Possibly it’s the break-up, possibly it’s Maybelline. Look, all of us deal with heartbreak otherwise. A few of us change our hair shade. A few of us go on soul-searching journeys. I sob uncontrollably for a number of hours whereas I re-download Tinder for the thirtieth time. For former MLB All-Star Alex Rodriguez, launching makeup for men with the identical firm he and his ex-wife invested in simply final 12 months is likely to be his methodology of shifting on.
A-Rod is not any stranger to enterprise ventures, the previous All-Star began his personal firm — A-Rod Corp — in 2003 and has since invested in different main firms like Snapchat, VitaCoco, and NRG eSports. Now that’s a man who is aware of enterprise. Rodriguez will need to have realized a factor or two from his Shark Tank co-stars, as a result of investing in video video games — or any digital craze currently — has meant massive bucks.
Again to the purpose, Rodriguez teamed up with His & Hers — one other firm Rodriguez and his ex, Jennifer Lopez, invested in again in 2020 — to create their first ever make-up product for males. Now, as a former information anchor myself, I do know the worth of a great primer and basis, so I provide a stable nod and golf clap to Rodriguez for making a transfer like this. Nonetheless, I give a standing ovation for his pettiness. I find it irresistible!
J.Lo launched her personal beauty skincare line earlier this 12 months, and in the event you don’t assume that was behind A-Rod’s thoughts whereas he was conducting this deal, you’re sorely mistaken. I can’t start to precise the lengths some guys will go to get again at their exes after being dumped. It’s really exceptional what some individuals give you. There’s isn’t a shred of doubt in my thoughts that A-Rod did this — partly — simply to poke at J.Lo. Rodriguez has acknowledged that “seeing her run straight again into [Affleck]’s arms was an actual kick within the enamel.”
Not solely is it only a good enterprise concept to normalize males carrying make-up, however Rodriguez now additionally will get his personal line to cowl up his blemishes for when he goes again out into the relationship world. DOUBLE WHAMMY! WHAT A SMOOTH MOVE! The one factor smoother is his swing — second solely to Ken Griffey Jr.’s after all.
I wouldn’t be shocked if Rodriguez turns into a document producer and helps fund Shakira’s subsequent album at this charge, or if he went on MLB Community and mentioned that he thinks Robert Pattinson will probably be a greater Batman than Ben Affleck was. Until the Baseball Writers of America have a sudden change of coronary heart on PEDs, A-Rod received’t get into the MLB Corridor of Fame, however he’s already earned a spot within the post-break-up Corridor of Fame for this one transfer alone. Effectively performed, sir. Effectively performed certainly.
