Congrats to Spike repping Prince, his classic Do The Right Thing (1989) film and Michael Jordan all at the same time worship Those Air Jordan 3 Tinker are amazing.

All About Spike Lee's Symbolic Oscars Look, from 'Love' and 'Hate' Rings to His Prince Tribute https://people.com/style/..._peoplemag

Spike Lee is letting his jewelry do the talking at the Academy Awards.

The BlacKkKlansman director, 61, showed off two large knuckle rings — one emblazoned with “LOVE” and the other with “HATE” — as he walked the red carpet at the 2019 Oscars. The rings are a bit of movie history — they were important props during an iconic moment in Lee’s 1989 film Do the Right Thing.............

Director Spike Lee, nominated for several for his film 'BlacKkKlansman' – which used "Mary Don't You Weep" over the end credits – paid tribute to Prince by wearing a custom-made gold, diamond and opal necklace in the shape of the Love symbol and a purple suit.

Spike Lee on the rare Prince song in BLACKkKLANSMAN: “‘Mary Don’t You Weep,’ had been recorded on cassette in the ‘80s… My brother Prince wanted me to have it for this film. Out of nowhere it’s discovered in the back of the vaults? Nah-ah. That ain’t an accident!”

Robert Mitchum first sported the love and hate message on tattooed knuckles in the movie Night of the Hunter...

And I still question his choice of doing a documentary on BAD 25 and not on Sign O The Times 25.

Thanks for posting, purplethunder3121!! Night of the Hunter, The Bad Seed, and Cape Fear (originals) were the most attractive/scariest movies of my childhood.

I listened to a Spike Lee interview the other day and he said that the LOVE and HATE rings were inspired by Night of the Hunter. wink

Edit: PS: Just saw another, very brief red carpet interview where he mentioned Night of the Hunter again while talking about his rings.

And probably why he put them in his movie Do the Right Thing too. Go figure.

Although I LOVED BAD 25 and watched it the first night they showed it and the day after, I agree.

No artist's big night is complete these days without a mean tweet from the President.




@realDonaldTrump



Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!

It’s interesting that his love symbol necklace is closer to the symbol that Prince used in Purple Rain and various tours up to 1992 and not the more complicated version that he used for his unpronounceable name.

That's nothing new, although Lee was not mean - or racist. Artists have gotten political at the Oscars for decades.

The new part is the guy in the White House who watches TV day and night, and thinks his tweets are Presidential.

Oh please, nothing is disturbing about it, and if Spike didn't say anything, then why did the President reply? Spike, among many others took digs at the President about the wall and immigration, as usual, what show were you watching?

I was fortunate enough to attend The Grown Up Awards a couple a weeks ago with Spike as he won an Award for his latest project "Blackkklansman". I'm glad that he's STILL honoring Prince's legacy in the RIGHT WAY like I knew he would.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

Ocean, you can't be serious with your response, right?
