Buss It, Buss It: These Are The Best Celeb #Bussit Challenges On The Internet

Just when we think it's over, another celeb drops their version, and we're talking about it alllllll over again.

Culture & Entertainment

Over the past two weeks or so, our timelines have been blessed, and filled to the brim, with a plethora of the 'Buss It' challenges. If you're unfamiliar, the latest trend is a nod to how magical black women are (in case there was ever a moment that you second-guessed it). The premise of the challenge is simple: set to the tune of Erica Banks' "Buss It", you open the video by showing off what you look like when not dolled up, and when the beat drops or changes, then so do you--all transitioned to a new fly AF queen, showing off your best Megan Thee Stallion knee game.

I mean, no lie, this one is everything, like I absolutely cannot get tired of seeing the creativity, the beauty, and so much more. And the best part is just when we think it's over, another celeb drops (pun intended) their version, and before long, we're talking about it alllllll over again.

Like when Chloe Bailey broke the World Wide Web:

Chloe Bailey stepped on the scene with her version to retire them all.

Bailey, is one half of the singing duo, Chloe x Halle, has had a very successful career over the last couple of years. They started by taking minor roles in films and now they are Grammy-nominated singers, songwriters, and actresses. The two entered the industry as kids and since, have worked to shed their child-like image, emerging as flourishing women. The two have been attached to the hip their entire careers, even having joint social media accounts the entire time. That was until Chloe Bailey got her own account and shut shit down.

And Miss Jackson represented for her man:

She loved it so much that she created two versions, each equally making bae--who had to clear the sample for the song to even exist--proud.

Jackie Aina came through with her Beyonce Fan and all:

Can I just say, black women in yellow is supreme?

And Jordyn Woods had us question why we would even try:

To which her boo replied, "God is good."

Traci Steele's looked a lot like my attempt:

Samesies.

And Tracee Ellis Ross too:

We loved seeing Gabrielle Union show off the natural her:

And Reginae with the body suit:

*dusts off knees*

In the end, no matter how long this challenge sticks around, knowing that we drive pop culture in this way, is something I will never get over. #bussit

TW: This article may contain mentions of suicide and self-harm.

In early 2022, the world felt like it slowed down a bit as people digested the shocking news of beauty pageant queen Cheslie Kryst, who died by suicide. When you scroll through her Instagram, the photos she had posted only weeks before her death were images of her smiling, looking happy, and being carefree. You can see photos of her working, being in front of the camera, and doing what I imagine was her norm. These pictures and videos, however, began to spark a conversation among Black women who knew too well that feeling like you're carrying the world on your shoulders and forcing yourself to smile through it all to hide the pain.

Ironically enough—considering the way the word begins—the love-hate relationship that we have with menstruation is comparable to the way in which we navigate the world of men. It’s very much “can’t live with it, can’t live without it” vibes when it comes to women and their cycles. But the older I get, the more I learn to hate that time of the month a little less. A lot of my learning to embrace my period has come with learning the fun, interesting, and “witchy” stuff while discovering more natural, in-tune ways of minimizing the pain in my ass (those cramps know no bounds) amongst other places.

SZA is no stranger to discussing her mental health struggles and her experiences with anxiety. In 2021, the “Good Days” singer tweeted about having “debilitating anxiety” that causes her to shield away from the public. Unfortunately, she still has those same struggles today and opened up about it during Community Voices 100th episode for Mental Health Awareness Month. While SZA enjoys making music, she’s not a fan of the spotlight, which may be surprising to many.

It's great to check a few of the tried-and-true popular U.S. and global locales off your travel wish list, but it's even better to add a few other spots that are not quite as overpopulated with tourists. You can create a few unique memories and get those IG moments that don't seem so overdone or cliche while exploring a different part of a country.

For some time now, the Human Design System has been picking up mainstream traction! And like so many other explorative journeys, the concept of Human Design took off via social media. Similar to Astrology, Human Design requires your birth time and date, and it also provides a map of sorts to help you navigate this world with purpose while being uniquely you (and tapping into your purpose). In fact, if you desire, the information can work simultaneously with Astrology.
