If I could plan my last day on Earth, I would want to spent it with Mindy Kaling. There's just something about Mindy that presents her as one of the most genuine celebrities in the business. Mindy Kaling's style is open, consistently humorous, and the way she speaks and writes sounds like a train-of-thought, this-is-how-it-is process. Audience is an important part of Kaling’s style, she writes for young adults about their lifestyle and world around them. She expresses herself in this way so others can realize that they shouldn’t take themselves so seriously. In particular, I think Kaling writes in a way to relate to women. She talks a lot about making friends, crushing over Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper, going to fancy celebrity events, eloquent alcohol beverages, and love of shopping (all relatable and entertaining things to watch and hear about since she comes from such a genuine place). She's funny without trying, she is honest about how hard she worked to get where she is today, and she's confident but not afraid to laugh at herself. Here's some facts, quotes, tweets, and clips of Mindy being Mindy.
1. Mindy graduated from Dartmouth College in 2001.
"Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn't always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine." - "Why Not Me?"
2. She's hilarious when talking about her dating life.
"When I have a crush on someone I pester them until they die"
3. Mindy Kaling is the first Indian-American to have her own network show.
"Effortless is overrated. 2015 is about being effortful. Way sexier."
4. She's not afraid to admit that life is rough sometimes.
5. She isn't afraid to make fun of herself.
6. She's worked hard and hasn't stopped being herself.
Mindy Kaling and her on-and-off-again boyfriend B.J. Novak are writing a book about their relationship. According to New York Daily News the book deal was set for $7.5 million.
'I will freely admit: My relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. The best way I would describe him is that he is my ex-husband, and we have a son who is away at boarding school, so our fighting can never get that bad because it would upset our child. I guess you could describe our relationship as a "romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments," but I don’t think Facebook would accept this as a new status.' - "Why Not Me?"
