Gabourey Sidibe knows how style and a bit of coordination when it comes to her clothing. Here she is below sporting the blue and brown on the shoes and the jacket. If you look close enough, you will see a bit of fur in the back as she strolls down the streets of NYC doing what looks to be a little shopping.
In other news about Gabourey Sidibe, instead of the too fat horrible comments coming off of Howard Stern, there are now comments coming forth about her skin color and this being a reason as to why she won’t make it in Hollywood. Some believe, as this particular article in SFC that Hollywood isn’t ready for her tone. If not, they better get ready. Anyway, there are plenty of darker toned actors in Hollywood, far beyond being light skinned or white. Denzel Washington, Sidney Poitier, Don Cheadle and for females Whoopi Goldberg & Angela Bassett just to drop a few. But hey, I get it. We all get it. Lighter skinned is the norm and it would make it easier for any role if unfortunately the truth must be told as the same thing goes for modeling or just getting a regular 9 to 5. The stigma is out there.
Also, there are even weight loss clinics now targeting the new found star. They just won’t give Gabourey a break. According to TMZ, Assaisupply.com is calling Gabourey’s weight “a terrible affliction” and saying that the concern here is about her health. They also wrote a letter of prediction on her future Oscar wins – only if she loses weight.
Really, all these people need to find a better way to approach a young and talented actress such as Gabourey. Being concerned about her is one thing, but trying to use words to impede her future and possible her own self worth is disgusting and wrong. On top of that, all the people telling her that she can’t do something based on her weight or color is pretty pathetic. There is a place in this world for everyone, and right now, Gabourey has her place. Try blessing her and not attempting to curse her future off of shallowness. Real talk.
So far, Gabourey hasn’t responded to any of it herself, but her mom, Alice Ridley, did step up to the plate telling it like it is: “They didn’t make you, don’t let them break you.” Great advice, mom!
