Janet Jackson Joins The Billionaire Club

Published

on

Janet Jackson is back in the studio working on new material, but HipHollywood has learned that the pop icon certainly isn’t doing it for the money. According to a new report by Variety, Janet is a bonafide billionaire … or at least has made a billion dollars in her lifetime.

The singer/actress has earned $458 million from touring, $304 million from acting, $260 million from album sales and pocketed more than $81 million in sponsorship deals. Couple this with the fact that Jackson recently married a billionaire and you can see just how wealthy she is.

The news helps silence reports that Jackson is broke. Back in 2012, several gossip outlets speculated that the singer couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage on a Las Vegas condo her mother was staying. At the time, Jackson’s camp immediately blasted the rumor as false … and with a bank account like hers, we believe it.

    I loves me some Janet. She is a professional and energetic business woman who has been in the entertainment for over 3 decades, and has paved the way for other female artist that have come after her. She is an activist and a trailblazer. She is respected and has earned her just due in the industry. I admire her strength and tenacity for staying true to herself and her beliefs and conquering the world of pop music as well as movies and other projects. She is modest and a very beautiful person with a big heart. Where other female artist of today have failed to give back to the community or given back to causes, she has and has stayed faithful to HIV/AIDS activist for decades and knows that her fan base as well as her dancers are or have died from HIV/AIDS or has been affected by it, she has taken it upon herself to be a guiding force in making sure that their lives was not in vain. Good luck to Mrs. Al Mana in her nuptials and in her upcoming projects and endeavors….May God continue to bless you and keep you wrapped in his arms, you and your family.

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.
