Dear Lupita Nyong’o, Why Must You Slay Us So Effortlessly?

My newest celebrity crush is Lupita Nyong’o and if you have to ask me why, then we have nothing to talk about. I’m here to write her a love letter, because she is everything. I’m not even here to talk about her performance in 12 Years a Slave. No. I’m …

Tina Fey’s Prayer For Her Daughter is Hilarity

I am a HUGE fan of Tina Fey. She’s one of my sheroes (along with her BFF Amy Poehler). I wanna be their third wheel so bad. They’re the main reason I even feel like watching the Golden Globe Awards tonight. Last year, I read Tina’s book Bossypants and it’s …

The Greatest Troublemaker for Peace: Nelson Mandela’s Legacy

Earlier this week, I wrote about how Yoruba people take names so seriously because we think it can determine your life’s path. As we honor the memory of the late, GREAT Nelson Mandela, I reflect on his middle name “Rolihlahla,” which is Xhosa for “troublemaker.” President Mandela was the troublemaker …

#KanyeJobTitles is Twitter’s Latest (and Hilarious) Roast

Kanye West being on this media blitz for his Yeezus album and tour has been a gift and a curse. It’s a gift because there’s no shortage of material from Kanye’s shenanigans (like when he was on Jimmy Kimmel), and curse because of the same reason. No one loves Kanye …
