It’s been quite a while since I could crank one out due to school and daily life but can we say Empire is winning and bringing it strong!
There’s so much we can discuss but I’m going to try to narrow it down to some key things we all are talking about.
First of all let’s talk about what I take the most serious and a situation that’s dear to my heart which is the continued discussion and presentation of mental health and illness which is channeled through Andre Lyon’s character and how Empire is continuing to show many the facts of how genetics and mental health can sometimes go hand in hand.
I felt so moved in my spirit and personally went on the Empire fan page on Facebook to thank the writers, I know for a fact that as this story line continues and a voice in Andre is given that there will be continued discussion’s among families and friends, I pray and envision those who may be suffering with mental illness especially adults and those who look so “happy and normal” can see a piece of themselves expressed in Andre and have that family discussion or have the courage to speak to someone; as I am someone who has suffered with and managed depression as well as anxiety most of my life I can say having support of loved ones and true, professional and spiritual guidance is everything in managing and recovering to live a healthy life, No matter what there’s always light at the end end of the tunnel!
While we are speaking on mental health and spiritually thriving I want to take out this time to honor and give mad respect to Jussie Smollett and Estelle for their duet of Conqueror last year!
I want to give that shout out because I personally was literally so low emotionally the night before watching that episode and God used and has continued to use that song to encourage me and get me through, It pushed me to not give up on getting into college and I have read so many comments online about people battling cancer and finding encouragement, Having courage to keep pressing on after losing a loved one and I can remember reading a comment or two including a women’s on YouTube about how she had plans to commit suicide that same night after watching Empire but that song changed her mind and her outlook so hopefully Jussie will see this article one day or those comments!
That clap back was funny as hell and Gansta he did on Luscious to (lol) , Still got like my daddy on repeat!
While we are speaking on awesome music can we please, please get more of Serayah! Baby girl is seriously serving and not playing at all this season! Every dance step in perfect precision and catching the heck out of the beat and every note coquettish, vocally serving and sexy!!
More, More, More please! Not going to lie I was really feeling her and Hakeem but him and Laura are cute and if you’ve been living under a rock would be the only way you wouldn’t know she’s going to become Mrs. Lauren Lyon soon but hopefully Serayah get’s written in more on the show and we can see her have a new romance of her own.
Before we end this thing let’s head to Anika Calhoun aka Miss Boo Boo Kitty hot mess lol. I truly believe although it seems the writer’s played her and dogged her big time for a minute now that she had this whole plan in her head the whole time, first sleep with the only available son to try and put the pain on Lucious’s heart and yes, yes, and yes I believe she wanted that boy and that sex just enough times until she knew for sure she was pregnant. Baby girl all I’m going to say about that is Luscious never loses a war, maybe a scrimmage or a battle for awhile he may limp but never loses the full war and if you did what everyone thinks you did in season two mid season finale something tells me this show will get really scary once the Lyon’s find out, being pregnant may be her only insurance…maybe….
