A-Rod used to be one of the hottest baseball players out there today. But because of the steroid issue and the rumor that he hooked up with Madonna and left his family, he hasn’t made a comeback yet. Now, Alex Rodriguez graces the cover of Details magazine and kisses himself on the mirror, poses with his muscles flexed and other weird poses.
On the cover, “Confessions of a Damned Yankee,” Steven Klein takes photos of the Alex Rodriguez pre-steroid news. According to a ‘Details’ spokesperson, the shoot was done last December, before it was found out that A-Rod used steroids back in 2003. Apparently, the photo shoot and interview landed in the middle of the controversy. But in the magazine, A-rod tries to set the record straight one awkward photo at a time.
What does his interview reveal? He answers “the Madonna” question, saying “Well, we’re friends…I have a lot of respect for her. She’s very smart and she’s passionate about everything she does. If there ever was any situation, she’s a great ear to have, you know?”
When asked how he feels being in the middle of various scandals, he answered, “We live in a world right now where everyone’s keeping score. And it doesn’t stop when the games end…They’ve crossed over. And you have the Internet stuff, and all these phones…It’s very intense.”
