Filed under: TV NewsGolden GlobesTargetTaraji P. HensonEmpire

Taraji speaks on how she tries to keep her life as normal as possible.

Speaking to Extra in a new interview, the fierce actress spilled:

"It's weird because I've been doing this for so long and it took a character like Cookie to expose me to the world in a way that I've never been exposed before."

It's true. But Cookie Taraji is trying to stay as down-to-earth as possible.

The 45-year-old shared:

"I love to shop at Target and I love to do my own shopping, but that's become difficult… with the paparazzi. It's like, ‘Where were y'all, like, 10 years ago?' You have got to take the good with the bad. The good side is I can get into any restaurant… last-minute."

LOLz!

And revealing what it was like to be awarded with her first GG, she revealed:

"That is our soul we expose to the world, so whenever people receive it and people go, ‘Oh, we want to give you something,' it always feels good."

What a beautiful way to put it!

Though in five years, the starlet hopes to be settled down a bit. Taraji explained:

"Hopefully, I don't want to say ‘retired,' but a little slowed down. Maybe just picking and choosing projects I want to do. Maybe enjoying the fruits of my labor."

Yass!

At least this means we won't be saying "bye" to Cookie anytime soon!

Empire's Jussie Smollett Opens Up About His Sexuality — 'I Am A Gay Man. I Am A Gay Man. I Am A Gay Man'

Jussie Smollett

Just when we thought we couldn't love Jussie Smollett more, this happens.

The Empire star is featured in OUT magazine's March 2016 issue — and what's even more impressive than his steamy cover shot is what he has to say on the inside.

The 32-year-old told Ellen DeGeneres he has "never been in the closet," he just prefers to keep his private life out of the spotlight.

But as many celebrities are well aware, with fame comes curiosity.

In the new interview, the California native explained:

"I am a gay man with an extremely open heart. God, I've never had to talk about this, so I'm trying to find the words. If I had to label myself, I would label myself as a gay man. With that said, I believe that love is the only thing that matters, and I would hope that anybody would leave themselves open — not to gender, but to love. I would hope that people would not close themselves off from what could be if, lo and behold, you meet somebody that just sweeps you off your feet, and you just can't do anything about it. If we truly believe that we are born this way, then why do we try to stifle the way we were born? If I fall in love down the road with a woman, I'm going to love that woman."

Love is love!

As for his decision to first discuss his sexuality on Ellen:

Kevin Spacey Relives All His Past Murder & Mayhem In Startling House Of Cards Season Four Teaser!

Filed under: TV NewsKevin SpaceyNetflix

Will this house ever fall?

With all of Netflix's upcoming new projects, we sometimes forget that their flagship shows are some of their best work.

That's why we were pleasantly surprised when we were treated to a new House of Cards trailer during the Golden Globes on Sunday!

The Season Four teaser doesn't offer up much new footage, but reliving all of Kevin Spacey's questionable acts/murders — while he delivers a message to the American people — sure has us pumped for March 4!

Plus, Robin Wright may have lost the Best Actress in a TV Drama award to Taraji P. Henson… but hopefully the new season will bring both Frank and Claire back to the forefront and get them even more nominations.

All 13 episodes of House of Cards Season Four will be available on Netflix March 4.
