Our tender little hearts can barely take this today. But also this is how we want to remember Michelle as the First Lady – thoughtful and funny and jamming out with Missy Elliott to Get Ur Freak On. She might not be in the White House anymore, but she’s forever in the hall of fame of amazing women.
Hi hello Ryan Reynolds? Can you please get right on this? Leslie Jones as a feisty sidekick in a superhero movie is honestly all we want from Hollywood. Plus, sometimes we wish our superpower was panty-dropping loudness too…
All hail Rashida. There’s literally nothing she can’t do, from playing America’s bff Ann Perkins to writing the screenplay for Toy Story 4 to writing the comic book Frenemy of the State to singing like a perfect angel. It’s honestly ridiculous how talented she is. So we made her our Woman Crush Wednesday as a small token of our esteem.
Honestly? We can’t get enough of Wanda Sykes. Every interview, every stand-up set, every tv appearance is just perfect glorious magic. She’s so effortlessly funny, but she hustles hard for her career and for the causes she believes in. If you were gonna pick one celebrity to put up on a pedestal, frankly, it should probably be Wanda. So we’re celebrating her today with a playlist of some of her badassiest, funniest, realest moments.
She’s all about women’s rights, she’s a spooky talented actor, and she’s also clearly a genuinely nice and lovely person. We’ve got a lot of love in our hearts for Felicity Huffman. So we put together a birthday playlist in honor of this renaissance lady, because the more Huffman in our lives the better, honestly.
Tbh, sometimes we’re kind of intimidated when we think about how cool Jenny Yang is. The badass comedian started out as a budding politician, and it definitely makes sense because she took over the comedy scene like a damn general staging a coup.
Yang produces the mostly female, Asian American standup comedy tour, Disoriented Comedy, as well as The Comedy Comedy Festival: A Comedy Festival. She does stand-up at college and clubs all over the country, she acts and writes for everything from Buzzfeed to SourceFed to The Guardian, and LA Weekly called her one of the most fascinating people in the city. Which, yeah, no freakin duh.
If you think Jenny is cool too, watch our playlist of some of her greatest hits, then keep an eye out for her Facebook live and Snapchat takeover later in the week. More Jenny means more happy.
