Sh*t Bougie Black People Love

The Bougie Black Girl’s Mount Rushmore

Does she make the mountain?

Does she make the mountain?

For anyone who still doubts Olivia Pope is the patron saint of Bougie Black Girls, last night’s episode of Scandal is all the evidence you’ll need to change your mind. Watching her is like playing a game of Bougie Black Bingo. Every two minutes you get a new opportunity to check off a new section.

Lives in D.C.? Check!

Is a daddy’s girl? Check!

Has a “team” and speaks about “brands” and “branding” and “brand management” and how “brands will make her dance”? Check!

Gets visibly wet when men say things like “I can’t win without you” to her? Check!

May be a functioning alcoholic? Check!

Basically, although she’s a fictional character, she’s an easy choice for the Bougie Black Girl’s Mount Rushmore. But she’s just one person. A Mt. Rushmore needs four people. Who’d be the other three? Of all the women Bougie Black Girls love, emulate, stalk, and occasionally fantasize about, who’s the most deserving of a spot on the mountain?

Let’s see.

Michelle Obama

An easy choice, FLOTUS flower bomb basically has the Bougie Black Girl’s dream life. Limited power and access. A Gilt-inspired wardrobe. Beautiful daughters named after yoga poses. Brunch dates with Beyonce. A corporate husband with a name Blacker than the Blackest Black barber shop owner.

Lupita Nyong’o

No one in the history of Bougie Blackness has risen faster than the beautiful burgeoning actress. This time last year, no one knew if “Lupita Nyong’o” was the name of an actress or a Korean nail shop with takeout BBQ. But now, after her star-making turn in 12 Years a Slave and stunning appearances on literally everyone’s red carpet (Seriously, I’m considering buying a red carpet from Target tomorrow just to see if she shows up.), she may be the only person in Bougie Black Girl history with an approval rating at 126,000%.

Beyonce

Despite being regular Black, Beyonce is the Bougie Black Girl’s creative and sexual muse, using her music as an excuse to release repressed sexual urges, turning “game nights” into “awkward public twerk contests featuring NSBE board members and certified public accountants.” Also, her insistence on never, ever, ever, ever, ever sitting down is the main reason why Bougie Black Girls never seem to have enough chairs in their apartments.

***Honorable mention: Issa Rae, Ashley Banks, every character Nia Long and Sanaa Lathan have ever played, Melissa Harris-Perry, Shonda Rhimes, Claire Huxtable, Angela Nissel, Angela Bassett, Mae Jemison, post 1998 to pre 2008 Oprah Winfrey, Eve (not Eve the rapper, but Eve from the Bible)***

Did I miss anyone? Or rather, is there anyone else who should be on the mountain?

    Lupita is perfect. meh to the rest.

    • Sahel

      If she wins i will be mighty shocked. It’s her first major role,do they give oscars on the first role

      • iamnotakata

        Why? The Oscar measures merit…if her acting is that good then she deserves it….plus the Oscar would further solidify that she is EVERYTHING! I am here for all things Lupita!

        • Sahel

          The Oscars are a popularity contest

          • iamnotakata

            Well she should still win then because she is not only popular but beautiful!!

            • Sahel

              Just because she is getting coverage with the public does not translate to the Academy which votes in the winners.

              • LehcarB

                Especially in a category where J Lawrence is clearly the favorite.

                Oscar wins are bull but having recently seen Blue Jasmine I’m rooting for Cate Blanchett. She slays EVERYTIME!

                • http://stanoffewwords.wordpress.com/ Tristan

                  And all J Law did was throw on a wig and a bad Jersey accent

                  • LehcarB

                    You saw the movie? I remember looking at the previews and thinking the character seems similar to the one in Silver lining playbook

        • Guest

          Off the top, Jennifer Hudson. And there have been plenty of newcomers to win an Oscar just like conversely plenty of long-timers still have not gotten their dues.

        • ratchet d-Ibaka

          The Oscar Awards are very much political. Talent is just a sum of the whole. The machine behind you, matters a lot. If your marketing machine (publicist, agent, ESP agent), is connected with the movers and shakers of Hollyweird, eg. the directors who command big bucks, direct high networth movies, and also happen to fund some of these said projects, there are high chances of you winning that golden man.

        • http://vagabondaesthetics.tumblr.com/ Ricky

          Naw, if the Oscars measured merit Gena Rowlands would have more than Merryl Streep.

      • Andrea

        But what will she be wearing? Champ picked 2 of my favorite dresses on Lupita and Michelle. Eww chile We have the same taste

        • IcePrincess

          Yassss! Michelle’s dress is giving me Emerald Kingdom. Amazing. Do u know who made it?

          • Andrea

            Marchesa!

            • IcePrincess

              Ok ok I was gon say oscar de larenta, but yea good for marchesa. They DID that honey! Wurrrrrrrk

        • ratchet d-Ibaka

          j-hud was what i call a compensatory win. Somebody black has to win, to compensate for the lack of diversity in terms of nominees, casting opportunities, previous years black winner upsets and what have yous.

          On the aside, J-Hud cannot act, but she’s better than Yonce.

          • LehcarB

            “Somebody black has to win”

            I agree. However most of the pity wins make no sense. Like I disagreed with J Hud and Halle’s win but agree with Monique’s. And this year Nyong’o won’t win but Ejiofor might.

            • IcePrincess

              Monique, helllll yea

              • LehcarB

                She was terrifying as a villian. Almost too good

                • IcePrincess

                  Yea dude, she played the mess out that role. Like she was really that monster. Btw did u read the book? It was way, way more depraved than the movie.

                  • LehcarB

                    YES! Always love the books better and this one didn’t disappoint. Btw you know there was a follow up book with the son? Seriously one of the strangest books I ever read. Called The Kid

                    • IcePrincess

                      Oh wow ok good to kno. Ima check it out

            • Michelle

              I believe that Lupita won’t win this Oscar. I have a hunch that it is going to be either Sally Hawkins or Julia Roberts. When it comes to picking a winner, the Oscar always like the “surprise” element. They might give it to the “veteran” who spent decades in the game. I think the show’s producers are hoping that all of you VSBs and VSS watch the entire show, just so their ratings could come out on top.

              • afronica

                At one point last night, 8 of the top 10 Twitter topics has something to do with either Grey’s Anatomy or Scandal. Once Grey’s left the air on the East Coast, Scandal-related tags were 5 of the top 10 for a while.

                Sometime during those two hours, @Luvvie was either hosting or participating in a discussion with Nielsen that was tagged #ConsciousConsumer.

                Coinkydink? I think not. Seems like someone has noticed (black) Twitter, and the audience overlap with VSB has gotta be high.

            • basilblues

              Agree with you on Hudson and Halle. But i have been pulling for all things “12 years a slave” this awards season, so i’ve tried to follow most of the major awards shows. Lupita did win at the SAG and Critics Choice awards, so that keeps my hopes somewhat high for her at the Oscars. I’m really pulling for Ejiofor too and have loved him since “Love Actually” and especially “Kinky Boots”, but so far he’s only won the BAFTA.

              • LehcarB

                Considering the competition they both are facing its more likely Ejiofor would win.

            ———————————————————-
            This is what happened when Denzel won for Training Day. That wasn’t even in the top 5 of Denzel acting performances, but it made up for some of his past snubs. It was just that right year to compensate.

            • LehcarB

              I always said this! John Q was better acted in my opinion

            • ForeverCC

              i read an article somewhere that said denzel should’ve won for malcolm x but al pacino got it that year because al *should’ve* won for scent of a woman (?) the year before but didn’t…so denzel got it for training day to make up for the previous loss.

              • Epsilonicus

                Oscars almost always are doing that whole “make-up” award thing.

            • Cookie Monster

              I absolutely agree. That year they gave it to him, Halle and life time achievement to Sidney Poitier. It was the 74th annual, so they were saying, “You already know next year is not going to happen for black people, so take these and sit down.”

      • http://stanoffewwords.wordpress.com/ Tristan

        I think she dies, for one #whiteguolt, also she’s been gaining momentum since the globes

      • Yoles

        there is only one male actor that has ever won an Oscar in their debut. Haing S. Ngor won the Best Supporting Actor Award in 1984 for his role in The Killing Fields.

        The Oscar that has been awarded to a newcomer the most times is the Best Supporting Actress award. The most recent the Best Supporting Actress winner with no acting experience was Jennifer Hudson for the movie Dreamgirls in 2006. Prior to that Anna Paquin won the Best Supporting Actress award in her debut in 1993 for the movie The Piano

        Twenty years before Anna Paquin did it Tatum O’Neal also did it in the film Paper Moon in 1973.

        At one point during the 50′s the Best Supporting Actress Oscar was given to actresses making their film debut in back-to-back years. Eva Marie Saint had previously acted on broadway and on television but her first movie role was On the Waterfront in 1954 and she won the Best Supporting Actress award. The following year another actress making her film debut, Jo Van Fleet, won the Best Supporting Actress award.

        Three other actresses won the Best Supporting Actress in their debut film role. Mercedes McCambridge won for All the King’s Men in 1949, Katrina Paxinou won for her role in For Whom the Bell Tolls in 1943 and in 1936 Gale Sondergaard won for Anthony Adverse.

        One of the best Oscar stories of all-time is Marlee Matlin winning the Oscar in for Best Actress in 1986. Marlee Matlin starred in Children of a Lesser God and won the Golden Globe and Oscar despite it being her film debut. She is also the youngest actress to win the Oscar for Best Actress and she did all of this despite losing all hearing in one ear and 80% in the other ear at the age of 18 months old.

        Probably the two most famous examples of an actress winning an Oscar in their film debut are Barbara Streisand and Juile Andrews. Barbara Streisand was a great Broadway performer before her film career. One of her most famous roles was in Funny Girl and when Streisand reprised the role in her film debut she was admired all over again.

        Julie Andrews had also done Broadway but was new to film when she won her Oscar for Best Actress. Julie Andrews won her Oscar for Best Actress in this little Disney movie called Mary Poppins.

            honey i didn’t know all of that off the top of the head… just barbra streisand and julie andrews because those are MY bytches… the other ones i looked up and copied and pasted… i should have cited my source right? sorry

            off top of head is typically, health, human interaction, biology, chex, drugs and random shyt

              mary poppins and mrs. fawker are cool with me.

      • Brother Mouzone

        As long as she’s playing a slave, mammy, maid, or bed wench(modern-day or past), she has as good a chance as any of the white actresses.

        • ASayWhat

          I wish black misogynists would stop trying to popularize the term “bed wench” to describe women in interracial relationships and women who were raped during slavery simultaneously as if those two things were linked in some way. Women who are raped don’t deserve to be called names; their attackers do. And black women who CHOOSE to date or marry white men have nothing in common with victims of rape and genocide. Stop trying to blend the two. It says bad things about your character as a man that you would try to belittle your raped fore-mothers. I know your argument about some women having “chosen massa’s bed”, but slavery was a lot more complex than arguments like this let on and the very fact of having been a slave creates a disparity in power like that which makes statutory rape a crime. I don’t know why so many black men who have never even read a slave narrative until this movie came out have deemed themselves authorities on the “slave mentality” as if all slaves had the same mentality. Try to find language that actually shows some respect for the struggles of the men AND women who came before you. You kids nowadays have no knowledge of or respect for your past and it is disgusting to see some of the things you lost fools thin you’ve discovered.

          • Brother Mouzone

            Actually, I’m very well-read on several aspects of slavery( graduate of FAMU and mentee of Dr. Na’im Akbar, ph.D, google him) and I was referring to FICTIONAL portrayals in MOVIES that are usually(I said USUALLY) wriiten and/or produced by white men and have very little historical accuracy and very large amounts of stereotypical characterizations of Black people.. mammys, criminals, whores, etc.. My statement had NOTHING to do with ACTUAL slaves, it’s called a metaphor. You’re really reaching with the whole “black misogynist” thing, you may wanna check out all the up votes from FEMALES that my comments received. Wal-mart is having a sale on clues, why don’t you mosey on down there and buy one.

    I actually think bougie black girls pride themselves on the amount of time they spend ignoring Beyonce Knowles. It’s hard work but someone’s gotta do it. Or is that Activist Black Girls? Goddamn, it gets so confusing at times.

    • Leggy

      Nahhh, all the women on the list has said at one time or the other that they love Beyoncé, so I really don’t think they spend time ignoring her.

    • panamajackson

      I told Champ yesterday that Beyonce is polarizing to the bougie Black girl. It’s either love or hate most of the time.

      • LupitaStan

        I agree that Beyonce is too polarizing to be on Mt Rushmore….so in her place I definitely nominate Claire Huxtable.

      • Anonymous

        Beyonce is only polarizing to women who do not appreciate greatness.

        When I think of ‘women who dislike Beyonce, I think of women with graduate degrees from third tier universities who purchase signature handbags with credit cards with 30+ percent interest rates. They either have really bad weaves or never get past the TWA stage of going natural. They rarely have consistent edges. Makeup does nothing to help. They are the sort of women who go after men in relationships by rationalizing, ‘Well, he ain’t married.’

        I really can’t with these poseurs.

        • http://snarkyasiwant2b.wordpress.com/ faithsju243

          LOL the crazy thing is, when I conjure those images in my head, those are the exact women I picture who love and stan for Beyonce. Go figure…this is not to discredit her in anyway but she is by far one of the most amazing pop artist out today. Yet when I think of women I’d aspire to be like she doesn’t even come close. We all have different pathways to greatness.

        • afrosaxon1

          Your comment made me LOL. But I am not a Beyonce fan at all…I have also never purchased a signature handbag with or without credit cards.

      This is a fact and should be filed in the dictionary under Basic!! She showed her true 3rd Ward, TX roots on drunk in love when she was “rapping” I know that voice anywhere

      • Leggy

        So because she has an accent from where she’s originally from she’s basic? I see.

      • tgtaggie

        Lol. I remember when she tried “acting” it sounded like she was on some hooked on phonics ish.

      • panamajackson

        This makes no sense whatsoever.

        • iamnotakata

          Oh well I guess it wouldn’t to anyone who hasn’t lived in Houston. ..There is a very distinct way people talk that are from the 3rd ward area but really Houston in general and I could clearly hear it in her voice when she was rapping or whatever. ..

          • panamajackson

            Naw…I mean moreso how does her accent (which I happen to love, but I love me a good girl with a Houston accent) make her basic. It’s an accent.

            • iamnotakata

              Oh I wasn’t inferring her accent made her basic…

    • ratchet d-Ibaka

      uh uh, after drunk in love, shiiiiid, this patron saint of basicness graduated to patron saint of you did that!

    • panamajackson

      I need a working definition of basic. Basic broads may love her, but bougie broads (many who are also basic, let’s be real) also love her.

      • http://trulytafakari.com/ dtafakari

        Well, who ISN’T basic, then? I’m with you; I need definitions.

      • Medium Meech

        I think the problem we need a definition for bougie. A lot of us who identify more with the progressive/intellectual/conscious/whiny liberal clique of the “Not IN Jail Affluent” black scene (also know as NINJAs) don’t necessarily see bougie as a positive thing. In fact, some us might think that basic, bougie and beyonce probably belong in the same circle.

        • panamajackson

          You get no argument from me there. In fact, I think a lotof the bougie stuff is really a backhanded “compliment” if there is one. Like, nobody things bougie and thinks, that’s dope. So i’m with you homes.

  • Fivegirl

    Yea, Claire Huxtable definitely has to have a place on Mt Rushmore. There is no question every black girl wants to be a mom with a fly sense of style, good relationship with her husband, great job, bilingualism, and everything else right with Claire Huxtable

      All them kids made it difficult to travel, and bbgs love to travel

      • Kema

        They have to travel before and after kids.

    • panamajackson

      Yeah, I think you could start it off with Claire Huxtable and nobody would bat an eye. You could argue that Aunt Viv I could get some burn…

      • tgtaggie

        Which Aunt Viv though?

        • panamajackson

          Aunt Viv I. The first one.

          • Vanity in Peril

            The ONLY Aunt Viv a girl gon’ recognize.

        • pls

          first aunt viv is that bish!

    Adding Beyonce to this list is like the worst ending to a perfect series…Think LOST (the NBC show).

    Eh…bougie Black girls do nothing for me.

    Now, who is down to be OBJECTIFIED! YEAH SON!!!!111 ;-)

    Oh, and I seriously need to look into filing actual copyright papers on “hot todding”. I need to get my hustle on, sell some t-shirts with that on it, and get my life!

    • IcePrincess

      Looool Todd a freak

      • http://www.twitter.com/IluminatiNYC Todd

        Apparently, according to the commenters from a couple of days ago. I didn’t realize I had the King Freak title on lock for this site. *smh* I didn’t realize how ’bout that life I really am, especially when I know people who could son me right now in $ex game. LOL

        • IcePrincess

          Shoot, ain’t nun wrong wit it. And if you’re the king, I’m the self-proclaimed queen. Trey songs thought he invented $ex, but no chile, it was me! So carry on, be safe, & have fun. U deserve to be going HAM after the marriage u had. Cheers!

      Negro, dont let me see nan paraphernalia featuring the wonderful phrase EYE came up with….I got a starting lineup of legal counsel, I’ll set fire to the rain!!!

      • http://www.twitter.com/IluminatiNYC Todd

        I was the clear creative behind the concept. If it wasn’t for my comments and name, the concept of Hot Todding wouldn’t exist. I have a legal right to output under my name.

    • Sahel

      Supports Todd all the way. Bunni is using unfair buisness tactics

      • http://TheNewEve.com/ Bunni
