Joe Rogan weighs in on Twitch’s body paint rules

A trend has taken off on Twitch recently with body painting streams causing some debate in the community, but UFC commentator and podcast host Joe Rogan says “why not?”

Artistic streams and body painting specifically is not entirely new on Twitch generally, but in February 2018, Twitch made explicit mention of body paint and its place on the platform.

In an update of community guidelines, they stated that body painting is welcome provided it does not “violate our policies” – which includes being ‘sexually suggestive’.

However, what is classified as sexually suggestive is slightly difficult to pin down to an exact science, and Twitch says it will take into account numerous contextual factors and ‘intent’.

Attire is meant to be suitable for the activity, which of course makes body painting somewhat of a grey area, but focus on “male or female genitals, buttocks, or nipples” is not permitted.

When discussing body painting on Twitch during his November 10 podcast, Rogan said “Why not? If you can wear a skin tight shirt that shows your nipples – and I’m all for that – why can’t a girl paint her tits and make some money?”

His guest, Brendan Schaub, plays Devil’s advocate however, posing the question “Can a guy paint his dick and make some money?”

After looking at a few examples of Twitch body painting, the pair were both equally surprised that it was allowed on Twitch, but neither appeared to be strongly against it either.

Currently, body painting appears to be a tolerated, although not celebrated, portion of content on Twitch, which very finely balances on the line between artistic and creative content and being too ‘sexually suggestive’, and there is no denying the talent that many of these artists display with their work.


Celina Powell spills the tea on explosive Jeffree Star ‘blackmail’

Instagram star Celina Powell has weighed in on Jeffree Star’s drama with ex-boyfriend Andre Marhold in a dramatic Instagram live with her friend Jasmine.

Although Jeffree Star seemed determined to move on from the Marhold drama in his YouTube return earlier this month – wherein he confirmed that his ex was getting prosecuted for ‘robbing’ him – Celina Powell has added another twist in the tale after making a string of dramatic revelations in her Instagram live.

Claiming she had a conversation with Marhold about Star, Powell said the makeup mogul has nineteen cameras in the house, that the ex-boyfriend “wasn’t even gay” and that he was “only there to have fun in his [Star’s] pool”. He also apparently claimed that Star was the one who robbed him, not the other way round.

According to Powell, Marhold accused Star of being racist among other things.

But that’s not all; calling up her friend, who is only identified as Jasmine, the two also claimed that Andre said the relationship “was all for publicity”, and that he even planned to “blackmail” the YouTuber.

Recalling that Marhold also asked her about NDAs, Celina said she told Marhold that “Jeffree can’t do sh*t” and encouraged him to spill the tea.

This led to Marhold to allegedly make a string of other claims, including Star being a “hater”, disliking fellow beauty YouTuber Nikita Dragun and, echoing accusations from fans in the past, being a “racist”.

She then went on to say that she convinced Marhold to fly to Miami in order to help him “expose” Jeffree before turning the tables on him, saying that she went to Star with this information and telling him “this is the scumbags you have in your life”.

In response, Star relayed her the messages that Marhold had sent him, which includes “thirsty” comments like, “I just want to show you that I appreciate you with all my heart”.

“How can you say you don’t care about this man when you do?” Powell asked.

After coming to Star with Marhold’s plans to expose him, Powell claims that he sent her a range of “thirsty” messages that proves he in fact cares for her.

She ended the IG Live by calling Marhold a “f*cking liar”, saying that “everything he says is a lie”.

Both Star and his ex-boyfriend are yet to speak publicly about this latest development in the saga that’s followed their falling out.
