When appearing on ‘Keep It’ podcast, Adrienne Banfield-Norris does not hold back on her experience sitting down with the social media influencer about her parents’ role in the college admissions scandal.

Jada Pinkett Smith‘s mother found it unpleasant to interview Olivia Jade on “Red Table Talk”. More than two weeks after she sat down with Lori Loughlin‘s daughter for the Facebook Watch series to discuss her parents’ involvement in the college bribery scandal, Adrienne Banfield-Norris admitted the discussion was “frustrating” for her.

The 67-year-old made the honest confession when appearing on the “Keep It” podcast. Of the experience, she said, “It was frustrating, but at the end of the day, I felt like people understood how I felt. There were some things about it that were a little frustrating. I felt like as a 21-year-old young adult, that she needed to be way more aware of what’s going on in the world, and that was a little frustrating.”

“I heard people make comments, like, ‘Well, kids don’t watch the news.’ Please,” she continued explaining. “The news on TV is not the only place where you understand what’s going on with the world and if you think that then you’re old! Because young people are not relying on the news. My generation is not relying on the news. I’m on my phone, on social media all the time.”

Adrienne went on to suggest that Olivia needs to broaden her knowledge of the world. “There’s just a lot of education she needs to do for herself,” she stressed. “But I understand that that’s the world they’re in. Her life experiences have not put her in the space where she needs to be concerned about those kinds of things, really. I don’t really know how to address that because it is about how you’re raised and what you’re exposed to.”

Adrienne, Jada and Willow Smith welcomed Olivia as their guest for the Tuesday, December 8 episode of “Red Table Talk”. In the beginning, Adrienne was against the interview as she explained, “I just found it really ironic that she chose three Black women to reach out to for her redemption story. I feel like here we are, [a] white woman coming to Black women for support when we don’t get the same from them. Her being here is the epitome of white privilege to me.”

During the interview, Adrienne voiced her frustration over white privilege to Olivia. “I’m exhausted with everything we have to deal with as a community and I just don’t have the energy to put into the fact that you lost your endorsements or you’re not in school right now,” she told the social media influencer.

“Because, at the end of the day, you’re going to be okay, your parents are going to go in and they’re gonna do their 60 days and they’re gonna pay their fine and you guys will go on and be okay and live your life,” she added. “And there’s so many of us that it’s not going to be that situation. It just makes it very difficult right now for me to care in this atmosphere we are in right now.”

Lauren Hutton | Lauren Hutton: Sex is my beauty secret

lauren hutton 2219834

Lauren Hutton has revealed sex is her beauty secret.

The 77-year-old model believes getting intimate with someone can be great for helping her maintain glowing skin as it is great exercise.

She said: “Making love is pretty good exercise, too! I think it’s important to be held and to hold someone, and to love someone if we can. A man can be hard to find, [because] I think there are way more good women than good men. I don’t know why, I guess that’s because of privilege. They’ve been the head sex for 6,000 years! That’ll make you feel like you’re in a really exclusive club.

“Sex is still absolutely a beauty secret for me – I hope I believe that forever. Although I’ve always talked [about sex], I never spoke about who my mates and partners are, that’s for sure. Nobody ever knew the man I lived with for 26 years – no one knew his name.”

However, the ‘I Feel Pretty’ star admitted the best secret to great skin is having “good photographers” that capture her best side.

She said: “I guess [the secret is] good photographers. It’s not retouching, they don’t retouch me.”

What’s more, Lauren has learned how to care for her skin over the years as her body changed from age and lifestyle habits and has since become “rabid” about moisturiser.

She explained to British Vogue: “My skin has gotten really thin because of my age – I’m 77 – and because I have spent probably half of my life near the equator. [The skin is] our first organ, you know, and the barrier to everything. So I’ve become rabid about moisturiser, and luckily I have a very good medical skincare cream contract, that helps a lot! I used to be more of a soap and water person because I was always trying to be as fast as possible to get to work. Now, I get the pleasure of trying all of Strivectin’s products. It’s really good.”

New York Dolls | New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain dead at 69

sylvain sylvain 2219683

New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain has died.

The 69-year-old musician – who was an original member of the band and stayed with them until they split for a second time in 2012 – had been battling cancer for over two years but passed away on Wednesday (13.01.21).

A statement shared on his Facebook page by his wife, Wanda O’Kelley Mizrahi, read: As most of you know, Sylvain battled cancer for the past two and 1/2 years.

“Though he fought it valiantly, yesterday he passed away from this disease.

“While we grieve his loss, we know that he is finally at peace and out of pain. Please crank up his music, light a candle, say a prayer and let’s send this beautiful doll on his way.”

The band’s frontman, David Johansen, has also paid tribute to his “best friend”.

He wrote on Instagram: “My best friend for so many years, I can still remember the first time I saw him bop into the rehearsal space/bicycle shop with his carpetbag and guitar straight from the plane after having been deported from Amsterdam, I instantly loved him.

“I’m gonna miss you old pal. I’ll keep the home fires burning.”

The statement from Wanda also included a touching tribute from musician Lenny Kaye, who touchingly reflected on the life of the “lynchpin” of the group.

Lenny wrote: “Syl loved rock and roll.

“His onstage joy, his radiant smile as he chopped at his guitar, revealed the sense of wonder he must have felt at the age of 10, emigrating from his native Cairo with his family in 1961, the ship pulling into New York Harbor and seeing the Statue of Liberty for the first time.”

“His role in the band was as lynchpin, keeping the revolving satellites of his bandmates in precision.

“Though he tried valiantly to keep the band going, in the end the Dolls’ moral fable overwhelmed them, not before seeding an influence that would engender many rock generations yet to come.

“The New York Dolls heralded the future, made it easy to dance to.

“From the time I first saw their poster appear on the wall of Village Oldies in 1972, advertising a residency at the Mercer Hotel up the street, throughout their meteoric ascent and shooting star flame-out, the New York Dolls were the heated core of this music we hail, the band that makes you want to form a band.

“Syl never stopped. In his solo lifeline, he was welcomed all over the world, from England to Japan, but most of all the rock dens of New York City, which is where I caught up with him a couple of years ago at the Bowery Electric. Still Syl. His corkscrew curls, tireless bounce, exulting in living his dream, asking the crowd to sing along, and so we will. His twin names, mirrored, becomes us.

“Thank you Sylvain x 2, for your heart, belief, and the way you whacked that E chord. Sleep Baby Doll.

The ‘Hot Girl Summer’ hitmaker commented on the ‘positions’ singer’s visual Instagram clip of the track, which features two mystery artists with a question mark over their faces and Ariana inside a television box, with a series of eyes emojis.

Ariana previously teased a duet between herself and Doja and gushed about how in awe she is of the ‘Say So’ hitmaker.

She said: “I’m obsessed with her. I love her.

“I was able to work with her earlier this year on this song that I want to save for whenever it’s time again, to drop.

“But I love her so much. I love her personality.

“I love what she brings to the table musically.

“She’s just such a breath of fresh air.

“I think she’s brilliant and so talented.

“And she produces, and she does everything herself.

“I love that. It’s fantastic.

“We did this song together towards the end of last year and I love it so much.

“I remember when I first wrote it and sent it to her, she was in the shower and she was like, ‘B**ch, I love this. I’m in the shower.’

“And I was like, ‘Shower. You can call me back.'”
