Dakota Speaks Out About her Banned Lolita Ad

When Dakota Fanning was 17, all of two years ago, she starred in the first campaign for Marc Jacobs’s Oh Lola! fragrance. It was her second time working with Jacobs after shooting a Marc by Marc campaign at age 13. In one of the Jeurgen Teller-lensed photos, she’s sitting and holding the bottle kinda by her crotch. The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) apparently received complaints and went so far as to ban the ad in the UK (something they often do), arguing that the position of the bottle was “sexually provocative,” that the model “looked under the age of 16″ and that “the ad could be seen to sexualise a child.” PHOTOS: See how we'd dress Dakota and other teen celebs for the prom! In a new cover story in Glamour, who declares that Fanning “isn’t a child actress anymore," she addresses the controversy around the ad for the first time. On whether she was surprised: "Yeah, I was! If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can. But it’s also like, ‘Why are you making it about that, you creep?’ I love Marc and trust him, and we just laughed about it." cr; usm

The 3 Countries Where Adele Isn't No.1
To tell you they're sorry for breaking your heart, Adele. WHAT!? Adele didn't achieve world domination. She may be the biggest star in ALMOST every country in the world however three countries seem to disagree. They're too preoccupied with their own music tastes and Adele just isn't one of them. In 29 international markets, Adele managed to rank No.1 in 26 of them which is basically unheard of. She's the No.1 artist in 110 countries on iTunes worldwide except for three. '3' really isn't a magic number for this pop star. Despite her record breaking album '25' : 3 million copies of the album sold in the first week of American sales alone, being the biggest-selling album released since 2011, the most sold album yearly since 2004, and broke records in how quickly her European and North American tours sold out, Adele pretty much wins...99% of the time. Thanks to Fusion.com, data was collected to show that these countries have different chart toppers and their fans wouldn't want it any other way. These countries have another preference... South Korea Why they don't prefer Adele? KPOP! Its the Korean Pop sensation that seems to dominate the music tastes of the country. The singers are hot. The music makes you want to start dancing. The music videos are strangely mesmerizing. And you've never had a party without wanting to scream at the top of your lungs to the clever lyrics that most Americans don't understand (aka Gangnam Style anyone?). Also, one must take into consideration that Koreans chart differently than most other Western countries. They have : domestic album sales, international sales, and a synthesized chart. Fusion.com found that Adele may be winning over their international chart however her streaming and album sales in South Korea are no comparison to the outstanding domestic sales of KPOP within the country. Here are Korean's top albums: - "The Most Beautiful Life," Pt 2 by the Bangtan Boys - "MATRIX" by B.A.P. - "Dear Santa - X Mas Special" by Girls Generation TTS Japan Why they don't prefer Adele? Japanese only track physical sold copies and as of now, Adele has only sold enough to make her the 7th highest album as of Dec. 7, 2015. Japanese also love KPOP but they're not as influential. It's also important to take note that digital downloads in the Japan music market outsell albums by 400% according to Fusion's research. Here are the following albums that have outsold Adele : - "For You" by Infinite - "Chandelier" by Black Number - "Sight of Blue" by Motohiro Hata Greece Why they don't prefer Adele? Blame it on the way they chart. They tracked how many '25' albums were shipped into the country instead of how many albums were sold total. Talk about bizarre. Even with Greece's adoration for American and British music, Adele only hit the No. 2 spot on Greek charts. They may track domestic and foreign music sales however their marks are harshly skewed. Sorry, Adele. The data didn't help you. Here are the albums that topped Adele: - "Ap' To Vorra Mehri to Noto" by Vasilis Karras - "M' Agapouses Ki Anthize" by Eleanora Zouganeli - "Nikos Vertis" by Nikos Vertis So really, other than MAYBE South Korea, Adele has won over everyone except for KPOP fans. There's always next time, Adele.
Why Hilary Duff's Clothes Shouldn't Define Her Motherhood
Stop slut shaming. Why is it that every time a mom posts a picture of herself where she feels good, the internet has to tear her down because it's too sexy, too provocative, or too inappropriate? Check out the picture that has garnered 118k likes and over 1,000 comments! Hilary Duff, don't let the haters get to you. The 28-year-old mom is under major heat after posting this photo on Tuesday of the outfit she wore to pick up her son Luca from school. Though Duff was feeling 'semi cute' in her very short shorts, tan top, and long trench, many fans had other opinions on her outfit. While Duff did invite her fans to tag themselves in their own #ootd, she got a reaction that were quite the opposite of what she had probably hoped for. "Hey moms! I came up with a semi cute outfit for school drop off! I usually roll in sweat pants or lulu lemons and look like a disaster but this morning I managed to throw something cute together and I thought I would share," Duff captioned the photo. "Cut offs or jeans. A light weight trench over a sweater or tee, cross body bag sneaks or booties and a pair of Sunnies! Now you try! Tag me in your photo (annnnd you don't have to wear such a serious face haha)." Everything from Instagram user señoritaatomasita writing, "I am sorry, the only issue that I have with her outfit is how tiny her shorts are. It given men mix signals about it's okay for them to cat call a female because what she wears. Plus the outfit does not posh" to other user simplelittleway writing, "I have always like her but no way is this appropriate. They look like panties. To whoever said the only ones bothered by this are insecure moms that never lost their baby fat. I love my body and I am thin. I however would never pick my son up in that. It's inappropriate for kids to see woman in their panties. Also I would not want to embarrass my son." Some moms are furious. However, not everyone has the same opinion. Instagram user iledahorsetowater wrote, "Rock it! What is up with all the negativity?? I think you are doing a fabulous job!" Even user shenry1977 loves Duff's style, "Your outfit rocks! Haters = motivators!!!" Many other moms commented that Duff is looking better than ever and there is no reason to retire the shorty shorts to fit a very skewed social standard. Women who support other women, we need more of this. But here's the thing, Duff should be able to wear this because she feels comfortable and it makes her happy. For a society that constantly promotes feminism and girls uniting with other girls to combat slut shaming and gender stereotyping, the negativity comments are doing just the opposite. A mom can be a mom AND sexy, pretty, cute, gorgeous, stunning, funny, and appealing. Just because you have a child does not mean that a woman should sacrifice her identity. Everyone freaked out weeks ago about Kim Kardashian's almost full nude mirror pick and it looks like the same haters have made their way to Duff's post. Leave Duff alone, she looks amazing. One word : WERK.
Child Stars: Where Are They Now?
D'awwwwwww you can't look at that picture and not be in a better mood. So cute. Michelle and Teddy were just two of the adorable kid stars on TV while I was growing up. Being a child star can be tough (we've all seen what happened to Lindsey Lohan, Amanda Bynes, etc.). It's a lot of pressure to grow up in the spotlight, and if all that money and fame goes to your head, well, it can make for some difficult adult years. Most of the child stars here turned out okay, making my preteen heart soooooo proud. Tahj Mowry The lesser known Mowry sibling (shout out to Tia and Tamera) is the epitome of that child star that everyone forgot about but is SUPER HOT now. Excuse me while I add like ten pics of him for everyone to enjoy. This child star who you might know as Michelle's best friend on Full House or the adorable know-it-all on Smart Guy is still acting! He's in ABC Family's newest dramedy, Baby Daddy. Frankie Muniz I know he's best known for Malcolm in the Middle, but to me, Frankie Muniz's best work will always be Big Fat Liar. Seriously, Amanda Bynes, Paul Giamatti, Donald Faison, what an all-star cast. Since then he's been up to a lot of things. Remember his weird and brief stint as a race car driver?!? Also he was in Sharknado 3, so who really knows what he's doing with his life.. Dakota Fanning After I saw Uptown Girls I totally wanted to be Dakota Fanning. She was sassy and strong, and she gave Brittany Murphy the middle finger which was totally taboo for kids my age so I thought she was such a badass. She has sort of fallen out of the spotlight recently. She's done a couple smaller films, but is mostly focusing on school. She currently attends NYU. Haley Joel Osment Wonder if he still sees dead people? He's one of several child stars who ran into a bit of trouble later in life. Osment went to rehab back in 2006, but has since turned his life around, graduating from NYU and taking on a couple comedy roles. If you're one of the very few people who saw the Entourage movie, you may remember seeing him. He's also done some work with IFC, a network that does a lot with comedy greats like Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen If you're a twenty-something girl you totally grew up knowing whether you were a Mary Kate or an Ashley. I was totally a Mary Kate. These ladies peaked at a young age starring in some movies that were hugely (and embarrassingly) influential for me. Holiday in the Sun, Passport to Paris, Billboard Dad...SO GREAT. They have since quit acting (breaking my preteen heart) and focused on fashion, launching a couple of their own fashion lines.

Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
¿Dakota Fanning pidió reunirse con G-Dragon?
Han habido rumores sobre Dakota Fanning que dicen que ha solicitado reunirse con G-Dragon de Big Bang. Unos portales coreanos de medios de comunicación informaron que la actriz de 18 años de edad, quien llegó a Corea el 5 de enero con su hermana Elle Fanning para un contrato de patrocinio con la marca de moda J.estina, expresaron que ella quería reunirse con G-Dragon en su visita a Corea. Se dijo que incluso ella hizo la llamada personalmente. YG Entertainment confirmó entonces las noticias sobre los planes que tienen para reunirse, pero reveló que Dakota no llamó. "Dakota Fanning dijo que ella siempre ha sido una fan de G-Dragon, y es verdad que ella nos contactó a través de una agencia coreana. Y como G-Dragon, también es fan de Dakota Fanning, trató de ajustar su agenda para reunirse con ella, al final, han decidido reunirse en un momento posterior debido a los horarios conflictivos. Los informes están haciendo parecer como si Dakota Fanning llamó a G-Dragon, pero no es así, en realidad la agencia llamó" Sin embargo, una declaración que contradice fue puesta en libertad por los representantes de Dakota, que afirmaron: "Dakota Fanning nunca llamó a G-Dragon, y ellos nunca prometieron reunirse en Corea. No hay nada de cierto en los rumores". Ademas: "No es cierto que estaban en contacto para reunirse ", haciendo hincapié en que los informes eran completamente falsas. Esto ha dejado a muchos en la confusión por las declaraciones de las dos partes que son totalmente diferentes. Fuente: AllKpop --------------------- ¿QUÉ LES PASA A TODAS LAS MINAS!?
