Madonna Gets Riff Raff-Inspired, Wale Puts On For His ‘Skins, George Zimmerman Goes Gun Shopping?
Finally Friday! It’s a race to get into the weekend, so why not turn the grills on like Madonna? Speaking of turning things on, is Wale going to ignite the inspiration for the Washington Redskins to go all the way this year? Someone who went all the way free and is back in the spotlight is George Zimmerman, but is he really going out shopping for guns? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

Is Madonna going through a mid-life crisis or has she found some spare time to watch a few Riff Raff music videos? The sex symbol is sports a way different look than most people are used to seeing. TMZ has this covered:
Less than a week after celebrating her 55th birthday … Madonna ventured out in Rome Wednesday wearing a shiny gold grill piece. 2005 called … (TMZ)
Are gold and diamond teeth making a comeback? A$AP Rocky has made them popular in New York again and Riff Raff has them pretty relevant in Houston. Is this a new look for the pop diva? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. No Pain & No Gain
Are the Redskins going to win the Super Bowl next year? It’s well too early for those types of questions to be asked, especially considering the status of RGIII still remains to be seen as he’s sitting out the entire preseason. If you needed someone to make you believe, though, it could very well be Wale. XXL Mag has the scoop on this:
Wale has been known to rep Washington D.C. in his songs, so one would assume The Gifted rapper supports the sports teams from the area as well. Apparently, that’s what ESPN thought because the network has recruited Wale to record a song called “No Pain No Game” for RGIII: The Will To Win, a documentary created with Gatorade about Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. The film is about Griffin’s recovery from a knee injury he incurred during last season’s playoffs. In the trailer for the film, you get to see Griffin on the path to recovery—jumping rope, lifting weights, hanging out in an ice bath—as Wale provides an inspirational soundtrack filled with lines about carrying the city on your back and overcoming adversary. It’s all pretty inspiring in that classic NFL Films way. (XXL Mag)
Could this be what the Redskins need to use as inspiration? Any chance RGIII will comment on this ode? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Are You Serious?
Is there any way in the world George Zimmerman could be out going shopping for guns? That appears to be the case with Zimmerman going out and about in Cocoa, Florida for a special weapon to guard himself at home. TMZ has more:
George Zimmerman was on the hunt today — for a shotgun … TMZ has learned.
Zimmerman went to Kel-Tec in Cocoa, Florida … a gun manufacturing company. We’re told he was asking questions about the legality of buying a shotgun — specifically, the Kel-Tec KSG.
The gun in question is a tactical shotgun, often used for home defense. It holds 12 rounds of 12 gauge shells.
And this is interesting … Kel-Tec manufactures the PF-9 gun — the pistol Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin.
We’re told the owner’s son took Zimmerman on a tour of the grounds, including the area where the firearms are assembled. The photo of Zimmerman and an employee (above) was taken inside the assembly plant.
It’s unclear if he actually bought the shotgun while he was there.
The fact he even posed and had a smile on his face is a bit creepy. Could this be some foreshadowing into something horrific happening later down the road? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
