Britney Spears & Sam Asghari Check Out The Lakers

So let’s be clear, the year 2017 has been the ultimate dumpster fire. I truly mean that, from start to finish I think that the year has been a mess. Although there is one thing that I am very thankful for.

Britney and Sam.

That’s right. Britney is still dating her “Slumber Party” music video co-star Sam and I think that it is absolutely perfect.

The other night Britney, Sam, and her two sons took in a Lakers game in one of her first truly public events in a while. Yes, she goes out there and kills it in Vegas but she is really rarely seen.

Do I think that this couple will last until the end of time? No.

Do I think Britney deserve to have a hunk of man meat on her arm? Yes.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Pens Essay Slamming ‘The Bachelor’

Image result for kareem abdul-jabbar

Well okay, this isn’t something that I saw coming, that’s for sure. Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took to The Hollywood Reporter to write and essay about the popular ‘Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette’ series.

Now I suggest that you read the whole thing by clicking here, but I did pick out some of my favorite parts of the essay.

Getting into the show, he started to talk about how the people represented on this show don’t necessarily have brains, they are simply all the same with removable parts. Everyone on that show looks the same, it’s the truth. Most of the men have the same haircut, same abs, and same five o’clock shadow.

It is teaching this generation that beauty is more important than really anything else at all.

The shows’ mantra repeated by most castmembers that “everyone deserves love” ain’t necessarily so. You’re not even in the running for love unless you fit a very narrow ideal of Ken and Barbie doll physical beauty. These shows promote the scorched-earth effects of raising females to be continually judged physically above all other attributes and then measured against impossible physical standards that has marginalized a majority of girls and women — and made billions for the beauty products, clothing, and cosmetic surgery industries. Even youthful Amanda Stanton, 26, admits to using Botox.

Abdul-Jabbar continues on that there is no diversity on the show. There has never been a person of color to win, or even make it close to the end. In fact not one nonwhite person has ever made it past week five. That’s fucking crazy.

The real crime is the lack of intellectual and appearance diversity, which leaves the contestants as interchangeable as the Mr. Potato Head parts. The lack of racial diversity has already been commented on. If you’re black on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, you’re usually kept around as a courtesy for a few weeks before being ejected. Those outside the ideal body fat percentage index need not apply. With all eyes firmly fixed on firm buttocks, the criteria for finding love becomes how high a quarter will bounce off rock-hard abs. Will we ever witness a conversation that isn’t so bland and vacuous that words seem to evaporate as soon as they are spoken? The rest — intimate outings, group dates, visiting hometowns — is window dressing to disguise the establishment of a laundry list for love so paltry and insubstantial that nearly anyone with a hipster beard or pert breasts can make the cut.

He even calls out JoJo Fletcher by name.

JoJo Fletcher’s constant whining about being in love with three men from the petrie dish of ab-fastic, bearded suitors certainly denigrates the concept of love. Throughout the show she worried about the kind of men she’d gone out with before who treated her as less valuable than she wanted. As soon as we saw Jordan, the jock who kept her at a distance, and who she described as being like her previous boyfriends, there was no doubt she would select him to relive the psychological loop of needing to be validated.

Then he leaves us with this little tidbit.

The real danger is when we try to apply that fantasy thinking to our own lives. And when we think about where our children learn about the realities of romance, it becomes even more important to question what may influence their behavior in choosing a partner.

Just taking one step back I wanted to put in my own personal thoughts but they will simply echo the powerful words that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar put together.

We are supposed to believe that our soulmate has the perfect body and if we ourselves don’t have the perfect body, then we are worthless. We are fed all of this negative shit from the media yet some how we are supposed to love ourselves. It doesn’t really make sense at all. It’s sometimes hard to remember that, but please remember that you’re worth it.

Your flaws are beautiful, no matter what the media says.

D’Angelo Russell Films Nick Young Allegedly Admitting To Cheating On Iggy Azalea

Well, it looks like D’Angelo Russell broke “bro code” and now every player on the Lakers hate him. Why you ask? A recent video came out that D’Angelo recorded as a supposed prank, where Nick Young admits to bringing a girl home from the club.

Apparently D’Angelo did this as a prank because Nick had no idea he was being filmed, but I don’t see how this is a prank? I mean is it funny to film someone admitting to cheating on their fiancee and then post it on SnapChat? I really have no idea.

You can hear Nick stating that he is 30 and the girl brought home was 19.

According to reports there has been a serious rift because of this, “bro code” and locker room talk aren’t meant to be broken!

After reading some of these comments on different articles it is pretty disgusting. People say that all basketball players are cheaters and Iggy is stupid for being with one at all. I mean, maybe she fell in love guys, I am sure she wasn’t aware that her soon to be husband was bringing home girls from the club. That’s just what I think though.

Iggy hasn’t made an official comment about the video but she did tweet.

No word on whether that was sarcasm or what, no word on whether or not the engagement is over. All that has been confirmed is that no one cares about Iggy and how she is probably heartbroken, everyone is just mad that D’Angelo broke the “bro code”.

Also, Amber Rose shout out at the end, apparently Nick never tried because she knows Iggy.

Man Crush Monday: Kobe Bryant

This weeks Man Crush Monday goes out to one of the greatest basketball players of our time. Kobe Bryant announced that this season would be his last one which in all honesty is probably a good thing. Yes it will be sad to see him go, but it makes it even sadder that he isn’t retiring at the top of his game. Kobe was one of the greatest basketball players out there and he is retiring with a sucky team around him.

Now listen, a lot of people hate Kobe, they call him an asshole and all of that fun stuff. All of it could be true! He is still a great basketball player though. I am going to just sit here and wait for someone to mention his rape case. Hew as found not guilty I will just leave it right there.

Kobe has played for 20 years, he is 37 years old, and has two adorable daughters.He is also a certified hottie.

So good luck with your retirement I am sure that you will be on ESPN or something talking about basketball and all of that stuff.

Happy Monday!
