So, I really like Empire, Fox’s new show centered around the Lyon family, headed by Luscious Lyon, owner of Empire Entertainment, a record label. Soon before he takes his company public, his life is turned upside down with the arrival of his ex-wife Cookie, released from 17 years in prison. Cookie, expertly portrayed by Taraji P. Henson, is the best character on this show full of drama, murder, illness, and hip hop. She steals every scene she is, from the first time she appeared on screen walking out of prison in a long white fur coat. Cookie is everything! Intelligent, a good business woman, loving, outspoken and assertive. I decided to make this Spotify playlist inspired by the fabulousness that is Cookie Lyon; enjoy!
