• Hairstylist to the stars Ted Gibson has added another name to his celebrity roster. The man who lays Gabrielle Union and Angelina Jolie‘s tresses will now hook up Gabby Douglas‘s coif, as her brand new hairstylist. Gibson is naturally excited to work with Douglas, but he couldn’t help but feel a little outrage at comments made about the two-time Olympic gold medalist’s hair: “I couldn’t believe it and still can’t. You have this young girl doing amazing things, and the conversation becomes about her hair? It was ridiculous and shameful.” We all agree with Gibson, but I wonder if this big announcement just adds fuel to this already stupid fire? (Daily Beast)
• Ron Stanley, editor of Dazed & Confused magazine speaks out about the controversial Azealia Banks condom cover. “Azealia liked it, and we thought it would be fun and suited her because she’s a strong, provocative character,” he said. “I knew this cover would be talked about, but didn’t expect a confident, young woman posing with an inflated condom to cause this much fuss. It’s funny that in a world where extreme images are so accessible, someone posing with something that is used for safe sex is what we get worked up about.” Say word. (Necole Bitchie)
