Oy! What a week I’ve had this week. Thankfully, its Friday and you know what that means. I have a brand spanking new 5 Finds 4 Friday to share with you all today… Whoo Hoo!
So much has happened this week. The world took solace imagining Prince greeting Charlie Murphy with a plate of pancakes in heaven. It seems like Rosario Dawson is starring in Obsessed: Part Two (Still Obsessed), judging from the TRAILER of her new film. The newest installment of The Fantastic Beasts series has found it’s Dumbledore (Spoiler Alert: It’s Jude Law). I’m opting to mind my business about Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx. Mainly because I don’t care. Last but not least, NaturallyCurly.com is giving curly girlies a chance to win some AMAZING natural hair prizes this week. But what about them FINDS, tho?
“Thank You For Being a Fiiiiiiiend…..“
The Golden Girls. The show was practically “Shade: 101” for many of us, where we learned to throw quips like a baseball. Thanks to Hulu, I’ve had the fortune to revisit the series on demand, and it continues to be a laugh riot all these years later. Whether you consider yourself a Dorothy, a Rose, a Blanche or a Sophia, your never without an opportunity to learn to read from the best. This video compiles some of the shadiest moments from the series. Enjoy!
I Ship It….
I mean, can you blame Jay Ellis?!? If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch Chewing Gum on Netflix. Watch it. Today. I give a lot of advice, but truly this is more of an urgent demand, because your life needs the brilliant fun and humor that is Michaela Coel. And I bet you’ll be wanting to post lovey dovey videos on the ‘gram, too!!
Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie is EVERYTHING!!
I didn’t see the first film in the Thor franchise. Surprisingly, I did see the second film, thinking it was the first. This happened twice. But you can best believe that I will be seeing the latest. Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok looks awesome sauce and I’m so down for it! And it looks like I’m not the only one. Read all about it on Blavity.
Chrissy Teigen: Bonafide Superhero
@CruzanChoklate I'm really excited for you to live out your passion ❤❤❤

When I was assembling my list of Imaginary Besties last month, Chrissy Teigen was originally on the list of 10. I made the choice to cut the list and ultimately her. If only you can feel the regret I feel about that decision right now. Chrissy happened upon a tweet from Mercedes Edney, a beauty school student who was crowdfunding her tuition for school. Imagine Mercedes’ surprise when she discovered that the person who donated the money to pay for her tuition in full was Chrissy Teigen. Wow! Read all about it on Buzzfeed.
A DIFFERENT Kind of Love Letter…
Dear Idris…I love you like a humming-bird to a flower…but the writer of this show done said some ignant shit and therefore I will not be watching Guerilla…not even just to stare at you. I hope you understand. Love, Jay.
The above letter was written by good friend, pirate sistah, and blogger boo Jay of Afro Girl Shenanigans. I don’t have anything to say to Idris about this situation, but John Ridley? Who started crying because the “mean black women” hurt your widdle fee-fees? Fuck you, buddy! Read the back story of this sternly worded message (And my poorly articulated and expletive-filled one) on The Huffington Post.
Now that I’ve shared my finds…. Let’s Dish!!! Tell me which of this week’s 5 Finds 4 Friday really resonated with you. Do you have a find for this week you’d like to share? Leave it in the comments!
