She might have already been somewhere around Tom Cruise-jumping-on-Oprah’s-couch crazy before, but now Lil Kim has pretty much gone off the charts, nearing Michael Jackson-crazy (and we’re not talking about her plastic surgery). Oh, you hadn’t heard? Biggie talks to Kim in her dreams, and apparently he is not happy with his recent biopic, Notorious. Not happy at all.
Lil Kim told RapRadar.com that she is ticked about the way she was portrayed in Notorious, and said beyond-the-grave-Biggie agrees.
“I’m a very spiritual person and he’s come to me many times in my dreams,” she said. “But I don’t think he’s happy at all, at all! Because Ms. Wallace doesn’t know Biggie at all and she barely knows Christopher, if you know what I mean. At all! And I was around. Even before he blew up so crazy, so I know how he felt about his mom. And Biggie was so much more than what they put him out to be in that movie. And to be honest with you, I know for a fact he’s not happy. He’s not satisfied at all. At all. And regardless of the fact, everybody who is involved in this movie, he has love for. Everybody. But at the end of the day, he knows who’s who and what’s what. Believe that. And let me tell you something, the way he’s feeling is going to come out later. You’re going to see who he really loved and the ones that’s standing up for him the right way is the ones representing him the right way.”
This is just the latest in an on-going tiff between Kim and P. Diddy, Biggie’s mom Voletta Wallace and former wife Faith Evans. Kim was upset because she wasn’t involved in the production of the film, even though one of the screenwriters said he contacted Kim and worked with her on the development of her character. Of course, she’s also not thrilled with the casting.
“I wouldn’t have picked a known actress,” Kim said. “I would’ve went to Brooklyn [and] had a casting call, to be honest with you. Because there is nobody who could’ve pulled off that Lil’ Kim/ Brooklyn feeling besides a Brooklyn girl who grew up in Brooklyn and knows what that’s like. That’s what I would’ve done.”
Knows what it’s like to speak to dead rappers in her dreams? No Kim. Nobody knows what that’s like. Even in Brooklyn.
