Gabourey Sidibe Goes For A Wild Ride In Foster The People's "Don't Stop" Music Video

Dec 9, 2011 12:05 PM

GSidibe031410_03_X17230.jpgGabourey Sidibe has found work .. in a music video for rock band Foster The People.

Not exactly what we'd expect from the Oscar-nominated actress.

The Precious 28-year-old starlet, and the band's frontman Mark Foster, are acting out a DMV-like scenario in the video for "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)."

Foster the People busted onto the music scene earlier this year with the hit single "Pumped Up Kicks." Wonder if Ms. Sidibe's cameo will help this song soar to the top of the charts?

Take a look and observe Gabby's wild car ride!

Gabourey Sidibe, star of Precious, is gracing the cover of Elle Magazine's October issue, however the publication is now being accused of lightening her skin color for the photo.

For the current issue celebrating the magazine's 25th anniversary, four actresses including Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried and Lauren Conrad, all received their own Elle cover.

Elle Magazine, who claims "nothing out of the ordinary" has been done to Sidibe's cover image, released the following statement:

    "We have four separate covers this month and Gabby's cover was not retouched any more or less than the others."

X17 Poll

Do you think Elle Magazine intentionally lightened Gabourey's skin color?

Yes! I can't believe they would do such a thing.
No! It was just the lighting used for the photo shoot.
Who cares! I think she looks great either way.

Gabourey Sidibe's Mother To Howard Stern: "Get A Life"

Mar 16, 2010 12:45 PM

gabbyhoward2010.jpgAlice Tan Ridley, Gabourey Sidibe's mom, isn't staying quiet about Howard Stern's remarks about her daughter's weight. Just last week, Stern had called the 26-year-old Precious actress the "most enormous fat black chick I've ever seen."

Ridley is blasting the shock jock for his comments telling Inside Edition:

    "Get a life! He can see, you can see, I can see Gabby is a big girl. She's a big woman, so what's wrong with that?" "She's not like everyone else in the world. I don't see him giving jobs out to anybody, so why should we care what he says?"

As for whether her plus-sized daughter will get more acting roles, Ridley adds: "He might not hire her, but someone else will."

This May, Gabby will start filming Showtime's dark comedy series The Big C.

Looks like despite the controversy, Miss Sidibe is doing just fine. Remember the famous line from LL Cool J's hit song, "Mama said knock you out..."

Put your dukes up, Howard!

Howard Stern Bashes Gabourey Sidibe, Calls Her "Enormous"

Mar 10, 2010 02:35 PM

gabbyhoward2010.jpgGabourey Sidibe may have fans around the world, but radio shock jock Howard Stern is not one of them.

On his radio show, Stern blasted the Precious star saying:

    "There's the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen. She is enormous. Everyone's pretending she's a part of show business and she's never going to be in another movie. She should have gotten the Best Actress award because she's never going to have another shot. What movie is she gonna be in?"

The 26-year old Oscar-nominated actress has some Hollywood heavyweights backing her blossoming career like Oprah, but Stern could care less. As for his thoughts of Lady O, Stern didn't hold back.

    "Oprah's another liar, a filthy liar. She's telling an enormous woman the size of a planet that she's going to have a career."

Ouch! But it looks like Miss Sidibe may have the last laugh.

The actress will play a gifted student opposite Laura Linney in Showtime's dark comedy series The Big C. The series will premiere this summer. The Oscar-nominee will also hit the big screen later this year in Yelling to the Sky, starring alongside Lenny Kravitz's daughter, Zoe.

Regardless of what Stern says, you have to admit that scoring a Golden Globe, SAG and Oscar nomination all in one year is pretty impressive! You go, Gabby!

Will Gabourey Push Toward A Best Actress Win?

Jan 17, 2010 04:31 PM

Helen Mirren's talen and Sandra Bullock's popularity aside, I totally hope Gabourey Sidibe takes the prize for Best Actress for her role in the hit Precious.

Isn't it more interesting for the newcomer,-- the girl who didn't get a $20 million paycheck, who killed it in a difficult role -- to win? I hope the Hollywood Foreign Press Association thinks so, 'cause this girl deserves it!
