“Precious” herself, Gabby Sidibe hit the red carpet for the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards fiesta at Cipriani in New York City the other day. Gabby was celebrating her win for Best Breakthrough Actress for her portrayal of “Precious” in the movie based on the novel “Push.”
You know, I get a stange amount of emails from people sending me pictures of Gabby and asking my thoughts on her. I guess when you make fun of a little girl like Bindi Irwin people assume you’ll take on those who are overweight as well. Normally, you’d be right. However I have a strange line of what’s ok and what’s not ok to joke about. For some reason I’m not into tossing Gabby under the carpet. Too easy, I guess.
Gabby recently said, “If you look at Precious and all you see is someone who is overweight and dark-skinned, you’re missing the point. Just like if you look at me and all you see is someone who is overweight and dark-skinned. You’ve missed the point. You’ve missed me.”
See, now if that little Bindi Irwin issues a similar statement, I’ll ease up on her too.
