#IdrisAtYourDoor: 12 Things We Would Do if Idris Elba Was at Our Door

idris elba

With the Sept. 12 release of thriller No Good Deed starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson on the horizon, the unique hashtag – #IdrisAtYourDoor is spreading wildly across social media. In the film, Elba portrays a violent prison escapee while Henson is the unsuspecting damsel who answers his knock and request to use her telephone. And, as you would expect, all chaos ensues thereafter. Though the handsome Brit depicts an obsessive criminal in the flick, we Vixens began to ponder what we would do if Idris was at our door asking to use the phone – but as his normal non-criminal sexy self, of course.

1. After taking multiple glimpses out of the peep-hole (ensuring that our eyes weren’t playing cruel tricks on us) do the Shmoney dance, fall on our knees and thank the heavens above for this sweet blessing of fate.

2. Yelling, “JUST A MINUTE” while sprinting to the bathroom to spruce up and cursing yourself for throwing on your bonnet and making it a Netflix night, at 6 p.m on a Saturday.

3. Actually answer the door – looking something like this, listen to his spiel and let him in.

4. Although after letting him we start to speculate the reasons why Idris has no cell in 2014, and then remind ourselves; IDRIS FREAKING ELBA just stepped foot into MY front door, care not!

5.  Making sure we deadbolt the door and letting him know it’s for his safety because he’s a celebrity you know, *side-eye*. But in our minds we're thinking, “Nah-uh you ain’t going nowhere.”

6. Tell him to make himself at home, while you go grab your phone. But first we’d call, text and yell out the window to share this glorious sip of tea with the world.

7. Run to the kitchen, rummage through the cabinets and get something cooking for him. I’m just saying, we can’t let the man starve, show some hospitality!

Idris Elba

8. Break out the GOOD wine – you know that bottle that you splurged on when you want to look good in front of your bougie company.


9. Sit down on the couch, Beyonce style.


10.  Completely ignoring the fact that he still needs to use the phone – attempt to strike up a mind blowing conversation that contains important details like your astrological sign, the fact that you like hand holding and long walks on the beach. Lots of giggling and hair twirling included.


11.  Give him a spare key, and casually explain that it’s an ‘in case of emergency’ key for whenever he’s in the neighborhood, wants to stop by and no one’s home. *another side-eye*




12. Finally get ready to pass over the phone, because remember that’s what he came for. But not without, first – taking an usie *wink*.

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
