STARBOY [ stahr-boi ]:
One who has a certain aura. It is not just outrageous articles of clothing, fancy cars, or flashy haircuts. Each Starboy has his own signature; one unidentifiable trait that earns him a spot on the exclusive list.
Je ne seis quoi is not the exception, it is the rule.
From a last name few could pronounce, to a household name, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken the world by storm. Long before he became a STARBOY, it looked as if he was never going to fulfill his potential. Now at 27 years old, he is one of the world’s best strikers. His unlikely rise to the top of the goal-scoring charts took years of dedication and persistence before his talent was seen on the world's greatest stage.
"I always set myself new goals. I always want to do better than I did in the past. I always want to achieve things I never achieved before"
Benzema’s personality and aura has taken a while to catch up with him, but now his reputation far precedes him. From pictures of his Bugatti on Instagram, to Hollywood nights with Rihanna, no other player has such contrasting personalities from the pitch to the streets. From a Starboy outside of the white boundaries of the football pitch, to quiet and humble on it. Benzema is a true Starboy.
"I'm not a cat anymore. Now, I'm a lion."
"We have got Paulo Dybala – the new Sergio Agüero"
"I was just a kid who had arrived in the world of professional football and thought he could do anything he wanted."
