Lee Daniels, director of The Butler and executive producer of the smash FoxTV hit Empire, recently defended himself against accusations that he got actress/comedienne Mo’Nique blackballed from Hollywood after her Oscar win.

Daniels recently appeared spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon about the controversy surrounding Mo’Nique’s claims and explains how he simply asked Mo’Nique to play Hollywood politics during awards season, and she famously refused.

While Daniels praised Mo’Nique’s talents — “she’s brilliant, and I like working with brilliant people” — Daniels said that the outspoken actress made numerous “demands” during the awards campaign for Precious that damaged her own reputation.
Daniels also explains to Lemon how ‘reverse racism’ and Mo’Nique’s failure to thank crucial people during her Oscar speech sealed her fate. He also expressed that if his willingness to ‘play the game’ makes him a ‘sell-out’ then he’ll be selling out all the theaters (and going straight to the bank)!
But wait… there’s more! Mo’Nique also did the rounds responding to Lee’s claims and even revealed that he offered her the role of Cookie in Empire (*sigh).

This one image of a dress has sparked a huge online debate for days now after a woman posted online asking:
guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the fuck out
What do you see? Is it white and gold? or blue and black? What color is the dress… ‘in real life’?
The fact that an image of an ugly dress could create an online battle is insane, but it’s hilarious nonetheless.
What started as an innocent question turned into a color war that’s lasted for over 48 hours. Many on social media have been arguing about whether the picture depicts a dress as blue with black lace fringe or white with gold lace fringe. And neither side is willing to budge… that is…. until they look again and the image changes color!
The dress even went ‘hip-hop’ when QuestLove got in on the fun, posting the dress several times on instagram stating:
But wait… this fight is about more than just social media, it’s about primal biology and the way human eyes and brains have evolved to see color in a sunlit world.
That being said, there is no debate. Everyone saw what they were supposed to see and it’s all totally scientifically explainable.
