What does it mean to “mother”? In modern parlance, it means to serve, to be iconic, to deliver divine feminine energy in the way that only our favorite divas can.
And when you put two mothers together, you end up with a mother-off.
The concept recently went viral when a user on X (formerly Twitter) posted a simple question: “What is a mother-off?” And the internet had answers in spades.
A new season of ‘American Horror Story’ is returning to TV screens and bringing along a new face with it.
Or Whitney Houston.
Or even herself (on multiple occasions).
…Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett in Julie & Carol: Together Again…
…Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes…
…and Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand with one of history’s most iconic mashups, “Happy Days Are Here Again / Get Happy.”
Mixing in music always sweetens the deals, which Amber Riley and Naya Rivera proved by belting out “River Deep, Mountain High” on Glee.
Of course, that wasn’t Streep’s first rodeo. Just look at her and Goldie Hawn in Death Becomes Her.
Sometimes a movie doesn’t even need to be out yet to earn the title. Take the upcoming film May December, which stars Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore. Automatic mother-off qualification. For more proof, check out the newly released trailer.
And generally, any room full of actresses is going to make the grade.
