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!

Celebrity Crush

#CelebrityCrush-Dave East (@DaveEast)

It has been awhile since we did a male Celebrity Crush, and yes, we got your requests (LOL)! We decided to go the rapper route this time around and we are pleased with our decision to highlight the ultra sexy, Dave East! Dave is hard with his rhymes and tattoos and even easier on the eyes. As a true wordsmith he is quickly rising up the ranks of the rap world to become one of its elites!

Dave East first came on our radar on CBS’s now cancelled series, Elementary, in 2012, and then reacquainted ourselves with him on The Breaks in 2017. Dave has proven himself to be a talented actor time and again, so much so we were not aware of his rap skills until later. His mix tapes, Paranoia 2 and Karma 2 stay on repeat in our Apple Music.

Now, back to how sexy he is. The magnificent specimen of a man is inked from head to toe and we love every needle stroke that made him that way. Then there’s that very sexy body of his. He gives us the same feels as The Game, minus the inclination he might beat us. Dave just has the type of swag most guys hope for, but seldom acquire. Also, did we mention he is 6’5″? Yes tall, inked, handsome and DIVINE!

Clearly Mr. East has a lot going for himself and we are just enjoying watching him rise. Dave is just amazing on so many levels. The way he cares for his daughter, Kairi, is exemplary and beautiful! Lord knows we need more positive images of Black Fathers (pumps black fist in the air). Dave, we love you man, drop us a line!

However, she is as resilient as ever with a deep inner strength not even she has tapped into. Super mom, model, and super sweet, Veronika Obeng is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

veronika obeng

We have to admit Veronika came on our radar rather late and courtesy of our spiritual mother and counselor, Iyanla Vanzant, on her hit show OWN’s Iyanla Fix My Life. There, she sought help to move past her recent divorce and the stuck feeling that consumed her thereafter. We watched as she bravely not only worked through her own insecurities and demons, but learned the familial pathology that brought her to that place. She alongside, former The Real Housewives of Potomac star, Charisse Jackson-Jordan, “did their homework” and seemed to be better for it.

Besides being open and brave to work through her issues, Veronika is just one extremely beautiful woman. The only things that matches her radiance is her poise. She could very well be a real life “Raquel Lancaster” (see VH-1’s Single Ladies). The thing that captivates us the most about her are her eyes. They are so alluring and outright tell you “Yes, you want me.”

Veronika may have her claim to fame from Second Wives Club, but is her life and the legacy she has through her four little ones that will immortalize her. We love you V, if you are ever in Atlanta drop us a line!

We have to admit we did not know much about Henry prior to Crazy Rich Asians and we feel absolutely foolish for it! How can someone this hot and talented not have been on our radar. We digress. However, this film is his big break into Hollywood and propels him to becoming a leading man–a rare feat for an Asian actor.

Henry Golding & Constance Wu as “Nick Young” and “Rachel Chu” in “Crazy Rich Asians”

We had the opportunity to see Crazy Rich Asians a couple of weeks ago and we have to tell you it definitely earned that 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes! This film had it all–family, drama, comedy, and border lined on fantasy with its exotic scenes. As aforementioned Henry portrayed Nick Young, who just so happens to be a multi-millionaire and heir to one of the richest Chinese families in Singapore.

His girlfriend, Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) is unaware. Her life changes when she goes to meet his family and friends during a wedding. She soon learns what it means to be an outsider in their culture, and Nick must choose between the woman he loves and his family.

Henry is nothing short of suave and debonair as Nick and really pulls off the “Prince Charming” archetype the film set him in. He and Constance have amazing chemistry and you’ll find yourself rooting for their love the entire time!

We have to see we love Henry! He has the face of an angel, with chiseled features to die for.  Then that body of his gives us WORK. Whoever claims Asian men are not sexy clearly has not seen this beautiful specimen. You all just be sure to catch him AND his beach body this Wednesday as Crazy Rich Asians hits theaters nationwide!
