GINA RODRIGUEZ On LATINA!!!


CW Comedy-Drama, JANE The VIRGIN star GINA RODRIGUEZ gets interviewed by Actress/Singer/TV Host ADRIENNE BAILON as the cover story for the March 2015 issue of LATINA!!!

Here are some interview highlights:

Adrienne Bailon:
 
I can’t believe we’ve never met before. Let’s start with your family life. How was it growing up?

Gina Rodriguez:
 
I grew up in Chicago, in the ’hood, where it was predominantly Latino and Polish. The whole area starts with a big ol’ Puerto Rican flag and ends with a big ol’ Puerto Rican flag.
 
Bailon:
 
Do you guys have a big ol’ Puerto Rican parade out there?

Rodriguez:
 
Oh, yeah, girl! I just got asked to be the grand marshal of the New York one! I’m about to salsa for miles. But Chicago is dope. I have two older sisters: One’s an investment banker and the other is a doctor. We all did good until I came around, and they were like, “Actor? No, you’re trying to be a lawyer.” And I was like, “I’m not trying to do anything with law but I’ll play one on TV.” It took a little while for my parents to get used to me being an actor.
 
Bailon:
 
But you studied at Columbia University and graduated from New York University. That’s big! Obviously, education is important to you.
 
Rodriguez:
 
Education was definitely number one, and that's why acting scared my parents. They were like, "What are you going to do with that? How are you going to make money?" We didn't grow up with money so they always instilled that education was going to get you to where you needed to be, and it definitely did. The reason I went to N.Y.U. was because it was the only way to get them on board. And it was the best thing that happened to me, because I got the tools and techniques that I'll never change for anything.

ODELL BECKHAM Jr & DREW BREES SET GUINESS WORLD RECORD For ONE-HANDED CATCHES!!!

odell beckham jr
Thursday, January 29, NEW YORK GIANTS Wide Receiver #13 ODELL BECKHAM Jr. and NEW ORLEANS SAINTS Quarterback 39 DREW BREES brought to life a Visa commercial to set a Guinness World Record for most one-handed catches in a minute, completing 33 on the ESPN SUPER BOWL set.

The passes had to travel at least 10 yards. The event was officiated by Arizona Interscholastic Association football official Tyler Cerimeli and was verified by Guinness World Record adjudicator Alex Angert.

Most one-handed catches in a minute was a new category that was broken in by BECKHAM and BREES.

They had to complete at least 10 passes in 60 seconds for the record to count. Their record-breaking attempts were televised, but if they had failed to reach 10, the pair would have had another two 1-minute attempts to set the mark.

That wasn’t needed when ODELL caught every pass thrown his way. DREW had his own broken-in footballs flown in from New Orleans for the event, and he was incredibly accurate, putting every pass just above Beckham’s right shoulder

DREW BREES said;
“It’s unreal. He’s a special talent. To be able to do it with him is really cool. We were locked in,” Brees said. “The way you do anything is the way you do everything. We were here to set the absolutely highest mark that we could. I think we did.”

TIMBERLAND CANCELS A.P.C. SHOE COLLECTION After FOUNDER USES N-WORD At FALL/WINTER 2015 SHOW!!!

timberland
TIMBERLAND has terminated its relationship with A.P.C. after founder JEAN TOUITOU used ‘offensive remarks’ to introduce the brand’s fall 2015 menswear show in PARIS this week.

COMPLEX reports this past weekend in The City of Lights, JEAN TOUITOU presented his FALL/WINTER 2015 COLLECTION, and named a portion of the new line, LAST N*GG*S IN PARIS.

STYLE.COM reported he said it was a fusion of the 1972 erotic-drama, Last Tango in Paris, and the JAY-Z/KANYE WEST collaboration, "Ni**as in Paris."

DAILY MAIL reports while holding up a sign that read, ‘LAST N*GG*S IN PARIS,’  he explained that A.P.C’s collaboration with Timberland is ‘a very strong ghetto signifier.’

Yesterday Timberland chose to ‘immediately terminate’ its involvement A.P.C., including the footwear collaboration it had planned for this fall.

TIMBERLAND President, STEWART WHITNEY said;
"Yesterday we became aware of the offensive remarks made by Jean Touitou during his A.P.C. Fall Menswear show in Paris. We have chosen to immediately terminate our involvement with the A.P.C. brand, including the footwear collaboration we had planned for this fall. Simply stated, this kind of language and approach is in complete contrast with our values. Timberland seeks to collaborate with designers and brands who are at the forefront of lifestyle trends; equally important, they must also share our values."

AMERICA Is HAVING SLEEP PROBLEMS On NEWSWEEK!!!

2015_01_23_Cover_600 x 800
If you’re feeling cranky, confused or too tired even for sex, blame it on THOMAS ALVA EDISON!!!
 
We’re all bushed, and it’s all his fault.
 
Humans have been screwing with their body clocks—and getting less sleep—ever since the Wizard of Menlo Park had his very bright idea. Indeed, our classic eight-hour-night only dates back to the invention of the light bulb in the late 1800s. Historians believe that before the dawn of electric lighting most people got plenty of sleep, and practiced what they call “segmented sleep,” snoozing for several hours in the first part of the night, when darkness fell, then waking in the middle of the night for a few hours of eating, drinking, praying, chatting with friends or maybe even canoodling, before ducking back under the covers again until morning. The arrival of electricity, argues sleep historian A. Roger Ekirch, led to later bedtimes and fewer hours of sleep overall.
 
We’re still waging a war on sleep, and we are, alas, still winning.
 
UNIVERSITY Of CHICAGO Research Team recently studied our sleep patterns over time and concluded that we now sleep between one and two hours less than we did 60 years ago. In the 1970s, most Americans slept about 7.1 hours per night: Now the mean sleep duration has plunged to 6.1 hours. An hour lost in 40 years? If we keep up at this rate, we’ll be down to less than four hours a night by the end of the century. And very, very cranky.
 
NEWSWEEK Journalist BETTY ISAACSON gets between the sheets to delve into The GREAT AMERICAN SLEEP DEFICIT And WHAT To DO ABOUT IT.

ERICA MENA On ROLLING OUT!!!

Erica Mena1
BRONX, NY-native VH1 LOVE & HIP HOP star ERICA MENA bares her soul and nearly bares her right breast as she covers the new issue of ROLLING OUT!!!

Here are some highlights from the interview with the luscious LATINA:

Anyone who watches “Love & Hip Hop” knows that you have moments where things get heated with arguments and fights. How do you react to seeing yourself act in such a manner?

I know how it happened in real time and then I also know that things in life just happen. People are going to judge you and hate you no matter what. I’m constantly going through the transition of love and hate at the same time and it just makes me who I am. I’ve finally come to the realization that because of the platform, I have to kind of take a view on my life. Editing does play a big part because sometimes how it happens and how it’s edited doesn’t really work to your favor. But, this is still my life and it’s still entertaining. Whether people love it or hate it, they’re still intrigued about what’s going on with crazy Erica Mena. With the whole Kimbella situation, I had to learn that I have to think before I act. But I also have to be OK with being myself, because if I’m not being myself fully or truthfully, I’m not really living.

Last season, you were in a relationship with Cyn Santana. Some people will say, “Erica Mena was in love with a woman a few months ago, how can she be ready to marry a man?” How do you address such comments?

People have misconceptions about everyone I’ve dated. Last year, it’s like “oh, all of sudden, she’s gay.” No, I’ve been bisexual. In the past, I’ve been very open and affectionate towards females. It’s definitely no secret. At that point, I was dating a woman and brought her on the show.

You’ve been friends with Bow Wow since meeting him on the “FreshasImiz” video in 2006. How did you both fall in love in 2014? 

When that whole “106 & Park” kiss happened, we were both seeing other people and that kiss put us in the doghouse. So we were kind of confiding in each other. I realized that he is a man who really knows me and I’ve never had someone to fully accept me for who I am, flaws and all. I think it just happened naturally with us. We were at that point of really wanting to settle down, but the people that we were with at the time just weren’t fitting us. So it just happened and I discovered that this was the person that I was really supposed to be with.

But people have said, “how can she be ready for marriage when she was just involved in a publicized relationship a few months prior?” It seems to have happened rather quickly. What do you say to people who think this is a publicity stunt?

I think people are trying to put pieces together in other people’s lives so much that they are not living their own life. Cyn and I have been broken up for a while, I just hadn’t publicly come out about it because I’m on reality television. So to keep you tuned in, I had to keep things under wraps. So in this season of “Love & Hip Hop,”  there’s a lot of catching up for the fans to do. And I think they will see how everything transpired and will get a better understanding.

You’re very open sexually. What turns you on the most when it comes to sex?

Being with Bow [Wow], he’s so dominating and that just turns me on because I’m usually the dominating one. I’m a Scorpio, so I call the shots. It’s different to have someone that you can finally be submissive to. So dealing with a woman like me, it’s kind of like, ‘can she be tamed?’ It’s all a matter of, are you man enough to tame the woman. And there’s a way to be assertive, but still give that embraceable nature that makes a woman kind of be submissive to you, that’s very powerful. But in order for a man to feel like a man, a woman has to give him the most respect. But in order for the woman to give you that respect, you kind of have to demand it and make her embrace you for what you are doing to her for her to respect you. So it’s a catch-22. I think men are scared of being men these days.

Why do you think some men are afraid to be men?

From my last relationship with ‘B—- Dollaz’ [Rich Dollaz], he was just one of those dudes who would always run home to his mama. You know, it just shows that you’re a punk at that point. And that also goes for respect. You can still be a man and have authority and get your point across without being disrespectful. I think a man should “think like a man.”

Now that you’re engaged, what do you think men respect most about women?

Men love women who aren’t babies, who don’t nag and you don’t have to stroke their egos. You just kind of have to be sure of yourself. If you feel good, I’m telling you every man in America will know you’re feeling good.

BIG SEAN On COMPLEX!!!

 photo big-sean-complex-cover.jpg
DETROIT Rapper BIG SEAN covers the February/March 2015 issue of COMPLEX!!!

Here are some interview highlights:

On hooking up with Ariana Grande and being friends first:

“We started as friends,” he says. “I’d never done that. Usually you meet a girl and then start dating. We always saw each other in the studio, and we’d talk about songs we were working on. It was cool to have a girl that I could talk to about my problems. I did that with her. It’s not some fake-a$$, inauthentic sh*t when I say we were friends. This is something special and I appreciate every moment of it.” But what about the pressures that come from dating another celebrity? Finding time to see each other? Having your love life in the news? “I don’t think about it like that,” Sean says. “You can’t be afraid, because when you’re afraid you don’t give it your all.”

On Ferguson and Eric Garner:

“It don’t even surprise me,” he says. “It’s sad. It is a racial thing, but the fact that the law can get away with this is sad. That you can kill somebody on camera. It’s been happening. It’s so wrong, on an ethics level, on a racial level, on so many levels. It brought my spirits down yesterday when I heard about Eric Garner. I didn’t even tweet about it. I didn’t do anything. I couldn’t.”

On the "Control" record:

“Looking back on it, it was a different vibe than my album,” he said about the song. “There’s a lot of negativity on that song, and I don’t f— with negative s—. People love drama, people love bulls—. I knew when Kendrick did that name-dropping, that it was just gonna set it off… I never wanna shade anybody. I would’ve been a ho-a$$ n—- if I cut that out of his verse, or if I didn’t put the song out.”

CHEAP GAS On TIME!!!

Cheap Gas Cover Time Magazine Cover
At first look, the collapse in oil prices over the past year, from $107 per barrel in June to below $50 a barrel today, seems like the proverbial free lunch for American consumers!!!

The decline in prices is the equivalent of a $125 billion tax cut.

And it’s effectively a And it’s effectively a progressive one, since the biggest beneficiaries will be working- and middle-class people who spend a disproportionate amount of their income on gas for their cars and heating fuel for their homes. American households with oil heat could save $767 each this winter. That cash can now be spent on a new car—or a washing machine, an electronic gadget, clothes or a few dinners out.

TIME Magazine has a team of journalists on the prowl to bring us the truth behind The COST Of CHEAP GAS.
