Girl Down! Big Freedia’s Our Guest In New Orleans, Plus The First Purge Cast Is Here!
We’re still on a high from our biggest ESSENCE Fest yet and we’re reliving the moment we shared opening for The Read LIVE in New Orleans! We brought NOLA’s own Queen Of Bounce, Big Freedia (@bigfreedia), along to Kid Fury & Crissle’s (@thisistheread) show to help us get the crowd hype. And, oh what fun we had! Big Freedia reveals how she found her confidence, why she doesn’t care if you call her Freddie or Freedia and how New Orleans does it best. Plus, we caught up with summer movie stars Y’lan Noel (Daniel from Insecure) and Lex Scott Davis (@scottyeye) from The First Purge. You already knoooooowww. Yes, Girl! hosts: Cori Murray @corimurray; Charli Penn @ManWifeDog; and Yolanda Sangweni @yolizama Producer: Steven Psyllos @stevenpsyllos Audio engineer: Chiquita Pascal @ChiquitaPaschal Music: Gold Standard Creative @gscdotnyc
