Angelina Jolie recently revealed that she underwent a preventative double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer. The news shocked not only her fans, but Hollywood as well.

While on the red carpet for Niecy Nash’s, It’s Hard To Fight Naked, book signing party, HipHollywood caught up with some of Hollywood’s leading women to get their reaction on Angelina’s announcement. “Angelina Jolie is a phenomenal woman, and I think her family comes first, and any decision after that or any decision that she makes because that’s the first thing that she thinks about, she has my support” Brandy shared.

“You know that she probably made the best choice for herself as a woman, and what a hard choice it must have been … it’s a preventative measure but I think about that and think wow, she did what I try and ask every woman to do, put your own mask on first, save yourself, so that you’re able to save everybody else … she’s a beautiful warrior,” Sheryl Lee Ralph explained.

As for New Jack City’s Vanessa Williams, she admitted she would have taken another approach. “It’s shocking. Its a very allopathic kind of approach to healing and I’m more holistic and more homeopathy … I wish her the best,” Williams shared.

    Some encouraging remarks except for the very stupid, Vanessa Williams who used the universal moron term holistic when discussing medicine. And genuinely advocated that fake treatment, homeopathy for cancer. Such dangerous advice not only makes her an idiot, it makes her a potentially dangerous idiot.

    That had to be a hard decision to make.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
