On the top qualities he looks for in a woman...

"For me, a lot of it is initial attraction so it's confidence first and foremost. I'm big on energy so I don't really have a 'type.' It's something about how a woman walks into the room where she knows she's the most lit person there because she's just that fulfilled in herself. To me, it's a sign that she's doing the work behind the scenes. There's some meditating, there's some working out, and internal work going on that she's putting within herself that makes her feel like that. I would also say, drive. I'm very tenacious so I love a woman that can match that vibe. And I like women who are interested and passionate about things that I'm not necessarily into, because it gives me exposure and I like to learn. This way we can support each other in our separate endeavors without them bleeding into each other."

On his ideal date...

"My ideal date would be somewhere that we can explore and get lost. Food that we've never tried before, which can be a hit or miss social experiment (laughs)! But for dessert, we'd go somewhere that's a surefire hit. But I also like to explore things so maybe like a helicopter ride overlooking the city. That would be fun."

On what he's learned from his last serious relationship...

"Just because you want somebody to grow and you're supportive in their growth, it doesn't mean that you get to dictate HOW they grow."

On his major deal breakers...

"Lack of confidence and drive. If we don't have that in common, our vibrations won't be on the same wavelength."

On the toughest part of dating nowadays...

"It would just be the rhythm in which I'm living my life personally. I'm just adjusting to the chaos of traveling back and forth and learning through all of that. So it's hard not to let that bleed into my romantic life because it's not the type of situation where I can build some stability or where I have the luxury of time to invest in someone I'm very attracted to. BUT, you have to remain open and understand when the opportunity approaches you. When you have a fine queen in front you, you can't play games with that."

On how he makes his special woman feel loved...

"I'm very chivalrous, I'm a gentleman. I know what side of the sidewalk to walk on, how to open the doors, and I'm a dad to a seven-year-old daughter. I'm used to providing that emotional support so I know how to care for and dote on my woman."

On the first thing he notices when a woman walks in the room...

"It's intangible, it would be her energy. I'm not necessarily looking per se but listening with my soul (laughs)! It's about being open to the energy she gives off."

On his relationship status…

"I'm very single. But the grind is BAE, so I guess it's complicated. But I am single!"

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
