So many people can say they are bilingual now…

Professor Regina Bradley gets that her students receive a lot of their information about politics and trends from music. Now, Bradley is gearing up to offer a course dedicated to analyzing the iconic ATL music group, OutKast.

We are definitely feeling this.. Yes, darling, I am fluent in English and OutKast.

Wielding a Ph.D. in African-American Literature as well as a heavy background in pop culture, Bradley will be using OutKast’s music, as well as other hip-hop records, to look at how the artists used their platform for political expression.

Bradley explains that OutKast’s work holds just as much validity as the more “classical” literary works.

Kind of makes you think of a bunch of white guys with those funny wigs and their feather pens, right?

Bradley claims, “OutKast is more than deserving of a close analysis, especially in thinking about contemporary southernness because they were many folks’ first introduction to the possibility of southern rappers.”

Yass, Regina! Please do Andre and Big Boi some justice!

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
