“If you gaze into the future…you might think life would be a breeze….seeing trouble from a distance, but it’s not that easy.”
Fans of singer/actress Raven Symone will be more than familiar with the lyrics above, as they are pulled from the theme song of her hit Disney TV show ‘That’s So Raven.’
Hailed for its comedic handling of topics its contemporaries ensured they steered away from (teen smoking being one of them), next January will mark 12 years since the show’s first episode aired, and eight years since it bid adieu to the world for good.
This year, in celebration of Symone’s career, Oprah Winfrey invited her to star in a ‘Where Are They Now‘ special, which saw the star reveal that she is tired of being labeled “gay” or “African-American.”
I don’t want to be labeled gay. I want to be labeled ‘a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled.I’m not African-American; I’m an American.
