Usually, we’re happy to see a celebrity enjoying a cigar, but you really have to draw the line somewhere. This week, a celeb was snapped lighting up—and we’d really like to slap that Cuban out of his puny little hand. In happier news, it’s Super Bowl weekend and Rihanna’s posing in a bikini. Cheers!

Yet Another Reason to Hate Justin Bieber

Viewing a photo of Justin Bieber’s smug, stupid little mug is enough to give most adults the urge to punch his lights out, but last week, the entitled brat was at his most annoying ever. Just a few days after being busted for egging his neighbor’s home, the fading teen idol made a quick trip to Cuba, probably to give his high-priced legal team a little time to get ready for his next illegal escapade. While on the island, Bieber posted an Instagram photo of himself lighting a big fat smoke with the caption, “I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans.” Hopefully, he didn’t try to smuggle any back to the U.S., since less than one day after returning, the bratty Bieber was busted again, this time for DUI and drag racing on the streets of Miami. This led to the first of what will be many mug shots of the 19-year-old singer, who is not likely to get an endorsement deal from a cigar company anytime soon. Save the smokes for the grownups, OK?

You’ll Get a Kick from the Air Jordan 6 “Championship Cigar”


What should the well-dressed cigar aficionado wear to shoot a few hoops with the guys—or watch the NBA playoffs on TV? This photo of a new sneaker inspired by legendary NBA player and cigar lover Michael Jordan leaked Monday on KicksorDie, a site devoted to athletic footwear. The sample has what looks like a cigar-colored premium textured leather upper and a lace jewel resembling a championship ring. Also shown are a translucent outsole, red midsole tongue and gold Jordan tongue logo. There’s no word yet on whether the sneaker will go into mass production or what the price tag will be.

Rihanna’s Smoking Hot in a Bikini

The week after the Super Bowl, we can look forward to the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, which features sexy models like Kate Upton lounging on the world’s most beautiful beaches clad in nothing except body paint and dental floss. Alas, none of them will be smoking cigars, but we do have this sizzling shot of the sultry Rihanna enjoying a smoke in Brazil while (barely) wearing a teeny bikini. The singer and a pal puffed on cigars while posing in red bikinis. Look for more shots of Rihanna and friends in a future issue of Vogue Brazil.


Santee Mayor Celebrates City’s “F” Grade with Cigar Tie

Scoring an “F” grade is usually not something to be proud of, but one California mayor wears his as a badge of pride. It seems that the American Lung Association gave Santee the lowest score of any U.S. city in the organization’s 2014 report of tobacco control policies. Other cities in San Diego County also did not fare well, with many receiving poor scores and 60% getting a grade of “F.” Santee managed to get the lowest score in the entire county because the city is one of the few that still allows smoking in public parks.


Some city officials would try to downplay such a negative piece of news, but Santee’s Mayor Randy Voepel showed up at a recent city council meeting sporting a tie printed with a large cigar to show his disdain for the rating. The mayor crowed, “If you want to smoke, that’s your business. I proudly as mayor accept the F grade for freedom.” Voepel added, “I dressed in black tonight because obviously I’m one of the purveyors of death… and I wore my cigar tie.”

We don’t know how this will affect his re-election chances, but you do have to admire the mayor’s chutzpah.

The Cigar Emporium is Your (Unofficial) Super Bowl Headquarters


On regular game days, fans of both the Jets and Giants flock to the Cigar Emporium in Lyndhurst, N.J. to stock up on smokes. Owner Richard Yanuzzi had hopes to lure cigar-smoking Super Bowl visitors with banners and customized cigars, but was discouraged by his attorney customers who warned him how closely the NFL guards its name and logo. Yanuzzi lamented, “They’ve turned it into a commuter Super Bowl,” worrying that the bad weather, road closures and restrictions on tailgating will scare off potential customers. If you’re one of the lucky few who will get to freeze your tails off at the game this weekend, be sure to drop by the Cigar Emporium and say hello to Mr. Yanuzzi at 607 Ridge Rd., Lyndhurst, NJ 07071, 201-438-8760.
