Ben Roethlisberger Signed To 3-Year Deal Amid Recent Controversy

Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers have been under a microscope as late thanks to controversy with Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown saying Big Ben isn’t a good teammate or leader. Former running back Rashard Mendenhall even called Roethlisberger a racist although he quickly walked back that claim and apologized.

Despite all this controversy, the Steelers are committed to Roethlisberger as they announced today that he has been signed to a 3-year year deal. Roethlisberger had one year left on his current deal and the Steelers gave him two extra seasons, tying him to the team until 2021. Roethlisberger spoke about the signing on the team’s website.

“I am grateful to the Rooneys and the Steelers organization for continuing to believe in me,” Roethlisberger said. “It has always been a goal to play my entire career in Pittsburgh. This is home for me and my family, and we love this city. I am as excited to be a Steeler in year 16 as I was when they drafted me. They will get my absolute best.”

With Brown and Bell gone from the team, the Steelers surely had enough cap space to be able to give Roethlisberger the deal he wanted.

Tom Brady Tops NFLPA Merchandise Sales List For Second Straight Year

By now, we all know just how dominant Tom Brady is. This year, Brady made it to his ninth Super Bowl and won his sixth after a fairly boring game against the Los Angeles Rams. Regardless, Brady made it clear to everybody that he is the best quarterback in the league and perhaps the best player to ever play the game football. Brady is hoping to play all the way until he is 45 years old and he turns 42 later this year. This will give Patriots fans a ton to cheer for as he consistently gives their team an opportunity to win a title.

Despite being in the league nearly 20 years, Brady’s popularity is still at an all-time high. This was confirmed when the NFLPA announced today that Brady led all players in merchandise sales for the second straight year, according to Sporting News.

Brady became the only player to top the list three times and was joined by some pretty impressive company on the top 10 list. Dak Prescott the Dallas Cowboys was second on the list, followed by Carson Wentz, Ezekiel Elliott, Patrick Mahomes, Saquon Barkley, Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Khalil Mack, and Drew Brees.

The list was based on merch sold between March 1, 2018, and Feb. 28, 2019.

Justin Bieber Adds To The Drake Curse As Maple Leafs Lose Game 7

Last night, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins battled it out in game 7 their first-round matchup the NHL playfs. Unfortunately for the Leafs, who were the only Canadian team left in the playfs, they lost the game 4-1 and were eliminated. It was a sad night for Leafs fans, particularly Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin, who were in attendance at the game. Bieber has been known as a big Maple Leafs fan and has pledged his allegiance to the team on multiple occasions.

Bieber is similar to Drake in the sense that the Leafs lost when Drake took in a game earlier in the series. Drake is known for the curse he puts on pressional sports teams and last night, Bieber was the one who had to endure all the curse jokes.

Luckily for the Toronto Raptors, the Drake Curse didn’t strike last night as they knocked f the Orlando Magic in five games. The final game the series was at home and Drake was actually in attendance. After the game, he joked with the media saying “You want me to talk about the curse or you guys good?”

Unfortunately, the Leafs could not escape the damage that Drake had already done a week prior.

"Netflix" Rumored To Be Possibly Losing "The Office"

Netflix has become a household name at this point, much to the chagrin Blockbuster video loyalists across the world. With “binge-watching” on the rise, many have found comfort in sitcoms long-finished, with familiar shows like “Friends,” “Fresh Prince,” “New Girl” and “The Office” having made for premium background viewing. Yet it would appear the streaming landscape is about to undergo a massive change, as everybody and their proverbial grandmother is dipping in for a piece the pie. For once, Netflix’s position as the streaming juggernaut may very well be challenged, especially if NBCUniversal’s upcoming service takes “The Office” to its rightful home.

A report from The Wall Street Journal details meetings  the “internal” variety, in which NBC plots to seize “The Office” once the licensing contract expires in 2021. As many still stand loyal to Netflix (though the upcoming Disney Plus might sway a few fence-sitters), losing a beloved series like “The Office” would be a near-catastrophic blow. Especially given data pointing “The Office” as Netflix’ most-watched series, standing resoundingly over second-place “Friends.” 

Would losing “The Office” be enough to sway your loyalty over to NBC’s upcoming platform? Sound f below.

Kim Kardashian’s Daughter North West Throws Adorable Fit Over Boots

Kim Kardashian shared an adorable photo her daughter, North West. Herein, the child is seen sporting a matching pink snakeskin fit, but something looks out place. A good look at the photo reveals the child is wearing her mother’s tall and heeled snake boots. Although the two do wonderfully match (good taste, North), Kim was not keen on letting her daughter step out with them.

The hilarious photo depicts North in the aforementioned outfit. Indeed, she looks incredibly pleased at first. However, all that stops once she is told she cannot wear the fashionista boots. 

As a result, the youngster’s tantrum is captured in a series four photos. The shots demonstrate the fit’s escalation, precisely ending with a close-up North crying. Though mother–three Kim Kardashian found the entire thing comical, it seems her eldest daughter did not share the same feelings. 

Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian allowed the public into her Hidden Hills home as part a Vogue issue where 73 questions were asked. All the Kardashian West children, North, Saint, and Chicago, made an appearance along with father Kanye West. The television personality spoke on motherhood, her law school journey and the anticipated addition to their family. 

Lil Xan Breaks Up With His Girlfriend & Celina Powell Immediately Shoots Her Shot

We enjoyed a good few months without Celina Powell but she’s ficially back and she’s still exposing all your favorite rappers. Her credibility took a major shot after she admitted to faking a pregnancy with Offset’s baby, nearly breaking up his marriage with Cardi B, but somehow she’s still out here and dudes are still willing to let her into their beds. If you haven’t gotten the message yet, she will ruin your life, fellas. In the first fifteen minutes her new interview with Adam22 on No Jumper, Celina said that she wants to get married to Lil Xan, had sex with Offset, bought Plan B for two NBA YoungBoy’s girls, and wanted to have sex with XXXTentacion. Get ready guys because this is a whole mess.

Celina was once known as Akademiks’ main squeeze before she turned into a serial exposer, keeping a list men she’s slept with and yelling it from the rotops. Lil Xan recently announced that he was expecting a baby with his girlfriend before telling that world that they had suffered a miscarriage. During the latest No Jumper live-stream, he was in the building and when he left, Adam22 revealed that he had just broken up with Annie Smith a few minutes before the live stream began. That was enough for Celina Powell to get back on the prowl, teasing Diego and telling him that she’ll be heading over to his spot later.

Later in the video, Celina admits to getting with Tekashi 6ix9ine in front DJ Akademiks, which seems like a pretty weird scenario. She sounds genuinely upset that 6ix9ine wore protection though. In her words, she could have been “his 80th baby mom.” Be ready to lose some brain cells watching this.

Tyga Could Be Facing Repo Warrants After Failing To Produce $111k In 2015 Lawsuit

TMZ has learned that a promoter whose complaint against Tyga was blatantly disregarded is vowing to collect on those damages, even if it means getting paid in jewelry or valuables seized by a sheriff’s search warrant. The issue stems from a booking Z Entertainment made in 2015, calling for the rapper to perform at Body English in Las Vegas.

According to the lawsuit initially tabled by Z Entertainment, although Tyga met the requirements the concert itself, the fact that he performed the night before at another Vegas venue constitutes a breach contract as per their arrangement. Z Entertainment claims that part the stipulations in their deal called for Tyga to not perform any concerts a week prior to the event, and a month after (as well) – a peculiar arrangement, but one that Tyga consented to nonetheless, out exclusivity I’d imagine. 

Z Entertainment was awarded a default win in court when Tyga no-showed his legal summon. The issue is Z Entertainment was never renumerated for the court order, a whopping $111,000 in docked earnings. After X amount years patience, the production has finally had enough, coupled with the fact they just witnessed the LA rapper boastfully show f a $500,000 expenditure in jewelry. As this writing, Z Entertainment has contacted both the  L.A. and Orange County Sheriff’s departments in order to seek the necessary permits to obtain those assets + interest by way force.

"Iridescent" Nike PG 3 Drops Next Month: Detailed Images

One the best Nike Basketball lines over the last few years has come courtesy Paul George. Unfortunately for George, he was eliminated from the playfs last night so any colorways his PG 3 that come out over the next few weeks won’t be seen on an NBA court anytime soon. There have been some great PG 3 models over the last few weeks and now, we’re getting one more colorway which as right now is being dubbed “iridescent.”

This particular model is very simple as it sports an all-over black upper and white midsole, although it’s the details that give the shoe its name. The Nike swoosh on the side and the lace cage on each side the sneaker are dressed in a sparkling iridescent flow that will surely add some flare out on the court. The iridescent details are fairly subtle so they won’t be too flashy out on the court. 

If you’re looking to cop these, they’ll be available on May 1st in Japan and will be released globally on May 24th for $110 USD.

However, his latest GQ shoot gave Rocky and Tyler the perfect opportunity to get their revenge.

Tyler, The Creator, Wiz Khalifa, and A$AP Rocky had jokes for Q after he posted a series photos from his GQ interview. Rocky went in on Q for his golf attire, comparing the South Central rapper’s fit to Tyler, The Creator’s general swag.

“YOU OL RETIREMENT RESORT, GRANDDADDY Q HEADASS, TYLER THE CURATOR FACE ASS N***A,” Rocky commented. “IMMA HEAT YO CADDY SHACK ASS, WHAT IN THE “TIGER backWOODS” IZ GOING ON , IMMA COME CLEAN , U GOT ME HOT Q”

Rocky’s previously admitted that Q has some the best jokes in the game. Rocky gets it the worst from ScHoolboy Q but at the end the day, it’s clearly all love. In an interview with Power 106 in 2013, Rocky recalled the time that Q clowned his entire family, including his father.

“I feel like its nobody who got better jokes than ScHoolboy Q… You be ready to fight after you joke with ScHoolboy Q,” he said. “First time he met my dad, he was like, ‘You ugly as hell!’ He didn’t even say hello, he just said, ‘you ugly,’ and the whole room was just laughing.”

Sting Openly Praises Juice WRLD’s Sampling Of "Shape of My Heart"

Sting is the latest artist to sign up for a coveted Las Vegas residency set to begin next year with a performance at  The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on May 22nd, 2020. To mark the occasion, the ex-The Police frontman joined up with Associated Press for an exclusive interview, where he outlined his ambitions for the immediate future.

Sting Openly Praises Juice WRLD's Sampling Of "Shape  My Heart"

Admittedly, he’s been avoiding becoming a sedentary figure, as he fancied himself a working-touring artist like no other – but in the advent other musicians such as Drake, Cardi B, J Balvin and Jennifer Lopez lining up residencies in their prime, Sting finally let his guard down in acceptance his fate. “I always thought, ‘I’m not quite ready for that. I’m still a touring animal.’ Now] I’m ready,”  he told the AP before fering up a particularly pround outlook on the situation.

“Being in one place is actually a different, spiritual vibe,” he said. “Welcoming people into your house — that’s basically what it’s going to be. I’ll be telling the story my life through songs. I’ve had a long, interesting life and I can’t wait.”

After broaching the subject his contract signing in the top-half the interview, Sting was then asked to speak on the various interpolations and samples his discography has undergone in recent years, namely the much-publicized Juice WRLD rendering  “Shape My Heart,” which is incidentally set to be included in a retrospective project coming out this year.

“I’m always intrigued by that. I’m always pleased by what I hear because they hear something in that lovely, descending bass line that makes for reflection. That pleases me. And there have been some fabulous versions,” Sting said with regards to the many artists who have sampled “Shape My Heart.” He then focused his attention squarely on Juice WRLD’s version “Lucid Dreams.”

“I was very impressed by what he put on top my version],” he said “Lucid Dreams” in particular. “It’s a really good song.” Sting’s change heart concerning the Nick Mira production is favorable, to say the least, because not so long ago, both parties seemed to be jostling over licensing rights, with Sting going as far as to threaten legal action over the song’s “unlawful clearance.” It seems as though cooler heads have prevailed in the situation, as Nick Mira’s use “Shape my Heart” was in part, a compliment the highest order. Imitation is the sincerest form flattery is it not?

We ended up with a crazy lineup.”
