Christina Aguilera Says She's Done Dieting Despite Still Being 'Hypercritical' Of Her Body Image At Times -


The singer is learning to ‘accept’ her ‘individual beauty’ and has decided to no longer go on diets even though she still struggles with anxiety over her body image. Christina Aguilera opened up about this and more during a candid new interview.

That’s right! The star has been battling anxiety over her image for a long time but despite that, she insists that she is done with diets and that she no longer cares what others think about her and her looks.

Christina Aguilera also admitted during her L’Officiel Italia interview that she can indeed be ‘hypercritical’ about herself at times but that she’s really been trying her best to ‘push’ herself to be the best version she can be.

‘I have clashed with my anxieties often and with being hypercritical of myself, but I’ve never stopped looking for new ways to just push myself further, without also neglecting to protect myself,’ the songstress shared with the news outlet.

Aguilera mentioned that she is well aware some people may not think she’s ‘perfect’ or even ‘pretty’ but as far as she is concerned, they need to ‘get over’ themselves and accept she will no longer go on diets to change her uniqueness to fit any social standards of beauty.

‘I’m not going on a diet, just get over it … Each of us is an individual and people judge you based on differences, on what makes you unique. You have to accept beauty and to hell with everything else. True beauty for me is the ability to know yourself and project what you are in an unmistakable light. Not always pretty, and far from perfect, but pure.’

The celeb also had some valuable advice for others going through similar things, telling people to be ‘kind’ to themselves, ‘We are all walking on the path of inner research, it’s our work as humans and each one follows a different path, so makes no sense to make comparisons. Swim in your lane. If you waste your time looking over your shoulder to see what others are doing, you lose sight of it.’

KUWTK: Kris Jenner And Kourtney Kardashian Sued For Harassment By Their Former Security Guard - Attorney Claps Back! -


Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian’s former security guard has sued them for ‘unwelcome sexual advances,’ and now, their legal team is slamming the man’s claims, calling them ‘absurd!’ According to the security guard, the matriarch of the KarJenner family and the oldest of her daughters, Kourtney, acted out of ‘retaliation.’

After former security guard, Marc McWilliams brought these accusations forward, the mother and daughter are vehemently denying the sexual harassment claims!

The documents obtained first by HollywoodLife detail the man’s point of view, reading that he was ‘subject to a pattern of unwanted sexual advances and harassing misconduct.’

Apparently, both women ‘refused to take action’ and stop the ‘attacks,’ and even proceeded to act in ‘retaliation.’

In response to the accusations, the Kardashians’ attorney Marty Singer stated via HollywoodLife: ‘Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian deny the false claims made by ex-security guard Marc McWilliams. His absurd allegations are fabricated and are contrary to very easily confirmed facts. Kris never acted inappropriately with him. The security company stopped assigning McWilliams there after the guard was caught sleeping in his car on the job, repeatedly. Significantly, McWilliams never made complaints to his employer about Kris until this ludicrous claim a year later.’

The attorney went on to also mention Kourtney Kardashian’s involvement in the case as well, saying that ‘Although Kourtney is named in the suit, she is not accused of doing anything improper, nor did she do so. When Kris and Kourtney defeat this frivolous lawsuit, they intend to immediately sue McWilliams and his attorneys for malicious prosecution.’

Marc McWilliams, on the other hand, detailed in his four pages long lawsuit all the things the Kardashian ladies would supposedly say and do to him and around him, including ‘sexual advances,’ ‘discussing the appearance and sexual activities of other male employees’ with him, making ‘derogatory comments concerning [his] sex/gender,’ ‘non-consensual physical contact’ and more!

Cardi B Reacts In Frustration To The First Presidential Debate - Wants To Step In As The Next Moderator While Slamming Chris Wallace! -


During the first presidential debate, which many agree was a huge mess, Cardi B filmed her reactions, adding her own commentary and she was obviously just as frustrated by it all as many others out there. That being said, the female rapper wishes she was there as the moderator instead of Chris Wallace.

Cardi B obviously thinks she would have done a much better job keeping the first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden in check.

That being said, she did not hesitate to slam Chris Wallace, telling her fans that she was ready to get in there and just take on the current POTUS herself since he pretty much spoke over the moderator and over Joe Biden the whole of the 90-minutes-long debate.

As you might have seen, no one was able to stop Trump but Cardi is convinced that if she were the moderator, things would have been very different.

About Chris Wallace, Cardi said in one of her videos: ‘I can tell he’s on Trump’s side. This moderator needs to be replaced right now. Maaaannnn I wish I was there.’

As the debate continued, Cardi only grew more and more frustrated with the disorderly discussion.

At some point when Trump told Biden not to use the word ‘smart’ with him, Cardi screamed at the TV, telling the liberal candidate not to laugh at that and saying he should have called Trump ‘dumb’ in response!

Like let’s talk about the economy recovery!

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

As the candidates discussed the economy, Cardi shared another video in which she argued, addressing Trump, that when his predecessor, Barack Obama was elected, ‘The economy was already down, so, all those eight years he was building it up.’

That being said, when Trump became the POTUS, she pointed out, the economy was ‘already good, you didn’t do that!’

Lil Baby Says Women Are Running Rap Music Right Now - Men Need To Step Up -


Following the success of female artists like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, it’s not uncommon for male rappers to state that the rap world is currently dominated by women. Hot New Hip Hop reported this week on comments from Lil Baby, who said women were running the show and it was time for men to step up.

In case you didn’t know, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s recent song, “WAP,” has stayed on top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts trailing only behind the song from BTS, “Dynamite.” Many have argued that women’s influence on the genre is currently being felt in a big way, and Lil Baby is just one rapper who has noticed.

You can check out his tweet below:

Coincidentally, Lil Baby was successful this year as well, and he was on his Twitter account to touch on the current state of the business. He wrote, “females winning like a mufucca right now.” While Megan and Cardi B are currently dominating the rap game, Lil Baby has been doing alright too.

The rapper dropped My Turn this year and it’s been sitting in the top 10 for months. As it was noted above, Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B dropped their collaborative single, “WAP,” this year, which has been the biggest song thus far.

The music video featured a cameo from the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Kylie Jenner, although, not everyone was happy about it. Followers of the story know that some fans even created an online petition asking for her removal and replacement with a female artist.

Fans took issue with Kylie’s inclusion for a number of reasons, one being that she’s not really a musical artist and there was no reason for her to be there. However, others noted that Kylie’s appearence in the video likely did a ton for the song’s popularity and visibility.

Others claimed the Kar-Jenner clan has been profiting off black culture for years and paying nothing back, other than dating black men.

Nikki Bella Opens Up About Struggling With Postpartum Depression! -


Nikki Bella was happy to finally become a mother after dreaming about it for so long but unfortunately, she now reveals that she has been experiencing postpartum depression ever since she and fiance Artem Chigvintsev welcomed their baby boy two months ago. Here’s what the new mom had to say!

Ever since late July when baby Matteo was born, Nikki has been having her hands full and schedule even fuller.

Not only is she a fulltime mother now but she’s also been balancing filming for her reality TV show Total Bellas and working on moving from Phoenix to Los Angeles to be with Artem while he’s back on Dancing with the Stars.

All of that has taken its toll on Nikki and she’s developed postpartum depression although she’s been trying her best to keep all of her emotions to herself.

While on The Bellas Podcast with her twin sister, Brie, earlier today, Nikki opened up about it all, saying that ‘This past week, Brie and I, we were in Phoenix packing up our homes, filming Total Bellas. I had Matteo on my own; still had a whole house to pack up —  did have help on that, but you still have to do so much — filming on top of it, and I had a massive breakdown.’

Life doesn’t get any better than this ❤️

And then she decided to hire someone to help out with the newborn and that has only further contributed to her ‘mom guilt.’

‘It’s hard when you know your baby loves what you provide for him, like how feeding time is, how the song you sing when you swaddle him up or how you rock him and those things. So sometimes it’s hard not to get mom guilt or feel like I’m just a failure as a mom when I’m not giving him those things and I’m letting someone else do it and he’s fussy and he’s crying and he’s upset. I’m competitive. I love being the best. I want to be number one. I mean, my whole life, I’ve been an athlete. And I realized I’ve taken that mentality as being a mom.’

Tyler The Creator Praises 50 Cent And G-Unit - Says The Mixtapes Were 'So Hard' -


At one point in time in music history, 50 Cent and G-Unit were among the biggest entertainers in North America. People in their late twenties and early thirties will likely remember songs like “21 Questions,” “In Da Club,” and more.

Hot New Hip Hop picked up on comments from Tyler The Creator in which he praised 50 Cent and G-Unit’s body of work. The rapper made sure to share some of his fond memories listening to the aforementioned artists, and he also praised 50 Cent’s classic songs.

G-Unit – consisting ot Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, and 50 Cent – have since dissolved, but the hip-hop group’s legend has remained. On his account this week, Tyler wrote that the mixtapes were “so hard man” and claimed 50 Cent had a ton of charisma.

Tyler went on to comment on the new generation who aren’t familiar with the way in which artists such as Tyler, himself, have taken the works of others and rapped over their material. He says people often tell him that Gucci Mane rapped over one of his tracks, and Tyler said, “Nah man we took his s**t.”

As most know, Tyler The Creator has been spreading a lot of words of positivity over the last few weeks, including for his fellow artist, Trippie Redd, whom he described as wild and crazy in a recent social media post. Tyler praised him as “sick” and suggested his style was totally unique.

50 Cent, on the other hand, has been busy in his acting and producing career, including in series like Power. The rapper, however, recently produced the posthumous project from Pop Smoke, Shoot For The Stars, and Aim For The Moon which went to number one on the charts. Pop Smoke was shot and killed in a home invasion gone wrong at the start of the year.

While Tyler clearly has an appreciation for 50 Cent and his former bandmates, the relationship between G-Unit has since soured. In recent years, 50 put some of his former collaborators on blast, including Tony Yayo. Although, it seemed like it was a joke because Tony said he would shoot anybody on the spot as a way of paying him back.

Joe Rogan Podcast Under Fire By Spotify Employees Who Want To Censor The Show -


Spotify and Joe Rogan have been in the headlines a number of times over the last few months after it was revealed they had paid handsomely for the right to license his podcast and stream it on their platform. Joe’s incredibly popular podcast will be streaming on Spotify exclusively in the coming days.

As part of the deal, Joe told Spotify that he didn’t want to censor himself or his guests at all, however, this has reportedly angered some people who work at Spotify. Fans of the show know Joe is a fan of free speech and open dialogue, and he doesn’t see a problem entertaining ideas on his program.

Either way, reports claim that Spotify employees aren’t happy with the streaming juggernauts for hosting his program. Digital Music News reported this week that New York-based Spotify workers have been considering a strike and a protest if they don’t censor his program.

Digital Music News says Spotify employees are asking for the company to implement a strict editorial process over the program. This would mean the right to remove parts of the podcast and also block uploading episodes deemed as “problematic.”

The employees have also asked for Spotify to be able to add citations, corrections, trigger warnings, as well as references to other articles that Rogan often touches on during the show. As it was noted above, Spotify purchased the right to stream Joe’s program on their platform a few months back amid the news that Joe would be moving to Texas from California.

For years, Joe has been talking about the flaws of California, including the fact there are too many people living there as well as the political situation, including lockdowns and more. Many members of the podcaster’s crew have done the same thing, including Theo Von and Joey Diaz among others.

It’s unclear what this means for the Los Angeles comedy scene, but some people believe the pandemic will have changed it permanently. Joe’s show, due to its popularity and the election, has come under fire in recent weeks.

Tory Lanez Praises Celina Powell For Being 'Real' In Leaked Phone Call -


Tory Lanez recently had a conversation with Celina Powell, however, if he thought it was going to be private, he was obviously mistaken. Hot New Hip Hop reported this week that the notorious socialite, who is mostly known for sleeping with artists and then talking about them afterward, uploaded a post on her account this week featuring a conversation she had with Tory.

At one point in time in their history together, Tory Lanez and Celina didn’t actually get along, however, it looks like they’re doing just fine now.

Celina Powell released a post this week in which she claimed she told Tory to watch out for people in the entertainment industry, even those like Megan Thee Stallion, whom Tory has been accused of shooting in the foot after a party one night.

Hot New Hip Hop says that Celina Powell shared a conversation she had with Tory in which Tory praised her for being a “real n*gga.” Celina added that she didn’t want to start any problems, but she just wanted to know what had happened.

At the end of the conversation, Lanez asked for privacy, but obviously, it didn’t go down that way. Due to Celina’s history, it’s hard to believe Tory honestly thought the conversation would be kept out of the headlines.

As it was previously reported, Tory Lanez has been in serious trouble ever since it was alleged that he had shot Megan Thee Stallion after a party one night. The incident left Megan in the hospital getting her injuries attended too.

Later, many of Tory’s former friends in the business called him out and people have distanced themselves from him ever since, including the likes of Kehlani and Jojo, among others.

Tory found himself excoriated by the press and celebrities once again when he released his response via a new album on Soundcloud. Tory dropped Daystar, and on the record, he addressed everything that happened directly. People like Rick Ross and others accused him of trying to profit off it, despite the fact he uploaded it for free on his Soundcloud.

Demi Lovato Called It Off With Max Ehrich Due To Hidden Intentions - He Wanted To Profit Off Her Name -


Variety picked up on a conversation between a source and People Magazine this week in which the insider explained the real reason why Demi and Max Ehrich called off their engagement. These days, Max has been posting on his Instagram Stories and seemingly trying to get back into Demi’s good graces.

However, Lovato seems to be completely over him because she hasn’t responded to anything he has said and done yet. An insider who spoke with the outlet claimed Demi recently discovered Max’s intentions weren’t as genuine as she once thought.

Reportedly, Max wanted to get close to Demi because of her celebrity status, which would obviously get his name in the headlines and help his career. While it wasn’t an easy decision to break it off with him, Demi was left with no other choice.

As most know, Demi and Max were spending a lot of time in quarantine lockdown. The insider shared that they were together for practically 24 hours a day nearly every day for months. They were living in their own little world and “everything was just fun.”

However, the source went on to say that Max simply got wrapped up in the Hollywood world. The feeling of their need to dissolve the relationship intensified for Demi when fans picked up on comments from Max in which he demanded Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande to marry him.

At the time, Lovato came out to say the comments were fake, however, she later came to believe that Max was just trying to use her persona and her status to help his own career and further his life.

Even though they’ve called everything off, the source shared that Demi is doing alright now. She’s happy to have moved on from Max and is looking forward to the future. Previously, it was reported that Demi’s family was thrilled to see they were breaking up because they always thought of him as being a bit crazy.

Usher Has A Brand New Baby Girl With Girlfriend Jenn Goicoechea -


This Wednesday, it was revealed that Usher just welcomed a third child into the world. The 41-year-old singer-songwriter revealed on his Instagram that he and his girlfriend, Jenn Goicoechea have given birth to a girl.

Usher and Jenn’s baby is the first time they’ve had a child together, but it’s the third time in total for Usher. In addition to sharing her name, Sovereign Bo Raymond, Usher also uploaded a picture of his newborn daughter grasping on to his hand.

Reportedly, Usher is already the father of two sons with his ex-wife, including Usher V, and the 11-year-old Naviyd. During a chat with reporters from Good Morning America, Usher said he couldn’t be any happier about having more kids.

Usher said before the hosts that his other children are very excited because babies always bring so much happiness to a family. Usher was on The Late Late Show With James Corden recently as well where he touched on the various baby names he was considering.

Usher joked that he wasn’t like George Foreman, and he couldn’t just name all of his kids George. The singer-songwriter said Usher wouldn’t work for a girl very well, so there are a few options he’s currently working through.

Even though he and his girlfriend have an umber of names they’re considering, Usher said he wanted a name that is relevant to the current times we’re in. As most know, rumors of Jenn and Usher having a baby together have been in the headlines for a few months.

It was reported earlier this year that he and Jenn were gearing up to have their first child together. At the time, neither party, including Usher and Jenn, didn’t reveal the news officially but paparazzi capture a picture of them outside of a production company in Los Angeles.

It was clear by the pictures that she was pregnant. The media noted that Usher and Jenn looked every happy to be together. They also wore matching face masks with the Louis Vuitton monogram printed on the fabric.

Donald Trump Under Fire For Supposedly Not Condemning White Supremacists -


During last night’s debate against Joe Biden, Donald Trump was asked to denounce white supremacist groups in the United States by the Democratic nominee as well as the moderator, Chris Wallace. NBC News reported today that Trump “coddled and courted” white supremacists.

Last night, Trump asked the moderator to tell him who he needed to denounce. They mentioned the Proud Boys and Trump said, “stand back and stand by.” While the president did appear to denounce the supposed “far-right group,” the mainstream media has continued arguing that Trump’s comments weren’t enough.

Journalists and political pundits have taken particular issue with the fact he used the term, “stand by,” after saying “stand back.” The insinuation was the first, which appeared to communicate that Trump wanted them to wait patiently until needed in action again.

The Proud Boys, founded by the Vice co-founder, Gavin Mcinnes, has been described as a far-right extremist group, however, Mcinnes has stated in multiple episodes of his podcast that the group was simply a band of pro-Trump men with “Western” family values. Mcinnes has argued that their group was merely vilified by a sensationalist media with malevolent intentions.

As it was previously reported, in May 2017, a group of white nationalists took to the streets in Charlottesville, Virginia, with tiki torches, and the aftermath of the event led to the death of one person. Trump was excoriated in the press for saying there were “good people on both sides.”

In case you missed it, last night, Joe Biden and Trump engaged in a debate which many have described as one of the worst debates ever. The media has, for the most part, put Trump on blast for his frequent interruptions of Joe.

Others weren’t happy with the fact that Biden referred to him as a clown and also told him to “shut up, man.” Biden also said to the president, “keep on yapping man.”

While there were initially suggestions that there would be no debates for this year’s presidential election, both campaigns have stated they would gladly engage in the following scheduled debates.

Armie Hammer Opens Up About His Tough Split From Elizabeth Chambers -


Armie Hammer says that his split from Elizabeth Chambers hasn’t been an easy one. The 34-year-old spoke with British GQ this week about his split from Chambers, and he claimed no one in the world would say what he has gone through is “easy.”

Hammer claimed it didn’t matter whose fault it was or whether it was his idea or hers, it’s a “seismic event” to go through in one’s life. Armie went on to say there are a lot of lifestyle shifts one has to deal with.

According to the actor, “change is a universal constant,” and it’s not always a bad thing. Even if it is good to move on in a different direction, it can still come with a lot of pain. While their divorce has been tough, Armie says their primary concern at this point is getting their children through it unharmed.

As it was previously reported, the 38-year-old Hammer and Chambers announced their split via social media back in July following ten years of being married. They had two children together during their time as a couple, including their 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.

Just a few days after they released their joint statement, Chambers filed for divorce and they cited “irreconcilable differences.” According to the actor, the pandemic definitely contributed to their problems, because there were a lot of personalities crammed into a tiny place on the Cayman Islands where they were staying.

Hammer said the whole thing was challenging. The actor admits that he didn’t have the necessary tools and skills to deal with it, and he didn’t handle it well. In fact, Armie says he felt like he was close to losing his mind completely.

The lockdown on the Cayman Islands was very severe, the actor remarked. He felt like a “wolf trapped in a snare drum” as if he was about to mangle his own foot. Due to how bad it was, Hammer said he turned to therapy which helped a lot.

Since then, Hammer has been hanging around Rumer Willis, and he recently went on a date with Jessica Ciencin Henriquez. Henriquez was previously married to Josh Lucas.
