Not everyone was feeling Zac Efron’s new “just for fun” dreadlock hairstyle when he posted a new Instagram photo on Friday. The black and white photo shows Efron sporting some type of pointy, thin and rolled hairstyle, or as I like to refer to them as “wypipolocs.”

BET Awards: I’m Too Old for This  BET Awards: I’m Too Old for This

If you took the DNA of Dorothy from Golden Girls, Daria Morgendorffer, Richard Pryor and Thanos, you’d basically have me. I’m kind of cutthroat and take no…

Superfly: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

A couple of weeks ago I attended a media screening of Superfly, and I couldn’t help paying attention to the fact that so many other people from various media publications had no idea about the original movie.
