CELEB NEWS: Michael Buble: My son's birth wasn't 'life-changing.'

1. Michael Buble talks candidly about meeting his son for the first time.

Canadian crooner Michael Buble became a dad on August 27 and has spoken candidly about the moment he met his son Noah for the first time.

“I didn’t have that overwhelming feeling of love. I’m being honest with you,” the singer said last week on The Social, a Canadian talk show, according to People.

“I’d heard all of these stories about how this moment was life-changing, but it wasn’t like that for me. I was nervous for my wife, and I was happy that he was healthy … but, that day, it was like meeting a stranger.”

It’s not a strange phenomenon, with the US Today reporting “about a third of new parents say they didn’t feel immediate joy when they first saw their newborn.”

For Bublé, it all hit him a swift day later.

“That next night (after the baby was born), it really clicked,” he told The Social. “I was looking at him and all of a sudden, I got it… I sing to him all day and all night. When he’s crying with somebody else and I hold him and I sing to him, he just stops. It’s really cool.”

“They both want kids, it’s one of the reasons they got a bigger place, in a neighborhood that you can raise a family,” the source explained. “They both couldn’t be more excited.”

5. Controversial Diesel campaign features a tattooed woman wearing a denim niqab.

What do a denim niqab and tattoos have in common?

Lady Gaga’s former-stylist Nicola Formichetti.

Formichetti is no stranger to creating controversy and that’s just what he’s done in his new role as the creative director of fashion label Diesel.

The company has released the “I am not what I appear to be” ad featuring a tattooed woman wearing a denim niqab as part of their new Diesel Reboot campaign, which attempts to “baptize a new era of energy, bravery, and bold iconography at Diesel.”

Formichetti relied on Tumblr and word of mouth to cast the subjects of the campaign as he wanted it to be about “real people” wearing the clothes.

“I wanted to find people who reflected the diversity of the creative community today and not just the typical model.”

I wanted the campaign to showcase a variety of characters, people who are beautiful in their own unique way,” said Formichetti.

Not surprisingly the ad hasn’t been well recieved.

In an article for MTV Desi, Shruti Parekh says, “On the most basic level, the ad appropriates the burqa and puts it on a white woman in a socio-political context rife with Islamophobia and attacks on the Muslim world.”

“Muslim women who wear the burqa in the West have had to deal with everything from discriminatory banning laws in Europe to racist slurs and hate crimes.

“Meanwhile, this white woman who wears her Diesel burqa bears none of the hate or loaded connotations that Muslim women bear on the regular… This level of cultural appropriation is more than a disrespectful “borrowing of culture,” it is a nasty flaunting of privilege.”
