Lupita Nyong’o (via sonofafieldnegro)
this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.
Gabby: You know who I find pretentious?
Gabby: Blue Ivy.
Vanessa: Isn’t she like a baby?
Gabby: I know, but she thinks just because her mom is Beyonce that she is something.
Gabby: You saw her in the music video, looking all pretentious!
Some things are too painful to say out loud
Well, they live behind a veil and see through a shroud
Words fly through his mouth, like paper butterflies
They flutter around and burn holes in your side
You’re the sweet scent on an envelope
A folded photo in his purse
But if you pin your hopes to his back my dear
I’m afraid the bubble will burst
I just want to know how many of us there are!
