Why I like Lupita

So, you know how this is the year of Lupita? Well, I'm typically one of those people who doesn't go along with the in-thing simply because everyone is on a bandwagon. I watched 12 Years a Slave, and while I thought it was a very good movie, I didn't think Lupita was all that awesome. She was good o, don't get me wrong. But I was underwhelmed.

However, I must tell you that I actually do like Lupita! I like her sense of style, her personality seems nice, but most of all, this chick is VERY WELL SPOKEN!!! As in, have you ever heard her speak? She's not trying to sound American, or African, or anything. She just speaks clearly, and by jove, I LAVVEET!!!!

Oya listen... this is where she talks to Vogue about braiding.

Don't lie, you've fallen in love too. Okay, I'll beg her to read the dictionary on your behalf.

Yes, she's my new cousin.

  1. She seems okay, I didn't get what all the fuss about her was for. I certainly didn't like her acting scenes from Shuga. But I like that she's real,down-to-earth. It isn't easy to remain like that after you've been in the spotlight.


  2. She seems okay. I didn't what get the fuss about her was for before. I certainly didn't like her acting scenes from Shuga. But I like that she sounds so down-to-earth. No 'forming'


    1. She really does sound down-to-earth.

  3. Thank God I wasn't the only one that thought she "wasn't all that",no hating ohhh!! My friend would always say I'm beefing her, hian! Her sense of style is amazing though or rather her stylist is good....:)

  4. I do actually like her - she seems like she'd be cool to hang out with. I have never seen her act so I cannot comment on that but she is pretty, stylish and well-mannered.

    Hollywood tends to fall in love fast and hard and I think it is that hype which has made it difficult for some of us to "love" her. But it is good for her and for all the young women who need to see a different face in the media. I pray that she continues to do well.

  5. Hmm berry berry u haff jus cousin d geh fast fast na wa o. True o I didn't see anything spectacular about 12 years a slave I just thought twas coz I wasn't looking through professional eyes but I think she has an amazing personality nd d world is jst ready for a black woman to take the lead

  6. Personally I really didn't understand her hype. I haven't seen the movie either so can't comment on her acting. Everyone went oh she's dark and with short hair and I'm like...isn't Alek Wek really dark with short hair???
