"Delete your ex's nudes - you no longer have consent to look at their naked body."
Kiara Delacroix, perhaps better known by her Instagram moniker @EatingBoys, is easily one of our favorite babes on Instagram. The bubble-gum blushed anime aesthetic of her online world is studded with sharp, witty, poetic captions, pop culture references, and dreamy self-portraits. Delacroix is a master at subverting her own image. She seamlessly reclaims control of both the viewer's gaze and her online persona. Through her imagery, EatingBoys commands space. The stories she weaves throughout her posts explore the body, feminism, slut-shaming, empowerment, and of course, the delicious ecstasy and agony of modern love. In an interview by Lena Dunham for Glamour Magazine, Delacroix remarks, "...if you really look at my Instagram, I never show much skin except for my cleavage - I've created this sexual character with zero nudity." Outside of her enigmatic Instagram persona, Kiara Delacroix remains largely anonymous. Find her on Instagram: @EatingBoys Watch her full interview
"You Ain’t Gang If You Can’t Make Me Nut"
Brittnee (aka BbyMutha) is the mother we wish we had (no offense, mom!). Probably the world's coolest rapper and full-time mom, she keeps it real juggling two sets of twins and managing an exploding international rap career. The Chattanooga artist has been hard at work on her debut album, Christine, touring the globe, and showing these hoes how it's really done. Her music is sharp, electrifying, infectious and bold. She raps about the hustle of motherhood, sex, frustrations about shitty dudes, and the black female experience. BbyMutha's moniker reclaims an insult once hurled at her by a woman whose boyfriend had been cheating on her with Brittnee. "It's not an insult to me," she tells The Fader in a March 2018 interview, "Some of us are babies' mothers. Not everyone is a wife, and not everyone aspires to be a wife."
