Jazmine Sullivan is back and better than ever! The powerhouse performer is prepping a new album and promoting her new music, but now that she’s back in the spotlight she’s also back in front of the haters. Recently folks have been comment on her weight, but Jazmine is quick to say, she is finally in a place where she loves herself and that’s all that matters. When she sat down with HipHollywood she opened up about how she doesn’t care about fitting into certain boxes. “I’m loving myself more, I’m appreciating myself more for who I am. You know, I’m not stressing so much about trying to be a certain thing.”

Jazmine also posted a message on Instagram declaring, “IM BIG”, but made sure to point out that her focus is music not weight.

Real quick y’all… IM BIG!!!! #nowcarryon #sheesh lol seriously tho, first and foremost I’m an artist. So my main focus from now until the day I die will be my art. Secondly I’m a regular woman. My weight fluctuates depending on what I decide to put down my throat that week. If anything I’d hope that whatever u see in me serves as a reflection and inspires u to love or change certain things abt YOUR life. That’s all I want to be for u. That’s all I have to offer. Please don’t idolize or put me on a pedestal cuz I’ll be the first to admit I can’t live up to anyone’s expectations. I’m figuring this shit out day by day like the rest of y’all. If me being or looking big makes you uncomfortable… Well I feel sorry for u. And if u must say something screenshot the pic and talk shit to ur friends thru text like the rest of us do! ALLS I’m saying is I love u regardless and want u to spend ur day being happy and growing as an individual. With all my [heart]

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.
