Journalist Rush Limbaugh just made some pretty controversial comments about how he believes Idris Elba should not be in contention for the next James Bond he’s “a black Briton.”
“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was,” Rush said on his radio show. “But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”
Idris has mentioned in the past that he has been on the short list for the role and would take it if it was offered.
“I just don’t want to be called the first black James Bond. Do you understand what I’m saying? Sean Connery wasn’t the Scottish James Bond and Daniel Craig wasn’t the blue-eyed James Bond. So if I played him, I don’t want to be called the black James Bond,” Idris said in the past.
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Rush Limbaugh’s comments???
Christmas came a bit early for Taylor Swift – she is remaining at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for the sixth straight week with “Blank Space.” This breaks her own record of longest amount of time any of her songs has been at the top of the chart!
In the past, her number one hit “Shake It Off” spent four weeks on top of the charts, with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” spending three weeks at the top back in 2012.
Meanwhile, Hozier‘s “Take Me to Church” spends its third week at number 2. Mark Ronson‘s “Uptown Funk!” (featuring Bruno Mars) is remaining in the third spot on the chart.
Rounding out the top five is Ed Sheeran‘s “Thinking Out Loud,” and Meghan Trainor‘s “Lips Are Movin,” in fourth and fifth, respectively.
