SO INSPIRATIONAL! NBA Player Derrick Rose Of The Chicago Bulls Reveals New ‘D Rose 3’ Shoe & Apparel

NBA player Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls is young, well-educated, successful and very wealthy (he is an inspiration of mines). Growing up in the streets on the South Side of Chicago, in the Englewood neighborhood (one of the most notoriously dangerous communities in the country) wasn’t an excuse for Rose to get caught up in the street life and not chase his dreams. In fact, he used his community as a motivation to get out and become something positive. Last season, at 22, Rose became the youngest ever NBA MVP. At just 23, he have already played in three All-Star games in his first four seasons, have a 14-year deal with Adidas reportedly worth $250 million and a $95 million dollar contract with the Bulls.

While D. Rose is recovering from a torn ACL, he is still making major moves. He was in his hometown of Chicago to unveil his newest shoe-the ‘D Rose 3’ Signature Collection. Rose refers to the shoe as his most personal shoe to date as he’s has to rebuild his body and mindset to make a quick recover, so he re-designed his logo as well. It is being reported that he broke down in tears earlier today Thursday (September 13) at his press conference talking about the love for his and the people in it.

“The D Rose 3 signature collection is special to me because I worked side-by-side with adidas on everything from materials to fit to colors to make it the best we’ve done yet,” said Rose. “I love the new logo that calls out the most important things to me: my family, basketball and the city of Chicago.”

This shoe drops October 4.

THIS TRACK IS A HIT IN THE MAKING! Ciara Releases “Sorry” Visual

As promised Ciara releases her “Sorry” visual and I love it! The track serves as the lead single off Cici’s upcoming One Woman Army album which is due this winter 2012. She is very talented! Cici is dancing and singing out her emotions in the Christopher Sims-directed visual. The track is about a famous man who Cici used to date. He promised to give her a ring on Christmas as well as promised to stay with her but it turned out that he broke her heart and didn’t say “Sorry”. All Cici wanted him to do was say “Sorry” and she would had stayed. She already denied that the track was about NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire. Therefore, we all know it is about 50 Cent. Her new single “Got Me Good” drops October 8th.

Wiz Khalifa Air Walks On A Tightrope On Complex’s October/November 2012 Issue

Without a release date for his sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C., Wiz Khalifa still managed to cover Complex‘s October/November 2012 issue.

Rap stardom in 2012 is a high-wire act. Just ask Wiz Khalifa. The Pittsburgh spitter has progressed from mixtape hero to Internet sensation to bonafide superstar. Mainstream hits like “Roll Up” and “Black & Yellow” have allowed him to enjoy the finer things in life, but they’ve also brought complaints from longtime Taylor Gang fans that Wiz switched his style up in pursuit of pop stardom. You can’t please everybody, but Wiz knows that maintaining a successful career in hip-hop is all about staying true to yourself while striking the perfect balance. The issue officially hits stands on October 2, but you can read the entire cover story right now over at Complex.”

THIS IS FOR MY LADIES! NFL Player Cam Newton Strips Down To Boxer Briefs For New Ad

I’m so glad that I am not the only male that does not have any tattoos.  23-year-old North Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton strips down to his boxer briefs in his new ad campaign for Under Armour. In the ad, Newton is modeling a pair of $20 Men’s The Original  6″ Boxer Jock Boxer Briefs which carries the slogan, “You’ll never wear regular underwear again”. I love these boxer briefs! I wouldn’t mind signing an endorsement deal with the company.

According to UnderArmour.Com, “When we burst onto the performance apparel scene, performance underwear was a no-show. We set out to change that. Forget old boxer briefs that bunch up, wear out, or lose shape. The Original UA Boxerjock® stretches, recovers, stays put, wicks sweat, keeps you cool, and kills odors. Typical UA—even our underwear overachieves.”
