Before this weekend, I never really paid very much attention to Rebel Wilson.
This time last week, I was in New Orleans for Panama’s bachelor party weekend. I arrived Friday afternoon, and after the fellas already in New Orleans returned from the plantation tour, we gathered in Panama’s hotel room to kick it and determine our plans for the night. The TV happened to be on, and Girls Trip…
“Tonight’s honorees represent our radiance and our royalty … Thank you all for showing the world how bright we shine and how hard we rock,” said Black Girls Rock! founder Beverly Bond, speaking to the audience at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center during the Black Girls Rock! Awards, which aired on BET on Sunday…
The ceremony won’t be televised until Sept. 9, but on Sunday night at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, N.J., black girl magic was on full display as an array of our established and future icons hit the red carpet for Black Girls Rock! 2018.
Growing up 55 shades of gay in the ’90s, there were not a lot of places for a young whippersnapper like me to draw inspiration from what life could be like as an adult.
The shenanigans the Flossy Posse got into at the Essence Festival in New Orleans last year are legendary, so how will they up the ante for their next Girls Trip?
I was watching Set It Off the other day because there’s never not a good time to watch Set It Off. Watching Vivica, Jada, Kimberly Elise (looking as homely as they could possibly make her) and Queen Latifah rob banks and be overly dramatic is one of my favorite pastimes.
The only Queen I acknowledge is Latifah.
Queen Latifah’s mom, Rita Owens, died Wednesday after a 10-year battle with heart disease, the legendary rapper and actress said.
This story is just too juicy: Authorities say that a young black woman has robbed at least nine banks à la Set It Off-style, and now the federales are in hot pursuit.
Mama, we made it! Our internet-streaming-service dreams have finally come true. Living Single, the groundbreaking ’90s television show starring Queen Latifah, will begin streaming on Hulu on Thursday.
Since leaving the air 20 years ago today, Jan. 1, Living Single continues to resonate in the hearts of loyal fans. Its legacy alone has dismissed critics (i.e., Newsweek’s 1993 article with its “booty-shaking sugar mamas” comment), paving the way for shows like Insecure, and still reigns as a beloved fixture of black…
When I was perusing the list of new-release albums from this past Oct. 13, it dawned on me after some time that three of the artists—Wu-Tang, Camp Lo and Krayzie Bone (with his group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony)—all released albums that I absolutely loved exactly 20 years ago.
It has been 1,278 days since the residents of Flint, Mich., had clean water flowing through their pipes. The problem has still not been fully resolved, and government infighting between the city and state has led to more red tape and more delays in finding a permanent, clean water source for the city.
The bonds between black women are not something you can watch on reality-TV shows or easily catch on any TV shows right now, except maybe Insecure. (Shoutout to Issa and Molly!) Black women’s friendship is more than boozy brunches, epic catfights and screaming “Yasss Queen” to one another. I mean, don’t get me…
In the heavily anticipated movie Girls Trip, one of the stars of the movie, Regina Hall, plays Ryan Pierce, a strong black woman who’s created a conception of her life as the one who “has it all.” We quickly learn that Ryan’s fantasy life is a fantasy even to her. Without spoiling anything (because you should…
In news from the “Why weren’t we told this before?” section, Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Betsy Brandt and Marin Ireland are all set to star in the upcoming Lifetime original movie Flint, based on the Michigan city’s lead-contaminated-water crisis.
Long live the Queen! Long live the Queen!
Who run the world? Girls.
Let’s go down memory lane for a bit.
