Move over, Cookie Lyon! There's a new badass character for Taraji P. Henson to play!

On Thursday, we got our first taste of Taraji as an assassin in the trailer for her new flick, Proud Mary.

Video: Jada & Will Went On A SWAMP Tour??!

While we're used to seeing the 46-year-old play a badass on the FOX hit Empire, we're excited to see the A-lister flaunt her action movie skills in this new project. This is certainly a change from her latest performance in the Oscar nominated biopic, Hidden Figures.

Taraji can do it all, can't she??

taraji nia feud over period joke

This may shed some light as to why Nia Long was allegedly a nightmare on the Empire set.

As we previously reported, Miz Long clashed with Taraji P. Henson while filming the Fox drama as the Friday actress was supposedly nasty to the show's hair, makeup, and wardrobe people. Not to mention, it's said the 46-year-old was habitually late for filming and even threatened to file a suit against the show for not thanking her after her last scene.

However, Nia's people have since denied these crazzzzzy accusations. In fact, according to TMZ, the industry vet's problems with the show all stemmed from derogatory jokes made by Taraji and one of her fellow cast members. Oooh, go on!

Reportedly, Cookie *ahem* excuse us, Taraji jokingly asked Nia if she

Nia Long apparently was a nightmare on Empire set.

Ooh, the plot thickens!

We previously reported that Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson did not get along on the Empire set because of how Nia treated the hair, makeup, and wardrobe people. Well, now there's even more evidence against Nia!

Multiple production sources tell TMZ that the hair, makeup, and wardrobe workers actually filed a formal complaint against the actress for how rude and entitled she was acting during her time on the show.

Apparently the 46-year-old would parade around like a total diva, being extremely disrespectful toward hair and makeup. She would sometimes decide she didn't like her look at the last minute and then get angry at the employees. WTF!

Moreover, she was also "habitually late," making Taraji and Terrence Howard wait up to 30 minutes for her arrival. Sometimes a stand-in would be called so that Taraji and Terrence could at least rehearse before Nia deigned to show up. So fucking rude! We can't!

Mariah Carey is a queen of the music industry, but the superstar was ruling the land of TV when she guest starred on Wednesday night's episode of Empire!

Playing a unitard wearing Mimi-esque pop star named Kitty, the Elusive Enchantress stole almost every scene she was in, especially her duet with Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett).

In the actual scene, Jamal was a bit nervous to belt one out next to the talented Kitty while recording their song Infamous. (We mean, we would be, too…)

But in the song's official music video the two sound pitch perfect! On top of showing off her powerful pipes, the 46-year-old throws in some diva-tastic hand movements — because, why not?

After this musical magic, we hope to see a lot more Kitty on the show!

Ch-ch-check out the full music video (below) and watch Empire Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on FOX!
