Forever 21 is apologizing… Chevel Shepherd wins “The Voice”… Kate Hudson is the newest Weight Watchers spokesperson… Cardi B’s baby post… and Selena Gomez reappears on Instagram since entering treatment
Forever 21 is apologizing because their ad for a Wakanda Forever Christmas sweater featured a white model. In fact, he couldn’t be much whiter — pale skin with blonde hair and blue eyes. Should any merchandise involving “Black Panther” only include African-Americans? A lot of people think so. After receiving a lot of backlash, a rep for the company told TMZ, “Forever 21 takes feedback on our products and marketing extremely seriously. We celebrate all superheroes with many different models of various ethnicities and apologize if the photo in question was offensive in any way.”

SPOILER ALERT: The winner of “The Voice” has been crowned, and she is 16-year old Chevel Shepherd from Team Kelly. This is the second straight win for Kelly Clarkson, and on top of that, this is the first time in the show’s history that a country singer NOT coached by Blake Shelton has won.

Oprah Winfrey introduced us to the newest Weight Watchers spokesperson, Kate Hudson, and now both women are getting backlash. Why? One, because you can’t do ANYTHING without receiving backlash, and two, because people think Kate isn’t relatable. Sure, she just had a baby couple months ago and wants to get back to her pre-baby weight, but Kate has never had a weight problem and she even has her own line of workout clothes. To be fair, Weight Watchers has rebranded with the tagline “Wellness That Works,” meaning they’re putting less of an emphasis on dieting and weight loss and more on overall well-being, so wouldn’t Kate be perfect for that?

Remember how Cardi B said she turned down six figures for a picture of her baby Kulture but the minute she and Offset broke up over his attempt at a threesome, she posted a picture of their daughter? Offset’s dad has something to say about that. Someone took a screengrab of his social media post where he claims Cardi posted that photo out of spite because Offset was supposed to do the big reveal by putting Kulture’s photo on his next album cover.

Selena Gomez checked herself into a mental health center back in October because she was depressed and emotional over complications from her kidney transplant. But it looks like Selena is doing great because she’s hanging out with her friends, tubing on the slopes, looking well rested and happy. Her friends, Bailee Madison and Connor Franklin, tagged pictures of Selena on their Instagram accounts. Selena has still not returned to social media.
