    Chile…I’ll never be able to listen to “Something In My Heart” the same way again after seeing this movie ?

    Beats By Dre aka Surviving Compton was a pretty good bio pic. But then I saw her on the Wendy Williams show and realized that Michele is not very bright.

  8. RihYonce October 18, 2016

    This movie was amazing ! I already watched it 3 times. It’s so sad but it was well done. We need More biopics

    I’m happy for her. The movie was good. Perfect for Lifetime. It was basically a story about domestic abuse. Po’thang was getting treated like s*** her whole life. Dr. Dre should just apologize, give her a hug & hand over a few million dollar checks for her pain & suffering. Now I understand why she was acting all weird & retarded on R&B: Has Beens.

    • Noname October 20, 2016

      ?”she sure did act retarded

  10. Torrance October 18, 2016

    I’m sorry this was sad because she was so weak minded.
    How you going to allow yourself to be sent to emergency repeatedly by a man and claim he loves you. Then say a man is pure evil and then sleep with him repeatedly and eventually have his baby.
    She forgot to mention she was broke and was throwing that p**** at the highest bidder after Dre.

    Michel’le is just so dope! I’ve NEVER heard another singer that sings like her…if I had to describe her voice, I would say it’s operatic – it
    has a dramatic feel to it…and her speaking voice is endearing! Now let’s talk about the STRENGTH of Michel’le…people say, why did she stay? Why did she put up with it? Michel’le is the reason Dre and Suge made it this far! I TRULY believe that…she’s been an ANGEL to the both of them – no other way to explain it! That face has been hit and broken, but it’s STILL PRETTY…her spirit has been shaken to the core, but she’s STILL SHINING! Dre and Suge better thank the high heavens for Michel’le!

    It was a good movie but it was so sad to watch the scenes where she was contancely getting beat and mistreated was very emotional and sad almost had me in tears to watch she was going threw alot with both men so glad she survive and had the strength to get out of both relationships while she still can so sad.

    I don’t have pity for females like this. I thought the movie was nicely documented, but pretty dumb.
