It’s the last day of 2015, and I’m doing a look back at the year. I’ve already done my 2015 highlights chronicling my epic year and I could not let it pass without posting my top 10 pieces. I have a lot of fun writing here because I am able to cover all types of topics in pop culture, from TV to movies to race to travel to shenanigans. From doling our side-eyes to writing sternly-worded letters to recapping my favorite shows. And your comments give me everything I NEED.
Below are the top AwesomelyLuvvie.com posts of 2015. Read them if you missed, and share the ones that were your favorites!
A fan took to Instagram to cuss out Chris Brown when the tour he was going on with Trey Songz was postponed because he had to do court-mandated community service. She was so in her feelings and she let Christopher know he be fucking up.
Some artist created a portrait of Bobby Jindal that looked like Ray Romano and he temporarily hung it in the Governor’s mansion til his real one was completed. I got a light skinned friend look like Bobby Jindal. Got a dark skin friend look like Bobby Jindal.
An article on Deadline questioned whether TV is getting too “ethnic” and wondered if white people were starting to be snubbed for roles. It was the type of boldness that comes with the privilege of being white, entitled and greedy, and they needed to get this clapback.
Dr. Michael Eric Dyson wrote a 10,000 epic takedown of Cornel West that was titled “The Ghost of Cornel West.“ It was a literary Lipton Factory, with tea spilled. I’m just here for the shade and there was an Amazon forest of it in that piece.
Step Away From the Jersey Onesies, Everyone (May 2015)
Beyonce is an influencer in every way so anything she wears becomes a trend. When I saw her rocking a Chicago Bulls Leotard and looking damb good in it, I facepalmed. She has opened the Pandora’s Box of Tacky for impressionable people everywhere.
Everything is so absurd that a white woman catfished herself and made folks believe she was a Black woman, and she ended up running an NAACP chapter in Spokane. “The problem is that she’s trying to squeeze her white square peg into a black circle.”
Bishop Eddie Long of the shady dealings had an all-white pordee (because it is a required Black folks gathering). He took a picture with 2 other fellas at the shindig and their tight ass alphets led us into an epic roast session.
Regina, Uzo, Viola and The Blackest Emmy Awards Ever (September 2015)
Not only were Black people nominated for more Emmy Awards than ever (like 25), more walked away with them too. That include Regina King, Uzo Aduba and Viola Davis. I really did holler myself into a sore throat watching that show.
About that EBONY Magazine Cover and the Cosby Conundrum (October 2015)
EBONY dropped the mic on everyone when they released the cover of their November 2015 issue. It is a cover made to look like a cracked picture, featuring the Huxtables. The crack starts on the face of Heathcliff, which is mostly covered because of it, and it spreads throughout, but everyone else’s face is still visible.
Jermaine Jackson’s New Hairline Has Me Upset (December 2015)
Because Joe and Katherine’s son decided he wanted to paint his hairline to resemble a crucifix and it made my underarms itch. I think he’s trolling us all.
