Rat in a Cage

19, bored, teetering on the edge of psychotic misery

“A long time ago I learned not to explain things to people. It misleads them into thinking they’re entitled to know everything I do.”

– Lisa Kleypas (via ugh)

In regards to MH370, which went missing a few months ago:

I believe it is out there somewhere. Maybe sitting in some remote US airbase or something. There are reasons governments/people would do this; maybe it was a hijacking or a heist. But the plane itself probably did not crash. A boeing 777 doesn’t just disappear with no signs or debris.
In 20 years there will probably be some leaked CIA document about a heist. You cannot trust the government, no matter how sweet Obama or any other politician may seem. For REAL.

Nina Simone's Daughter: 'My Mother Could Be A Monster' »

he forthcoming biopic of the late singer’s life starring Zoe Saldana has been put on pause due to its own drama. Writer and director Cynthia Mort has been locked out by a legal dispute with the producers. This makes Lisa smile. She said:

"They did not ask me or the Nina Simone estate to participate in the film at all. It is based on a lie because it is based on the life of my mother’s assistant, Clifton Henderson. Clifton was gay so he could not have had an affair with my mother, which is what the film implies. And my mother was raised at a time when she was told her nose was too wide, her skin was too dark…She was rejected by the U.S. She loved classical music and wanted to become the first black classical pianist but her dreams turned to dust because of the colour of her skin. Zoe Saldana portraying her is a bad joke because there are more gifted actresses who are more in keeping with my mother’s appearance.

I know how my mother would feel about Zoe, so they are making a mockery of her experiences to construct their own truth. The goal seems to be to bleed me dry of everything my mother stood for, of everything she sacrificed. She had many experiences in her life that left her feeling sad and angry. They approached the estate for permission to use some of the songs but as administrator I refused. I had the biggest laugh when I heard that Cynthia Mort had been pushed out of the film. You could call it karma. There is most certainly a divine order at work.”

If Nina Simone’s own daughter has objects then you know the film is a piece of trash

This should get more notes
