A Rod talks Kylie’s rich life, calls Idris Elba “black guy”

Alex Rodriguez spilled the details of his conversation with Jenner at the Met Gala in an article published Tuesday in Sports Illustrated. The retired Yankees slugger also likely offended many with his insensitive way of identifying celebrities at his table by their race. 

“We had a great table,” Rodriguez said of his and fiancée Jennifer Lopez’s dinner mates at the gala. “The black guy from ‘The Wire’— Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife.

“Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is,” he continued. “Versace — Donatella. We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from ’Crazy] Rich Asians,′ the lead. Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.” 

Rodriguez managed to avoid other misfires in the SI interview, though the magazine recounted a conversation with Lopez that reveals he didn’t know the meaning of the word “balmy.” 

“It’s balmy tonight,” she says, dreamily.

“Balmy?” Rodriguez asks. “How do you spell that?”

“B-A-L-M-Y. Balmy.”

“What does it mean?”

“It means when there’s a little bit of a humidity in the air. It’s hot but not scorching. When it feels like there’s a blanket around your skin. Balmy.”

“Use it in a sentence?”

“The air was balmy and thick as we rode to the graduation ceremony.”

“See? She’s a wordsmith,” Rodriguez says admiringly. “I told you.”

To be honest A Rod himself is a mixed Latino who clearly has some indigenous and black in him. Also depending on where he was raised and grew up, race and identifying ppl by race isn't seen as such a big thing or a bad thing. Of course you'd expect that with time and all his success and fame he would take some time to be more eloquent but some ppl truly never change and I guess he is one of them...Not an excuse by the way just an observation.

But how would you describe Idris Elba if you didn't know his name? :laughga: seriously, what's wrong about calling him "the black guy from The Wire"? Are we pretending people aren't black or white or any other colour they present I guess?

Why do people even pay attention to her? I don’t get it. She’s not that great. 

To each their own I guess:smh:

Not much going on upstairs. I’m sure JLo will end up making the big financial decisions from here on out.  :poot:
