Filed under: RihannaHealthCharityPrince HarryTravel

Prince Harry and Rihanna

Rihanna and Prince Harry are making an effort to destigmatize getting tested for HIV.

In honor of World AIDS Day, the Needed Me songstress and the royal joined forces once again in RiRi's native Barbados to address the importance of combating the virus to prevent its spread — something near and dear to both of their hearts.

On Thursday, the public figures sat side-by-side as they both got blood drawn at a local drop-in center in Bridgetown (above).

Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli Thwarted By High School Students — They Figured Out How To Make His $750 Drug For Just $2!!!

no title

Science triumphs over greed! Love it!

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli has made a name for himself as a pop culture heel over the past year, doing things like threatening to break the only copy of Wu Tang's unique album.

But don't forget the truly heinous reason we know him at all — because he bought the rights to Daraprim and raised the price 5500% from $13.50 to $750 per dose.

Daraprim, chemically known as pyrimethamine, is used to treat malaria and toxoplasmosis in AIDS patients, and is named on the World Health Organization's list of essential medicines.

And this tool tried to gouge the price to make himself a profit off of people in need.

However, a group of Australian high school students have put a crimp in his medicinal monopoly plans; they figured out how to

Jimmy Kimmel Sings With Bono, Julia Roberts, Kristen Bell, Channing Tatum, & MORE During Epic AIDS Awareness Episode! Watch!

no title

Like most of us, Jimmy Kimmel has a pretty good feeling this country is going to hell.

But thanks to a star-studded musical PSA, we can still save ourselves from the fiery pits of the underworld… by helping people with AIDS!

On Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night host teamed up with Bono's (RED) campaign for the second year in a row to raise awareness and money to help fight AIDS, and he assembled an all-star lineup of A-listers to help get out the message!

A tuxedo-clad Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum, Kristen Bell, and Neil Patrick Harris joined Kimmel in singing a special song for the charity episode which also featured Halsey, DJ Khaled, and The Killers' Brandon Flowers.

The faux-Christmas tune was chock-full of bits, including Channing and NPH silently tap dancing on a rug so no one could hear and Bono himself playing the role of Satan as he emerged from a hellish bathtub.

It's hard to imagine hell not being a bunch of celebrities singing self-aware songs about how they should have helped the less fortunate more! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out the musical moment (below) to see how you can avoid burning in hell!

Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinuteInspirationHealth

We can't wait to see this!

Salim Gauwloos — better known as Slam — was one of the dancers on Madonna's Blond Ambition world tour back in 1991, and he even infamously danced in her iconic video for Vogue and starred in her Truth Or Dare documentary that year.

But he saved the juiciest part of the story for 2016!

The dancer, now 25 years removed from his iconic work with the Queen of Pop, is taking part in a brand new documentary called Strike A Pose that is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, and in it, he's ready to discuss his time with Madonna, his experiences as a backup dancer, and — surprisingly — how he went through that entire tour while HIV positive!

As we would later learn, Slam was one of three dancers on Madonna's tour — the other two being Carlton Wilborn and Gabriel Trupin — who was living with HIV during the 1991 tour and documentary shoot.

And now, Slam is opening up about that experience for the very first time!

While promoting the documentary, Slam told POZ about his HIV diagnosis, which he says he contracted four years before dancing with Madge:

Nancy Reagan Knew About Her 17-Year-Old Daughter's Affair With A Teacher & Didn't Say Anything! Sounds About Right…

no title

Why are we not surprised?

We were all totally heartbroken early last week when it was reported that former First Lady Nancy Reagan had passed away at the age of 94 due to congestive heart failure.

The actress-turned-politician's wife wasn't exactly known for encouraging public discourse when it came to taboo topics, which is why her daughter's latest claims aren't exactly shocking.

Apparently, back in the mid-1960s, a 17-year-old Patti Davis had an affair with her teacher… and it turns out that Nancy knew about it all along and didn't say a thing!

Patti, now 63 years old, wrote a letter in her mom's honor for the March 21 issue of TIME where she recounted the affair, saying:

Hillary Clinton Apologizes For Mistakenly Praising Nancy Reagan's 'AIDS Activism'

Filed under: Oops!PolitikHillary ClintonTwitterVogueLGBT

This is definitely NOT her best moment!

On Friday, during MSNBC's televised funeral for former first lady Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton spoke to reporters about the role the 94-year-old played during the AIDS epidemic in the 80s.

The presidential candidate said:

"It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about HIV/AIDS back in the 1980s. And because of both President and Mrs. Reagan — in particular Mrs. Reagan — we started a national conversation. When before nobody would talk about it, nobody wanted to do anything about it, and that too is something that I really appreciate with her very effective, low key advocacy but it penetrated the public conscious and people began to say, 'Hey, we have to do something about this too.'"

The only problem? Ronald Reagan's wife never did any of that. In fact, she did the opposite.

According to Teen Vogue, Reagan turned her back to the LGBT community as millions suffered from the illness.

In 2003, Michael Cover — an executive at a groundbreaking AIDS health-care organization in Washington — argued
