My Celeb Squad

by - July 17, 2018

Have you ever liked a celebrity so much that you wonder what it would be like to hang out with that celebrity and maybe be “besties” with them? I have. If I a genie were to appear and tell me that I can form my own celebrity squad ala Taylor Swift, these are the people who would be in mine:


Kelly Clarkson


I have been a fan of Kelly since she was on American Idol. I just love her songs, I love her bubbly personality and I love how real she is. Kelly says that Meryl Streep is her spirit animal and I’d like to think that Kelly, along with the other women in this list, are my spirit animals. 

Here is a video of Kelly that show off her personality, her own vlog called A Minute and a Glass of Wine:



Taraji Henson 


Oh my goodness, this woman is just the most amazing actress. I’ve seen her on several movies and TV shows through the years and I am so happy that she is so popular now because of the TV show Empire and her movie Hidden Figures. 

I admire that she is over 40 and she is still killing it as an actress and still looks so good. I’ve seen interviews of her and behind the scenes videos of her and her co-stars on Empire and she just seems to be fun to be around.



Chrissy Teigen


I don’t understand why there are hating on this woman. I mean, they know that she can clap back at them like nobody else (just ask Instagram account @commentsbycelebs!). Then again, they might be hating just to get her attention and to have her clap back at them. I don’t know, that might be possible.

I love how real Chrissy is. She’s not afraid to share photos that are not edited, that show her without makeup and non-curated situations. She speaks her mind and she is not afraid to be who she is. I’d love to be like that.



Italia Ricci


I first discovered Italia Ricci when she starred in the TV show Chasing Life. I’ve followed her on social media ever since. A girl who loves her wine and pizza and is not afraid to admit she fangirled over Michael Bolton (who I also loved when I was younger). What's not to like?!

This is a person I’d love to hang out at McDonald’s with (because she loves their burgers so much they had it at her wedding) then work it all off later (or as she says, #eatitburniteatitagain).

Cardi B


This is one woman who I thought I wouldn’t like but when I saw her being interviewed on TV, I was just cracking up with her fun personality and how unpretentious she seems to be in spite of her success. To be honest, I became a fan of her work after I saw her being interviewed. She's just hilarious! It was the personality that drew me in! I’d love to hang with her!



Khloe Kardashian


This woman is my favorite Kardashian. I know that a lot of people are giving her grief for taking back Tristan Thompson, but I think the thing about her that I like the most is that she doesn’t care what people think. She will do what she thinks is best for her and her family. I love how important that is for her. It’s also inspiring how much work she put into becoming as fit as she is now compared to what she looked like in the past. 

Like Chrissy Teigen, Khloe is honest and calls things like it is and will not apologize for it. I love that! I’d love to hang with her just to get her opinion on things. Oh, and if she can teach me how to organize everything I have, that would be a big bonus!




Lin Manuel Miranda


The only man in my squad! Lin Manuel is such an amazing, creative personality. I’d love to be able to pick his brain and his creative process. I’d love to talk to him about a lot of things, like how he manages to tweet something inspiring every day and how he never runs out of things to entertain his fans. This guy is just a genius who is passionate about so many worthy causes, I can’t help but want to hang out with him!



So, what did you all think of my squad? Would you like to hang out with us?
