At 28 years old, Actress Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman, known simply as Raven-Symoné or Raven, has a strong sense of who she is and isn’t, she told Oprah Winfrey that she does not want to be labeled “gay” or “African-American.”
The 28-year-old Raven-Symoné, who is best known for her roles on NBC’s The Cosby Show and Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven, made her comments during an appearance on cabler OWN’s Where Are They Now?
Winfrey asked Raven-Symoné about a tweet she sent last year cheering the start of gay marriage laws in Minnesota and Rhode Island.
“I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you,” she messaged.
“Was that your way of coming out, saying you’re gay?” Winfrey asked.
“That was my way of saying I’m proud of the country,” she answered. “But, I will say that I’m in an amazing, happy relationship with my partner. A woman.”
Raven-Symoné said she knew about her sexuality at 12: “I was looking at everything.”
“So you don’t want to be labeled gay?” Winfrey asked.
“I don’t want to be labeled gay. I want to be labeled a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American. I’m an American,” she added. I don’t know how far more roots go in Africa but I know they are in Louisiana and that makes me an American. I’m colorless.
Love makes the world go round, for sure. But in some instances, love and sex can lead people through the swinging doors of the emergency room, with medical mishaps that are bizarre, potentially risky and very, very funny!
See the hilarious (and sometimes horrifying) sexual situations that land people in the emergency room. On TLC’s New Show Sex Sent Me to The ER. Every Saturday. You will recognize a familiar face in a frisky pool episode (lol)
I am featured in an episode of Sex Sent Me to The ER and to relive these people stories was crazy and interesting. I can just imagine what they were really going through.
Now dont be to alarmed by the pics we are safe for tv 🙂
Here is a little sneak peak http://bit.ly/1kBloGg
In the wake of the newly released sex-tape of Mimi Faust of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta folks don’t try these things at home hanging off shower rods is not the business!!!! I know one thing for sure I will be tuning in to VH1 to see how this entire fiasco plays out…
USA TODAY’s Donna Freydkin reported today of Ms. Lupita’s newest gig read more about it below!!!
Ms. Lupita is having a stellar year and it keeps on getting better.
Best supporting actress winner Lupita Nyong’o, joins the ranks of Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts as one of Lancome’s ambassadors. Ads will start appearing in September.
“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved. I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself,” Nyong’o said in a statement released by the French beauty house.
Nyong’o also popped up in Miu Miu’s spring 2014 campaign, and sat front-row at the brand’s recent show.
Throughout awards season, Nyong’o dazzled fashion watchers with her impeccable and often-daring fashion sense, which ranged from Chanel to Gucci to that red Ralph Lauren cape dress. She was both deeply elegant and elegantly fierce.
“I had to give a speech about beauty right before the Oscars,” she said in WWD, “and for me, beauty is a compassion for yourself and those around you. And I think that in focusing on that, the light inside illuminates the beauty outside. The idea that Lancôme now has a few actor ambassadors is significant because actors are not just faces, they are spirits that people enjoy and relate to more than in an aesthetic way. We have the privilege of standing for something other than just looks.”
Since the departure of Maya Rudolph in 2007 SNL has not casted a female African American to their line up until today. Variety has confirmed that Sasheer Zamata will be the latest young comedian to join Saturday Night Live, she will make her debut on January 18, 2014. Its refreshing to see more African Americans on T.V. of course I hope she does well and thrive in her new role! Get to know Ms. Sasheer Zamata www.sasheer.com
