She’s all about that body-shaming criticism, no treble. Meghan Trainor was accused of attacking skinny girls in her song “All About That Bass.” Skinny girls have feelings, too, Megan. “I don’t criticize skinny people! I would never shame a skinny person! I don’t know who would want to. I guess they stop listening immediately after I say ‘skinny b-tches’ and just turn it off. But I say, ‘Just kidding, I know even you think you are fat,'” said Trainor in a Fuse interview. It’s a good thing she addressed the matter since there are a lot of skinny celebrities who might be offended and she needs all the friends she can get!
Jake Gyllenhaal lost a lot of weight for his movie “Nightcrawler.” It was too much weight. He went on “Ellen” to reveal more details. “You lost a lot of weight for that film, right?” He said, “Yeah I lost 25 or 30 pounds. Why not, you know? Because the character was kind of like a coyote. He’s in Southern California and there’s a lot of coyotes all over the place and I just thought of him like that and I talked to the director. And I just thought of him as this hungry scavenging kind of animal.” He looked like a scary coyote.
Starships were meant to fly but Denise Richards, who was on “Starship Troopers,” is way too skinny. She is raising kids from Charlie Sheen and has been looking thinner than ever. “I don’t know why lately I’ve been getting so much flak for it. I have a very healthy lifestyle and I’m busy,” said Richards on “Extra.” She even tweeted a picture of a donut with sprinkles to prove she eats food. You know what’s better? A video of you eating and swallowing it!
It is true that some stars showed off a little skin at the 2015 Golden Globes, but one star was showing off the bones under her skin! Twitter went off on Giuliana Rancic for her protruding collar bone and thin arms while wearing her expensive Maria Lucia Hohan mermaid gown as an E! News correspondent. One Twitter user named @LBartlome tweeted, “Giuliana Rancic needs to eat a fully loaded baked potato.” The ones from Wendy’s are pretty good.
Television presenter Alexa Chung used to have a show on MTV but now she does not. Her Instagram did not impress some people when she posted a photo of her against a garage door showing off really thin legs. She could have been blown over by a gentle breeze! Some commenters said she was “way too skinny,” not looking healthy at all, and she had twig legs. She has over a million Twitter followers and probably has a lot of young minds following her every move.
It’s not a good look when there’s an article about you titled “Mommyrexia takes Manhattan.” The New York Post wrote such a piece about Rachel Zoe who “barely produced a bump before giving birth to a boy.” People had concerns that not only had she lost her baby weight, but she had shrunk to an uncomfortably small size. OK Magazine even went so far as to say she “shocked onlookers with her protruding chest bones.” To protrude or not to protrude!
Nicole Richie is so skinny that her friends are allegedly sad for her. They say her bones are protruding and she keeps losing more weight. Even the moms whose children attend the same school as Richie’s daughter had their own opinions about her. It seems that there was a mystery to why she could not put on weight since Richie stated in 2006 that she went through diagnostic treatment with a team of doctors. Richie’s new trend is her pink pixie cut.
Tara Reid dug her own grave with the pictures of her Mexican vacation that she posted on Instagram this year. Commenters accused her of using Photoshop! That’s just the worst thing you can accuse an image-obsessed celebrity of doing. Another fan said, “You are very scarily skinny. It makes me worry about you.” Aw, that’s very affectionate of them and very sad that they care about Reid. She definitely looked skeletal in the pictures where she’s trying to be sexy with some rocks and in a cave.
He was home alone in the movie “Home Alone” but now Macaulay Culkin is recovering from a death hoax. Somebody started the rumor that he died and he is definitely not dead yet. Although he does look really skinny so maybe people thought he was close to death! He posted a photo of himself pretending to be dead on Instagram in order to tell his fans that he is alive and well. It was tribute to the movie “Weekend at Bernie’s” with somebody holding him up from behind.
The haters gonna hate and the players gonna play but Taylor Swift can’t shake off these rumors of “wasting away” so easily! She is skinny enough that people might start to worry about her. The Star magazine said that her constant workouts and nonstop partying had her dropping weight fast. They said she has dropped down to a size sub-zero. Okay, now we’re comparing Taylor Swift to the Mortal Kombat video game character Sub-Zero. Where’s Scorpion when you need him?
Ariana Grande has one less problem with the gap between her thighs. “I like Ariana Grande’s nice thigh-gap. She’s got good legs,” said Meghan Trainor. The thigh gap is a bunch of negative space between the thighs. The trend has become more popular as a status symbol and some people use it as an inspiration for weight loss and dieting. Grande was criticized for her weight loss since the days when she was a more full-figured girl on the show “Victorious.”
Julie Bowen may or may not be only 108 pounds. OK Magazine spoke with a wellness expert named Alicia Hunter who said, “Her chest looks very bony and her arms too sinewy. There is such a thing as running yourself into the ground!” The producers of her show “Modern Family” even warned Bowen to stop dieting since she looks terrible on camera. Somebody said she looks like a bag of sticks!
Kate Bosworth is no stranger to the anorexia rumors. She married a director named Michael Polish and people thought that she would stop her harmful eating habits that lead her to be anorexic but it didn’t happen. Other rumors stated that he is coaxing her to keep shrinking her weight, according to Classicalite. She had a part as the eldest daughter in “Still Alice” which is the movie Julianna Moore won an Oscar for.
When they’re talking about your skinny body, never wear a skeleton shirt. Emma Roberts did that in 2012 when she was walking around in West Hollywood and people could literally see her ribcage. She said she took pole dancing classes to work out and hang out with friends. Then in 2014, somebody saw Roberts clean out an entire section of liquid meals at a Whole Foods store. Although, liquid meals go bad after a few days so that means she probably ended up with a lot of expired liquid meals.
Adam Levine was not too pitchy at his 2015 Oscars performance with all of those twinkling stars. Did they even show his wife Behati Prinsloo? She is very skinny so you may not have noticed her. People Magazine gave a glimpse of her diet in 2014. She eats buckwheat cereal with almond milk for breakfast, 5 ounces of grilled chicken breast with a quinoa salad for lunch, a handful of nuts for a snack, and six pieces of sushi with brown rice for dinner. She apparently drinks 3 liters of water a day but that seems like a lot.
In 2012, Karlie Kloss made the news for her Numero magazine airbrushing. The thing is, they tried to alter her to make her look fatter! So even magazines can think that models are too skinny. Kloss would have you believe that she is just a regular cookie-loving girl. “The night before photo shoots, I wasn’t going out to dinner or partying, so to pass the time I’d make cookies with my red Kitchen Aid mixer,” said Kloss to the Daily Mail.
Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”
While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China.
A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV.
Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’”
If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease.
At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.
At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.
They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:
- Wash their hands frequently
- Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
- Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
- Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
- Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C
The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.
As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.
If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.
Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?
Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.
As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.
Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.
So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?
According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”
Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)
However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.
Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.
So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.
Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single
Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.
That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.
Work Gets in the Way:
Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.
The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.
Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.
Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.
Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.
The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.
Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.
Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
