Kat Graham Appreciation Week | Day 6: Kat, the Inspiration

This woman is an inspiration in so many ways. Her strength, her philanthropy, her talent, and her perseverance are all such a powerful example for her fans and for anyone who knows about her.

For myself personally, this is how Kat inspires me. Kat inspires me to create, to make things that I think are beautiful in a world that’s sometimes not at all beautiful. She inspires me to fight for that, to work at it and hone it, and to never give up just because it gets hard or because someone tells me I can’t or shouldn’t do it.

She is the muse, she is the motivator, she is the one who brings us together. By being who she is, she shows us how to treat people good, and make good art, and hope the universe shows us some favor. (x)

Kat Graham Appreciation Week | Day 1| Favorite Scene on TVD Featuring Bonnie Bennett.

Kat Graham’s performance as Bonnie in 4x19 (Pictures of You) was probably one of those scenes I just couldn’t stop watching when it aired.  It was probably one of her most badass moments, showing that this is not someone you want to mess with. When Elena went up to Bonnie telling her that she should stop being a problem and tried to attack her, Bonnie touched her hand so quick and unnerved with a look of “Bitch Please, are you really this stupid?” on her face. That scene should have won an award. Before Bonnie had even given her an aneurysm, Elena stopped dead in her tracks. Yes, Bonnie did have the power of expression flowing through her veins, but I felt so proud of her. Even though she sees Elena as one of her best friends, in that moment, Bonnie put Bonnie first. And when Matt interrupted her, she didn’t stop because she felt bad for what she was doing to Elena, she stopped because she was worried about herself, with her words being “What is happening to me?” And we rarely get to see that.  

And of course, we all know what happened after that.  

Bonnie put the fear in Elena.

This is the thing; from day 1 Bonnie has always had the potential to be this strong and powerful witch. And yes, she has surpassed that title, but what I hate about it all is that we never got to really see her development and follow her journey with her magic.  With the expression, she was in about 1 or 2 episodes learning about it, and then 10 episodes later, when they finally have her back on the show, she has all this magic and this power. If the writers are going to use her to be available when people get a paper cut, then they should have shown us her character development.

Kat Graham Appreciation Week -  Day 1: Favorite TVD Scene Feat Bonnie  → Catch Me If You Can [4x11]

As well all know, Bonnie is rarely allowed to express her feelings about anything. But in those rare moments we get to see Kat set the bar extremely high for all the other actors on the show. This scene in particular demonstrated Kat’s rage in her ability to pull off rage and in the very next second heartbreaking vulnerability. Not many actors are able to do this, which further proves what a power house Kat Graham is.

Why do I love Kat...

Kat Graham Appreciation Week - Day 6 - Why do you love Kat?

Well, she is incredibly talented, she’s kind and generous, and seems like the kind of person you can’t help but be friends with. Look at how everyone on TVD just loves her…

And like Wendy Williams says, “We’re totally friends in my head!”

Oh, and she portrays my favorite TV character, that is a big plus in her column. : )

Kat Graham Week ♚ | DAY TWO | KAT: THE MUSICIAN;  FAVORITE SONG, MUSIC VIDEO OR MUSICAL MOMENT)

“SUPA DOPE” [X]

This is my JAM! I think my fave on her EP. It’s basically my “I’m feelin’ myself so much right now” song. When I’m starting my day, or going out with the ladies, I put this when I’m deciding what to wear or putting on my makeup and honestly nobody really can’t tell me shit, lol. I’m supa dope, funky fresh.

I was so disappointed that she didn’t get the opportunity to do an actual music video for this one. I know I’m late but I started it and I’m gonna complete Kat Graham appreciation week.
