I am liking making list posts, so I thought I’d give this a go. Here is my list and needless to say, I am a fan of most of these couples. Read on for the commentary and let me know if I have missed anyone. The list is in order of who I like.
15. Rihanna & Chris Brown
14. Meagan Good & Thomas Jones
(My take: This bloke is sexy. Seriously he is. I can’t wait for Meagan’s film The Unborn to come out later this month.)
13. Eva Pigford & Lance Gross
(My take: I don’t know who he is, but he’s fit. Eva looks cool – she did win the first series of the US version of Top Model I think).
12. Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon
(My take: No comment but I love Mimi at any rate.)
11. Kassy & Liya Kebede
(My take: Liya needs no introduction. Kassy is an investment banker. Bank that people! East Africa is here!]
10. Noemie Lenoir & Claude Makelele
(My take: They are such a gorgeous couple. Interesting how if you translate Noemie’s maiden name, it means ‘the black’ literally in French. Makelele is from Congo-Kinshasha and his name means ‘noise’ in Swahili. So random, love it.)
9. Omar & Keisha Epps
(My take: So bloody cute, Omar is. Wow. I know why I have been watching House, M.D, all week. Keisha was in Total. Black love looks better with each entry.)
8. Tyra Banks & John Utendahl
(My take: Tyra, love you! I heard that this bloke is an investment banker, who is 50. Wicked. She’s cute and so is he.)
7. Tyler Perry & Gelila Bekele
6. Kimora Lee & Djimon Hounsou
(My take: Is it possible for African men to be any sexier? Djimon proves that it is possible. I like Kimora too as well. She has lots of personality. And before I hear anyone saying she is not black, she is. Is it just me or is that mag scan really great for once for Bazaar?)
5. Denzel & Pauletta Washington
(My take: Denzel still has it. I don’t know what it is. But he has it. Gorgeous man. These two have been married for ages.)
4. Oprah Winfrey & Steadman Graham
(My take: Like I even need to write anything. This is a given as to why they are on my list!)
3. Beyoncé & Jay-Z
(My take: As a stan, I just want to see mini Jayoncé’s now. Bee is too bloody gorgeous! Love this couple, but then if you read this blog, you know that is a given.)
2. Will & Jada Pinkett Smith
(My take: What a dreamy couple. They are gorgeous, humble and just all rounders. Thumbs up.)
1. Marack (Yes, they are that cool now that I have merged their names)
This is my list. I know there are people whose names I have missed out but let me know what you think.
Black on black celebrity couples are not that common as this list in itself proves because even though there are others, there are not that many.
Of this couple, only a few are actually married like Will & Jada, Marach & Mr and Mrs Carter. This is something to think about.
