Introducing The Cover Star of The Cut's May Issue - Tracee Ellis Ross
Through her seminal sitcom roles — first as Joan on “Girlfriends” and now as Dr. Rainbow Johnson on @blackishabc — @traceeellisross has truly shaped what it looks like to see, and be transformed by, a Black woman on television. @theestallion deeply understands this, and when they spoke earlier this week, she started their conversation with the words, “I cannot believe I’m fucking talking to Tracee Ellis Ross.” Despite growing up in Hollywood, the award-winning actress, beauty CEO, and daughter-of-a-legend has remained relatable, someone who isn’t afraid to share what’s going on behind the curtain during this new chapter in her life.
"What other people think about me is none of my business. Sometimes even what I think about myself is not my business. Opinions are like assholes: We’ve all got them. What I know is that I wake up every day trying to do my best. I know that my heart and my intention is in the right place. And if somebody points something out to me that I actually think is constructive and loving and I agree and I need to take accountability for it, I can do that. My selfhood and my sense of self can withstand appropriate criticism. "
