NOVAK DJOKOVIC has revealed he has cut out meat entirely from his diet – and why he signed up for hit new documentary Game Changers.

Published

The Australian Open contender follows a plant-based diet but does not like to be labelled a vegan.
Djokovic, 32, has a gluten allergy plus an intolerance of dairy and refined sugars.

That is in contrast to rival Rafa Nadal, who put his success down to toast and yogurt in the mornings.
Djokovic’s parents used to own a pizza restaurant and he ate there so regularly he would even have a side of bread with his slice of pizza.
But the 16-time Grand Slam champion noticed he felt exhausted near the end of gruelling matches or tournaments and suffered a dip in form as he got older.
That prompted a change in his diet and a role as executive producer alongside the likes of Lewis Hamilton in the film Game Changers.
Quizzed on why he decided to be filmed for the movie, Djokovic said: “Well, they reached out to me almost when the movie was done. I wasn’t very vocal about being a plant-based athlete.

“They heard that during Wimbledon last year when someone asked me in the press conference. They wanted me to be a part of it.

“I was definitely very happy to be part of a very impressive group of people, from sport, the movie industry, different fields of life, very successful people who are eating plant-based, being healthy, happy and successful in what they do. That is what it is all about.”

Djokovic’s diet means so much to him he opened vegan restaurant Eqvita in Monte Carlo in 2016.

Speaking of his diet being key to his success, the reigning Wimbledon and Australian Open champ said: “Because of my family, I’ve always had a love for food.

“But as an athlete, it became something more—the fuel that determines how I play, how I recover and how alert I am on the court.

“I attribute a great deal of my professional success to my diet.”

Adele Reveal that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Sent her Flower. She is Starstruck

Published

The ‘Easy on Me’ hitmaker said that the ‘Jungle Cruise’ actor is the one person who she’d be starstruck to meet and she “nearly fell off” her chair when she received a bouquet of flowers from him as an apology for not being able to be in the audience for her recent ‘One Night Only’ TV special, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

She said: “Someone I’ve never met, that I think I would actually cry, is The Rock. I was the biggest wrestling fan when I was younger! He sent me flowers because he and his wife couldn’t make it to my show and literally I nearly fell off me chair!”

Adele was quick to stress she doesn’t have a crush on the ‘Moana’ star.

She added: “He always paints his little girl’s nails and stuff like that, doesn’t he? He’s so cute. I wish he was my dad… Oh yeah, it’s not like I – I haven’t got a crush on him or anything. It’s just, he’s amazing. He’s just incredible, I want him to be my mate. I want him to be my friend.”

The 33-year-old star is a big fan of the former WWE star, one thing she doesn’t enjoy is ‘Real Housewives’ and she fears her “brain will die” if she starts dedicating time to the Bravo franchise.

Speaking during a ‘Power of Make-Up’ video on NikkieTutorials’ YouTube channel, she explained: “I know a lot of people love it, but I can’t. My brain will die, I can’t…I don’t know who any of them are, so I don’t feel like I can start from the beginning when it’s been on for so long. I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t work for me.”

Adele said she had once tried to watch ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’.

She added: “One time I did watch one episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ when they were all like literally killing each other, but it was too much, I was like I can’t, I can’t watch. I’d rather watch a wildlife programme.”

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Helped Induct Jay-Z into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Published

Jay-Z has officially been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame—after a little help from Beyoncé and their nine-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

The rapper’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held last month but aired on HBO this past weekend, included a tribute video of a cast of stars reciting some of his most famous lyrics.

The video kicks off with Beyoncé. “In my lifetime, more than a million rhymes, no joking,” the iconic singer begins.

The video tribute goes on to show a surprise cast of more than 40 A-listers honoring Jay-Z, including Rihanna, Regina King, Halle Berry, Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Campbell, John Legend, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Foxx, and LeBron James.

To close off the sweet video message, Blue Ivy pulls a (censored) line from her dad’s 1998 track “Ride or Die.”

“Congrats, S. Carter, ghost writer. You paid the right price, so we just made your hits tighter,” the nine-year-old Grammy winner says before giggling.

‘Black Adam’ Image Reveals Closer Look at Dwayne Johnson’s Electrifying Costume

Published

on

Black Adam has been delayed for some time now, spending years in development before being held back even more because of Covid-19, but it’ll finally arrive in theatres next year. Relatedly, fans have been chomping at the bit to get a better look at the iconic anti-hero’s thundering suit, decorated with a bolt motif not so far from that of The Flash. Now, with the film so close to arrival, Total Film has revealed a first-look at the costume, capturing star Dwayne Johnson in all of his muscle-bound glory.

The performer shared the cover on his Twitter, quoting his morally dubious protagonist: “The world needed a hero, instead it got me.” Inside the magazine, Johnson promises, he shares his “10 year journey of bringing the Khandaq disrupter to the big screen,” further noting that it’ll be available on shelves this Thursday – so we don’t have too long to wait for a close-up look at Black Adam’s cinematic origin. The suit itself looks terrific, a metallic black-and-gold bit of spandex that communicates strength and tenacity in spades. What else would you want of such an iconic character?

‘Black Adam’ Opening Scene Revealed: Finally, The Rock Has Come Back To The DCEU

Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia recently spoke about the film and his confidence upon seeing an early cut. In his words:

“Granted, the movie’s in a stage where there are no effects done. It’s so fresh after filming. But anytime the movie is that entertaining and good in that raw of a form, it makes us very confident. So [we’re] really excited with where the movie is. Jaume has done such a good job. The movie is big. It’s fun. DJ was born to play Black Adam — [I’ve] got to tell you, if there was ever anyone who is just perfect for this role, it’s him. Then seeing him with the rest of the JSA and all those characters and Pierce [Brosnan] and Aldis [Hodge] and Quintessa [Swindell] and Noah [Centineo], it’s a “Pinch me” moment. It was one of the most fun movies we’ve ever made and also just the coolest to be making something on this scale and with a character who’s going to have this much of an effect on the DC Universe. It’s really been awesome, and I think you’re really going to dig it.”

Whatever the case, we only have a little while (relatively speaking) to wait until it’ll be on the big screen, and we can make our own minds up.

Until then, check out the cover featuring the suit below. Black Adam comes to theaters on July 29, 2022.
