1. Madonna is apparently annoyed with the unauthorized biopic about her rise to stardom, “Blond Ambition.”

Universal has bought the screenplay to “Blond Ambition” and plans to produce it, even as Madonna seems to be trashing the project on Instagram.

And since Madonna didn’t write any of her early hits, and she does not control the copyrights to many of her early songs, she does not have the power to stop them from using those songs.

While she did write, “Everybody” and “Lucky Star,” she didn’t write “Holiday,” “Crazy for You,” “Borderline,” “Like a Virgin,” “Material Girl” and “Dress You Up.”

2. Going to the restroom “just in case” may not actually be good for you

According to Anne Henderson, a consultant gynecologist at Nauda Medical in London, going to the bathroom can actually cause issues for your bladder in the long term.

Apparently going to the bathroom before a movie or before sitting down to watch a TV show can actually cause problems down the road, since the bladder is a learned behavior.

Anne Henderson explains:
“…once a pattern is set during potty training, this becomes second nature and the body’s various nerve pathways carry on this process without our conscious action.”

“A new faulty pattern can replace the existing healthy one, and the bladder effectively malfunctions,”

7. A new law would require stylists to look for signs of domestic abuse

A new state law in New York may be passed that would make stylists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists have to be trained in identifying signs of domestic abuse.

While they will be trained as they often are close to their clients, and may be able to easily identify signs, they will not be held liable for missing signs or even be forced to report to the police.
