Mavis Staples can do what she wants. She wanted to sing and there’s almost no one better.  She’s in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Staples has also been a Kennedy Center Honoree.

She’s still singing and writing music. Her newest album, If All I Was Was Black, was released last year. This year, she collaborated with Hozier on “Nina Cried Power.” God willing, she will always want to sing.

Bob Dylan proposed to her but I guess she didn’t want to get married so she didn’t.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
