Here’s what has our coffee pots running over this morning:
  • The trailer is out for Jennifer Hudson’s latest movie, “Winnie”! It’s about Nelson Mandela’s ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. Apparently, few actually know the story of Winnie’s relentless fight to end apartheid in South Africa. Terrence Howard takes on the role of Mandela in the film. Doesn’t this look like an Oscar contender? Check out the trailer below… [Black Voices]
  • Rihanna’s fashion choices are getting her in hot water with parents. The starlet posed with kids outside her NYC hotel over the weekend wearing a necklace spelling the words “f**k you.” Though it’s no shocker RiRi likes bold accessories, but is she in the wrong here? [Black Voices]
  • Word on the street is that Mike Tyson is interested in opening a restaurant. He’s been in talks with Moshe Malamud about opening a high-end restaurant chain focusing on kosher food. Would you eat at a place owned by Mike Tyson? [NY Post]
  • After pulling the plug on his “Today” show performance, Kanye West will continue with his Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade performance hosted by NBC’s Matt Lauer. Thank goodness his beef with Lauer won’t affect the rest of the network. [NY Post]
  • LeBron James has been nominated for Time’s Person of the Year. “What those guys did, the courage and what they stood for, I should be nowhere near that list. Nowhere near it,” he said. [Huff Po]
  • Jay-Z is showing the love for his new artist, Jay Electronica. He hosted a party for Electronica this past Friday night at The Box. You can expect his new album to debut in 2011. Let’s hope Diddy isn’t still pissed over this. [NY Post]
  • Oddly, Marlon Wayans felt the need to assert his and his brothers’ sexuality on Twitter. “Sorry folks, I ain’t gay and neither are my bros. All straight hetero sexual women lovers w/beautiful kids & families. Look under a new rock.” Was that really necessary, Marlon? [Jezebel]
Check out Jill Scott’s live performance of “A Long Walk” at the 2010 ESSENCE Music Festival on our new Vevo channel.
