Rihanna has apologized to the Muslim community for using a song featuring sacred Islamic texts as a soundtrack to her racy Savage x Fenty lingerie show.

 

On Friday, Oct. 2, Rihanna’s second annual show for her lingerie brand debuted on Amazon Prime Video sparked outrage amongst fans after models were seen dancing to “Doom,” a 2017 song by London-based producer Coucou Chloe featuring a snippet from the Hadith on judgement day.

 

 

The 32-year-old pop star has now apologized to those offended by the soundtrack in a heartfelt post she shared via her Instagram Story on Tuesday.

Harry Styles has mocked those who trolled his iconic Vogue cover by eating a banana while wearing a frilly suit.

 

The 25-year-old sparked controversy by wearing dresses in his shoot for Vogue.

 

One of those who called him out is right-wing pundit Candace Owens who slammed him for wearing a dress and said it was time to “bring back manly men”.

She tweeted at the time: “There is no society that can survive without strong men.

 

“The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminisation of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men.”

In the post shared to Instagram, the singer wore a powder blue blazer over a white frilled shirt, featuring pleated cuffs, and matching trousers.

 

Harry ate a banana in the picture, shot by Parker Woods for Variety, and captioned it: “Bring back manly men.”

The picture was part of a shoot to accompany Harry’s interview with Variety, in which he also ate a pomegranate and wore a pale pink silk blouse by Gucci and a pearl necklace.

 

In the interview, the former One Direction star addressed his style choices and took pride in his Vogue shoot, saying: “To not wear something because it’s female’ clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes.

“And I think what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like. It does’t have to be X or Y. Those lines are becoming more and more blurred.”

 

Harry is known for his eclectic and androgynous style, and in his Vogue shoot, he wore skirts and dresses as well as traditionally masculine trousers and shirts.

 

Admitting he always liked dressing up as a child, Harry said: “Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with. What’s really exciting is that all of these lines are just kind of crumbling away.

“When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play. I’ll go in shops sometimes, and I just find myself looking at the women’s clothes thinking they’re amazing.

 

“It’s like anything—anytime you’re putting barriers up in your own life, you’re just limiting yourself. There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes. I’ve never really thought too much about what it means—it just becomes this extended part of creating something.”

Reality show star and actress, Bisola Aiyeola has shared her thoughts on having a nuclear family unit as a single mother.

 

In an interview with The Sun, Bisola stated that it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home.

 

She said;

 

“There’s the urge to have that close nuclear family unit and then there’s the reality; it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home. I’ve heard from other people’s experiences too. Somehow, I’ve been able to manage all these years with my daughter. I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds.”

Bisola also revealed that the COVID-19 lockdown not only drew her closer to her daughter, but also gave her the privilege to discover her other creative sides.

 

She added;

 

“The sit-at-home situation just made me know my daughter better. We had more fun, cooked together. I also found out that she loves art; she also discovered that herself. She’s kind of finding art interesting, as we did lot of painting together. In fact, there were lots of bonding between my daughter and I, because in the last few years, there have been lots of ups and downs; she’s always going to school. It just brought us together more and that’s one thing I am grateful for.”
