Brooklyn born, Harlem raised Gabourey ‘Gabby’ Sidibe is on the fast track to super stardom, and luckily for her (and us as well), she didn’t have to become a contestant on a reality show in order to do it. Dropping out of the sky from from no where Gabby has been making the rounds in Hollywood and blurring the lines of what beauty truly means. The bright and shining star of the recently released film Precious is not only garnering Oscar buzz for her roll as the illiterate teenage mother and namesake of the movie, she’s also branched out into modeling for trendy plus sized line Torrid. A loyal Torrid fan and an avid shopper, in a recent interview with Metromix Atlanta, the 26 year old stated that after landing her role as Precious she went on a shopping spree in a nearby Torrid to reward herself. Now that’s brand dedication!
After countless hours scouring the internet, I finally found a theater that was showing Precious at select times throughout the weekend. Check out our review of the film by M.I.S.S. Gee! Although I had to drive about an hour away from my house the film was well worth the over expensive gas and all that time. The movie is better than good, better than great. I don’t even know if I have an adequate word to accurately describe how amazing Precious actually is, but I will say this: It’s worth every single penny. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for Gabby Sidibe, because she’s already a star in my book.
