'I Said No Pictures': North West Adorable Exchanged With The Paparazzi & Billboard Online Taking The Heat
A few days ago, Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West daughter, North West had an adorable exchanged with the paparazzi, while heading to ballet.
We are all aware about her father frustration with the paparazzi. We've seen videos and images of him getting into fights with them. West was even sued by one of the paparazzi. A lawsuit that has since been settled out of court. While heading to ballet, North said to the agressive photographers, "I said no pictures," a video that has since gone viral. Watch below. Billboard.com Tweeted this morning about the incident with the image below.
The Tweet read, "The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree." The above image, shows Kim holding North, with what seems to be a microphone lollipop to her mouth. Billboard is all about music. Making the charts, breaking music records and so much more. Kanye West is a rapper, a musician who is always on the charts, his daughter is in an image with his wife with a toy microphone, a very important item that is needed by musicians, the image made perfect sense, but not in the eyes of social media. Read the Billboard article and more below.
Without reading the article, Twitter went into a firestorm, suggesting that the microphone lollipop, had nothing to do with her father the musician of the family, but that a microphone to this childs mouth and the title of the Tweet, somehow insinuated something sexual, due to her mother's past. How sickening have social media become? Why would people assumed that such a major publication like Billboard would risk everything to sexualize a child. Why have people lost common sense and are so quick to jump on bandwagons and attack others. The vicious attack to Billboard was so much that the Tweet was deleted, but kept the article. I couldn't understand the connection. I see an innocent child with a microphone and Billboard comparing her to her father. The world we live in now is sacry. Watch the video below. Billboard did absolutely nothing wrong and those who came up with sexual comparison instead of music are the sick ones in all this, not Billboard. They have since released an apology Tweet below, explaining what the article, that no one took the time to read meant.

From the Fashion Police Giuliana Rancic
issue (read _here) to defending her parents and now this. Zendaya noticed a few days ago that the editor of the images for her shoot Photoshopped her hips and waists in images posted online. What is shocking is that Zendaya has a slender frame, so many were confuse to why the editor felt that her body needed altering. She took this as a moment to bring light to body shaming issues, by posting a side by side image of the original image and the Photoshop image with a message. See below.
Zendaya posted the side by side. On the right is the unedited version and on the left is the retouched. The magazine has since released a statement.
Via Modeliste magazine editor-in-chief Amy McCabe: "In light of our not-yet-released November issue, with Modeliste’s Cover Girl, Zendaya and the swirling controversy in regards to any retouched images, I am compelled to publicly address this situation which was brought to my attention yesterday, personally by Zendaya. Upon review of the final edited images which had been submitted to us by an independent editing company, together, as a collaboration between myself, Zendaya and her parents, we concluded that the images had been retouched to an extent that was not acceptable and not true to the values and ideals we represent and promote in our publication."
'I, therefore, made the executive decision to immediately pull the issue in order to have this rectified and have the images restored to their original, natural state which will reflect the true beauty and radiance of Zendaya.
She continued: Modeliste 'advocates positive body image, self love and the empowerment of women' and recalled speaking with Zendaya on the phone about the retouching and learning that she also noticed that her fine baby hairs were Photoshopped from her forehead."
Not allowing another controversy hold her back, Zendaya was seen heading to dinner as the statement continued; 'As we had so many different hair styles throughout the shoot, this was something I hadn’t noticed; however, it was incredibly profound that this was something in particular in which she loves about herself, and what is a part of what makes her who she is,' Amy explained.
'What one person may see as a “flaw” is someone else’s “fabulousness”, she added. 'We are proud that Zendaya has taken this as an opportunity to address this situation, and create a very necessary honest and open dialogue.
'It is that open dialogue with Zendaya and her family and representatives that we have decided to present to you the most beautiful and untouched photos of our Cover shoot that are a result of this wonderful collaboration.
'It is our hope that these images and the truthful portrayal of these unedited images brings attention and awareness to this issue. It’s important that we learn to be uplifting not only to one another, but to ourselves. That we learn to embrace our differences, our unique gifts and those aspects and qualities that make us real and who we are."
After the lengthy statement and the images being pulled and the unedited version posted, Zendaya took to her Instagram page with a short message. "Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue." She is an amazing young woman. She always handle every situation with grace and class.
Carrie Underwood is the cover girl for Shape magazine. She did a sitdown interview and discussed her career, family (hockey player husband Mike Fisher and their first child Isaiah) and how she snapped back into shape after giving birth to her first child. Read excerpts from the interview via Shape magazine, below.
With a new album "Storyteller" on hand and an amazing career in the music business, Underwood is adding clothing designer to her resume. She created a workout line 'Calia' that made it's debute in September at New York Fashion Week. Speaking about her brand, which she is wearing in these images, Underwood said: "Get your workout wear to pull double duty. Since I exercise almost every day, I like wearing clothes that look just as good on the street as they do at the gym. I've always been an athletic-wear fanatic, but everything I owned was either super-functional and not cute, or really frilly and not right for my workout. I need exercise clothing that I can actually work out in but that also looks great if I meet a friend for coffee afterward."
On weight loss after her son, Underwood said: "Make 30 minutes the magic number. After I had Isaiah, my goal was to take control of my body again. I was lucky: I gained only 30 pounds, which is the recommended amount, and I exercised throughout my pregnancy. I did have a C-section, which meant waiting six weeks before working out. Within 10 days, though, I was able to begin walking slowly on the treadmill and around my neighborhood. It felt so good to be active! When I got the OK from my doctor, I started exercising with my trainer. Now we box and we hike trails, among other things. I like to continually mix up my routines to stay motivated. But my favorite workout is Tabata, which I can do at home in about a half hour." Read the full article here. Congratulations Carrie Underwood.
