‘Black-ish’ Star Jenifer Lewis Has No Problem Playing Hollywood’s Mother (Exclusive)
Since making her Broadway debut in Eubie! in 1979, Jenifer Lewis has become a fixture onscreen with roles on A Different World, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Girlfriends and Meet the Browns, as well as starring in films like Jackie’s Back and The Cookout. She’s perhaps best known for playing a string of iconic mothers; her onscreen offspring includes Taraji P. Henson (Not Easily Broken), Angela Bassett (What’s Love Got to Do With It), Whitney Houston (The Preacher’s Wife) and Tupac Shakur (Poetic Justice).

“I was everybody’s mama because I was a born leader,” Lewis boasts to Et. She has no qualms about the mothers she’s played, or even about taking on the roles that some of her colleagues in Hollywood may have viewed as stereotypes.

“Obviously, I’ll do anything,” she says with a laugh. “I don’t care what it is; for that kind of money, I’ll play the

Pink Slams Christina Aguilera Rift Rumors, Calls the 2017 AMAs a ‘Celebration of Women’
Enough is enough. Pink is tired of the fake beef people are trying to create between her and Christina Aguilera. It all started on Sunday night when the “Beautiful Trauma” singer was spotted in the audience at the 2017 American Music Awards.

During Aguilera’s tribute to Whitney Houston, Pink appeared to have a slightly pained look. Viewers quickly jumped on the moment, but failed to notice future cut backs to Pink in which she was smiling, in tears, and clapping enthusiastically.

After praising Xtina’s performance on Twitter the night of the show, Pink even further clarified her thoughts on Monday in a series of supportive tweets.

“Last night was about honoring first responders, singing with one of the greatest voices I have ever heard @kelly_clarkson, and pushing myself to do something I was afraid of and everyone thought was impossible. I scaled a building. While singing live,” the acrobatic singer said.

Christina Aguilera took the stage at last night’s 2017 American Music Awards to pay tribute to Whitney Houston. She wowed the crowd with her powerful rendition of “Run to You” from the Bodyguard soundtrack — and her uncharacteristically spare makeup.

Many fans were surprised to see the 36-year-old mom of two, who usually sports a full face of bold cosmetics, going au naturale. One tweeted: “Christina Aguilera is so beautiful and even more beautiful without all the makeup.” Others coasted over her minimally glammed up face, instead zeroing in on what they perceived to be a dramatically different set of lips.
