Mondays are hard for me. I promise I’m trying.
On to the big news, #LEMONADE!
I doubted, but I’ve been converted thoroughly. Beyoncé is everything. Lemonade made me feel like I could take over the world. I’m used to being invisible. The brands, performers, and politicians I love hardly see me, or at least hardly openly admit to seeing me. On national television, for an hour, Beyoncé said to every black girl and woman in the world, “I see you. I am you. I am proud. You should be too.” I just can’t stop watching and listening to it.
Mashable did a fantastic breakdown of other the other wonderful Black women featured in Lemonade. I needed it.
In other big news, #GameofThrones. Quick recap:
- The. Red. Woman! What?!?!
- Jon Snow…
- Yes Theon! (A phrase I never thought I would say)
Nerdette Podcast, that I love with many loves, does a delightful recap podcast every Monday. They’re recap is much better than mine.
Last, but certainly not least, Prince made is final exit this week. I just can’t. I seriously can not say any more about him. I can not even try to do his life, his work, and his/it’s importance any justice at all.
This New Yorker Magazine cover is the best I can do.
P.S.: If you have an iPhone, I set up a Litsy account. Litsy is the child of Goodreads and Instagram. It’s great. You can find me there as Lucky_LaDee.
