Top o’ the mornin’, gals and pals! I’m on my second cup of coffee and willing the sun to come out like it’s really spring up here in NYC! While I’m waiting, I made you a Pop Culture Fix!
+ Well Amaarae’s new music video for “Reckless & Sweet” sure is gay! It’s the first song off her forthcoming album, Fountain Baby, which will be released by Interscope later this year. In a statement about the video Amaarae said: This is my sexiest video to date, and what I love most about it is that young Black women and men are about to see what our new energy is for 2023 and beyond. Moving forward, we’re grown and sexy. We’re going to make sure we always look our best, talk our best, walk our best, and most of all we’re bringing love and romance back! “Reckless & Sweetwp_postsis a sexy song. It’s about being intentional with the ways we make and give love. It’s about finding the inner sensuality and confidence without yourself and sharing that with the world. As an artist that is exactly where I’m at at the moment.”
.+ Marvel Studios veteran Victoria Alonso, one of the only openly gay high ranking execs at the studio, is leaving the company. She’s been executive producing since the first Avengers movie.

+ The trailer for season four of A Black Lady Sketch show is here!
