How Adrienne Bailon Led Ja Rule To God

Published

on

Just months after being released from prison, Ja Rule makes his way to the big screen in a film based on a true story called, I’m In Love With A Church Girl.

In the film, shot before Ja’s two years sentence for gun possession and failure to pay taxes, Ja plays a drug trafficker in the Bay Area turned pastor. During a sit down interview with the rapper to talk about the film, the 37-year-old revealed to HipHollywood that his role as Miles Montego is similar to his own life.

“It’s a story about second chances and redemption, and I know a little bit about that, so I was really intrigued to play this character,” he shared.

Speaking of second chances, the rapper who was released in May told HipHollywood that being locked up was just the beginning of a new life. “Strong body strong mind. I went in there and I wanted to work out and get my body right. Also I read a lot of books to get my mind right. I took my GED while in there, got that,” he dished.

The “The Always On Time” rapper’s co-star in the faith based film, Adrienne Bailon, who plays Vanessa, the “church girl” can also directly relate to her character.

“I grew up Pentecostal in the lower east side, so I remember attending more than one service … my mom ran vacation bible school … I spent eight days a week in church,” the New York native revealed.

“I absolutely loved it. It’s the foundation for everything in my life. It’s been the foundation for my career, my personal life, and I love being a church girl,” Adrienne laughed.

I’m In Love With A Church Girl premiers this Friday, October 18.

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.
