Another awards season, another lily white Oscars, and more awards for people who kinda deserve them. And just like we all were expecting the Oscars to be as pale as the Brady Bunch, we were also expecting Black people to have something to say about it. This year, those people happen to be Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett-Smith. These two have decided to boycott the Oscars, and are calling on Black actors in Hollywood to do the same. While I completely agree with Spike and Jada, and I think the Academy is full of sh*t, there’s one little thing we’re forgetting-Chris Rock’s Black ass is the host.
Anything that Princess Lupita is a part of, I take great interest in. And since she’s one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen, it’s only right that she’d be linked to one of the most successful beauty brands in the world–Lancome. The actress/model just announced minutes ago, that Lancome will officially be launching in Kenya today!
Oh. The Oscars. What a wonderful love/hate relationship we have. There’s so much to say, and so little time. But I am going to try and do my BEST to fit everything in, and to hopefully, be nowhere near as boring as the actual show. Here goes!
And although her presence illuminates the darkness, her skin is like chocolate ganache, her teeth are pearly white, and her personality is as radiant as the sun, I’m still running into some Lupita hate…and it’s mainly from Black men.
