Yara Shahidi on Getting Out the Youth Vote: ‘Hopefully We See Change Coming This Midterms’

Even before turning 18 in February, Yara Shahidi encouraged Gen-Z to engage politically via Eighteen x 18.

“There are two major problems: information dissemination and voter registration,” the Black-ish star, who is one of PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World, says in this week’s issue.

Though Shahidi, who was accepted to Harvard for this year, believes “anyone who follows me knows where I lean,” her organization remains nonpartisan.

“The information disseminated should allow us to look at each topic at hand and form our own opinions and allow that to determine your partisanship, rather than the other way around,” she says.

And Shahidi won’t let backlash over actors, musicians and athletes getting political stop her from speaking out.

“If your very body is being politicized, you have every right to speak up and should be able to utilize your platform,” the Minnesota native asserts. “It’s not a matter of being an actor or an actress, but being a human that’s concerned and affected by the world at hand.”

In September, Eighteen x 18 hosted its first #WeVoteNext summit in Los Angeles so Shahidi could directly connect young people.

RELATED VIDEO: Meet the Inspiring Women Demanding Action on Gun Violence Prevention

“It was a nice group of kids because each state was represented,” the actress says. “It was a moment to actually talk to each other about what we want to see in our political system, in this midterm election. So rather than me saying, ‘I’m the voice of Generation Z or somebody who knows every single person in my peer group,’ we actually got to talk to each other and figure out what we wanted and what we needed and take local approaches.”

Shahidi, who comes from a family of educators, thinks the motivation for young people to vote starts with learning history — but admits that the current curriculum has its flaws.

“I feel like often times, you’re only told about your government in your U.S. government class or U.S. history, and even still, it’s of the government of the 18th century. How does that even apply?” she asks. “Having learned a very Euro-centric history, often times there is no correlation between us and our duty to the people around us. I think that history should be restructured. And those classes should be restricted to be more inclusive.”

For full coverage of PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World, pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday

But with early voting numbers already breaking records, the Grown-ish actress remains optimistic about the future. “I’m inspired that hopefully we see change coming this midterms,” Shahidi says. “My goal is that it’s a culture that’s here to stay.”

This College Is Offering a Class on Anthony Bourdain (But You Don’t Have to Go There to Take It)

Anthony Bourdain‘s legacy lives on in the classroom.

Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana is offering a course about the chef, who died by suicide in June, in their spring semester.

The class, according to a course summary posted on Twitter by professor Todd Kennedy, will include lessons about both Bourdain’s writings and TV shows and the “writings and films that influenced him.”

“What he did is so unique,” Todd Kennedy tells PEOPLE. “We talk about connections between literature and film and art and politics and history, but we’re always trained to talk about them separately. He goes all in and puts all those things, along with food, in conversation to try to understand the culture he’s looking at. And that speaks to people.”

RELATED: Why Anthony Bourdain’s Final Narration in Parts Unknown Is So ‘Uncanny’, According to Director

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Kennedy says that Bourdain’s death allowed him to reevaluate what he really liked about the celebrity chef, prompting the class. One of the most surprising facets he learned was how much of Bourdain’s work was inspired by classic film and literature.

“I picked up on a lot of the references,” Kennedy says. “But I wasn’t quite aware how pervasive it was. Quite often, he picked locations after he picked the movie. He was so committed, that’s how he approached a lot of his travel.”

Audiences hungry for a class about Bourdain don’t need to travel to Parts Unknown. The college will also be offering an online, accelerated version of the course.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Kennedy tells PEOPLE that the online course makes it easier for students at other universities to get credit for taking the class. While the course is listed as a literature class, it may also become a space for aspiring chefs to pay homage to the late personality.

“One of the reasons we thought about this class is because we have a large culinary arts program at Nicholls,” he says. “We thought it would be an interesting elective for some of those students.”

RELATED: An Anthony Bourdain Documentary Is in the Works

Those interested will need to act fast if they want to enroll. “So, it’s happening. For real,” Kennedy wrote on Twitter. “And I doubt they ever let me do it again.”

The twelfth and final season of the Emmy-winning TV series Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown airs on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on CNN.

Joker Set Photo Suggests the DC Movie Inspired by This Film

While The King of Comedy is a widely reported inspiration for the Joker origin movie, new clues from the set hint that another Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro classic — Taxi Driver — could also be an influence.

The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver are both profiles of deranged and broken men, delusional urban loners who criminally lash out at those they feel have rejected them, and the Joker movie — penned by director Todd Phillips (the Hangover trilogy) and co-screenwriter Scott Silver (8 Mile, The Fighter) — certainly sounds like it’s in a similar vein. The official plot synopsis for Joker describes Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck as “a man disregarded by society” and the DC film as “not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.”

Fifth Harmony’s Ally Brooke Is Ready to ‘Unleash’ Herself with Solo Music: ‘For So Long, I Was in This Box’

Former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke is “Miss Movin On.”

The 25-year-old opened up exclusively to PEOPLE recently about her newest venture as a solo artist after the pop group announced an indefinite hiatus in May. First on Brooke’s list? She’s ready to “unleash Ally.”

“For so long I was in this box and now I’m out of it,” she says. “I’m able to be who I want to be.”

“Even my mom got emotional the other day. She’s like, ‘Ally, you are you again,’” she adds. “And it’s beautiful. It really is.”

Brooke recently signed a solo deal with Atlantic Records’ Latium Entertainment, where she says she is receiving all the support she has ever wanted to make her own music.

“I love being able to have a say in everything that I do,” the singer says. “They’re so open and also very smart and meticulous, and they pay attention to the details which is something that I’m just such a fan of.”

As for the type of work that fans can expect from her, Brooke says that the music “will be different than Fifth Harmony” but will still feature a young vibe that set the girl group apart from other artists.

RELATED VIDEO: Fifth Harmony Announces Hiatus as Members ‘Pursue Solo Endeavors’

“It’ll definitely have some flavor and flair, and I’ll be able to really be a different Ally than I was in Fifth Harmony,” she says.

There is no date set for the release of her new music, but Brooke is excited “about a few records.”

“We’re kind of just going with the flow, but you should definitely stay tuned. Sometime between now and 2022,” she says, laughing. “AB1 is on its way.”

The Latina artist is also excited to pursue Latin-influenced music, and “definitely has plans” to sing in Spanish. In fact, her new label is known for Latin artists like Play-n-Skillz and Messiah, who is featured on the Spanish remix of Cardi B’s smash hit “Bodak Yellow.”

Cardi B is on the list of people Brooke would love to work with, along with Justin Timberlake and Jennifer Lopez, who has been one of her inspirations since she was young.

“She’s such an outstanding performer,” she says. “She’s Latina and she’s paved the way for so many people. For me to even exist, it’s because of her, which is unreal.”

Brooke has been working on a couple songs with songwriters and producers like Yei Gonzalez, who produced “Dinero” by Jennifer Lopez ft. DJ Khaled and Cardi B, Grammy winner James Fauntleroy from 1500 or Nothin’ and Diane Warren, who has had nine No. 1 songs on the Hot 100.

Recently, Brooke attended the Teen Choice Awards, where she was nominated for Choice Electronic/Dance Song and met up with former Fifth Harmony singer Normani. Aside from interacting through social media, she says she and the girls haven’t seen each other since their last show in May.

“Everyone’s doing their own thing so we haven’t really talked to each other,” she says. “I think everyone’s just in their own lane, in their own element.”

Along with her solo ventures in music, Brooke has been an avid representative of the ASPCA. She recently began fostering two kittens named Ladybelle and Minnie and plans to adopt them soon.

“We need to be their voices. They don’t have voices and we need to protect them,” she says. “They’re pure beings and we just need to take care of them.”

“I have a team who really believes in me and fights for me and who wants to see my visions come alive,” she says. “It feels like nothing I could ever describe, but I’m just thankful and I feel so blessed.”

This Is How Netflix Buys Shows

In order to secure top-tier series like Stranger Things and Altered Carbon, Netflix is paying more in upfront costs than traditional broadcast networks, in addition to handing out seven-figure deals to prolific producers like Shonda Rhimes, Ryan Murphy and now Kenya Barris. (Variety reports the creator of Blackish just inked a $ 10 million three-year overall deal at the streaming network).

While this aggressive financial tactic appears to be the obvious move to compete in the entertainment content wars of 2018, there are some disadvantages for creators and studios who choose the Netflix approach over traditional networks but don’t have the clout of Rhimes, Barris or Murphy.

This One ‘Beautiful’ Item Will Make Your Bathroom Joanna Gaines-Approved — And It’s Under $4

Fall is just around the corner and you know what that means — a new Joanna Gaines-designed home collection arriving at Target!
Hearth & Hand with Magnolia, the Fixer Upper star’s line of farmhouse modern-inspired decor, is introducing a slew of new pieces for its autumn refresh, but one affordable find in particular tops the HGTV alum’s list.
“I love storing everyday items like cotton balls in these amber glass containers,” she explains in a decorating tips video, above. “They have a warm feel that embodies the fall season.” 
RELATED: Joanna Gaines Says Surprise Pregnancy at 40 Was ‘a Gift’: ‘I Truly Thought I Was Done’
The mom of five, 40 — she and husband Chip, 43, welcomed a baby boy in June — isn’t thinking only of aesthetics, however. With her party of 7 living under one roof in the family’s Waco farmhouse, she also has to make sure every piece does its job.

Showing off a bathroom decorated with her latest designs, Joanna notes, “The key to making this space both functional and beautiful is to contain things in a creative way.” Hearth & Hand already includes home organization aplenty, like sophisticated fabric-covered storage boxes and hanging file folders in Jo’s signature hues (spot the “weekend blue?”). But the glass vessels, which come in three sizes and range from $ 3.99 to $ 9.99, are a welcome addition for the first-ever fall lineup (the brand launched last November).

WATCH THIS: Chip and Joanna Gaines’s Cutest Couple Moments 

Jo offers a few more tips for a seasonal refresh, including not going overboard with the pumpkins and scarecrows: “Start with subtle updates to your exterior,” she suggests, “like a wreath, doormat and a galvanized bin to catch footwear before going into the house.”

And when the time arrives for holiday guests, be sure to pamper them a little. “I like to have a guest basket prepped for when family and friends visit,” says the consummate hostess. (She once had nine kids staying in her house at once!) “Hand towels, candles and bath salts are some of my favorites.”

Ariana Grande’s surprise engagement to boyfriend of several weeks Pete Davidson may have shocked fans, but the singer seems to have dropped a hint over the weekend, wearing what looks to be a large diamond engagement ring on her social media channels.

Hours before a source confirmed the couple’s engagement to PEOPLE, the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer, 24, shared a photo of a huge diamond sparkler on that finger on her Instagram Stories.

A second insider tells PEOPLE, “All I know about the ring is that it’s big,” which is true of the mini diamond meteor Grande has been wearing.

In the photo, taken from her mother Joan’s birthday dinner, Grande placed her left hand on the matriarch’s shoulder as she posed for the picture with brother Frankie.

How This Mom Lost 105 Lbs. with Intermittent Fasting: ‘I Went Into it Kind of Skeptical’

Watch the full episode of People Features: How We Lost 100 Pounds! streaming now on PeopleTV.com, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device.

For years, Nissa Graun was an extreme yo-yo dieter.

After trying her first diet at age 12, the mom from Mesa, Arizona spent years gaining and losing anywhere from 20 to 50 lbs., over and over again.

“That was a while ago, so the diets were about counting your fat grams, making sure you were eating very low fat and a lot of processed foods,” Graun, 38, tells PEOPLE for the 2018 “How We Lost 100 Lbs.” issue.

Graun would compound her improper diet with overexercising, and then question why she didn’t feel healthy.

“For years I would eat very low calories while working out six to seven days a week, for probably two hours a day,” she says. “So I would get to the point where I would restrict so much, and then I would keep restricting and feel deprived, and then I would over eat the junk food that put on the weight.”

Graun weighed around 180 lbs., but then she got pregnant with her first child in 2014, and gained 65 lbs., and developed gestational diabetes.

“I was told if I didn’t get control of my diet, it could turn into regular diabetes,” she says. “So for the six months following my pregnancy, I tried desperately to lose the weight with everything I had tried before — counting calories, over exercising — and none of it really helped me.”

Then Graun learned about a plan that was the opposite of what she was doing, one that focused on a high-fat, lower-carb diet.

“That actually worked for me, by cutting out a lot of the processed carbohydrates and adding in healthy fats like coconut oil or butter,” she says. “It actually started to move the scale, which nothing else would up until that point.”

For more on Graun and four more women who lost 100 lbs., pick up a copy of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

She also started doing intermittent fasting, where she wouldn’t eat for 14 hours a day.

“I wouldn’t eat after dinner, and then I would wake up, do a fasted workout and then I wouldn’t eat my breakfast until maybe eight o’clock or nine o’clock … It really helped bring my blood sugars into a better range, and I was no longer considered diabetic.”

And though Graun was “kind of skeptical” when she started intermittent fasting, it quickly worked for her. She dropped 90 lbs. after her pregnancy, and when she got pregnant again two years later, she no longer had gestational diabetes.

Graun stuck to the same plan after her second pregnancy, with some slight adjustments — she now fasts for 16 hours a day — and is down 105 lbs.

“This is the first time that I’ve really eaten real food,” she says. “My body is getting what it’s designed to get, and it really loves that.”

And Graun, who naturally spends most of the year in shorts, T-shirts and swimsuits, thanks to Arizona’s heat, now feels good in her body.

“From season to season, I used to keep all of my bigger clothes because I always thought I would need them,” she says. “Now it feels good to just be able to maintain the same size season after season, year after year.”

Father’s Day Spending Expected to Hit $15.3 Billion This Year

Dads can expect a little less to be spent on them for Father’s Day this year.
According to a study by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics, spending on the holiday is projected to reach $ 15.3 billion this year, down just slightly from the $ 15.5 billion spent last year.
This translates into an average of $ 133 a person for the 77 percent of Americas who plan on celebrating the holiday on June 17. Individuals between 25 and 34 years of age are expected to spend the most, an average of $ 188.
“We are pleased to see consumer confidence continue to rise, leading to another near-record holiday spend on Father’s Day,” said NRF president and chief executive officer Matthew Shay. “Leading into the second half of the year, Americans are looking forward to treating their dads, and retailers will be prepared to offer a variety of gift options that will create new memories on this special day.”
According to the survey, consumers plan to spend $ 2.2 billion on apparel, which is expected to be purchased by 43 percent of shoppers; $ 2.1 billion on gift cards (42 percent), and $ 1.8 billion on consumer electronics (20 percent). In addition, $ 878 million will be spent on home

Khloé Kardashian on What Surprised Her About Being a Mom: ‘You Find This Energy and Patience’

Khloé Kardashian has been a mom to daughter True for just five weeks now, but she’s already learned a lot about being a parent.

While she’s been an aunt to her nieces and nephews for many years, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 33, recently revealed that there have been some unexpected surprises about having her own child.

“I’ve always been really patient with children and it’s come in handy now that I’m a mommy. I think what surprises me most is no matter how tired you are, you find this energy and patience for your child,” the new mom shared on her app and website on Tuesday.

“You know that babies are so helpless and they rely on you for everything. So something just takes over and you find the energy to care for this helpless precious baby,” she wrote of her daughter, who was born on April 12.

As she continues to learn more things about being a mom, Kardashian recently admitted that she’s also learning how to fit in her favorite workouts in between feedings.

“The beginning parts of working out kind of suck because you’re pushing your body so hard, you’re so tired, and you’re trying to get back into your rhythm,” the Good American mogul told fans and followers on Snapchat Monday.

“It’s much more difficult than I think you expect it to be. I’ve been working out for 11 days now, I feel really good, but tired. My body is sore because it’s re-waking itself back up,” she added.

“Five weeks after baby, feeling good. Muscle memory is a real thing because it’s still under there. Got to tighten it all up. I’ve got to get rid of this part. Just need everything to be solid,” she said while pointing out her backside.

The new mom also emphasized, “Just because I have a baby, doesn’t mean I have to stop doing the things that I love, and I love working out and getting my mind right.”
