Rob Gronkowski In GQ: PEOPLE JUST THINK I'M A PARTY BOY 24/7 Comments (0)

Rob-gronkowski-510x600(Magazine cover by Peggy Sirota/GQ)

Footballer Rob Gronkowski sets the record straight in the new GQ, saying he really isn't the wild child we all think and hope he is:

“[P]eople misunderstand who I truly am. Truly who I am. If I go somewhere, people just think I’m a party boy 24/7. Like, it’s a Monday night and I walk into a restaurant and people start handing me shots. I’m like, Yo, I’m in season right now. I just played a game, I can hardly walk.

In fact, he doesn't even like booze:

I don’t drink because I like the taste. Beer is nasty. I would never sit there and have a beer with dinner—it would ruin my whole meal. I drink to have fun, to feel good, to get tipsy. But my drink of choice is vodka and water.

Check it out in the June 2016 issue of GQ.

Fat Chance: GQ Writer Wants Plus-Sized Models Called FAT Comments (0)
 

What a wonderful life this is! #img #wwd #brawn #bodypositivity #effyourbeautystandards #bigandtall

A photo posted by Zach Miko (@zachmiko) on

GQ UK's Jonathan Heaf wants to make sure everyone knows he's an A-hole, so has written a piece on why we shouldn't call plus-sized male models—like Zach Miko, above—anything other than “fat.”

Really? So in order to make sure we are all striving to be healthy (a noble goal), the only way to do so is to use a pejorative description of anyone who isn't achieving what medical professionals consider to be a safe weight?

Does that mean when describing someone who is 60, we shouldn't refer to them as older or mature, but just old?

A man who isn't 5'9" or more should be called short?

To use examples of things that people can change about themselves, we shouldn't say someone is battling drug abuse but just cut to the chase and say they're addicts?

Most of the words I've listed are totally acceptable, depending on the context. There's nothing wrong with politely referring to a category of clothing/larger models as plus-sized; it would also be stupid to market clothing to people who are overweight by putting them in the “fat” section, modeled by “fat” people.

I haven't read GQ in years (how much longer will a print edition even exist?), but I feel confident that if I looked through it, I'd find plenty of articles that mince words. It's called being polite and respecting social niceties. To throw that away all the time is a great way to let everyone know you're a toxic jerk with a big, fat mouth.

King Cobra: How To Get Ronaldo's Ronaldo-ness Comments (0)

569fa8881f00005000216461Girl power!

Cristiano Ronaldo covers GQ's Body Issue, and the images of him are definitely giving me body issues.

In the piece, readers are told how to achieve the cobra-like quality of Ronaldo's upper body when it's hyper-extended:

1. Pull-ups. “Start off with pull-ups or chin-ups,” says Carlos Frias, an L.A.-area trainer. For pull-ups, place your hands on the bar slightly wider than shoulder width, with your palms facing in. Pull your shoulder blades together—picture yourself pulling your elbows into your ribs—while lifting yourself up until your chin’s even with the bar.

2. Chin-ups. Same concept, just with palms facing outward. “This way’s more of a combination between your lats and biceps,” Brathwaite says.

3. Hit the lat machine. Pretty self-explanatory—but keep in mind that, to determine how much you’re lifting, you need to subtract the machine’s weight from your body mass (so if you weigh 180 and put the pin at 50 pounds, you’re actually lifting 130 pounds).

Rising To The Top: Michael Sam Covers GQ Comments (0)

Michael-Sam-GQ

Michael Sam may not be in the NFL anymore, but he still rates as one of GQ's Men of the Year, posing for Peggy Sirota for the cover.

He says he wants to be a distraction based on his performance in sports, but knocks those who focus on his sexual orientation as being somehow other, saying of them, “Gotta keep bringing up the locker-room situation because he’s gay.”

Sam goes on to tell Andrew Corsello that his coming out story might have been different had he felt he had more of a choice:

“If I had it my way, I never would have done it the way I did, never would have told it the way I did. But the recruiters knew, and reporters knew, and they talked to each other, and it got out. If I didn’t have the year I did, nobody would have cared. But I have no regrets. Some people can argue that I had the potential to go higher in the draft. But I think everything happens for a reason. It looks good to see me in the position I’m in now, because I can show the world how good I am and rise up the ranks. I’m at the bottom now. I can rise up, show I’m a football player. Not anything else. Just a football player.”

He also talks about his troubled childhood:

“Only a handful of people really know how I was raised. Certain family members weren’t…there. They were ghosts. My brothers were the ones who were there. Most of the time, that was scary. I tried to stay away as much as possible. We called the cops on my brothers so many times I can’t even count. Not only for hurting me. They’d abuse my sisters. Verbally abuse my mom. My brothers were evil people. I don’t have a relationship with them now. They’ve both written me letters from prison. For them to dare to call themselves my brothers—I can’t live with that.”

This issue of GQ hits newsstands November 25.
