Controversy Be Damned! Jeffree Star’s Cremated Palette Sells Out Immediately & Twitter Goes MAD!

So much for THAT controversy!

As we reported days ago, some social media users made a stink about Jeffree Star‘s new ‘Cremated’ cosmetic line — especially in light of the morbid atmosphere surrounding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But judging by how quickly this thing sold out this morning, you’d think nobody was offended at all! Holy s**t!!!

The YouTube sensation and makeup aficionado took to his official Twitter account on Friday morning to unexpectedly share the incredible news! As you can see (below), even he was super shocked at just how quickly things sold out:

What the f**k, indeed!

And especially after so much social media controversy over the palette itself earlier in the week, too. Guess all that noise didn’t turn out to matter too much once it came time to buy, buy, buy did it?!

Some skeptical Twitter users pointed out the hypocrisy of it all, showing off their cynicism in reacting to the super-fast sell out:

No kidding!!!

Another user referenced Star’s longtime buddy Shane Dawson with a super-relatable GIF response to the sell out post-controversy, tweeting (below):

It’s tea, indeed!

And you KNOW Twitter didn’t stop there, honey!!! There were SO MANY more reactions and opinions where those came from!

One user was clearly frustrated that Star took any heat at all in the first place, tweeting (below):

“How on Earth are people offended about Jeffree Star’s Cremated palette. Are people choosing to be offended by death now? You do know people died BEFORE Coronavirus was a thing right? People have been being cremated since way back my dudes. That is REACHING”

OK then!

Still other tweeters congratulated the YouTube sensation for making them “completely forget” about the coronavirus for just a little while:

“Thank you @JeffreeStar for blowing our minds with your #CrematedPalette that made us completely forget about the corona virus for a second 👏🏼”

Yeah, sure, why not?! LOLz!!

And still others pointed out that critics of the Jeffree Star Cosmetics CEO are really all hypocrites because the ‘net is full of crazy coronavirus memes that we’ve all gotten a good laugh at here and there, anyways:

“People are really complaining about @JeffreeStar releasing the Cremated collection rn, as if the internet isn’t polluted by coronavirus memes…”

We get it!

Where do y’all stand on this one, Perezcious readers?! Sound OFF about your reaction to Star’s HUGELY popular palette and all the related drama down in the comments (below)!!!

Ellie Goulding Responds To Backlash After Revealing She Fasts For 40 HOURS At A Time!

Is Ellie Goulding‘s new diet trend a healthy way to help keep in shape? Or a dangerous advertisement for an eating disorder??

The Love Me Like You Do singer stirred up some controversy over the weekend when an interview she did with The Mirror went live on Saturday in which she sang the praises of periodic fasting.

Unlike the increasingly popular version of intermittent fasting, in which eating is restricted to specific hours of the day, Ellie has been going without food for a whole day a week — or even a little more. Kind of like a reverse cheat day. She explained to the publication:

“I do it very safely by having a purposefully nutritious food day the day before and after. On the fast day, I drink high-grade electrolytes and a LOT of water (plus tea and coffee).”

Sounds pretty tough — but is it even helpful? Ellie thinks so! The 33-year-old gushed:

“Fasting is safe and beneficial unless you are diabetic or have serious health issues. I built my way up to 40-hour fasts over time (started with 12). Fasting from time to is a great way to give your digestive system a break. It helps blood sugar control and helps fight inflammation — the mother of all health problems.”

40 HOURS! Yowza!

Naturally that shocking length of time — basically two straight days of no solid food — sparked some debate online. But we don’t think Ellie was ready for just how harsh some of the criticism got!

Some Twitics called her out for encouraging eating disorders, with one in particular @ing her in a savage callout:

“Call it ‘fasting’ or ‘reducing inflammation’ but this is an eating disorder. F**k @snapchat and f–k @elliegoulding for showing this just in general but what about for the kids already thinking they need to starve themselves?”

Ellie was so upset by the accusation she actually responded, tweeting:

“? I eat a seriously huge amount and exercise regularly. I’m super healthy, I drink sometimes, eat whatever I want, and then I fast for one day a week. It is not starving myself. As far as people in the spotlight go I consider myself a good role model x”

Another fan asked her directly:

“@elliegoulding do you think this is good advice to be giving out to the younger generation, giving them ideas?! In a world where everyone thrives to be perfect 🤷🏼‍♀️ i myself had anorexia when i was younger and to see this actually makes me feel sick! This is not normal!”

Ellie replied to this as well, clarifying:

“I didn’t give it as advice. Was asked about my health and fitness during an interview, and consider fasting for one day (plus the night- when I’m asleep) part of that. I do it safely and am incredibly fit and healthy. I’d say I’m a pretty decent role model x”

She isn’t kidding — she definitely is in great physical shape.

But is the fasting part of that?

Ellie says she got the green light for such long fasts from a doctor friend. We should also point out some preliminary studies on intermittent fasting (such as this one published in the New England Journal of Medicine) suggest there are at least short term health benefits and potentially more long term ones as well. Still you should definitely do what Ellie did and consult a physician about any big nutritional changes like fasting for a whole day a week.

What do YOU think about fasting one day a week? Could YOU do it??

Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly ARE ‘Hooking Up’ — And She’s ‘Excited’ Abou

Did anybody see THIS couple coming???

We knew things were strained between Megan Fox and her husband Brian Austin Green after it was revealed they were quarantining separately. But we didn’t expect there to be another man in the picture already — and definitely didn’t expect that man to be Machine Gun Kelly!

However, after the unlikely couple was spotted grabbing takeout in Calabasas, pieces of the puzzle started falling into place. Apparently, the duo met while filming their new movie Midnight in the Switchgrass, also starring Bruce Willis. And according to a source, sparks started flying on set right away!

The insider told E! News

“Megan has been working on a movie with Machine Gun Kelly and gotten close to him. They are hooking up and have been for a little while. She is separated from Brian Austin Green and they are taking time apart as a couple. She has something going on with Machine Gun Kelly that she is excited about.”

Soooo… if they’ve been hooking up for “a while,” does that mean before she separated from her husband? No evidence of that yet, but we also don’t yet know another reason for her separation. Hmm…

Of course, because of coronavirus, production on the film has been temporarily shut down. But these two clearly haven’t let quarantine stand between them — in fact, E! says they’ve been seeing each other “regularly.” The source continued:

“The movie will be starting up again soon and they are happy to get back to work and continue being together.”

(Not sure how “soon” they’ll be back on set, considering LA Public Health expects quarantine to continue to at least July. But hey, we’ve gotta keep hope alive!)

Compounded on all this drama is the cryptic message Fox’s (soon-to-be ex?) husband posted to social media on her birthday:

“Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long. They start feeling smothered. It’s a great big world and they want to experience it.”

If it wasn’t clear enough that Green isn’t actually talking about the beauty of nature, fans were quick to point out that Megan actually has a tattoo about butterflies. (It reads, “We will all laugh at gilded butterflies.”) 

The married couple has been down the break up road before. But maybe this time will be the split that sticks? We’ll have to wait and see…

Regardless, it seems we can officially mark this down as another surprising quarantine romance. Hopefully everything turns out for the best for these two!

The Kardashian Family Is Taking Social Distancing Very Seriously Amid The Coronavirus Outbreak

It’s always nice to see a famous family doing the right thing and role modeling good behavior in a time like this!

The Kardashian clan is isolated, quarantined, and hidden away during this month’s ongoing coronavirus pandemic scare — and from the looks of it, they’ll do whatever is right, for as long as it takes, before coming together as one big happy family again!

Kim Kardashian West confirmed as much in a Wednesday evening Instagram post, in which she shared an old pic of herself and younger sis Khloé Kardashian alongside a very important caption public service announcement (below):

“I was organizing my photos in my phone and found this and miss my sisters but we are all social distancing and staying away from each other all separately self quarantined. It’s hard but we have to do this for our safety and for everyone else’s. PLEASE do not ignore the severity of the warnings to stay inside to stop the spread of this virus. We will all get through this! #TogetherApart”

As you can see from the pic, in which Kim and Khlo are getting prepped pre-shoot by a glam squad at some point in the past, it’s clear how connected and bonded these close-knit sisters are:

And yet it’s still so smart for them to take the government’s warnings seriously, and distance themselves from each other and other people during this time. Hopefully, by doing enough of that, we’ll all be able to limit exposure and cut down on the potential spread of the disease.

Good on you for leading the way here, Kim, and you’re right — we will all get through this!

Rob Does His Part!

In addition to the girls keeping their distance from each other, fellow reality star and only-brother Rob Kardashian has postponed his birthday party. The star, who turned 33 on Tuesday, was all set to celebrate with family and friends, but sources reveal that the COVID-19 outbreak has him concerned about gathering so many people together in one place. And rightfully so!

The insider spoke to People about the single dad’s decision to postpone things, saying:

“Rob’s birthday celebration is postponed. They are all taking the social-distancing very seriously. No one in the family is socializing right now and everyone is just hanging out at their separate houses.”

Good decision!

Kylie’s Been Ready For This…

Who said a little social distance had to be a difficult thing?! While we are nearing the throes of cabin fever over here, Kylie Jenner is living her best life at home. As the notorious homebody herself is quick to point out, pregnancy was the perfect training ground for an extended stay stuck at home!

The 22-year-old took to her IG Stories this week to discuss the self-quarantine, at one point sharing this set of sensible, smart precautions and encouragements, while also teasing the last time she self-isolated was during her pregnancy (below):

 

Well done, Kylie! And well done to the entire Kardashian fam!

Kendall Jenner waaaas spotted out on a joyride Wednesday with pal Fai Khadra and another friend, but she was keeping distance from others and keeping it to a gathering of under 10.

Seriously, this is what role modeling and conscientious, common sense behavior is all about. LOVES it!!! HBU, Perezcious readers??

Justin Timberlake Is Craving ‘Some Alone Time’ With Jessica Biel On A ‘Beach Vacation’

Justin Timberlake is still doing everything he can to make things up to Jessica Biel in the aftermath of his hand-holding scandal!

An insider revealed to Us Magazine:

“Justin wants to do a beach vacation with Jessica just the two of them to celebrate her birthday and have some alone time. It’s been hard for them to plan because of various work commitments.”

As you’ll recall, he threw his wife a pajama party earlier this month in honor of her 39th birthday. The source said of the March get-together:

“Justin was dancing and making everyone laugh and doting on Jessica. He really made the night all about making her happy.”

The 7th Heaven star took to her Instagram following the bash to thank her husband:

“Celebrating my birthday in style… and by that I mean, in pajamas. I made Justin PROMISE not to sing Happy Birthday to me, so he improvised. Sorry you can’t hear it, but I’m still laughing 😂. Thank you, you wonderful human, for really listening to me, and for throwing my kinda party. And thank YOU ALL for the birthday wishes. Feeling the love.”

The Summer Love crooner also dedicated a post in honor of his wife on Insta:

“Happy Birthday to the LOVE of my life… A new adventure every day and a treasure to me. I can’t wait to share many more of these with you. Thanks for putting up with me when I smell funky after a round of golf or, when I smell funky in general. You are the mostest of the mostest, my love! I adore you.

HUZ”

As you’ll likely recall, Timberlake made headlines back in November when he was photographed getting a little too close to his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright on a night out in New Orleans with their castmates. Both parties denied anything romantic went down, and the 39-year-old issued a public apology to his fans, wife, and 4-year-old son Silas:

“I displayed a strong lapse of judgment — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that.”

Given everything that’s going on right now… a staycation might be the safest move for them both! Then again, does a vacation even make up for what Jess has been through? Sound OFF (below) in the comments and let us know what U think!

Jordyn Woods Responds To Backlash For Wearing A Traditional Abaya In Abu Dhabi: ‘I Just Got Properly Edu

Jordyn Woods is getting heat for taking a selfie in an abaya, a traditional robe-like dress worn by women in some Muslim countries. But the Instagram influencer says she means no disrespect!

For those who missed it, Kylie Jenner‘s former BFF posted a photo (above) to her social media page with her mom and younger sister all wearing abayas during a trip to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. In the caption, she wrote:

“Triplets take on the Grand Mosque #inabudhabi 🖤”

However, commenters criticized the 22-year-old for mocking Islam with her new snap. One user wrote:

“Visiting a holy place isn’t a f**king fashion show. Stop preening and taking IG photos.”

And another shared:

“Not to start hate or anything but this post is just straight up disrespectful! The Koran says that for a woman to enter a mosque she must wear her hijab correctly (covering all hair and ears) and to not wear makeup (just mascara and gloss is okay) Islam is a religion that people practice so if you’re going into a mosque whether you are a Muslim or not you must respect it and follow its rules but instead you made it all about looks rather than the religion itself. I hope people can see where I am coming from because as a Muslim woman I find this very offensive and upsetting! I always supported the Woods girls but this made me lose a great deal of respect for you”

There was also this particularly shady comment, referencing her scandal with Tristan Thompson, AKA Khloé Kardashian‘s baby daddy:

“It’s not even on your head properly put it properly or don’t wear it at all don’t make a mockery of it shouldn’t you be sleeping with someone’s boyfriend also lol”

In response to one Instagrammer’s words on the post though, Jordyn replied:

“I’m sorry if I offended you but in order to enter the mosque you have to wear an abaya… In no world would I try to mock another person nor culture.”

Woods’ additional IG post following the backlash had a specific note about the cultural dress, where she wrote:

“For those of you that don’t know in order to enter the mosque you must wear an abaya. It was such an amazing experience getting to see the beauty of another culture.”

The messages about her needing to fully cover up her hair are accurate, which the young star at least took in grace:

“I just got properly educated. Thanks sis.”

The former Good American model also addressed the coronavirus pandemic while abroad, telling her followers on her Instagram Stories:

“It gives me an excuse to come back to Dubai to go skydiving like I wanted to do. By the looks of it, coming home would be the best idea sooner rather than later. This is wild.”

Stay safe out there, everyone!

Ben Carson Admits On Live TV That Donald Trump’s White House Has No Plan For Coronavirus Outbreak…

This is absolutely insane… and it’s also pretty much par for the course for Donald Trump‘s White House, honestly!

Ben Carson, who is a former presidential candidate himself and Trump’s current secretary for Housing and Urban Development, went on ABC News‘ This Week on Sunday morning to talk about the coronavirus scare, and specifically a virus-stricken cruise ship that’s coming to port in California later today.

Speaking live on national TV with host George Stephanopoulos, Carson seemed completely uninformed in answering simple questions about the virus — like, when Stephanopoulos asked about what the plan was for the cruise ship and its sick passengers.

With all the energy of a sloth, Carson stammered through a concerning, rambling, and incoherent explanation of how the plans have not been “fully formulated” yet — despite the cruise ship landing in mere hours — and that he doesn’t want “to preview” any plans before they become, umm, formulated.

At one point, Carson left the poor ABC host nearly speechless when he said (below):

“I don’t want to preview the plan right now. I think it needs to all come from a solitary source. We shouldn’t have 16 people saying what the plan is, particularly when it hasn’t been fully formulated.”

Holy s**t! Are we ever in trouble.

Watch the whole thing go down (above)…

Khloé Kardashian Opens Up About Being ‘Under A Lot Of Stress’ While Breastfeeding True Thompson

Khloé Kardashian is being open and candid about a very difficult experience for her as a new mother.

The 35-year-old reality TV star sat down with sister Kourtney Kardashian for a brand new video published Wednesday for her lifestyle brand Poosh. In the ten-minute clip, the pair opened up about their experiences as new moms, with Khloé getting particularly honest about the difficulties of nursing and breastfeeding beloved baby girl True Thompson.

The duo reminisced about the days of breastfeeding and close contact with their newborns, but it was interesting to hear how the Good American founder had more trouble with the whole thing than we ever knew at the time. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star set the context of the time — she was in Cleveland feeling isolated with cheating partner Tristan Thompson, who was there playing basketball — and revealed more about the adversity she faced in connecting with her now-22-month-old little girl.

The reality TV star said:

“Pain wasn’t my problem. I think parents go through pain for their kids, they don’t care… It was more I wasn’t producing milk. I was like, ‘Whatever is the best for her.’ But I understand, I was under a lot of stress, there was a lot going on in my life at the time that I think played a part in why I wasn’t producing as easily. But I don’t know. It was just a lot… being alone in Cleveland. Not having family there, you’re also just trying to figure it out like I was — I’m still just trying to figure it out for myself, is this right?”

Wow! We knew Cleveland had been a tough time for the reality TV star, but to hear all this about her bond with True… so crazy! And for a new mom, it must be so scary and confusing… especially after finding out your baby daddy had been photographed with other women!!

Ugh!

Fortunately, the Revenge Body star spoke to her doctor about what was going on, and they jointly decided to get True off breastmilk and onto formula — which helped quite a bit. But still, she had to face the guilt of not being able to breastfeed, as Khloé explained:

“I felt so bad … like I failed. I felt so bad about myself. Once I stopped, though, the amount of pressure that was lifted off my shoulders and I could enjoy my daughter … Seeing consume 6 oz. at this time, 4 oz. at this time, it made me feel so good to know.”

Interesting!

And it’s doubly interesting to hear in the video clip how 40-year-old Kourtney had a “seemingly easy” breastfeeding experience with her three children compared to Khloé. And Kylie Jenner didn’t breast feed Stormi Webster at all. Moms — and all babies — are different, it doesn’t mean one is better than the other!

You can watch Kourt and Khlo-money discuss the whole thing on camera in the clip (below):

Always very raw and real whenever Khloé decides to open up about anything. The beloved reality TV star wears her heart on her sleeve, that’s for sure!

What do U think about Khlo’s big breastfeeding admission here, Perezcious readers?! Brave to do considering all the likely mommy shamers out there always waiting for the next big thing to criticize… ugh!

We’re on your side, Khloé!
