Fresh off the success of his current film release, Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail (which grossed over $41 million opening weekend), Perry is already planning a quick escape from the madness of Hollywood. Recently, the 39 year old bachelor confirmed to People Magazine that for his 40th birthday (September 14th) he plans to join the ranks of David Copperfield and Mel Gibson with the purchase of the ultimate getaway. A tropical island paradise!
“I’m a loner by nature, so when I’m out there on these islands, I just feel like the only person in the world,”
After recently spending a week vacationing on a private island in the Great Exumas in the Bahamas, he admits it’s not all relaxation: “Renting an island is the best place for me to work uninterrupted.”
What will he call his own private isle? “It won’t be Tyler Perry’s Island!” he laughs. “I’m so sick of seeing Tyler Perry all over everywhere!”
Instead, he’ll wait until he’s inspired by the exotic locale, which he hasn’t quite decided on yet. “It’ll speak to me,” he says. “I’ll know what to call it once I’m there.”
I’m sitting here wondering what would possibly go on on TP’s island paradise. Will there be tons of Madea-esque drag queens struttin around smoking cigarettes in bikini’s or sexy island mami’s catering to his every whim? Hmmmm? *scratching head* We’ll never know…cause Tyler’s already imposed one rule before he’s even signed the closing documents… No paparazzi! So I guess we’ll just have to either wait for an invite or use our imagination…
Have fun Tyler! 🙂 Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail is in theatres now.
