Score by Good Deeds Composer Aaron Zigman

I say nay to all the hateration going on with Kim Kardashian, Kanye's glamor gal and reality tv star who was cast in Tyler Perry's latest movie in contrast to Perry's least controversial decision in selecting longtime musical collaborator Aaron Zigman (Good Deeds, Madea's Big Happy Family) to score Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor Soundtrack.

It doesn't appear if there's an official soundtrack being released of Zigman's score. But a lot of the music in the movie is available as individual song downloads including music by Funkservice International, Billy Lamont, Chantel Claret featuring Pigeon John, Selah Sue, Jazmine Sullivan, Beast, Graffiti and Otis Redding's classic "Try a Little Tenderness".

Ever since Bruce Jenner bullied Kim and her brother Rob to participate in a celebrity boxing match to benefit The Dream Foundation, I give my props to Kim for not backing down. The pretty girl and reality star even sustained a black eye by choosing to fight just to show her support of this charity. So I throw my support behind Kim who's just like any other actress trying to make a living in Hollywood and who are all these other people that are dissing Perry? Try raising yourself up from living in poverty, write your own plays and movies then you can cast anyone you want.

Perry has since defended his decision to cast Kim in multiple interviews and the issue doesn't seem to have been put to rest, just yet. During press for Good Deeds, Perry found himself still having to talk about Kardashian in interviews with Chelsea Handler, Gayle King and more. Yet, no one bats an eye at the casting of Vanessa Williams who at one time faced her own controversy and scandal with nude photos when she was Miss America. It would be interesting to see what chatter went on behind the scenes on set. Perhaps Williams offered Kardashian tips on how to weather the negative media blips.

Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor starring Jurnee Smollett (Friday Night Lights, Eve's Bayou, The Great Debaters) also appeared in three episodes of the television series True Blood as Nicole Wright. The cast of Temptation also featured Kim Kardashian, Lance Gross (Meet the Brown's, Our Family Wedding, "House of Payne"), Robbie Jones (Hurricaine Season and "one Tree Hill), Vanessa Williams (Soul Food, "Ugly Betty", "Desperate Housewives", Brandy, Ella Joyce and Jerry Stiller ("Seinfeld", "The King of Queens"). The movie was originally scheduled for a summer release date of July 27, 2012 but was pushed out until March 29, 2013. The movie was released on Blu-Ray / DVD July 9, 2013.

Tyler Perry's latest movie, formerly titled We the Peeples and now just Peeples starring Scandal's Kerry Washington, Craig Robinson (The Office) & David Alan Grier (In Living Color) opened May 10, 2013. Kim Kardashian's next big release date is the expected arrival of "Kimye" with a possible due date of June 18th.

Temptation Trailer Songs - "Love the Way You Lie" Part 2 by Rihanna

At first I didn't recognize the song in the Temptation Confessions of a Marriage Counselor Trailer until Rihanna started singing the distinctive line "Just gonna stand there and watch me burn". So I started googling "Watch Me Burn Acoustic Version" until I found "Love the Way You Lie Part II" which is Rihanna's solo release of the song.

You may know the other more upbeat rap version of the song which was released as a duet with Eminem and the searing video that accompanied it. I believe the song was released in the aftermath of Rihanna's kerfuffle with Chris Brown.


Love the Way You Lie Part 2 - Rihanna

Some would argue that Rihanna is only lying to herself when it comes to hooking back up with her fiery but uber talented ex and now current boyfriend Chris Brown.

I thought the actress looked familiar but couldn't quite place her. You may remember Jurnee when she played a teenager in Friday Night Lights, joining the cast in seasons 4 & 5. That's right, she played Jess Merriweather, Landry's love interest before moving on to date Vince. But now she's all grown up and put her smoldering looks to good use. According to IMDb, Jurnee's exotic looks come from her parents. Her father is Jewish and her mother is African American.

Jurnee's looks kind of remind me of Jennifer Hudson. It could be the way the two hold themselves up as beautiful, strong, classy ladies. What do you think, could the two play sisters?

Perry's Good Deeds Composer - The Zigman/Perry Joint Filmography

What often goes largely unappreciated by Tyler Perry amidst the controversy with Kim Kardashian, his much talked about ongoing feud with Spike Lee for cranking out movies that depict black folks as "buffoons" is that Tyler Perry is prolific and focused in his work, busy writing and producing plays, television shows and acting and directing in his own movies. Part of the secret to his success is his loyalty in working with trusted collaborators such as composer Aaron Zigman who has worked with Perry on more than ten movies.

Tyler Perry's Temptation Movie - The Preview Features Kim Kardashian

If you're not a fan of movies with infidelity then it's best to avoid this film but it's a film to check out if you're a fan of Kim Kardashian. She's a bit wooden in this preview clip but looks smashing as usual in a skin tight tube dress. What do you think?

It's her whiny voice that first narrates the clip but it's appropriate because prior to the movie's release, it was Kim that the media was most buzzing about. Within the first few seconds, Vanessa Williams pops up. No stranger to controversy, Williams was also a headline stealer in her day when she was a tabloid favorite as well. So Perry knew absolutely full well what he was doing when the cast the ladies.

Jurnee reveals that she even acted on an episode of Full House when she was only 4 years old which surprised Perry who wasn't aware that the television comedy which helped established the careers of the Olsen twins and John Stamos also helped the Temptation star get her acting career established.

Tyler Perry Defends the Casting of Kim Kardashian

This is Tyler Perry's 13th feature film production with Lionsgate in the last 7 years shot on location in Atlanta, Georgia at Tyler Perry's 200,000 square foot studios. Before Good Deeds was released Lionsgate issued a press release which proudly tallied their joint collaboration together over the last 6 years, Perry's 11 movies have grossed over $572 million in North America alone. That doesn't even include overseas grosses or Perry's earnings from his stage plays, DVDs and television shows.

Perry's television shows include "House of Payne", "Meet the Browns" and his recent show "For Better or Worse". Lionsgate's co-COO and Motion Picture Group President Joe Drake explains Perry's latest trajectory across multiple platforms, "With Good Deeds and now The Marriage Counselor, he is exploring issues that affect so many people, like balancing career and family, freedom and responsibility, and passion and duty- all while maintaining his signature style and his singular voice."

While Tyler Perry followed up with his excitement on his latest film projects "which explores family life even more up close and personally than I ever have before and speaks about so many universal issues and challenges that are dear to my own heart."

Spike Lee is one of the producers on this project directed by his cousin Malcolm D. Lee who directed the comedy bomb Scary Movie 5. No doubt, Lee is hoping to garner an audience for The Best Man Holiday from those movie lovers who loved the original movie and cast which included Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Nia Long, Regina Hall and Sanaa Lathan.

In Good Deeds Tyler Perry plays a man of few words who appears to carry a heavy load. Reluctantly and by obligation he has to bear the responsibility of running his family's business having had to step into his father's shoes. He does all the right things, says all the right things, has the right girlfriend. Everything she be copasetic in his world. But it's only satisfactory on a superficial level. Beyond the romantic story line, it's also a story about revealing your true self.
