Michael B Jordan Covers GQ

mbj14

UTS favorite Michael B Jordan is promoting a new film (‘Creed’) by covering GQ (his 2nd cover) magazine’s October issue.

The lengthy article, however, doesn’t exactly paint Jordan in the most flattering light.

He sounds more than a little douchey talking about wanting people to forget about that other Michael Jordan when they hear his name and his fans ‘disappointment’ on his colorblind dating stance.

“It’s the world we live in,” the October cover model told GQ magazine. “They see white and black. I don’t. A lot of black fans were feeling like, ‘Oh, my God, he should have been with a black woman’ and that whole thing,” the Fantastic Four star said. “I get it, but on the other hand it’s, like, relax. You know – it’s 2015. It’s okay! People can like one another, not necessarily from the same history or culture or whatever the f— it is.”

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m tired of the culture wars. It’s exhausting opening up Twitter every day to find another celebrity being dragged for comments that don’t live up to our idealized version of them.

Would I prefer MBJ be a good guy/role model? Of course.

But MBJ is merely an on-screen fantasy and he owes absolutely nothing to his fans or admirers but doing good acting work.

The End.

  1. Modeling could have been a backup plan for him. He is truly a fine ass man. His lips, skin, body, etc. As far as who he dates as long as they have mutual respect for each other then its all good. Such a classy gentleman, type of dude you would introduce your sister to. Love him.

  2. I’m glad he doesn’t see color, white people still do though- wonder if he’ll change his mind if the same event that happened to Wiz and the cops happens to him?

  3. I honestly don’t get how any of what he said was “controversial” in the least, at least that excerpt you posted. Y’all are going to have to help me out. Did he ever say or even imply that he doesn’t date black women? Did he ever say of imply that racism isn’t a problem anymore? Because if he didn’t, the criticism of this interview is totally illegitimate and can be thrown away like trash.

    1. In addition to the quote I re-published from GQ some fans thought his remarks were sexist and racially insensitive. He then allegedly used his Snapchat to state “All Lives Matter” & Black Twitter used his GQ quotes about interracial dating to call him out.

      Not included in my post is this quote: “I understand what females want and need, you know. I’m good at that. I don’t know if I’m the guy to give it to them right now. I’m emotionally unavailable. Until I find something that’s so undeniable that I can’t help myself. Other than that, I need to work on making sure my mom is okay. That’s all I care about, honestly. Females, they come and go.” > Some took issue w/ his usage of the word female as dismissive or misogyny. (I disagree btw)

      I think that covers most of the ‘controversy’ from last week lol
      As I mentioned in the above post, MBJ owes them absolutely nothing & I don’t find his comments offensive but some fans (mostly women) took issue.
