More than 260,000 people have signed an online petition to shutdown Paris Jackson’s new movie.

The independent drama Habit sees the 22-year-old play an incarnation of the Christian holy figure, alongside co-stars Bella Thorne and musicians Gavin Rossdale, Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart.

Religious groups have denounced the film as “Christianophobic garbage”, and the petition has attracted more than 266,000 signatures.

According to a plot synopsis, former Disney Channel star Bella will play a party girl “with a Jesus fetish” who gets mixed up in a violent drug deal, and masquerades as a nun to avoid repercussions.

It also says Paris’ “gender-bending take on the religious figure” will include “a nose ring, tousled waves and a traditional robe”.

The petition on Change.org names Warner Bros. and Lionsgate studios as its targets, and alleges that Paris will be playing the role of a “lesbian Jesus” – a claim that has not been confirmed.

“A new blasphemous Hollywood film is predicted to come out soon depicting Jesus as a lesbian woman,” the petition states. “Distributors haven’t picked it up as of yet, so let’s please spread awareness and wake people up to the Christianophobic garbage that is spread nowadays.”

The project, which was announced back in April, previously sparked an online petition from the U.S. organisation One Million Moms, which claimed the film was “sacrilegious and “ridicules people of faith”.

Bella Thorne is the new brand ambassador for unisex hemp clothing line Drihp.

The 22-year-old wants to support the affordable and sustainable capsule collection, which features tank tops, T-shirts and underwear made in Los Angeles from a blend of hemp and recycled materials.

“The fashion part of the brand is just our foot into the door,” Bella told WWD. “It’s just our way of showing people that hemp is actually positive, besides just telling them that it is. What we’re really trying to do is spread awareness.

“We want to make people understand hemp by having them feel a T-shirt and know that the T-shirt took 1/20th of the water (to make compared to cotton). Everybody needs to get on this train and ride it with us.”

Drihp was founded by Luke Dandrea, and he shared his excitement about teaming up with Bella.

Influencers Jay Alvarrez and Rachel Cook also star in the ads.

“I turned to Bella, because she has an edge about her,” he explained. “She has fought for her name and so has hemp. She bleeds authenticity. She’s somebody with a voice with weight.”

Future plans for the clothing line include footwear, beach towels and environmentally-friendly drinking straws, and Bella is excited to be partnering with the earth friendly brand.

“We really need to be educating people who are closed off to it, people who put hemp and cannabis in the same boat, which they’re not,” she continued. “How do we get those people to change?”

Bella Thorne stopped using dye and extensions in order to help her natural hair grow.

The Midnight Sun actress, who is a natural blonde but is best known as a redhead, is quite the hair chameleon, always experimenting with different colours, styles, and hair extensions.

However, after she cut her hair short for a movie she filmed last year, Bella struggled to grow it back, so she ditched the bleach, heated styling tools, and extensions so her hair would get long and healthy.

“In August of last year, my hair was cut up to my neck and shoulders for a movie…and it seemed like it wasn’t growing back…but now look how long it is!! I just did bleachless, heatless, and most importantly extensionless!!” she wrote in the caption besides an Instagram video which showed her admiring her locks while wet and naked following a shower.

She continued to express pride in her long natural hair, which now reaches the middle of her back, and explained that it took her a long time to feel confident without extensions.

“I have wanted my hair to grow back long again, ever since I was on (TV show) shake it (Shake It Up) they cut it real short one day,” Bella shared. “And then put in extensions to match it back to its original length…it took me a very long time to not feel insecure without exts or heat or whatever…but now look at how long it is. I’m so proud (sic).”

The 22-year-old added that the bottom of her hair is currently green because she has had to dye it for an upcoming film role.

Slick Woods attended the Puma x Balmain clothing launch on Thursday, shortly after it was revealed she was battling melanoma cancer.

The 23-year-old model, real name Simone Thompson, casually announced that she was undergoing chemotherapy on Instagram on Wednesday and reporters at The Shade Room subsequently claimed she had told them she was suffering from stage three melanoma cancer.

And Slick proved that she wasn’t letting her health battle get her down when she made a public appearance at the launch of fellow model Cara Delevingne’s clothing collaboration with Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing and sportswear giant Puma at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

Dressed in black trousers, a baseball cap, sneakers and a denim jacket, she styled the look in an interesting way by securing the bottom buttonhole to the top button, exposing her shoulder, midriff, and green mesh vest top.

The launch was also attended by models Alessandra Ambrosio and Shanina Shaik and stars including Amber Heard, Eva Longoria, Bella Thorne, Machine Gun Kelly, and G-Eazy, who all sported pieces from the boxing-inspired collection.

The Savage x Fenty model referred to her medical treatment when she shared a photo of herself sticking out her tongue while out with her boyfriend Micky Munday and some friends.

“How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it #atleastimalreadybald,” she wrote in the caption.

As fans expressed their shock at the news and sent their well wishes, Slick shared a picture of a pouting child and urged her followers to “stop treating me like a victim”.

Slick gave birth to a son named Saphir, who she shares with model Adonis Bosso, shortly after walking the Savage X Fenty show in September 2018.

Bella Thorne: ‘I never wear make-up unless I’m getting paid for it’

Bella Thorne only wears make-up when she’s working.

The Blended star has given an interview to The Associated Press to promote her debut poetry collection Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray and insisted that she doesn’t wear make-up unless she’s working because she refuses to edit herself for the public.

“Seriously, I’m an open book. I’m not acting here. Like, legit, I never wear make-up unless I’m getting paid for it or I’m doing press. I literally show every aspect of me. I refuse to edit anything of myself,” the 21-year-old said.

The Midnight Sun actress has been very candid with her fans about her battles with acne in the past, and when she had a bad skin day back in 2016, she shared a selfie and told her followers she was owning her complexion, even though she sometimes feels self-conscious about her appearance.

“I’m very self-conscious and constantly feeling bad about myself. BUT I shouldn’t feel bad. It is normal to have acne,” she wrote on Instagram. “It’s only our society and social media outlets like this one that tells us we have to have ‘perfect skin’ to be considered socially acceptable. I’m here to tell you rn (right now) F**K THAT. I’m going to show my skin for what is it and own it.”

And because of her skin issues, Bella is careful about the products she uses, and she finds it best to take charge of her own appearance instead of using make-up artists.

“The change in my skin has caused me to only ever do my own make-up, including on set, which is always a fun thing for me to get in contractually,” she said in a beauty tutorial for Vogue.com in June. “When I wear make-up, I’m wearing Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer because I don’t like, you know, heavy foundation or anything like that. My skin can’t breathe, so I can’t wear that.”

Bella Thorne insists on doing her own make-up for film and TV appearances.

The Midnight Sun actress has long been open about her struggles with cystic acne and other skin conditions and is now working with an expert to keep her complexion looking flawless.

However, Bella is very careful about the products she uses on her face and has now shared that she finds it best to take charge of her own appearance.

“The change in my skin has caused me to only ever do my own make-up, including on set, which is always a fun thing for me to get in contractually,” she said in a beauty tutorial for Vogue.com. “When I wear make-up, I’m wearing Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer because I don’t like, you know, heavy foundation or anything like that. My skin can’t breathe, so I can’t wear that.”

Bella went on to explain that she tries to keep her cosmetics to a minimum, simply grooms her eyebrows, filling them in with a dark brown pencil, and dabs on some of Kryolan’s Dermacolor Camouflage Creme to conceal. She also likes to spritz on some Evian Spray if she is wearing make-up all day.

“I don’t use powder very often. I’ll do like a light dusting in the morning (across the top of my face) of translucent, and that’s it pretty much throughout the day. Because if you pack on powder and you’re on set 16 to 18 hours a day, your face feels disgusting. You’re definitely going to get a breakout, and on camera, it just looks thicker,” the 21-year-old commented.

Elsewhere, Bella shared some of her favourite products, such as Dior 5 Couleurs Wild Earth Limited Edition Palette in 696 Sienna, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deep End, Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Perlina, and NARS’ Orgasm Blush.

And she also divulged her top tip for covering blemishes.

“People’s biggest mistake is going this way (swipe) covering acne, you have to dot and pat. If you swipe it, it will keep swiping. You’ll keep swiping, and that is why you cannot add enough thickness to cover your acne because it doesn’t work that way,” she added.

Bella Thorne advises against ‘overwashing’ acne-prone skin

Bella Thorne has learned how to properly care for her skin after a lengthy struggle with acne.

The 21-year-old now embraces her imperfections, refusing to use too many products on her face after discovering less is more.

“I don’t like the whole perfection look,” she said in a beauty tutorial for Vogue.com. “That just never works for me. My skin has been a long time in the works. I don’t even know how many years I’ve had cystic acne, but it started off as dermatitis, and then I tried everything you can think of.”

One crucial step she has learned to incorporate into her beauty routine is skipping washing her face in the morning.

“There’s something called overwashing your face, and when I had really bad acne, that was one of the things I stopped, and it actually helped my skin,” the actress insisted. “Not that I’m saying, ‘You don’t have to wash your face in the morning,’ it’s just something that works for me.”

As for the simple aspects of her regimen, the Midnight Sun star relies on Kryolan’s Dermacolor Camouflage Creme, a product mostly used on scars.

“It’s known mostly for scar victims,” she said of the concealer. “I know it sounds crazy, but it doesn’t break out my skin.”

Her other go-to items include Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in bright teal Deep End, Stila’s Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in glittery Perlina, Nars’s regular Orgasm Blush and Pat McGrath Labs’s MatteTrance Lipstick.

Bella Thorne has found an unlikely hair dye trick, using beer as part of her colour transformation process.

The actress took to Instagram on Monday (18Mar19) to share a video of her shocking hair routine, in which a friend pours a cup of beer over her tresses.

“For everyone harassing yes it’s beer,” she wrote alongside the footage. “It naturally lightens ur hair and people say it’s good for u my next film my hair has to be hunny blonde, saving me a trip to the salon in my book I talk about the tips and tricks the ups and downs and the very low lows. Order the book right now and I might hand deliver u a case of beer.”

The 21 year old is referring to her upcoming book The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: A Mental Disarray – a collection of poems chronicling her personal struggles.

Many fans on the social media site backed up Thorne’s beer dye claims.

“I use beer as a rinse in the shower sometimes if I have any left undrunk,” one fan wrote. “It makes your hair super shiny!”

A commenter added, “That is a known fact it is good for hair. Makes it shine too. This has been around forever.”

“It absolutely does! And it’s actually good for your hair!!” another follower posted.

Thorne’s post comes on the heels of her jaw-dropping appearance at the premiere of Motley Crue biopic The Dirt in Los Angeles on Monday night (18Mar19). The star wowed in a curve-hugging black dress lined with shimmering glitter. Appearing alongside musician boyfriend Mod Son during the event, she documented the evening on Instagram, writing: “We both clean up nice,” alongside an image of the pair.

Christie Brinkley walked the runway with her daughter Sailor Cook at Elie Tahari’s 45th anniversary show on Thursday night (07Feb19).

The veteran supermodel and her youngest child both strutted their stuff at designer Tahari’s fall/winter 2019 presentation held as part of New York Fashion Week, with the likes of Laverne Cox and Bella Thorne in attendance.

At one point, Christie and Sailor crossed paths on the catwalk and gave each other a quick high five, with the 65-year-old posting the moment on her Instagram page.

“Sailor and me on the same runway! We’re on a HIGH…Five. Thank you @elietahari for the honour of walking in your 45th-anniversary show!” she captioned the footage. “Congratulations on such an achievement. I never anticipated such a warm welcome and it really touched me! Sailor, may this be the start of an amazing adventure in this crazy wonderful industry for you it was a joy to share the runway with you!”

In the show, Sailor wore two looks, including a black ensemble pulled together with a wide belt and a dark blue velvet dress with beading on the shoulders, while her mother closed out the spectacle in an emerald green velvet suit with matching scarf.

Taking to Instagram to upload some photos, Sailor, 20, wrote along the shots, “Thank you @elietaharifor having me and my mama walk your runway today. Such an honour! And such a fun time!!”

In announcing his plans for the 45th anniversary show, Tehari explained that he was thrilled to cast the mother-daughter duo, as it would mark the first time they have walked the runway together.

“The Elie Tahari brand has always been for every woman, and that is why I’m so excited about having Christie and Sailor walk in our show because Christie is timeless, and Sailor represents the cool, on-the-go woman, who also wears our clothes,” he recently told Page Six. “It is important for me to make clothes for women of all types, inclusive of any age.”

Suki Waterhouse has set the record straight over an accidental shooting on the set of her latest film.

The British actress is currently promoting Assassination Nation, a black comedy written and directed by Sam Levinson, with the project also starring Odessa Young, Bill Skarsgard, Hari Nef, Bella Thorne and Joel McHale.

At the movie’s New York premiere on Tuesday night (18Sep18), Suki told a reporter from the New York Post’s Page Six that she had accidentally shot and “hurt” somebody while shooting the flick – but she’s since clarified what happened.

“I’ve just woken up and seen some articles about me ‘shooting’ someone on the set of Assassination Nation,” she wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night. “Would like to clarify I did not shoot anybody! A bullet ricocheted off the target during practice and grazed my instructors hand, which is very rare but does happen (sic).”

In her initial conversation about the accident, Suki also revealed that she and her castmates had not been given “extensive firearms training” and stated that she had “maybe an hour” of preparation time before she began filming.

However, in her Twitter messages, she commented that the producers of Assassination Nation had abided by strict safety guidelines throughout the shoot.

“Safety was paramount throughout filming and I would hate for this story to undermine the work of the people who looked after us so well,” the 26-year-old added.

The star did not elaborate on who exactly the bullet hit, while studio representatives have not yet shared any further information about the incident.

Assassination Nation, which tells the story of four girls who are targeted in a malicious data hack, was filmed in early 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The movie hits cinemas from Friday (21Sep18).
