Adrienne Bailon Gets Her Butt Tattoo Removed

Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 8.39.18 AM

Adrienne Bailon has been pretty open about how she regrets getting one tattoo in particular, on her butt. And Finally she is getting it removed! Lawd, I know she is happy to say bye-bye to her butt tattoo that says her x-boyfriend’s name “Rob Kardashian” (I know her new boyfriend is happy too.)

The Real talk show host once dated Rob Kardashian in a very public relationship it 2007. Their love for each other was so “real” that they both got matching tattoo’s of each others names (except Adrienne’s name is on Rob’s ribs). But, when the couple split 5 years ago in 2009, their tattoo’s have lived on way past their love expiration date .

Adrienne has tried to remove the tattoo before but tattoo removals are not as easy and are very painful. She explains;

 

“I’ve had really painful experiences before, doing laser tattoo removal. Really smelling like flesh burning. Ahh!..For me getting the tattoo was painful, and living for the last past six years with somebodies name on your body is a little weird, and a bit more painful to have to like you know (one day) explain that to my kids..”

 

She is determined to get the tattoo removed for good but in a safe way, trying a new laser procedure  called “Picosure” that will take 5 sessions.

“PicoSure is an FDA-cleared laser tattoo removal technology that—in contrast to earlier methods—uses much shorter light pulses to break up ink pigments with less residual heating of surrounding tissue. Also used to treat age spots and pigmented skin.”

Tattoo removals can cost anywhere from $75-$5,000 depending on the location of the tattoo, size, ink color, and how many sessions it take to be completely removed.

The Perfect Sports Bra: Nike’s Pro Bra Collection

Screen shot 2014-07-14 at 12.53.28 PMScreen shot 2014-07-14 at 12.54.02 PM   As a female, there is nothing worse than working out with a bra that doesn’t fit, is too loose, or does not have enough support to keep your breasts in place. This is why Nike has spent two years in the lab trying to perfect the perfect sports bra!  And now it is here! Introducing the The Nike Pro Bra Collection, this is the answer to the female athletes prayer.

“We have a saying here, ‘No bra, no workout, no run’,” says Julie Igarashi, Vice President of Global Design for Nike Women’s Training. “The majority of women are wearing the wrong-sized bra. This is something we needed to fix.” 

The Nike Pro Bra Collection are all complemented by the new Nike Pro 360 Fit System, which employs a Nike-created calculator to help female athletes find their precise size. Being properly measured and fitted into the right size sports bra, will help you focus more on your workout, and not on worrying about popping out (literally). The Nike Pro Bra Collection contains five different types of Bra’s featuring different types of support for all female athletes. The Nike Pro Rival Bra, which delivers the highest level of support and is offered in 25 sizes to help the female athlete find the right fit. The collection also features the new Nike Pro Fierce Bra, which looks almost like a real bra, with the underwire support which can be visually seen. There is also  the updated Nike Pro Classic and Nike Pro Indy Bras. The Nike Pro Classic Bra is also available in a padded version.

“In addition to measuring displacement, our testing also revealed that in most sports a female athlete plays, breasts tend to move in the shape of a butterfly—up and left, down, up and right, down,” says Martine Mientjes, Nike Apparel Innovation Project Research Director. “With a scientific understanding of how the breast moves, our designers were able to be extremely precise in where to emphasize added support in the bras.”

The Nike Pro Bra Collection and calculator will be available beginning July 14. For a breakdown of each bra in the collection, from highest to lightest support see the picture gallery below.

Lady Gaga Poses Nude For V Magazine

20130724-095949.jpg

Although Lady Gaga has been out of the music scene, she is still doing big things….and showing every-thang!

Just recently, Gaga posed nude for V Mag to promote her upcoming album, titled ARTPOP.

After the shoot, photographers Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadi posted the pics on Instragram and Tumblr, saying:

“Get ready world for our pics of @ladygaga for @vmagazine !kisses iv #artpop.”

Perhaps this shoot was the “healthy” come back for Lady Gaga! She looked very confident with her body especially since receiving recent criticism about her weight, which forced her to reveal her eating disorder as a teenager.

The “Born This Way” artist also looked fully recovered from the hip surgery that she underwent in February.

We are glad to see the Mother Monster looking healthy and strong, and maintaining that flawless physique. Lookin’ good, girl!

article-0-1B01DAD5000005DC-673_634x600

If there is anything Miley Cyrus is good at besides twerking, it is getting her “Smilers” to raise money for ANY charity. The most recent charity Miley Cyrus is supporting is Marc Jacobs “Protect The Skin You’re In” Charity. This campaign raises skin cancer awareness and all proceeds go to the NYU Langone Medical Center as well as the NYU Cancer Institution. Many celebrities including the most recent being Miley Cyrus pose nude for this charity. Since 2006, Victoria Beckham, Naomi Watts, Kate Upton, and many others have been big supports. These pictures then get published on t-shirts in which people can buy.

Miley Cyrus’ shirts came out less than a week ago and were released in nine Marc Jacobs’ stores in America and online and have already sold out. Shirts will be available for purchase in Europe in August. If you are interested in purchasing a t-shirt for $35.00 but are not in one of the nine cities that they were released in, check out Marc Jacobs’ website to purchase one!

Katy Perry Dishes In On Her Prep To Pose For The Cover Of Vogue Mag: No More Beer

20130728-123548.jpg

No more brewski‘s, well not for Katy Perry that is.

Perry opened up to Jay Leno last Friday regarding her preparation for the July Vogue cover photo spread, saying:

“I did a lot of my own prepping. I kind of went on a cleanse, I did a lot of stuff like vitamins and supplements, I changed my coffee to green tea, I didn’t drink alcohol for three months. I was really in the zone, I just wanted to be glowing for that cover.”

Benefits of multivitamins are that they can assist in improving overall physical and mental health, and lower the risk of illness. It helps people stay healthy and lower their stress levels.

Since Perry also switched from coffee to green tea, the advantage of drinking green tea is that it has plenty of antioxidants. It can also prevent cancer, assist in weight loss, and  promotes heart health. The best benefit that green tea has is that it helps with anti-aging, and protects the skin from wrinkling. A definite plus!

Great job Katy for making some healthy alternatives, your body sure shows that it loves you!

Geraldo Rivera Posts Semi-Nude Selfie

20130726-122849.jpg

Is that who we think that is? Why yes, it’s Geraldo! Where have you been, seriously?

Taking selfies! There is definitely no shame in his game.

The Fox News Channel host recently took the popular “bathroom selfie” of himself partially nude and later posting it on Twitter, saying:

“70 is the new 50.” He also added: “Erica (wife) and family are going to be so pissed…but at my age..”

The actual 70-year-old Geraldo also said that this pic will land him in hot water. Tsk, tsk, tsk!

Hmmm….We wonder what is he doing to look so good at his age? Looks like he’s been keeping fit. He shouldn’t be found guilty for showing pride of his accomplishments.

You got to admit, his bod doesn’t look like that of a 70-year-old person. Not bad, Geraldo!
