Lupita Nyong'o's Reaction to Learning About Groundhog Day Is All of Us

It makes no sense to us either, Lupita.

Lupita Nyong'o made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night during her 'Black Panther' promo run and she appeared radiant as ever in a black and white patent leather ensemble.

When asked whether she was more excited about the Super Bowl this weekend or for Groundhog Day, the actress responded with neither, but admitted that she didn't realize that Groundhog Day was a real thing, and not just the name of that movie with Bill Murray in it.


Kimmel went on to explain the odd tradition to Nyong'o who seemed perplexed about the fact that the "holiday" actually exists. "So, someone somewhere in America has this thing...that they actually do? And people care?"

Our thoughts exactly, Lupita—I think we can all agree that Groundhog Day makes little to no sense.

She goes on to share one of her own superstitions: not walking over people's feet because it means they won't be able to have children.

Check out the video below, and in case you were wondering, the damn groundhog saw it's damn shadow today, so apparently we'll be dealing with winter for six more weeks in America, where apparently, rodents can accurately predict the weather.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
