If there’s one person proud of Michael B. Jordan, it’s Dr. Dre. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the producer praised MBJ for starring in his directorial debut, Creed III — though he thought the actor was crazy for taking on the extra responsibility. 

“Mike actually came to my house and screened the film for me, and I thought he was out of his mind,” Dre said on the red carpet of the film’s LA premiere. “First-time director and starring in the film? It’s like, you gotta be crazy to do that, because it’s extremely difficult.” 

After watching the film, however, he said he was proud and excited to see what else Michael has in store as a director.

“I was so proud of him,” said Dre. “I said, ‘Listen, man, I can’t wait to see what’s gonna come out of your mind next, as far as the direction goes,’ you know? It was amazing.”

“I thought they did an amazing job,” he continued. “I’m really proud of it.”

Creed III premieres in theaters March 3. At the LA premiere, Michael told ET about apologizing to his mother before photos from his Calvin Klein’s Spring/Summer 2023 campaign, in which he only sported underwear, surfaced on the web.

“I was like, my mama gon’ have to see this. Let me call her and be like, ‘I’m sorry. It’s out here,'” Michael shared. “My business all out in the streets — literally.”

The actor’s set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 1.

Millennials are Taking Over the Workplace – Here’s What to Expect

As Millennials become the largest generation in the workforce, they are changing the way businesses operate and the way we work. From flexible work hours to a focus on work-life balance and a greater emphasis on collaboration, it’s no surprise that Millennials are shaking up the traditional corporate landscape. But with this change comes some unique challenges that employers must be prepared to face.

The first challenge is creating an environment that is attractive to Millennials. This includes offering career growth opportunities, the possibility of working remotely, and the flexibility to accommodate personal schedules and interests. By establishing an environment that allows for openness, creativity, and collaboration, employers will be better equipped to recruit and keep Millennial employees.

Another challenge lies in the need to bridge the gap between the old way of doing business and the new way. Millennials are bringing with them new technologies and creative ideas that could revolutionize how businesses work. Employers must be open to learning from their Millennial employees and be willing to accept change.

Finally, employers need to be aware that Millennials want to be seen, heard, and appreciated. Companies need to create a culture where everyone is valued, where their opinions are respected, and where they can make a difference. To make the most of their Millennial workforce, employers need to provide a sense of satisfaction in the work they do and the contributions they make.

As Millennials continue to make their mark in the workplace, employers must be prepared for the challenges that come with it. By creating an environment that appeals to Millennials, bridging the gap between the old and the new, and providing a sense of satisfaction in their work, employers can successfully recruit and retain the best Millennial talent.
