In This Interview Oscar Isaac Addresses The Fan Theory That His ‘Star Wars’ Character Is LGBT

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” actors Laura Dern and Oscar Isaac talked to Collider about the upcoming film and Isaac was asked what he thought about his character, Poe Dameron, being seen as an LGBT icon. There have been rumors since the last “Star Wars” movie, “The Force Awakens,” about Poe’s relationship with Finn (John Boyega) being more meaningful that just any old space bromance. The fan art on Google of this is pretty amazing. When asked if he could confirm or deny it, or talk about what it meant to him, he kept his answer somewhat nebulous.

“What it means to me is that people can see themselves in a hero like this, in a movie like this. Which I love, not only LGBT, but Latinos, that there’s a representation out there for that,” he said, following up with, “As to actually seeing how that manifests itself in Poe, in this film, that isn’t going to necessarily be a clear story point, in this one. But as an actor, for me, I’m very open to those possible storylines and I don’t think it needs to be nailed down in any traditional way.”

So Isaac didn’t confirm or deny that Poe and Finn have a relationship, but he’s proud to represent his Latinidad. Athough we may not get the Poe and Finn romance that so many fans want in this film, it could happen in the future, in a galaxy, far, far away…

People Are Hyped Over Cardi B And Offset Having A New Song Together

“Let’s talk money in Spanish ’cause I can speak it in both.”

Cardi B and Offset released a collab and it is blowing up the Internet right now. The engaged couple dropped “Um Yea” and fans cannot get enough of the new song. They’ve already started demanding that the couple make a full album, with many looking at them as a power couple like Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Cardi B has had one incredible year starting with the release of her “Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2” mixtape in January. Five months later, she announced a deal with Atlantic Records and released “Bodak Yellow,” showing the world who she is as an artist and entertainer. “Bodak Yellow” went on to make history as Cardi became the first solo female rapper since Lauryn Hill in 1998 to reach the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 without anyone else on the track. She has since collaborated with Migos and Nicki Minaj, and has confirmed that she is working on something with Kehlani. She even managed to get engaged to Offset during all of that madness. And now the two are topping off 2017 “Um Yea”.

First, everyone thinks that this song is fire.

It’s just too damn hot!

It’s blowing up people’s personal charts.

Alright. Understood.

However, some fans already consider “Um Yea” as a deep look into their relationship.

Well, if you feel the same way as this person, who needs a follow up lovey dovey song? “Um Yeah” is all about their relationship and the strength they find in each other.

And Cardi hears your requests for a music video. Just give her a minute and she’ll get to it.
