Two Brown Girls - Episode 11

In this episode of Two Brown Girls, we discuss the beauty of Suraj Sharma and our ~celebrity fantasies~, Law & Order: SVU’s ratchet Chris Brown/Rihanna episode, Anne Hathaway and ‘In Defense of the Happy Girl’ (has the media trained us to hate girlishness?), Zoe Saldana’s comments on her Nina Simone biopic criticism, and our unbridled hatred for James Franco, amongst other things. Happy Sunday!

"I guess what kept me from being hurt by the negative comments was that I’m doing it for my sistas and my brothas and I don’t care who tells me I’m not this or I’m not that, I know who I am and I know what Nina Simone means to me. I did it all out of love for my people and my pride of being a black woman and a Latina woman and an American woman and that’s my truth."
