(Excellent use of Le Tigre, Mr. Silva.)
Whether you’re referring to his antics in or out of the cage, to describe UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva as anything less than an enigma would be a massive understatement. Aside from his appearances in some of the most bizarrely entertaining commercials this side of Japan, “The Spider” has willingly spent time around Sensei Seagal, a man so off-the-wall insane that he will literally threaten you with a lawsuit if you attempt to poke fun at his massive ego.
*looks over shoulder*
Apparently not satisfied with the amount of verbal attacks being lobbed at him by Chael Sonnen recently, Silva sat down with Brazilian news outlet Globo magazine, who referred to an interview the champ did with Istoe Gente in which he described himself as both a metrosexual and a user of Victoria’s secret products. Thank Christ, it wasn’t the lingerie.
Here’s the Google translation from the interview:
The magazine ”People Istoé” this week joined the top model Izabel Goulart and fighter Anderson Silva. But much more than perfect bodies, the publication found that the two have more in common.
“I like to look after myself. I’m kinda metrosexual. I like the cream of Victoria’s Secret. So I do the eyebrows from time to time. And also do waxing. It has nothing to do with the fight. Do not think it’s cool,” said the fighter for the magazine.
Elizabeth, one of the Angels brand of creams Anderson uses, also chimes when it comes to body care.
“I was super consumerist creams. He had several, but died of laziness to pass. I got this obsession in French pharmacies. I only started buying so much and did not. My toilet bag was monstrous, but had noresult. Then I stopped and saw that it was wrong. I decided to go to the dermatologist. It was the best thing I did,” he says.
Well, there you have it; the baddest man on the planet is also a long lost member of the Zoolander crew. Hell, he’s already managed to break out “Magnum,” despite only being in the modeling game a few short years.
Word has it that a certain gangster from Oregon shit a brick just thinking of how to respond to this on Twitter.
