Look: Jordan Brand’s latest release inspired by MJ’s 1991 SNL appearance

Jordan Brand is paying tribute to Michael Jordan’s 1991 appearance on “Saturday Night Live” with the release of a special colorway of the Air Jordan 6 Retro Pinnacle.

The shoe takes inspiration from the quilted olive green satin jacket Jordan wore during his opening monologue. Jordan Brand also made its own version of the jacket, but it won't be made available to the public.

Watch LeBron James, Draymond Green, Steve Stoute And 2 Chainz Talk And Get Inspired [VIDEO]

This video of LeBron James, Draymond Green, Steve Stoute, 2 Chainz, Maverick Carter and more is the realest thing you will watch today.

Back in February during NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, ESPN set up some fly-on-the-wall cameras to catch some real talk between LeBron and an elite crew of athletes and music heads that also included his agent Rich Paul, Charles Oakley and Paul Rivera.

No topic was off limits as they talked about sports, music, business and the GOATs in every area. Too many jewels to name were dropped in this 30-minute video. However, some of the highlights include 2 Chainz revealing the details and reasons behind his first record deal with Disturbing Tha Peace Records, LeBron’s process behind picking teammates and why Tom Brady can not be considered the greatest athlete of all time. If you don’t feel inspired after watching this, please check your pulse.

To give you an idea of how real this video is, the fellas were drinking the finest wine and liquor and noticeably got louder as the day went on. Good stuff here.

California Burglars Says YG’s Song “Meet The Flockers” Inspired Them To Break Into Houses

A group of men got caught committing home invasions and they are blaming their actions on YG‘s 2014 robbery manual.

Per TMZ:

The LAPD brass is furious at rapper YG for a song that inspired at least 3 guys to burglarize a number of homes in the L.A. area.

Law enforcement sources tell us … the 3 guys — 2 of whom are 18 and one 19 — committed burglaries in the San Fernando Valley recently and were arrested this week after one of the heists.

Each guy was interviewed by LAPD detectives and each one told cops they got the idea to burglarize homes by listening to YG’s song, “Meet the Flockers.”

It is true, the song is a step-by-step guide on how to break into a house, steal and then sell the wares on the street. But YG also had a song called “Sorry Momma” on the same album. Maybe they should consider listening to that the next time they see their mothers.

This isn’t the first time “Meet The Flockers” has been met with some angst. Members of the Chinese community took offense to the line that suggests that people run up in their homes specifically “because they don’t believe in bank accounts.”

Lena Dunham Debuts Boob Tattoo Inspired By Rihanna

There are word combinations you never expect to type, and then there’s “Lena Dunham Debuts Boob Tattoo Inspired By Rihanna.”

You might be tempted to decry such a headline as that “fake news” you keep hearing about:

A bald-faced attempt to highlight the more ridiculous aspects of Millennial culture in an effort to work the #MAGA crowd into a greater fury than anti-incest laws and every second of this year’s Oscars combined. 

But we assure you, this is no alt-right Pepe-ganda (though we are in the process of developing tastes for Tolstoy and straight Stoli in order to make nice with our future overlords), and the self-proclaimed Voice of Her Generation really did copy RiRi’s underboob ink.

Lena posted the pic above today, along with a caption that reads:

“Thank you @trinegrimm for my warrior’s chest plate/tit chandelier. This is my first original piece by a female tattoo artist and it felt sacred and cool and she didn’t chide me for copying @badgalriri’s placement.

“If you’re ever in Oslo, go meet this metal queen and let her handle your body.”

Look, we’re gonna go ahead and play Dunham’s advocate here.

For starters, we’re willing to giver her a pass on a lot of things this week, as “American Bitch” might have been Girls’ strongest episode to date, and it actually addressed a topical issue in a unique way.

(It might have worked better as a standalone project, but that’s a discussion for another time.)

On top of that – we’ve been there.

We’ll admit to seeing a celebrity rock a certain look and (perhaps during a tipsy online shopping spree) deciding to give it a shot ourselves.

There was a time when Johnny Depp was cool enough to make male fashion scarves cool, and like other tragedies throughout history, we shouldn’t bury it simply because we can’t make sense of it.

So Lena saw Rihanna rocking some boob-bunting and figured she’d try to pull it off, too.

As long as she doesn’t start taking racy blunt smoke selfies and using the word “pon,” we can chalk this up to loving emulation and not Single White Female-esque imitation.

Besides, if this is the worst thing Lena Dunham did this week, then it was really a hell of a week.

It’s not like she publicly wished she had an abortion or attempted to convince the world that her cellulite is a global feminist issue.

Lena is like Trump:

If seven days go by and she doesn’t make us seriously doubt our mental health or wonder if we’re living in the Upside-Down like Barb, we kinda feel like we owe her a thank you letter.

We’d like to tell you that we’ll one day write an article about Lena without comparing her to Trump, but the #FakeNews has gone far enough, dammit!
