"Wildest Dreams" is not racist despite the claims!
"Wildest Dreams" is not "glamorizing white colonialism". When NPR called out Taylor Swift's new music video "Wildest Dreams" as being racist and glamorizing white colonialism, Swift's director fired back. Joseph Khan, the director of the film, had no issue with addressing the criticism. Swift was undoubtedly thrilled to introduce her new music which could be the most elaborate and shockingly gorgeous music videos to date. It takes place in 1950's Africa where a love affair takes place between Swift and hunky Scott Eastwood. The music video premiered at the 32nd annual MTV Video Music Awards pre-show on Sunday, Aug. 30. Swift even got to introduce the music video herself! However minutes after the video had ended on live television, fans from around the world took to social media (predominantly Twitter) to show their support or dismay of the video. On one side, fans were in awe of how gorgeous the video was proving her cinematic taste was flawless. The other side immediately criticized her for the lack of any African-American actors in the video that took place in Africa. Some believe it promoted colonialism which is a very dark aspect of African culture. However, the director still has claimed this was not the intent or reality. The Full Statement from Khan to NPR: “Wildest Dreams” is a song about a relationship that was doomed, and the music video concept was that they were having a love affair on location away from their normal lives. This is not a video about colonialism but a love story on the set of a period film crew in Africa,1950. There are black Africans in the video in a number of shots, but I rarely cut to crew faces outside of the director as the vast majority of screentime is Taylor and Scott. The video is based on classic Hollywood romances like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, as well as classic movies like The African Queen, Out of Africa and The English Patient, to name a few. The reality is not only were there people of color in the video, but the key creatives who worked on this video are people of color. I am Asian American, the producer Jil Hardin is an African American woman, and the editor Chancler Haynes is an African American man. We cast and edited this video. We collectively decided it would have been historicially inaccurate to load the crew with more black actors as the video would have been accused of rewriting history. This video is set in the past by a crew set in the present and we are all proud of our work. There is no political agenda in the video. Our only goal was to tell a tragic love story in classic Hollywood iconography. Furthermore, this video has been singled out, yet there have been many music videos depicting Africa. These videos have traditionally not been lessons in African history. Let’s not forget, Taylor has chosen to donate all of her proceeds from this video to the African Parks Foundation to preserve the endangered animals of the continent and support the economies of local African people. *Swift has yet to make a personal comment. You be the judge. This isn't the first mega superstar that Khan has worked with. His amazing list of stars is as followed : Britney Spears, Eminem, Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Gaga, Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey, and Maroon 5. Swift adds to his impressive resume and it will be no surprise who he makes a video for next (definitely another A-lister). So what do you think? Do you think the video had racist undertones?

5 Easy Tips to Prevent Mask Acne
You are doing your best to protect yourself and your loved ones from Covid-19 by wearing a mask everyday. But how do you protect your skin from the nasty acne breakouts that are caused by constant use of face masks? Here are some easy ways to keep your skin clear and blemish-free inspite of frequent mask use... 1. Wash fabric masks after every use Fabric masks absorb sweat, bacteria and skin care products from your skin. Always wash your fabric masks after each use. Use a non-scented, hypoallergenic detergent and let your mask dry completely before each use. 2. Wash your face regularly Continue washing your face three times a day as usual. Once in the morning, once at night and once after sweating or removing your mask. Use a gentle soap free cleanser that can remove sweat, oil and germs. Try an acne treatment salicylic acid cleanser if you already have acne. 3. Take a break from makeup Several makeup products contain silicones and other ingredients which can aggravate acne. Besides, warm air from your breath can cause makeup to melt and clog your pores. 4. Remove your mask every 4 hours In case you have long hours of mask use, then make sure you remove your mask for 15 minutes every 4 hours. Wash your hands and avoid touching your face. This would also be an ideal time to wash your face if necessary. 5. Apply an antibiotic acne cream It is common for bacteria to build up under your mask. This can lead to acne and folliculitis. You can apply an acne treatment gel containing dapsone on your skin once or twice every day. If acne persists even after these measures, then it is likely to be stress or hormone related acne. Consider talking to your dermatologist to revise your skin care routine and dietary habits.
Overcoming Prominent Travel Mistakes with House Swapping
Whether it's your first vacation with family overseas or you travel many times in a year, many of us make mistakes that cause a big headache or even ruin your entire holiday. But, the good news is, you can stay clear of many travel blunders when you opt for house swapping instead of booking a hotel room. So, without any further delays, let's find out:- Overpacking Most of us tend to overpack; we do this believing some of the daily life necessities will not be available in a hotel room. However, when you travel via a home exchange, you don't have to worry about the little stuff the daily-use kitchen appliances to bathroom essentials, all bases are covered. In a nutshell, house swapping lets you pack less, and enjoy your vacation more without the burden of extra luggage. Keeping Your Valuables Safe When you stay in a hotel room, you often worry about your valuables, everything from your diamond ring to the passport of each member of the family. While theft doesn’t frequently occur in a hotel, it is something most travelers constantly think about. But, if you travel using house swapping, it's like staying in a home away from home. You'll have complete peace of mind that all your valuables are safe and secure. And you won’t have to carry them when you are sightseeing or hiking. Meeting the Locals If you really want a memorable vacation, then interacting with locals to explore new cultures and traditions is the way to go. Starting a friendship with a local may be impossible while staying in a hotel room, but when traveling via house swapping you have an entire neighborhood to talk with and get to know. You become part of the local community, making new friends. No Stress When you stay in a house exchange, you eliminate stress. You don't have to worry about every minute detail, such as the kids making too much noise late at night or having to return to your hotel before they lock the front door. Bad Eating Habits Even the fitness freaks face difficulties maintaining their diet while on vacation, and often return home bloated and feeling terrible from overeating. However, when you do a home exchange, you'll have the complete kitchen facilities at your fingertips to prepare healthy meals for your family, including preparing their favorite dishes. Let's Wind Up Wrapping up, housing swap isn't a complex or tedious process. All you need to do is find a reliable house exchange site where you can enroll, often for a free membership. Once you’ve joined, explore options around the world for house exchanges based on your preferences and location. The holiday exchange platform will only charge you a nominal fee after the exchange is mutually agreed to.
