Coco Austin Defends Her Braids After Getting Heat Online — ‘It’s Not A Race War’

Coco Austin

Coco Austin is not messing around!

Ice-T‘s wife proudly debuted braids last week on Instagram… and after getting a ton of backlash online, the 38-year-old has taken to social media to respond to the controversy over her new “summer style” that she dubbed “Da Coco Swoop”!

The momma-of-one argued in a video post:

“So, recently I got social media’s panties in a bunch because I did braids to my hair. This is so stupid. I can’t believe I’m talking about it, and I believe this shouldn’t be turned out to be a race thing. This is what happened: I did my braids and I called them the Coco Swoop. I name all my styles that I do to myself. These are called the Coco Swoop. The braids before were called the Bo Derek braids. And it’s a Coco-ism. I’ve always done it.”

She added:

“Why can’t we all rename hairstyles or braids? That sounds so stupid. Why is everybody claiming something they shouldn’t? I know braids have been around for thousands of years. Don’t you think I know that? If I want to wear a pineapple on my head, then I should be able to wear a pineapple on my head and call it the Pineapple Cocowop. I don’t know. You see where I’m going with this? Why is everybody hating?”

In part two, the model didn’t understand why everyone was making this a “race war”:

Beyoncé, she does this hairstyle, and now it’s the ‘Lemonade’, but no one’s gonna get mad at her, right? So, at the end of the day, this shouldn’t be a race war. This should be a ‘human thing.’ Right? Everybody should be able to do it. It’s a ‘human thing.’ Give that a shot. Not a race war. It has nothing to do with race.”

Demi Lovato Responds To Critics Calling Her Out For Cultural Appropriation

Demi Lovato defends her dreads.

Demi Lovato is not backing down.

The singer was accused of cultural appropriation when fans spotted her sporting dreadlocks in the No Promises video with Cheat Codes. Viewers immediately questioned her use of the hairstyle considering there is always a discord when white or non-black people sport them.

Twitter went in:

And now Demi herself has addressed the controversy. But if you thought an apology was involved, you’re so, so wrong.

She tweeted:

Then she changed the subject to her appearance on Jimmy Fallon:

Hmm, pulling the “haters” card is bound to garner some sympathy. But is it really hating when people are just pointing out that you may have done something wrong?

Well, whatever. The 24-year-old is clearly unbothered since she gave the most condescending response ever.

Do YOU think Demi was out of line???

Well This Is One Way To Avoid Herpes, Khloé Kardashian!

no title

We will never look at a threading studio the same way ever again!

Recently, Khloé Kardashian wrote a blog entry on her website where she gives her subscribers a helpful guide to removing hair from one’s body.

The KUWTK star wrote:

“The shit women have to deal with, LOL! With swim season around the corner, it’s time to get our hairy situations under control. Here’s how I make sure my underarms, legs, bikini line and more are in check.

In addition to her bikini line and underarms, KoKo does laser hair removal for her long, sexy legs!

“I recently started lasering my legs too. It’s so much easier than having to shave every single day. I go to my girl at a place called Sev Laser. Kylie [Jenner] goes here too and we loooove it!!! My girl Sev is dope and is my Armenian sister from another mister.”

However, when it comes to her eyebrows, Tristan Thompson‘s girlfriend NEVER threads in fear of getting herpes (the oral kind)!

Confused?? Miz Kardashian explains:

“I always darken my brows because they are naturally light, but to shape them, I wax and never, ever thread. I heard the grossest story about threading! Someone had herpes on their mouth and then the client got it on their brows! I don’t thread because someone’s saliva might be going on my face!”

You learn something new everyday!

See Chris Hemsworth’s Sexy Haircut & Cate Blanchett’s Smoky Eye In RIDICULOUS First Official Pics From Thor: Ragnarok!

This movie is going to be so out there, and we fucking LOVE IT!

Everything we’ve heard about Thor: Ragnarok (outer space, gladiator Hulk, Jurassic Park reunion) makes it sound like the craziest movie of 2017, and the colorful first official pics seem to bear that impression out.

Video: New Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer Shows First Look Of Kurt Russell As Chris Pratt’s Father!

In Entertainment Weekly‘s cover story, complete with several set pics (above), we get our first look at:

1. Chris Hemsworth as Thor, returning with a close-cropped haircut and some new swords. (Same guns though.)

2. Cate Blanchett as Hela, the Norse goddess of the dead. (Rocking some serious smoky eye and goth hair!)

3. Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, another Asgardian warrior who is totally going to steal Thor from Natalie Portman‘s absent ass. (Also, not those arms! She puts Liam Hemsworth to shame!)

4. Mark Ruffalo, returning as Hulk to do battle with Thor. (Taking out all that Trump era aggression we hope.)

5. Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster. (Who may or may not interact directly with Jurassic Park star Sam Neill, who is also set to appear in an unidentified role.)

6. Tom Hiddleston getting his sexy liar Loki on. (We’ve heard for the last time!)

Of course, the pics — many of which look like they were taken at a children’s paintball party — probably won’t be the final color-corrected looks on film.

But we do get confirmation of the craziness of the threequel from director Taika Waititi, who previously brought us the ridiculous comic capers What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt For The Wilderpeople.

He tells the mag regarding the wackier tone:

“I think sometimes people mistake a tonal shift as ‘We’re just going to make some ridiculous broad comedy where no one gives a shit what happens and everyone gets stoned and sits around talking about saving the universe.’ We want people to care what happens and care that the hero succeeds. I think tonally it’s like a slight shift. I don’t feel nervous — I feel good about it.”

Are you excited for the crazier look of Thor: Ragnarok??
