On this day 5 years ago, I met one of my heros, @whoopigoldberg. She was being honored as one of Vanity Fair's Women in Hollywood. She came onto the red carpet right after me. I froze. "There she is! There she is," I squealed to myself. "This is my moment to meet one of my heros. What should I say?" I gathered my courage and waited for her to finish press. An onslaught of people surrounded her, as I knew they would. After all, she is WHOOPI GOLDBERG! Just as she was being escorted off the carpet, I seized my moment. I tapped her arm, opened my mouth and just let the words pour out. "Whoopi," I stammered, "you have been my hero for as long as I can remember. I admire everything you've done. You have been such an inspiration to me." There, I did it. I said it. I faced my fear and talked to one of my legends. And just like a true legend, she replied, "Well thank you. You'll be here one day too, so just make sure you reach back and help someone along the way." We hugged deeply as she nestled so comfortably in my arms. It was as if we were old friends. Through the lens of a broken phone, this photo was captured. As I journey through my career as an actress, I often reflect on her words of wisdom as a charge to uphold. I'm so grateful for the many opportunities I've had, the people I've met and the lives that I've already impacted. I'll admit, it's not always easy being a recognizable face amongst a crowd. Especially, when you feel as normal of a person as I do and just want to blend in. But, as my parents have often reminded me, "to whom much is given, much is required." . . "Just make sure you reach back." I will, Ms. Whoopi. I AM!
Our Friday has been good so far, hasn't it @mowgli.and.lola? . Yours? Happy #goodfriday everybody. . Thanks @nikiyamathis for styling this wig for me. I would've lied and told people it was my real hair, but this just looks too good to not give you the credit. Love you! . Happy Easter everyone.
Always feel at home behind a mike. Everytime I step into the studio, magic happens.
Happy 75th, @dianaross! With grace, glamour and humility you have blazed trails. You proved that, in a male-dominated industry, Black women can succeed by showing up as their authentic selves. When we do that, WE WIN. Thanks @phenomenal.ly for the T-shirt that benefits Higher Heights, which aims to build Black women's political power.
