Idris Elba is taking a year off from acting to focus on BEING SMOKIN’ HOT AM I RIGHT, LADIES? AND ALSO FELLAS?! LOL! Seriously though, Idris Elba could take a year off from acting to focus on the PHONE BOOK and I don’t think anyone would mind. From the StandardUK:

Idris Elba is taking a year away from acting to focus on his lesser-known career as a musician.

“This year, I’m not going to work as an actor and I’m going to put my mind into music,” he said. “It’s a progression thing with me. I want to make music but I don’t want to shove it down people’s throats. People are just barely getting to know me as an actor. But I do it from the heart, I’m not doing it for money — I just enjoy doing it.

“I’ve been asked to do lots of collaborations. I did something with Milk, which is a great band and an odd collaboration, I’ve done stuff with Jay-Z on his album American Gangster, so there’s bits and pieces that I’m just going to keep moving forward with.”

OK, Idris Elba! Whatever you say! I am sure that it is a progression with you, whatever that means, and that this is part of that progression. You take as much time as you need, my man. Your face will still be there when you get back, right? You’re not taking a year off to recover from Face/Off surgery? That would be the one thing that Idris Elba could take a year off to focus on where I would be like, well hold on and let’s just think this through a little more. AM I RIGHT ABOUT THINKIN’ IT THROUGH, LADIES?!

  1. What if he took a year off to focus on eating children?

  2. I wish he was taking a year off to focus on my pants.

  3. This is fine, unless this means Idris Elba will not be playing the next Bond. If that’s the case, Idris Elba and I have a problem (just kidding, don’t hurt me Idris Elba!)

    • I will accept him not as bond if and only if he is the Bond Boy to Helen Mirren’s 007.

      Shut up, a girl can dream.

    • When you read this title from an internet-enabled phone, you only get this title: Idris Elba To Take A Year Off From Acting To Focus On Who

      I was expecting very different content than what I initially read. It’s okay. All Elba content is good Elba content. Also Elba as the next Doctor would be amazing. Or Helen Mirren. I think LBT can agree with me on this as Mirren as the Doctor would make “Helen Mirren on a Spaceship” a reality… but Elba as the Doctor would get one hell of a River Song “Hello Sweetie!” (with the added bonus of knowing Rose is kicking herself and throwing a tantrum in the background).

  4. Are we all just making innuendo about Idris Elba? In that case mine is “I wish he would keep moving forward with my bits and pieces.”

  5. He collaborated with milk? That is just a great way to say he drank a bunch of milk. I’m gonna collaborate with rum tonight.

  6. Able was I, ere I saw Elba. And by “able” I mean “aroused.”

  7. I really want this muthafucka to be the NEXT James Bone and also Blade for the Blade reboot.

  8. Has anyone here actually heard Idris Elba’s music? It’s… not quite as handsome as he is.
