Metta World Peace Is a Big Right Said Fred Fan, Obviously (Video)

metta world peace (ron artest) too sexy for my cat postgame interview

Have you ever heard an athlete quote Right Said Fred in a post-game interview before? No? Well, that’s about to change.

The Los Angels Lakers beat the New Orleans Hornets 104-96 last night to climb into 8th place in the Western Conference, and thus, they are now in the playoff picture. Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Dwight Howard did most of the heavy lifting, of course, combining for 71 total points. However, Metta World Peace was the MVP of the post-game interviews.

The guy just had knee surgery to repair torn cartilage, but he returned to action last night anyway, which obviously seems almost super human. So what did he have to say about his and the team’s performance?

Well, apparently he’s “too sexy for his cat.”

Take a look at the interview for yourself:

The Lakers may want to monitor Metta’s painkiller intake. That might be the most bizarre post-game interview of all-time.

Of course, Metta was just quoting pop masterpiece “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred. But knowing that doesn’t mean it makes any more sense.
