"White People Say Weird Things:" Daniel Kaluuya Talks 'Get Out' With Stephen Colbert

The British-Ugandan actor made his first late night appearance last week on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert."

Daniel Kaluuya made his late night debut last week on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he discussed the cultural impact of "Get Out," particularly the response from white viewers.

He spoke about the universal appeal of 'Get Out' for black folks around the globe. "White people say really weird stuff to you," said the actor.

"[Jordan Peele] was saying a joke about 'oh I would have voted for Obama three times. The new version of that is "oh I've seen 'Get Out' three times," says the actor when asked about some of the odd reactions he's gotten to the film from white folks. "It's like people think, oh I'm so down," he continued.

The two exchange jokes back and forth, and Colbert goes on to ask Kaluuya what 'his most Hollywood moment" was. Hint: taking a picture with Queen Oprah, who he was introduced to by Denzel Washington. We'd say that one's pretty hard to top.

Daniel Kaluuya will appear in Marvel's Black Panther next month. He's also been nominated for the 2018 BAFTA Rising Star Award.

Check him out on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert below.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.
