Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton just took to Instagram to share his first post with fans following his Super Bowl 50 defeat. In that post, the NFL’s reigning MVP remains unapologetic for his behavior following the game, saying he refuses to conform for those uncomfortable with his bravado and unrelenting swag.

I will continue to work on improving each day trying to perfect in all my imperfection … I will win … my way … and hope to inspire you all to win … your way,” Cam writes in his photo’s caption. “Don’t be a puppet. Stay true to you.”

Cam was heavily criticized for abruptly leaving his Super Bowl 50 post game press conference. That move sent privileged reporters into a complete tailspin, questioning the quarterback’s professionalism.

While Tom Brady and other athletes have committed the same act, Cam’s departure particularly infuriated former NFL player Bill Romanowski who in a racist move, called the Black athlete a “boy” on Twitter. “You will never last in the NFL with that attitude. The world doesn’t revolve around you, boy!” he tweeted.

Romanowski is the same player that fought with teammates, kicked Larry Centers in the head in 1995, spit on San Francisco 49er receiver J.J. Stokes in 1997, and ripped Eddie George’s helmet off in 2002 … an all-around class act. His words and those of so many others don’t seem to bother Cam though who adds in his caption, “Pursuing greatness is my commitment, and I will continue to be true to myself, to my family and to making all of you who follow me PROUD!”

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
