Our Spotlight Spinster this month is everyone’s favorite girlfriend and daughter of The Boss, Tracee Ellis Ross. Tracee celebrates her 43rd birthday today, and yet seems to just be hitting her stride with the hit TV show Blackish, a successful lifestyle blog, and countless awards and recognition as a style icon. Though she plays a married woman and Mom on TV, in real life she truly represents what it means to be a Spotlight Spinster by being single, fearless and fun. I mean, have you seen her alter ego T-Murda spit some rhymes?
In honor of her birthday and throw back Thursday, we celebrate her effervescence, authenticity, and joie de vivre with a special video clip from her 1999 MTV show Lyrist Lounge. Happy Birthday Sister Spinster! May it be the best one, yet.
