When your teenage daughter becomes a porn star

It's no longer news that the teenage daughter of actor, Laurence Fishburne, 49, is now a porn star.

Montana Fishburne, 19, just made a porn film in conjunction with Vivid Entertainment. She's hoping a sex tape will propel her onto the A-list.

"I view making this movie as an important first step in my career. I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape. I'm hoping the same magic will work for me. I'm impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities and this seemed like a great way to get started on it.'

The film is due out in August.

It's not funny but excuse me while I pause to chuckle at this girl's stupidity. A porn movie will propel your career? Wow!!! Isn't this the saddest thing happening in Hollywood? Where young girls think that the fastest way to get recognition is to release a sex tape? If it worked for Paris, Kim K, Kendra etc, then it can work for them huh? How pathetic!!! She's in for a rude awakening. Once you start doing porn, nobody is going to touch you in Hollywood.

 BTW, Kim K might be popular but she's definitely not an A-lister. If you're looking for an A-list celebrity to emulate or look up to, there's Beyonce. Halle Berry. Tyra Banks. And many other strong, successful black women.
This girl needs some talking to...

Swizz Beatz' Russian baby mama disses Alicia Keys?

 Jahna ranted about an ordeal on her blog some days ago and closed her post by saying,

"Hearing about some of today's successful artists, who for their career sleep with producers jumping from one to another, break up marriages even when kids are involved and take everything for themselves with no sense of morality, building their image by speculating on sacred things, then get Grammys and worldwide promotion, I think to myself that somehow they get away with it too easy, but what is happening within their soul?"

Think she's talking about Alicia?
But this is like pot calling kettle black. She had a baby for a married man too...
