Exclusive: Bishop McClendon Talks About His “Entourage” & Responds to Bishop T.D. Jakes

Bishop Clarence McClendon had folks talking, tweeting and hashtagging after his fallout with Deitrick Haddon on episode one of “Preachers of L.A.”

The two got into a heated debate over whether pastors should receive honorariums for speaking engagements, as well as if it’s acceptable for them to travel with an “entourage.”

HipHollywood sat down with Bishop McClendon who shared his thoughts on the subject.

“Jesus didn’t have a mega church, but he had 12 disciples” explained McClendon. “Some people would refer to that as entourage, but these were men who were trained to assist Jesus in his ministry assignment. So the people that I have travel with me have a function in my ministry assignment.”

Added McClendon, “The thing that I cleared up and wanted cleared up  was that the people I travel with, my ministry pays for those people, they are covered by Clarence McClendon Ministries.”

If you’re wondering, McClendon did not arrive to the HipHollywood offices with a 12 man entourage. He showed up a lot more low key than portrayed on the show, but told us he understands that sometime producers embellish things for ratings.

But, one person who will not be tuning in to see the new Oxygen series is Bishop TD Jakes, who slammed the show and called it “junk.” McClendon said he believes Jakes is entitled to his opinion.

“I have a great deal of respect for Bishop Jakes…he is entitled to his opinion, but but at the end of the day, it’s just that, one man’s opinion.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
