Not My List....

People magazine put out their annual list of "Sexiest Men Alive" and once again it's a big yawn. And once again Black Hollywood is practically invisible...I mean, is it really a risk putting Will Smith on the list every year?

Out of the top 15, maybe I can see Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt (kinda the same ol' same ol' tho). Ben Affleck is even OK as he looks like an old fashioned movie star from the 40's or 50's to me....but there are 50 Black Hollywood stars I would name before them, and they definitely aren't Will Smith and Shemar Moore (who was also named, wtf?)

I am convinced that these lists, just like the casting of much of mainstream Hollywood, are done by 130 lb queenie Ivy League graduates in tight jeans and girlie Fall Out Boy haircuts. In other words, completely out of touch. I don't get why they fail to see why magazine readership is down, TV viewership is down, and movie box office is down. You know why? Generic, uninspired ideas with zero diversity is NOT WORKING.

Btw: this is who was named sexiest man alive:
Update: I forgot to mention that Justin Timberfake is on this automatic red flag that this list is one that I should take with a grain of salt.

LOL, This is so true.

I haven't seen the list
Ben Affleck? OMG he is so ten years a go.

I never buy those rags, but do they not choose the same people over and over and over again?

I would say I don't get it, but I do. We get NO LOVE. Matt Damon is cool and all (I really dig him), but this shyte is straight up ridiculous.

*loud blinks @ Matt Damon*

Wow, and it's such a diverse list...two black men and one asian. LOL Matt Damon?? They should've just put Brad Pitt back on the cover.

They've been doing this list since the 80's and Denzel has been the only black man on the cover. That's sad.

Now I'm gonna have to make my own list...sigh, if we want something done right we have to do it ourselves.

WHAT!??! Shemar Moore?!?!

WHAT!??! Shemar Moore?!?!

Shemar Moore is so Y & R 15 years Will Smith would make my list...but damn, how many beautiful black men do we have that could have made this list? 100? 150? 250? The whole damn list?! These folks don't know what they doing!

MsMarvalus said...

BTW, Matt Damon looks like my 12-year old son's best friend (who is also 12 years old)...GAFB!

Regina said...

Someone else posted about the list and had similar complaints. I havn't seen the list and do not plan to! Matt "non-acting/ no Talent" Damon1 Seriously!

Invisible Woman said...

Cooper: Agreed. It is the same list over and over, with maybe 1 or 2 new bland, forgetable faces tossed in. @ Danielle; I like Matt Damon too, and he was kinda sexy in the Bourne and Ocean's movies...I guess I was taking out my frustrations on him.

@MM and Thembi: having tangalicious Shemar on this list is just downright insulting, imo.

Danielle said...

Invisible. I hear you. Matt doesn't deserve the cover. No matter how cool I think he is. He just doesn't. It's all wrong. I mean where the hell is Idris Elba, Djimon Honsou, Gary Dourdan? Where the hell are they? Even though Wentworth Miller is an "Incognegro" did he make the list? LOL!

Invisible Woman said...

danielle: lmao @incognegro...I was really surprised when I found out he was biracial. He is fine as hell tho, and could have easily made the list, along with any of the other negroes you mentioned. I personally don't understand why Dwayne "Rock" Johnson isn't on one is sexier imho.

You and Bohemian Hippie Chick have the same taste-she mentioned those dudes as well on her blog. Check her on my blogroll..."Bohemian Abstractions".

IW - I will defintely check her site out. He is biracial and fine as hell. It's disgusting how good all those men we mentioned look. LOL!

Here's a plug for my site as well. I just started it.

Out of touch would be correct.

Maybe the industry as a whole will wake up someday, or maybe everyone will wise up and start investing in independent markets.
