Melissa McCarthy, who surprised her fans earlier this year with her 50 pounds weight loss, launched a clothing line a while ago and today, she is back to show us her fall collection, with cute mix and match pieces that she is modeling herself.

Melissa on her Seven7 collection that carries sizes for all:

The fun of it is you should be able to put these things together and not have to make a choice about going out to dinner or getting the sweater. Wear the sweater to dinner!

Earlier this year, Melissa shared some details about her 50 pounds weight loss:

I actually am a size 14. No trick, nothing to tell, just super boring life. You bring it real down, you don’t do anything fun and you go to bed at 7:30 — that’s the trick. (My) husband will ask, “Is it five and are you in jammies?” “I’m gonna call them loungewear.

Male Mondays: Zayn Malik

worryingly-thin-frame - Male Mondays: Zayn Malik

For our Male Mondays this week, we’ve got highly requested Zayn Malik and a collection of pictures featuring the singer from the past months – some even with hot model girlfriend Gigi Hadid. Zayin has been under media scrutiny for a wide range of reasons in the past years, one being his worryingly thin frame circa 2014.

And regarding his preferences when it comes to the female body, Zayn allegedly pressured girlfriend Gigi to put on weight after her considerable weight loss in the past year. That comes as no surprise, as the 23 year-old singer was quoted a while back saying:

“I need a challenge. Also, I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas — the nice areas. I like a fuller woman. I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion.”

Back in 2014, the English singer sparked drug use accusations as he revealed a worryingly thin frame:

Gillian Anderson Talks Plastic Surgery and Sex Symbol Status

gillian-anderson-plastic-surgery

On her sex-symbol status and her daily insecurities:

‘I never understood that. I had no clue what anybody was talking about. And it suddenly hit me… there is no relevance to me whatsoever. It’s just outward projection. Sometimes I don’t think about [ageing] for long stretches. And then I’ll go through a few days where I feel particularly old, ugly, whatever. And then I’ll either get some sleep and it’s passed or I don’t care.’

On how she feels strongly that she won’t opt for plastic surgery:

‘At 47, I feel quite strongly that I wouldn’t do plastic surgery, but also, I know that I am a vain woman. Talk to me in ten years – they may have invented something which feels less invasive, and then it’s possible that the line will be easier to cross. I don’t want to say never. I don’t want to be hypocritical about it.’

… says the actress.

Despite Gillian’s words, the tabloids have been hinting for a while that the actress already opted for a wide range of plastic surgery procedures – here’s what Daily Mail’s ‘specialists’ think:

Demi Lovato: “I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body”

demiglamour-741x1024

Demi Lovato recently opened up to Glamour Magazine about body image, the lack of normal bodies in Taylor Swift’s squad and feminism:

On the negative response to her “Body Say” images:

You don’t say anything, because you can never win. Whether they’re saying that you’re ugly, or that you’re a whore, or that you’re a bad role model, or something else, you’re never gonna win.

On exploring sexuality in her image and music:

We live in an imbalanced society when it comes to encouraging male sexuality and discouraging female sexuality. In 20 years I hope we’ll look back like, Wow, that’s how it used to be.

Question: You’ve said before, in regard to Taylor Swift, “Don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work.” How do you see yourself doing the work?

Just speaking out. I’m not afraid to talk about the fact that women get paid less than men in the United States and how unfair that is. Talking about it at all is doing the work. And I think every woman does her part in some way. But I think in certain situations, certain people could be doing more if they’re going to claim that as part of their brand. To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.

Question: Well, there are many kinds of “normal” bodies. I think what you’re getting at is there’s just one type of body in that squad.

It’s not realistic. And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. We all do things that aren’t, but I have to ask myself, Am I content with calling myself a feminist? Yes, because I speak out.

Question: Do things besides a busy schedule still trigger you?

Yeah, of course. Seeing cocaine in movies. I’ve never watched The Wolf of Wall Street. I can’t. I don’t like to go out to clubs, because I find myself seeing remnants of drugs in the bathroom. I did the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special, and being surrounded by supermodels’ bodies was triggering to me. I remember asking, “How do you maintain your figure?” Some said, “I really have to work at it.” Others said, “It’s genetics.” It was interesting to hear that it wasn’t through unhealthy [behaviors]. It was a great learning experience. I still felt sexy, having a different body than these women. I had Wilmer there, who loved my curves—that helped.

Taylor Swift’s squad that lacks normal bodies, according to Demi:

Demi Lovato to a Fan: “Is that how my boobs should look?”

ffn_vcv_52108525

The full story from Huffington Post:

[A fan] drawing of Lovato topless with a mermaid tail caught the singer’s attention, and not in the good way.

Is that how my boobs should look?” she commented on a fan’s Instagram that reposted the photo this week. “It’s gorgeous but that’s not my body.”

The drawing is inspired by a sultry promotional shot from her new single “Body Say,” which shows Lovato nude, but sans mermaid tail, in the same position. Unlike the fan artwork, however, bed sheets largely cover her bust and waist.

Vladimir Serbanescu, the Romanian artist responsible for the image, quickly defended his artwork on Instagram and responded to Lovato’s accusation that he misrepresented her body.

“If i make your waist slimmer and your boobs bigger to accentuate the fact that i drew you as a mermaid, a mythological creature, doesn’t mean I say that you should look like that or all girls should look like that,” he wrote. “That’s how i imagine mermaids. I worked a lot on that drawing and i was proud of it, but not anymore.”
