Manny Pacquiao wants to give everyone a good show when he fights Floyd Mayweather May 2nd.
Before the fight, however, listeners will be in for an interesting treat. It seems the Filipino fighter will be singing his own entrance music. I guess Justin Bieber was booked.

A fairly tempered response, but I’ll admit that I expected…

During this time, I finished my undergraduate degree, had a baby, completed an MFA, and wrote the first draft of my memoir. You could say—I guess—that my then-husband sponsored me during that time. Still, although he was the primary breadwinner, I didn’t spend my days lounging around sipping mimosas in puddles of sunshine while lazily scrawling my manuscript. Things were still tough, and the day that I walked out on my marriage, I said firmly and clearly to anyone who would listen: I will never be financially dependent on my partner again.
