Gabourey Sidibe Owns Her 'Empire' Sex Scene

On the last episode of 'Empire', Gabourey Sidibe's character had a pretty racy rooftop love scene. Since then, it's been the focus of many 'mean meme's'. 

How does she feel? Initially she was a little bit nervous about filming the scene. but her costar helped her feel right at ease. After that, she just embraced her sexuality and went with it! The Academy Award nominated actress says: 

I’m really proud of the work that I’ve done. I’m really, really proud of it. I think the scene was really fun and lovely and sexy. I felt beautiful and I felt comfortable, and I didn’t look nervous at all, and I was kind of nervous so I’m really glad that didn’t come across.

What about all the hate she's getting?

Yes, I, a plus sized, dark skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime television. I keep hearing that people are ‘hating’ on it. I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked.

Yes girl!!!
