Estelle has a crush and has no problem telling you who!
The British vocalist, who is the guest editor this month at Essence.com, revealed her celebrity crushes on actors Boris Kodjoe and Lance Gross as well as neo-soul maestro D’Angelo.
She also lets readers in on what it really takes for a guy to catch her attention and it’s not what you may think. Here she is in her own words…
“I’m a sucker for a smart dude,” she said. “Beauty is beauty. Pretty is pretty. Handsome is handsome. But, I like a dude with a brain. Like, I really do. I’m surrounded by pretty men, and along with that comes a sense of entitlement. Like, oh well, you should like me because I’m pretty. No. If I can’t talk to you, and you do stupid things and make stupid comments, I don’t care how pretty you are. It’s all in the head – it’s a whole thing. So, I get excited when I meet a smart dude.”
