Now that Idris Elba is officially off the market, we ladies have been left to mourn the loss of yet another fine, eligible Hollywood bachelor. We KNOW the number of single celebrity men is dwindling by the week, so thank goodness for these 15 gorgeous guys who are still up for grabs… for now. Catch ‘em while you still can, ladies!
Idris Elba may be off Hollywood’s eligible bachelor list, but Hill Harper is still on (and popping). The 47-year old Harvard alumnus is an actor, author, political activist, cancer survivor and most amazingly – a single man.

Jamie Foxx opened up his home last weekend and held a special fundraising event in honor of Trayvon Martin.
Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, were in attendance and they were joined by several celebrity guests including Harry Belafonte, Russell Simmons and Tyrese, among others.
According to Extra, Belafonte delivered a speech at the event and Simmons presented Martin’s parents with a six-figure check addressed to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
The foundation was launched in honor of the late teen, who was shot to death by volunteer neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February 2012. The event later led to a racially-charged case in which Zimmerman was ultimately acquitted of all charges in the death of 17-year-old Martin.
According to the foundation’s website, the purpose of the non-profit organization is to create awareness of how violent crime impacts the families of the victims and to provide support and advocacy for those families in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin.

The stars were out in Las Vegas Friday night for the 2013 Soul Train Music Awards. Hosted by actor Anthony Anderson, the focus for this year’s awards show has been to make it as much fun as possible. Now, the show doesn’t actually air until December 1st (on Centric and BET) so we don’t know if they succeeded; however, we know how they looked. Check out some of the photos from the red carpet on the next two pages!
”I want to go downtown and buy 1,500 tickets to this movie and give them away to the homeless.” Tyrese Gibson wants to “make sure the less fortunate can go see this movie.”
The actor talked to EURweb associate Fahnia Thomas about his new flick, “Black Nativity“ and why it is important to have faith based films in 2013.
“There are a lot of people giving up.” Gibson hopes the films message will “give hope to the hopeless, inspire the uninspired, and motivate the unmotivated.”
Nativity” is a contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes’ celebrated play of the same name.
“We all wake up every day with big smiles, big energy but most of us have real situations on our minds. Disappointments, issues, conflicts, and insecurities,” said the singer/actor. “There is so much stuff that gets exposed in this movie, I think it is going to force a lot of people and families to have those conversations they have been running away from because you can only be so busy before stuff catches up to you.”
Gibson said he was “honored to get the phone call to be a part of the movie because the ‘Nativity’ has a different heartbeat.”

These fellas can have us breaking our necks to see them at times, but when they open their mouths we think, this can’t be real. Between Chris Brown’s twitter rants, Wale threatening Amanda Diva, and other celebrity jerks we can’t handle the disappointment. These entertainers might be easy on the eyes, but what comes out their mouths is certainly difficult to digest. Click through 15 fine men we love to hate.
You know what they say, tattooing your lover’s name anywhere your body is not only risky, it’s said to be a bad omen for the relationship. We’ve seen it time and time again. Tyrese is the latest victim. Using some of that TGT money Tyrese headed over the laser removal place to have his ex wife’s name, Norma, removed from his finger.
And since Tyrese is the king of tact and decorum, he posted a before and after shot on Instagram with the following caption.
Finally got my ex name removed from 7 yrs ago from my finger….. The lady at the laser removal place said “It’s a stroke of bad luck to put your significant others name anywhere on your body…. Like the kiss death…. I’m gonna sleep real good tonight
Such a gentleman.
Listen, I know relationships don’t work out and you might even be bitter about it. But what good does it do to express said bitterness publicly, especially when the woman you’re referring to, also happens to be the mother of your child? It’s tacky.
Anyway, what do you think of Tyrese’s tattoo removal? Was he wrong to talk about it on Instagram?
Remember yesterday when we talked about Tyrese defending his Twitter persona and saying people only get offended by his love advice because they have these false expectations of him? Well it’s good to know even his band mates in TGT sometimes dismiss the self-professed love guru’s musings.
When the R&B supergroup stopped by our office a couple of weeks ago, they got into a pretty heavy discussion on love and relationships, with Tyrese and Tank talking about their desire to marry again and Ginuwine sharing advice on how he’s maintained his marriage to Sole for 10 years. Speaking on the breakdown that often occurs between men and women, Tank said:
“We don’t have the spirit of compromise totally developed where we can work cohesively as one. Where we can make those sacrifices on either end to make a difference in our relationship. As we get older and as we make mistakes and as we learn, if you’re smart enough about it, you get to take [those experiences] and turn them into wisdom which allows you to know, the next time around, the dos and don’ts. “
Not a bad observation, right? Well from there, Tyrese starting dropping all sorts of cliche sayings like, “Every man comes with baggage and every woman comes with baggage; can you find the man who’s going to stand there and help you unpack it,” and that’s when Tank and Ginuwine started clowning the 34-year old actor/singer, whom they’ve deemed “the human quoter.” Looks like we’re not the only ones who could do without Tyrese’s relationship advice.
Check out these three throwing jabs and having some serious moments in the video below. What do you think about their takes on relationships?
You’ve been to the “Vision Implementer” Twitter page right? That’s the timeline of actor/singer/model Tyrese, who is arguably one of the most controversial celebrity tweeters out there. Whether he’s talking about people being overweight because they earned it, or spitting Steve Harvey-esque relationship advice, Tyrese is sure to educate some and offend a lot of others, so when he came into our office with TGT, we had to ask the man of many talents why he thinks he pisses off so many people online. Here’s what he said.
“People create expectations of what your views and your perspectives are supposed to be because of the way you look and the songs you sing. People have created who you are in their minds already, so when you end up doing, speaking on, addressing, or doing anything beyond what people expect you to do, it’s going to shock them.
“I’ve definitely pissed some people off, but at the same time, I’ve had people in clubs walk up to me in tears, saying that if you weren’t as aggressive as you are on Twitter, with your raw, aggressive truth, I would still be with that abusive man.”
While that may be true, it’s hard for us to understand how a man who can be so helpful in that respect doesn’t have sense enough to scale back some of his nonsense when it comes to other situations. It does seem like Black-Ty, the name he goes by from time to time, is trying to do better, though. For instance, today he opened up online about his custody battle and wrote a little note to his 6-year-old daughter on Twitter, saying:
“My goal as your father is to minimize your exposure to dysfunction cause I can never assume that you are too young to be affected by WHAT’s being said or reading into the energies that.”
I guess we have to give him a little credit there, right? Even if he did call out deadbeat mothers on Instagram. Check out the full clip below as Tyrese defends tweets that have offended people. What do you think about the advice he spews?
“Sleep is for sucker,” huh? Well, tell that to Tyrese who wishes he could get more of it.
The solo singer and member of new R&B group TGT (Tyrese Ginuwine Tank) was at The Park nightclub in Washington, D.C. Friday night when he unexpectedly hit the floor. According to TMZ, he was literally in the midst of partying when he fainted. He hit the dance floor so hard he hurt his arm (as you can see in the picture).
A spokesperson for Tyrese told TMZ “Tyrese has been going non-stop since July promoting his new TGT album.” I know, some of you are thinking that’s only been a few weeks but adding on that constant traveling, it could be make for a very weak body.
Tyrese posted the photo of his arm in a sling with a caption reading that he just couldn’t wait to get back to his daughter in Los Angeles. He should be back by now and hopefully, able to get a little rest before he says to get back on that promotion train.
Your health is super important and although we may laugh and talk about celebrities, many of them do have grueling schedules (similar to many of us who work long hours or have multiple jobs) that cause them to rarely get a decent night of sleep.
Feel better, Tyrese!
“It’s the TGT remix!”
Sorry, I think of that line from the “Please Don’t Go” do over every time I type TGT’s name, but actually it’s sort of applicable here. Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank, have joined forces once again and reignited their supergroup known as TGT and today they’re dropping a new album appropriately titled “Three Kings.”
We wasted no time getting these handsome, fine, uber sexay, delicious, hard-bodied, oh yeah and talented men in our office to talk about a number of things (which you’ll see in another interview) but also what we can expect from their new LP and how they feel about their competition — if they have any — right now. Here’s what Tyrese had to say:
“R&B these days is insecure. R&B singers feel like they have to have rappers all over their albums in order to get attention, to get radio spins. A lot of R&B artists got their projects shelved because their labels would much rather put their money into hip-hop because nobody wants to not get a return on their investment. It’s a business. So for us to sell records and have this ‘Three Kings’ album be successful, we feel like it’s going to really make a statement and re-spark the interest in authentic R&B.”
Well, he’s convinced us!
