Aaron Rodgers Makes Cameo in Music Video ‘Get it’ by The Make (Video)

Fresh off winning the Super Bowl MVP, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has gone big time. Whether it was making appearances on Ellen or hanging out with models, Rodgers is capitalizing on his celebrity status. Even teammate Clay Matthews called him out for it.

Rodgers’ latest venture is creating a music label called Suspended Sunrise Recordings. His big signing is a band called “The Make” which released a song called “Get It” on Thursday. Rodgers makes a cameo during the music video. Can you spot him? Check out the video:

Yup, that was Aaron Rodgers who stole Peyton Manning’s Sprint commercial costume. You would hardly recognize him, right?

If you’re wondering how Rodgers got hooked up with the band, it’s due to a hometown connection. The Make is from Chico, Aaron’s hometown. He had been a fan of a previous band featuring two of The Make’s members, and he liked what he heard of their new band.

Personally, I think the music video was better than the song. The lead singer has a good voice and they have a decent sound, but the song itself wasn’t that catchy.

Aaron Rodgers: Packers Fans Didn’t Want Him to Win the Madden Cover Vote

As we wrote earlier this week, Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis actually beat Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the semifinals of the Madden cover vote. Unlike past years when EA Sports selected the player who would appear on the cover of the game, EA decided to create a 32-player tournament and leave the vote to the fans. Rodgers was beat out by Hillis and expressed some disappointment.

He told WKNR in Cleveland Wednesday “I think it definitely would’ve been cool. It was a game that I played as a kid. Not really a game I play anymore, but I played as a kid growing up. I was able to keep up with it through my twitter. I know there were a lot of Green Bay fans that were voting against me because they believe in the so-called Madden curse, but I was following it for sure.”

Rodgers may be somewhat disappointed but Packers fans are not. It’s probably better this way for Rodgers’ longevity. There’s a long history of players appearing on the cover and getting hurt, including Troy Polamalu two seasons ago, and possibly Drew Brees last year.

Aaron, you may have to settle for covergirls instead of cover games for the time being, but that may not even be a bad thing.

Aaron Rodgers and Destiny Newton Hit the Beach in Hawaii

It’s getting hard to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and all the women to whom he’s been linked. There have been rumors of him hooking up with Erin Andrews, then we heard he was dating actress Jessica Szohr, and then he was hanging with Stacy Keibler and Mila Kunis at a party. Well it looks like we can add another girl to the list — Destiny Newton.

On Friday, TMZ ran a picture of Green Bay Packers Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers at beach in Hawaii with an unnamed blonde. Splash News Online added many more pictures and a video but they were unable to identify her. But on Tuesday, both Black Sports Online and Terez Owens said the girl in question is Destiny Newton, who we’ve come to find out is from Chico — Rodgers’ hometown in California.

As of last year, Newton was bartending in Pacific Beach in San Diego claiming she had moved there about three years earlier. In her interview with Pacific San Diego Magazine, she said she was going to school for communications in addition to bartending. Destiny also has a sister named Shawntel who competed on Season 15 of The Bachelor. So whatta you think?

Clay Matthews Jokes, Teases Aaron Rodgers About Becoming Hollywood Celeb

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appears to have been living it up ever since leading his team to a Super Bowl victory over the Steelers and grabbing MVP honors with an outstanding game. First he went to Disneyworld, then he appeared with his celebrity crush Ellen for an interview, and most recently he was at an Oscars party taking pictures with Stacy Keibler and meeting Mila Kunis. Oh yeah, that was all before leaving the same party with “girlfriend” Jessica Szohr.

PICTURES: Aaron Rodgers with Stacy Keibler

We said Rodgers appeared to be doing what any Super Bowl MVP would do — leveraging the popularity into media appearances and meetings with hot girls. Teammate Clay Matthews took note and ribbed Rodgers for the exact same thing, as I learned via Adam Rank at NFL.com. Matthews joked with Rodgers on twitter saying “Is it true ur dating Mila Kunis!? Ur so Hollywood bro!!”

SEE: Clay Matthews gives Rodgers his championship belt

Rodgers responded by saying “if by dating u mean met for the first time the other night, then yes. Uve changed bro. Ur so socal now.” Maybe the socal jab was a reference to Matthews being like the Hollywood paparazzi and bringing up the Mila Kunis thing, but it’s clear they were just messing with one another.

Everything seems like it’s in good fun, and I trust that of all athletes Aaron Rodgers is one who can remain level-headed despite his surge in popularity; think about the type of character he has to have endured the Brett Favre drama and thrived. But much like Adam Rank pointed out at NFL.com, they need to remember what kind of focus it took to reach the Super Bowl. Somehow I don’t think partying it up was part of the recipe. (Or maybe they know there will be a lockout and they’re not concerned).

Aaron Rodgers Living it Up with Jessica Szohr, Stacy Keibler, and Mila Kunis

Word has it Aaron Rodgers spoke with Tom Brady recently, and Tom told him there’s much more to winning a Super Bowl MVP than some jewelry and hardware.  Okay, maybe they didn’t talk, but Rodgers certainly seems to be figuring that out on his own.  The Packers quarterback is already reportedly dating Jessica Szohr, but Jessica hasn’t exactly been able to keep the hotties off of No. 12.  Word has it he was a popular commodity at the Circa Hollywood Dominos Oscar party last Thursday.  Here are some pictures of Aaron Rodgers with Stacy Keibler from Keibler’s twitter:

Now that we know the recent star of the Ellen Show and Keibler were acting like 15-year-old girls updating their Myspace account, we should also note that the NY Post reported Rodgers was “flirting” with Mila Kunis at the same party and both seemed to be very into each other

Aaron Rodgers Interview with Celebrity Crush Ellen Is a Hit

One of the reasons NFL teams have such a difficult time repeating as Super Bowl champions is because they’re busy celebrating their win months after the game ended while other players are working hard to supplant them. Case in point: MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers who appeared on Ellen Tuesday for a friendly interview. Before you watch, you have to understand that during one of the media sessions Super Bowl week Rodgers declared Ellen was his “celebrity crush.” That pretty much set the stage for this fun interview between the two:

Ellen did a great job interjecting her unique personality throughout the interview and Rodgers played along perfectly. They make a cute couple — not that Ellen is interested, or Aaron for that matter.

Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers Disneyland Commercial (Video)

Aaron Rodgers continued his hot stretch in the playoffs with a fantastic performance in the Super Bowl. The third-year starter went 24/39 (including several drops) for 309 yards and three touchdowns, easily earning Super Bowl MVP honors. In addition to a Chevy Camaro which let’s be real, a starting NFL quarterback needs less than a linebacker chasing him, the Super Bowl MVP gets a trip to Disneyland. Rodgers made the announcement — a paid sponsorship from Disney — in some of the easiest money he’s made. Here’s the Aaron Rodgers Disneyland commercial video that I will never get sick of seeing:

Congratulations, Rodgers, between the masterful way you handled replacing Brett Favre to the superior work ethic shown throughout the year, you certainly earned it.
