Holy shit, it’s almost Christmas. I can’t believe we’re closing out 2020 but here we are. Still healing and recovering from my fractured wrist but I’m just thankful to be alive. Today was long as hell, but productive. Started off with interviewing Romeo Lacoste & getting tatted. Bro… I cannot handle tattoo pain. That shit kills me. Next I stopped by a video shoot with Yung Pinch & Blackbear then drove to West LA to interview Angela Means & her new vegan soul restaurant inside Colony. Remember “Bye Felicia!” from Friday? Yup, that’s her. Legend.
Finally got to chill and go to the movies afterwards. Shout out to the best movie partner Corey for going to see Bombshell with me. I was so into this film!! It was playing at 10pm at AMC Burbank Town Center 6, which was a full theater. Our seats were actually the very front row but we lucked out on the handicapped seats a few feet back.

IMDB plot: A group of women decide to take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network.
Immediately off the rip, they tell you it’s based on a true story. I love that they did that in the beginning and not the end, total game-changer. It got 85% on Rotton Tomatoes which is hella high & plus the plot immediately drew me in. As a journalist, the world of media and news is totally bittersweet. But this shit was on another level. It’s basically a film putting on for the #MeToo movement, and how women are so easily harassed in the workplace.
Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie all killed their roles. They chose an incredibly beautiful cast & it really made the film what it was. I’m still so shook that all that went down but knowing it happened IRL almost makes you angry. Basically Roger is the head of Fox & fires a news anchor, who in turn sues him for sexual harrassment. Because of her, this sparked an Entire movement of women who spoke out on being mistreated by Roger.
It’s an hour 48 minutes long & REALLY intense. I fucking loved it. So interesting, entertaining, & showed you a different perspective of Corporate America. Highly recommended.
