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.

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
