This week on Ellen the charismatic TV host got to chop it up with U.S. Open Champion Naomi Osaka fresh off of her win against tennis legend Serena Williams. In efforts to get to know the 20-year-old Japanese-Haitian tennis champ a little better, Ellen quizzed her on everything from her favorite color (black) to her celebrity crush. “Come on. You can make it happen. You’re very famous now,” Ellen encourages of her celeb crush. “No. I’m not,” Naomi humbly responds before giving an answer.
So who’s the lucky gent who has won the affections of this star athlete? Michael B. Jordan, but of course, or the villain in Black Panther, as Naomi put it, because she didn’t even know his name! Ellen tries to help a sis out and offers to text MBJ to speed things along but Naomi says she’s good. However, Ellen must have went ahead with her plan after the show cause Michael sends Naomi a sweet message and called her an inspiration.
Check it all below:
OK, if you were maybe the only living soul who wasn’t a fan of Erik Killmonger before because maybe you couldn’t get over the fact he tried to take out Black Panther, that message had to have converted you to a full-blown MBJ-Hive member. Now, Naomi, please go live out this writer’s wildest fantasy and go live happily ever after with the man of every girl’s dream in Wakanda.
