After an absolutely wild NBA summer, somehow we’re still waiting on the inevitable Kyrie Irving trade from Cleveland. It seemed like every week since the Finals ended we had some crazy stuff happen between the draft, free agency and social media, but then Kyrie demanded a trade and it’s been crickets since.
Outside of Cavs fans burning his jersey and LeBron taking his subtle shots, the Kyrie news has been slim. That’s all about to change now that he’s rocking this sweet dad stache. The perfect way to change the public opinion on you is to change your look. We’ve seen LeBron pull this move before, now it’s Kyrie’s turn.
People say Kyrie can’t be the main guy on a team, so he goes and changes the narrative. He shaves the beard, he keeps the stache and now he looks like a salty vet ready to lead a team to a title. I can’t knock this move one bit, the man knows what he’s doing.

Ok, so today we’ve had some less-than-calming reports about North Korea and President Dipwad’s so-very-measured response. Let’s take a deep breath and watch some Maru, shall we? Oh, silly Maru, you and your boxes!
As you can see from the tweet above, the last thing Dolphins diehard @rickdolfan needs in his life is another jersey of a middling quarterback. But when you already own a Tyler Thigpen, Sage Rosenfels, and John effin’ Beck, there’s really no choice but to carry on with your sad — but not Browns sad – quarterback jersey addiction and add that Jay Cutler No. 6.
She went on to admit that she didn’t want to end the marriage, saying, «I don’t want a divorce, but, obviously, we need clarity on a situation that has been of enormous discussion over the last three years,» adding, «I await my husband’s decision of which way we are all going to go.» In an unprecedented move, the queen sent letters to Diana and Charles requesting that they divorce immediately. The divorce was finalized on Aug. 28, 1996, and Diana was killed in a car accident almost one year later. And judging by William’s picture-perfect relationship with wife Kate Middleton, we have to imagine that he has taken his mother’s advice to heart.
Garth Brooks had a lot to celebrate during his concert at the LA Forum on Saturday night; first, he welcomed his newly 21-year-old daughter Allie to the stage as his new backup singer and the two performed a few of his iconic hits together before the country singer led the crowd in a rendition of «Happy Birthday» for her. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Allie’s boyfriend, Jonathan Roberts, was waiting in the wings to ask her a very important question as she exited the stage. In a video posted to Facebook, you can see Jonathan getting down on one knee and asking Allie to marry him — meanwhile, Garth was still on stage singing «She’s Every Woman.»
Allie is the youngest daughter of Garth and his first wife, songwriter Sandy Mahl.
As we approach the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, new details about her final days have come to light, and one question that continually pops up is how old was Diana when she died? The Princess of Wales was only 36 years old when she was involved in a car accident in the Alma Tunnel in France on Aug. 31, 1997. She had just celebrated her birthday on July 1 with her brother, Charles Spencer, at a gala at the Tate Gallery in London. «The last time I saw Diana was on July 1, her birthday in London, when typically she was not taking time to celebrate her special day with friends, but was guest of honor at a special charity fundraising evening. She sparkled, of course,» the earl recalled at Diana’s funeral. Diana also woke up to 90 bouquets of flowers and a call from Prince Harry singing «Happy Birthday» with his classmates that day.
True to form, there’s been a bit of confusion about the names on the internet, especially from concerned fans wondering if Sir Carter’s name is actually Sir Carter Carter. But the name Rumi actually has a lot of history and significance, especially when it comes to nature, poetry, and music. So, what’s behind the name Rumi? Here are some fast facts that might explain why Beyoncé and JAY chose the meaningful name for their baby girl.
Rumi has Japanese origins. While Rumi is a favored girls’ name in Japan, it is probably best known as the name of male 13th century Muslim poet Jalal ad-din Rumi.
It also has musical roots. Rumi followed a mystical Islamic movement called Sufism; he believed that the world was a «tomb» that separated the soul from the divine, and taught others how to release the spirit through movement and music, specifically by dancing with «reed flutes, drums, and tambourines.»
Rumi’s poems still have a remarkable influence. His most famous poem, «The Diver’s Clothes Lying Empty,» has inspired plenty of literary works — and you don’t have to look much farther than Pinterest to see his quotes flying around. He is one of the bestselling poets in the US.
JAY-Z mentions Rumi in a new song. In the track «MaNyfaCedGod» from his 4:44 deluxe album, JAY raps, «Be grateful for whatever comes / Because each has been sent from a guy from beyond / That’s what Rumi say.»
