Anika/Boo Boo Kitty

Amazon

Some chill pills. Seriously. And maybe a copy of Machiavelli’s The Prince, so she has a better sense of political maneuvering, assuming that your real-life Anika also employs the same sloppy tactics.  Anika is played by Grace Byers.  She just released the book, I Am Enough, a great gift for your favorite Boo Boo Kitty fan.

Porsha

Amazon

Cat toys for her new office pet and ear plugs for when Cookie, or, his or her boss yells at them at work. Perhaps throw in some resume paper so they can get a new job.  Porsha loves bright lipstick just as much as she loves Cookie.  Buy your favorite Empire fan Taraji P. Henson’s Mac Viva Glam lipstick.

Becky

Amazon

More respect for being a dutiful assistant! Especially if you know a Becky who has a boss like Andre, who doesn’t exactly respect her.  Becky is played by Gabourey Sidibe and she recently released the book, This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare.  Buy it for your favorite Empire fan.

Tiana

Amazon

Pepper spray if it’s legal in your area, or maybe just some self-defense lessons so your Tiana friend never has to experience what actual Tiana experience in the lobby of Lyon Dynasty.  Buy your favorite Empire fan “Drip Drop” because the song never gets old!

Thirsty Rawlings

Amazon

What do you get the man who has all the gadgets in the world? Maybe just an Amazon gift card and see what crazy thing he digs up on that website.  Thirsty is played by Andre Royo aka Bubbles from The Wire.  If your favorite Empire fan isn’t familiar with The Wire buy them the complete series.

Lucious Lyon

Amazon

For the Lucious in your life, I’d say money in any form would be the ideal gift — cash, checks, gift cards, you name it. But if you feel like getting creative, a strategy game like Risk, Settlers of Catan, or Pandemic might be up his or her alley, too

Cookie Lyon

Amazon

Taraji P. Henson introduced the world to Cookie Lyon in Empire‘s first season.  Henson is responsible for a substantial amount of the show’s success.  Can you believe that she’s been an underpaid actress for most of her career? Get your favorite Empire fan Henson’s book, Around The Way Girl to learn more about her life.

Hakeem Lyon

Amazon

The youngest Lyon son enjoys the finer things in life. Fine booze, killer threads, and actual spotlight will do the trick for the Hakeem in your life.  Cookie Lyon is Hakeem’s mother on the series but his real mother, Andria Mayberry recently released a book.  Buy it for your favorite Hakeem Lyon fan.

Jamal Lyon

Amazon

For the soulful singer-songwriter, the Jamal in your life would probably enjoy an lined old-school music notebook. Based on Jamal’s new-found love of art, a blank canvas and some paints may stimulate his or her imagination. And if the Jamal in your life also falls in love with photographers, perhaps a new DSLR camera is on their Christmas list.  Jamal is played by Jussie Smollett.  Buy his first movie, The Skinny for your favorite Empire fan.

Andre Lyon

Amazon

Your Andre is a complicated, but spiritual and intelligent person. A snazzy day planner for 2016 could be the perfect gift, as well as spiritual book from the inspirational section of Amazon.  Andre is played by Trai Byers.  His wife, Grace Byers recently released the book I Am Enough.  Buy it for your favorite member of #TeamBooBooKitty.
Next up: Gifts for the rest of Empire gang.

Bow Wow On Empire

Was that Lil Bow Wow on Empire? No that was Master P’s son Lil Romeo aka Romeo Miller.  He plays Gram on the series, Tiana Brown’s new love interest.  On episode 3 of the show’s third season, “What Remains Is Bestial” Gram and Tiana perform their new hit “Love Long Time.” Hakeem still has love for Tiana so he decided to make a diss record aimed at Gram.




Hakeem’s diss record impresses his father, Lucious Lyon, who has called his sons out for being too soft.  Lucious takes his three sons to their old neighborhood in the episode to remind them that they are black.  We wish Bow Wow could have been in the van with Lucious and his sons because he needs a few reminders as well.

Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, recently stated that he wouldn’t appear on Empire because it’s filled with stereotypes about Black people.  The 29-year-old must have amnesia considering the fact that he’s appeared in numerous films that many would classify as stereotypical.

In 2011 the rapper played Byron in Madeas Big Happy Family.  Byron is an ex-drug dealer with a loud baby mama.  He is arrested for back child support because he doesn’t make enough money to afford all his bills.  We loved the rapper’s appearance in the film and we’re not sure why he all of a sudden, refuses to play “stereotypical” black characters.  That’s right, he’s not black.

While she made her acting debut in 1986, J. Lo’s breakthrough role was the 1997 film, Selena.  She hasn’t looked back since then and we couldn’t be more satisfied.  Speaking of satisfied, Jenny’s fans were more than happy after seeing the following selfie she posted on her Instagram account:

The singer and actress currently plays Harlee Santos on the NBC crime series Shades of Blue.  Harlee is a New York police officer with serious financial problems.  She turns to corruption and is forced to make difficult decisions because of her daughter.  Hopefully Harlee will work as hard as Jenny has in reality, to change her life and inspire others.
