Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)

have you ever read something that killed you inside? like a text message or someone’s status. everything was going fine until you accidentally came across something you didn’t want to read. or you found out something you were better off not knowing. it’s almost as if it was posted just to purposely hurt you. but you constantly read it over and over again to torture yourself.
Just spent the last 20 minutes trying to find a serious picture of Leo from the 2012 show…I have yet to find one.
Dude…get your shit together.
I love this about 2012 Leo. He’s still a kid trying to act like what he thinks a leader should act like. He is so sweet and idealistic and just wants to do the best he can — even though he seems pretty silly whenever he tries to be epic and cool.
