Joe Rogan’s diet and lifestyle is often the subject of scrutiny from his millions of fans, as his JRE podcast regularly puts a focus on personal wellbeing. He has now explained why he supplements testosterone, citing the myriad health benefits it apparently gives.

The podcaster and UFC commentator has been very open about his personal health journey, documenting his meat-only diet, which he is now back on – despite the side-effects he reported in 2020.

He’s now also delved into another unique aspect of his diet, which includes supplements for testosterone. Speaking with comedian Tony Hinchcliffe in his Spotify podcast, Rogan cited age as one of the primary reasons.

Joe Rogan is back on his Carnivore diet in January 2021.

“As you get older, your body is going to produce less hormones. You can either accept that, which many people do,  you can be embarrassed about wanting to replenish your hormones, as many people are,” Rogan starts.

“[People] are embarrassed about admitting it, they’re embarrassed about discussing it, they want to dismiss the idea they would ever do it.”

His reasoning for taking these supplements is “really simple,” pointing to the fact that many “jacked doctors” he had spoken to recommended it.

“It’s really simple – I want my body to work better, I want it to perform better,” Rogan continued. “So I talked to doctors, and I like to talk to jacked doctors. The doctors that I know, that work in hormone replacement, they’re all like in their 60s, and they look like they’re in their 40s.”

Topic starts at 34:00

But, it’s not as straightforward as simply adding in supplements to your existing diet. Rogan explains that there are a number of important checks to be completed first.

“First, you go to a really good doctor, you get your bloodwork monitored, you find out what your hormone levels are right now. First thing they do is adjust your nutrition, they want to make sure you’re eating healthy food.”

In addition to diet, the amount of sleep you get is also crucial in the determination of hormone supplements. At 53 years old, Rogan’s lifestyle is perhaps testament to the success the supplementation of hormones is having.

He explains that he is still weight lifting regularly, and attends kickboxing classes. “When I was a kid, 53-year-olds were barely alive,” he concludes.

Joe’s podcast episodes are now exclusively available on Spotify, although he does upload small segments to his YouTube channel, where he still boasts over 10 million subscribers. His move to Spotify is still drawing the ire of some regular listeners though, who are letting him know all about it.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
