Fresh off her high as this year's best supporting actress in a motion picture, Mo'Nique expertly avoided a few minefields laid by a reporter backstage.
When asked what she thought of the Rihanna/Chris Brown situation, Mo'Nique said she didn't have an opinion, and however Rihanna wanted to handle it, it was up to her.
The reporter followed up, asking Mo'Nique if she thinks Rihanna should've spoken out, and Mo'Nique's comedic instincts kicked in.
Her only response: "Quit trying to trip me up baby!"
@ Dave....Allow me to re-phrase....STOP HATING!!!
Dave...what the h*LL are you talking about? "Nasty Looking"?? Please expound...because anyone with a pair of eyes would see that she looked beautiful... dress and all... go get that cataract surgery that was recommended and stopy HATING!!!!
I'm not so sure it's racial bias. She had weighed in on the Chris Brown and Rihanna SEVERAL times in the past. Granted, this was a tacky question to ask when someone has just won a well-desereved Golden Globe (were they just TRYING to spoil her night?) but as for whether it's racially motivated? As outspoken as she has been about it, I'd imagine that it was done in hopes of getting a good soundbite rather than making a racial generalization.
Was it just me or did anyone notice how nasty looking Mo'nique was?
The racial bias is interesting....so Mo'nique is now an authority on black on black crime? I had no idea. I thought she wa there because she acted against type and put in a heck of a performance.
Re: deborah Moses-Sanks: Chris Brown made his choice it wouldn't matter if he was white, black or puple with plaid polka-dots. If he is "destroyed" that is his own fault. My question is why black women feel the need to protect an abuser if he is black?
And this was asked in Mo'nique capacity as personal adivsor for the abused everywhere? Abuse may be common but it personal to everyone,so she was dead on when she said "however Rihanna wanted to handle it...". Shame on that reporter...a good – no GREAT for Mo'nique. Now go get that Oscar girl :))
the white media takes every opportunity or creates opportunities to report Black on Black crime. Black people are seldom if ever asked questions about the inappropriate behaviors of whites. Obviously the bases of the question was to get a Black woman, to destroy Black man.
Have always loved monique's work. Phat Girls was wonderful. and her talk show is refreshing. In Precious she was the true epitomy of fine acting. Out of her element she hit it out of the theatre. You Go Girl, the OSCAR IS YOURS
I'm so happy for you, Mo'nique!!! I hope you win the Oscar. You deserve it!!
Obviously the reporter on the scene was not a professional. Why in the hell are they going to ask Mo'nique about something that is so yesterday's news?
Go'head! Mo'Nique! Good for you and congrats on your win!
I'm thinking there were an awful lot of Hollywood "stars" showing up at the awards show blathering about how everyone else should get involved–why aren't they working down in Haiti?
Did the reporter ask Merle Streep the same questions? Get my point?
