EP24: A Week of Black Queens & the Pope

The week was pretty low key for both of us. Shells’ youngest is really coming into her personality — and she’s going to be a handful. Meanwhile, Irene is happy that she gave into Tidal and Apple Music and it’s taking over her life…in a good way, of course. Not to mention…what a time it is to be alive, thanks to Drake & Future…and all of the amazing fall television that premiered this week.

Ellen helped kick off the week of Black Queens with an amazing line up of guests this week, including Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae, and Viola Davis. Not only was it a treat to watch the great conversation that our bestie (in our heads), Ellen had with all these amazing women, we LOVE to see Ellen and her wife, Portia DeRossi, together and this week the two shared the talkshow stage…and it was super cute and endearingly funny!

This week we ask, would you rather never touch another human again or never touch a computer powered device again…. ever. This one turned out to be a littler harder than we expected… and we want to hear from you… We’re on Twitter and Facebook @FSGPodcast #FSGWYR

Then we get into this week’s water cooler news, which just so happened to be chock-full on Black Queens…and The Pope. Viola Davis’ Emmy win and her acceptance speech was triumphant, honest, and inclusive. Taraji demonstrated what supporting your sisters looks likes…literally. Then Apple premiered a commercial adorned with Black Queens. It’s one of the best commercials we’ve ever seen because it speaks loudly to fun, friendship and the experience of music. And speaking of musical experiences … Beyonce slayed, yet again, at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC and then had the esteemed honor of introducing The First Lady, Michelle Obama, who spoke about the new a campaign #62MillionGirls. And if a week of Black Queens wasn’t enough, there was also the fact that the division of church and state was at an all time low, with the pervasive presence of His Holiness – The Pope.

A young Canadian songbird is in Irene’s beat’s this week and a Rhonda Rousey quote (that caught Beyonce’s attention) inspired Shells’ Eye Spy.

Remember to listen. laugh. share! We love ya’ll! Until next week, good people!

(Recorded September 27, 2015)

    🚨New Episode Alert: "Level Up w/ @monascottyoung" 🚨 #GiggleGang!! THE Mona Scott Young is on the show this week!!! Yes, Mona. Scott. Young. The juggernaut behind VH1’s smash series, @loveandhiphop!
    Before I got into all of Mona’s business, we chilled around the "water cooler" to discuss the greatness that is @Serenawilliams, @Beyonce and @Balmain giving back to #HBCU’s, the traitor that is #Trump, and #StevieJ and #Faith’s real love and hiphop story.
    Then Mona takes us down memory lane by sharing her story of how she got into the entertainment industry, the glory years of Violator and Def Jam records, how she met and started managing @missymisdemeanorelliott, the creation of #LHH, and her latest venture- the release of her new book, #BlurredLines.

    FSG is grinding!! I interviewed @iamdevale in the middle of #BourbonStreet during #EssenceFestival2018 weekend. The stars were aligned that night and I'm so grateful. Thank you Devale for speaking with me on a crowded and litty street in #NewOrleans. S/o to @khadeeniam and @stephienicks0804 for just chattin' it up in the background. 😂
