    I’ve always thought Tyrese is beautiful, I, myself am in love with the color of his perfectly even toned skin. I have a friend who’s skin is just as dark and maybe just a little darker. I’m light skinned so my heart will always belong to a beautiful dark handsome man. I really don’t know what it is but I’m not big on a light skinned man.

    This is a very (beautiful if I may) dark skinned black male. People, TV Guide and a host of other magazines, if he hasn’t been on your top most whatever, then something is wrong. Please do not go oops when he turns 100! I saw the promotional stuff for Transformers and was amazed that when they were using sex a peel for the other men they ‘accidently’ forgot Tyrese.
