Stephanie Soo accuses Nikocado Avocado of manipulation and bullying



Summary:
- Stephanie and Nik are both Mukbang-ers on Youtube. They've had minor drama in the past related to shookbang but have since move passed it. Stephanie also had some drama with another mukbang Youtuber named Veronica Wang
- He came out to LA with Zach Choi and Stephanie went out to dinner with them. She says this first night was completely normal, and they opened up to each other about some personal information such as past drama and her experience with sexual assault. It happened in her home and because of this she has a security system. Nik texts her more questions about what kind of security system she has.
- The next day they filmed 2 collab videos for each of their channels. Off camera Nik keeps pushing for Stephanie to talk about Veronica in his video ~to spill tea~. Stephanie says she doesn't want to. On camera, Nik brings it up anyway multiple times and gets agitated when Stephanie doesn't talk about it.
- Stephanie felt uncomfortable but wasn't sure how to get out of the situation because she had told Nik personal information and knows his tendency to use it against people and she wanted to be professional and finish the videos.
- Stephanie began to have extreme anxiety about the situation because she felt so uncomfortable around Nik and was beginning to question her own words, wondering if she did give Nik permission to talk about it. She includes footage of her in her home crying and tossing and turning all night. She sends a text to Nik and Zach saying she doesn't want to film the 3rd video.
- She includes screen shots of them texting. She apologizes multiple times for cancelling and if she miscommunicated her boundaries. Nik reaches out to her in private message and calls her. While this was happening he was posting on instagram and snapchat 'I have some tea, I want to make an expose video on inconsiderate people'. He also began to make a meme out of her text to him that he joked about with other mukbang friends.
- Stephanie checks her security cameras from when Nik visited for a couple hours to film and there was only one time he was alone, when she went to the bathroom. During that time he took pictures of her house and was looking up at the room like he was looking at the security cameras. He never asked or told her he did this.
- Discusses a deleted video of Nik minimizing sexual assault and saying things like 'the little Me Too movement'.

Emilia Clarke banned fan selfies after she was approached during panic attack

https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/s8-ep-11-emilia-clarke/id1305228910?i=1000459933489

Emilia has revealed that she banned selfies, after one fan asked for one while she was having a panic attack. “I was genuinely walking through an airport and I suddenly started  having what I can only believe to be a panic attack brought on by  complete exhaustion,  I was on my own, I was on the  phone to my mum saying, I feel like I can’t breathe, I don’t know  what’s going on. I’m there and the tears are coming out. I’m crying and  crying, this guy’s like, ‘Can I get a selfie?’ And I was like, ‘I can’t  breathe, I’m really sorry. Just having a minute.’ It was after a few  moments like that where I was like, ‘I don’t know how to do this.'

Instead, she now says she offers to sign things, saying that it turns  into a nicer experience for both her and the fans : ‘So I started to say,  I’m not going to take a photo but I will sign something, When you do that you have to have an interaction with that  person, as opposed to someone just going, "Oh hi, give us a selfie,  goodbye". It turns into, “Right, what’s your name? Who am I making it out to? Then you have a chat and you’re actually having a truthful  human to human thing, as opposed to it being this other thing that  probably isn’t nice for them and isn’t that nice for you.’

Emilia acknowledged that although she signed up for fame, she's “been trying to navigate  how I can interact with fans without feeling like my soul is completely empty. Because they don’t really want to talk to you. When you do a signing thing, you can actually look into their eyes and have a proper real human thing,”

Céline Dion partners with Instagram for an "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" lookbook



The title says it all! From Chinatown Market to Oscar De La Renta, Céline recreates her 1996 video "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" but with looks now available via Instagram Shopping, a service the platform has been incrementally rolling out since March.

“I love Celine and thought the video concept was hysterical and fun,” says video stylist Mel Ottenberg. “I approached the styling by looking at fashion on Instagram and seeing what gave me the ’90s/’00s throwback vibe: a denim bustier from Revolve gave me a Britney/Justin 2000 denim feel. White Michael Kors sunglasses gave me Mary J. Blige’s 1995 Share My World album cover. A black Good American catsuit gave me the 1990 ‘Justify My Love’ video [from Madonna]. an Adam Selman snakeskin legging and sports bra gave me all sorts of era feelings. And we just went with it.”

Chris Hemsworth Slams Reports He Hired Water Trucks for Garden Amid Australia Drought




Chris Hemsworth is slamming reports about him amid the bushfire and drought crisis in Australia.

There has been reports stating that Chris has hired a “a fleet of water trucks” to water their “$1 million garden” at their Australian home amidst a bushfire and drought crisis. The reports came from the Daily Mail and other Australian sites.

Chris took to Instagram to deny the claims.

His statement: “This is a complete lie. Normally I wouldn’t respond to false articles like this but it bothers me a lot. The water truck was purely for drinking water because like everyone in the region who is not connected to town water we have run out of potable water due to the drought.

NONE of my garden is fed by drinking water. Thanks for your concern #dailymail and thanks for adding more distress to an already brutal situation the whole country is dealing with. Merry Xmas.”
