Tracee Ellis Ross Posts Childhood Warhol Picture, Putting Your TBT Pic to Shame



Tracee Ellis Ross released a throwback photo of herself last night on Instagram that put everybody else’s ” Throwback Thursday” posts to shame.

The actress posted a picture of her 11-year-old self taken by the legendary Andy Warhol in the 80’s with the caption, “A Polaroid taken of me by ANDY WARHOL! It was maybe 1982/3! #tbt #AndyWarhol”

Andy Warhol had a good relationship with Tracee’s mother, Diana Ross and had featured her on the cover of his Interview magazine as well as did the iconic cover art for her 1982 album Silk Electric. The Instagram picture just so happens to look a lot like the one that Warhol did of Tracee’s mother, Diana Ross in 1982 for the album leading us to believe that the two pictures may have been taken at the same time.

The mother-daughter resemblance is unbelievable. Take a look.

    I remember those Warhol pieces, but I’ve never seen Tracee as a kid.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
