Regina King Supporting Andra Day's Golden Globe Win Is Peak Black Girl Magic


I'm not sure how many times I can say that we don't deserve Regina King on this here platform, but here is one more: we don't deserve her. At all. She is a whole, live goddess out here, which she has shown time and time again. And her sustainability and longevity in this game proves this to be true.

In her latest act of magical being, Ms. King set her sights on Andra Day, who is coming off a high of playing the legendary blues singer, Billie Holiday in United States vs. Billie Holiday, had just became the second Black woman in history to win the Golden Globe for 'Best Actress In A Motion Picture - Drama', and King and her dog, Cornbread, crashed her on-air interview with Access Hollywood's Scott Evans to celebrate. The rest went down in black joy history books.

I am literally tearing up right now.

Any who, the reaction was captured by the cameras, which Day uploaded to her Instagram account with the caption:

"kept tryna come up wit a caption for dis but I jus...u inspire me n ur love soooooo real! livin legend, brilliant @iamreginaking #onenightinmiami"

King, who was up for her own Golden Globe for Best Director for the movie One Night in Miami..., didn't give one damn, as she went to support, cheer, and love on, Andra. Just imagine all of the conversations between the two that caused them to celebrate this way. Love to see it!

And everyone loved it just as much as I did!

Please check on me later, guys. I am not OK. *sobs*

This may be Andra's first major role since bursting on the scene with her song, "Rise Up". But to be embraced this way by the one and only Ms. King, lets me know that we'll see her in many, MANY, more.

Congrats, Andra!

The Reality Of Living With Severe Asthma – As Told by 2 Women On Their Disease Journey

This post is in partnership with Amgen.

The seemingly simple task of taking a breath is something most of us don’t think twice about. But for people who live with severe asthma, breathing does not always come easily. Asthma, a chronic respiratory condition that inflames and narrows the airways in the lungs, affects millions of people worldwide – 5-10% of which live with severe asthma. Severe asthma is a chronic and lifelong condition that is unpredictable and can be difficult to manage. Though often invisible to the rest of the world, severe asthma is a not-so-silent companion for those who live with it, often interrupting schedules and impacting day-to-day life.

Not too long ago, someone asked me why I write about sex so much. The simple answer is I think it’s a part of my purpose, and since I believe that, I don’t question it much. Sex is something that I find to be special, sacred, wonderful, profound, incomparable, and very necessary — all of those things, not just a few. And since studying it, researching it, writing about it, and talking about it all come so naturally to me, I’m pretty sure it’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life, in some capacity. Because when something is so wonderful as sex, why wouldn’t you want to “share the wealth” on the things that you come to learn?
