Did Kanye Call Amber A Prostitute?


It’s been over ten years since Amber Rose and Kanye West split up. However, throughout the time that has passed, Rose states that ‘Ye has ‘bullied’ her.

Amber and Kanye started dating in 2008, a year in which they quickly became Hip-Hop’s ‘favourite’ couple.

Routinely displaying their affection for one another, the pair took to numerous red carpets and enjoyed the sweet life while jet-setting around the globe.

However, their romance quelled and officially dissolved in 2010.


Since the end of their union, Kanye – who is currently running for president of the United States – has taken many jabs at Rose, one claim being that he needed to take “thirty showers’ after breaking up with her.

Feeling “bullied”  her former flame, Amber addressed his ‘slut-shaming’ antics and more in a recent interview with @NoJumper.


She says:

“Let me ask you a question: you’re famous for 10 years. You date a whole bunch of girls. Everyone has nice things to say about you but one person that obviously has a problem with everybody has something negative to say about you. You can do the math at that point. It’s just, I don’t know.

You spend years with someone, you take them around the world, you buy them all the jewelry. You shout out to the world how much you love them and how much fun you have with this person and then the person decides that this isn’t what they want their life to be. I opted out. I don’t want my life to be like that. I’m not that type of person.”

Addressing the “thirty showers” comment, she added:

‘You took me around the world. Since when do you need 30 showers? I can see if it was a one-night thing and you want to slut-shame me. Okay. He just called me a prostitute at his rally, he called me a prostitute. Ten years later. Just leave me alone. I don’t talk about you. Obviously, it comes up in interviews ’cause it’s a big part of why I’m famous so I try to give good interviews and not shying away from that, but at the same time it’s like, bro. Just leave me alone.’


Well, we know Ye can be controversial.

Hair Bad Habits You Need To Avoid


We all desire long lustrous healthy hair and will do anything to achieve this perfect little dream. Most of us are guilty of buying a range of products and experimenting different hacks and tricks to keep our hair looking dazzling. We fall into bad habits that soon become routines and in the process interfere with the natural growth of our hair. 


EXCESSIVE HEAT

It is no secret that combing natural hair is hard and keeping the curls in place all day even harder. At the end of the day your hair might not look as neat as you had set it. While most ladies find it easier to work with straightened hair too much heat actually damages your crown.

NOT ENOUGH OR NO TRIMMING?

 We can be obsessed with length and might not be willing to trim our hair. However, lack of regular hair trims could result in split ends that eventually thins and weakens your hair. So don't be scared of that little trim, it could be the one ensuring your hair grows strong and healthy.

USING THE WRONG PRODUCTS

When it comes to selecting products suitable for your hair texture you need to be as careful as when you are selecting skin products. Ladies have a tendency of trying products based on their friends' recommendation which can work but not always. Others are just not sure of what products to use in the sea of options. Some products are harsher than others and could easily damage your hair or even scalp. It is important to understand the kind of products that work for your hair and stick to them.

SLEEPING WITH HEAD BONNET

It is not uncommon for some women to sleep without a head bonnet as they believe their natural hair is safe under whatever protective hairstyles they are rocking underneath. In realiity however, the hair could be more susceptible to damage as hair strands are tugged all night from the different sleeping styles. This not only weakens your hair but also causes dryness. For exposed natural hair, sleeping without a bonnet could lead to tangling and dryness.

DO NOT WASH YOUR HAIR WITH HOT WATER

Hot water is life but not for your hair. While many might believe that hot water will easily get rid of oils and dirt, it actually strips the hair and scalp of natural and essential oils, resulting in dry and weak hair. Washing your hair with lukewarm or cold water leaves it strong and gives it volume.

Here Are Skin Threatening Ingredients To Avoid In Your Cleanser


As part of our facial skincare routine, most of us will wash our face at least twice a day. And, when it comes to our skin, we are all different. Some of us are fair, some are dark and many of us are somewhere in between in terms of skin tone. Some of us are still quite young while others may be more young at heart than in our physical age. In addition, we all have different skin types, whether it be normal, oily, dry, combination or sensitive.

While there are numerous ingredients to avoid in your skincare products, here is our list of 5 ingredients to avoid in your cleanser and why:

PARABENS

Preservatives like methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben and butylparaben are known to mimic oestrogen which means they can interfere with our endocrine (hormone) function and they have been linked to increased breast cancer risk for some years now. A recent study, however, has indicated that parabens may trigger the growth of breast cancer cells more than it has been previously thought and at much lower doses. 

SODIUM LAURYL/LAURETH SULPHATE/SULFATE

Known as surfactants, these sulphates give your skin that squeaky clean feeling but that is only because they strip your skin of its natural oils which are designed to protect it. Used in car wash liquid, garage floor cleaners and car engine degreasers, these sulphates have been associated with organ system toxicity and allergic reactions.

PETROLATUM 

Also known as petroleum jelly, this is a by-product of petroleum production and is used for its moisturising properties. It ‘locks in’ moisture but can clog the pores, effectively ‘suffocating’ the skin and causing irritation. Possible contamination with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is also a concern as they have been associated with cancer. The European Union classifies petrolatum as a carcinogen and restricts its use in cosmetics.

FRAGRANCE 

 The word ‘fragrance’ can hide a whole litany of chemicals (including phthalates) that can cause headaches, dermatitis, allergies and asthma attacks. Phthalates in synthetic fragrances have been linked to reproductive problems and birth defects.

Diethanaolamine (DEA), Monoethanolamine (MEA) & Triethanolamine (TEA) 

 Associated with skin and eye irritation, may affect brain and body function and may cause organ system (liver, kidney) toxicity.
