WATCH: One Direction Break Our Hearts All Over Again With Another ‘Torn’ Cover

True Directioners will remember when the boys reprised Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” at Simon Cowell’s pad and then again in the final three of The X Factor UK compeitiion, and this week, as they release their fifth album and their first without Zayn Malik, the group have blessed us once more with their first performance of the song in five years.

Stopping by BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge” to promote a bunch of songs from the new album “Made In the A.M”, the boy band also proved that the fortune teller’s right and there’s nothing where Zayn used to lie with their old favourite “Torn”.

They also performed Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds”, which was fab, but the Natalie cover really showed us what it was to cry. While Harry Style’s voice and face have only gotten more beautiful over the past five years, we also don’t know who would object to these four now-adult men talking about lying naked on the floor.

Australian actress Clare Bowen has revealed why she cut all her hair off recently, and the reason will break your heart and inspire you all at the same time.

Sharing a tell-all post with her Facebook fans, Clare begins by asking “Wanna know why I cut it all off?” before revealing the painful story which got her to this point. The Nashville star explained that when she was just four years old she was diagnosed with end stage nephroblastoma, a mass of cancer cells that grow in the kidney area.

Because of her severe condition, she grew up surrounded by children just like her in hospital, who she says were “mostly bald, all tubed, taped, bandaged up and stitched back together.” (more…)

Pia Muehlenbeck is celebrating the first birthday of her brand Slinkii Athletic by shutting up shop for ten days, using the opportunity to send a powerful message about saving the planet we live in. 

The influencer with over 825,000 followers is closing her online store after its busiest month to date as she would instead like us to focus our energy into helping the environment by planting trees. 

Explaining that we are making food unsustainably and chopping down trees to allow animals to graze, Pia is calling upon her fans, followers and customers to help her initiative because “If the human race don’t start to make a change and actively start to plant trees, our main source of oxygen will simply diminish.” (more…)

Robyn Lawley Explains How We Can ‘Prepare’ for Post-Baby Bodies

Robyn Lawley has further explained the decision to reveal her stretch marks saying it was a bid to start the conversation on post-baby bodies and help future mothers feel prepared for the changes they are about to face.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia at Maxim Australia‘s Hot 100 party last night, the Aussie model explained that seeing other post-baby bodies will help women come to terms with the bodily changes which follow pregnancy and birth. “No one sees post-body after baby and I think had I seen it, I’d be more prepared. Or had other women seen it, they’d be prepared…. And be okay with it,” she explained. (more…)

Tyra Banks has already done so much for mankind. She taught us how to smize, created America’s Next Top Model, gave us a daily dose of Chrissy Teigen’s humor on her talk show and the list goes on. She’s continuing to use her powers for good with a campaign that sells eyeshadow and, get this, fights cigarette smoking.

“Smoke Your Eyes, Not Cigarettes” is a new collaboration between Tyra Beauty and truth, the organization behind all those scary anti-smoking commercials. It features a Smoky Smize kit ($89) with a mascara, lipstick, eye highlighter, eyeshadow palette and a limited-edition makeup bag that reads, “The only things I smoke are my eyes.” The palette, brilliantly dubbed the “Smoky Smize,” includes four wet/dry smoky shades with names like “Light ‘Em Up” and “Smolder,” and a unique angled brush. Using the Smoky Smize palette, shoppers are encouraged to give themselves a “TYover” (duh a Tyra makeover) for the holidays and recreate her “Sexy Smokeshow” look. (more…)
