This was a grand year for me and more people than ever read my words. My traffic hit many milestones and December 2014 is my most-read month EVER. I totally appreciate all the reads and shares and comments. In fact, the comments on my posts are my favorite things about writing. Seriously. Y’all are EVERYTHING.
It’s been so fun covering all things pop culture, from TV to movies to race to travel and randomness.
I’m doing a look back at the year and below are the top AwesomelyLuvvie.com posts of 2014. Read them if you missed, and share the ones that were your favorites.
Jermaine Jackson’s hair is the 8th wonder of the world. No one knows what it’s truly made up. We guess that it might be tar. Or an homage to the BP oil spill.
A bride and her bridesmaids entertain the groom and his groomsmen at a wedding reception with a sexy flexy and janky routine to “Drunk in Love.” Bless all their hearts.
Every time a Black person is beaten or killed senselessly by a cop or vigilante, there are certain things we can predict to happen. And this cycle is just all too common.
Raven Symone did an interview with Oprah and said “I’m American and that is colorless.” This sternly-worded letter was earned. She later went on to “clarify” her statements. Chile, I guess.
Lena Dunham is weird. That’s her thing. And in her memoir, she talks about some incidents from her childhood involving her younger sister that disturbed some people. I talk about how Lena really seems to lack boundaries.
I wrote Lupita Nyong’o a love letter because she is so fierce and she is everything. Lupita herself ended up reading this letter and tweeted me to say she loved it (and yes, it was really her. She put her initials at the end of the tweet). I LIVE.
I love how old people have so few dambs to give. Aretha Franklin’s performance of “Rolling in the Deep” was very eventful because Whitney’s mama was the backup singer who refused to sing. or sway. This video might be my fave thing about 2014.
Renee Zellweger stepped unto a red carpet and people could barely recognize her. She went and go a new face (NEW not BAD) and everyone was taken aback by it. But, we were all told to stop “bullying” her. Oh ok.
Really (supposedly) smart people keep passing around links of fake news from terrible satire websites thinking they’re real. Jeebs be the fence of discernment around our proverbial sense houses because we are outchea failing at media literacy.
Because Devante Swing went to the Soul Train Awards rocking the world’s GRINCHEST MOST STINGY struggle ponytail. His hair tried to tell him “No. I can’t. I’m unable to can” but he wasn’t tryna hear it. Lawd.
