IMPERFECT VAULT 2012 -- Actress Paula Patton is an actress to watch. Patton's delivery in taking on various characters from complex to character's masses truly get puts her in position to be a part of some great scripts and movies. Since coming upon the scene Patton has much range for an actress of the times. Since the passing of ICON Whitney Houston in February, there has been talk about many actresses wanting to play the role of the Diva who's life in the personal and professional was very complex. As industry pros, we do know there will be various interpretations in film about Whitney.
Should there be a green light for the Big Screen, Paula Patton should take on the leading role. 1021 has championed this strong suggestions for three plus years. THE REASONING: Clearing your mind of skin color comparisons shows less ignorance, which we've seen on the various blogs from people saying why Patton should not even be considered. If your decision is for this factor we are pretty sure you aren't in the industry. When Paula Patton starred in Idlewild alongside rapper Big Boi aka Antwan Patton and Andre' 3000, it was this very film that gave 1021 the 'ah ha' moment. Not only does she resemble Whitney Houston, her acting had a commanding presence along with the film Precious. This presence is needed for the many sides of Whitney Houston persona publicly/professionally/privately.
Other similarities is Paula Patton's natural speaking raspy voice similar to the transitioned Diva Whitney Elizabeth Houston and the uncanny mannerisms of her bright personality that could take on the various moments of Whitney when seen in the infamous interviews with Walters, Sawyer, Winfrey and more. While it does takes more than the resemblance factor, in 1021's opinion, Patton ineed has more.
THE IMPERFECT VAULT will continue to keep checking for more of Paula Patton's various works. Definitely she is a shining star to continue watching. More Paula Pattion continues through Imperfect Vault.

The Gulabi Gang are women activists from India who wear pink saris, founded in 2006 by Sampat Pal Devi. The Gulabi Gang are labeled as vigilantes, something Western Women and women globally have been called when fighting for rights and injustice. Sampat Pal Devi, founder is no stranger to injustice ( top right ), abuse of women and being a child bride.
HBO Documentaries presented 'Pink Saris'. The Documentary gave an up close and personal look at the abuse, how the Gulabi Gang help countless women in situations that seem very horrid to those not affected. Devis is no passive woman but a woman with feeling, pride, a leader that at times like most leaders can get exasperated. Chapters are growing globally. Forced into a child marriage, Devi is less of an odd card but a liberating woman who helps take care of her older husband and their five children while living apart with another man, taking no 'hold back' from him. Equality - this is what women have been fighting for years -GLOBALLY. -Bebe Davis
CONSCIOUS CONNECTION CONTINUES Pink Saris...
As much as Women have gained, there is more to gain. Enlightenment will always be the course activists take for those very comfortable living a life that oprresses them. They've been conditioned to live an oppressed life and do so many with pride. The activist is seen as the enemy. The activist is seen as the one who is lost because in the oppressed world their form of LOVE, MATERIALISTIC rewards, THE NEEDY traits MUST BE FULFILLED. SEX mixed in with countless circumstances driving them to stay in their oppressed situation. Not many leave their circumstances alive but the ones that do find a family like atmosphere with those who help them turn it all around - even with the group Gulabi Gang. The saying' the poor will always be with you', is true. Same goes for whores/prostitutes, mistresses, side chicks, however you want to label them. It is a never-ending fight but many continue to enlightened. In the Western World we witness how many feed into these patterns of oppression. It makes one wonder about that famous slogan; Have we come a long way baby? From the reality shows potraying women in 2012 as angry engaging in fights as if on a playground where maturity and dignity hasn't fully set in or will ever set in. Impressionable minds are viewing. Are you a part of the problem or part of the solution? While we aren't fighting all the tribulations like the Gulabi Gang and their fearless leader, there are many tribulations women are facing. Our worse enemy is our gender right now as we are being pimped and played for the mighty dollar to act a fool either on camera or off camera. If many women switched roles /cultures and such we'd see more respect for what we do have as freedoms/choices than never before. If you haven't seen the documentary of PINK SARIS, make it a point to view this film. Director of the film Kim Longinotto.
