First Commercial Showing Lactating Breasts Airs This Weekend

TV is about to get real--finally. The first commercial showing lactating breasts airs this weekend. It's for parenthood brand Frida Mom and its #sprayitforward campaign for a new line of products for postpartum breast care.

“We’re lifting the veil on the challenges new moms (and their breasts) face as they DIY their way through lactation woes--from massaging out clogged ducts with an electric toothbrush to slowing the flow with cabbage leaves,” says the commercial’s caption. “It’s time to care for your breasts, not just your baby.”

The commercial is already online and generating a ton of praise. “I could relate all too well! Such an amazing commercial! Thank you for shedding light to BF’ing struggles and showing us we are not alone.”

Another commented, “Omg I absolutely love this – WELL DONE on telling it like it is.”

One that summed up the commercial well said, "I just cried. This is so real. I’m watching this while feeding my baby girl. It has been such a hard but very worth while, journey.”

The ad's broadcast debut is during Sunday night's Golden Globe awards on WEAU TV-13. It'll presumably be edited from the original uncensored version below:

Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker Shot, Dogs Stolen

Lady Gaga's dog walker was shot and two of her three French Bulldogs were stolen Wednesday night in Hollywood, according to TMZ.

Around 10 pm, the dog walker was approached by a gunman and sustained several gunshot wounds in the attack. Two of the three dogs, Gustav and Koji, were then stolen. The other Frenchie ran away from the scene but was later found.

Police are searching for the thief but cannot be certain whether Lady Gaga was specifically targeted; they say French Bulldogs are in high demand and in turn commanding high resale prices. Meanwhile, the dog walker is expected to make a full recovery.

Lady Gaga is reportedly "extremely upset" and is offering a $500,000 reward for the return of her pups, no questions asked.

Tooth Fairy Payouts Reach All-Time High

Some occupations seem to be pandemic-proof. The Tooth Fairy did just fine last year on your contributions. Better than ever, in fact.

According to Delta Dental, kids found an average of $4.70 under their pillows, a 67-cent jump from the year prior.

If it's any consolation, we in the Midwest are the most miserly at an average of $3.66 per tooth. Certainly less painful than Northeast parents dish out: about $5.72 each time.

The survey has been done since 1998, when the going rate was about $1.30.

Disney+ Adds Disclaimer of “Negative Depictions” to “The Muppet Show”

A television mainstay of our youth, The Muppet Show, became available on Disney+ this past Friday. However, what's really getting noticed is what appears before the show: a disclaimer about its content.

It cautions the children's show that ran from 1977 to 1981 "includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures."

"These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now," the disclaimer says. "Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together."

"Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe," it reads. "To learn more about how stories have impacted society visit: www.Disney.com/StoriesMatter."

As yet, Disney hasn't elaborated on exactly what content and/or characters prompted adding the disclaimer. Two of the original 120 episodes have been omitted from the list, though for clearer reasons.

One featuring Brooke Shields is said to have been withheld due to music licensing issues (not uncommon when old shows are re-released). British comedian Chris Langham appeared in the other unavailable episode, likely due to his 2007 conviction for possessing child porn.

According to HollywoodReporter.com, other Disney titles getting an advisory added include AristocatsDumboPeter Pan and Swiss Family Robinson.

Demi Lovato’s Near-Death Overdose and Recovery a YouTube Documentary

When Demi Lovato overdosed in 2018, the seriousness of the episode was obvious. Just how close she came to death was never revealed--until now.

Literally three strokes and a heart attack later, she's filmed a four-part documentary for YouTube called "Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil." In it, Demi details her road to recovery along with the mental and physical after-effects she battles daily.

Through it all, she's grateful for her recovery and maintaining a positive attitude. "Everything had to happen in order for me to learn the lessons that I learned," she told People.com.

"It was a painful journey, and I look back and sometimes I get sad when I think of the pain that I had to endure to overcome what I have, but I don't regret anything." "I'm so proud of the person I am today," she explained. "And I'm so proud that people get to see it in this documentary and I couldn't be more grateful that I had someone by my side."

The show debuts on YouTube March 23.

Janet Jackson “Control” Surges Amid Timberlake Fallout

An unlikely string of events finds new popularity for "Control," Janet Jackson's landmark 1986 album.

It began with the eye-opening "Framing Britney Spears" documentary on Hulu. Between how Justin Timberlake reacted in the wake of splitting with Britney and the tabloids'/media's celebration of him immediately afterward, it's ugly. In 2021, the optics are even worse.

Justin recently posted an apology for his behavior then and for how he avoided fallout from the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show with Janet Jackson. Whether or not you believe the sincerity of his words, there's no stopping Janet's music.

Support for her resonated loudly with sales of "Control," propelling it to the top of Apple’s Top 40 Pop Album Chart--on the album's 35th birthday, no less.

An appreciative Janet tweeted her video thanks, in part, "I'm so thankful for all of you being in my life," she continued. "You're so special to me, and I want to thank all of you for making 'Control' number one once again. After 35 years, never in a million years would I think that this would happen. I really appreciate you, and I love you so, so much. Thank you."

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Share Pregnancy News

For the second time in a week, there's royal baby news. It began with the first child born to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. Sunday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they're expecting their second child.

Baby will join big brother Archie, who will be 2 in May. No word from the couple on how far along she is, but they recently revealed Meghan miscarried last summer. And as you can see from their Instagram announcement, she's already showing.

We also learned Monday the couple will sit down with Oprah for a 90-minute prime-time interview, airing March 7 on CBS.

Despite the physical and emotional distance from the rest of the royals, a rep for Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, and Prince Charles said the whole family is "delighted and [wishes] them well."

Taylor Swift Releases Re-Recorded “Fearless” Album

It was only a matter of time, and Taylor Swift is now re-recording her earlier albums. First up is "Fearless," her 2008 sophomore effort.

Aside from new takes on the album's 20 songs, Taylor is including 6 new songs that were written in the same period, but never recorded. You'll recall this all goes back to her claims that Scooter Braun hasn't given her a fair chance to own her original masters.

But Taylor is clearly taking the high road in the situation, telling "Good Morning America," "It's been the most fun to re-record ones that I feel like I could actually, possibly improve upon the song. That's been a really amazing and fun adventure."

Her new version of "Fearless" will be available April 9, with that album's "Love Story (Taylor's Version)" out now.

Britney Speaks Out About “Framing Britney Spears” Doc

Not so long ago, it was fashionable to bash Britney Spears.

We watched in judgment as she went through a series of relationship fails and questionable choices, and we couldn't get enough. Well, except maybe for Chris Crocker, the "Leave Britney Alone" guy. Little did we realize he had an excellent point.

When “The New York Times Presents Framing Britney Spears” premiered on FX and Hulu last week, it took us back to that time for a not-so-flattering reminder of how she was treated--in and out of the spotlight. Not pretty for her, not pretty for her critics.

And while our social conscience is embracing her again, Britney's drama continues through conservatorship battles with her father. Although she chose not to participate in the documentary, Britney has responded online in dignified tweets.

"I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person," she posted in part.

Another tweet included, “Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!!” We all have so many different bright beautiful lives !!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens!!”
