Yep February’s crush is on a superwoman closer to home a cray force of nature with brains, beauty and WTF? humour, BAFTA award winning Miss Michaela Coel.
“If there’s anyone out there that looks a bit like me, or just feel outta place trying to get into performing or this kinda stuff, I just say you’re beautiful- embrace it, you are intelligent- embrace it, you are powerful- embrace it…” #motivation
It is exhilarating to see a young multi-talented BOSS babe on screen who I can relate to directly and indirectly- it’s been about bloody time!!
If you haven’t watched any episodes of her cray but frank comedy series ‘Chewing Gum’ since it launched on screens last year, take a moment to reflect on your embarrassment, know that I am giving you the ‘people’s eyebrow’, and take a deep breath. Now click any of these links to get skooled…
There was a furore when Lena Dunham’s ‘Girls’ came out like a game changer but honestly, other than ‘unconventional’ female characters there wasn’t enough I could relate to or care about even though I really rate her. #justsaying
For me, this is the real game changer especially in mainstream British TV for a long while (big up channel 4 and Talawa Theatre) and on a personal level it’s #GOALS.
Her character ‘Tracey Gordon’ is sooo extra! She talks about sex like the weather, she’s of Ghanaian heritage and on top of her immense creativity and writing, she has a banging’ athletic body. #canttouchthis
Looking forward to series 3 already!!
