In a recently-posted TikTok video, model Tess Holliday has responded to a commenter who says they follow “big fat” people for weight-loss motivation because it “grosses them out”.

“I can guarantee a lot of the larger bodies and individuals you’re following have happy, full lives, not despite them being fat, but they just are,” Holliday began in her video.

“You are seeking out content of larger bodied individuals as a way to make yourself feel better — which is kind of a weird thing to do,” she said.

The TikTok video lasts for two-and-a-half minutes, but instead of attacking the troll, Holliday calmly reasoned with their logic, pointing out the hatred and misinformation that fat people are targeted with every day.

“I’m used to people using me as their before pictures and inspo,” she said in the video, which was filmed while lying in bed. “But the one thing that I have maintained through all of this is my joy. And I am fatter right now than I’ve been in a while. But I’m also happier.”

“There are so many people that have been commenting lately saying that they can see my joy radiating. And that’s how other people see me,” she said, smiling.

The model went on to explain that if people view themselves as gross, that’s probably how they’re going to be seen by others, too.

“If you’re putting out into the world that you are grossed out by yourself, then more than likely that’s how you’re going to be perceived,” Holliday added.

She ended the video on a cheeky note: “And heaven forbid you gain all that weight back. What are you going to do then?”

This isn’t the first time Holliday has hit back at trolls, both online and or real life. Earlier this year she took to Instagram to speak out against a woman who fat-shamed her at the doctor’s office.

The model and blogger also started the Eff Your Beauty Standards movement, which aims to show women that they do not have to be a certain size to love their body (big or small) and that their size should not dictate their fashion choices.

In May 2021, Holliday announced that she had been diagnosed with anorexia and spoke about “regressing” in her recovery in an essay for Today.

“I didn’t know that’s what it was until last year — but for over 10 years, I have restricted food. That means I don’t eat — or when I do eat, it’s very little. Or sometimes it’s one large meal a day,” she said in the essay.

“My dietician, Anna Sweeney, first brought it to my attention. She told me, ‘I’m not licensed to diagnose you, but if I could, I would diagnose you with anorexia nervosa.’”

“When she said anorexia, I laughed. I thought, ‘Do you see how fat I am? There’s no way that word could ever be attached to someone my size,’” she said.

Exclusive: Beyoncé explains why she created Renaissance alongside epic new photo –




#Beyoncé #explains #created #Renaissance #epic #photo

We now know a bit more about Beyoncé‘s forthcoming new album, Renaissance.

The superstar singer posted an ethereal photo of herself upon a see-through horse on her Instagram account on Thursday (Friday morning AEST), captioned with some insight.

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” Beyoncé wrote.

“It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom.

“It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”

She released her first single, Break My Soul, from the new album last week and it became a quick hit.

The dance track was co-produced by the same team who brought us Single Ladies – Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Jay-Z is also on the writing credits, as are the writers of Robin S’s 1993 hit Show Me Love, which is prominently sampled in the song.

In an apparent slight to major streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, the song initially appeared only on Tidal – the streaming service co-owned by Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z – three hours before its announced release time of midnight in the US, and on Vevo/YouTube an hour or so later.

Beyoncé has a history of this: her 2016 Lemonade album was available only on Tidal for three years.

Renaissance, the singer’s long-expected seventh album, is set to come out on July 29.

Beyoncé’s last full-length album was Lemonade in 2016 – the singer has actually released four albums since this blockbuster outing, although none of them are full Beyoncé solo albums.

“I hope you find joy in this music,” she said on Instagram.

“I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Fans have already sleuthed information suggesting the album will contain 16 tracks, and signs of a multi-part release are clear from the billing as “Act 1”.

Sources told Variety the album will feature both dance and country-leaning tracks, with contributions from hit songwriter Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote Beyoncé’s 2008 hit Halo as well as hits for Adele, Taylor Swift, the Jonas Brothers and Tedder’s own group, OneRepublic.

Also said to be involved is Raphael Saadiq, who has crafted hits for Mary J Blige, D’Angelo, Stevie Wonder, John Legend and Andra Day as well as his own excellent solo albums, and executive-produced A Seat at the Table, Beyoncé’s sister Solange’s widely praised 2016 album.

Exclusive: See Michael Douglas as Benjamin Franklin in First Look at Apple TV+ Series –




See Michael Douglas as Benjamin Franklin in First Look at Apple TV+ Series

#Michael #Douglas #Benjamin #Franklin #Apple #Series

Michael Douglas is stepping into the shoes of renowned inventor, politician and writer Benjamin Franklin.

Apple TV+ shared a first look at the actor in the upcoming series Franklin June 30. In the photo, Douglas wears a long white wig and 18th century attire as he stands by a window, deep in thought. 

This is one of the first times Douglas has starred in a period piece, having previously played businessmen and other modern figures in moves like Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction and A Perfect Murder.

But executive producer Tony Krantz said his lack of experience in the genre doesn’t show. “Michael’s become the role, transforming his physicality, voice, cadence. And his humor is so much fun,” Krantz told Entertainment Weekly. “I think people will see one of Michael Douglas’ greatest performances ever in this project.”

The series will chronicle Franklin’s efforts to garner the support of the French monarchy during the American Revolution. At the time, the inventor was 70 and had little experience in diplomacy.
