I'm Still In The Fight!

One day I’m going to write a book and tell you about all the crap that goes on behind the scenes in my life. Good God almighty, you won't believe some of the things I have to deal with. You would think that by now I wouldn’t have to fight to release a movie... but I do. Everything is a fight. I mean everything. By the time the movie comes out I’m so exhausted from the fight that it’s hard to unwind and take it all in.

Hear me good when I say this to you, I never take for granted that you are going to come out and see my films. Never. I know that you have a lot of choices and a lot of other things you can do with your time and money, so all I can tell you is that I’m so glad that you do and that you have been with me from the beginning. This means the world to me. It really does. That is where I get my rewards, knowing that you are with me. I want you to know that I, and everybody that works at TPS and their families, appreciate it so much.

With that said, MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION opens Friday, June 29th. That’s tomorrow. Just to let you know where this idea came from... I was sitting at dinner with a friend and I said to them, “the punishment for Bernie Madoff should have been that he had to move in with Madea." Isn’t the thought of that funny? Light bulbs went off in my head, so I wrote THE FUNNIEST Madea movie I’ve ever written. You’ll see! This movie is hilarious. It’s nonstop laughter. I sure hope you have plans to go out and take your family, friends, social and church groups to see MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION this weekend. The first weekend is so important. That’s how you’re judged in Hollywood. And that is how you can help me fight, by showing up at the movie theater this weekend.

I sure hope you still have my back… I need your help to win this fight.

I’ll be on Facebook, Twitter and tylerperry.com’s message board reading your comments.

Talk soon,

    Hi Tyler. For some reason I feel that this is the place to connect with you. I have left a few messages on your Online Family site, recent #'s and . However, thank you for allowing me the grace to leave another message here. I AM an author and publisher of a trilogy of inspirational and spiritual children's books that are ready to be turned into an animated feature film/s. I have chosen to form my own animation company, because every thing we do will benefit children all around the world. I simply want to have the chance...the Divine opportunity...to send you a published copy of my first book and an outline of the remaining 2-6 books that will complete the series. I believe you will understand on a soul level the impact they WILL have on the world. I can't think of anything else right now to say but THANK YOU. Shine On! Diane

    Wow I didn't realize what all you go through to be a blessing to us all. It's funny how God will choose someone to be a blessing for his kingdom, and to be able to reach souls in a way that most would have never thought, and that stinking Devil is right there trying to make things difficult and discourage us. Im going to share something with you that my pastor says quite often "God never said it was going to be easy, but he did say he would go with you". Your in Gods will in this hour right now; he needs to be able to use your two hands to win his lost. He didn't bring you this far to leave you. Keep your eyes on Jesus knowing that nothing is impossible to them that believe. God made this world and everything in it, and can't no man or Devil stop his plan; no matter how you feel at times instead of feeling overwhelmed look to Jesus and just start thanking him for all he has done and is doing in your life, and even send up some blood praises and send that stinking Devil on his way because he can't stand it when we use the blood in all faith. Your in my prayers and atleast now I know when your getting ready to do a movie or a play I'll be praying and asking God to show you favor, and move in a way that you can say he did it. I love you and I'm praying for you.:-)

    Tyler, you may be in a fight, you have something to fight with and fight for. With all the success you've had you have got to know you are not alone. Just reflect on all the miracles that you experienced to get where you are. The power that got you here will keep you here. Be blessed beloved!

    God keeps telling us to keep fighting the good fight because the dark side wants to get in a tug-of-war with us and try and defeat the light. Ahhh...but we who are believers know that the Light ALWAYS prevails! I just posted a message to you on your message board # and # . Earlier postings than these I'll never find! I want to walk the red carpet with you and your bff's...Oprah and Gayle in LA? How about a Silicon Valley/San Jose premiere? I have a lot of contacts here and we could rock the red carpet and bring Madea Madness here! :) Love you, your staff and all the joy you bring to humanity. Diane
