Dear Stefano Gabbana, I'm A Fashion Addict, But I Will Never Support Dolce & Gabbana Again

Bullying is never OK, no matter how famous you are.

Dear Stefano Gabbana, I'm A Fashion Addict, But I Will Never Support Dolce & Gabbana Again

Dear Stefano Gabbana,

As someone who is a self-proclaimed fashion enthusiast, I can name quite a few designers and labels that I not only admire but also rock their products almost daily.

While I don't consider myself picky since I feel that most of the designs I see are beautiful, I do have some standards for who I support. Those standards include actual talent, lack of pettiness, respect for others, nothing that's just a desperate plea for attention, and basic understanding that there's nothing good that comes from rudeness and bullying.

Unfortunately, I have recently realized that your brand, Dolce & Gabbana, despite having nice designs, simply just does not make the cut. Here's why I have a problem.

One would think that with success, leaving hate comments on social media to get attention wouldn't really be necessary, but apparently, you see things differently.

What you have said towards not only Selena Gomez, but also other celebrities, such as Miley Cyrus, is absolutely unacceptable and unprofessional. As someone so famous, you should be able to not only be able to handle the spotlight with maturity, but also with professionalism and respect for others.

However, even after so long, you have proven yourself to be incapable of not only behaving like a professional but also unable to be a decent human being.

Recently, you have left a comment on a picture of Selena Gomez that translates to "She's so ugly!" from Italian. Not only were several of Selena's fans enraged, but also many other bystanders and celebrities.

Selena Gomez regularly wears Dolce & Gabbana apparel and clearly has supported you. She is also considered beautiful by many people all over the world. For these reasons, it is unknown why Stefano Gabbana decided to randomly hate on someone who not only wears his designs but is also an advocate for kindness.

Furthermore, when people try to defend her, your responses are blatantly rude and disgusting, for example, you posted a graphic picture on Instagram showing your haters what to do with their opinions, complete with a step by step diagram.

You have made it clear that you do not care about your public image and how it's affected by your horrible comments. Unsurprisingly, you also have 'beef' with Miley Cyrus (who defended Selena Gomez after the incident) and her younger brother, Braison.

Due to political differences between you and Braison in a post that Miley wrote about how proud she was of her brother, you overreacted and insulted him, saying you'd never work with him again.

To sum it up, your behavior can be summed up as immature, unprofessional, inappropriate, and overall just unacceptable.

You've been in the fashion industry a long time, and yes, you are successful, but it really doesn't take a genius to realize that just because you are successful, it does not give you the right to be a horrible person.

I am truly sorry that after years in the spotlight, you still are clueless as to how to handle your popularity the right way. So thanks for making your designs, but I think I'll stick to designers who deserve respect and to be promoted.


Someone who knows bullying is never OK.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
