During the 2019 Grammy Awards, viewers got a sneak peek of the live-action remake of Disney’s classic animated movie, “Aladdin.” From the first look at the film, revealed on the cover of Entertainment Weekly earlier this year, actor Will Smith portrayed Genie while looking fairly human. His hair was in a long ponytail, accompanied by a very long goatee, but being that it was similar to the animation, this look was expected.

That’s the burning question that has been causing quite a political debate ever since the men’s grooming company, Gillette, released an ad that covers a plethora of cultural issues. Beauty, clothing and product companies have almost always marketed to one gender so the framework of this controversy is understandable. Still, history shows that imposing certain “standards” is just a marketing technique and companies will do whatever it takes to sell their products, even if that means being “too political.”

There are many things that make cooking a challenge during the winter. Whether we just want to stay indoors, watch a movie and order out, or are just too lazy to cook, it's a struggle to find the inspiration and motivation.

The newest way to get turned on is something quite out of the ordinary: solely through sound. The crisp crunch of someone eating tangy pickles out of a jar or the soft vibration of a whisper through a microphone are just a few examples of the sensory-porn that’s taking over the internet.

Compilations of people tapping their long, manicured nails on a hard surface or crushing cubes of soap, for example, have garnered millions of views.
