One of my favorite movie lines comes courtesy of the scene in ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ when Ike’s original main squeeze Lorraine rouses a slumbering Tina with a loaded gun.
Disheveled like shit, Lorraine coldly reassures young Anna Mae Bullock that she has no plans of shooting her though her actions could be perceived as the opposite. “You ain’t even worth the bullet,” she says before shuffling out of the room like a zombie on stilts to pull the ultimate stunt: a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere: the VMA’s wasn’t even worth the bullet. I’m sure Willow could agree to some extent.
