Michael B. Jordan was subject to Kendall Jenner dating rumors earlier this year and now, the actor is finally speaking out.

The Creed actor and Jenner was spotted leaving the 2015 Met Gala in New York the same time the famous model was exiting which instantly sparked major gossip. “It’s the world we live in. They see white and black. I don’t,” the 28-year-old told GQ. “Kendall’s a friend of mine, you know. I don’t know her, like, that well, but I know her enough. People’s perspective on that is what it is. I don’t f**king know. I don’t live my life to make other people happy.”

The rumors have since been silenced, but Jordan goes on to express his reaction to fans initially being bothered with the idea of dating a white woman. “It’s so weird, though, right? A lot of black fans were feeling like, ‘Oh, my God, he should have been with a black woman’ and that whole thing,” he said. “I get it, but on the other hand it’s, like, relax. You know — it’s 2015. It’s okay!”

Jordan added, “People can like one another, not necessarily from the same history or culture or whatever the f**k it is. It’s just the new world, you know what I mean?”

Michael is GQ’s latest cover boy and we are loving the photos. In the October issue for the men’s publication, Jordan takes on a slew of poses including, one with his shirt off. Yasssss!

Lupita Nyong’o Slams Magazine For Editing Out Her Kinks & Coils

Published

When will these magazines learn…

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

Read the full post below:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
