It’s Friday and you know what that means! It’s time to share my favorite links for the week before heading off on a weekend full of adventures. Today, John and I are headed to the Europa Games Expo, which is basically a huge health and fitness convention. I will of course be snapping all day so come follow along to see what it is all about. Tomorrow we are getting together with friends and family to celebrate John’s best friend’s birthday. They have been friends for 29 years! #FriendshipGoals.
I hope you have some fantastic weekend plans ahead of you. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out Beyonce’s new film, Lemonade. Also, Purple Rain is playing in theaters around the U.S. which is the perfect way to spend a Friday night!
Let’s get into this Lemonade, shall we?
One of my favorite things about the Lemonade film is that it is so much bigger than Beyonce (which is pretty damn big because she is amazing).
Franchesca nails my thoughts exactly on older white men claiming they don’t like Lemonade.
Jamelia also weighed in and had some powerful words to share.
If you are having trouble understanding the hype around Lemonade, let Janet Mock explain it to you in a way that only a black woman can.
While I sip my Lemonade, I’m still grieving for The Purple One.
To this day I am obsessed with the Chappelle Show and I will always believe that his Prince skit was the best.
Luvvie captured the shock of losing Prince and followed it up with an article that actually made me smile.
D’Angelo and Princess stopped by The Tonight Show to perform a beautiful tribute to Prince.
