Two weeks after George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, celebrities continue to react to the verdict and the case that has fueled controversy nation wide.
While at Roland Martin’s annual Hollywood soiree Wednesday night, HipHollywood caught up with Faith Evans who expressed her own personal feelings and thoughts. “I certainly didn’t expect that to be the verdict,” Faith shared.
“I wasn’t in the jury, I don’t know what they were really presented with … I’ve been in that situation where I’ve been in court, and the public doesn’t really know everything that went on in the court. That’s kind of a sticky one to talk about when you weren’t in there, because I’ve been there,” Evans explained.
Faith, who was married to Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G” Wallace before his death in 1997, compared her own personal experience of losing a loved one and wanting justice served.
“It’s a tragic situation. Unlike my situation with us still trying to find the person who killed our loved one … they know who did it. And even though he’s not brought to justice, that’s a different felling than not really knowing, or not having that person right there on the stand,” the R&B Divas creator shared.
“I hope that they do find the justice that they’re looking for,” Evans added.
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.”
