Amandla Stenberg, the girl who played Rue in The Hunger Games film, says she’s bisexual. Amandla came out on Vogue’s Snapchat this week.

“It’s a really really hard thing to be silenced and it’s deeply bruising to fight against your identity and to mold yourself into shapes that you just shouldn’t be in,” she shares in the clip. “As someone who identifies as a Black, bisexual woman, I’ve been through it and it hurts, and it’s awkward and it’s uncomfortable … but then I realized because of Solange [Knowles] and Ava DuVernay and Willow [Smith] and all the Black girls watching this right now, that there’s absolutely nothing to change.”

“We cannot be suppressed,” she continued. “We are meant to express our joy and our love and our tears and be big and bold and definitely not easy to swallow … Here I am being myself and it’s definitely hard and vulnerable and it’s definitely a process but I’m learning and I’m growing.”

You can watch Amandla’s coming out announcement below. She also posted an image of herself on Instagram with this bold caption: “On my way to steal your girl.” Well, OK then.

Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
