I was working in the sun all day, putting finishing touches on the new deck outside my house. My sister pulled into the driveway, greeted me, and
looked over my work.
“Wow,” she gushed, “you’re an expert.”
Feeling complimented and satisfied, but…trying not to seem egotistical, I responded… “Once you get going, it’s pretty easy!”
She looked puzzled and wondering if I’d misunderstood her I asked, “What did you just say?”
She replied, “I said, wow, your neck’s burnt!”

Summer is the ideal time to kick off those lace-ups and slip into some slip-ons. While we love our white Vans, theyâre just not appropriate for every occasion (especially once they get a little too worn-in). Rivieras, a French shoe brand launched in 2009 by Fabrizio Corveddu and Dan Amzallag, produces some of our favorites in comfortable summer slip-on shoes.Â
When itâs blazing hot out, an unstructured (or âdeconstructedâ) blazer, basically a jacket without the lining, shoulder pads, and other stifling stuff, is the perfect way to remain dapper without looking like youâve been hanging out in a sauna all day. Donât worry, these arenât 80s/Miami Vice jackets, but they are a contemporary take on that lightweight, breathable style. Here are four we can see wearing to an upscale summer soiree.
Now considered an elder statesman in Hip-Hop, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has long since found success in lanes outside the music business, and there still appears to be gas left in that tank as well. In a new Q&A interview, Fif breaks down why bankruptcy was a breeze, his praise of Eminem, and much more.
Sitting down with The Guardian, the Den Of Thieves actor has been chopping it up in media circles of late while promoting the film while also remaining an active force on social media.
In the Q&A, 50 opens first about how acting allows him a bit of escapism from his tough guy music persona. He also goes on to admit he learned the craft of acting and handling epic business deals by way of studious observation. The Power star also gave heavy praise to Eminem, who gave 50 a huge look in breaking up out into the world via Shady Records.
“Eminem will always be my guy. I love him to death [Eminem discovered 50 Cent, and produced his first album]. What he did for me – and maybe me for him, in a way – I can’t quantify,” 50 said.
