Lupita Nyong'o Is the New Queen of Sesame Street

Perfect human Lupita Nyong'o has made her debut on the American version of Sesame Street, and, as could be predicted, she's perfect.


In this segment, Elmo joins Lupita to discuss the topic of skin. We learn that not only is Lupita kind to monsters, but beneath Elmo's fur is red skin. Picture a naked Elmo. Do it. This is perhaps the most terrifying Sesame Street related fact I've ever absorbed.

Visions of naked Elmo aside, Lupita once again turned in an excellent performance.


Trough of Luxury

Lupita's so incredibly lovely, but the position is taken. Q.U.E.E.N. Janelle Monae is already reigning at Sesame Street — Vivat Regina.
