Is A-Rod hiding heartbreak and blemishes with men's makeup line? Internet puns he 'wanna makeup with JLo'
Baseball icon and Jennifer Lopez's former boyfriend Alex Rodriguez appears to have bounced back from heartbreak after J-Lo was rumored to have reunited with ex Ben Affleck. In an Instagram post on May 21, 2021, he announced the launch of a cosmetics line for men. He has reportedly collaborated with Hims & Hers to design a new concealer stick dubbed The Blur Stick.
"It’s a convenient concealer specifically designed for men that can be used for skin imperfections," he wrote about the product. However, not everyone was excited about A-Rod's venture into the domain of makeup, as he was mocked by sexist trolls on Twitter. "Remember when I said America is losing their Alpha Males?....Arod just came out with male makeup...," a user tweeted. However, A-Rod fans have pointed out that he was often spotted with makeup on so a product like this was long expected.

Is A-Rod 'concealing' his heartbreak?
While launching the Blur Stick for Hims, A-Rod shared how often he needed a concealer to hide his blemishes and razor bumps. "Working with the Hims & Hers team, I wanted to create a product that solved an issue I faced every day. I realized as I was jumping from meeting to meeting, I needed something quick and easy in my routine to conceal blemishes or razor bumps," he wrote.
Specifically designed for men, the concealer is believed to hide skin imperfections and has been endorsed by A-Rod as 'very handy'.
"How do you go from a Golden Glove winner to a Golden Glow winner?" Hims & Hers wrote while describing the new A-Rod product.
Besides makeup, the MLB star is also expected to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves team soon. According to Miami Herald, A-Rod has reached a deal to purchase the team and will soon be spending more time there.
Recently, an insider source revealed that J-Lo's former beau is yet a long way to heal from his breakup. "Alex is still very sore and in a world of pain. It’s the first time anyone can remember him being dumped like this, at least publicly," the source shared.
'Some of us men do wear makeup'
Twitterati appeared to be in a battle over A-Rod's new makeup line, as sexist trolls were shut down by A-Rod fans and rational thinkers. Another section of users also associated his new venture with his recent breakup. "A-Rod wanna makeup with JLo so bad. Hard to see him hurting like this," a user punned.
A troll wrote, "I’m trying to wrap my head around an athlete putting makeup on then I realized Bruce does it! No true Alpha Male wears makeup, that’s Fact, not opinion!" One user pointed out, "To be fair, A-Rod has always been into makeup, highlights and synthetics," referring to many occasions when A-Rod was found to be visibly wearing makeup. Another user clapped back at the trolls, saying "I’m disappointed to read the gender-nonconforming hate comments on this tweet. if you don’t like A-Rod say so but some of us men do wear makeup live and let live."
