She looks like this and can actually sing, but somehow never made it to the A List. She’s 40 now, so I guess it ain’t happenin’.

I just looked her up on Wikipedia and was surprised. I always kinda assumed she was a light-skinned black woman, but it turns out that she has no African or African-American heritage of any kind. Her biological dad was a Filipino, while her mom is Polynesian and Ukrainian. None of this matters, of course, but the bias and inaccuracy of my own assumptions kinda jarred me.

Ukrainian?

C’mon. I’ve never seen her paint a single egg.

Maybe this Easter.
