The B in Michael B. Jordan is quickly beginning to stand for Bae. Because, not only is he a fantastic actor, he’s also not too bad on the eyes. Which almost makes me cringe, because I remember when he played a young Wallace on The Wire back in the day and it makes me feel equal parts ancient and pervy.
Ok, I’m over it now.
These days, Michael has been comfortably settling into his rising star with stellar performances in Fruitvale Station and last year’s blockbuster hit Creed. But he’s also set for more box office success with the highly anticipated Marvel flick Black Panther, which will be released in 2017. With great success also comes unwanted side effects, and for many actors the dreaded “He Gay!!” rumor always comes a knockin’ with a rainbow flag and gift basket filled with condoms, lube and the Dreamgirls soundtrack.
According to Out Magazine, speculation about his sexuality arose somewhere online and Michael was not taking any chances of losing out on the potential pools of pussy waiting for him, so he took to Instagram and shut that shit down IMMEDIATELY!
Bravo, Mikey! Though, I must be honest, I never knew there was a gay rumor going around about him to begin with. True, this type of rumor has followed celebs like Tom Cruise and Shemar Moore around for the better part of their careers, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard it being said about him. And normally whenever somebody takes the time out of their life to address the rumor, it never really goes away as quickly as it would if they just shut the fuck up and let it slide. He must not have watched enough Sex and the City back in the day, because he would have heeded Samantha’s timeless words “First the gays, THEN the girls!” Actually, the fact that he doesn’t know that automatically puts him on the express bus to Hetero Junction.
But honestly, why do we even give a fuck in 2016 who’s gay or not? If you’re not, cool. If you are…..find me. In any event, all this did was make people question his sexuality even more because at some point in every actor’s career they’ll have to face the gay rumor. I guess the only way for him to prove he’s not is to release a whole bunch of nude photos. Or maybe that’s just to prove if I am or not.
Whatever. Here’s some pics of Mikey in various stages of hotness. And that’s something that everyone can appreciate.
