Michael B. Jordan is looking good as earned income credit on the cover of Essence magazine’s “Men’s Issue.”
The “Fahrenheit 451″ star posted his cover on Instagram with the caption:
S/O to the baby oil lady! She did her thang on this one ?. Honored to grace the cover of @essence for the 2nd time this year.
Michael also addressed the pesky dating rumors. You know, the ones that claim he prefers everything but a black woman.
He told Essence:
It’s so funny to everybody because it couldn’t be further from the truth.
My dad and my mom both said, ‘If they only knew.’ If they only knew. And that’s the thing that keeps me not tripping about it, you know what I mean?
It makes me hesitant about whoever I’m seen with. I’m finally starting to get to a place now where I don’t care, but it bothered me for a minute. It made me more conscious of things I say and how I move, and what could happen if I leave a club or a restaurant or the movies. If I leave anywhere, any known place with anybody, there’s going to be speculation.
Look at what I’m about as a person. Look at my upbringing, my culture, where I come from. How could I not love and appreciate my own race?
