Taraji P. Henson took the world by storm due to her fierce portrayal of ‘Cookie Lyon’ on Fox’s hit TV show, “Empire.” Henson, 45, has since garnered the hearts, admiration, and wigs she snatched of fans all over the world. She has even received Golden Globe nominations for her role as Cookie [fingers crossed for a win in 2016].
Henson however, is no stranger to the entertainment world and if you’ve been following her career since the beginning then you know she has been putting her time in and she is finally getting her shine!
USA Today recently announced Henson as the Entertainer of the Year and we must say we can agree. She does such a good job at bringing her character’s to life and making us feel for them (whether they’re doing good or bad) and we can’t wait to see what she (and Cookie) have in store for 2016.
But Taraji isn’t just closing out the year with high accolades, she may also be closing out this year with a man! Henson was spotted on vacation in Miami with a fine young man by the name of Kelvin Hayden, 32, former cornerback for the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears.
We ain’t mad at you Taraji. You worked hard this year, you deserve it!
