Is Lady Gaga Dating Jeremy Renner?

-If you had asked me what famous person Lady Gaga would date next, Jeremy Renner would have been way, way, way down on the bottom of my list of guesses. But here were are!

Idris Elba is on the cover of December’s British Esquire and this feels like a really nice way for the universe to welcome me back to civilization after my vacation. In the interview, he talks about his early career and getting famous by playing an American. “I don’t like the term ‘black actor’ in the first place. I don’t understand what that is.

They don’t use colours confined to where they’re from…I’m a British actor, but America made me who I am as a popular actor by playing an American. But it just turns out that my grandad on my mother’s side was born in Kansas City. So, am I allowed? Or not allowed? The debate thickens, do you know what I mean?”
