Transcript for Taraji P. Henson on what’s next after ‘Empire’
Time for "Pop news" and we begin with "Empire" star taraji P. Henson speaking out and looking amazing. On the new cover of "Essence" inside opening up about saying good-bye to her character cookie after five seasons and when asked what's next, she says I just want to continue to work on me and be the best version of myself that I can be before I leave this Earth. Can't be mad at that. Good message there. She's also talking about the joy in her life. You know, she's planning her summer wedding to Cal Ving Hayden. She said it's going to be really small. I won't have a bridal party either. Nice and simple. She recently shared these photos on Instagram of her if I Ang say from Valentine's weekend writing in part my heart is so full of love and joy. The March April issue of "Essence" hits newsstands on she's got a lot to look forward to. Good for her. Congratulations to them. Okay, so now to a story that proves kindness wins. This morning people all over the world are rallying around quaiden bales, the 9-year-old boy from Australia who was born with dwarfism. His mother sharing a video that has now gone viral seen more than 20 million times and counting of him distraught after he was bullied at school. His mom writing, this is the impact of bullying. I seriously don't know what else to do. Now thousands are sending their love and support including Hugh Jackman who had this message. Take a look. No matter what, you got a friend in me. So, everyone, let's please be kind to each other. Bullying is not okay, period. Life is hard enough. Ah, that's sweet. That's really sweet. On top of that, so many people have raised over 200,000 to send quaiden and his family to disneyland. That's great. A sad story there but glad that mom is speaking out about bullying and 20 million views. Finally we have a "Pop news" update. So this time last week we introduced you to and shared the very first videos of the newest addition at the San Diego zoo. An adorable baby hippo. Baby but she's like 80 pounds or something. She's already making a big splash in her habitat across the internet so now we need your help in picking her name calling it "Operation baby hippo" and after many submissions and some suggestions from the zoo's staff we've narrowed it down to six possible names that "Gma" viewers can pick from and here they are. So there's poppy, petunia, Wilma, tumaini which means hope in swahili, amahle which means beautiful one in zulu and mwezi which means moon in somewhat hilly. All amazing options but can only be one so cast your vote and we'll announce the name next
