Lady Gaga has rocked some bold and unique fashion choices–cue meat dress and stuffed animal ensemble. Guess she ran out of ideas and opted to copy Selena’s white belly baring bra and pants outfit.

Fashion-forward stars, like Selena, love to show a little skin. In her ’95 performance, she kept her sparkly jumpsuit ultra-sexy with a belly cutout. When Zendaya Coleman, channeled her inner-Selena, she opted for a more demure chest cutout.

Actress On ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ Calls Out The Fashion Industry For Using BLM As A Trend On Social Media

Fashion consumers are calling out designer brands for their recent displays of Black imagery on their social media pages in light of the Black Lives Matter protests. Of course, representation is appreciated, but a recent post about “Shrill” actress Niccole Thurman is pointing out that such displays should not be treated as Fashion trends.

In a series of tweets shared with her Instagram page, Thurman held the fashion industry accountable.

Calling out the fashion industry for their past exclusion of Black people and people of color, Thurman tweeted a string of emojis, featuring white faces. Sparsely sprinkled into the white faces were a few images of Black emojis and other emojis representing people of color. Thurman captioned the image writing “every Fashion Instagram page looking like.”

Speaking about the fashion industry’s current display of Black models in their social feeds in relation to the global protests that have broken out across the country in response to the recent death of George Floyd. “Feel like this tweet will get me yelled at somehow, so let me just say I’m GLAD to see more beautiful black women in my feed,” Thurman followed up her tweet writing. “It’s just THEY’VE BEEN THERE. THEY’VE *BEEN* BEAUTIFUL. Why’re brands just now seeing them? Don’t think we’re not going to check in on you a month from now.”

Users on Twitter and Instagram were quick to applaud Thurman’s point.

Many people who saw Thurman’s emoji illustration agreed with its sentiment. “Yeees!! And every goddamn photographer (nature photographer aside) I follow probably frantically searched their picture archive for that one shot of a black model they have to post last week, like “Look! I’m good! I take pictures of black people once in a while!!” a user by the name of @LoveCrimeCat wrote in response to the tweet while another remarked that ‘It’s only a matter of time until they go back to regular programming. I hope not but for some of these brands, it’s all performance.’ 

Another user took the time to lambast the fashion industry for “It’s the truth. Half the time the clothes are cut to fit white model better. The only one who really had more models of color on their runways shows was people like Thierry Mugler before he became Manfred.”

In regards to this story, Mitú has reached out to Thurman and is waiting for a comment.

Happy Pride! Here Are Some Thirst Trap Pics Of Pablo Alborán

pabloalboran / Instagram

Pablo Alborán recently came out of the closet and will be the first to tell you that he is happier now. The heartthrob singer came out this month because, pride and we are all here for this. Just look at him.

This is recently out singer Pablo Alborán and he is kind of a dreamboat.

Siempre alerta.. 🐺

A post shared by Pablo Alborán (@pabloalboran) on

Alborán came out this month to mark Pride Month. The handsome singer came out in an emotional Instagram post saying that he is a little bit happier after coming out. It is probably safe to say that gay men around the world are happier to know that he is part of the community. Like, a handsome man who reads poetry might be cliché but that is so fine.

He is a musician so he can play you to sleep at night.

Who needs a white noise machine when you have this handsome man serenading you? Just picture it for a second. You come home from a long day at work. After some dinner, you lie on the couch and relax as Alborán slowly serenades you with his guitar. What a way to end a long day at work.

Let’s take a moment to talk about his legs in those shorts.

That might be shallow but there is something about men in short shorts, right? Clearly Alborán offers so much more than just his physical appearance. However, he does look good in his short shorts.

A man who cooks is a man you want around.

Okay. You have our attention. Cooking is one of the most caring things people can do. It is a special gift that they are handcrafting for you to enjoy and nourish your body.

Lastly, he is not afraid of some heavy lifting and that’s refreshing.

Some times you need things done but physically can’t (or don’t want to). Alborán seems willing and ready to do those chores. It’s the little things, like moving chairs across the room that really make things special.

Who are you currently crushing over?
