Fan Proposes To Rick Ross From The Audience During Concert



A fan caught Rick Ross off guard during a recent performance by offering him her hand in marriage. Ross shared a video of the girl on social media as she offered Ross a ring.
"Did she ask me to marry her?" Ross asks in a caption over the clip. It's unclear what the woman is saying.

Kevin Winter / Getty ImagesTo the anonymous fan's dismay, Ross is currently romantically linked to Tanzanian model Hamisa Mobetto. The Port of Miami 2 rapper recently spoke about his relationship with Mobetto during an interview with a local radio station.
"I have to be honest, there is a connection, how much you wanna me to tell you about it? I'm gonna leave that to her. So, I want you to make sure you do an interview with her," he said.
Ross added that she is killing it and that he’s very proud of her: “She is such a beautiful person, beautiful spirit and she is a huge entrepreneur and I want to help her take it to the next level.”
Ross and Mobetto were spotted getting cozy during a vacation to Dubai, last week.
Check out the fan's attempt at winning over Ross below.

Matthew McConaughey Says He Is Not Going To Run For Texas Governor



Matthew McConaughey says he has decided not to run for Texas Governor, updating fans on his long-teased transition into politics. McConaughey explained his decision in a video uploaded to his social media pages, Sunday night.
“As a simple kid born in the little town of Uvalde, Texas, it never occurred to me that I would one day be considered for political leadership. It’s a humbling and inspiring path to ponder. It is also a path that I’m choosing not to take at this moment,” McConaughey said in the clip.
He explains that he still plans to support the state of Texas in other ways for the time being.

Vivien Killilea / Getty ImagesMcConaughey says he will “continue to work and invest the bounty I have by supporting entrepreneurs, businesses and foundations that I’ve believe are leaders, establishments that I believe are creating pathways for people to succeed in life, organizations that have a mission to serve and build trust while also generating prosperity. That’s the American dream."
The news comes despite Dallas Morning News conducting a recent poll that placed McConaughey eight points above incumbent Greg Abbott in a head-to-head matchup.
December 13 is the state deadline to enter the race.

Demarcus Cousins Reaches Deal To Join Bucks: Report

   

Demarcus Cousins Reaches Deal To Join Bucks: Report



The Milwaukee Bucks intend to sign veteran center Demarcus Cousins, according to ESPN's Adian Wojnarowski. The team is in need of depth at the position after Brook Lopez suffered a back injury, earlier this season.
The contract is expected to be a one-year, non-guaranteed deal.
Cousins reposted a tweet from Shams Charania announcing the signing on his Instagram story, Sunday night.

Ezra Shaw / Getty ImagesCousins recently spent the 2020-21 season with the Houston Rockets and LA Clippers. Before that, he played for the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, and Sacramento Kings.
Over his 10-year career, Cousins has averaged 20.4 points and 10.6 rebounds per game. Since tearing an ACL and an Achilles in recent years, his production has seen a significant drop. Cousins has been selected to four All-Star teams and two All-NBA teams. He was drafted 5th overall by the Kings in the 2010 NBA Draft. He spent seven years with the organization, where he played the best basketball of his career.
The Bucks are currently 13-8 and once again have championship aspirations with superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. The team took home the title for the first time in 50 years, last season.
Cousins has yet to win an NBA title.

Panthers Bench Cam Newton During Blowout Loss To Dolphins



The Carolina Panthers benched quarterback Cam Newton during the team's 33-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Sunday. Head coach Matt Rhule explained after the game that Newton will remain the starter and that the decision was made to preserve his health.
"At the end of the day we weren't protecting the quarterback at all,'' he explained. "It wouldn't be fair to keep Cam in there and keep getting him hit.''
Despite only being sacked once, the 32-year-old quarterback was hit on several plays. He finished the game with 92 yards with two interceptions, resulting in a quarterback ranking of a measly 5.8.

Cliff Hawkins / Getty ImagesNewton said he was fine with the decision to seat him after the game.
"I was fine with that,'' he said. "At the end of the day it's still about being a professional. At that particular point I had more than enough opportunities to keep the game in the balance. There's no need to put up a fight with that.''
"This is the NFL," Newton said. "Nothing is promised. Just because Cam Newton is on your roster doesn't mean you're going to win. Just because it's a feel-good story doesn't mean you're going to win."
PJ Walker filled in as Newton's replacement.

As West's service concluded, the screen displayed the message: “In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, the creative director of Donda."
Abloh had worked with West on numerous occasions, including designing some of his most iconic album covers such as My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus. Abloh had also served as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear collection since 2018 and founded Off-White.

Alexander Tamargo / Getty ImagesThe legendary designer's passing was announced in a statement on his official Instagram page.
The post explained: "For over two years, Virgil valiantly battled a rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma. He chose to endure his battle privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture."
Tributes from across the world poured out in response to Abloh's death.
"My plan is to touch the sky 1000 more times for you…love you eternally brother," Drake wrote on Instagram. "Thank you for everything."
Abloh is survived by his wife Shannon, as well as his children Lowe and Grey.

Faizon Love Says Its Time For A "Black Elf" After Will Ferrell Shoots Down Sequel



Faizon Love says that the star of a sequel to the classic holiday film, Elf, should be Black, after Will Ferrell shot down returning as the main character. Love appeared as a store manager in the original movie.
“I think Elf 2 could happen with Faizon Love," the comedian recently told TMZ. "What’s wrong with a Black elf? I think America is ready for a Black elf. You had a Black president, you had an orange president, now it’s time for a Black elf. I was surprised [Will Ferrell] he turned down that much money… If they would’ve asked me to do it for some potato chips and $3500 [I’d do it]. He turned down $29 million? Wow. Whoa.”

Jason Merritt/TERM /Getty ImagesFerrell recently explained that he turned down a $29 million dollar offer to star in the sequel because he doesn't think the film will be all that good. In October, he told the Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn't be able to promote a project that he doesn't believe in.
“I would have had to promote the movie from an honest place, which would’ve been, like, ‘Oh no, it’s not good. I just couldn’t turn down that much money,’” he revealed. “And I thought, ‘Can I actually say those words? I don’t think I can, so I guess I can’t do the movie.’”
Check out Love's take on Elf 2 below.

A$AP Rocky Spits Short Freestyle For Fans

   



A$AP Rocky has been in album mode for quite some time. His upcoming album ALL SMILES has been in the works for a while now, as he has previewed some of its songs at concerts and festivals.
On Saturday (Nov. 27), fans stopped Rocky while he was in his car and had him spit a brief freestyle for them. With a hard-hitting trap beat in the background, Rocky lets off a quick verse about the women in his life and his drug use.
View this post on InstagramA post shared by No Jumper 🏀 (@nojumper)
While it is exciting to see Rocky back in his rapping bag, fans in the comments were fixated on his stylish jacket. The Gucci x Balenciaga collaboration he dons is a beige and brown hoodie with the Gucci logo all over the design. The comment section praised it saying "OK but that jacket harder than the actual freestyle" and "That Gucci x balenciaga jacket go so hard."
This video surfaces a few weeks after Rocky spit a cypher with Andy Milonakis in New York in early November. The momentum Rocky is building towards ALL SMILES is real.
While there is no confirmed tracklist for the project, he was recently seen having dinner with Kanye West and hitting the studio with Young Thug. He landed a feature verse on Thug's recent project Punk, but they could potentially have a song together on the new Rocky project.
Are you excited for new A$AP Rocky music?
