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 Mr Perry, just want to say that I'll definately go watch it when it comes out here. Madea is my favourite caracter wish there were more people like her in this world to smack the kids so they can stop their bad behaviour. Parents don't want to be parents anymore they want to be friends to the kids and that's just messed up. So to all the real life madeas keep doing what you doing.

    Mr. Perry, sorry but my finances will not permit me to see your movie but since I know that the Heavenly father has his hands all over you it will be awesome.but it is still nice to be thanked by a actor,writer, producer even without him getting an award. Stay in there, Shelia

    Why do I always feel a hint of manipulation everytime one of your productions will be released? I hate to say that because I love and support your work, but the sob stories you share "before" a big day for you is getting redundant.

    Dear Tyler, I don't have to remind you that GOD does not promise smooth sailing what HE does promise is a safe landing. The LORD is with you so please fear not. Your true fans will do everything in their power to get there. And buy when it comes out on dvd. Tyler,I think you should do a Medea's long lost twin except shes white, and short,kidnapped, or stolen from hospital anything. Raised in well to family. Just an idea.
