Serena Williams wears a watch dedicated to the MARVEL Universe!

Published

on

Among the various products that the MARVEL Cinematic Univers includes, there is the partnership established last March with the luxury watch brand Audemars PIguet. The first model centers on the Black Panther character: a $ 162,000 piece dedicated to the superhero played by the late Chadwick Boseman.

Serena Williams chose to wear this watch dedicated to Black Panther in real life. The clock contains the Black Panther in the center: it took 30 hours to sculpt it, as the Swiss company itself specifies. Audermas Piguet only produced 250 copies: LeBron James, The Weeknd and Neymar also wear them, as well as Serena Williams.

At the Australian Open 2021, Serena, in the hunt for the 24th Grand Slam title, easily defeated Laura Siegemund in the first round with a double 6-1 and then Nina Stojanović 6-3 6-0. In the third round she eliminated Anastasija Potapova with some difficulty 7-6 6-2 and in the round of 16 she faced Aryna Sabalenka for the first time in her career, against whom she won 6-4 2-6 6-4.

In the quarterfinals, Serena defeated Simona Halep, with a double 6-3. In the semifinal she was defeated again by Naomi Osaka. In the second Slam of the season, the French Open, in the round of 16 Serena was defeated by Elena Rybakina in straight sets.

In the third Grand Slam of the season, at Wimbledon, Serena was forced to retire in tears, in the first round against Sasnovič, due to a thigh injury. At the end of the tournament she slips to position 16 in the world rankings.

Later, again due to injury, she also misses the US Open and with the latter ends the season of the American. Serena has won 73 WTA singles titles: 23 of these are Grand Slam events (absolute record in the Open Era, men included), making her the second player ever to have won more Majors in this specialty behind only Margaret Smith Court, with 24.

You have completed the virtual Grand Slam, which consists in winning four consecutive Slams not in the same calendar year, twice (in the two years 2002-2003 and 2014-2015). She has also won five year-end Master Cups and 19 Premier category tournaments (6 Premier Mandatory, 6 Premier 5 and 7 Premier), as well as 21 Tier I and Tier II titles and a gold medal from the London Olympics in 2012 against Maria Sharapova.

Not only in singles Serena Williams can boast numerous victories, but also in women’s doubles and mixed doubles, where there are 16 other Grand Slam tournaments: 14 won with her older sister Venus and two in mixed doubles, both obtained with Maks Mirny in 1998 To these successes must be added three other gold medals at the Olympics, all won together with Venus, a Federation Cup and two Hopman Cups.

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

Published

on

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.

Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen’s RomanceTimeline: From Dating To Baby Bombshell,Marriage & More

Published

on

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are coming up on 12 years of marriage. We have their relationship timeline from dating to their intimate wedding to the family they’ve built today.

Superstar NFL quarterback Tom Brady, 43, and retired supermodel Gisele Bundchen, 40, have been one of the most good looking power couples of our time. But they almost never came to be, as two months after they began dating, his ex Bridget Moynahan, 49, revealed she was pregnant with Tom’s child. The pair stuck it out and after nearly 12 years of marriage and two children of their own, remain so passionately in love. As Tom goes for his record seventh Super Bowl Ring on Feb. 7, leading his Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Kansas City Chiefs, Gisele will be there as his biggest cheerleader. We’ve got the iconic couple’s romantic timeline.

After being set up by a pal, Gisele agreed to meet Tom for a drink. It was love at first sight for the Brazilian beauty. Even though Tom was still in a relationship with Bridget, their two year romance was winding down. “I knew right way — the first time I saw him,” she told Vanity Fair in a 2009 profile. “We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, ‘That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!’”

“We sat and talked for three hours. I had to go home for Christmas, but I didn’t want to leave,” she added. “You know that feeling of, like, you can’t get enough? From the first day we met, we’ve never spent one day without speaking to each other.” She later told Jimmy Fallon in a 2018 Tonight Show appearance, “You know, when I saw those kind eyes, I literally fell in love, like, right away. I was like, ‘What?’ He was just so — you know how sweet he is.” The couple began dating and went public with their relationship a month later

‘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 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.
