CATCHING UP WITH AMERIIE: Short-Haired Ameriie & Her Husbandger Lenny Nicholson On A Dinner Date

 photo spl525728_001_zpsea684b1c.jpg

In case you haven’t noticed lately, singer Ameriie is still hot, cut her long locks into a short bob, and she’s been married for almost 2 years now.  Check out pics of the "One Thing" chick out on a dinner date this weekend in Beverly Hills with her husband/manager Lenny Nicholson inside…

She’s still embarking on a music career, we think, but she’s been much more vocal on her Twitter about politics and social awareness lately.  Most recently, she spilled her thoughts on people with mixed heritage, like herself, using hyphenates to describe themselves:

I don’t like term POC (Person of Color).The otherness is inherent in it. It’s like saying 1person is simply a Person &the other is a POC……meanwhile we don’t go around using term PWC (Person Without Color) bc what the heck is that anyway? Last I checked,everyone has coloring.

She explained:

Same reason I don’t like hyphenates esp ___-American. I am not African-American. I am American & I am Black and Korean.  No Americans should be hyphenates bc really being an American already means your past descendants aren’t originally from here…..so hyphenating Asian- African- Indian- Americans is redundant. I am just as American as any other so no thanks to the hyphenate.

CHANGE UP: Actor Jesse L. Martin REPLACES Lenny Kravitz In “Sexual Healing” Biopic

 photo JesseLMartinPunctureNewYorkPremieregF3mu3NQ17gl.jpg

Actor Jesse L. Martin is replacing Lenny Kravtiz in the lead role for the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing."  Find out more inside….

Previously, we told you about the controversial Marvin Gaye biopic "Sexual Healing" and how Marvin’s son, Marvin Gaye III was a little upset that his childhood friend Lenny Kravitz had agreed to the role.  Mainly because the film focuses on the turbulent times of Marvin’s life and III wasn’t feeling it.  Now, Deadline.com is reporting that there’s been a shakeup in casting and now Marvin III will have to direct his frustration towards actor Jesse L. Martin.  If he still has any.

Jesse, who formerly starred on "Law & Order", will replace Lenny in the Julien Temple-directed flick which will start filming in later this month in Europe.

The film, produced by Vassal Benton and Fred Bestall, will focus on the music legend’s time in Europe in the 1980s when he attempted a drug-free comeback with the help of British music promoter Freddy Cousaert (played by Brendan Gleason).

Outside of the film, Jesse recently starred in the NBC pilot "The Secret Lives Of Husbands And Wives" (so far….the show hasn’t been picked up).

 

NO LIKEY: Marvin Gaye’s Son Wants Lenny Kravitz To WALK AWAY From Biopic Role

Photobucket

Marvin Gaye III, the son of the late singer, wants Lenny Kravtiz to walk away from a planned biopic saying the producers and directors of the film are all wrong from the project. Get more info inside….

As with the Nina Simone biopic, the family of late singer Marvin Gaye is not on board with a planned biopic, but that hasn’t stopped producers from moving forward and hiring Lenny Kravtiz.  This would be a high profile acting role for Lenny, who attended an East Room reception at the White House before making an appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors last night.   But now, Marvin Gaye III is speaking out with hopes that his childhood friend & old schoolmate, Lenny, will honor the legacy of his father and withdraw from the flick. Marvin told TMZ, 

"The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful … [They're] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don’t even know the whole story." 

Apparently, the movie will focus on the 80′s–a time of heavy drug use and right before Marvin shot and killed himself.

Marvin hopes to speak to Lenny because he doesn’t understand why he would do this movie–seeing that he and Marvin Jr. are still friends. "I would hope [Lenny] doesn’t have any idea that we are against this film being done."

We’ll let you know if Lenny changes his mind.  Highly doubtful….
