New lawsuit accuses St. Ives Apricot facial scrub of causing irritation https://t.co/eWpN8k8lU3— The Cut (@TheCut) December 29, 2016
*Two women are suing St. Ives for $5M.
*They claim the crushed walnuts in the scrub cause more acne and feel like sandpaper.
*The women say that the product is misleading as the packaging says it is dermatologist tested, but it is NOT dermatologist recommended.
*Dermatologists have confirmed that the granules found in facial scrubs like this one are damaging and cause inflammation and ultimately, more wrinkles.
Beauty horror post! Ever had your skin destroyed by a product? Rashes, cystic scene, etc?

For Wednesday, December 28, 2016:
Benjamin Millepied, the former director of the Paris Opera Ballet and
Kevin Federline husband of Natalie Portman, has a documentary coming out that follows his time at the Paris Opera Ballet. In "Rest", which comes out on January 13, he calls out the ballet world for its vicious racism. He also says that the POB has lost its reputation and quality. The documentary comes shortly after revelations that he abused expenses and funds at the POB. Some quotes:
“I heard someone say a black girl in a ballet is a distraction. If there are 25 white girls, everyone will look at the black girl. Everyone must be alike in a company, meaning everyone must be white...I have to shatter this racist idea.”
“This company, from the 1800s to the 1950s, was reputed for its phrasing, for the way the dancers moved. This is sorely missing from the school today.”
“I’ve realized that it’s too hard to turn this [organization] into what I think is most relevant for ballet today.”
Have u experienced racism in your job?
Amanda Palmer: 'Donald Trump is going to make punk rock great again' https://t.co/HARepnfAmQ— The Guardian (@guardian) December 29, 2016
Amanda Palmer and her husband Neil Gaiman have been granted five-year working visas for Australia.
Amanda has studied Weimar Germany extensively and thinks that Trump's presidency will produce great art.
She says Trump's presidency will encourage artists to go into basements and speakeasies to create amazing satirically political art.
She continues, saying that frightening political climates always allow for good and authentic art to flourish.
Do you think that Trump's presidency will encourage artists to make great art?
Burke Ramsey Files $750 Million Defamation Lawsuit Over CBS's JonBenet Ramsey Docuseries.

I came home
A little late
Someone had a bag packed for me
And a carriage awaited
To escort me to my very own "charming"
Back to where our stars first collided
And now it was full circle
At the same table we first met by chance
This time he made it not by chance
But by choice
Down on one knee
He said 4 words
On the Academy's lack of diversity, Lee Daniels had this to say:
“Go out and do the work. Oscars so white! So what? Do your work. Let your legacy speak and stop complaining, man. Are we really in this for the awards? If I had thought that way — that the world was against me — I wouldn’t be here now. These whiny people that think we’re owed something are incomprehensible and reprehensible to me. I don’t expect acknowledgment or acceptance from white America. I’m going to be me.”
He also says he wants white people to feel cool and that him giving white characters swag or whatever will heal the country.

Denzel Washington Says Its Easier to 'Blame Somebody Else' When It Comes to Colorism In Hollywood https://t.co/B0DGgcVAU4— Atlanta Black Star (@ATLBlackStar) December 29, 2016
When he was asked in an interview with BET if colorism held darker-skinned actors back from achieving success in Hollywood, Washington pointed to “Fences” co-star Viola Davis to suggest light-skinned actors are not favoured over dark-skinned actors “One of the best roles for a woman of any color in the last, in a good good while or at least any movie that I’ve been in, a dark-skinned woman has in this film,”
Washington went on to suggest that not being casted is due to skill level and determination not skin tone.
"The easiest thing to do is to blame someone else, the system. Yeah, there’s a possibility, maybe, that you’re not good enough, but it’s easy to say it’s someone else’s fault. But there’s a possibility that you’re not ready and you can still blame it on someone else instead of getting ready.”
His comments came as a surprised because in 2012 he spoke about telling his daughter that she would face disadvantages as an actress because she is dark-skinned.
Viola Davis has herself spoken about the colourism faced specifically by dark skinned women in hollywood; in a 2015 interview with The Wrap she said for women of colour in acting “the paper-bag test is still very much alive and kicking.”
