UPDATED First Look: The Cadillac Records Movie

The first full set of pics from the Cadillac Records movie starring Beyonce (as Etta James), Mos Def, Gabrielle Union, and others have been released: Cedric The Entertainer is in the movie. And Mos Def looks like he's going to be pulling off another great performance. More pics when you read the rest...

Nice.  Since I typically love semi-modernized period movies, I'll be watching.

UPDATE: Beyonce talked to InStyle about her new Etta James role:

"I gained almost 15 pounds to play the role," Beyoncé, 27, says in the November issue of In Style. "It was way easier – and tastier – than having to lose so much weight for Dreamgirls." Her legendary role didn't only affect her figure, but it also rubbed off on her music. "Lyrically, it's deeper than what I've done before," the singer, who recently debuted two singles, says of her album due Nov. 18. "I wasn't mature enough or old enough, or in touch with myself enough, to do this type of album before. I didn't have the guts."

How did Jay-z allow her to work on another film with dude....oh he made her get married first.! LOLOL. Beyonce need to take a seat some where I as so tired of her. She is the Diana Ross of our day..pretty but no real talent...just hype and fab clothes!

Just because the majority of people love someone and you get a few who don't, you automatically assume the ones who don't are just being negative for the hell of it. That is not always the case, some people love you, some don't, that's the reality of life and Beyonce doesn't get a pass. I am very proud of her success, but that's not to say that she's great either. It is possible to be proud of a black woman for her success, but still not think she's all that fab.

I must say I love me some

I must say I love me some Beyonce (singing) not acting, but I will give the movie a chance. Tyra is a fool, she lets the good ones go all the time. Bianca looks great.

I have a feeling that Mos Def's performance will outshadow Bey's like Jennifer Hudson's did in Dream Girls. Bey is talented and chick is hot, but her acting leaves much to be desired.

Beyonce can sing, dance,

Beyonce can sing, dance, entertain, and pop vagina like no one else...BUT SHE CANNOT ACT! It's been proven time and time again. I want her to do well but when I think of the actually TALENTED ACTRESSES who never get a shot, it's just a shame. And WHY are some of you acting like this woman can actually act?! Pure confusion!
