It's an umbilical cord - it nourished and connected baby to mother for nine months. Without it there would be no baby - it is a miraculous part of our human engineering and so why does it provoke a reaction of such disgust? Rochelle is proud of hers - so why does her decision to preserve it warrant such discussion?
As I read recently, kindness is sexy, it's good for us, it makes us feel happy and valued. Positive action starts with small individual deeds that accumulate over time and become a movement... a movement toward a more equal society where kindness anchors our feet to the ground while giving us the momentum to keep chipping away together. With my voice, I hope the feminist mind set my family instilled in me becomes the new normal, and boys and girls are raised to know they are equal.
While I'm not a huge selfie aficionado, the creative geniuses of Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus have helped boost the art of selfies to stratospheric levels. Their genre defining style has led to absolute domination and power, with Kim managing to become the first selfie career artist.
Young people wearing make-up has always been a topic of debate, but when one of the young carers I work with wrote a song about how it affects her for one of our choir sessions, I felt inspired to write about the issue.
Stacey Solomon, X Factor finalist, Queen of the Jungle and regular Loose Women panellist vlogs about the stigma she has faced for having two sons by different fathers and how, as a result, she feels increasingly conflicted about whether she should have more children.
During Saturdays' Screen Actors Guild Awards, Mahershala Ali and the 'Stranger Things' cast joined the trope of Hollywood actors who have spoken out against Donald Trump's authoritarian leadership. Despite being stereotypically preoccupied with gold-plated awards, fashion shows and film premiers, dozens of influential public figures have recently exhibited their political zeal, triggered by the 'inhumane' and 'un-American' actions of the United States 45th President.
In the Summer of 2015, Kylie Jenner moved to register the trademark 'Kylie' with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for advertising and endors...
Children say and do the stupidest things. Adults say and do even stupider things. But no one says and does stupid things in quite the same way as cele...
In the third edition of Into It, we're discussing the recent SAG Awards, which saw a staggering number of celebrities using their platforms to speak out amid the current political climate, and debating whether awards ceremonies are really the place for such statements.
Sure. Shall we just get back to talking about the depressing state the world is in? We could continue discussing the relentless stream of doom that the news has turned into over the past few months? Or perhaps we could just forego conversation completely, and wait silently underground for the end of days?
My life was ruined. I felt like a big piece of me had also died. No one wanted to work with me. The media made me out to be a horrible person. And my singing meant nothing. Because Whitney was dead.
Since when did the world get so incredibly competitive? A long time ago many would say. Back in the day! Yes, ok... I know the grass is always greener the other side of the fence, I know, I know, it always has been.
If you look at the records, he simply doesn't exist, as if he was a somehow nothing more than a figment of my imagination. But he's so much more than that. And while Archie was only on this Earth for a few short minutes, he existed to me. He was, and will always be, my little boy and there's not a day goes by that I don't think of him. You see, according to UK law as it stands, a parent cannot be issued with a birth certificate if the child is born showing no signs of life before 24 weeks.
Last year's Brit Awards Show was widely criticised as it failed to include any black or ethnic minority artists in the main prize categories which led to #BritsSoWhite going viral. Following the public uproar, organisers admitted they needed to make changes to the way the nominations were chosen and so unveiled a new Voting Academy, one that would ensure that the show better demonstrated the diversity of the UK's music scene.
Being an icon is about breaking boundaries and changing mass perceptions through actions and achievements. Surely it is insulting to scientists and medical pioneers to call Kim Kardashian an icon, when they are inventing, developing and saving lives on a daily basis.
I am not claiming to have been more upset than anyone else; but George Michael's sudden death affected me because he played a part in my life in a way that David Bowie, Prince or George Martin did not. So the next time the Grim Reaper comes calling for a celebrity, I will have sympathy for those that surprise me with their emotions rather than snigger and sneer.
