the-weeknd-h-n-m.jpgThe Weeknd has cut all ties with fashion retailer H&M.

Theapologized on Monday after a now-pulled ad depicted a black child wearing a sweatshirt that read, "Coolest monkey in the jungle." Upon learning of the spot, The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye), who modeled for the brand last year, took to Twitter to reveal that he would no longer be working with H&M.

"Woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo,"the singer wrote. "I'm deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore..."

Though the ad has been deleted, The Weeknd and many others who were outraged have since shared the controversial photo in question on social media.

"We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top," H&M said in a statement regarding the ad. "The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States.We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues."

The brand often uses celebrities as its promoters, including Jesse Williams and Nicki Minaj, who co-starred in a holiday commercial for the fashion line late last year.

Others who spoke out against the ad include Questlove, who speculated that there may be a lack of diversity up the brand's corporate ladder.

"I'm sure the apologies are a coming. And the ads will be pulled. I'm certain there will Be media fixers and whatnot and maybe a grand gesture like a donation to some charity (donations under these circumstances are the corporate version #SomeOfMyBestFriendsAre move if there ever was one) all this tells me about @HM is that the seats in the boardroom lack something...wanna take a guess?" the Roots drummer wrote.

Seventeen year old Haile Thomas, who lives in New York, was named by the network on its "Young Wonders: A CNN Heroes Special."

CNN has described Haile as "a teen health activist."

It stated that her Healthy Active Positive Purposeful Youth (HAPPY) organisation is leading the next generation toward a healthier future by bringing cooking lessons and nutrition education to children in underserved areas.

Haile was among five "extraordinary young people" are making a difference in their communities.

She founded HAPPY when she was 12 years old to address the need for free/affordable plant-based nutrition and culinary education in underserved/at-risk communities, as well as in schools and through annual summer camps.





wasp.jpgWasp nest to treat your lady parts?

According to http://blackdoctor.org/514411/so-why-are-women-putting-wasps-nests-in-their-vagina/, there are a number of sources that claim that wasp nests promises to single-handedly tighten and clean the vagina with the added bonus of preventing cervical cancer. The tradition hails from Southeast Asia and Malaysia, where women supposedly first used the nests after childbirth to restore the elasticity of the uterine wall.

The nests, also called oak galls, are formed when a gall wasp lays eggs in a tree's leaf buds as a home for the larva to develop. The chemical substance introduced by wasps to make the galls is what retailers claim can heal the uterine wall after childbirth, repair an episiotomy cut (a surgical procedure to prevent tearing during childbirth) when the paste of the galls is applied and also clean out the vagina. Also, any burning sensation is supposed to be "proof" of that it is a powerful astringent. I'm giving a serious side eye to that theory.

These things are being sold on sites like Amazon and Etsy. Because the tree regards the larvae as an irritant, it naturally creates a hard shell around it and the little worms inside feed off the growth until they can break free. Some holistic practitioners believe that once the oak galls are ground up and mixed into a paste or boiled and used as a vaginal wash, their astringent properties will tighten and firm the muscles of the vagina, and ultimately improve elasticity.

Meanwhile, doctors are cautioning against it, insisting that it can do more harm than good. A few such unpleasant side effects include painful sex due to dryness of the vaginal wall, the diminishment of healthful bacteria (which can lead to yeast infections) and, like all intravaginal practices, an increased risk of infections, including HIV.

Also, as far as experiencing vaginal burning when anything -- wasp nests or otherwise -- is applied, that's not generally a good sign."Here's a pro tip," says Dr. Jen Gunter, a gynecologist who wrote a blog post in response to the vaginal wasp nests. "If something burns when you apply it to the vagina, it is generally bad for the vagina." Gunter has likewise voiced concerns over other methods of "vaginal rejuvenation," including V-steaming (Gwyneth Paltrow's go-to) and herbal "womb detox pearls," which can lead to toxic shock syndrome.





banana-size-penis.jpgThey say it's not the size that matters.

But many men still can't quash their feelings that they would rather something more substantial 'down there'.

A demand for larger penises has driven something of a boom in surgical enlargement operations.

And now, a New York surgeon has debuted a 10-minute Botox-style procedure - that involves injecting one's own blood into their genitals.

According to Dr Norman Rowe, the board-certified surgeon behind the 'bulge booster', patients can gain 1.5 inches in circumference.

What's more, he says, they could be in and out during their lunch break.

'There is no recovery period,' Dr Rowe insisted to Daily Mail Online.

You come in, get the injection, 20 minutes later you're walking out.'

Explaining the origins of the unique procedure, Dr Rowe said he was inspired by innovations in facial fillers and sports medicine.

'In the last 10 years, we have seen the rise of so many "quick fix" operations like Botox - for the face, for the eyes... I spend so much of my day doing fillers on women's faces.

'I started to wonder: why can't I make it work for men?'

Traditionally, penis enlargement could only be done surgically.





Man marries his CELLPHONE in Vegas chapel

man-marries-cellphone.jpgCalifornia native, Aaron Chervenak of Los Angeles headed to Sin City last month to marry the love of his life: His cell phone.

He donned a tux and his device had a white plastic case as they got married in a ceremony at the Little Vegas Chapel.

With a specially crafted ring on the back of the phone case, Chervenak was able to slip his finger into it, thus becoming one with the device.

The video, posted on YouTube by Kaspersky Lab UK, may feel like a sequel to the 2013 Oscar-winning film Her -- when a man falls in love with his mobile device, but this was crafted to show how humans are not intertwined with their phones more than ever.

"In a sense my smartphone has been my longest relationship," Chervenak said in the video. "What I hope my wedding will do is somehow act as a symbolic gesture to show how precious our phones are becoming in our daily lives."

The event was non-legally binding so if the phone wants to bail on its husband, it can deactivate the relationship at any time. He's also free to see other cell phones when he's due for an upgrade.

There is no word as to where they will honeymoon.
