It’s about time People Magazine got it right by declaring to the world (what we already know) that Lupita Nyong’ois the ‘Most Beautiful’.
After years of of giving me a case of the Full Body Eyerolls by naming that gotdam Paltrow, JLo, or worse yet, Horseface JuliaRoberts (although, I see she still managed to flare her nostrils and swish her tail onto the cover) the editors at People came to their collective senses.
Lupita gave People Magazine a thoughtful statement about being named Most Beautiful:
“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”
Lupita wins EVERYTHING this year. She is completely flawless. Can this “honor” be given to Ms. Nyong’o each and every year until the end of days?
Oh. My. Gyaaaaah. No. Seriously. Just look at all the cool crap you get for $200 when you buy the coveted Breaking Bad Box Set. I just cannot. (And at this price, I probably WILL not…) Nevertheirregardless, let’s listen to our Beloved Creator [of BB] Vince Gilligan spell it all out for us, shall we?
First of all? Yes, and HELL YES. And that apron?? Good Lort. But it’s the extras dvd that I’m salivating over. I need to see more bloopers with Bryan and Aaron not being able to hold it together. It makes me all warm and gooey inside. (Ew.) But seriously. It does. I just want to swaddle that barrell up and carry it around like a baby.
So save yourself the hassle of those big stores, parking, throwing elbows and just order it from Amazon. For ME.
M.I.A. dropped a brand spanking new video for her latest single “Bring The Noize” yesterday, and I think it’s the perfect soundtrack for some recent news.
Last night Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worthspent 13 hours on her feet fighting the #SB5 bill that would shut down almost every abortion clinic in Texas if it had passed. During her epic filibuster, over 170,000 people tuned into watch her fight against the bill, with people online and in the rotunda of the Senate building cheering her on.
Davis was not alone of course, there was Sen. Leticia Van De Putte who challenged her male colleagues for trying to silence her and the other female representatives. “At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?“ she asked. This question, and the discussion that followed, helped to run out the clock after the Republicans decided that Davis wasn’t sticking to the topic.
So the #SB5 bill is dead, for now, and DOMA was deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court on Wednesday morning, but we still have a long way to go. A part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was declared unconstitutional, which means it’s going to be easier to enact voter suppression in some areas. This also means that Wendy Davis could lose her seat in the Senate because this ruling would effectively change the demographic composition of her district, making it harder for Black and Hispanic voters to for a sizable majority.
So keep pushing. Keep fighting. Keep voting. Keep paying paying attention and keep bringing the noise!
