Bresha Webb isn’t afraid to shoot her shot when she see’s a window of opportunity … especially when that window is Drake. On Sunday at the Netflix Golden Globes Party, the Marlon actress was feeling good and decided to ask the Canadian crooner for a dance. Unfortunately he wasn’t feeling it.
Detroit actor Algee Smith’s caught all the action on his InstaStory. Drake appears to turn her down nicely though, and Webb of course takes it all in stride … so much so, after the video made it on The ShadeRoom, she posted a series of hilarious videos on her InstaStory explaining exactly what went down.
“Listen, I’m on The Shade Room for asking Drake for a one dance. All I wanted was one dance. It was my favorite song,” she explained on the video. “I could be on The Shade Room For a lot of things. I wasn’t asking for his number. I wasn’t asking to smash. I was in a happy place. I was at the Golden Globes.”
Not phased by Drake’s curve, Bresha concluded, “Judge me if you want, I’m still going to ask whoever the hell I want to dance. I don’t think there’s anything wrong for asking someone for a one dance, especially when they have a song called one dance.”
She also joked that her life is a walking sitcom, and told Smith she expects some flowers for putting her on blast. We agree … and for the record Bresha we ain’t mad at you. We would have done the same thing.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
