Beyonce Heat By Beyonce For Women Eau De Parfum Spray, 3.4-Ounce / 100 Ml



ASA's statement follows:

"Beyonce's body movements and the camera's prolonged focus on shots of her dress slipping away to partially expose her breasts created a sexually provocative ad that was unsuitable to be seen by young children.

Halle Recounts Her Panic When She Lost Daughter in a Dept. Store.



via US Weekly: On The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday, Halle Berry recounts the horror she recently experienced when she lost daughter Nahla, 3, in a department store. "Talk about sweating," she says. "And you just freak out for about 30 seconds. I came undone. I think my head projected off my body."

Berry, 44, says she remembers standing, holding Nahla's hand. 

"And then all of a sudden, I looked down at a price tag or something, and she toddled off for what seemed like two seconds," she says. "The next thing I know, I looked back around and it was like, Whosh! Gone! And I said, 'Nahla? Nahla? Nahla?' Gone," she continues. "My heart just started ... I'm like, Close the store! Shut the door! My daughter's gone!'"

 Turns out, Berry says, "She was right next to me -- in a rounder of clothes where the pants were hanging. Right there. And after I became a lunatic and totally embarrassed myself, she stuck her head out and was like, 'Hi.'"

I have a whole crew to get me ready every day,” she said. “I believe in glamour. I am in favor of a little vanity. I don’t rely on just my genes.
