If you're not obsessed with the original music that hit show Empire is serving you every week, then you're obviously not living your best life. While you're catching up, we present to you one fierce lady who is about to become your new spirit animal, whether you watch the show or not. 

It's the unstoppable Cookie Lyon, played the equally unstoppable Taraii P. Henson! She's street smart, she's boardroom smart and she's sassy AF! We've been slayed so many times by the Queen of Empire we thought we'd share our favourite moments. Watch your backs, Boo Boo Kitties!



There was that time she entered the room looking like a baller...

And you were like: YAAAAAAAAAS COOKIE! SLAYYY MAMA!

 

There was that time she demanded some respect from her son...

And you were like: If only I could demand this level of respect from my damn cat.

 

And there was that time she refused to settle for any less than what she deserved...

And you were like: OMG. This Queen has inspired me to go back to that burrito place, demand more guac. I HAVE NO CHILL. 

 

There was that time she sashayed out of prison wearing this leopard print ensemble...

And you were like: *starts group chat and invites everyone I've ever met* COULD I PULL THIS OFF AS AN EVERYDAY LOOK? Y/N?

 

There was that time she made threats that you KNOW she would follow up on...

And you were like: YOU TELL 'EM QUEEN! *snaps fingers in z-formation*

 

There was that time she had no time for Anika's silly lil' games...

And you were like: WHAT I WOULDN'T GIVE FOR COOKIE TO POINT AT ME LIKE THAT.  

 

There was that time she served the coldest side eye in the history of the game...

And you were like: *dead*

 

There was that time she served the best comeback in the history of comebacks...

And you were like: OMFGGG I NEED COOKIE TO DRAG ME RIGHT NOWWW. 

 

There was that time she was not afraid to call out the peasants...


And there was that time when she pulled this move 2.5 seconds later...

And you were like: OK. Wait... if I tried to pull that stunt in the club, I'd get kicked out faster than you can say "BOO BOO KITTY!" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ *does it anyway*

 

There was that time she dropped this truth bomb on all your faves...

And you were like: *edits every bio on every social media account I own* I am a student of Cookie now.

 

And there was that time she knew how to make the perfect exit...

And you were like: Yep. That is how I'm going to leave any and every meeting in the future. 

 

BYE FELICIA!
