NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal is set to be a part of New Year bash on Dec. 31, at 3:30 p.m. PT. It has been noted that the music fan will be appearing in virtual reality with a gaggle of high caliber pals — Cardi B, Ludacris, Lil Yachty, Rob Gronkowski and his girlfriend Camille Kostek, Killer Mike, Whipped Cream and, of course, Shaq’s DJ alter-ego DJ DIESEL — for an hourlong rager to ring in 2023. Shaq recently made a racial comment regarding popular actor Mark Wahlberg.
Shaquille O’ Neal talks about Mark Wahlberg
During a recent interview with Billboard, Shaq opened up on his New Year’s resolution. When asked about it, he said the following:
“Just continuing to be healthy. I want to get sexier. I’ve already lost 40 pounds and I need to lose about 30 more pounds, then I’m going to start taking my clothes all the way off. I want to be the Black Mark Wahlberg. Show my nine-pack, all that stuff.”
The aforementioned party has a pretty stacked lineup. During the same interview he was asked how does he assemble a collection of high-caliber artists like this. He replied:
I’ve been in the business for a long time and I meet a lot of people, and if I’ve noticed you are just nice to people, people are nice to you … When I meet superstars and they do something for me, I just tell them thank you. Hopefully I do the same for them, or I continue to do the same for them. It’s about mutual respect. It’s about showing love and receiving love, and I’m just grateful that they’re part of the Shaq’tacular Spectacular.
