main attraction

I was watching this video and I was reminded of my attraction to this woman. I love me some Jill Scott. Always have. The funny thing is...she's generally not my type.

What I mean by that is that she's a + sized woman and I'm not generally attracted to them. But I am to Jill. I think she is very attractive. Now...she aint got nuffin on my wife but if I wasn't married...I'd get at her. I'm just attracted to her even tho she doesn't fit the "profile" of someone who I might date. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That's what I say. And I think she has it.

What about you? Who is the celebrity, entertainer, or regular person who you find attractive but they don't fit the "profile" of who you might date. I don't mean Halle Berry! We all know how fine she is. I'm talking about being attracted to somebody who will make your friends say..."what do you see in them?"

If anybody mentions Flavor Flav...i just might loose my mind from laughing too hard!!!

Kandi Black said...

Queen of My Castle said...

Oooohhhhhh, you are my homey for life. I love me some Jilly from Philly!!!! She is the business for real!!!

The Dreamy One said...

okay i will have to say Anthony Hamilton, he is not someone id be into,but id give him so play in a heartbeat,lol

Eb the Celeb said...

Sorry for you... Jill will be in BK for a free concert next monday and I will be there!

Eb the Celeb said...

Oh and for the profile... I would say

Larenz Tate... he is fine as hell but hella short so I would never date him in real life... and Michael Ealy... he is hella fine and I am not usually attracted to light-skinned brothas bu its just something about his gangsta swag

eclectik said...

Hmmmm...I'ma go with Chrisette Michelle



Big O said...

for some odd reason, i think that its the English chick "The Nanny"...its something about her...lol

B said...

I loves Jilly from Philly. I was just listening to her this morning. I adore Malcolm Jamal Warner. "You mean Theo Huxtable?" Yes, him....he does spoken word, plays the guitar and has a beautiful physique.

LOL @ Big O. Stoooop.

Beautifully.Conjured.Up said...

I know I'm going to get some flack for this one, but I'm going to say Travis Barker ( I love watching him play the drums). Ordinarily, I wouldn't go within 3 feet of him, but he is my celebrity crush.

Kay C, The Quiet Storm said...

Not my usual cup of tea, but my out-of-the-ordinary celebrity crush is Ken Wantanabe. Especially in The Last Samurai, his international swagger is priceless.

12kyle said...

@ kandi black
First! LOL

Lil Wayne is a funny lookin fella. LOL!

@ Queen
Jill is my girl. She can sing her face off!!!!

waitaminute...you never said who you like

@ dreamy
Hamilton can sing. I think he's short, tho. He's like 4 ft nuffin

@ eb the celeb
You are funny with your height requirements. You make it sound like you're 6-8

@ e
Good call! She's cute

@ Big O
Haaaaa! I know who you're talkin about. She's kinda weird but cute

@ B
Isn't it funny that he'll always be known as Theo??? He'll be 80 yrs old walking down the street and somebody will say..."Hello Theo Huxtable." LOL

@ Beautifully.Conjured.Up
LMAO!!! That dude has a gazillion tats and piercings. I hear you, tho

@ Kay C, The Quiet Storm
I'm gonna have to look him up b/c I never heard of him. LOL @ international swagger

L. Renee' said...

Hey 12Kyle!
I missed you while I was gone. LOL
I would have to say Robin Thick, and Kim Kardashian. LOL
I thought I would make you smile on that one.

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

Hey Brother!

I can't even think of nobody....let me see.....I'm clueless! But Jill is hot business...believe it or not I literally just gave up my ticket to see her on Friday....Dealing with situation with my stepdad and I ain't really interested in being at a concert...know what I mean?

Brad said...

I love Jill too. I think she has that spirit that draws you in.

But Sanaa Lathan was on Michael Baisden show the other night. Pure beauty. Amazing.

TravelDiva said...

Jill Scott is fab!

Johnny Depp. I prefer men of color and/or mean with some meat on them and who are very masculine. Depp is none of the above, but for some reason has been hot to me since 21 Jump Street. And yeah, I went back to 21 Jump Street.

12kyle said...

@ LRenee

whussup??? good to hear from you. you have been missed.

kim k??? oh lawd. lol

@ Keisha the Kitten
Keep ya head up!!!

@ brad
naw bruh!!! i'm not talking about chicks like that. i'm talking about random chicks. like marsha from floetry...not sanaa. everybody likes her! lol

leave it to brad to get it wrong. lmao!!!

@ traveldiva
you went wayyyyy back to 21 Jumpstreet! LOL

Rich said...

Queen Latifah and also Jill. Jill is so amazingly sexy to me, she definitely would get my attention if I were available.

The Jaded NYer said...

you know mine already- John Cusack! I actually wrote this whole post about him last year because my friends were always like "WHAT do you see in that white boy?" He just has this certain something that makes me all swoony...

But let me tell you, if he were to approach me, it'd be ON! I'd be selling our wedding and baby photos to People mag like JLo and them and not even think twice!! LMAO!!!

Kay C, The Quiet Storm said...

WHAT???? You never saw The Last Samurai? It's a great flick if you like action movies. And Tom Cruise actually did a decent job...I was shocked the first time I saw it.

You can catch it on the cable networks like TNT.

laughing808 said...

Ok, I know someone will clown me on this one but Dave Chapelle can get it......he's rather funny looking, but I'd give him a lil something and then we can crack jokes after.

Trish said...

Okay here are my out of the ordinary picks....

Mark Wahlberg - actor
Goldberg -wrestler
Batista -wrestler
John Cena - wrestler
John Salley - former ball player

Out of the ordinary, cause I never saw my self with a white dude and John Salley -theres something about his presence and smile that turns me on.
Oh, I forgot one... "THE BUS" Jerome Bettis, former football player. love those lips.

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

hard when u caNT SEE them in person to look at AL the azztrabutes
besides i dont klnow enuff to say

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

maybe EB
the Celeb

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

i would have to say boris kodjoe. he's beautiful. in fact, he's prettier than a lot of women and i don't really go for the ultra-gorgeous types. theyre nice to look at, but wouldnt want one cuz id have to be fighting the groupies off left and right. but id tear some boris to shreds!!!!!

TravelDiva said...


TravelDiva said...

And Trish--Batista--YES!!!!!!!!

-Q. said...

paula patton my man.. Paula "oh she so damn fine" Patton. Alot of class, and moreso poise. Love a female who dont have to take a step to move a room. She's captivating in all her movies..
Thought she was alicia keys once or twice two..

Uh: Dejavu, Idlewild, Mirrors, Swingvote..

And the sexxy girl I know. Got a crush on that ass too.

Anyways those are the -Q.'s crushes of 2008.

Im out.

ShellyShell said...

This is a good one. I would have to agree with PCD...Boris Kodjoe is the buisness but he started to turn me off slighty being married to that alien...Nicole Ari Parker.

For the lighter persuasion I would go with David Beckham and Matthew Mcconaughey...they could GET IT!

But my all time favorite person who would make me get busy in front of my parents...PRINCE! Good lawd that beyatch is sexy. Yes I know he's only 5'2" and I'm 5'8" but something about that dude! Remember he used to ALWAYS have a baaaad chick on his arm. I think that's due to him PUTTIN' IT DOWN!!Ok I'm done...as I go change my panties....lol!

The F$%K it List said...

If all of Brooklyn doesn't call in Sick, CJ and I will be camping out at Wingate field for the Jill Scott concert. DAMN THEM MAKING ME MISS ERYKAH,

Anywhoo my celeb crush that doesn't fit the bill is Wentworth Miller. I know he is half black but he is still a tad too light for me, but he is GORGEOUS so as long as the lights are off I'd be ok.

Smarty Jones said...

Well, interestingly enough, it would be Mos Def. The brotha is deep, but he is short and skinny and he mumbles when he talks. Plus he has that New York accent that I loathe.
But, he can get it. ;-)

12kyle said...

@ Rich
I've always thought that Latifah was cute

@ Jaded Santana
I remember you mentioning John Cusack two or 8 times. lmao!!!

@ Kay C, The Quiet Storm
I haven't seen it but i've heard that it was a great movie. Maybe that'll be my next rental

@ laughing808
LMAO @ you!!! Dave is funny. Funny...and funny looking.

@ Trish
I'm looking at your list with all of these white dudes on it. LOL

@ Torrance
Eb? Oh lawd

12kyle said...

The ladies love Boris. He has a brick shaped head. haaaaa

@ TravelDiva
Anutha wrestler. LOL

@ -Q.
Paula is sooooooo fine! I was surprised when I found out that she was married to Robin Thicke. She can get it!!

@ ShellyShell
Beckham has $25 million dollar feet. I'll bet he gets a pedicure every other day. LOL

LMAO @ Prince. Once he puts on his pumps...he's 5-4

@ The F$%K it List
He's fine with the lights off! LOL!!! Too funny

@ Smarty Jones
A lotta chicks dig Mos

Keith said...

I'm not usually into Big girls like that, but comedian Monique turns me on in a big way...No pun intended...It's just something about her that I find so sexy...And I feel you on Jill Scott
too...I find her sexy. I always thought Queen Latifah Was cute. I don't know...maybe my tastes are changing...Big girls need love too.

Anonymous said...

What's Wrong with Flava Flav? I actually find him kinda cute myself.

Keith said...

Who ever wrote that has got to be kidding...(That's why they didn't leave their name.) Oh my God...Flavor Flav??? Flav and cute can't be in the same sentence.

dessex said...

You know what I thought I was the only person who thought that about Jill Scott. There is something about her that is very attractive. I think it could be her persona and how she carries her self. Jill Scott is a very beautiful woman. Now since you already picked Jill.... I think Erykah Badu is cute in her own weird way. I think Kelis is sexy as well.

Kieya said...

i think u got good taste
Jill Scott is a beautiful woman

James McAvoy...that guy from wanted. I think he's fine. My friends all look at me like, wtf? I don't care. That accent gets me everytime lol

The Flyyest said...

flavor flav!!!!!

The Flyyest said...

he might not be the cutest out the bunch but his style and swag tops everyone in the game...

even tho my husband has a drug problem he is the truth!!!!!!

he is creative...he do shit no one has ever done...he do shit people think about but to crazy to actually do... thats what makes him LIL WAYNE: the BEST rapper ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!

disagree with me kyle and imma come down to ATL myself!!!! and it wont be pretty...LMAO

Anonymous said...

For me it would have to be Anthony Mackie. I know it's somebody else but I can't think of his name at the moment.

~Ms. Moore~ said...

First let me start by saying the main 2 objects of my LUST are A.I. and Methodman. I will fight all of you woman for them LMAO
But the TRUE LOVE of my life is Forrest Whitaker (even before Chuck D. Chuck is my soul mate). He has a humble aura that is kind, compassionate, honest and faithful just to name a few. I feel his aura every time I watch him on screen. I get elated just thinking about him.

Mizrepresent said...

Robin Thicke - oh yeah, if he wasn't married...he could get it...and i don't do WHITE.

Justin Timberlake - he ain't married, soooooooo, oh yeah, see above!

Ceelo - yeah he's short, may look like an alien, but that funk he puts out...just turns me on...I see me doing lots of videos, lol!

Eb the Celeb said...

5'8 is the new 6'8 so hush it...lol

12kyle said...

@ keith
Yes! The do need love, bruh

@ anonymous

@ Keith
Flav's momma wouldn't say that he's cute

@ dessex
Badu is weird but sexy. You never know what you might become after you get with her. Look at what she did to Dre3Stacks and Common. LOL

@ Kieya

James who? I gotta look him up. LOL

12kyle said...

@ Flyyest
You betta not be screaming for Flav. LMAO!!!

Best rapper alive??? Ok. You betta book that flight. He ain't in the top 20. LOL

@ Jewells
He can act. I like him

@ Ms Moore
I KNEW that you'd come in here talkin about Chuck D!!! LMAO!! Classic! Ever since I've known you...that's been your man

@ Miz
I'll give Justin credit...he's very talented

Cee-lo? LOL

@ eb the celeb

The Jaded NYer said...

whoa whoa whoa- I just watched that video to the very end... um... who's old boy at the end and what do I have to do to wake up next to him everyday???

Dione said...

Ahhh... I always had a crush on Allen Payne and my friends used to tease me because he has a chestfro and they know how I HATE taco meat on a man's chest. The same for Idris Elba. Fine, fine, fine and a beautiful accent but I saw the beginnings of some Taco Bell on that chest... I CANNOT cuddle with that!

Stew said...

i always had a thing for Donna off that 70's show. she has always been HELLA sexy to me. tall with red hair. i do not know what it is, but red hair does something for me

too bad she dyed it blond. she still sexy though

12kyle said...

@ jaded santana
i dunno who that dude is. maybe he's her cuzin or sumthin

@ dione
LMAO @ the taco hair

@ Stew
I agree! She's kinda cute
