I’ve seen my fair share of celebrities. I’ve been living in LA for ten years, after all. When I spot a celeb, generally I make note of it, text a couple girlfriends — “Guess who I just saw!?” — and move on. I rarely get excited enough about seeing a particular celebrity that it warrants interrupting them as they attempt to go about their business, buying Tom’s of Maine toothpaste at Whole Foods. It just seems obnoxious. The only other time I’ve stopped a celeb and asked for a photo is when I saw Tyson Beckford at a pool party a few years ago. I approached him for a photo simply because he and I were the only two black people at the party, and so I figured he owed me. You know — to give back to the community n shit.
Anyway, I practically ran into him, pointed at him and said “you!” Then, I mumbled something about loving his work and something about being a blogger (who isn’t these days, MIRITE?), but managed to get it together enough to introduce myself and tell him to check out angryblacklady.com if he was ever so inclined. Then I asked some dude who was buying some sort of whatever if he would mind taking a picture for me. After the dude took the photo, Aasif was nice enough to stick around to make sure the photo was decent. Then I shook his hand and we parted ways. It was all I could do to not have a total fangirl attack right there next to the organic sunglasses.
And that, citizens, is the story of How Aasif Mandvi Made Angry Black Lady’s Day. Huzzah!
Sometimes you just want to look at something pretty.
After watching Alex “So Wong He’s Right” Wong’s kick ass hip hop routine with Twitch on So You Think You Can Dance last night, I got into a Facebook chat with some people about Asians and the hotness thereof. I said that Alex Wong was now in my Top 5. I may have to take that back because there are some hot ass Asians whom I’d never even really thought of or heard about, just lurking in the shadows like hot ass ninjas. (racist!)
Like this fucking guy. I remember that he starred in House of Flying Daggers, but I don’t remember him causing immediate pants-removal.
Okay, I'll do it! Whatever it is!
Sweet and Sour Jesus! (racist!) This man is staring right into me! I think my ovaries are wiggling. No seriously. They totes are. (Thank you, Jasmine!)
Snoop Dizzogg is the mizz-an. He made a vid-izz-eo tribizzute to Trizzue Blizz-ood. He dropped it like it was hot, picked it up, sucked all the blood out of its neck, and then dropped it again. ‘Cause when the vamps try to get at ya, drop it like it’s hot, drop it like it’s hot, drop it like it’s hot…
It’s impossible not to love Snoop Dogg. I just watched Season 1 of the L Word. He was damn good as Slim Daddy. Hell, he was damn good in Weeds. There’s no forgiving Soul Plane, though.
