ABOUT TIME!!! LUPITA NYONG’O is People’s World’s MOST Beautiful

 

LUPITA NYONG'O IS PEOPLE'S WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!
LUPITA NYONG’O IS PEOPLE’S WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!

SHE BAD in the most fabulous way!!! Waking up to the best news ever!!! I am so proud of all of Lupita’s accomplishments, she is truly a blessing for Black Little Girls and Black Women EVERYWHERE!!! 

I know first hand, how hard it is growing up in a world, where White is right and Light Skin is the next best thing. In my life, I’ve dealt w/ not fitting in because of my skin color, being called nigger and more. But, I swear moments like this, make it all worth it.

My mother, Charko is the Founder of Charko’s Vocational Education School of Fashion & Fitness Agency…Seattle’s FIRST Black Modeling School. I heard the painful stories of her being told, she could never become a model, because she was “Too Black”, “Lips Too Full” and “Hips Too Big”, yet she was determined to make it happen. I have always admired her tenacity and strength. She stayed rockin that succulent Dark Chocolate Skin w/ so much confidence, I vowed to be just like her.

It’s crazy, you don’t set out to be a role model, it just happens 🙂

PEOPLE you got it right this time!!!

Check out Lupita’s interview w/ People Magazine Here:

She may have won an Oscar for her role as the slave Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave and recently landed a contract with Lancôme Paris, but Lupita Nyong’o

“never dreamed” she would be touted as “Most Beautiful” for all the world to see.

“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.” 

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong’o first equated beauty with what she saw on television: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair,” she says. “Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, “always said I was beautiful,” Nyong’o adds. “And I finally believed her at some point.” 

As a teen, Nyong’o dyed her hair every color – except blonde – and even went as far as shaving her head bald. “It was very strange and very cold!” she says, laughing.

“It was scary but I like to dare myself.” 

Now she says the best compliments are “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” she adds. “And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.” 

JUST FAB!!!
JUST FAB!!!

Past covers have included, Halle Berry (1st Black Woman to become People’s Most Beautiful Woman), Beyonce and Denzel Washington.

LOSE to WIN: A Battle I Know Too Well! Fantasia Performs Live on American Idol!

Fantasia Performs New Hit Single "Lose to Win" on American Idol.

Watching Fantasia stand in the very spot she started from, riddled with emotion, I started crying uncontrollable tears. See I know first hand what it’s like to lose, with no winning in sight. For me, this performance was a holy ghost takeover. With bitter sweet chills, bottom lip trembles, magnified over the airways healing so many young girls who may have never experience this kind of heartbreak, but now have hope that they can survive one. Plus, healing the mature woman as well, who knows exactly the name of the man who these lyrics apply to. Who she lost herself to. Who she’s fighting to take her power back from, now in this very moment.

Young Aretha I call her (Fantasia), still so very vulnerable, humble and approachable.  I only wish I could’ve heard from you last night. I can see the blessed energy running through you, and I understand why you couldn’t say anything after that spiritual fight. I’m sure you’ve performed that song countless times. On TV Shows globally, but I think maybe because you were full circle, standing on the stage that launch your dynamic career, GOD took over and you left everything on the stage.

You’ve had an amazing walk in life. Now you have a wonderful and joyful journey ahead of you. Unbeknownst, you’re taking me with you. You truly undressed this pretty picture I created, and reminded me I still have some healing to do. I sincerely thank you for that. I will continue to pray for your greatness, your peace, to accompany you even whenever you feel the pressures of mass media and unforgivable press. The industry is brutal, but what you have surpasses all things superficial. I see the GOD in you. Let your light shine girlfriend!!!

Many Blessings!
