Ron “Metta World Peace” Artest gets a Super Bowl shout out….sort of

Keywords: ron artest, metta world peace, giants, super bowl, madonna, halftime show, gmen, st. johns, lakers

Most New Yorkers will remember this years Super Bowl for the Giants victory over the Patriots. Come to think of it, no one is really going to try to forget about the GMen win, except maybe the folks up in Boston. But for those who watched this game just for the festivities or because of some weird obsession with Madonna, there was a little extra twist to the halftime show.

Towards the end of the performance, the words “World Peace” were shined upon the super bowl stage. Most people didn’t really get the message quite right. Twitter blew up with people saying it was a shout out to St. John’s alum Ron Artest. The Lakers star has recently changed his name to Metta World Peace. As the tweets began trending, Artest himself reacted to the moment tweeting “Rotfl!! Lmao!!! Super Bowl World Peace!!!!!” followed by “I feel like kissing Madonna Lol.”




These ladies looked ravishing at last night’s SAG Awards!

Keywords: best dressed, sag awards, award shows

Unlike previous award shows, I had an easier time choosing my fashion faves from yesterday evening’s SAG Awards, these ladies stole the show with their fabulous fashion choices!

Ashley Simpson called upon her beau’s TV show for her SAG ensemble, she looked stunning in Jenny Packham.

Emma Stone pulled off this tea length Alexander McQueen dress without looking like she was going to a tea party.

Michele Williams stuck to her Old Hollywood style in Valentino and got it right as usual, this girl is always a class act.

Angelina Jolie looked incredible in her black Jenny Packham halter. This kind of brought us back to her badass days, except with more glamour than grime.

Naya Rivera looked classy and glamourous in this Naeem Kahn gown, bearing just the right amount of cleavage.




The original Superman, Shaquille Oneal

Keywords: shaq, superman, spin doctors

Ahh the simplicity of the Spin Doctors. They were one of most fun bands back in the 90′s and it was due to them not trying too hard to get some hidden message across. Jimmy Olson’s Blues is a song about Superman’s pal Jimmy Olson. Olson of course doesn’t have any powers, and in the song he sends his appeal to the ladies that they don’t all need a Superman. But then again, Superman has many aliases, is one of them an NBA player?

 

 

Of course that was a segue setting us up to discuss the original Superman of the NBA, Shaquille Oneal. Shaq donned the name way before Dwight Howard was playing around in the cape. Under the nickname, Shaq became one of, if not THE, most dominant players of the 90′s. Although even when he was the best player out there, Shaq did have a Kryptonite, free throw shooting.




 You can’t knock her drive, she has quite the businesswoman

Keywords: victoria beckham, store opening, ecommerce

 

NYmag covered a recent interview by CNN in which Victoria Beckham expressed her interest in expanding her business, but cautioning that she is in no rush, and seems to be taking the slow and steady approach, which is quite respectable.

 

Many will say that it’s easy for a woman of Victorias stature to launch and build a successful clothing line, however until you’ve actually spent a day in the Fashion Industry, you will find that any level of success, no matter what your background is, is respectable and admirable.

 

 

In the interview, Victoria explains that she would love to open her own store, and that she is currently in the process of  doing so.   The store is likely to be based in London,  but Mrs. Beckham goes on to propose the possibility of a Hong Kong location.

 

 

In an industry that is so cut throat and competitive, a name will only get you so far-  it is an incredible head start over 99% of the people who launch their own fashion lines, no denying that, but that isn’t to say that this didn’t take a lot of time, effort and hard work on Victorias behalf to build the company up to where it is today.




During my travels I came across a man with a very telling license plate

Keywords: steve novak, knicks, mets

 

Sitting in traffic on the Grand Central. I cant imagine anything I rather do less after taking in a beautiful afternoon Mets game with a couple of buddies. But then whips by this car to change the course of our long travels. I saw it and knew I must capture. I sent my friend flying through lanes in order for me to get a good shot.

 

My iphone technology paid off for the first time ever and I was able to flick this gem. The license plate reads “3 ptr” for those with weak eyes. To the left of the words are a New York Knicks logo. And an SL63 AMG that hits your pockets for a cool $140,000.    All those things add up to one thing. Steve Novak.
