You, Sir, Are a Problem: Reasons #596 & #597 Why We Need to Move to the UK- Toya

I will be the first one to admit that I am not a lover of all things British as Tia is but oooooh do I appreciate a fine British man. The fact that I don't have a passport yet may not be so much out of procrastination as it is me trying to protect my situation. With that being said, I need to get on it soon. BGLU is long overdue for an international trip. If there are more like these two gentleman across the pond, I need to make that happen.

I know I said on The Twitter that I was NOT doing a rundown on the tragedy that was last night's BET Awards but I do have to mention one of the few shining moments.  Jill Scott, who is always FIERCE gave a great performance of "Rolling Hills" off of her new album The Light of the Sun. Her performance featured none other than the only man who could rightly legally change his name to God's Gift to Women, Idris Elba.

Yes Lawd!!! I didn't quite catch his accent during this performance but let's face it. He doesn't really need to say much anyway. Especially when he's in a suit.

Thanks to one of our readers, Alison, we have found yet another new British obsession, Daniel De Bourg.

What on earth are they feeding these children over in the UK?!  Tia is somewhere rocking back and forth in a corner because she ALWAYS falls for these types (you know she loves them Brits).  I, on the other hand, can't get enough of his Drake covers and want him to remake every single one.  I've always wanted to hear those songs WITHOUT the autotune on 11.

For more on Daniel De Bourg, check him out at  his Bandcamp Page where you can download his award winning mixtape.

How am I NOT supposed to love this guy?

Seriously, hot, British and SANGING?!?!?! WHAT?? I believe in all of those things in a man.

Honestly, this just isn't right. It still just isn't right.I cannot even look at this man's face for the stumbling block he proposes for me.

Lindsey said...

I do need for you to know that I am now obsessed with this fool. I am at the point where I now want to punch him in the face... and then enter into a covenant relationship with his voice.

You girls never cease to make me laugh! Idris Elba is HOT STUFF here in the UK and we Brits are proud to have a man that fine from our part of the world.

I suggest, if you haven't checked it out already, the British TV drama called Luther, starring no other than... IDRIS ELBA HIMSELF. (link below)

Enjoy,('cause, I know I will!)

With love, from one blogger to another xx

Idris--goes without saying! Just smoooth, sexy..everything!

Now onto Daniel--see, why do y'all do this to me? I *do* have a passport *and* I'm going to London later this summer to visit my cousin, who is working over there. I think Daniel may have some problems when I hit England LOL

His voice is straight danger! And it really doesn't hurt one bit that he's fine to look at.

Daniel won me over when he covered "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" by Alicia Keys. That is my jam and he does an awesome cover of it. I'd buy his album for sure.
