If they left it up to us we would never let these guys shave. Some men just look better with hair on their face and we love when they do. A bare face just doesn’t have the same rugged sex appeal that only beards can give. Here are 15 celebrity men we prefer to see with beards.

"Chris Brown pf"


Chris Brown

R&B singer Chris Brown knows his fans and the media hang on to every move, word and tweet, so when the “Don’t Judge Me” singer took to his twitter page recently, he must’ve known it’d start a fire storm. Hinting at retiring from music, Brown tweeted that his upcoming “X” album will probably be his last. He later said, “Being famous is amazing when it’s for ur music and talent. I’m tired of being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18. I’m cool & over it!” Brown has faced a backlash ever since he brutally attacked his then girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009.

Kristen Stewart Pulls Out Of Movie When Will Smith’s Cast As Love Interest; Thinks He’s A Bit Too Old

I smell a racist…

Kidding! I kid, I kid. That baby isn’t a racist. But seriously, when you think of on-screen chemistry, you probably wouldn’t think that Kristen Stewart and Will Smith could create the spark necessary to carry a movie together. And that seems to be what popped in Stewart’s head recently when she decided to pull out of the new movie Focus starring Will Smith, not because of scheduling conflicts, but because her would-be co-star is too old for her to make love work on-screen. Here’s the skinny:

According to the Huffington Post, the movie is a “con-artist caper.” Here’s the plot according to the Hollywood Reporter:

“Focus is a two-hander about a con man who becomes romantically involved with a novice. He is then thrown off his game when the former flame shows up just as he’s staging an elaborate con in Buenos Aires.”

The movie was originally set to star Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. However, when both actors had to pull out of the project because of other commitments, they were replaced with Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck and Twilight star Kristen Stewart. At one point, Stewart was pretty geeked up about the movie, telling the HuffPo “It’s a comedy. I’m really excited about it.”

Well, she was excited about it until Affleck had to dip out of the movie as well to star in a different picture last December. When the role was finally given to Will Smith, who signed on early this year, it was reported by the Hollywood Reporter in April that she had decided to part ways from the movie. Why? According to Variety, she felt “the age difference between [her and Smith] would be too large a gap.” To clarify, Stewart is 23 while Smith is 44. When Affleck was attached to the movie, she was excited, even though the age difference between them was still substantial–he’s 40.

All of this is interesting considering that just a year ago, Stewart was receiving all kinds of hell from folks for cheating on Robert Pattinson, 27, with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, who is 42. Age ain’t nothin’ but a number Kristen! Especially for her. But honestly, all I want to know is how can you call yourself an actor or actress and pass on a movie because you can’t feign attraction? But then again, the only emotion Stewart is a pro at showing is straight melancholy. Oh well…

White Folks Black People Love, Part 1

white people black people love pt. 1

Two years ago we made a short list of white people black people love — shout out to the best man on that list, Abraham Lincoln — but now it’s time for an update. We know the world is multi-cultural now and everything isn’t seen in black and white anymore, but you can’t deny that there are some lily white Caucasians that black folks have taken and adopted as our own. Whether it’s a singer who sounds soulful or a designer making bags we can’t live without, we absolutely adore the white people on this list.


Oh and part 2 to come tomorrow!

Guess Which Celeb Gabourey Sidibe Would Sleep With (And Make Sure She’d Wrap It Up Because He’s Fertile!)

Gabourey Sidibe is officially the dirty 30 (as of May 6) and Wendy Williams invited the actress to plenty of dirty talk during her appearance on her talk show today.

Wendy put the upcoming co-star of “American Horror Story” in her hot seat and didn’t waste any time getting turning up the heat with four degrees of questions. By the time Wendy got to the 40 degree mark, she hit Gabourey with this interesting quest into her thoughts on her former male co-stars: “Out of all of your former co-stars — Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Lenny Kravitz — who would you marry, who would you sleep with, and who would you run over with your car?” Here’s what Gabby said:

“I would marry Lenny Kravitz because I feel like he’s a good strong Christian man – with his own island. I’d probably  sleep with Eddie Murphy, but I’d wrap it up because he’s fertile. And I guess I’d hit Colin Ferrell with my car—nothing personal but I don’t know him like that.”

Poor Colin Ferrell, he wasn’t even supposed to be in the discussion. But more importantly, Eddie Murphy?? To be fair, it’s not like Gabby had the best choices to begin with, but I think I would’ve had to choose Lenny Kravitz twice, or switch my answers around. I’m pretty sure Eddie could buy his own island if he wanted to too. But, shout out to Gabby for the safe sex plug. Always gotta wrap it up.

Something you ladies might be able to relate with more is the answer Gabourey gave for her 100 degree question of who she would have a one-night stand with. The answer? Ryan Gosling. Good luck with that, she might have to fight off a few hundred thousand people to get to that one, including Eva Mendes.

Check out Gabby’s full appearance on Wendy below. What do you think about her hot seat answers?

So Why Isn’t My White Boy Crush Ryan Gosling People’s “S*xiest Man Alive” Already?

As you all know, People magazine released its S*xiest Man Alive issue yesterday with Channing Tatum as its man of honor. We are certainly not mad at that. Tatum is fine as all heck, and he certainly embodies a pleasant masculinity and swagger that Black women like ourselves can certainly appreciate.

Having said that, it was surprising to see that our ultimate white boy crush Ryan Gosling missing from the top spot. But it didn’t take long to realize why. The reason why I crush on Gosling is the reason that he’s not People’s golden boy: he’s way too manly for that. As a friend who works at People told me, Gosling won’t go along with the photo-shoot and interview involved with being adorned as the cover boy. This tidbit of info just raised his stock in my mind. As someone who appreciates manly men, I’ve always known that I can’t be too into men in the entertainment industry. Just imagining a male actor or rapper posing for these long photo shoots for a magazine spread kind of turns me off. There’s something about a man craving the limelight and attention in that way that undermines my attraction. A manly man is someone who does his job without any concern for attention. I know that Gosling does engage in publicity events for his films but there’s something to be said about him turning down on offer to take on such a pretentious cover and proclaim “I’m the s*xiest man alive.” And for that, I thank him for keeping it all the way swexy. Ryan, you will always be my #1 white boy crush. Keep brooding my brother.


Is Ryan Gosling Singing Jodeci!? 9 White Celebrities And Their “Blackest” Moments

Someone once told me that imitation was the sincerest form of flattery. That was a long time ago, back when I was still wearing overalls and those clear sandals with the glitter on them, but it still rings true. Prime examples are when other cultures tan their skin, lock their hair, wear baggy garb and more. Over the past few decades, some of our favorite white celebrities and public figures have decided to do everything from rap, do black hair, wear grills and array of other very interesting things. A lot of these moments had us laughing more than we thought we would, and because of that, they deserve some recognition. Here’s a few white celebrities having some very “black” moments. And before you get your panties in a knot, these folks were having good, positive fun. Nothing offensive.


Natalie Portman

Before showcasing ballet skills as the black swan in Black Swan, SNL featured Natalie Portman, Harvard graduate and acclaimed actress, as a fiery and explicit rapper who took turned an innocent interview into a three minute opportunity to endorse drug and alcohol usage, threaten about a dozen people with bodily harm (and to go number two on their face), send love to Eazy-E and reject her fans. Done in good fun, the petite actress’ attempt at gangster (or “gangsta”?) was generally well-received.
