1 Jessy Mendiola was FHM’s Top Sexiest Woman of 2016, but the latest partial results reveal that the actress wasn’t in the 10 shortlisted candidates. On May 29 and June 1, however, she was included in the roster.
One basher with the Instagram handle @zimplybhie asked her, “Ano feeling na 'di ka man lang pumasok sa top 5 ng FHM eh last year number 1 ka hala ka baka iwan ka ni Luis @senorita_jessy.” This comment was posted on Jessy’s Instagram photo with her British-Lebanese dad.
Clearly annoyed with the question, she then responded, “@zimplybhie alam mo sa totoo lang, hindi naman ako mamamatay kung hindi ako makapasok sa FHM. Bakit ka ba sobrang affected? Sali ka 'te para di ka masyadong stressed ha? Kalma ka.”

2 Katy Perry live-streamed her therapy session with a psychiatrist because the singer wanted to remove the stigma on mental health conditions. She shared how she grew up in a conservative family, and how she toggled between living as Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (her real name) and Katy Perry.
Her celeb alter-ego was where she made her fantasies come true, but it exhausted her. Perry then revealed that she had thoughts of ending her life. Her entourage members wanted her to end the session, but the singer refused and said that it even inspired her to write a song about it. "I feel ashamed that I would have those thoughts, feel that low and that depressed," she divulged.
Perry’s fans expressed their sympathies. They even said that her raw and real confession made them feel not alone in their struggle with mental health. (Self)
