Angela Bassett & Forest Whitaker Show Off Their Singing Skills in ‘Black Nativity’

Published

Angela Bassett & Forest Whitaker are proving they are more than just award winning actors. They can also sing … and they are showing off their skills in the new Kasi Lemmons directed film Black Nativity.

HipHollywood sat down with the two during the films junket and found out how they liked singing alongside the likes of Mary J. Bige, Jennifer Hudson and Tyrese.

“There were a little nerves at first,” admitted Bassett. “But then we just had to go back to where we are confident and comfortable, and that’s acting … and realize that we are telling a story as opposed to just singing.”

But they did have a little help and coaching from Raphael Saadiq who produced the music for the film. “He would help us get there,” laughed Bassett.

In the film Bassett and Whitaker play a pastor and first lady who learn the true meaning of faith and family when their estranged grandson (played by Jacob Lattimore) spends Christmas with them.

Check out the rest of our interview with the cast below.

Black Nativity is in theaters Thanksgiving Day.

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
