THEY SAID WHAT? THE STARS’ BEST QUOTES

-

“With inimitable style and grace, my dear Godmother Miss Cicely Tyson made her grand exit to the heavens. She lived a remarkable life up to the last moment. A true pioneer, who bared her heart and soul so we could witness the spirit of the characters she so brilliantl­y portrayed, which continue to move and inspire generation­s. A Black queen who showed us how beautiful black is. The love between us was and is tremendous. ... She had just sent me her book that has been sitting on my nightstand where it will remain. … I can hear Godmother saying ‘ ok, now y’all can read about it, I’m going home.’ ” - Lenny Kravitz, mourning renowned actress Cicely Tyson, who died Thursday at age 96.
