Winner and loser of the week in pop culture
John Cena. The giant slice of man candy/professional wrestler gave America a pretty stern talkin’ to this past Fourth of July weekend. And boy is he aiming to make America great again. In a PSA centered around patriotism, Cena walked the streets of our very own Ybor City and explained what a true American looks like. Hint: Not a single, straight, white male. “Almost half the country belongs to minority groups,” he says. “People who are lesbian, African-American and bi and transgender and Native American and proud of it. We know that labels don’t devalue us, they help define us. … What’s more American than the freedom to celebrate the things that make us, us?” Can we give the guy a WWE championship belt for that speech?
Iggy Azalea. People are really kicking the Fancy rapper while she’s down. 1. Her fiance, L.A. Lakers player Nick Young, cheats on her. 2. Keonna Green now says she’s 22 weeks pregnant with Young’s second child. 3. To top it off, Green said she isn’t sorry. All around a bad week for Azalea. According to TMZ, Green’s message to Azalea was “I wish her a lifetime of success … I mean, I’m definitely not going to apologize for being in love with a man who I have a lot of history with. I do wish her that kind of success and hope that she can get through this difficult time and she and Nick can move forward from this.” Gee, thanks. Azalea, for obvious reasons, isn’t taking the news very well. She was spotted giving some choice hand gestures to the paparazzi, telling photographers to pass it along to the happy couple. Maybe Azalea and Taylor Swift’s ex Calvin Harris can collaborate.
