Filed under : Entertainment, Lifestyle

Its Hump Day!


Lovin’ the covers of the upcoming issues of Ebony & Essence magazines. Really lovin’! Both are oh-so-yummy!

First is this super delish cover of Ghanian-Sierra Leonean-British demi-god himself, Idris Elba;

In the upcoming November issue of Essence magazine, Idris chats with writer, Dream Hampton about his first big break, fatherhood and what he loves about women….

“Skin, I love beautiful skin. I’m tactile, very tactile. A woman who has really nice, looked-after skin is such a turn-on for me. It’s always sexy….”

The actor / singer [yes he is!!], Tyrese Gibson, [actor, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon] and Isaiah Mustafa, [actor, Old Spice TV commercial], for the role of cartoon superhero, Luke Cage for Marvel Studios.

At a recent Sony panel for Ghost Rider, Idris Elba publicly states he wants to play Luke Cage;

Host: Are there any other comic projects you [Elba] would like to do?

Elba: “[Takes a deep breath and dramatic pause] Luke Cage, [he says in a deep voice, crowd reportedly goes wild]…We [Marvel] just need to know that you [the fans] want that.”

* Um, Luke Cage is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Luke Cage was one of the first African American superheroes to star in a comic book series….*yeah, I didn’t know either!*

Over at Ebony magazine, are some uber fab covers of Nia Long, who is 7 months pregnant by Nigerian-American, NBA baller, Ime Udoka….

According to Ebony:

In the November issue of EBONY (on stands nationally October 18), cover star and Black America’s sweetheart Nia Long, posed nude and gave an exclusive, intimate interview revealing details of her life never heard before.

We peeked inside her pregnancy diary and heard from the star about the shocking news that made her knees buckle, as well as how she and her partner, Ime Udoka, are handling the changes and bracing for a new chapter in their lives.

She looks AMAZING in this cover shoot!

Other Black celebs who have posed nude during their pregnancy include Halle Berry, Mariah Carey, Laila Ali Palmers, Golden Brooks and most recently Tia Mowry. Tia had this to say about posing nude during her pregnancy:

“I feel empowered; I feel sexy,”

Love it!
