Good evening readers,
After a long weekend, we all tend to get a little down. So I am here to boost your mood with everything that is making news in Hollywood today!
The Spice Girls may not be reuniting any time soon, but their music is still iconic when it comes to empowering women.
Everyone’s favourite Spice Girls song, “Wannabe” has gotten a makeover, and trust me it’s for an amazing cause.
The Global Goals campaign released a brand new music video for the song, aiming to bring awareness to the serious issue that is gender inequality.
And don’t worry, its got the stamp of approval.
Victoria Beckham, or Posh Spice, backed the video by posting it to her Facebook page.
Beckham captioned the video, “20 years on- Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. I’m so proud of The Global Goals #WhatIReallyReallyWant.”
In the video, dancers sing their way through the hit song next to banners with moving messages promoting ending violence for girls, promoting proper education, and equal pay.
Viewers can be like Beckham and spread the awareness by using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant.
Go check out the video right here!
Speaking of feminism, that is not the word that comes to mind when one thinks of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
The presidential candidate’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, is coming to his rescue.. yet again, to tell the world “my father is a feminist.”
I like Ivanka, but I feel genuinely bad for her. Her public support for her father is blowing back up in her face, since everyone now knows how terrible of a person he really is.
As most of us know, Trump can’t even come close to a feminist because of what he has said in the past during his campaign and before that.
These examples include,
2011: After reporting on rumours of Trump’s bankruptcy, New York Times columnist Gail Collins was sent a copy of her own article by Trump. It included her picture which was circled with the sentence “the face of a dog!” written across it.
2013: Trump doesn’t question why so many sexual assaults go unreported or why so few perpetrators are brought to justice. No, he is worried about the fact that women and men just can’t share the same living quarters.
He tweeted, “26, 000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?”
2015: In an interview with the New York Times, he said super model Heidi Klum was no longer in her prime.
“Heidi Klum. Sadly, she’s no longer a 10.”
(BTW Klum responded by tweeting him a video of her wearing a simple white tee that read, “10” on it, and she looked smoking!)
2015: Trump insulted yet another women on her looks, this time it was previous-presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina.
According to Rolling Stone he said, “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
AND TRUST ME THAT IS NOT EVEN THE HALF OF IT…
Anyways back to Ivanka.
She did an interview with the Sunday Times a few days ago, claiming her father was, against all reasoning, a feminist.
“People talk about gender equality. He has lived it, he has employed women at the highest levels of the Trump Organization for decades, so I think it’s a great testament to how capable he thinks women are and has shown that his whole life. My father is a feminist. He’s a big reason I am the woman I am today…He always told me and showed me that I could do anything I set my mind to if I married vision and passion with work ethic. He’s also surrounded me with strong female role models who have done just that since I was a little girl.”
I am sorry Ivanka, but you are wrong.
Trump is not a feminist in any way shape or form.
Because he is not hiring women because he thinks they’ll be beneficial to the company.
No, Trump is hiring pretty, young women to
A. look at when he wants, and
B. show off that he can be around pretty people all day since he is so rich.
SORRY THAT DOESN’T COUNT AS EQUALITY.
Finally, let’s end on a happier note.
Kendall Jenner may have finally found love, but it might just be casual (story of every girl in the world, can I get an AMEN)
Jenner was spotted hanging out with basketball player, Jordan Clarkson for Fourth of July at her house in Malibu.
The pair were also together at the Beverly Hills Hotel and Bootsy Bellows’ “Red White and Bootsy” party.
A close source to the couple tells E! News the couple are “casually dating”, and “is not anything serious.”
This isn’t the first time Jenner and the L.A. Laker have been spotted together, they attended this year’s Coachella together as well.
I feel like Kendall is the chillest one of the Kardashians, therefore she won’t be as public with her relationships like Kylie, Kim or Rob.
