The Best Deodorant I’ve Ever Used

If there's one thing men's deodorants have in common right now, it's that they all try to out-man one another with scents you'd associate with Paul Bunyan-y masculinity. Unfortunately, they all just smell like chemicals, and more often than not, don't actually make you feel clean — which is a crappy quality for something that takes up precious space in your Dopp kit.

That's why we hope

10 Ways I’ve Put Boundaries to Use

One of the benefits of my divorce last year was realizing that I am weak on boundaries. I could go so far as to say I didn’t have any. After twelve years of trying to make the marriage work I was pretty much all over the map with my feelings and actions. I’ve since regrouped and for the first time have a clear understanding of my emotions and how to deal with them. Here is what I’ve learned so far:

  1. I recently broke up with my boyfriend. Even though he is a wonderful person, he wasn’t wonderful for me. It took me over a year to come to that conclusion, but I did it.
  2. I only visit my parents when I know I’m centered enough to handle it. My father is an alcoholic and my mother has dementia. My three siblings and I have a much different approach on how we cope. One visits regularly, one actually takes care of them, and the other is still trying for the relationship we all would have liked growing up. I’ve learned it does me more harm than good when I’m not in the right place to be present with them. I dread the month before Christmas when all three call repeatedly insisting I be there for holidays. They won’t take no for an answer!
  3. I say no to my friends when they request something I can’t do. Typically this involves watching their children. There was one time I said yes when I shouldn’t have and I had to call my friend to come get her son while the other boy my son was playing with could stay. She was mad at me for months and it almost cost the friendship.
  4. I ask my children what they’re feeling and have them make their own conclusions on what action they should take. This is a life lesson. It’s important to me that they work things out on their own and learn, understand and trust their feelings. One benefit of encouraging independent thinking is that I’m showing them the respect I hope they carry with them as they grow older.
  5. I let go of clients that are causing me trouble and/or paying late. This is hard to do because it’s ingrained in my business background that “the customer is always right.” I’ve come to learn that they may or may not be right, but it’s not always right for me. If it’s not working, get rid of it.
  6. I calmly explain to my siblings that their well intended advice can sometimes sound more like criticism and that I would let them know when I need their feedback. Not long ago I would have more than likely just let it go and waited until the next family gathering before I talked to them. They’re family, I’ll still see them so what difference does it make? But then I realized they’re great to practice my new skills on for just that reason. They’re not going anywhere!
  7. I stay with a schedule as best I can to help me stay focused and make the most of my work time. Likewise, it helps my two boys to respect my time and not interrupt. They know that when I’m done I’ll be available to them.
  8. I ask myself what I’m feeling when my boyfriend does something that upsets me and then express that feeling. Instead of getting emotional or blaming him, I involve him by asking what he thinks can be done so that we can come to a solution together. This puts the relationship first and helps it grow.
  9. I make time for myself everyday. Perhaps this is the biggest incentive to stay self-employed. Truth is I’m terrified of having to go back to a full time job that isn’t flexible with my schedule. I meditate in the morning, write in my journal and exercise daily. Some afternoons I even nap. I don’t know many work environments that encourage that!
  10. I ask for help when I need it. For me, the ultimate challenge! I pride myself on being independent. I’m self-employed after all. One of my favorite things about what I do is that all the information I need is right at my fingertips on the internet. But I need a human connection too and people generally love to help and give advice. And it gives me a chance to show gratitude, of which I can’t do enough.

I’m A Man, And I’ve Spent My Life Ashamed Of My Body

It was the summer of 1999. I went to the mall with my friend Derek, and we ran into one of his friends at Spencer’s Gifts. I browsed the store while they talked. Then I heard Derek’s friend ask, “Is that your sister?” 

He was referring to me.

I was 11 years old. I had long hair because I loved pro wrestling at that time, and I was wearing a basketball jersey because it was my favorite sport. My long hair might have confused him, but I think it was the shirt. It emphasized my chest, and what Derek’s friend might have thought were budding breasts.

That’s when I realized I was fat. It’s my earliest memory of feeling that way, and I don’t have a single memory since that day of feeling comfortable and confident in my body.

My life has been a seesaw of losing weight, then gaining it back and realizing I looked better before. When I look back and realize I was slim, it’s only after the fact. I’ve spent most of my life feeling like I could be in shape if only I figured out the formula, like I’m so close, while at the same time resigning myself to never truly expect to look in the mirror and enjoy what I see. It’s only now, at age 27, that I realize I have body image issues. 

After I got home from the mall that day, I told my mom I wanted to cut my hair. It was one small thing I could do to fix my appearance. But that didn’t stop me from still feeling fat. I was the kid too scared to swim in public without a shirt. I learned what kinds of clothes hid my belly.

Part of my struggle with my body image is a personal view that I’m failing at achieving my goal of slimming down. It’s a cycle: I’m not good enough because I’m out of shape, causing me to lose confidence and motivation to work out, but my exercise doesn’t result in feeling skinnier.

Singer Sam Smith explained poignantly this year that being called “fat” hurt more than an anti-gay slur: “I think just because I’ve accepted that if someone calls me a faggot, it’s like, I am gay and I’m proud to be gay so there’s no issues there. If someone calls you fat, that’s something I want to change.”

One of my problems is that when I do change my weight, I fail to acknowledge it.

At 14, I don’t remember a single day I felt thin, and yet I was in great shape, playing hockey regularly. It wasn’t until my senior year, when I had put on a few pounds from eating too much fast food, that I could actually see what I really looked like back then. I remember looking at a photo of my 14-year-old self and thinking, “I looked skinny.” A high school teacher responded, “No, you look good now. You look underfed there.”

I lost weight my first year of college — about 40 pounds — all due to counting calories, trying to keep it close to 1,500 a day, and eating a lot of Jimmy John’s sandwiches without mayo. At the time, I realized I had lost weight, but when I looked in the mirror I didn’t see a skinny person. I still had a knack for doing things like wearing hoodies or ribbed tanks underneath T-shirts because I felt like they covered up my curves. 

This is a phenomenon where focusing so much on a particular body part can make it bigger in our imagination, said Aaron Blashill, Ph.D., a Harvard University psychology professor.

David LaPorte, a psychology professor at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, recalled a doctoral student he had a decade ago who studied the image perceptions of guys at the gym, and discovered that 1/5 of men considered to be in shape were uncomfortable taking their shirts off. “And things have not gotten better since then,” LaPorte said.

What made the study all the more interesting was that it only looked at guys who were confident enough to go to the gym in the first place, he continued, many of whom were walking around wearing those muscle-man shirts to show off they had just worked out. I responded with a memory of the athletic guys wearing hoodies and sweats to class when I was in college, while I always felt I needed to dress up for class to compensate for my lack of an impressive body. “Compensating in different ways, I guess,” LaPorte told me.

About half of all men don’t like having their picture taken or being seen in swimwear, according to an NBC Today Show/AOL Body Image survey from last year. Research from the University of the West of England found a majority of guys felt part of their body wasn’t muscular enough, and more men than women would sacrifice at least a year of their life in exchange for a perfect body.

Sometimes I complain about my weight to my close friends, but they say they don’t see it. Some tell me they think I have an athletic build. Others say I’m skinny. I don’t believe it, and I grab my flab to prove it. I see my body bulging out of my shirt in the mirror. I don’t see an athlete. I don’t see skinny.

Three years ago, my first year in New York, a female friend asked me to the beach. I said yes, but secretly prayed for rain so I would have an excuse to back out. It didn’t rain, but my “scheduling conflicts” saved me from going. I sacrificed a beautiful day at the beach with friends all so I could avoid taking off my shirt in front of them.  

“When we avoid situations in the short-run — that can help reduce negative or difficult emotions, but in the long-run it actually serves to reinforce those thoughts that prevent us from doing something in the first place,” Blashill said.

One reason I avoid those situations is my fear of being in the vicinity of more attractive men on the beach, which makes sense because according to Blashill, “folks with body image concerns tend to engage in social comparison,” usually “upward comparison.”

When I mentioned this fear to Dr. Edward Abramson, a psychologist in California and author of the book Emotional Eating, he asked me a question: What am I afraid of?

It’s ridiculous to think my friends might see me shirtless, and suddenly become repulsed as if they’d discovered a Nazi-style swastika tattoo. So then, what exactly scared me? I realized I was afraid of what they might be thinking. It freaked me out to think people in my life would file in their mind that their friend Tyler is a fatty.

“The theme there generally is one of social anxiety,” Abramson said. “That other people are going to look at me in a certain way. I encourage people to look around them at other people and recognize that they’re far more accepting of other people’s imperfections than they are of their own.” 

I’ve had trouble reaching this point, where I can openly admit I’m uncomfortable with my body. I never thought I had a problem because I wasn’t bulimic, wasn’t anorexic and, in my opinion, wasn’t doing anything extreme. After all, is it so bad if I feel compelled to spend 45 minutes four times a week at the gym? LaPorte said probably not, unless I’m sacrificing social interactions for it.

I found this same issue with a colleague who I consider to be in great shape, and works out six days a week to maintain that. When he takes his shirt off, he said, “I feel as though all eyes are on me and no one is liking what they see.” While he finds friends supportive when he discusses his insecurities, he said,There’s a pervading sense of, ‘Dude, you have it pretty damn good.'” 

A lot of guys I interviewed around the office had similar reservations, even among those I thought looked better than me. Height was another big image problem they mentioned, which is something we can’t change. Many said that when they spoke about their issues with friends, it often goes something like this:

“Dude I feel fat”

“Look man, you’re not fat”

“But I feel fat”

“Honestly, I don’t know what to tell you, it’s not a problem.”

Contemporary masculinity does not permit a man to admit his physique is less than ideal. But if men could be more open about their own insecurities, without fear of violating the unspoken rules of masculinity, we’d do better at accepting our flaws in our bodies. And maybe then we could get closer to doing what Blashill recommended: “acknowledging there are many ways to be healthy.” 

I spent the past few months thinking a lot about this, and reflecting on my own insecurities. After talking to friends, psychologists and men around the office, I did something I avoided for years: I went to the beach.

My first day at the beach was with some close friends. In a modern romantic comedy-style plot twist, they ended up inviting someone who I’d recently been messaging on OkCupid that happened to be a mutual friend of theirs. In spite of that, I spent the day without a shirt on, in front of friends, strangers and dating profile matches, and somehow managed. No one insulted me; I still have friends; I am still able to go on dates; and I found $ 10 on the ground. In other words, the world didn’t end.

Abramson was right: I looked at other people, noticed their imperfections and recognized my opinion wasn’t changing of them. Maybe then those thoughts I have that someone can see my belly or love handles, or it looks like I have man boobs, are just my thoughts. I’m not cured, but I’ve made progress. 

At 27, I’m able to admit I don’t like my body. But it shouldn’t have taken me years to get to that point. I spent too long feeling like I had a secret, that I was hiding my weight issues, unable to talk about it, because rules of masculinity forbid it.

It shouldn’t be extraordinary for men to talk about their bodies. We shouldn’t need a goofy term like “dad bod” to admit we aren’t in perfect shape. 

Men don’t face the same unrealistic expectations as women, but they still feel pressure to look better, and they’re behind where women are in discussing insecurities. All it takes to change that is one guy opening up to his friends. As one colleague said, “Once one friend starts sharing, it sets the space for everyone else to do so as well.”

What I’ve Learned From Eight Years Of Blended Family Life

As part of our Blended Family Friday series, each week we spotlight a different stepfamily to learn how they’ve worked to bring their two families together. Our hope is that by telling their stories, we’ll bring you closer to blended family bliss in your own life!

Melissa Marks, the host of the Blended Family Podcast, is on a mission to let parents know that the problems they face in stepfamilies are totally normal. From feeling left out as as stepparent on Father’s or Mother’s Day to establishing house rules, Marks tackles it all in a no-nonsense way.

“The challenges we discuss on the podcast every week are things we’re all familiar with,” she told The Huffington Post. “I want to reach out to and help as many people as I can.”

Below, Melissa tells us what she’s learned from raising her own blended family over the last eight years.

Hi Melissa. Please introduce us to your family.
We have seven family members in total. There’s me, Shawn, grandma Candy who is 67 (she lives with us, too!) and the kids: Shawnie (16), Alicia (14), Madison (12) and Nikki (11).

We’ve been together for just over eight years and have lived together for six and a half of those years.

What are some of the biggest hurdles you’ve overcome as a family?
There are lots of different challenges blended families face, including finances, disagreements with exes and trying to get children to get along. One of the biggest hurdles for us was just trying to get everyone on the same page. When children have two different households and two different sets of rules, it can be hard to set up a structure in your own home. The way we address it is that we try our hardest to be on the same page as our exes so the kids can’t manipulate the situation. We also try to create a home where all of our rules are standard so they know what to expect when they are all with us.

What’s the best thing about being part of a blended family?
The best thing about being part of a blended family is coming together and creating new exciting relationship dynamics. We can each introduce new thoughts, ideas and personality to one another’s children. We get to watch as the relationships between the children grow stronger. Being chosen by your partner as the special person that can help raise their kids after divorce is a wonderful gift.

What makes you proudest of your family?
What makes me proudest of my family is the love that we all have towards each other. Even when they argue, the children love as if they were biological siblings. They take care of each other and have formed bonds that will last a lifetime. It hasn’t always been an easy road but we worked hard to get to where we are at right now. We are proud to know we can overcome any hurdle.

What advice do you have for other blended families who feel like peace is out of reach?
My first piece of advice would be to relax and give it time. It takes years for a blended family to work out the kinks. That’s why I started the Blended Family Podcast, because I know firsthand how hard it is but I also know how rewarding it is in the long run. In my weekly show, I answer questions and give advice about all of the struggles and challenges blended families face. I always say: a peaceful family dynamic is attainable, all you need is love!

On Being a Social Pariah. Part 2- Things I’ve Learned

…. Continued from “On Being A Pariah (part 1) Perception is Powerful but Compassion is calm.

“There are three sides to every story:
Mine, Theirs, and the truth.”

The inability to acknowledge or see this by so many people I know is…well, funny. I laugh and let go. Not in sarcasm, but in confusion and self-preservation to accept people are all different and if their truth is black and white, who am I to say how THEY should see things?

That would be ME being hypocritical, no? It’s interesting to see how the hypocrisies play out.
Here are a few facts I’ve gathered through observation:

1. The men throwing a fit and putting up a show of shock and overly enraged fury are… cheating.
Not always, but to be clear: I do believe most men and women are different in many ways. A more normal response from men when they hear of an affair: “Shit. That sucks. I hope the kids are ok. That’s terrible.” If it’s extreme or highly emotional with gesticulations, it’s probably for the benefit of an angry wife or in fear of seeming too indifferent. (Precisely because most men ask themselves, rationally, “how does this effect me?”)

2. It’s “inconvenient” to everyone else.
This one shocked me. People are “annoyed” I’m not acting more normal, being more social or doing things I used to do. Conversely, if I do show up (school events, parties for people I care about, meetings) most peers are frustrated because THEY don’t know how to treat me in public. Huh? How is this my fault? IF how to “handle” or engage me is something you have to think about, you probably are doing or not doing it for the wrong reasons. Period. Ponder that.

3. In time, true and valuable people find their way to you. The flimsy fall out and flee.
When any scandal hits, true and fair humans tend to sit back, collect data and then reach out with reliability, compassion or both. I feel so blessed and surprised to see and re-meet some of my peers that I never knew were so authentic, and genuinely good people.

4. It’s a double standard of gender.
Men don’t punish each other. They barely acknowledge marital issues to each other and certainly don’t ascertain assumptions they can’t confirm. Women make it a cold war with me, but are fine talking to men with full knowledge they have committed the same “crime.”

5. Kool-aid is pretty sugary and fun. Perception seems powerful.
Like anything if you say it enough, it becomes “true.” I’ve never seen it more. Even some of the parties involved started drinking their own Kool-Aid and need to be swiftly reminded, in truth, what pure water tastes like but ultimately I hand them all a huge pitcher of whatever flavor they want. It’s their thirst.

Here’s what I know: I am never going to change anyone. I am not even mad when people look down, instead of face my husband and I at a school event or bow out of pre-planned, public play dates because I will be there. I just laugh and let go. I focus on pride in my children.

My oldest daughter initiated a group now officially offered at school called “Banana Splits” to get kids together to talk about divorce and support each other weekly. My middle daughter is excelling at reading, writing, drawing and is comfortable with our situation because WE ARE. We own it and define it.

2015-05-22-1432301177-3067356-Bananasplits.jpg

I apologized, accepted fault, took full accountability, even more than I should have, because I seek calm. I am fully aware that what makes me who I am, is far more and far bigger, far deeper than my mistakes, my poor decisions and my choices.

A lot has happened in six months. I have broken, battled, changed, healed, rebuilt. I truly have compassion for anyone going through anything similar, or judgments, or alienation, or feeling lonely, or any number of things that happen in all facets of life.

I have compassion for the harshest of judges because something in me elicits enough emotion to justify the energy taken to punish, ignore, or waste time talking about me. Perhaps they think I threaten an ideal? Maybe my mess is scary? Do my mistakes or the surface details trigger their own pain, fear, mistrust from some entirely unrelated event?

Or worse: Like a soap opera, do my exposed vulnerability and failures make people feel better about themselves?

Whatever the case, I truly meant no harm to anyone- that’s the truth. I didn’t set out to punish or ruin or lie. I assure you those were never my goals, had I seen the future and the following collateral damage, I’d probably not be here. Irony. That’s the point.

I have huge truckloads of compassion and empathy. I always have. That wasn’t my biggest problem….no. Clearly, I had others. But compassion and love are not something I lack, neither is objectivity.

2015-05-22-1432301253-6615411-Iam.stones.IMG_4876.JPG

I beg the question: “If they WERE compassionate, empathetic, or honest with themselves,
Wouldn’t they, at the very least, be indifferent; if not understanding?

So I laugh and let go.

Cate Blanchett: I’ve Dated Women ‘Many Times’

Actress Cate Blanchett has revealed to Variety magazine that she has been in same-sex relationships “many times.”

The two-time Oscar winner was discussing her role as the title character in the upcoming film “Carol.” Based on the 1952 Patricia Highsmith novel “The Price of Salt,” the movie tells the story of a young department store clerk played by Rooney Mara who falls in love with the older, married Carol.

Variety reports:

When asked if this is her first turn as a lesbian, Blanchett curls her lips into a smile. “On film — or in real life?” she asks coyly. Pressed for details about whether she’s had past relationships with women, she responds: “Yes. Many times,” but doesn’t elaborate.

Blanchett and her husband, playwright Andrew Upton, have four children.

In the wide-ranging interview, the Australian actress also discussed the difficulty of bringing a film like “Carol” to the big screen.

“Midrange films with women at the center are tricky to finance,” she said. “There are a lot of people laboring under the misapprehension that people don’t want to see them, which isn’t true.”

Blanchett also revealed that she doesn’t watch her own movies, doesn’t Google herself and said she’ll never join Twitter.

“I think I’d end up in rehab,” she said. “That stuff is addictive.”

Read the full interview here.

“Carol” premieres on Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival.

‘I’ve Divorced My Ex Twice, But I’m Still In Love’ (VIDEO)

Gwen says she has married and divorced Derrick twice — but she would take a third trip down the aisle if he would fess up to his mistakes. Gwen claims that while married, Derrick hit her, stole from her and disappeared for months at a time, the first time only two months into their union. “A few days after he returned, he was very apologetic. He told me that he was going to spend the rest of his life showing me how much he loved me and making up for what he had done.” But Gwen says that wasn’t the last time her husband left. “He continued to disappear for days, weeks and even months at a time. Derrick left me to have our daughter by myself and didn’t see her for the first three-and-a-half months of her life,” she says.

Gwen says she and Derrick eventually divorced, but six years later, Derrick convinced her he was sorry for his mistakes and they remarried. “I was doing everything I could to try to make him happy. Nothing was ever good enough,” she says. Suspecting he was cheating, Gwen hacked into his Facebook account and discovered private messages to other women. “The guy I once thought was my Prince Charming turned into a nightmare. I couldn’t take it anymore, and Derrick and I divorced a second time,” Gwen says.

Derrick says Gwen is a “vindictive, sadistic succubus” who is out to ruin his life. “I got remarried to Gwen because I was lonely. I wasn’t sold on getting remarried a second time, but we have a child together, and I was trying to make it work,” he says. “Gwen might tell you that she’s not controlling, but she controlled every aspect of my life. She was paranoid of me looking at other women, constantly accusing me of cheating … she sucks the life out of me.” But Derrick doesn’t rule out rekindling his relationship with his ex. “If we both got our acts together, I could see a point where we might get back together, but I don’t know if we’d ever say ‘I do’ again.”

So why after two failed marriages would Gwen and Derrick consider walking down the aisle again? Watch the video above and tune in Wednesday to find out if Dr. Phil thinks they have a future as a couple — or only as co-parents.

10 Lessons I’ve Learned About Marriage From Divorce

Unfortunately, I know a thing or two about divorce. My parents divorced when I was in my twenties, and my first marriage ended in divorce after 13 years. Even my closest friends all have parents who are divorced.

So when my marriage ended, I thought that having a successful marriage wasn’t in the cards for me. But as luck would have it, I ended up meeting and marrying a man who is not just an amazing person, but a top-notch husband. My second marriage has been my version of Happily Ever After.

What I’ve learned from my experiences of divorce and remarriage, and from observing other couples, is that every couple has the ability to have a successful marriage. Marital success has nothing to do with education, economics or social status. In fact, if ever there was an even playing field, it is in this area.

Having a successful marriage is all about the choices we make every minute of every day. Marriages fail when spouses make poor choices as to how they are going to treat each other. It isn’t more complicated than that. So here are some of my insights about marriage (some learned the hard way) and how you can make good choices and have your own happily ever after…

Lesson #1: Remember that it isn’t your job to make your spouse happy. Your job is to help create an environment in which your spouse can be happy. That means get your act together and be a dependable partner. That means don’t create unnecessary stress or conflict in your marriage. That means genuinely love and encourage your spouse. After that, whether or not they are happy is up to them.

Lesson #2: It helps immensely if you and your spouse have a spiritual practice. Your choice of religion doesn’t really matter. Simply following any spiritual teaching that reinforces the importance of love, compassion and forgiveness, will inspire both of you to treat each other far better than you would otherwise.

Lesson #3: If you are married, that fact should be part of your public persona. Wear your wedding ring. Talk about your spouse in glowing terms to your colleagues and friends. Being married should be part of who you are.

Lesson #4: You can always find someone smarter, more attractive or more successful than your spouse. Remember: your spouse can do the same. “Affair proof” your marriage by telling your spouse regularly how highly you think of them. A daily dose of positive reinforcement goes a long way.

Lesson #5: Frequent physical intimacy is necessary for a happy marriage. Don’t make it complicated. You don’t need outfits, pornography, role playing, threesomes, spouse swapping, BDSM or anything else. You only need to give your spouse your undivided attention, caring and acceptance. It requires nothing more and nothing less.

Lesson #6: If your daily communications with your spouse are limited to the Costco list and your children’s soccer practice schedules, then you both are going to be looking elsewhere for a romantic charge. Flirt with your spouse, not your co-workers or the Starbucks barista.

Lesson #7: Dating does not end on your wedding day. When you go out with your spouse, act like it is your first date. Put on a great outfit, hold hands and make interesting conversation. Don’t save your best self for others. Give your best self to your spouse.

Lesson #8: If you are married, you have an obligation to take care of your appearance. You are the person who is most closely associated with your spouse, and you shouldn’t be an embarrassment to them. You don’t have to look like Kate Upton or Will Smith. You just have to look your best.

Lesson #9: There is no glory in remaining in a bad marriage. No one is going to give you a gold sticker or saint you. Worse yet, your kids ultimately may not thank you for it. So choose how and with whom you spend your time on this earth wisely.

Lesson #10: People stay in marriages for many reasons. For their children. For money. For convenience. For ambition, political or otherwise. But you will find no greater joy than being married solely for love.

Over the years, I’ve learned that marriage is not for the faint of heart. It requires a level of maturity and selflessness that most people don’t possess when they first say, “I do.” However, if you are patient and work hard at it, the rewards of a happy marriage are immeasurable.

Azealia Banks Calls Kendrick Lamar Comments “Dumbest Sh*t I’ve Ever Heard A Black Man Say”

Azealia Banks joined the Twitter discussion regarding Kendrick Lamar’s Billboard cover story — particularly statements he made regarding Black people.

Citing that Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Mo. was a travesty, Lamar continued “But when we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don’t start with just a rally, don’t start from looting — it starts from within.”

The Harlem rapper focused her angst on the aforementioned statement, calling it the “dumbest sh*t I’ve ever heard a black man say.”

Banks has been at the head of multiple racial discussions in the last few weeks, directing public critiques at Iggy Azalea for cultural appropriation, arguing her case on Hot 97 and even engaging in Twitter beef with Action Bronson.

The remainder of the Broke With Exquisite Taste rapper’s commentary about Kendrick can be found after the jump.
