T.D. Jakes Hits The Streets of L.A. Using Madea GPS
Can you imagine getting in your car, turning on your GPS system and seeing Madea’s face? No thank you!
T.D. Jakes has a lot of patience in this hilarious clip of him driving around in Los Angeles via a Madea GPS system. Hopefully he makes it safe and sound to his next destination, since we heard Tyler Perry is waiting for him to chat about his new film, Boo! A Madea Halloween.
While Madea, is all fun and games, Perry told EBONY he is ALL about his business. And it shows:
“The end game was owning the studio and hiring thousands of people and while everybody else is talking about diversity, I’m actually making something happen. If you look at the DGA (Directors Guild of America) reporting that one-fourth of all diversity in cable television was because of me, one man. How could 25 percent be because of one man? Well, the reason is I’m not sitting around focusing talking about a damn dress. I’m making things change and making things happen.”
The Los Angeles Times reported that the movie racked up an estimated $27.6 million during its opening weekend in the U.S. and Canada, well above the studio’s projections of $15 million and industry expectations of $15 to $20 million. It is the third-highest debut for a Madea film, behind 2009’s “Madea Goes to Jail” and 2006’s “Madea’s Family Reunion.”
Tune in on Tuesday, October 25, at 6pm on OWN to see Tyler Perry and T.D. Jakes chat it up.
