The first female, first Black, and first South Asian vice president-elect Kamala Harris walked out to Mary J. Blige’s “Work That” while looking elegant and ethereal in a white pantsuit. Kamala’s color choice was not by happenstance as pointed out by MadameNoire, it was actually an ode to the Women’s Suffrage movement, a collective fight that led to the passage of the 19th Amendment. Women who were involved in the movement often wore white and The National Woman’s Party’s colors were white, gold, and purple with white deemed “the emblem of purity.”

During her historic victory speech, Kamala paid tribute to not only the Women’s Suffrage movement but her late mother Shyamala Gopalan Harris “who maybe didn’t imagine this moment” but “believed so deeply in America where a moment like this is possible.” The vice president-elect also gave a shoutout to all women, but especially Black women for being the “backbone of our democracy.”

“So, I’m thinking about her and about the generations of women — Black Women. Asian, White, Latina, and Native American women throughout our nation’s history who have paved the way for this moment tonight. Women who fought and sacrificed so much for equality, liberty, and justice for all, including the Black women, who are too often overlooked, but so often prove that they are the backbone of our democracy.

All the women who worked to secure and protect the right to vote for over a century: 100 years ago with the 19th Amendment, 55 years ago with the Voting Rights Act, and now, in 2020, with a new generation of women in our country who cast their ballots and continued the fight for their fundamental right to vote and be heard.

Tonight, I reflect on their struggle, their determination and the strength of their vision — to see what can be unburdened by what has been — I stand on their shoulders. And what a testament it is to Joe’s character that he had the audacity to break one of the most substantial barriers that exists in our country and select a woman as his vice president.

But while I may be the first woman in this office, I won’t be the last.”

Beautiful.

As for president-elect Joe Biden, his impassioned speech centered on uniting the country as a President for “all people” so we can be “a nation united, a nation strengthened, a nation healed.” He also gave a special shoutout to the African-American community who “stood up for him” and pledged to return the favor by “always having their back.”

“To all those who volunteered, worked the polls in the middle of this pandemic, local election officials — you deserve a special thanks from this nation. To my campaign team, and all the volunteers, to all those who gave so much of themselves to make this moment possible, I owe you everything.

And to all those who supported us: I am proud of the campaign we built and ran. I am proud of the coalition we put together, the broadest and most diverse in history. Democrats, Republicans and Independents. Progressives, moderates and conservatives. Young and old. Urban, suburban and rural. Gay, straight, transgender. White. Latino. Asian. Native American.

And especially for those moments when this campaign was at its lowest — the African-American community stood up again for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours. I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that. Now that’s what I want the administration to look like.”

Ice Spice’s Super Bowl Spectacle Goes Up in Flames, Michael Blackson’s Roast Takes Center Stage

Michael Blackson didn’t hold back when expressing his disappointment with Ice Spice‘s performance at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party. The comedian took to Instagram to share his thoughts, quipping, “Tell the frozen spice girl to stop singing to me; I have a dashiki that’s older than her.” Blackson even posted footage of Spice rapping and twerking, capturing his unimpressed expression, and fans joined in with their own critiques.

“So she’s a stripper with a microphone. Got it,” remarked one hater, while another concurred, “Imagine your music being so trash you have to show your nakedness so we can forget that your music is trash 🗑️.”

Despite the less-than-stellar performance, Ice Spice was among the lineup at Rubin’s event, which also featured performances by Travis Scott and Quavo. The annual tradition leads up to Super Bowl LVIII, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to face off. Usher is slated to headline the Halftime Show, with the 49ers entering the game as slight favorites.

In a surprising turn, Ice Spice’s full Super Bowl ad for Starry’s has been unveiled. The ad features Spice getting cozy with the soda brand’s animated mascots until her “ex-boyfriend” tries to win her back. When rejected, the man’s head explosively transforms into a soda fountain. Titled “It’s Time To See Other Sodas,” the ad dropped on February 2 but held no clues about Spice’s real love life, contrary to some gossip sites’ beliefs.

This isn’t Spice’s first venture into food and drink advertising. Before her Super Bowl ad stint, she was seen in Dunkin commercials. Last year, Spice collaborated with Ben Affleck to promote her limited-time signature drink at the coffee chain. The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink’s first ad aired during the VMAs on September 12, featuring Affleck and Spice brainstorming names for the drink in a playful spot with Affleck embracing his Boston accent while Spice plays the straight woman.
