Model Don Benjamin On Jeremy Meeks: It’s Just A Mug Shot

Published

on

Jeremy Meeks, the felon whose mug shot went viral has gained world wide attention for his oh so steller looks. The 30-year-old, who was taken into custody last week, has also received recognition from huge modeling agencies looking to possibly sign the felon as soon as he gets out of the pin. But does Meeks have what it takes to be a top model?

While on the red carpet for the 27th annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards, HipHollywood caught up with rapper and former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Don Benjamin to get his reaction on Meeks’ potential modeling career.

“He took a good mug shot,” he told us. “[But] It’s more than just good looks and pretty eyes. You have to have body posture, you have to have confidence. Some people aren’t really photogenic. I see a lot of attractive people but they can’t pull it off in the pictures. So I have to see more than just that one mugshot,” he told us.

The “Across the Sky” rapper added, “I hit my agent up and I was like ‘yo, everybody wants him, but he’s behind bars. They might as well take me, put me on since I have green eyes and light skin,'” he told us. “People keep hitting me on Instagram like “omg you look like Jeremy Meeks.’ I don’t see it, we are just light skin with green eyes.”

We say there is room for the both of you. Swoon.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
