Divabetic, the national nonprofit organization inspired by Luther Vandross, which provides education and empowerment to all types of divas at risk, affected by and living with diabetes is proclaiming Tuesdays as ‘Dude’s Day.’ #dudesday
“We’re shining the spotlight on men because we want to help counter the alarming statistics documenting the higher significance of complications in men living diabetes, says Max ‘Mr. Divabetic’ Szadek.
“ Men with diabetes also face special concerns like impotence (not being able to have or keep an erection) which effects the daily lives of our divas. We plan to present a dazzling array of health information, news headlines, fitness, food and pictures of our favorite male celebrities from the sports, entertainment and political arenas in order to provide inspiration to the men in our community.”
According to the 2006 American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists report, The State of Diabetes Complications in America, 7.9% of men with diabetes experienced congestive heart failure compared to 1.4% of those with normal blood sugar. The prevalence of chest pain, heart attack, and coronary heart disease were all 3 to 6% higher in men with diabetes than in men without, and 6.8% of men with diagnosed diabetes suffered stroke compared to 1.5% of men with normal blood sugar levels.
Dude’s Day breaking news:the superstar party band, LMFAO is not done party rocking. LMFAO—aka the duo made up of Redfoo and SkyBlu—are going on an indefinite hiatus, SkyBlu has spoken up to set the record straight.
“Well, you know, first of all, we’re not breaking up. I know that for sure. We’re family and stuff, so it’s always love,” he said to MTV news. “It’s interesting because somebody will say one thing [and] it’s just like high school, then all of a sudden [it's] ‘They’re breaking up. They’re fighting.’ It kind of gets blown out of proportion, so we’re definitely not breaking up.”
Skyblu also announced the news on the duo’s official Twitter page, posting “We’re not breaking up baby” with a link to the MTV article.
While they are not splitting up for good, SkyBlu does confirm that they are indeed taking a hiatus from party rocking and will be focusing on separate projects for the time being.
“Well, you know, we’ve been working as LMFAO for so long, and you know we’ve been working on a lot of other projects as well. And so I feel like our creative paths, we need to kind of realize these projects we’ve been working on. And it’ll free up our minds and stuff to be able to take on another LMFAO project because the next one we do it’s got to be that like [an] amazing, amazing crazy album and stuff like that,” he said. “It’s kind of like, let us get our wind up, let us kind of show the world who we are as individuals and then we come together stronger than ever.”
As for any bad blood between the musical bros? Sky shoots down those rumors as well:
“I love Foo with all my heart, that’s my man. Me and him we did this whole thing together. I have him to thank for a lot of stuff that’s going right in my life,” he explains to MTV. “Me and him are always good. That’s my uncle. I love him.”
You see that, folks?
Whether singing together or flying solo, these dudes are still sexy and they know it.
