They say “Black don’t crack.” They are right, it only ages like fine wine, or gets better liked seasoned meat! In this case our latest piece of meat–we mean Celebrity Crush–is none other than one of the greatest actors alive, Hill Harper!

Hill has been in the industry for almost twenty-five years; acting, educating, and making moves so magnificent few can match his swag! It is hard to believe he is fifty-one years young!

Born Francis Eugene Harper, he adopted the name “Hill” as a tribute to both his maternal and paternal ancestors. Hill hails from Iowa City, Iowa, and is the son of a psychiatrist and one of the first African-American anesthesiologist in the country. He has been acting since the age of seven and graduated at the top of his class from Brown University, and later Harvard Law School. Despite earning three Ivy League degrees he moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of an acting career. Naturally, Hill excelled here too earning a recurring role on Married…With Children, and later a major role on Spike Lee’s Get On The Bus. Currently he stars in ABC’s new hit series, The Good Doctor.

Since then Hill has become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars and even a celebrated author. His books, Letters To A Young Brother and Letters To A Young Sister, are best sellers! Hill now tackles a new challenge in life after adopting a young boy, but we are sure he will be an excellent father too.

The sexiest thing about Hill is his smile! The man is gorgeous and puts most men half his age to shame. We have had the privilege of meeting a few times in person and have to say he looks a million bucks and smells like Heaven. His walk is one of confidence and we just know those tailored suits hides the body of a king. Yes, we are still watching Hill Harper and trust that we are loving every minute of you!

Kylie has been making some serious moves and had some even more major life changes in recent years. The little girl we grew up watching on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) has blossomed to be one “bodacious babe” and business mogul. Yes, we did not stutter–Kylie is a business tycoon! Her makeup and beauty lines routinely break records with their sales, crashing websites, and making pre-orders and back orders the new normal. In fact, according to Forbes Magazine she is worth 800 million dollars and is fast tracked to become the youngest billionaire in history–male or female!

Just 20 when this story publishes (she’ll turn 21 in August) and an extremely young mother (she had baby daughter Stormi in February), Jenner runs one of the hottest makeup companies ever. Kylie Cosmetics launched two years ago with a $29 “lip kit” consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner, and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330 million in 2017. Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.

All we can say is MUST BE NICE! Kris Jenner proves yet again to be the greatest manager on the planet after cultivating her baby’s career into all of this. The only thing just as nice is her BODY! Kylie has curves and we are here for them! Her shape has definitely earned her the attention of a few A-List rappers and shot out her super cute baby girl, Stormi. We would talk about her voluptuous lips but as of this week “them Kylie Jenner lips,” as Travis Scott so eloquently spat, are no more. Ms. Jenner got her lip fillers removed and she is even badder than she was before. Kylie is out her living her best life, and honestly we are A-OK watching her rise! Keep making those money moves love!

Indya Moore as “Angel” in FX’s “Pose”

Indya first came on our radar in the aforementioned series Pose as “Angel.” Here she is a transgender woman living in the eighties at the onset of the AIDS epidemic. Angel is a child of Elektra Abundance, the house mother and leader of the House of Abundance, one of the legendary houses on the gay ballroom scene. Later, after being rejected and humiliated she reunites with her former house sister, Blanca (MJ Rodriguez), and joins her house, the House of Evangelista. Angel is known for being able to pass better than most transgender women at the time as biological woman, but that does not stop her from having the life and family she dreams of. Her begins to change, and in some ways, complicate even more when she catches the eye of an upstart businessman who desires to possess her.

Pose may currently be where Indya is most recognized, but her previous short films, and her most recent indie film Saturday Church, really show her flexing her acting muscles. Indya continuously proves she is here to stay and we are here for it. It also helps that she is so beautiful. This woman has features models would die for and she looks flawless. We love her lips the most! Somebody PLEASE get this girl a contract with Cover Girl, Maybelline, MAC, or somebody!

Luke Cage is back! Yep the Marvel and Netflix series that is making Summer 2018 epic has returned with new challenges, familiar social issues, and a new super villain for Harlem’s resident bulletproof superhero to contend with, John McIver aka “Bushmaster!” We have to admit when we first heard that this was the villain Luke would go up against we had our reservations, but after seeing Mustafa Shakir take over the role, we are, well, SMITTEN! That is why he’s this week’s “Celebrity Crush!”

Luke Cage is back! Yep the Marvel and Netflix series that is making Summer 2018 epic has returned with new challenges, familiar social issues, and a new super villain for Harlem’s resident bulletproof superhero to contend with, John McIver aka “Bushmaster!” We have to admit when we first heard that this was the villain Luke would go up against we had our reservations, but after seeing Mustafa Shakir take over the role, we are, well, SMITTEN! That is why he’s this week’s “Celebrity Crush!”

 Mustafa hails from Harlem and first came on our radar during his Luke Cage (Mike Colter) run, however, he is no stranger to major acting having appeared in television shows and films like  The Deuce, Brawl In Cell Block 99, Quarry, and Untitled Symphony. He is also a writer and director haven written and created a  number of short films. Mustafa brings a unique swag to whatever character he portrays, not only making the characters relatable, but inspiring.

Yes, Mustafa is talented. That is as easy to see as his amazing resume. However, the man is definitely blessed in the looks and body departments as well. In fact, we are wondering why we did not see him in Wakanda during Black Panther’s coup. He easily could have portrayed Eric Killmonger or M’Baku, The Man-Ape. He has the stature, build, and look that says “I wish a n**** would!” He is still a bad ass Bushmaster in the series though, as his character boasts amazing skills in the fighting style of savate, cunning, nearly impenetrable skin, and superhuman strength comparable to Luke Cage’s! He is using all of his skills not just to take over Harlem and put Luke down, but put an end to (Black) Mariah’s (Alfre Woodard) reign over the neighborhood.

Being that this is #MelaninMonday we find his smooth, dark skin most alluring as it only makes his eye color–avery with hints of blue–POP! We definitely need to know his workout regimen too because his body is also like Reddenbaucher–hot, buttery, and poppin’!

We will let you all be the judge though! Sound off in the comments below and be sure you binge watch Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage, streaming now on Netflix!
