So Drake is basically our hero of the week.
At the rapper’s concert this week in Sydney, Australia, he threatened an audience member for touching women inappropriately in the crowd.
What a creep!
He legit stopped the entire show to publicly embarrass this man, and I am so grateful for it. With all the crap that’s been going on with sexual assault, we need people like Drake to call out these creepers.
Like, did your parents never tell you not to touch random people in crowds, moreover in that way?!
As a thank you, I’ve decided to feature this cool Drake fan art by illustrator Ryan Simpson (@rtsimp) that I found over on Instagram. I love how he got the little curve design in Drake’s haircut just right!

A couple of weeks ago, my mom and I had one of those “where are they now” moments while discussing one of my favorite 90s children’s television characters, Loonette the Clown, from The Big Comfy Couch.
As anyone does, we did a quick Google search and found that Loonette was played by Alyson Court, who has a son and is now in her 40s. More on where she is now can be found over on MTV.com.
I used spend countless hours as a kid circa 1999 trying to perfect Loonette’s clock rug stretch on my bedroom floor after every episode (which was always a complete fail because I wasn’t that flexible then and I’m still not flexible now).
I woke up this morning remembering all this and decided I should probably make use of it for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. So, here’s some amazing fan art of Loonette and her doll Molly by nellii_bug on Instagram. It was created using ink brush pens, which give the fan art a watercolor feel. I also love the fact that she gave Loonette anime eyes!
BTW, would make a perfect Halloween costume idea for mother and daughter. You can even go as Loonette and take a Molly doll along with you if you can’t find a human to pair up with.

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is out in theaters today, for those of you who’d rather leave the cinema laughing instead of fearing nightmares this Halloween.
I really did not expect Tyler Perry to create a second Halloween-themed Madea film. Not that I didn’t like the first one, but this doesn’t seem to be a direct continuation of the 2016 film. I’ll still probably watch it when it arrives n DVD though.
I was quite young when Madea became a household name. My Godmother gave my mom one of Tyler Perry’s stage plays ages ago. It’s insane how far Madea’s craziness has gotten on the big screen.
For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, we celebrate everything that is Madea with this cartoon by M. Rasheed. It featured Madea and her many faces.
I’m not sure what possessed Tyler Perry to allow Madea to legally own a gun. I would not be caught dead near her while that thing was loaded.
View the original fan art on Pinterest, and watch the trailer for Boo 2! A Madea Halloween below!
So I’m going to finish out National Hispanic Heritage Month with one of my favorite Hispanic TV characters, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, played by Sofia Vergara, from Modern Family.
Both the actress and the character are Colombian, which is pretty convenient.
Gloria has such a colorful personality that it’s hard not to like her. From being an overprotective mother to her crazy temper, she’s one of those television characters you can’t easily forget.
Gloria is also known for being really loud, as portrayed in this fan art by katseartist on Deviant Art. She’s screaming for her husband, Jay, as she does regularly on the show. I can hear her voice just from looking at this cartoon version of Gloria.

Continuing on with Hispanic celebs for National Hispanic Heritage Month, I decided to feature Mexican-American actress Karla Souza as Laurel Castillo on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder for this week’s Fan Art Fridays.
Season 4 of the series premiered on Thursday night, and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get though this season without having a series of small heart attacks.
Found on Tumblr, this piece of fan art by Laura Nickelle (Crowns of Reinvention) features a quote from the 8th episode of season 2, titled “Hi, I’m Philip” where Laurel is accused of being an entitled “MAP” (Mexican-American Princess).
“So I’m a princess just because I dared to disagree with you?” she snaps back, which is written on the fan art edit in clouds of gray and pink splatter.
Do you have a favorite Laurel Castillo quote? Let me know in the comments!

This week we learned that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child, so I just HAVE to feature the royal couple for this week’s Fan Art Fridays!
Obviously I’m excited about this news, but some Brits aren’t
To celebrate, I found this life-like portrait of Will and Kate over on Deviant Art. Created by Soul of David (David Tercias) the digital piece was inspired by this photo of the two.
I just can’t get over how much hair William has lost since they started having children. Look at how full his hair was back then!

Today, Zendaya Coleman turned 21! I honestly didn’t realize she wasn’t yet legal before.
Zendaya is one of my fave multiracial celebrities. I love her eclectic sense of style. It matches her personality so well.
Speaking of style in this piece of fan art by Alina that I found in a collection on Tumblr, Zendaya wears a white blazer with a black lapel, a chambray top and some gold bling. So classy.
I also adore that shade of pink lipstick on her!
If you haven’t already seen Zendaya in Spiderman: Homecoming, this is the perfect opportunity to do so over the Labor Day holiday weekend!
