Halle Berry: It's Hard to Get Roles as a Woman of Color

Halle Berry talks about Oscar and  black women difficulty in getting movie role.
Berry, who gave a memorably emotional speech accepting her award for Monster's Ball, spoke to The Guardian about the lack of opportunities for black women in Hollywood, and her thoughts on the Oscar.
"I’m disappointed," she told the publication of the lack of subsequent black Best Actress winners. "I’m inspired though, when I see how many people of color are doing such good work out there.

"The quality and value of our work isn’t determined by an award," Berry, 48, added. "I would like to see more of them recognized, absolutely, but we all need to find the win in the work, and doing our craft. The real win is when we’re not just selling stories of color, that people of color can be in everyday stories. Where we’re not saying: 'These are the movies for black people.'"

Empire’ Creator Says Luscious Lyon Character Is Partially Based On Jay

Oh really?

In an interview with Sway–who, ironically, appeared in last week’s episode–the show’s creator, Danny Strong, admitted that Lucious Lyon’s character is loosely based on Jay Z.

The Jay-Z story, which very much inspired Lucious Lyon, certain elements of Lucious Lyon, was that story. For me the story of people who have some sort of criminal past, or gangster past are not limited to black culture. Our goal is to tell a great story, and to do the best show we can. You can cross the line and just be totally inappropriate, but we’re not doing that.

I simply said, ‘I respectfully decline.'” She explained that she was busy working on her late-night talk show on BET and had additional responsibilities as “a wife and a mommy.” “I had a couple of days downtime and I wanted to spend that with my husband and my kids,” she said.

Mario Chats With Breakfast Club Power 105.1

Mario Chats With Breakfast Club Power 105.1

Power 105.1 takes a big lead over Hot 97 in January ratings

New York Daily News reports, One of New York’s hottest radio rivalries has taken a tilt.

WQHT (97.1 FM, Hot 97) and WWPR (105.1 FM, Power 105.1) have battled over the last decade for hip-hop fans and come out about even.

In the January Nielsen ratings, though, Power was averaging 3.9% of the audience to 2.8% for Hot. Power also had a big lead in the mornings and among the 25- to 54-year-olds advertisers want.

This follows Angie Martinez jumping from Hot to Power last year. Hot has since made several other changes, including bringing in Pio Ferro as program director and installing Nessa in Martinez’s old slot.

Hot still has Funkmaster Flex and a name that matters. But it would clearly like to make local hip-hop radio a closer race again.
