*ques PTAF's - Boss Ass Bitch*
Taraji is on top of the world these day and we completely fuck with it! She's the ultimate boss ass bitch, taking over our television and cinema screens. Known lately for playing Cookie on Fox's hit tv show "Empire", lets take it back and school you on how long this woman has been hustling. During the mid 90's, Taraji made appearances on shows like Sister Sister and ER. Still making it work after giving birth to her son in 1994. In 2001, Taraji's breakthrough role playing Yvette in Baby Boy put her on Hollywoods map. Let's all be real.. Who doesn't love Baby Boy?!. (Oh, Jody!) Since then she's been apart of some successful films like "Hustle & Flow" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Her skills are nothing to be played with, bringing emotion to every role she's been given. We see you girl! Ms. Henson also starred in 2012's hit film "Think Like a Man", playing Lauren - the very independent-too busy for a man role. A role we think every LDYBY has cross roads with. This is why we loved Taraji's character, because she was a successful woman building her own blocks and unapologetic about it. Very similar to her own life. Just this week, Taraji entered the world of writing and dropped her first book. Better yet a memoir, titled "Around The Way Girl". We are so excited to get our hands on this, in hopes of inheriting her boss ass ways! As if a hit tv show and launch of her book wasn't enough, Taraji is starring in the highly anticapted 2017 film "Hidden Figures". A story about a team of African American woman providing NASA with mathematical data needed to launch it's first successful space mission. The untold story of how when a group of intelligent women get together, shit get done ! Let's salute Ms. Henson for showing us ladies how a woman can do it all in any field we're in and slaying roles that actually empower us.
Check out the trailer to "Hidden Figures" below.
Get excited, we see this film being not only a box office hit but a huge inspiration for us gals! Did you see the cast? YAS Octavia Spencer & Janelle Monáe 👏🏽
