1. Sisterhood is alive and well, even during a zombie apocalypse.

The new season of one of my favorite shows on television -- The Walking Dead -- began Sunday. In honor of the season premiere Bust.com recently ran the Bust interview with Sonequa Martin-Green from the Feb/March 2015 issue of the magazine. Martin-Green is the badass actress who plays Sasha (and she went to my alma mater University of Alabama. Roll tide!). In the interview Martin-Green says: “I’m particularly close to all the ladies. We all spend a lot of time together in these remote locations and hang out when we’re not working. We love to eat!” 

2. My first lady made me a mixtape.

OK, so Michelle Obama didn't make the "Day of the Girl" playlist just for me, but with songs by Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Fergie, and many more of my favorite artists, it sure feels like she did. FLOTUS created the list in honor of the fourth annual celebration of the United Nation's International Day of the Girl. You can check out the playlist below. You're welcome. 


3. Essence magazine celebrates the 29 powerful black women who helped run President Barack Obama's administration

4. Janet Jackson has been nominated for the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Winners will be announced in December. Fingers crossed!

5. Issa Rae's comedy, "Insecure," has received a full series order from HBO.

The show will explore many of the themes from Rae's wildly successful webseries The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. I can't wait!
