Pharrell Appropriates Native American Culture & Fans Are "#NotHappy"! Is His Lackluster Apology Enough To Earn Your Forgiveness??

Don't.

That's the free advice we're giving every celebrity contemplating the appropriation of anyone else's culture — whether it be for a photo shoot, a music video, a live performance, or even just a Halloween party you thought would be papparazi-free.

Why would you EVER even do it??? At best you fly under the radar and no one comments on your awkward decision or lame joke. At worst you offend the ENTIRE WORLD!

So, again, just don't.

Unfortunately, neither Pharrell nor the editors of Elle asked our opinion before slapping a Native American headdress on the Get Lucky megastar and putting the offensive picture smack-dab on the cover of their super popular fashion magazine!

Predictably, the world is OUTRAGED by their awful and totally insensitive choice of images.

In fact, backlash got so bad that even the Happy singer's own fans have tweeted disappointed messages at him with the hashtag "#NotHappy."

Here are just a few of the tweets that expressed outrage:

Bad News For Gamblers…Sleep Deprivation Encourages BAD Decisions

Filed under: HealthWellnessScience!

Sleep Deprivation risky decisions

A new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience is bad news for anyone making important decisions without a lot of sleep, like, you know, late night gamblers.

Duke University researchers assessed the effects of sleep deprivation on 29 adult volunteers.

They took part in several economic decision-making tasks in the morning after a normal night of sleep and again one morning after a night of sleep deprivation. Guess what?

Using MRI scans to study brain activity, researchers found that those suffering from lack of sleep had increased activity in regions of the brain that assess positive outcomes and decreased activity in regions that process negative outcomes.

That means, lack of sleep can cause increased confidence to make bad decisions without considering the consequences.

This is especially dangerous to late night gamblers, as the lead author of the study Vinod Venkatraman explains:

“Late-night gamblers are fighting more than just the unfavorable odds of gambling machines; they are fighting a sleep-deprived brain’s tendency to implicitly seek gains while discounting the impact of potential losses. Countermeasures that combat fatigue and improve alertness may be inadequate for overcoming these decision biases.”

If you're heading to the casino to make some major bets, do not undervalue the importance of a good night's sleep!
