We Can't Stop Staring At Chloe Bailey's Evolution On The 'Gram

She's now a badass, grown-ass woman and a force to be reckoned with — we love that for her.

Chloe Bailey

In case you ain't know, Chloe Bailey is our president. Joe Biden just ain't getting it and we can always depend on Chloe to do itttttt. The actress, record producer, singer, and songwriter has displayed the ultimate glow-up on the 'Gram and we love to see it! She created her own Instagram account on January 19, and it's safe to say we had no clue what we were missing out on. For years, we have been swooning over the dynamic duo that is Chloe x Halle with their angelic voices and superstar charisma.


When Beyonce is your mentor, the sky is only the beginning. In a unique turn of events, the sister duo decided to make separate accounts in an effort to continue blessing us with their Instagram Live sessions while Halle filmed her Disney live-action remake of The Little Mermaid in London. Ever since the self-taught musicians have been living apart, Chloe is learning more and more about herself every day. She told R29Unbothered:

"It's kind of forcing me to think and say to myself, OK, what do I really like on my own? How do I feel about this? Just with my thought process. And it's really been interesting. At first, in the beginning, it was very intimidating and scary... Because Halle and I wouldn't have done it on our own because we're each other's best friends. But I definitely think it was something necessary so that we can find ourselves individually. And for that, I'm really grateful."

One thing we are grateful for: Chloe's femininity. It is extremely empowering. The Grown-ish star broke Beyonce's internet when she joined in on the #BussItChallenge and had us all cracking our knees trying to keep up. During an interview with the LA Times she shared:

"I feel there's such power in women who truly love themselves and own who they are, whether they want to be completely covered or showing skin or whether they want to be outspoken or completely quiet. It's our right as women to choose who we want to be and how we want to be seen in this world and not be judged for it, because men can be all of those things and no one takes another look or says anything about it. I'm not really doing anything new, I'm just being myself."

Ummmm, let the church say AMEN and AMEN again!

Chloe Bailey is not the young girl we fell in love with. She's now a badass, grown-ass woman and a force to be reckoned with — we love that for her. Here's to Black women owning their power and realizing that evolution is the secret for the next step.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
