Sports Power Couples

Singaporeans love sports and entertainment. Whatever we like, we are curious how our idols live their lives with their significant others. Professional athletes specifically are under pressure all the time. With this, it is crucial that they have the right partner who can support and understand the nature of their jobs.


Providing support and encouragement are the most important thing a couple can give to each other. Here are some sports power couples that we should know about:

  • David and Victoria Beckham: The former soccer star David married Victoria. The couple is considered a mega star and now they have their kingdom together with their kids. Although David is retired, his popularity transcends to that.
  • Lionel Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo: Singaporeans are big fans of soccer or football. We also idolize international players like Lionel Messi. Other people think that Messi is single but they are mistaken. Messi married his childhood friend Antonella and they are now married.
  • Tony Romo and Candice Crawford: Tony is a Cowboys quarterback. He was seen with many women but it was Candice Crawford who got him settled down.
  • A.J McCarron and Katherine Webb: A.J is an NFL quarterback which stole the heart of Katherine Webb.  
  • Alex Morgan and Servando Carrasco: When Alex is not playing soccer, she spends her time with her husband Carrasco who is also a soccer player.


  • Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov: Maria is a famous tennis player and so is Grigor Dimitrov. The couple is going strong since 2013 when they confirmed their relationship.
  • Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn: Tiger Woods has become a household name but he suffered major career setbacks but thankfully Vonn is there to give encouragement.
  • Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union: The couple is probably one of the most high profile couples not only in Hollywood but around the world. NBA fans are happy that their idol is happy with his significant other.
  • Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr: The two NASCAR power couple is dating. These couple have to compete against one another but it is evident that the two are very much in love.
  • Justin Verlander and Kate Upton: Justin is a pitcher and he is together with his model girlfriend – Kate Upton.

Taylor Swift’s 1989

After two years of releasing her fourth album Red, Taylor Swift is dominating the charts again with her newly released album entitled 1989. It was released last October 27, 2014, through her label Big Machine Records. What’s even more shocking is when Taylor Swift herself revealed that her inspiration for this album was late-Eighties pop music. She loved how bold the music was and how the musicians take a lot of risks in creating their music.


She also said that her new album contains more songs inclined to pop rather than her original genre which was country. Critics and music lovers notice that her musical style is different from her earlier songs and albums. To make the music, Taylor and her team utilized musical synthesizers, bass and processed vocals. The lyrics and content of the album still revolves around Taylor’s original style of writing about experiences in love.


She first released the song Shake It Off, which is a pop and upbeat single that can make you dance and strut your stuff. The song debuted in the top spot in the United States’ Billboard Hot 100. The second single, Blank Space was officially released on November 10, 2014. The album contains thirteen tracks all in all in the standard edition while the deluxe edition contains three more songs and voice memos.

In Singapore, the 1989 album can be available through pre-order or you can also visit the nearest Popular bookstore branch near you to get your hands on the album.
