Okay so, let me explain.
Earlier this week I spoke to adorable child star London Boyce. London plays the daughter of famed actress/entertainer Janelle Monae in the new film Antebellum. In our conversation she spoke about what it was like to be in the movie, working with Janelle Monae, her new book and latest projects. And it basically made me want to have a little creative child of my own and sign her up for a load of artsy extracurricular activities.
London’s parents are doing an amazing job. She’s only seven and already an entrepreneur. In addition to being an author she owns her own ice-cream truck and has he very own Blue Bell Ice cream. Check out our convo below, and get your daily dose of cuteness.

Awesome, she was really nice!
Q. What was the hardest part of being in the movie?
I had to fake cry.
Q. And what was your favorite thing?
When I got to draw on set because I like to draw in real life.
Q. Speaking of drawing, what made you want to write a book?
So other little girls can read my book and feel special.

Yes, because my hair was very to hard comb and condition. But I like it now. The book is based on a true story.
