Jennifer Lopez Knocks Red Carpet Gown Out Of The Park At Billboard Latin Music Awards
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 07:30:07 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com





Jennifer Lopez hit a few home runs of her own at the Billboard Latin Music Awards.


Given her romance with Yankees great Alex Rodriguez, we thought a few baseball metaphors might be in order.


It's fair to say she swung for the fashion fences on the red carpet Thursday at the awards in Miami, wearing a net-like gown that barely covered all the bases.


And it was a hit, People said.


Take a look:








The ensemble got an assist from Jimmy Choo heels. Her stylists Rob and Mariel told Billboard the fashion choice was "totally unexpected and classic Jen."


Lopez, 47, didn't strike out in the Julien Macdonald number that she wore during the ceremony either.



Lopez had a busy night, performing "Mirate" from her upcoming Spanish-language album while accepting the Telemundo Star Award and Social Artist of the Year award.

Listen To Katy Perry's New Single For A Smorgasbord Of Awkward Food Euphemisms
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 06:30:37 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com

Katy Perry's next studio album still doesn't have a release date, even after TMZ spotted her appearing to tease its debut earlier this month. But we seem to be creeping closer. On Friday, the singer debuted another single, titled "Bon Appetit."


A few months after her last release, the politically aware "Chained to the Rhythm," this new collaboration with Migos is actually just one long string of conspicuous innuendos veering, perhaps inevitably, into "Muffin Top" territory. After one seemingly honest step in an admittedly cynical direction, Perry is retreating to the happily hollow side of the charts she usually dominates. (Give it a listen below.)





"You could use some sugar / 'Cause your levels ain't right," Perry croons, before reassuring us that it's fine to "eat with your hands" because she's "on the menu" a wink.


"Fresh out the oven," the singer continues, "Melt-in-your-mouth kind of lovin'."


At least it comes with a meme. The cover art, depicting Perry's disembodied head on a platter of assorted fruits, has been co-opted by fans on the internet, who've replaced her head with others, human and not.
















For a likely "Bon Appetit" performance, tune into "Saturday Night Live," where the singer will appear May 20.

Here's The Real Reason You've Got That One Random Chin Hair
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 06:01:45 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com

Chin hairs are like stars. You don't always see them, but every so often they emerge to surprise you in all their bold glory.


Facial hair, of course, is no big deal, but we have always wondered what the deal is with that one thick, long hair that seems to appear out of nowhere, just begging to be plucked.







We took a break from staring at our faces in magnified mirrors to call on the experts. First and foremost, we wanted to know what makes those individual chin hairs different from our thinner, finer facial hair.


Dr. Heidi Waldorf, director of laser and cosmetic dermatology at The Mount Sinai Hospital, broke it down for HuffPost.


"These are terminal hairs versus the vellus hairs on the rest of the face," she said. "Hair differs in its susceptibility to testosterone. Beard and mustache hair are more susceptible. Since [the chin is] considered a masculine area, when hair appears in that area in women, it is referred to as hirsutism."


Hirstuism is a medical condition that is often caused by polycystic ovary syndrome and certain medications that cause excessive growth. But if you have just one or two terminal hairs that appear in the same place each time they grow, you can usually chalk it up to our unique, complicated bodies.


"Hair follicles have a mind of their own," Angela Lamb, director of the Westside Mount Sinai Dermatology Faculty Practice, director of dermatology at the Institute of Family Health and an assistant dermatology professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, told HuffPost. "Sometimes one or more hairs will grow in thicker or fuller than others. This is the same reason why you may notice different hairs on your scalp that are curlier in some parts more than others."


It's not totally random, though. Like most other things in life, you have genetics to thank for the amount of hair that grows in on your face.


"Many cases are hereditary," Lamb said. "If the women in your family grow facial hair, you may as well. It has to do with how your hair follicles respond to androgens [male sex hormones, like testosterone] that are present in all women's bodies."


And while we would bet money that those individual chin hairs grow in at an exponentially faster rate than the other hair on our bodies, Lamb maintains they come in at the same speed. She also assured us that there is no scientific evidence to back up any claims that plucking these hairs makes them grow in thicker.


Waldorf did say, however, that the reason it may appear longer is thanks to the different ways hair grows on the body.


"Hair growth differs in different areas of the body, as does the growth cycle," she said. "Which is why scalp hair generally grows longer than eyelash hair."


Both Waldorf and Lamb state that there is no danger in plucking these hairs, aside for the potential risk for infection that comes with plucking any hair. And Waldorf explained that while you don't ever develop new follicles, more vellus hairs can be stimulated by hormones to become terminal hairs as you get older. "As women age, estrogen levels go down and natural testosterone goes unopposed."


As far as methods of removal go, both doctors referred to the same three options:


"Laser hair removal, electrolysis, and a topical prescription call Vaniqa that causes hairs to grow in thinner and slower," Lamb said. "These are not true 'preventions' but rather elimination techniques."


Much to our dismay, Lamb offered no scientific explanation for why those hairs are so darn satisfying to pluck. But what she did say is that plucking is "an easy compulsive behavior that can be deeply satisfying."


Sounds about right.

Now You Can Learn 'Game Of Thrones' Fictional Language... For Real
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 05:48:50 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com

Even the most dedicated "Game of Thrones" fan probably isn't fluent in Dorthraki or High Valyrian, the two fictional languages spoken in George R. R. Martin's epic series. But that's about to change.


The University of California at Berkeley is offering a summer class in the Dorthraki's native tongue. And it's led by Berkeley alum, linguist David J. Peterson, who created both languages for the critically acclaimed HBO show.


Titled "The Linguistics of Game of Thrones and the Art of Language Invention," Peterson's class will meet for four days a week during the May 22 - June 30 summer term, according to Berkeley News.


The show's seventh season is scheduled to return on July 16. And actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the show, confirmed this week that many of the leaks about the show's upcoming season are real.


"Every year, there are huge spoilers online where people find out real stuff and they will post it, and you go, 'Oh my God, they just spoiled the whole season online!' But then, because there's 10,000 other spoilers out there, they're not real. It just gets lost in the shuffle," he told HuffPost. "So, it's all out there by the way ... if you can find it."

Press Secretaries Get Paid To Clean Up Flubs. But Sometimes Even They Screw Up.
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 05:46:45 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com





Before the words were even completely out of the mouth of his boss, Stu Loeser knew he had screwed up.


It was 2010, and as New York City recovered from a massive snowstorm, Mayor Michael Bloomberg had been giving regular televised updates to New Yorkers about storm cleanup efforts. Many people were canceling their Broadway theater tickets due to the snow, and Loeser, Bloomberg's press secretary, advised the mayor to say on live television that New Yorkers should buy tickets amid the disaster.


The plug was meant to be a simple boost for Broadway. But the problem was that the city was still struggling to get the streets plowed in many neighborhoods, and the comment fed the perception that Bloomberg was out of touch with regular New Yorkers.


The comment was carried live on nine local television stations and several cable networks. As Bloomberg spoke, Loeser noticed many of the reporters in the room writing down the timestamp.


"At the time, we had ambulances stuck and streets that weren't getting cleared as quickly as usual, so I wasn't really focused on the Broadway line even though I saw reporters almost physically responding to it," recalled Loeser. "When you have potential loss of life, focusing on the damage you may have inadvertently done to yourself seems secondary."


But the outrage about the comment was swift. Peter Vallone, a city councilman from Queens, fumed about the comment in the New York tabloids. Bloomberg eventually apologized for the city's snow response.



A press secretary's main job is message discipline. They are paid to spin political agendas and minimize distractions, and to act as a shield, ensuring their boss never looks bad in the news. But every so often, press secretaries screw up. They botch the messaging or say something that doesn't align with the perception they're trying to create a and then it's the press secretary who's in the spotlight. When that happens, there aren't a lot of options for damage control other than to offer a full mea culpa.


White House press secretary Sean Spicer found himself on in this situation earlier this month when he told a room full of reporters that Hitler wasn't as bad as Syrian President Bashar Assad because he didn't use chemical weapons on his own people, and then referred to concentration camps as "Holocaust centers." It became immediately obvious he had majorly messed up a an MSNBC chyron posted below Spicer's televised speech fact-checked him in real time, noting Hitler gassed millions and videos of reporters looking baffled quickly went viral.


He appeared on CNN several hours later to apologize. "I made a mistake; there's no other way to say it," he told Wolf Blitzer. "I got into a topic that I shouldn't have, and I screwed up."


Spicer talked about the scrutiny he faces as the chief spokesman for the president of the United States in a panel discussion at the Newseum the following day.


"No matter what you do, what you wear, it gets amplified to a degree that you couldn't imagine," he told moderator Greta Van Susteren.



Sometimes, however, the only way for a press secretary control the damage is to leave. That's what happened to Kurt Bardella, the former spokesman for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). In 2011, Politico broke the news Bardella had shared email exchanges he had with other reporters with The New York Times' Mark Leibovich for a book Leibovich was writing on Washington culture. Bardella was fired over the incident shortly after.


"I can't believe how stupid I was," Bardella said in a recent interview with HuffPost. "As it's going on and you're breaking news on every outlet, and every story at that point in time is being written about your downfall and how you're ambition and ego got the best of you, while people go on background and talk shit about you, it's one of the most unpleasant professional situations you ever find yourself in."


Bardella said his conversation with Issa about his future employment following the incident was "pretty brief."


"At the end of the day, you still have a responsibility to serve your boss to the best of your ability. And it doesn't take a lot of time to realize that the best thing you can do for your boss is to be removed from that situation," Bardella said. "It was a pretty immediate conclusion given the situation. This wasn't a long, drawn out, strategic thoughtful process. It was 'well it's pretty obvious you're gonna have to fire me.'" (Bardella ended up being hired to work for the House committee Issa chaired later that year.)


Bardella said the episode showed him who his real friends were. The night he was fired, 14 friends showed up at his house with beer, pizza and Trivial Pursuit.


"I think most people are willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and an opportunity to redeem yourself," Bardella reflected. "If anything, I think what can compound a mistake is doubling down on it and not facing it directly."


Mike McCurry, who served as Bill Clinton's press secretary from 1995 to 1998, had his own run-in with infamy. In an October 1995 White House press briefing, McCurry accused Republicans of wanting to kill seniors because they wanted to cut Medicare.


"Eventually they'd like to see the program just die and go away. You know, that's probably what they'd like to see happen to seniors too. If you think about it. Oh, that's too far, that goes beyond the point," he said at the time.


McCurry later recalled that House Speaker Newt Gingrich was furious over the comment a which seems almost benign by today's standards of political discourse a and threatened to stop negotiating with the White House on the federal budget unless McCurry was fired. There were backchannel negotiations between Gingrich's chief of staff and the White House, and the dust up ended with McCurry apologizing from the White House briefing room and burying the hatchet with Gingrich.


"I sent the speaker a note saying that I quickly realized I had made a mistake and I apologize for that. And hope he understood that I did not intend to impugn his character," McCurry said at the time.


When McCurry left the White House a few years later, Gingrich sent him a crystal decanter and four glasses so he "could enjoy some Jack Daniels in retirement," McCurry recalls.



"Moral of the story: all press secretaries say stupid things," McCurry, who is now a professor at Wesley Theological Seminary, wrote in an email. "It works out better when you 'fess up quickly."


A fast apology is essential, said George Arzt, who served as former New York City Mayor Ed Koch's press secretary. As he was leaving City Hall one day in the late 1980s, Arzt heard from the police that a bear at the zoo had mauled two zookeepers and possibly killed one. He told reporters to check with the police about the incident, but one paper ran the story on its front page without verifying it. In fact, only one zookeeper had been injured, and only slightly. The paper ran a correction that blamed Arzt for the error.


"I still apologized for any miscommunication and decided never to give out half-assed information even if I was going off the record to help out reporters," Arzt said. "You just have to show that it does not bother you a even when you are in pain a and life goes on."


In a crisis, Arzt, said, a press secretary can never show frustration and must remain unflappable.


"Reporters have great pressures dealing with deadlines, competition and dumb editors asking dumb questions. They need someone to believe in," he said. "If the press secretary has no credibility, reporters will seek someone out who can give them credible information and that usually is not good for the administration."


The necessity of a quick and clear apology seems to be anathema to President Donald Trump, who has shown an extreme aversion to admitting he was wrong. Trump has made all kinds of untrue public claims and unfounded allegations a that there was widespread voter fraud in last year's election and that he was wiretapped in Trump tower among them a and refused to back down when confronted with evidence to the contrary.


In a 2015 interview, Trump suggested that he never apologizes because he's never wrong: "I fully think apologizing's a great thing, but you have to be wrong."

This Instagram Account Is Documenting Every Anti-Donald Trump Sticker In NYC
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 05:23:19 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com

These small stickers are being used to make a big political point.


Dozens of different anti-Donald Trump labels have appeared across New York City since his presidential election win in November 2016. And the man behind the Resist Trump account on Instagram is on a mission to document each and every one of them.


"They're basically all over the place, anywhere you would normally see street art," said the photographer, Tim Olmstead, via email this week. "Phone booths are surprisingly fertile ground, I've noticed."

A post shared by Resist Trump (@resistrump) on




Olmstead, 32, said he was inspired to chronicle the often inconspicuous works of art after seeing the message "Fuck Trump" scrawled on New York City's Manhattan Bridge.


"Since then I have just kept an eye out for it," he said, revealing that he photographs the stickers as he walks around Manhattan and Brooklyn. He also occasionally features other forms of protest art on his account.


His favorite label is currently the above one with the word "NO" underneath an emblem depicting Trump's coiffed hair. He prefers the pieces that make you think.

"I mean, the ones where people just write 'Fuck Trump' or 'Trump sucks' don't exactly grab my attention the way, for instance, (Steve) Bannon puppeteering Trump does," Olmstead said of the above image of the White House Chief Strategist in control of the president.


The underlying theme behind all the stickers he has photographed is "probably the same thing that inspired me to start taking the pictures," he said. "It's a way of dealing with and trying to make at least a little light out of a dark situation."

Chris Pratt Is Incredibly Groot At Prank Calls
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2017 04:42:52 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com



Chris Pratt was asked to make a prank phone call, and he delivered in a big way.


The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star took part in a recurring segment called AlphabetiCall on BBC Radio 1's "The Matt Edmondson Show."


It involves making a prank call, where you start the first sentence with a word beginning with the letter "A" and each sentence after with the next letters of the alphabet.


Pratt called a pet store to ask about caring for his stick insect... but as the call went on, his "pet" sounded less like a bug and more like"Guardians of the Galaxy" favorite Groot.


Check it out above.

Stephen Colbert Picks Apart GOP Plans For aZombie Trumpcare'

The GOP wants to bring its repeal of the Affordable Care Act back from the dead, but "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert is not having any of it.


On Thursday, he took aim at President Donald Trump and Republicans for trying to rekindle their bill, which has been dubbed "Zombie Trumpcare."


"Unlike Obamacare, under the new plan, individual states would be allowed to not cover pre-existing conditions," said Colbert. "That's why New Hampshire is changing their license plate from 'Live Free or Die' to 'Live Here and Die.'"


Colbert also said he couldn't wait for Trump's first 100 days to be over.


"It's just so exhausting watching this man try to accomplish something."

Seth Meyers Roasts Donald Trump Over 'Soft Wood' Trade War With Canada

From huffingtonpost.com





"Late Night" host Seth Meyers had a field day mocking President Donald Trump on Thursday for starting a trade dispute with Canada over a specific type of wood.


Earlier this week, the Trump administration announced that it would impose a tariff of about 20 percent on softwood lumber imported from Canada, a decision that has increased trade tensions between the two nations.


"I'm not going to take that as an opportunity to make a bunch of penis jokes," Meyers said. "I'm just saying that Donald Trump doesn't want to be slapped with soft Canadian wood, so he's clamping down on it."


Watch Meyers go off on Trump in the clip in the video above.
