GQ’s 2016 Man Of The Year Usain Bolt, On Winning Gold And Retiring On Top
Nine-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is one of GQ’s 2016 Men Of The Year alongside Ryan Reynolds and Warren Beatty.
Bolt told GQ’s Devin Friedman during their interview that he’s an admittedly lazy person. “I’ll call someone upstairs and say, ‘Pass me the remote,’” he says jokingly. For Bolt, his time off is about chilling out and watching TV.
Bolt can add binge-watcher to his list of accomplishments, too. He recently enjoyed the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie and also likes action flicks and “Veep” (what a mix).
During his off months, this laid-back approach to life is really just a hobby for Bolt, but this soon could be reality. He’s set to train for just one more world track championship in London next summer, but says his impending retirement is because he’s “too competitive.” He continued, “That’s why it’s time for me to go. The drive – I know it’s going to start going down.”
“I like the simple life,” Bolt says. “I’m from the country. And after I retire, I’m going to live in the country. I like dirt bikes and football and stuff. Just nature, and just chillin
#RHoA: Who’s lying about the abuse Kenya or Matt?
Kenya Moore accused of faking Matt Jordan's 'abusive boyfriend' storyline
Matt Jordan, the on-again, off-again boyfriend of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore, is accusing her of faking their storyline on season 9 of the hit Bravo reality TV series.
Fans have watched Kenya and Matt’s relationship blossom during last season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kenya quickly became smitten with the personal trainer who is 15 years younger than her, and it seemed like things were going well between them because Matt even introduced Kenya to his family in a in a previous episode. But couple got into a major fight when Kenya posted a Throwback Thursday photo of herself with hip-hop star Jay Z during a video shoot from her days as a ‘90s video girl. Matt got upset with Kenya and he yelled at her and punched a wall, according to Vulture. Kenya said that she felt that Matt was too immature and insecure to handle being in a relationship with her.
But the fighting continued during this week’s episode of RHOA. Kenya was upset and crying over the phone to her friend and co-star Cynthia Bailey after an explosive fight with Matt. Kenya explained that Matt had arrived at her home, Moore Manor, at around 2 o’clock in the morning and he had been drinking. Because they hadn’t spoken since their last fight, Kenya refused to let Matt into her home and that’s when things got violent. Video surveillance footage showed Matt walking up to Kenya’s garage door and kicking in one of the windows, damaging her property.
Jordan recently spoke with Radar Online and during his interview, he revealed that the explosive fight had been staged for the show, and that Kenya was the one who allowed him to damager her garage door
“Miss Moore requested I do that and certain things to build her storyline,” Matt told Radar Online. “I never broke anything that wasn’t already planned to happen. It was agreed upon prior to it. It was per her decision to boost her storyline on the show.”
“I was convinced it would be a good idea to do,” he continued. “She got the police report to show she has a crazy boyfriend. That really hurt. I didn’t think she would go that far and do me like that.”
Matt mentioned the police report that Kenya filed shortly after their fight, which took place in August. According to the reports from the Sandy Springs Police Department, Matt was suspected of damaging Kenya’s garage door as well as an outdoor security camera and her Range Rover.

The information that Matt provided in his interview is similar to information he revealed in a now-deleted Instagram post where he wrote a lengthy caption accusing Kenya of lying and faking an “abusive boyfriend” storyline for the show. Atlanta-based gossip site Straight From the A obtained a screenshot of the caption, which has been transcribed below:
Please stop lying!!!
The whole abusive boyfriend thing I’ll let it play out even though I was totally against the whole idea in the first place. I never once mentioned any of this stuff in the photo. When you tried to show it to me I didn’t even know it was you……. And you were horribly offended and started shouting and alluding to relationships you had with some of frankly I just don’t care…….. sweetie you are 45 years old and single, I want to be with you.
I was proud of my queen all of the are African American Icon and legends especially to a brother that was 10 years old the most of this was filmedf any of them brothers wanted you they would have had you a long time ago. Sorry it’s just the truth.
I won’t be made out to be jealous or insecure that’s never been a part of my makeup or my character. But now that we’re done filming you need to be able to dispose of me properly. So when you’re interviewed you can point to a pic of HOV (happy bday brother) From 96 and say I was jealous of a photo I never felt no way about. But conveniently leave out how you messaged my publicist to take down the video of me and Marlo because fans kept saying I looked better with her……stop it. Insecure… cursing the production team out. So you could block me from going to Porsha’s Fitness event.
Tell the truth about the fake birthday you planned purposely a day before YOU booked me the flight back to ATL, So it would look like I just didn’t show up. Since you’re the one that asked me to come back. SHAME ON YOU.
If you want the attention of any of those Brothers in the photo then contact their publicist. All respect intended I wish one of them would have married you so it wouldn’t be another heartbroken sister out here.
Everybody gives you a pass. even the brother you called Gay All last season pulled me aside and told me to stand by you and love you right after I barked on him. S/o to Chris. I wish you well I really hope you get what you desire…. You had a brother that loved you.I ’m trying my hardest to be mature. But please don’t lie on me.
Meanwhile, Kenya has responded by revealing multiple other instances in which Matt allegedly lashed out violently — allegations that seemed backed up by the details surrounding Matt’s recent arrest in Georgia in which he was tasered y police in the back before ripping it out and running off into the woods!
Here is Kenya’s lengthy response from Instagram,
There were no cameras around in Mexico when the door was kicked in and police escorted him out. There were no cameras the now FOUR times my home was vandalized. There were no cameras filming when my neighbors called 911. There were no cameras filming when the Vegas hotel kicked him out for being violent and destroying the hotel room. There were no cameras around when I posted bail, paid for tickets, back owed rent to keep from being evicted, or never left his side when he cried in my arms to take him back countless times. And there were no cameras around when he got arrested for a felony last month (for the 4th time in a year) tazed, handcuffed and fled on foot. There were no cameras when he was banned from filming because of his violence.
I’m not playing the victim. I’m fighting back. I Will not continue to be abused by someone who now wants to exploit something I was accused of 5 years ago by a scorned lover as payback to hurt me to justify violent his behavior.
The only thing Matt is guilty of is acting a fool. Yet to continue to abuse me by claiming to be an actor is a joke.
I guess your new side piece, the $100k poor man’s version of a woman is lying about the steroids she bought you too… or the part about sex without condoms

#EMPIRE: Season 3 Returns In March.
Are you ready or nah?
In March 2017, ‘Empire’ picks up on season 3 episode 10. You can watch a sneak peek HERE
New Music: Stream The-Dream’s ‘Love You To Death’ Ep
The-Dream is back! His new EP. Love You To Death marks Terius Nash’s second project of 2016 – his first was the TIDAL-exclusive visual album Genesis – but his first audio drop since last year’s Sam Cooke inspired IamSam EP and the Crown EP.
Six tracks in length, fans of The-Dream will find that, though he’s been away for a minute, the producer’s penchant to craft hypnotic songs is still here. Relationships remain his primary topic in the lyrics. On “Madness,” Dream reflects on how a relationship went left (“I would’ve gotten better if you stayed with me”) and also falls prey to lust over a scaled-back, piano-driven instrumental. “College Daze” is a clever play on a disagreement between two lovers, as the singer insists they’re still the best available options for each other. “Rih-Flex” pays an obvious homage to Rihanna. The soft melodies and storytelling all flow well together, with the sole upbeat song, “Ferris Wheel,” being the outro cut.
Love You To Death ends before it really takes off, clocking in at under a half hour. But for fans of The-Dream and even potential new listeners, the EP does provide a few tracks that might fit on the Cuffing Season playlist. It also lets us know that, when it comes to love, the self-professed “Love King” will always have something smooth to add to the conversation.
