Beyoncé Keeping Jay Z Around
There were rumors circulating recently of a Beyoncé/Jay Z divorce. Usually when speculation like this surfaces the individual(s) involved let the press do what they want and offer very little insight into what is really going on; even the fans are left to wonder. However Beyoncé collects her style points because she did something rare and quite contrary to popular practice. She let us know what was actually happening.
After days of the public’s fear that the power couple would break up, Beyoncé posted this photo with the caption “My favorite hue is JayZ Blue”. What a relief. Hopefully the queen bee’s favorite color doesn’t change anytime soon, but regardless, nice job earning those style points.

If this were being written on January 1, 2013, Jadeveon Clowney would be earning style points for one of the biggest hits in college football history. However it is not the first day of 2013, and as we all know Clowney is about to begin his rookie season with the Houston Texans. He earns his style points this week for NOT laying virtually the same hit on his Texan teammate. Quite the respectable move… training camp just began and I’m sure he could have and would have made quite the impression if he had taken that RB’s helmet off. I think in hindsight he made the obvious and mature choice, something that obviously is still getting him press and more importantly, style points.

Music plays a big part of the athlete experience. From the highest ranks of the pros right on down to middle schoolers, every athlete in the world seems to use music to get into their zone. So it’s no surprise that so many athletes want to be artists.
Take Daniel Sturridge, for example. The Liverpool soccer star is apparently a massive fan of Drake, and even broke out an unscripted karaoke session during a recent interview in New York. That takes love… and guts too. Above all else, it takes supreme confidence.
In this week’s Style Points, we’re showing love to those who stepped up their game and swagger. From Drew Brees swagging out and showing off to an NFL star getting respect for not going all out, these six went above and beyond.
