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,

    Tyler you started this journey on your own terms and with God at your back. Why is the focus now on Hollywood and the rules they've set? It is always a fight when we do it the world's way. God promises when we rest in Him, we will have the victory. Jesus already fought for us and won. It is the funniest trailer I've seen for your movies so wishing you well. Eyes on Jesus, not the box office.

    Dear Tyler, Always remember that "The battle is not yours, but God's" As His beloved children, He promises that He'll be our Vindicator. "Keep the Faith!" and know that there is Power in Praise... "The devil is a Liar!" so Let's Celebrate the Victory! 2 Chronicles 20:15; Romans 12:19; 2 Timothy 4:7; John 8:44; Judges 7:20

    Even in good old Africa we have your back and cant wait for your latest movie to come our way, even if it's few months later. You'll be surprised by what a huge following Madea has this end - anyone who visits me for more than 2 nights leavs my home having at least learnt to love either TP Or good old Madea
