Celebrity couples checker the gossip pages and are constant fixtures in blogs, and while their relationship ups and downs are chronicled for the world to see, we got to thinking about those A-listers who don’t have that special someone. They’re gorgeous, they’re talented, and they’re hopelessly single at the moment … and we’re genuinely surprised. It should be noted that we don’t think anything less of our single brothers and sisters who may be single by choice. This list is more to spotlight some truly wonderful Hollywood folk that we’re shocked haven’t been snatched up yet.


Idris Elba

If you haven’t already picked up on our love of Britain’s very own Idris Elba, please allow us to explain. He is wildly attractive, undeniably charismatic and down-right yummy. And he’s single. Something just isn’t right here.


Chanel Iman

Absolutely adorable. Yup, that’s exactly what Victoria’s Secret stunner and bubbly beauty Chanel Iman is. We have loved her since her tall, skinny self first strutted down the runway and we’re just itching to see her find Mr. Right. Sure there have been boys here and there, but it’s about time that she lands herself a manly man, who has his act together. We’re not going to try and play matchmaker here, BUT if a nice, young man like Trey Songz or Taylor Lautner were to come a callin’ or you want to go a callin’ to them, we say go get ’em, hot stuff.

Trey Songz

OK, this is a complete and utter travesty. Though rumors have swirled that Trey Songz and Lauren London may be an item, both parties have repeatedly denied those reports. While that doesn’t necessarily mean that there isn’t any hanky panky going on between the duo, we are shocked if it is true that this hot young man is unattached. He’s too yummy for that to be the case any longer, don’t you think? So Trey, don’t worry boo, we’re here to keep you company.

Zoe Saldana

The lovely Zoe Saldana has only been back on the market for a short time, but even a few minutes unattached seems too long for this talented beauty. Saldana has been in an off and on romance with equally attractive Bradley Cooper for some time now –though neither would actually confirm that they were in a relationship — but before the holidays, the twosome officially called it quits. While of course there is room for a reunion, we just want to see the lovely Saldana in a loving, healthy relationship.


Eva Longoria

Mexican-American actress Eva Longoria has amassed an impressive resume of attractive men, both in and out of Hollywood. But with that success has come some serious heartbreak. This fun-sized Desperate Housewife deserves some Grade-A hotness in her life. A man that will be faithful to her, have fun with her and look incredible with her. Fellas, anyone interested?



TV host, radio personality and all-around hot girl Rocsi is without a man. And that’s not to say that this independent woman needs one. She’s really hitting a nice stride in her career and we have no doubt that she’ll continue to take off with the quickness, but we are thoroughly shocked that despite all the celebs she has rubbed elbows with and all the cuties that have graced the stage at BET’s 106 and Park not one of them has successfully swept this young lady off her feet — except Eddie Murphy. For shame.


Camilla Belle

Tim Tebow-approved Camilla Belle is one lovely lady who deserves some good ol’ loving from an awesome young man. Hey, it’s not as if her career is really taking off, so can she at least get a nice young man in her life?


Kerry Washington

She’s smart, she’s witty and she’s drop-dead gorgeous. So can we please ask why Kerry Washington is back on the market? The Django Unchained star must be dating some real special ones (and not in the good sense) if they keep letting her slip through their fingers. She’s a true renaissance woman whose career is growing each and every day. Yo menfolk, let’s start treating this young lady how she should be: like a gem.

Laz Alonso

According to Wendy Williams this very morning, Laz Alonso is single. The extremely handsome Cuban actor was on her show to promote his new gig on “Deception” and he said loud and clear that he’s a single man. We doubt that will last long, but we’re surprised it’s the case at all.


Bar Refaeli

She has certainly had her share of desirable male companions (among them: Leonardo DiCaprio and David Charvet), but as of recent it appears that the beautiful Bar Refaeli is flying solo. Yes, solo. Yes apparently a good chunk of the celebrity male population is unable to figure out the best course of action when it comes to dealing with a supermodel who, get this, is actually witty and engaging. Hey fellas, we have a crazy idea: Maybe you should ask her out.

 Taraji P. Henson

She’s our favorite funny girl! How could no one have snatched up her gorgeous silly self yet? Perhaps it has something to do with the type of man she’s looking for. Taraji said she needs a cross between Brad Pitt and Tyrese, which we’re gonna go out on a limb and say isn’t too easy to find. But we hope Breese comes a’knocking soon.

Chris Evans

Captain America. He was Captain America. Captain America is single?!? On the one hand there is a voice inside us that is overjoyed at the prospect that we still have a chance. On the other hand we are really bummed that the lady folk of Hollywood and beyond have yet to scoop up this cutie. A ridiculous body, that adorable face and a personality that makes us swoon … yup, we are completely shocked that Evans is single and truly hope that he meets a very special lady (pick us, pick us) in the not-so-distant future.

Sandra Bullock

Few actresses seem to be as unlucky in love as Sandra Bullock has been. While we were over the moon to see her take ownership of her personal life and take the big plunge of adopting a child, we would still love to see her find Mr. Right. Yes, we’re hopeless romantics. And we’re not saying this because Sandy needs the help. She’s strong, smart and uber talented. She don’t need no man. But if her fairytale is going to truly be complete, Prince Charming may be in order.

Rita Ora

We’ll put a disclaimer on this one: If what Rob Kardashian was spitting on Twitter and what some gossip mags have reported is true, then we know exactly why this chick is single. She seems to have a problem keeping it in her pants. But if they’re wrong, and she is the beautiful, talented British babe we thought she was, then she is most deserving of a spot on this list. Ora is talented, bright-eyed and ready to take off with her debut US album expected later this year. Assuming she’s not the hussy some are trying to paint her out to be, we say she deserves a shot at love.

    Is it just me or does Madame Noire have way too many ads? I LOVE the articles that are written but I can never get through them with the amount of pop up ads, side bar videos, and mid- article ads. MN, please kill some of these ads. This is overload!

  • scandalous7

    Zoe will be boooed up with some white man again soon enough, no worries for her.

  • catherine james

    I though Evans was dating Minka Kelly, no? If only Zoe/Kerry/Sandra liked girls in addition to/instead of boys; I have crushes on all three. 🙂 And Idris is a modern Renaissance hottie!

  • Nevets Nonnacs

    I know sites like this, BOSSIP and others try to monetize your sites by littering your pages with ads and forcing clicks through articles… It’s too bad because I’ll never click-through or visit busy-assed browswer slugging sites like this a second time.
    USABILITY and ease of navigation are CRITICAL. Get help or get better. Damn.

    • 305MovesLikeDagger

      True, I am not clicking through 15 damn pages, aint nobody got time for that.

    • scandalous7

  • Kaori

    Is there something about these people that would make one belief that them being single isn’t normal?

  • am

    I really thought that Idris and Jill Scott would make a good looking couple after her performance a couple of years back on one of the award shows. He needs a real woman.

    • Kaori

      Are the women he dated before not real?

  • Sad day

    Unfortunately Chris Evans isnt single….hes supposed to be dating Minka Kelly *darn*

  • TeahMonae

    Idris Elba is not single! We just decided it would be best not to discuss our relationship publicly.

  • maggie

    I am suspicious that some of these men are single by choice b/c they want to take advantage of any pu-tang that they are interested in without having to answer to anybody,

    • TeahMonae

      I wish more men would remain single if they weren’t willing or ready to be monogamous.
