Published

Remember that British kid with the headphones who made a name for himself with songs like “7 Days” and “Fill Me In”, well he ain’t scrawny no mo! Craig David posted a pictured of himself on Instagram showing off his toned physique, explaining that the picture keeps him motivated to stay healthy.

“I just go to this photo on my phone … under the folder ‘Stay Focused’, which reminds me instantly to get back on track, and in this case reminds me how good it feels when I achieve my goal and don’t listen to my ‘old inner weakness’ voice trying to remind me of how I used to be!” he writes.

“Trust me it works!!! All I hear inside when I see this photo is … Stop being weak and fix up … you’ve done it before, you can do it again! Booom!”

Well good for you, Craig. Now, excuse the rest of us while we find the nearest treadmill.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
