https://www.grammy.com/grammys/news/poll-lady-gaga-lil-nas-x-rupaul-sylvester-more-whats-your-favorite-lgbtqia-pride-anthem On june 1, the recording academy asked the public for their favorite LGBTQIA+ Pride anthem. You had until June 15 to vote. Well the poll is closed, and we can declare the winner. With a whopping 38% of the vote the winner of the favorite pride anthem is none other than Vogue By Madonna, for over 31 years Vogue has told us the only way to get over heartache, feel alive and Magical, where life is a ball is on the dance floor where you can strike a pose. The top 3 are #1 Vogue By Madonna (1990) #2 Born this Way by Lady Gaga (2011) #3 I'm coming out by Diana Ross (1980) No Britney spears, which upset @Jordan Miller, but like I said to some friends, this is to be expected, since the academy never took her seriously as an artist, but she still is a Grammy winner thanks to Toxic winning best dance recording in 2005 . But congrats to the queen of pop and the gay anthem indeed.
Lately I've been thinking about some of my favorite movies featuring great performances from Black pop stars. Obviously the late, great Whitney Houston comes to mind right away. The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, The Preacher's Wife. Whitney wowed us as a leading lady in The Bodyguard and her performance broke barriers at the time. Even though she faced criticism from film critics, it's safe to say some of her movies have undoubtedly stood the test of time. Mariah has been cast in some very impressive dramatic roles in Lee Daniels films Precious and The Butler. Justice For Glitter! Beyonce in Dreamgirls and The Lion King. Janet Jackson (Miss Jackson if you're nasty) in Poetic Justice Diana Ross, Janelle Monae, Aaliyah, Will Smith. The list goes on... I'm curious what some of your fave crossover performances are. Let's discuss!
