Seems like Jay-Z and Beyonce have gone from the best to most woke celebrity couple this past week. After the tragic shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, Bey released a note on her website and displayed names of people murdered by police at her concerts. Not to be left behind, Jay penned a new song titled Spiritual and curated a self-care playlist. While many seem skeptical, I honestly don't care how long it takes for a celeb to speak up, as long as when they do they have something productive to say. I’m tired of waking up to another black person being murdered. I’m tired of crying I’m tired of holding my breath making sure my family is okay. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Frank Ocean back in the public eye as the newest star to feature in Calvin Klein's fall campaign. Still no album though.
Tim Duncan, style icon, a man who ever saw an XXL Costco shirt he couldn't rock, has retired from the league with no comment but a press release. It's kinda sad, with him and Kobe gone I feel like I did when I watched the last Harry Potter movie. It's like a chapter of my childhood had come to an end
Draymond Green was arrested in his home state of Michigan for allegedly slapping someone (and surprisingly, not for kicking them in the crotch) and was released on bail shortly after. Looks like the Warriors are gonna keep the offseason busy and interesting.
4 off-duty cops working security at a Lynx game walked off duty after some players spoke up about the recent tragedies and wore shirts that read "Change Starts With Us—Justice and Accountability," as well as the names of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, and a Dallas PD emblem. The officers actions gave us all that Minnesota nice feeling.
Focus on living your best life, here's your personal week!
