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 are fighting a good fight. Long as we deal with the human race, people will talk. You have done great things, and you will continue to do so. God will truly guide you through. Be blessed.

    Hi, Tyler! I read your email, & its ridiculous that u have 2 fight like that! But, as the saying goes, anything worth having is worth fighting for! Just hold your head up & keep the faith! We got your back & most of all so does God! bishop Jones always says, "if u don't have any hateers, then you're not anointed" we know u have plenty of haters, so guess what-you must be very anointed! God won't put more on you than u can bare! So hang in there bro & know when you're at the end of your rope God is right there with an extension of more rope! God bless & keep u!

    Mr Perry...You have been assigned to infiltrate the Entertainment System! Do not allow those with small mindsets to "box" you in. We are called to reach the world, so I thank God for opening the doors of favor, expansion & elevation for you, and your courage, tenacity and boldness to follow the Holy Spirit's leading to walk through them. News flash....Heaven does not have segregated neighborhoods!

Keep fighting, your fans will stand behind you. I will be in the movies over the weekend to show some support on your new movie "MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION". I wish you the best in all your projects. Also, please view my video submission (I Will Survive). I know you will enjoy it. I was one of the people posting comments to work with you. I know in my heart this is my true calling!

    Hey Tyler I was on your audition list, but O'coarse I didn't get enough votes to win. Some of the competition had as much as 120.000 and 15,000 vote Even though I was the best at the age of 47yrs old God knows I don't know that many people and I darn sure don't have that many friends to vote for me. LOL . If you get a chance check it out on Youtube- (Cudderrhead) Title : You told Harpo to beat me. I was good . Anyway I said that to say (in my Sofia voice)" All my life I had to fight"! I am still fighting. Tyler keep your head up and keep doing what you are doing. You are the head and not the tail, you are victorious , the battle is not yours its The Lord. God got your back and so do I. Be Blessed and I can't wait to see Madea's witness protection. Love you , Caolyn

    God Bless You Tyler, I do know what it's like to fight the good fight of Faith. Not in the same arena that you're in, but in my own little boxing ring. The Greatest thing you can do to stump on the devil's head is to know that God has already given you the Victory no matter what you face in life. There is no Victory without a battle, Count it all Joy, by Faith it's already yours. If you can judge by all these comments,you have a lot of Prayer Warriors praying for you and supporting you. I know this movie is another Great Masterpiece and it'll earn top rating in the box office. Take a bow it's all in the makings. Be "Blessed" Sincerely Ruth.
