Long story short, Mark Ronson took over Hot 97 in New York as its a really big weekend for the city. The NBA All-Star weekend is going on in the greater New York / New Jersey area so most folks involved in entertainment are there in the city because they are either attending parties or meetings there this weekend… Ronson was guest DJing, and given that Bronsolino is from the city, I guess he decided to drop the AB remix to his smash hit, Uptown Funk.

Its fire, and if you didn’t think this was going up on TOW, you are crazy. Bruno Mars is Dunny’s favorite singer / performer (maybe ever), and you know how the kid feels about Bronson. Love this joint, here is the original video if you aren’t hip.

Brazil soccer legend Ronaldo — considered one of the greatest players EVER — has touched down in Beverly Hills … and last night he weighed in on the great soccer debate — Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo.TMZ

* Soooooooo, that is the TMZ headline but we’re going to chill out a little bit here at the BP_TOW penthouse because its clear that the OG had no idea what the camera dude is asking him. Lovely click-bait though.

** If you aren’t following the OG on the gram, he is in Cali this week for something… will have to do a little bit of investigating to see if there is any special reason or if he is just on holiday or vacay…

*** The OG likes Madeo… might have to be next up in the TOW Eats series.

Ronaldo bro, where is everyone?!!? I mean, the restaurant is kinnnndof in the cut, but not really. And its not like you can bug out over there, but still.

Aston Villa Sack Paul Lambert – Tim Sherwood Up Next?

Filed under: EPL News, Highlights, Videos, and Scores | English Premier League Highlights, Soccer News

~~ After the success that Aston Villa has had over the years under Paul Lambert, it’s not really that big of a surprise to see ownership pull the trigger and fire the manager after the club slipped into the Relegation Zone following their 2 – 0 defeat at Hull City on Tuesday night.

And ESPECIALLY after the announcement of the Premier League’s £5.136billion TV deal… Tim Sherwood up next?

Lambert released a statement under the League Managers Association :: “I pay tribute to the supporters who are among the most passionate I have ever encountered. They rightly hold huge expectations for their beloved football club and I sincerely hope they are rewarded with the success they deserve. I completely understand their frustrations and always shared their view that the football club is too big not to be competing at the top end of the table. I hope that can happen.

“You never stop learning in football management and I certainly believe the invaluable experience from my time as Villa manager will prove hugely beneficial in the next stage of my managerial career.”
