“Viola Davis Wears Her Hair Natural at the Oscars”

^^^ That was the headline on People.com last night during the telecast of the 84th Annual Oscar Awards last night.

I was shocked and taken aback when I read that gratuitous headline.

The article went on to mention how “completely comfortable” Viola Davis looked wearing her own “rich reddish crop” of hair offset by the “emerald-hued Vera Wang dress and glamorous green earrings.” How shameful and embarrassing is it that in 2012 — with a black president occupying the White House — we as a human race make headlines for being “comfortable” wearing our own hair?

Offsetting her rich reddish crop with an emerald-hued Vera Wang gown and glamorous green earrings, Davis looked completely comfortable — and totally stunning — as she walked down the carpet to take her seat in the theater as a best actress nominee for The Help. Says the star of changing up her style, “It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I’m spicing up my life a bit.”

Wow. She’s spicing her life up by wearing her natural hair? We should all bow our heads in disgrace at how far we’ve come.

    It turns out that Meagan Good isn’t the only person being considered for the lead role in the upcoming Whitney Houston biopic.

    She faces stiff competition as Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks have also been mentioned for the role. In addition, Willow Smith may play Whitney as a child and Vivica A. Fox is expected to have a part in the movie as well.

    It ain’t that serious Sandra. The critics were talking about everyones hair when they were braking down there look. At least she got a thumbs up. Cameron Diaz didn’t. It’s a differant look for her for the first time during this award season so of course it stood out.

    Anywho, she looks beautiful and I want my hurr did like hers. (while I ponder whether to grow my locks back)

    @ MzDallas, Meagan should play her or Sanaa Lathan, whoever gets the role will be destined for an Osca rlike Jamie Foxx in Ray. Jordan doesn’t have enough street cred to play anyone other than the naive girl next door, Jennifer is too blah for the role, give it to Megan or Sanaa

    How can anyone be mad at this when the premier black woman, er, woman of color is a white woman with blonde hair?

    The Yak is supposed to be the premier black woman, and her husband, the premier black man. They pay people to write up stuff about them weekly. And are treated as the most stylish and astute black people on the planet in news planted by them.

    So, many women (especially women in atlanta) get all of their styling tips from television and cable shows. Most women here are some adaptation of some homo or transexual dream. Almost all of the men are natural (except for the “special” queens), but most of the women are extremely artificial.

    This is so true, Cocoa. But you know, black people keep tripping them ownselves up. We make millionaires out of people who call us niggas, bytches, and hoes. We copy those who go to the extreme of not even looking black, by adopting fake, blonde hair.

    All of this in the age of the first president with African ancestry in him. We are much more whack than the slaves were. They had to be whack. We don’t have an excuse.

    To me she always looked uncomfortable in those ugly wigs.

    My hair was like this for nearly 7 months. I relaxed it in November. Just two weeks ago I cut it off again and now I’m back to Natural. I allowed my husband and son to talk me into relaxing my hair again. But I felt the most comfortable (and confident) with my natural look. So, I’m team natural again and don’t give a rat’s azz who doesn’t like it. I will be 37 this week and I am starting to not give a f**k what others think about me. So many of us (women) hide behind hair to cover up insecurities. I was one of those women.

    Viola looked stunning and I pray she keeps this look from now on.

    That’s the myth, Free. All of these white performers wear as much weave and hair pieces as the black performers do. With black performers, it is just more obvious because it doesn’t fit us most of the time.

    As producers scramble to complete a script for the Whitney Houston biopic, Rihanna has emerged as a contender for the lead role. Find out who else is on the shortlist inside……

    It turns out that Meagan Good isn’t the only person being considered for the lead role in the upcoming Whitney Houston biopic.

    She faces stiff competition as Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks have also been mentioned for the role. In addition, Willow Smith may play Whitney as a child and Vivica A. Fox is expected to have a part in the movie as well.

    wth!! robyn first contender, who is going to do the voice-over for her??!! I dont want to see jhud or jsparks .. smdh

    This role should go to Tamyra Gray. She has the looks and vocals for the role.

    Most black women more trannied out than trannies. I was looking at some old blackploitation movies this weekend, and noted how small and stunning natural the people were. I mean, even if someone was sporting a press n curl or a perm, they still looked black. I wonder how they did that. Maybe Tyler Perry can fund a movie and show us how.

    This is so beautiful to see. Black women need to start embracing their blackness. These weaves, wigs, and hair processing to look like the
    European woman sickens me. No matter how straight you wear your hair, you will always be BLACK. We were blessed with the texture of her hair. we can wear it in so many ways. Just remember who you are. Just by the above headline, it shows how obsess we are with wigs and weaves that when we finally wear our hair the way God intended us too, even the whites have something to say about it.

    I get offended when people assume I’m mixed with something because of my grade of hair, like black folks hair have to be one way.

    I know a chick that has a motto, “if it aint weave, it aint right” I just look at her stupid though.

    My sister swears by her 27 piece quick weave too, I don’t even remember the last time I saw her real hair, let alone a pony tail!

    @sandra
    So are white people trying to be black w/ the lip shots, booty shots and the tanning???

    People just be yourself. Dress how you want, be who you want. If a difference only if you are putting down one race over another

    It was missing Terry McMillian having any self esteem. It was released the week before she went on Oprah and admitted she had inklings about that butt pirate she had married and she was :hump: him during the writing of it.

    That bish who said that ish about the spreadsheet was just mad cause she looked at me like she had NEVER seen me in LIFE that whole week! Left here on Friday with cornrows…came back on Monday with Big Ben…and went to the BSS and caught a cute wig on sale on Wed and wore my new-NEW hair to work on Thursday..in numma 4. Saw this bish in the kitchen the next morning and she was like “3 hairdo’s in a WEEK…etc etc” all loud. She stopped speaking to me after I put that spreadsheet in her mailbox. IDGAF.

    To me she always looked uncomfortable in those ugly wigs.

    My hair was like this for nearly 7 months. I relaxed it in November. Just two weeks ago I cut it off again and now I’m back to Natural. I allowed my husband and son to talk me into relaxing my hair again. But I felt the most comfortable (and confident) with my natural look. So, I’m team natural again and don’t give a rat’s azz who doesn’t like it. I will be 37 this week and I am starting to not give a f**k what others think about me. So many of us (women) hide behind hair to cover up insecurities. I was one of those women.

    Viola looked stunning and I pray she keeps this look from now on.

    _______________________

    Congrats! Nothing wrong with wearing your own natural hair. I know when i went natural, my confidence sky rocketed. And it’s so exciting to try new products and styles that compliment your hair.

    i’m really tired of the ‘u wear weave so ur not embracing ur blackness’ talk

    _____________________________

    well I ask exactly what are you embracing when we wear an Indian womans hair she donated at a temple for religious purposes? (Talk about bad Karma)…what are we embracing when we wear a Malaysian woman’s hair she sold it to make ends meet? What are we embracing when we wear cattle hair (YAK)on our heads? What are we embracing when we wear hair that young girls were forced to cut off so it can be sold? What are we embracing when we wear synthetic hair made our of chemicals or made under conditions we know nothing about (WEAVE RASH HELLO!) What are we embracing when we give your hard earned dollars to overseas Asian exporters of hair who have told black business men and women who want to import hair point blank that they don’t do business with blacks? Thus cutting black people out of a majorly lucrative section of a 9 billion dollar industry…I know people say Im switching it up or doing me, but if it’s not that serious and we know all of this is going on to get the hair we buy. Why do we support it. The reason its a significant number of black women don’t feel comfortable with their hair. The terms “bad hair” “nappy” etc..are still being thrown around too much to say we are comfortable with hair the way it grows out of our heads. And we spend too much money on it in proportion to our incomes to say it’s just fashion or a trend. No it’s psychological. Don’t tell me about white women doing it either…They have always participated in facades and the exploitation of others to get what they want for the most frivolous reasons. Doesn’t mean black people should do the same? So Im ready for the backlash because this I strongly believe.

    She looks beautiful!
    Wendy Williams was showing major SHADE last night on her show when a white stylist commented how beautiful Viola looked with her own hair. You know Wendy hasn’t seen her real hair in the last 3 years since she made it to the “Big” time. :rolleyes:
