Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace amused the masses on Tuesday night following his team’s game when he explained how he returned so quickly from knee surgery by riffing on the line, “I’m too sexy for my cat” in a strange post-game interview. Of course, that line is a reference to Right Said Fred’s hit song, “I’m Too Sexy,” and it was assumed that Mr. Metta World Peace was well aware of the song and knew the ins and outs of the one-hit wonder tune to which he was referring.

Wait. What? Technically, the song’s title is “I’m Too Sexy
