Bathing can probably seem like a normal thing for most people, but for others, it’s something that shouldn’t always be a priority, unless completely necessary. The big celebrity bathing debate started with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher stating that they really only bathe the essential areas regularly and only bathe their kids when they see dirt on them. Terry Crews is another one of the celebrities that have chimed in on the topic.
How Terry Crews Feels About Bathing
With much of Hollywood talking about the celebrity bathing debate, Terry Crews was bound to get asked about his take on things at some point. The host of America’s Got Talent told Access Hollywood about his shower routine. He mentioned that he showered quite frequently because of how much he sweats.
He also added that he had already taken 3 showers that day and referred to Dwayne Johnson’s take on the matter. He took a shower in the morning right after his workout, before he went in for the interview with Access Hollywood, and then in between acts.
While Terry Crews is adamant about showering because of how much he sweats, he did mention that if a person is not sweating, they don’t need to shower. That kind of stirred the pot.
Where the Debate Started
After Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher shared their thoughts on bathing, other celebrities started sharing their opinions on the matter. Dwayne Johnson mentioned that he’s the opposite of not showering and takes at least 3 showers each day. Jake Gyllenhaal mentioned that each day he finds bathing to be less essential, while Richard Marx said he showers every single day.
Other celebrities like Terry Crews, Dax Shepard, Kristin Bell, Cardi B, Jason Momoa, Chris Evans, and more have shared their thoughts on the topic. While some of them bathe every day, not all of them were pro-bathing regularly.
TikTok Will Soon Let Users Post Videos up to 10 Minutes Long
TikTok will soon eliminate its three-minute video limit and allow all users to publish videos up to ten minutes in length, the Chinese social network confirmed. It implemented the current limit in July 2021, increasing it from 60 seconds, after initially increasing it from 15 seconds.
The app has traditionally been viewed as a short-form video platform but is now positioning itself to compete even more directly with YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. TikTok users will benefit from the increased video duration when creating clips such as beauty tips, cooking demonstrations, and comic routines.
At the moment, anyone making clips must entice viewers to return for a “Part 2” or longer video. The issue is that users frequently have to scroll through a creator’s feed to find the appropriate video in a series.
“We’re constantly brainstorming new ways to add value to our community and improve the TikTok experience,” one TikTok representative explains.
Longer Videos, Finally!
Last year, TikTok bravely introduced longer videos, giving its community more time to be creative and entertaining on the platform. Once the latest update starts to roll out, users will be able to upload videos that are up to 10 minutes. This will hopefully unleash even more creative possibilities for creators around the world.
TikTok’s Great Success
YouTube, which generated $28.8 billion in ad revenue in 2021, responded to TikTok’s success by creating its short-form video competitor, YouTube Shorts, in 2020, while Instagram also launched Instagram Reels and Snapchat has a feature called Spotlight.
However, experts assert that longer-form material is often “easier to monetize and keeps users engaged for longer periods.” TikTok was named the world’s most popular online destination last year, topping even Google, the American search engine giant.
According to Cloudfare’s rankings, TikTok dethroned Google in February, March, and June 2021, and retained the top spot from August till the end of the year. Google was first in 2020, followed by Amazon, TikTok, Apple, Facebook, Netflix, and Microsoft, who were all in the top ten.
