1. “You are not injured, you are lazy.”
You’re mistaken if you think a little pain is an excuse not to train. Strengthening your muscles through light training after an injury has the same effect as physical therapy, and it can definitely expedite the healing process. There’s a huge difference between a “burning sensation” and an actual injury. A good trainer should understand the difference, so make sure to communicate exactly what you’re feeling—and try not to exaggerate while you’re at it just so you can feel good about taking it easy for a while.
2. “I’m not a friend for hire.”
We can gossip a little during breathers and breaks, but I don’t need to know too much about whatever you do outside our time together. Less socializing and more training will get you the results you want, so save the drunk glory stories for your actual friends, or…

1. On the eve of the announcement, everyone involved in Tidal suggested that the common folk change their social profiles to the bright, unbearably teal color. Beyoncé took a while to change hers but that’s okay. She’s probably been onboard since day one and a little tired of hearing about it.
2. The Tidal “trailer” was the most intense few moments since Leonardo DiCaprio spun a top in Inception.
3. Jack White, Madonna, Usher, Beyoncé, Jason Aldean, Jay Z, Calvin Harris, Chris Martin, Kanye, Arcade Fire people, Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, and J.Cole sat in the one room and shared the same air molecules.
4. Everyone you wish you knew was at the release party and none of us were invited. Beyoncé was having fun and when Beyoncé has fun we all have fun.
5. Vania Schlogel is a badass.
6. Rihanna and Nicki…

1. You speak in unison unintentionally at least once a day.
2. You act out your stories and know the idiosyncrasies of how the other person is going to describe a situation.
3. And then you do impressions of each other by mimicking them while standing directly behind them…. Even when there’s no one else in the room to watch.
4. You remember what they did yesterday, what they had to eat and when because they recounted literally every detail of their day to you.
5. They are always a character in your stories, even if they weren’t there, because you always just assume they were.
6. Your banter is on another level. It’s a beautifully smooth give and take and it’s especially hilarious because you can anticipate what they’re going to say next.
7. When your roommate is gone for more than an hour, you cook up a…

All-Star Weekend has the sports world buzzing with excitement, but Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James‘ latest interview is hitting a more serious note and revealing that, even as a star player, he’s concerned about the precautions his black sons have to take to avoid becoming victims of police brutality.
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, James touched on the Ohio police shooting that left 12-year-old Tamir Rice dead last November — an event that resonates with the 30-year-old father of two. When asked if he’s had the “talk” with his sons, LeBron said:
“I have those conversations with my boys. They have tons of play guns. None of them look real. We have Nerf guns that are lime green and purple and yellow,” he says. “But I don’t even let them take them out of the house.”
Tamir was playing at a park with a toy gun when he…

In an odd twist to the ongoing saga between Diddy/Drake/Suge Knight/Birdman and Lil Wayne, Rap-A-Lot CEO J. Prince decided to weigh in on the situation. And although the tone and level of verbiage used in this “courtesy call” is quite serious, you can’t help but laugh a little, as it begins like that of a classic R&B record. Think, “Knockin The Boots” by H-Town. With Prince being a Houston native, it makes this all the more comedic. Listen in.
So what exactly is J. Prince talking about, you may ask. This all goes back to 2007 when the Texas OG’s company, Young Empire Music Group, allegedly discovered Drake on Myspace. The Toronto MC was then “signed” to the label, but instead a deal was struck with Cash Money that would net Prince’s group 22% of Drizzy’s advances along with additional profits. According…
