brittney griner*Baylor University’s senior Brittney Griner is amazing. The newly selected WNBA number one draft pick has landed an endorsement deal with Nike, reports USA Today. Although details of the deal are being kept under wraps, Griner said, “It’s big-time, let’s just say that.” The new Phoenix Mercury star also made headlines last week when she came out of the closet with Sports Illustrated. “It wasn’t too difficult,” said Griner. “I wouldn’t say I was hiding or anything like that. I’ve always been open about who I am and my sexuality…If I can show that I’m out and I’m fine and everything’s OK, then hopefully the younger generation will definitely feel the same way.”

*Wyclef Jean says he wants to convert weapons into music. So he’s taken the figure of speech quite literally and made himself a guitar shaped like an AK-47 ASSAULT RIFLE … and whipped it out on the streets of NYC. Dumb or Smart? Check out the video below. The musician not only explains the idea behind the musical weaponry … but actually lets the TMZ guy play, well actually, HOLD the assault guitar, while he and the founding Fugee sing along. It’s all good, y’all. 🙂 Watch:
