Once a upon a time, a girl and her parents decided to go to the museum. The little girl was having a great time. The dad decided to go to the Bugs of the World part, and the mother and daughter went in with him. The little girl was okay, until she saw butterflies. All around the wall the insects were on display. The little girl started to cry and ran out the exhibit in tears, and she has been scared ever since.
Well if you are wondering who was the little girl...it was me.
Yes, I have a huge, out of the world fear of butterflies, and to this day, I'm still scared. It's silly to say, but it's true. I never thought that a 16-year-old would be scared of a tiny little thing. So many times I tried to get over my fear, and it was a total flop. I'll keep trying though. Yep, I'm a scary cat.
But if you have any weird fears like I have, leave a comment, and I will get back to you and we can talk about out fears together. Until next time kids!
The members of One Direction - Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson - have really outdone themselves with their new album Made in the A.M. The band went through a lot this past year, with the departure of the fifth member, Zayn Malik, but that didn't stop them. They only grew stronger and proved that nobody can drag them down (song lyrics intended). The release of this album was especially emotional because One Direction is taking a well deserved hiatus this upcoming year, after non-stop touring and recording for the past five years.
Made in the A.M. is so difficult for me to express in words; it left me speechless. It is brilliantly crafted and and so real. All four group members collaborated and wrote most of the songs on the album, sharing their inner emotions and personal experiences with their fans. It is apparent that One Direction matured in this album; not every song is peppy and about love, like earlier hits such as "What Makes You Beautiful."
Although both the band and their music have grown up and evolved, they only tweaked their sound slightly; they have stayed true to their original style and what their fans initially fell in love with. Overall, the album gives off a feel of enjoying life and sharing good times with family, friends and lovers. If there was a soundtrack playing in the background of my life, it would be this album. Each song has its own personality, so I'm going to review them individually.
1. "Hey Angel" is the ideal song to begin the album with; the powerful electric guitar came right at me. It made me feel like the heavens were opening up and sunlight was streaming down on me. Enough said.
2. "Perfect" is the classic catchy, pop song; it's the 1D we all know and love. It expresses a relationship with spontaneous adventures and causing harmless trouble, just being young and enjoying yourselves, which makes it a fun tune.
3. "Infinity" is a beautiful ballad with imagery that made me envision a serene, boundless galaxy. It's simply mesmerizing.
4. "End of the Day" has contrasting sounds in the verses and chorus. The verses have smooth voices with clapping, almost mischievous-sounding, and the lyrics describe a love falling apart. Despite the love falling apart, the chorus has both music and lyrics that depict an "it's all good" and "everything will be okay" vibe, making the differing sounds coincide with the paradoxical ideas.
5. "If I Could Fly" is another strong ballad that is dominated by the piano and begins with Harry's raw vocals, which gave me the chills. It's such a real song, and the members reveal their vulnerability and really open up. When the violin comes in toward the end, the intensity builds; it's the most emotional song on the album.
6. "Long Way Down" discusses the fallout of a relationship that was once so strong, and the analogies to the past love are so vivid and make the song heartrending and memorable: "We sailed the ocean and drowned in the waves, Built a cathedral but we never prayed."
7. "Never Enough" combines a barbershop quartet, old-fashioned feel and a pop-rock feel, giving it a cool vibe. It includes the trumpet and has the common theme of young love, but with a different feeling, making it fascinating.
8. "Olivia" has a sound similar to the Beatles' music; One Direction even recorded it at the famous Abbey Road Studios. It's a cutesy love song and incorporates violins and trumpets, and is innovative and current, ironically because of its many parallels to Beatles' songs from earlier decades.
9. "What A Feeling" gives off a mysterious aura and sounds like a track that would be in a spy movie in the '70s. It's an outcast on the album, but that's what lured me in and intrigued me.
10. "Love You Goodbye" commences with the lyrics, "It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end," making it so real and sad and once again portraying vulnerability, touching my soul.
11. "I Want To Write You A Song" is a lovely acoustic song and my favorite on the album. It's romantic, and the members of the band are being such gentlemen. They're the polite, caring boyfriends that every girl dreams of, with lyrics like, "I want to write you a song, One that's beautiful as you are sweet."
12. "History" is extremely sentimental because 1D dedicated it to the fans, singing, "You and me got a whole lot of history, so don't let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever." To further show their gratefulness for their fans; some fans were even included in the recording of the chorus, as a "crowd vocal." It's friendly and sweet and unforgettable.
13. "Temporary Fix" is reckless with the electric guitar and describes the realities of life as a pop star with one night stands, temptation and beautiful girls. It's a fun song and is honest because the band sings truthfully about their love lives, not just ideally of love.
14. "Walking in the Wind" sounds like it would be in the Lion King; it's a colorful song that had me in a trance. They discuss that there are no hard feelings in the break-up and that they'll always be there for their ex-lover, "I'll be by your side, any time you're needing me."
15. "Wolves" sounds like it would be a theme song of a television series on ABC Family. It compares all the other guys trying to get to this girl as "wolves" preying on her and the band members are shooting the "wolves" down, to get this girl. Their lyrics made me envision this scene, and I felt like I was a character in the song.
16. "A.M." concludes the album. It's an acoustic song that is so genuine and portrays how your deep, inner-thoughts come out late at night. The A.M. is when "all [their] favorite conversations]" take place, demonstrating their love for truthfulness. These lyrics encompass the feel of the song, "Don't want to sleep cause we're dreaming out loud."
Two weeks after chiming in to help Ariana Grande shut down body shamers, Ariel Winter has slayed yet another group of social media trolls who left nasty insults on an Instagram photo of the Modern Family actress posing in a bikini with her two nieces.
"Who knew that an innocent photo with my nieces would turn into this?" Ariel captioned a photo of a woman whose exposed legs are covered in terms that are often used to shame girls and women, like "slut," "asking for it," and "prudish." She continued, "The height of a girl's skirt or whatever she is wearing for that matter, does not imply what she is asking for."
Well said, Ariel. It's unfortunate that a fun-in-the-sun day pic has been met with such negativity, but on the flip side, it results in young stars using their platform to foster a sense of sisterhood among girls and women who may struggle to maintain to their confidence when faced with sexist insults.
Hearing Ariel open up about her breast reduction surgery and the personal struggles she endured leading up to it makes her a shining example of someone who refuses to be shamed into shying away from her embracing her awesomeness, and for that, she is officially on our "Shero" list.
British duo Disclosure slayed their Saturday Night Live performances, thanks to some amazing music that we can't stop groovin' to, not to mention the two separate guest appearances by singers Lorde and Sam Smith.
Despite it being her first SNL performance ever, Lorde eased into the collaborative performance of "Magnet," as blue, red and white stage lights representing the colors of the French flag served as a tribute to the attacks on Paris. Like the pro that she is, she commanded the stage in striking pink eye shadow and her newly shorn locks, while rocking the hell out of a glittery black tuxedo dress. And of course, it wouldn't have been a proper Lorde performance without a few fierce hair whips and electrifying dance moves.
Later, host Elizabeth Banks introduced Sam, who joined Disclosure onstage for a performance of the soulful, upbeat track "Omen." TBH, we're still recovering from the singer's breathtakingly gorgeous rendition of Amy Winehouse's "Love is a Losing Game," but that didn't stop us from totally getting into his set.
YAS! The Lorde and Sam Smith takeover is official and we're all the way here for it. Now the only thing we need is a musical collaboration to take this thing to the next level. No pressure, Lorde and Sam - we'll wait.
Oh, snap! All the boy bands we fawned over back in the day just got called out in the most hilarious way ever.
As a part of a totally cray Saturday Night Live sketch, host Elizabeth Banks took on the role of pop singer from a girl group named Infinity Plus Five. Joined by SNL's Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer, the Hunger Games star and her all-white crew performed "First Got Horny 2 U," in which they retrospectively and lyrically drooled over their first crushes, which happened to include former TRL host Carson Daly and Taylor Hanson.
Aside from that little bit of madness, it's clear that the women of Infinity Five had their sights set on poking direct fun at The Backstreet Boys, whose famous all-white wardrobe happens to be one of the most memorable details from their "I Want it That Way" video.
Sorry, old school boy banders - you know it's all love between us but this sketch has us laughing our a**ses off.
We've all seen (and maybe done) the spa treatments that involve putting cucumbers on our eyes, moisturizing with food-based products like Say Yes to Carrots/Blueberries/Grapefruit, and even applying the foods directly to our trouble spots (like rubbing on some avocado to hydrate parched skin) - we're willing to try anything to help our skin. We know we're supposed to wear sunscreen - even in the winter - but inevitably our lovely skin is going to get a little damaged (curse you, sun!) over time. But is there one particular food we can use that helps reverse sun damage? Yep. Tomatoes.
Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C, tomatoes are a great way to prevent cancer, lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease, and even help you lose weight. It also helps prevent an excess of homocysteine forming in the body - which can interfere with our feel-good hormones like serotonin. So yeah, tomatoes can even help us prevent depression. On top of that, it's fabulous for our skin.
We asked Dr. Karin Linnewiel Hermoni, the Car-O-Blend category manager at Lycored, the best ways to reap the benefits of this tasty fruit. Turns out, eating it is a pretty good policy. "Surprisingly enough, the best thing we can do with tomatoes in order to help our skin is eat them," she says, "The notion of 'beauty from within' has been extensively studied in recent years and the conclusion is that while topical skin protection is important, it is not enough!"
Dr. Hermoni says that combining tomatoes with a diverse diet that includes other phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables can be a win-win situation. When consumed together, these phytonutrients work synergistically to better protect our skin (and generally improve our well-being). And for all that is holy and delicious, "cook your tomatoes with a bit of good oil- lycopene an important active phytonutrient from tomatoes is better absorbed in our body when it is cooked with oil."
And if you like your tomatoes raw, add some olive oil in a salad for better absorption of lycopene. Dr. Hermoni says it helps to spice things up, too: "science suggests that adding spices like Turmeric, Rosemary, black pepper etc. to your tomato based dish can help the active ingredients work best to protect our skin from oxidation, inflammation and sun damage."
We don't know about you guys, but we're going to start eating more of this gorgeous little nightshade...because the sun can do a lot of damage - even in winter. And eating tomatoes sounds a little more fun than rubbing it on our skin (chili, anyone?!).
If you've ever coveted Emma Stone's cute freckles, you're in luck: a new makeup company is making DIY freckles a possibility.
The makeup company behind the cheekily-named freckle-making product Freck Yourself has recently launched a Kickstarter in order to bring natural looking freckles to the public. The Freck Yourself kit comes with stencils and a rollerball applicator, which you simply draw on over the stencil to reveal your new look. It's definitely a lot easier than individually drawing on spots, and the special formula promises to stay smudge-free for 48 hours. For creator Remi Brexton, Freck Yourself is a serious passion project: she has always admired freckles on other people and considers them the mark of "wild adventurers" and "unapologetic natural beauty." The new product may not be able to give you "natural" freckles, but they certainly give off the look of sun-kissed skin.
I'm totally onboard with Remi's vision for Freck Yourself. We don't see enough women with freckles in the pages of our magazines or on the runway, and while these freckles may be a makeup design, it still reinforces the idea that freckles are gorgeous. It also may encourage those of us who do adore our freckles to stay out of the sun in order to acquire more: we don't have to give up cute spots when we protect our skin. So far the Kickstarter has not been entirely funded, but if all goes well, the first round of Freck Yourself kits could roll out as early as February. Donate here if you're all about that speck life.
2015 was a crazy good year for pop music. Justin Bieber came back with full force (and two amazing singles), Ariana Grande continued to slay us with her killer pipes, and newcomers like Tove Lo tore up the charts with steamy songs like "Talking Body." Everyone was really on top of the pop game this year, which is why these two new mashups of your favorite songs of 2015 might actually become your new favorite songs.
Canadian DJ Daniel Kim celebrates the end of a musical year by creating mashups of the year's greatest hits. This year, he realized that he had way too much material to work with - so he decided to create two mashups instead of just one. The songs are part of Daniel's "Pop Danthology," and are each roughly five minutes in length. Play either track and you'll feel like you're swimming in the sounds of 2015.
Here's the first part, which features songs like Demi Lovato's hot anthem "Cool For The Summer" and Selena Gomez and Zedd's collaboration "I Want You To Know." The second part features Taylor Swift's 1989 hits and Adele's new sob-worthy single "Hello."These tracks are the perfect songs to kick off your next party playlist, and the best way to bid a musical farewell to 2015. BRB, going to listen to these on repeat.
By now, you've probably heard all about the ridiculous controversy over the Starbucks holiday cups. If you haven't, some people (who clearly don't have anything better to do with their time) are angry at the coffee chain for choosing a red and cranberry ombre design for their seasonal cups over one that was more specifically Christmas themed. Now it seems that a Starbucks competitor is using the controversy to its advantage, with new holiday cups that are guaranteed to please all the people who think Starbucks is anti-Christmas.
Many coffee drinkers strongly prefer either Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts (at least, those of us not on the west coast who have the luxury of enjoying both) but now it seems that some people are more concerned as to what is on their coffee cup than what is in it. This year, what's on Dunkin' Donuts holiday cup is a design that totally screams Christmas, with a red and green design featuring a Christmas wreath with the word "Joy" in the middle.
Check out this side by side comparison of the cups. Is Dunkin' Donuts totally throwing shade Starbucks' way?
So far Dunkin' Donuts hasn't made a comment about whether the cup has anything to do with Starbucks' lack of Christmas imagery, but if they're going for a design that will win over Starbucks haters, I think the company has succeeded. Your move, Starbucks.
Khloe Kardashian has been by Lamar Odom's side since he was hospitalized on October 13 in Nevada. The former NBA star was found unconscious at a brothel and rushed to the hospital in pretty rough shape. He was in a coma for a few days and had multiple organs failing.
Fortunately, he's made a dramatic turnaround and has not only awoken from the coma, he's regained function of all four organs that were failing and has even started to walk and talk a little bit.
For almost weeks, Khloe did not leave his side at all. When she attended Kim Kardashian's baby shower, it was the first time she had been spotted anywhere but the hospital and after the event, she was right back by his side. Since then, she's left for some small things, but for the most part, has been staying with him and supporting him.
In a new interview, Khloe reveals that she essentially had to be talked into leaving Lamar's side, even just to go to the gym, which she didn't do for three weeks while she was staying by his side. Eventually, she conceded.
"Just recently I've been in the hospital for almost three-and-a-half weeks straight, and finally everyone was saying, 'Khloe, you have to get out of the hospital and just for an hour, go to the gym and do something that's for you. Nothing's going to happen to Lamar,'" she told the The San Diego-Union Tribune.
"I had such anxiety going to the gym, but as soon as I left, and Kendall and I worked out with my trainer, I felt like 'Oh my god, I'm OK. I'm a human again!' I just felt so good," she revealed. "But for those three-and-a-half weeks, I didn't think about the gym because I was thinking about other things, and I don't beat myself up about it."
We are so glad that Khloe finally took time for herself - she definitely deserves it. She has been absolutely amazing in what she's done for Lamar with the love, support and strength that she's shown him through this, but we're really glad everyone convinced her to do something for herself, too, even if it was just a quick trip to the gym!
Is there anything Demi Lovato can't sing? Truly, she's proven that she's a vocal powerhouse time and again, but her latest cover secures her rank as one of the best pop singers out there.
Demi took on the ultimate challenge, singing a cover of Adele's new song "Hello" at the KISS FM Fall Ball and absolutely slaying it.
Color us beyond impressed because Demi not only delivers a flawless performance of the Adele hit, but there's so much emotion here we're literally covered in goosebumps.
Well done, Demi.
For another amazing cover, check out this student singing 'Hello' - you will feel things.
Spotify brings users tons of songs at their fingertips, from new hits by current artists to classics that you still love listening to on repeat. But what's the world's favorite track? According to The Guardian, the most-streamed song on Spotify is not an old school rock anthem or even Adele's record-breaking new single - instead, it's a surprising DJ track from 2015 that few would assume earned the title.
Major Lazer's "Lean On" is the track that has been streamed the most on Spotify, which should surprise pretty much everyone considering that the song didn't even top the charts in the United States. In fact, The Guardian reports that it only reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, though it did climb higher on charts from other countries. "Lean On" was actually turned down by both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, which shows just how much this tune flew under the radar before earning a seriously impressive title. Looks like RiRi and Nicki may have missed out. Though "Lean On" may not seem like the world's most streamed song, the tune is an appropriate addition to so many playlists, from your butt-busting "Workout" list to your "Getting Ready To Go Out" one. Listen to it again, and you may just remember why this song scored such a coveted title.
Kylie Jenner looked gorgeous, per usual, when she stepped out for dinner at The Nice Guy restaurant in West Hollywood with boyfriend Tyga last week.
Her super sexy pantsuit featured a plunging neckline that was somewhat distracting, but since we always like to appreciate a great outfit in its entirety, we want to take time to appreciate the awesome accessories, like the shoes, the clutch, and of course, that awesome fringe belt.
First things first, the pantsuit was a brand new Steven Khalil piece that was shown on the runway during New York Fashion Week this year and the bag was a snakeskin Hermes clutch...
According to the stylist who put together Ky's look for that night (mad props, girl!), the shoes were Gianvito Rossi pumps. Lastly, the belt, which we're totally obsessed with btw, was a handwoven YVY fringe belt.
And while we can think of a million outfits we'd want to rock that belt with, we're unfortunately just going to have to admire it from afar because it's $1500.
Just a casual night for Kylie, but a little (see: a lot!) too rich for our blood.
Cartoons taught us that cats are afraid of water, dogs, and trips to the vet, but one thing that they failed to mention was cats serious fear of cucumbers. Yes, you read that right: cats are apparently afraid of cucumbers - at least according to some hilarious videos making their way around the internet. But is that the full story? Not quite.
Though it's unclear who originated the cat/cucumber trend, there are now tons of videos of owners placing cucumbers behind their unsuspecting feline friends. When the cats turn around, they all freak the eff out - and some even jump several feet back. People are so amused by this phenomenon that it even has its own page on Reddit, at /r/CucumbersScaringCats. What is it about cucumbers that turn these pets into scaredy cats?But before you start thinking that these cats just hate their vegetables, animal specialist Dr. Roger Mugford insists that it has nothing to do with cucumbers - just with their shape. According to Dr. Mugford's interview with The Telegraph, cats are naturally "suspicious of the unknown" because it could pose a threat to them. He suspects that the same thing might happen with any other similar object, even something of a different shape.
So there you have it: cats aren't afraid of cucumbers, they just don't like it when their owners place random objects behind them without warning. These videos may be funny to watch, but maybe don't torment your poor cat: no feline wants to be perpetually freaked out.
Tuned into Justin Bieber's new album yet? If you have or if you haven't, just know one thing...A LOT of the songs are about his ex-boo Selena Gomez.
The new tracks scream Sel-Go so much, that even the Biebs admitted the tunes are about her before speculation could stir. While recently chatting with Ellen DeGeneres Bieber revealed that "What Do You Mean," a "little bit" of "Sorry," and a track titled "Mark My Words" are about her.
You can definitely tell that "Mark My Words" is about her. The lyrics just scream their relationship.
Justin also said that he thinks he will get back together with Selena one day. "There's a lot of stuff that reminds me of her," he said before performing an acoustic version of "Sorry."
"In relationships, you see something on TV and you're like remember when we used to watch this? Or I remember this smell it reminds me of the time..."
Bieber also just dropped 11 music videos to go with every song on his Purpose album. You can watch those, here.
oldie but goldie I love my body thanks to ur beautiful movement, i went through yrs of not loving myself because of the way my body was, I tried a hundred diets, none worked, then I finally realized they won't work because I needed to learn to love myself how I was. I was fine. I was psyching myself into believing I was in terrible shape, as if my body wasn't beautiful enough for anyone to love. But I found someone to love it, that someone is myself❤️ thank u for this movement.
We've seen a hella lot of naked selfies on the 'Gram lately, but they aren't what you might expect. These nudes were posted by women for other women, and the best part is it's making girls love what their mommas gave 'em.
Through her Instagram account, The Naked Diaries, L.A.-based Taylor Giavasis, 18, has created a body-positive social movement and lots of teens are totally on board.
The pics are completely unedited - save for some carefully placed emojis - showing scars, stretch marks and hair, the photos are intended to make other women feel good about themselves, and are often accompanied with raw, emotion-laced messages about the struggle to love their bodies.
Taylor started the movement by photographing a friend who was struggling with her own body image. The friend was thrilled with the results, so Taylor posted the photos to her account. After doing the same thing for other girls, Taylor started receiving messages, and the page became the body-positive community it is today.
Currently, Taylor has more than 42,000 followers on Instagram, and told MTV News that she would like to make a book. Props to her and her body empowerment movement!
For the past couple years I've struggled with major depression, I've under eaten, over eaten, cut myself, bruised myself, and really hated myself and my body. My struggle isn't over but I'm doing my best to stay healthy and love myself and your page is definitely helping. Thank you for showing people that they're beautiful, this is a wonderful project💕
Hi, I just wanted to show my struggle with bodily hair. My back hairline goes all the way down to my butt crack. It's such a hard struggle for me to wear my hair in a bun to school or be in a swim suit with all of this hair. Slowly trying to have self love is really hard for me when everyday I wish I could be different. Learn to love yourself people, we are just little bits of stardust in this huge Galaxy, don't let people get you down on things you can't change.
The holidays are approaching, which means that so are holiday parties. You may be investing in cute velvet dresses and lots of cranberry-colored tops for the upcoming Christmas season, but you don't have to don literal sleigh bells in order to add some extra festivity to your look - just add some cool metallics to your hair instead. Gold leaf hair is a new hair trend here to take your holiday look to the next level.
The only thing that you'll need to get this bling-y look is mousse, a paintbrush, and some gold leaf, which you can purchase at craft stores like Michael's. The Fox and the Hair salon was one of the first to pioneer this look - just as they did with glitter roots! - but according to the salon you don't need to be a pro to achieve gold leaf hair. Simply use a paintbrush to paint mousse onto your hair, pat down the gold leaf, and wait a few minutes for everything to settle.
When the leaf hardens, you'll be left with a new gorgeous style, like the ones below:
Gold leaf hair certainly brings glam to your normal style, sans any real commitment. Once you're done look like a gold goddess, simply shampoo out the leaf. Of course, you may want to stick with this look for as long as possible: it's a serious head turner, and will definitely make you the hair envy of any holiday party on the horizon.
Khloe Kardashian is extremely grateful for all of the love and support that fans have expressed for Lamar Odom, but she's especially grateful that her boyfriend James Harden has been so incredibly understanding about everything. Granted, that would be tough on anybody and James seems to be handling it better than anybody could have ever expected.
During an appearance on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show, Khloe expressed her gratitude for James, saying he's been her rock through all of this.
"James has been great. He's been very supportive with everything," she explained. "There's of course times where I'm sure he was really uncomfortable about some of the things, but I'm a very honest person and I have nothing to hide and I was very open with how I feel like I had to handle everything with Lamar."
"I really, really appreciate how supportive James has been, and it wasn't just another layer of stress on me," she explained. "He's been great and I've been open and honest, but I think at first, there was definitely like a transition period for all of us."
When asked if Lamar will be able to restore himself to a normal life, Khloe said she doesn't see why not.
"What the doctors tell me is, 'We don't have a crystal ball'-they love reiterating that to me," she explained. "I'm very optimistic and I want to believe he can. There are no promises, but if he's willing to do the work-I know the speech therapy, or the occupational therapy, or just all the cognitive stuff I'm sure it's really hard for him and frustrating - but if he's willing to do it, I don't see why not." Still, she said it will take at least a year.
We continue to wish Lamar all the best in his recovery.
Charlie Sheen will reportedly sit down for an interview on Today this week and reveal news that made our jaws drop.
According to TMZ, the actor is HIV positive and heading to the show Tuesday morning to discuss it. He supposedly has known about his status for more than a year, but kept it a secret for the most part. That changed when he "confided in several friends" he thought he could trust, but who spread the word that he is HIV positive instead.
That caused several of his former partners to threaten lawsuits against him considering they were unaware of his status and had sexual "interactions" with him. Charlie was reportedly able to settle several of those cases in return for money and confidentiality agreements.
Hollywood publicist and crisis manager Howard Bragman told People he was approached six months ago by people close to Sheen to deal with the crisis, but never took it on. "The interview could open up a lot of sympathy for him, but he has to be concerned about a fear of litigation from former sexual partners. You don't take that lightly."
Howard said he was told that Charlie is "getting treatment, and a lot of people in his life know about it." He added, "It's been going on for quite awhile. He's not necessarily comfortable talking about it. It was very hard to get up the courage for him to talk about it."
"I've known about this a long time, it's not a surprise to me," he continued. "I feel very sorry for his pain. And I hope it's used as a teachable moment for the world. This is a disease that can affect anyone."
Even in spite of Charlie's behavior in recent years, this is still beyond shocking. Hopefully, this will be an eye opener not only for his fans but for people everywhere that regardless of who you are, you can still contract HIV if you are not taking the necessary precautions.
Adidas might pay to switch up your school uniforms, and the reason why is going to give you all the feels.
On November 5, Adidas announced that they will lead a nationwide initiative for any high school that wants to change its mascot name and identity from potentially offensive Native American imagery. Out of 27,000 U.S. high schools, 2,000 use names that could be harmful to tribal communities, Adidas claims.
Adidas will offer the services of its design team as well as financial support to any school that desires to switch up its mascot to something that students of all races can be proud of.
The Adidas Group, which was in attendance at this year's White House Tribal Nations Conference in Washington, D.C., will also join a coalition to study Native imagery in sports and find solutions to the ongoing problem.
"High school social identities are central to the lives of young athletes, so it's important to create a climate that feels open to everyone who wants to compete," Mark King, president of Adidas Group North America, said in a statement. "But the issue is much bigger. These social identities affect the whole student body and, really, entire communities. In many cities across our nation, the high school and its sports teams take center stage in the community and the mascot and team names become an everyday rallying cry."
If your high school is interested in making a change, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's awesome to see such a huge force in activewear take a strong stance against discrimination in sports!
