have these high moments. Hall, who’s put in her time as well, also helps others move past things that can derail your sail. No matter what, letting go of the baggage means not being bitter, but better or not being ‘so street’ where people can’t see the ‘so sweet.’

Ruffled feathers, choppy waters in the ‘Land. Yo, fire-up the sports scoop band. News broke Irving wants out. Stuff to make ‘Bron scream or shout. Like gasp heard from Congress mouth. More to be said. From what’s in teammate’s  head. Haddish & Hall on ‘Girls Trip’ score. Trip without the baggage.. there’s more.

Flying high with box office hit. Haddish landed role that’s lit. Really for actor with household name. And maybe more skin in the game. Sent word back to the audition shop. That she could make it pop. Her name’s been around for a minute. So she wanted to win it. Kinda that one shot. Make it big, hit the spot.

Rise to fame by taking stock. Of what her skills got on lock. In how to use her story. For achieving new glory. Some rough teenage years. To be mommy and sista for her peers. Making people laugh her secret thing. Not trying to dance or sing. Kevin Hart game her a reason. To set goals and expect her season.

Talks about the upward climb. Trying to make nickels and a dime. New TV special ‘bout her days in the hood. And not giving up to make good. Sassy mantra of ‘She’s Ready’ her tailwind breeze. Now doing it big and with ease. Where self-love and more acceptance. Moved things closer to showbiz relevance.

Haddish going from lows to highs. From rock-bottom to blue skies. Hall putting in grind time too. Seeing their dreams come thru. Advice on things that can derail. Or put holes in your sail. No matter what came their way. Hard to carry baggage and play. Not bitter but better. Where ‘so street’ seen as ‘so sweet.’

What’s better, to be the star of the game or the star of the show? What if it’s a game and a show? That’s what fans might debate when watching their favorite TV game show or ball player. It’s what we see with the MLB All-Star Game and Judge Judy on deck. Judge & Judy bring more face time to their game time.

Judy just launched a new TV game show. According to the Queens Courier she said “So thrilled to embark on a new adventure with such fabulous partners; iWitness is a compelling game for those from 5 through 95.” Judge & Judy show-off their power to WOW as something coming from their sweet spot.

The premise of the show is based on the magic of memory and observation from watching a video clip. The goal is to match as best as possible what really stands-out in the video moment. The idea probably comes from Judy’s years of experience in hearing people give eye witness accounts from an event.

Meantime, there’s no confusing what happened at the MLB Homerun Derby with Judge taking the prize. His performance was so telling and compelling that the Baseball Commissioner said he could become the face of the game. As any sports writer might say, the dude is young, gifted and stacked (and that’s a fact).

Yea, everything is everything and when asked about the game or show folks were happy. But it seems the WOW factor is a kind of addictive quality their presence/essence has to offer. She’s been on the TV show for 20+ years and maybe he’s ready to take a long walk or let homeruns fly like cranes in the sky.

Which is better, be star of the game? Or star of show the same? Whether in a game or show. It’s about hustle and flow. What fans might debate at the bar. Or watching ballers from afar. As seen at MLB All-Star fair. With homeruns flying in the air. More face time to the scene. More game time for the green.

Judge Judy launching game show. Aaron Judge about to rake in the dough. Judy so thrilled to take. New adventure for winner’s sake. With such fabulous biz sponsors. And TV industry watchers. Seen as compelling game at best. For those 9 to 95 at the fest. Power to stir the pot. And WOW the sweet spot.

Premise of the show is this. A way for memory hit or miss. From observation of video clip. To giving  a scoop or incident tip. Goal is to match what you see. To what stands-out not so much A to Z. An idea from evidence gathering trenches. As seen by Judy from the courtroom benches.

No confusing the homerun watch. Judge hit them beyond the catch. Taking top prize among the sluggers. Female fans among his list of huggers. A performance in range so telling. Soon to be a pitchman for things he’s selling. MLB Commish says he’s new face. Even before this year’s pennant race.

Yea, everything is everything. Don’t wait to see if fat lady sings. When asked about the game or show. Folks shared their happiness, you know. But seems WOW factor in their presence. Is addictive quality of their essence. For 20+ years she on TV screen. He ready for long walk or homerun’s gangsta lean.

Tip: The power to WOW is something winner’s deliver between their sweet spot and high point.

Who’s ready to take a wild ride on the loves train? Well, that’s not quite how things went at Wrestlemania. But there was love in the air as John Cena proposed to his girl. There was more happening in Orlando as Jimmy Fallon visited his Universal Attraction. Fallon & Cena made a fantasy ride in Orlando seem surreal.

The new ‘Ride Through New York’ at Universal is getting major reviews. Fallon told the NY Press that “It’s an idea I had seven years ago. I pitched it to the Universal Theme Park folks and they politely passed.” Now the ride is here, proving how a dollar, a dream and a destiny need good timing to come together.

After getting a ‘no’ from park execs on his proposal he went on doing other things. As the Tonight Show became his main thing, Fallon says he got a call back saying they were ready to rethink the idea. Three years have passed since and now Fallon has a show and his own ride as a ‘life-imitates-art attraction.’

While that happened in one part of Orlando, Cena had another kind of proposal for his long-time girlfriend after winning their Wrestlemania match. Thankfully he got a ‘yes’ on his first try. It felt like destiny as his mother was there to see him perform and propose. His good friend Fallon was also in the audience.

They know in pursuing a personal relationship or a professional dream that when you dig deeper and think outside of the box good things can happen. Maybe Fallon’s idea at the time seemed premature or presumptuous. But the ‘gods’ had it come together after a while with the right biz players and life partner.

Ready to take ride on loves train? Well let’s just make it plain. Saying how it went down. At Wrestlemania meltdown. With fresh love in the air. John Cena gives girlfriend a stare. Proposing on Orlando stage. Hit social media page. Fallon did a little thing too. Opening new attraction so folks come on thru.

Like a ride through NYC. As a Universal magical spree. Getting major buzz and reviews. Fly, but no need to take off shoes. Idea he had seven years ago. Now it’s real and a go. Pitched to those who call the shots. The answer was no space on the lots. Now peeps set for priming. Dollar, dream & destiny’s timing.

Moving from a ‘no’ by park execs. His passion muscles he would flex. Doing other things meantime. As Tonight Show became his dime. Says he got a call back. So his vision he would unpack. As the idea got reset for another round. Look at what they done found. For a ‘life-imitates-art’ fun-filled compound.

That happened in one part of town. As Cena was throwing down. Making another proposal thing. By putting on the ring. After winning event match. He had a full house to watch. With ‘yes’ right there on her mind. He knew she was the best find. Felt like destiny couldn’t hide. Mother & friends there on the side.

Whether love interest or pure dream. Gotta dig deeper for the winning team. Thinking outside of the box too. Then good things happen for you. Maybe Fallon idea seemed premature. But now more than money-making dujour.  The ‘gods’ had it come together. The right players, partner and life’s pleasure.

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.

It was another weekend of NFL playoffs and Dallas got the boot. Many hoped this was their Superbowl year. Meantime, the women’s club was in full effect at the movie box office with Hidden Figures and Rogue One. Octavia Spencer & Felicity Jones are leading the way and lifting doubts in Hollywood.

In describing Rogue One to reporters, Jones said These characters are all vulnerable. They’ve all had difficult times in their lives and they’re all finding strength in each other. It feels very appropriate for the times that we’re in.” Jones & Spencer show how real people pour out their hearts on making dreams fly.

The theme in a movie’s ‘leading lady’ role is well worn. Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monae play strong characters that experienced some scorn. The power in their roles isn’t merely in the beautiful sexiness they bring, but in that vulnerability thing. Plus, they add some extra mustard to their mojo.

Jones who plays a breakout part in Rogue One confirms that the Star Wars franchise is as appealing to women as men. So whether a movie, job task or community project if it has visionary legs it will go places. There’s the kind of ‘it-factor’ that’s useful for turning up big crowds or making people reach for big things.

After a Hidden Figures White House screening, First Lady Michelle Obama said “They didn’t listen to those doubters. They did not listen to the haters — because they’re always out there.” The strongest voice we should be tuned to is where God speaks to and through us in a way that lines up the blessings.

Another weekend of playoffs set. Some folks are making bets. Last week Dallas got the boot. See who’s left after the burning soot. Meantime, women’s club staying hot. Rogue One then Hidden Figures in top spot. Octavia Spencer & Felicity Jones making good. Leading the way, lifting doubts in Hollywood.

Saying to reporters about the flick. That’s it’s not just about a hot chick. Characters vulnerable through difficult times. Finding strength in their primes. Speaks to where some are today. As they wake-up and take time to pray. A case of maybe when doves cry. As people pour out their hearts and make dreams fly.

‘Leading lady’ theme roles well worn. Spencer, Henson and Monae not phased by scorn. Playing characters that makes your proud. And even shout out loud. Power not only in sexiness they bring. But in that vulnerability thing. To add extra mustard to their mojo. Just like any dude or regular Joe.

Jones plays her own breakout part. As Rogue One heroine that’s smart. Confirms Star Wars guys & gals appeal. As a perennial box office steal. Whether work, play and fun with visionary legs. Will go places like water and the dregs. The kinda ‘it-factor’ for turning up big. In growing crowd numbers and dream gig.

White House screening had Michelle Obama preaching. About making moves that are far-reaching. Not listening to doubters and haters. They’ll be part of the see ya laters. Always there for holding folks back. Pointing out what people lack. Voice most important to hear. Is God who lines-up blessings beyond fear.
