Of course you know that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt FINALLY had their baby. The little Jolie-Pitt girl was born on Sunday in Namibia. Say what you will about their whirlwind romance, her past life indiscretions and/or your undying loyalty to Jennifer Aniston, but this White Hollywood baby is bringing a lot of money ($450,000 at last count going to hospitals and schools) and attention to a Black African country in need. I've always said, if celebrities used their grotesque wealth to help the less fortunate, the world would be a much better place. So welcome baby Shiloh (which reportedly means messiah in Hebrew).
HOW DO YOU SAY HATE IN SPANISH?
This week's Time magazine reports that all this talk about legalizing illegal immigrants has been a boon for White supremacist recruitment efforts. After the Oklahoma City Bombing, membership tanked and the hate groups were lying low, but now, with these immigrants about to get a free ride to the American Dream, good old boys and girls are knocking on doors to figure out where they have to sign up to get their uniform hoods. (sigh...)
AND THIS JUST IN FROM BOLLYWOOD...
Mira Nair, the Indian director behind Monsoon Wedding and Salaam Bombay, is reportedly set to direct Chris Tucker in a remake of an Indian movie called "Munnabhai MBBS." Tucker's version will be titled, the slightly easier to pronounce, "Gangster MD," about a con artist who ends up in medical school. Nair directed Denzel Washington in the sensuously delicious Black/Indian romance Mississippi Masaala in 1991. While Tucker never strikes me as the romantic type, anything Nair touches is infused with sensuality so we'll have to see. Wait for it in 2007.
