Katy Perry’s shoes are being pulled from shelves at Dillard’s and Walmart for resembling blackface. The shoe in question— “Rue Face Slip On Loafers”—come with two eyes, a nose and red lips in two different colors: beige and black. The black one is the problem as it appears to resemble blackface make-up.
Katy has received lots of backlash over the design, while sources close to the singer say the shoes were never intended to be offensive. Another source told TMZ that “in order to be respectful and sensitive the team is in the process of pulling the shoes.”
Jennifer Aniston—who turns 50 today—celebrated her birthday with a big bash over the weekend. While many celebs were spotted, such as Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow and the Clooneys, one guest in particular really stood out. According to People, heads turned when Jenn’s ex-husband Brad Pitt casually strolled into the shindig.
The exes were married for 5 years, before allegations of cheating (which were mostly true) led to a divorce. Brad went on to marry Angelina Jolie (now divorced) and Jenn married Justin Theroux (also now divorced).
Possible reconciliation is in the works?
