I am not sure why this surprised me, but it did. Nia Long always had a perfect face that you thought would age well, kinda like a power pitcher that just had a smooth delivery. But you never hear how she still has her fastball at the age of 45. And going from Tribe lyrics during the 90s, through all the iterations of Puff Daddy/Puffy/Diddy/P. Diddy, all the way to J. Cole lyrics today is no small feat. I guess whenever we talk about ageless smokes, we usually think of white women. Kate Beckinsale, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Christie Brinkley, etc. etc. But this group is invalid if it doesn’t include Nia Long. So I am here to officially nominate her for the timeless hot chick Hall of Fame. The Jackie Robinson of the ageless banshees. You could recast her in a remake of Friday right now and she would still be more of a Debbie than a Mrs. Parker. Amazing stuff.

And J. Cole can shut his goddamn face when talking about being too young for Nia Long. Nia Long was here before J. Cole was born and will be here long after he is dead. You know why? Because I am pretty sure she is an ageless, normal-sized, sexy elf from Middle Earth a la Liv Tyler in Lord of the Rings.

PS: When she asked Larry if he thought she was a sex symbol as she casually leaned back, I was waiting for Larry to have some sort of asm, whether it be a spasm or an orgasm. Or both. I am not sure if guys that are Larry King’s age should be allowed to interview a sexy sorceress like Nia Long all alone.
