WATCH: Aussie Who Ousted Social Media Cries Happy Tears, ‘Overwhelmed’ by Response

She’s become the household name that everybody is talking about after revealing an unattractive reality behind social media, and now Aussie teen Essena O’Neill wants everyone to know how grateful she is for the positive reactions in a teary new video.

Dubbed “Overwhelmed and Beyond Words Grateful”, Essena fronts the camera with her new-found au naturel look, crying throughout the entire heartfelt soliloquy as she shows viewers her very, very full inbox.

Telling us all that she has never “been happier than this moment”, Essena reveals that she was “scared” about how her story might be perceived, wondering if people even wanted to be exposed to the controversial truth of social media, which has noticeably escalated during the last few years.

Jessica Mauboy pulled out of singing the national anthem for the Melbourne Cup yesterday at the last minute, quite literally, with Nadia Aya taking the stage just 30 seconds before Jessica was supposed to.

Even though the “Burn” crooner  was introduced to the stage by announcers at Flemington Racecourse, replacement Nadia stepped in to sing “Advance Australia Fair” as Jessica faced issues with “clothing and preparation”, according to her representative. 

In the worst kind of morning after for Jessica, 2GB radio king Alan Jones suggested that the 26-year-old Australian Idol alum refused to wear shoes supplied by Myer, the official race sponsor. (more…)

Rebel Wilson has put her inability to walk in high heels to good use on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, taking on an entire obstacle course in under 60 seconds all while wearing a pair of sky-high shoes.

“There’s a lot of things I’m not good at — running, making healthy choices at restaurants — but the worst thing is walking in high heels. I cannot do it,” the 35-year-old Aussie actress revealed.

Naturally she was put to the test by Ellen and asked to climb, dart and dribble like she was in primary school all over again, only this time she was asked to spin around for some appropriate dizziness first, do the whole thing with a martini in her hand, and wear some epic heels, of course. Don’t worry, she had a Footlocker staff member/coach alongside her to make sure she was safe.

As expected, Rebel did the whole thing in hilarious fashion. For someone who claims she “cannot” do high heels bigger than the kitten style she was wearing, we’d say the Torrid designer did a pretty phenom job. (more…)

Watch: Celebrate Movember with 100 Years of Men’s Hairstyles in 2 Minutes

As our current obsession with full beards proves, men enjoy hair trends too. In fact, in the last 100 years, men’s hairstyles have transformed dramatically, getting longer and fuller with each passing decade. In a new video for Watchcut, model/hearthrob Samuel Orson demonstrates the evolution of hairstyles from greased down hair and middle parts in the 20s to 50s pompadours to the free-spirited long hair of the 70s and beyond.

Gear Up for Movember with 30 Bearded Male Models ]

While we’re partial to the glorious man bun of the 2010s, Orson says his favorite decade was the 90s “just because I idolize Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl and it felt good to [look like] a mix of them.” Orson, who usually wears a man bun and beard, agreed to cut his hair for the clip. Since the WatchCut team wanted to use Orson’s natural hair without extensions, they shot the decades out of sequence from the longest hair look to the shortest.

Debuting just in time for #Movember, the clip is a collaboration with The Movember Foundation, a global charity created to raise awareness about mens health. Feel free to contribute to the cause by making Orson your #MCM every week. You know, for charity.
