I caught a glimpse of some beautiful shots of Meagan on Brown Sista. Catch the rest here. Meagan is just too beautiful! She takes fantastic photographs.
I love the earthy, bronzed tone of this first picture. Anyone getting any strong African vibes from it? According to Brown Sista, in the interview for the magazine, Meagan talks about the importance of her identity as a strong black woman and talks about wanting to visit Africa. She is very conscious – love this girl!
As usual, I am always on the hunt for black women in magazines so if you know of any, drop me an email and let me know thanks!
I went to Wood Green today and watched The Unborn by myself. I don’t even know how I did that seeing that I hate going to the cinema alone to watch horror-thrillers. The Unborn follows a young woman, Casey, who is tormented by a dybbuk, a lost soul according to Jewish mysticism. Meagan plays Casey’s best friend. It’s a small part but she lights up the screen when she is on it.
Orville mentioned something in a comment of one of my posts that she is one of the black actresses who could headline a film at the moment. She is beautiful, has screen presence and can act. The Unborn is a chilling thriller. If it is meant to make you think twice about supernatural shit, it got me thinking.
I would give it 2/5 coals for the look of the film and the fast pace. The story could have dealt with more explaining though.
P/S – Any Idris fans, his sexy arse/body/face was also in the film in a small but as always gorgeous role. Although I miss his Hackney accent.

Meagan Good is one of those actresses who has beauty on her side and talent but has made terrible film choices (You Got Served) but who has recently been in well performing box office films like The Unborn which comes out in the UK on Friday.
She was first in Eve’s Bayou, one of the most accomplished films I have ever seen. I think Meagan’s cool. She has a cool, detached aura about her.
I hope The Unborn does well for her in the UK. It’s nice seeing black women doing different kinds of roles like horror and thriller films, because frankly, those films make money at the box office.
Box office clout = equals better roles = more dosh = respect.
Go Meagan. I’ll be interested to see how her career plays out. NB, Jurnee Smollett was also in Eve’s Bayou.

Variety went on to say in their review of Meagan’s new film, The Unborn: Continue reading
I remember the days when I was a weave girl. Those fat cornrows littering the back of my scalp. I could always hear the thread embedding itself in the cornrows, before the sheets of human hair were framing my face.
My friends and I love what I call “weave-watching”, especially on famous people like youknowwho. Critiquing weaves seems to be a favourite past-time for many women, whether you are talking about famous women are not. When I think about the days when I was wearing weaves, I think I always knew it was not me. They made me look like an entirely different person. Continue reading
