If you are a Black Millennial and not watching HBO’s hit series Insecure be prepared to have your Black Card revoked! It is no secret we love Issa Rae, her #BlackGirlMagic is poppin’ from head to toe as she writes a series that shows the angst and often awkwardness of being a millennial and dating in the Twenty-First Century.

Still, just as much as we love Issa’s character, it is her best friend, “Molly,” played by actress, Yvonne Orji, we often find ourselves relating to.

Yvonne Orji is one amazing actress and VERY  easy on the eyes; and for all her talent, beauty, and uniqueness, she is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

Yvonne Orji And Jill Marie Jones

True enough, Yvonne first came on our radar thanks to Insecure, but we first saw her on the thirteenth episode of The CW’s Jane The Virgin where we first saw her and instantly thought about how much she looks like Jill Marie Jones (“Toni Childs” from Girlfriends)! Yvonne’s Insecure role marks her first major television role, and she kills it weekly! As Molly she is intelligent, commanding, decisive, and passionate. However, like the rest of the characters on the show she can be “insecure” (pun intended). When Molly dates, especially on the first season, you see all subtle things someone can do to repel relationships or attract the wrong type of attention. This season, however, she seemed to know what she wanted until a secret in her parents’ marriage rocked her resolve to find true love.  Now she is taking a different, more “open” route to love and happiness with her male best friend. You just know it is going to blow up!

Unlike her character, however, Yvonne is quite confident and secure. She is also a devout Christian and revealed a couple of days ago that she is still virgin and will not be having sex until she is married. We can definitely dig Yvonne keeping it old school and sticking to her beliefs! Miss Orji is one seriously sexy though–those lips, legs, skin, and body have surely earned her the attention of a ton of suitors. Any of them will be lucky to have her! Be sure you catch her every Sunday night on HBO’s Insecure, check your local listing for showtimes!

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!

#CelebrityCrush-Lloyd (@LLoyd_YG)

When it comes to music, especially R&B, there are are only a handful of crooners that always put us on the mood. When it comes to the old school, naturally we have Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, and Marvin Gaye. However, with the new school, there are always the vocals of Usher, Trey Songz, and most of all Lloyd to set the night right.

Yep, you heard us right, “Mr. Meet me on The Southside” Lloyd has our ears and our hearts whenever sings a single word or happens to cross any electronic screen. Lloyd is charismatic, talented, extremely sexy AND this week’s Celebrity Crush!

Lloyd has been active in the entertainment industry for over twenty years now and he shows no signs of slowing down. He first came on our radar back in 2003 with his albumSouthside. This single with songstress, Ashanti, had us romanticizing the south side of Atlanta and more importantly won our hearts. Lloyd later returned with an even bigger hit, You. To date, this is our favorite song by him, and definitely one of those hit songs that is way too catchy for you not to love. Lloyd’s latest albumTru, is set to debut on August 31st, and his newest single, Caramel, is available on all music streaming platforms.

Besides being musically inclined, Lloyd is one seriously sexy man from head to toe. The boy looks Black and exotic, with a mane that would put most lions to shame. If we could just lay in his hair….Then there is his body–tatted, fit, and on point. You would never know that so much awesomeness comes in such a small package. We think his smile, however, is his most attractive trait. It literally lights up a room whenever he is near. We have had the privilege of meeting him on a few occasions and we have to say if he wanted to get hitched tonight we would be all for it! Lloyd baby, we love you!
