Edin Dzeko: A New Star Footballer in a Post-Beckham Era

At one time in his home country of Bosnia, Edin Dzeko didn’t have enough food “for three meals a day.” Today, he stands as Manchester City’s success story, the striker who could: the man with the team’s second highest trade.

At one time in his home country of Bosnia, Edin Dzeko didn’t have enough food “for three meals a day.” Today, he stands as Manchester City’s success story, the striker who could: the man with the team’s second highest trade – at $43 million. Striker, for us in the United States, is another word for forward, and the sport culture under scrutiny is none other than Britain’s infamous football scene. In Germany, Dzeko placed first in a German media poll, of which voters were journalists and fans, as Wolfsburg’s “best player of all time.”

“I’m very proud of the fact that I was chosen as the best of all time. In the short time, we have achieved so much,” Dzecko said in a Croatian language e-mailed statement to Pop Goes the Week. “I am very happy, especially because Wolfsburg historically employed very high quality and good players.” Three years after he joined the football team, Dzecko became the club’s top scorer with 59 goals in 96 games, besting the previous record set of 57 goals in 149 games.

To put this in better perspective for us in America, our favorite boy toy with a great mind matching his Fifth Avenue ad campaign good looks, David Beckham, played for Manchester’s rival team, Manchester United until he was traded to Real Madrid for nearly $56 million. As history is likely to repeat itself, Dzecko is on his way to superstardom and if played correctly, success in sports and pop culture on both sides of the pond. If you don’t like sports whatsoever, you should follow Edin for his foodie stance alone, as he often photographs his meals on Twitter over at @EdDzeko. Homemade Nutella crepes, anyone? And oh, sure, the looks don’t hurt. Expect an Armani ad in the works from him, give or take a few years.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
