Taraji P. Henson Proves She Can Take Her Empire Anywhere As She Hosts Saturday Night Live For The Very First Time!

Your Reaction?

The name's cookie, take a bite!

By now, it's obvious that Taraji P. Henson can do no wrong, but that fact was just reinforced over the weekend as she hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in her 18-year career!

While the sketches themselves weren't the greatest we've ever seen, Taraji did prove that she can hang with the best of SNL's players — the best being Kate McKinnon and Taran Killam.

And speaking of Kate, the star of the up-and-coming Ghostbusters reboot helmed the episode's best bit, the Hillary Clinton-inspired cold-open!

Olivia Munn, Taraji P Henson and Zoe Saldana at Samsung Galaxy launch.

Wooooo, it's the Samsung Galaxy S6 launch, y'all!!!

It's gonna get CRAZY!!!

Celebrities will dress up for practically anything, like the launch of a phone that is only slightly different than the previous one made by the same company.

But we can't complain because we love seeing celebrities in pretty clothes, like Olivia Munn, Taraji P. Henson, and Zoe Saldana in this case — all of whom were looking FOINE on the red carpet on Thursday in LA.

While Cookie was a total seductress in a sheer black lace dress, Zoe was very ladies-who-lunch in a floral Roland Mouret sheath with yellow pumps!

Olivia went her own way in floral high-waisted shorts and a billowy white blouse.

So much beauty in one place! We wouldn't have been able to handle it!

We guess it was lucky we weren't there…

Taraji P. Henson Apologizes For Saying Her Son Was Racially Profiled By Police

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFamilyTaraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson claims son was racially profiled

Last month, Empire star Taraji P. Henson spoke with Uptown magazine about an incident where her son was racially profiled when he was stopped by police on his way home from USC.

The actress said that her son followed police orders after he was pulled over by an officer — even though they allegedly searched his car illegally.

Now, a 40-minute video obtained by the Los Angeles Times shows the police report footage from the actual incident in Glendale, CA.

The footage from Oct. 18 shows an officer pulling over Marcell Johnson (Henson's son) after he drove through a lighted crosswalk as a pedestrian crosses.

When the officer asked whether he had anything illegal in his car, Johnson responded that he had marijuana in his backpack — for which he had a state-issued medical marijuana license.
