You never know what will be waiting in your mail box. Essence has placed a new (and handsome) face on the cover. Actor, DJ and this blog’s Hot Chocolate favorite, Idris Elba, graces the cover of the August issue. Inside he talks about what’s next on his horizon, why his famous character, Stringer Bell, had to die and why he’d “rather date someone who is regular.” I wonder why they chose Idris. Do you think they got my letter? I don’t think this one will stay on the magazine stands long, ladies. Enjoy.
