“Auhhh….Sooooo here’s the deal; This is not the way to get my attention; If you’re looking for a role in one of my shows,please DON’T DO THIS,SAVE YOUR MONEY!! This is the third time that someone has done this; PLEASE STOP! To audition is free, I’m sure you can use that money for better purpose.“-TYLER PERRY.(there’s more, follow the link to read more of what Perry and others had to say.)
I am a huge fan! I never met anyone who did not enjoy his shows. Mr.Perry is a master of his crafts; excellent play writer, director , producer and promoter extraordinaire. One of my dreams, has been to shake hands with him and probably share one or two of my aspirations and, get his candid opinion. Ironically, we both call ATL home and, you’d think all this years, I could have met him. But alas, squash that notion, after seeing how he handled a doting admirer who’s dream was to be “the NEXT LEADING LADY” in his show, I think not!
Mr. Perry who portrays the famous Madea character has had much success acting , directing and producing on small screens , theaters and big screens. Over 32 movies and counting! Movies like these favorites “I can do Bad All by my self‘ (featuring Taraji Henson): Good Deeds,(featuring Thandie Newton and Gabunionwade) Temptation (confession of a Marriage counselor) and Hit T.V series; Meet The Browns, The Haves and Have Nots on OWN network among others. The highly successful 49 year old actor and producer is worth approximately $600 million!

RACQUEL BAILEY an actress aspiring for bigger opportunities, took a leap of faith and rented a Billboard in Atlanta, where she declared her intentions (apparently a selfie won’t do justice) to play his next “leading lady”.
I thought it was an ingenious move on the part of Ms. Bailey, calculating but harmless motivation, bold, and somewhat funny. It reveals a great deal of her character; determination! But Mr. Perry was not buying the whole idea. He disliked it and, made some remarks ,as well as , provided advice to future dreamers on how to get on his show , to audition just like everyone else, and ‘it’s free’!
The post which has gone viral, got thousands of views and commentaries on INSTAGRAM:
hairkandyatl said ” Well it looks like to me that she got your attention…mission accomplished lol@tylerperry.“
Camsaidso agrees “ exactly, so I can’t be upset that she went above and beyond the politics to say’ here I am ‘, And he knows good and well he’s hired folk that never had to audition at all….“
Here’s Ms BAILEY ‘s response to Mr. PERRY‘s Commentary.
I feel Mr. PERRY was overwhelmed at all the shenanigans and over the top attitude many have gone through to get his attention or approval. But it comes with the territory of being a super star! However, he mustn’t forget his own journey and the importance of keeping a dream alive. He should not have made a sarcastic remark at end; “God bless you day dreamer. I have no doubt you will make it one day!“
What I see in the future for Ms BAILEY is; this will work out for her good, and one way or another, she has accomplished her goal ,even better because, not only did Mr.PERRY take notice, a lot of other creative producers and talent hunters did too! This will definitely put her in limelight and, create many better opportunities ; she will be overwhelmed! Remember I told you so!
