Nick Cannon Is Bleu Magazine's "Man Of The Year" (thumbnail)


While it seems that everyone was in support of the movie, 12 Years A Slave, there are few celebrities that aren’t. Nick Cannon took to his Twitter about his feeling about “slave movies”.

Cannon suggest that we need to start seeing movie about Kings & Queens. I totally agree with Nick Cannon about King & Queen movies, BUT, our history has to be told.

Nick wasn’t the only one speaking out against ’12 Years’. Actress, Elise Neal, spoke with Erica Vain about how she wasn’t a fan of the movie.

“Everybody is talking about how great “12 Years of Slave” was. No, it wasn’t great. I’m sorry. I was very disappointed…. I’ve seen the best best budgets being spent on Malcolm Lee, you know when the first “Best Man” was released. I think it’s sad that a great film maker and a friend of mine, like Spike Lee has to even think about doing a kick starter to get a movie made in the right way with owning his own films. He is a legend in our game and he still deserves respect, you know what I mean? I just don’t understand that, I don’t. I don’t like it. And again I’ll say, I miss the time when Will, and anyone of African American descent could do a movie about us and not have to try to down play the role or just go to the story of slavery or whatever. I don’t like it.”

Do you agree with Nick Cannon and Elise Neal?
