Looking for love this Christmas? It might be right in your face. That’s the case for Malinda Williams, on TV anyway. She stars in Marry Me For Christmas on Aspire. Chi-town, stand up. Beyonce’s in town and she’s ready to rock, so you better be in the house. If you can’t make it to Chicago, you can catch Ginuwine or Kem in Washington, D.C. They’re both there the weekend, so if you’re in love, it’s the kind of show that will make you and your S/O feel good. If you’d just rather sit home and watch TV, Nia Long and Larenz Tate bring love and dope verses to the Chicago poetry scene of the 90’s in the insta-classic movie Love Jones. Or if you’d rather see a woman kickin’ butt – Zoe Saldana does her best in Columbiana. And of course, Madea’s back and just in time for Christmas.
