Hey, everybody! Hope you’ve been well. Sorry I took last week off. I was completely exhausted after completing a bunch of back-to-back assignments. But I’m back with another edition of Craig’s Pop Life, a Black gay excursion into pop culture. It’s giving content, hunny!

Kierra Sheard on The Terrell Show
At the very least, you GOT to hear her gospel-fied take on Harry Styles’ “As It Was.”
