Hero That Never Carried The O, Guess I'm Just Her Avatar

msamberpriley That girl on the left was so unsure. She didn’t appreciate her chocolate skin or nappy hair. One of the very few black kids in her school, she always felt excluded and didn’t necessarily fit in. Being teased and called the “N word” more times than enough, made her want to be invisible and unseen. She thought different meant ugly. I thank God for her journey. Because that woman on the right learned to love her skin, accept and appreciate her heritage, and even grew some hips, boobs, and thunder thighs and learned to love those too 😝 I grew from an inwardly insecure girl to a very proud and confident black woman. I was NOT made for obscurity. I was created to overcome and help others know they too can overcome 😊 I am not where I want to be but I am far from what I used to be. It feels good to love me! #TransformationTuesday I know most ppl’s transformation are from big to skinny but mine kind of went in reverse 😂 sue me!

What people don’t understand about music is that it doesn’t need permission to get into your brain.

Amber Riley

speaking that truth

christel-thoughts:

I have always wanted to hear her sing this. I’m actually tearing up.

reminder this happened

Sexual orientation:

women of color in white suits (sometimes just a blazer)

hey ladies. (i couldn’t delete Cory… i mean he died, it felt rude).

Naya in a totally different white suit. (or so i’m telling myself at least)

Janet’s been doing it since forever

ok now you’re just showing off

oh ok Kelly.

Kelendria, ok.

PLEASE STOP KEKE, IT HURTS.

lu

hey Jennifer!

ok Ms Lopez…

JLO GOTDAMN

looking like “a billion for 1, please”.

now Rihanna, before you even start…

Rih please

… what is it going to take to become your bottom?

this idiot continued… 

eventually it got to “racism goes both ways” and “why don’t you tweet about the white cop that was just murdered?”

i just… these people are ridiculous.

Celebrities react to the Ferguson protests

it is totally possible not to respond with “you got to looooooooooooooooove the man killing you into not killing you”.
i love Amber.

Now that I’ve made clear that I’m hopelessly behind the pop cultural times, let me drop one last secret: I may be the only theater critic in America who hasn’t watched a full episode of “Glee.” Thus, I wouldn’t be able to identify Amber Riley on a red carpet, but once she took the stage as Dionne for the opening number, “Aquarius,” any resistance I may have had to this exercise in commercially packaged nostalgia fell away.
Singing with enough feeling to shift the position of the moon, Riley set the mood for what was a bright and convivial if a tad overlong evening.
