Theme:–The Year of ‘Uppertunity’ – Get Lifted!”
With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

It’s a little over a month away but the buzz is growing. The #1 Hit Show on FOX last season is set to return on September 23rd. Fans are getting word that things are going to be even hotter on the show. So as a preview, Taraji P. Henson tells Harper’s Bazaar magazine what inspires her appeal as Empire Vixen.

Lifting her wig during a photo shoot, Henson is quoted in theGrio.com as saying “We are vulnerable every time we put our art out there. Underneath that hair is my soul, and it’s me, it’s mine.” She knows that the best spark for the workplace grind that’s good for hearts and minds is bringing the right spirit to the office.

She’s become a fashion trendsetter but her spirit and work style are shaped by those who’ve inspired her life. Her acting chops come from studying Bette Davis. Her ‘Cookie’ character is influenced by her late father while her wardrobe is a throwback to the ghetto-fabulous days of Lil’ Kim and Mary J. Blige.

In her Empire role she’s like a mentor to her sons in the music business after she spent time in prison. A blend of street smarts, work ethic and life skills is what she hopes they’ll take away from her on TV and in everyday life. She wants them to be ready for the ‘big time’ and to continue on a path of big dreams.

Henson’s appeal even before Empire seems to have a common thread. She brings a certain swizzle to the drama. For the cocktail hour swizzle is about an intoxicating mix. But for the workplace it’s in having an inventive quality that makes performance ‘sizzle with soul’ and might help explain why she’s so hot.
