“They Decided They’d Wait For Me.”

Constance Wu said the statement above while being interviewed at the Academy Awards. Wu was already acting in a TV series when she was offered the lead role in Crazy Rich Asians.

The Victory Lap

Determining whether to write this or not has been bothering me for sometime now. I don’t consider myself someone who keeps up with music and/or artists.
