from @katyperry I don’t know when a soul enters a new vehicle but if there is an afterlife where there’s a waiting room of the coming and going my mind wonders if the soul that is waiting to come into my world is getting a kiss on the forehead from my sweet Grandma that departed this earth yesterday. My heart hopes so.
If she is able to speak with the soul in waiting the conversation would probably include “are sure you wanna pick this wild group?!” There would most definitely be some sarcasm, a witty quip or two… tbh grandma probably had a glass of her favorite blush wine ready upon arrival to this afterlife… and a most fashionable look, jewels included, naturally.
A lot of what I am is because of my father… and he is because of her. She started it all, as she used to remind us and I’m so grateful she did.
Family… is there to show us what love can be… sometimes that journey of finding the love is tough to get to AND through but if you can open your heart and let the light lead the way you will find that incomparable love.
Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter. She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamstress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas.
She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas. She gave me crisp dollar bills in hallmark cards, she let us eat her favorite almond cookies from the 99 cent store while we asked questions about the different fans she had on display on her walls. She was a wonderful grandma and I will forever carry some of her in me.
When my whit comes out, that’s Ann.
When my authenticity comes out, that’s Ann.
When my stubbornness comes out, hell, that’s Ann.
When my fighter spirit comes out, that’s Ann.
When my style comes out, that’s Ann.
May she rest in deep peace and kiss the forehead of the soul to come and let them know everything is gonna be OK, especially now that they have gained an angel to look over them ♥️♠️
Make that money black girl.. Secure that bag black girl…
Jeannie Mai and her black side have been in such love for years, and then now finally with a black man, she is finally complete. Behind her man and riding a bike with him is just about enough street credibility we can see for the day. She looks happy, and building her Black side. It made me smile and her Asian side has been swallowed for sure, and we are here for it. Valentine is so simple for them, and incredibly sexy if you ask me.

Reposted from @symplysimi So surreal.
I’m actually embarrassed to post this video for a couple reasons 🙈. I don’t know how to process this kind of attention. Also, I didn’t expect anything close to this level of love. I’m grateful for it. I thank God for it.
Thank you Sierra Leone. I don’t take it for granted 💜💜 Come out tomorrow. Let’s have a great time my Salone people ☺️☺️🇸🇱🇸🇱
from @keke I be trying not to bother folks ya know. But JOHN AMOS, I had to get a photo 😭 — for my entire family. From “Good Times” to “Roots” to “Coming To America” and SO MUCH MORE! LEGEND! He was so kind and kept calling me “young lady” 🤣😍
from @taylorswift I’m proud to extend my partnership with Lucian Grainge and the Universal Music family by signing with Universal Music Publishing Group, and for the opportunity to work with Jody Gerson, the first woman to run a major music publishing company.
Jody is an advocate for women’s empowerment and one of the most-respected and accomplished industry leaders. Troy Tomlinson has been an amazing part of my team for over half my life and a passionate torchbearer for songwriters. It’s an honor to get to work with such an incredible team, especially when it comes to my favorite thing in the world: songwriting. 🎶😄 & swipe photos to see one of my other fav things: a fluffy floofy cat.
The hip work on Shakira is something something we have to be proud of. This mother of two has kept her petite agile self this whole time in the entertainment . While finally sharing a Superbowl halftime stage with her Latina sister Jlo, both women are putting teenagers to shame with their body work, despite both being above 40. These girls did me proud.
Reposted from @nytimes Shakira and Jennifer Lopez were Latina superwomen in their sparkling Super Bowl halftime show. They sang, shimmied and thoroughly outshone the brief appearances by their guests, Bad Bunny and J Balvin, both reggaeton stars. “The show was a no-nonsense affirmation of Latin pride and cultural diversity in a political climate where immigrants and American Latinos have been widely demonized,” writes Jon Pareles, our chief pop music critic.

from @americaferrera Soooooooo hard to workout through the nausea & exhaustion of my first trimester!!! I would walk into the gym and nap for 10 minutes on the massage table before I started. Some weeks I’d only muster 1 workout or I’d miss the week entirely, but I refused to feel like I had failed.
Through this pregnancy I’m equally committed to feeling strong AND being kind to myself. As you start your 2020 workout resolutions, be kind to yourself.
Celebrate your intentions and meet yourself where you’re at with compassion for everything you’re asking of yourself. Go get it! Thanks @grantrobertsfit for letting me nap between sets. #firsttrimester – #regrann
After being pulled out if retirement by Meghan Trainor, Nicki Minaj, whom every one thought was probably hibernating due to a pregnancy, was hit as chilly when we went right back to posting in her Instagram page with her Mr. Petty Ken.
Barbie found her Ken, and we are here for it. With a slimmer belly and a wider hip, Nicki is piling up in layers the PDA from herself and her man Ken.
while many have shared their tribute to Kobe Bryant days ago, she is doing hers now, after Lakers organised an event to honour the longlasting memory of Kobe in the Lakers so far.
She took a photo as prepared by Lakers with all the seats wearing a number 24 jersey except for the seat reserved to honour the memories of Kobe’s late 13 year old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant. With her Mamba number 2 jersey seat right beside that of her Dad.
RIP to them all, even as the world continues in their absence,we seek the enabling hands and face of God in granting all four families the fortitude to bear such devastating loss.
from @nickiminaj 🙏🏾 We will always love you, Kobe. May God grant your wife & family peace, strength and understanding. You were a star among stars. An icon among icons. The best even in the midst of the best. You supported artists, athletes, children… You made us proud. You shined. You did it. You win. You can rest now, King. 💛
They say it’s funny when you are dead how people start to listen. They have definitely been listening to Nipsey.
when people pass on, more people will be trying to find out about them, and have a piece of their legacy.
After almost a year of dying, Nipsey’s page posts for the very first time, and it is to celebrate the speedy sale of his songs that have now been over 6miloion certified sales. Very Happ for Lauren and the kids, and congratulations to the one and only Nipsey Hussle.
from @mariahlynnboss I usually don’t do this but I want to talk about this because it’s been bothering me for a while now. Yes my little sister is black, Spanish and white… so is my nephew but I never claim to be anything I’m not! yes I’m raising my baby sister and definitely not to think like this.
I teach her that all people are beautiful and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors buy we all bleed the same color. We all feel pain, we all laugh, cry because we are all human.
I teach her to be kind to all and tell her that no matter what anyone ever tells her in life she is my flawless princess. For those of you who think or say “I’m trying to black” or “trying to be something I’m not” your wrong I’m being exactly who I am and Icelynn is my biggest blessing. – #regrann
Happy beautiful birthday Dove. You are a friend beautifully talented woman now, and it is nothing short of beautiful.
from @dovecameron only photo evidence of an UNbelievable birthday of adventure & surprises orchestrated by this earth angel. 17 hours of cake, crepes, balloons, flowers, water sports on a private boat/lake, arcades, pizza, ice cream, a whole laser tag course to ourselves (surprising me with loads of my friends/family, some of which i hadn’t seen in a year or more, all there to laser tag🥺 cause i fucking love it) finishing the day at my favorite little (secret) late night cafe for apple cider & pool. drove me all over LA, keeping me in the dark until the very last min, organized to the very last detail. i mean, whatta guy. what i ever did to deserve this kinda love, i’ll spend my whole life wondering
from @lizzobeeating This decade is off to a soul shaking start. These extreme highs and lows are like a rollercoaster and we are all strapped in, helplessly waiting for the next loop. I can’t help but to feel connected to everyone… can you? From what I’ve seen lately—the jokes, the memes, the grieving, the hopelessness as our planet heads to a fever— it’s like we’re all crying out hoping somebody hears us. I pray you feel seen and I pray your voice is heard because that’s precisely the tool we need if we’re going to make it through this. It’s time to speak up but most importantly show up. Our collective heavy hearts are searching for the light in this world.. it’s there, but we have to march through the darkness to reach it. Every act of love is an act of defiance to hate. How will you love today?
from @lizzobeeating 2009 was the year my daddy died.
2009 was the year I lived in my car and cried myself to sleep on thanksgiving.
2009 I was a girl in Houston Texas with no plan, no hope, no will to carry on.
2019 is the year my album and song went number 1.
2019 is the year I told my mama ‘I can buy you a house’. 2019 I am a woman with a 20/20 vision of the future.
Anything can happen in a decade.
Tomorrow is the beginning of your anything.
Thanks for the ride 2019. Here we go 2020!
Reposted from @lizzobeeating “I’ve been doing positive music for a long-ass time. Then the culture changed. There were a lot of things that weren’t popular but existed, like body positivity, which at first was a form of protest for fat bodies and black women and has now become a trendy, commercialized thing. Now I’ve seen it reach the mainstream. Suddenly I’m mainstream! How could we have guessed something like this would happen when we’ve never seen anything like this before?” – story for @time by Sam Irby – #regrann
