When Big Butts Kill: A Woman Reveals Her Experience With Illegal Butt Injections

Some women get their butts enhanced illegally and actually live to tell about it. We caught up with a 29-year-old New Jersey clothing boutique owner who got shots of an unknown substance to enhance her derriere at some random woman’s house. The woman, Anivia Cruz-Dilworth was arrested late last year for botched surgeries, which landed several women in the hospital with serious complications.

As far as our boutique owner, who chose to remain anonymous for this interview, she has had her bigger butt for over a year and a half without any complications but she regrets having gone through with it despite increased attention.

Here she explains how pop culture’s obsession with women like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez lead her to getting shot up with some unknown liquid that was in a Poland Spring bottle.⎯Starrene Rhett

What procedure did you have done?

I got injections.

Is that the hydrogel?

We don’t know what it is, she went to jail for⎯it was about 9 people that she did and they ended up in the hospital.

You didn’t even go to a licensed surgeon, this changes everything!

No. We’re really talking about what’s going on in the street right now. I was in NJ. What’s going on over here is that girls want bigger butts. People are doing their butts over here and I don’t know what she was putting in it they said it was something that had to do with cement from home depot and she was injecting it into people and she⎯it was 7 months ago because she got locked up recently and charged wit malpractice. If you look on the Internet you’ll see the article, you’ll see her picture.

So it was someone different who did the British girl who died recently, right?

I know of that but it’s not her but all of them are using the same things to inject and with the British girl it didn’t go well with her body system. It broke down her body and the rest of the girls [in NJ]⎯one they were doing butt injections at the back of the salon and I guess they were finished and as they were walking to the door somebody burst open.

Wow, so you’re one of the lucky ones.

Yep. I’m one of the lucky ones. I don’t know what she put in me and I just had a tragic accident in October where I broke my neck front and back. I broke my c4 and my c5. I was in Miami on vacation and I got in the car with my sister’s friend and he was drinking and he flipped the jeep 5 times and they had to cut me out the back so I don’t think anything abnormal is in me because I had to do two surgeries and they went through my whole body and didn’t see anything abnormal. But some people use⎯like, there’s a guy in Jersey who uses animal fat and injects girls with it and Anivia, the girl who was doing everyone⎯she was using⎯you know the lining of the walls that you use to cement⎯that clear stuff? She was using that. You can find her all over the Internet, just look up “injections,” they’re from New Brunswick. She did about 20 people that got sick.

How much did you pay?

It’s $500.

That must have been a significant step down from what a surgeon would charge.

Yes. If you did the natural surgery it would have been like $3,500.

So why would you go to an unlicensed woman not knowing anything about her or what she uses?

My friend did it and she looked good. I mean, I already have a butt but I guess it was vanity. A lot of people say that people don’t pay attention to things but it’s⎯you know how you see all these videos with women with the big booties? It’s like I need to have a big booty for somebody to want me⎯well that’s the concept I get from the whole thing and that’s where that came in. everybody is seeing all these people with big booties on TV and they want it so I found a way to get it, not knowing that it can make you sick.

Ebro Calls Out Kodak Black For Sexual Assault During Interview

The Internet's latest victim of unwarranted hate is Ebro Darden, host of Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning. currently awaiting trialThe Internet is split on Darden's attempt to try to discuss Kodak Black's sexual assault allegations. He is for charges of criminal sexual conduct from a sexual assault indictment in 2017.

During the rapper's visit to the radio show on Wednesday (Dec. 12), everything seemed fine and dandy. However, around 15-minutes in, Ebro brought up the Floridian's current sexual assault case.

“Look man, at this point, it’s a pleasure to meet you man,” Ebro says near the 15-minute mark of the 17-minute interview. “You know, looking at all your cases and everything you’ve been through, and I know the recent one right now is very sensitive. Respect to everybody involved in that case, we can’t get into details today… We take sexual assault here serious. We can’t get into details, but we hope to have you back, so that we can have a deeper conversation about that. It’s a serious topic, we’re hearing these stories a lot."

Peter Rosenberg swiftly tries to deflect from the conversation by asking Kodak if the moon landing of 1969 was a conspiracy. However, Ebro brings up the musician's clear anxiety over the fact that he brought up the case.

"I feel like sometimes, when n***as like me are going through sh*t, y'all be entertained," says Kodak as he squirms in his chair. "Like, change the subject... talk about something else." Ebro then brings up that they tried to change the subject, and if there's nothing left to discuss, the interview could be over. At that point, Kodak gets up from the mic and walks away.

On Twitter after the interview began to gain virality, Ebro wrote that he did not discuss any specifics about the case, and that he was just trying to have a "balanced" conversation. While many members of the Twittersphere are praising Ebro for attempting to have a conversation about the elephant in the room, others are calling him out for "baiting" and bringing up something that "he shouldn't have brought up."

What are your thoughts?

I was tryna have a balanced convo with Kodak Black & not ignore the serious allegations against him but also not ask specifics to make his situation worse... and he wanna get an attitude with me?? Nah....

Sir Elton John Covers Khalid's "Young Dumb And Broke"

Khalid has had the opportunity to cover songs from some legendary musicians like Tracy Chapman. Now, the tables have turned. Sir Elton John recently covered the Texan’s 2017 hit “Young Dumb & Broke.”

The “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” musician reworked Khalid’s American Teen track for the Spotify Singles series. In a statement, he praised the young musician’s growth, and he called the song “one of [his] favorites.” Khalid can be heard at the end of the Elton version singing along.

“I discovered Khalid’s music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since,” Sir Elton wrote. “We finally met when I played his home town of El Paso last year. It’s a thrill to be a small part of any new artist’s journey, and it’s been wonderful to see his star continue to rise and rise. ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ is a fabulous song, one of my favorites, and I’m really pleased that he liked my cover enough to contribute vocals.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Sir Elton has praised members of the newer generation of music. His song “Rocket Man” is sampled in Young Thug’s On The Rvn EP. In the past, he’s sung Thugger’s praises, namely in a 2015 interview with Noisey, where he noted he enjoyed how he pushed the boundaries of hip-hop.

'Sesame Street' Praised For The Inclusion Of Homeless Character

Sesame Street continues its crusade to include statement-making characters on their block. This time around, families will be introduced to Lily, the show’s first homeless character.

According to USA Today, Lily- an adorable hot pink, red haired puppet- was first introduced to the show in 2011, but in new online clips, Lily opens up about being homeless and staying with friends.

"Now we don't have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we'll ever have our own home," she says to Elmo in one clip. In her initial appearances on the show, Lily discusses her family’s food insecurities, meaning they didn’t have much to eat.

“We know children experiencing homelessness are often caught up in a devastating cycle of trauma – the lack of affordable housing, poverty, domestic violence, or other trauma that caused them to lose their home, the trauma of actually losing their home, and the daily trauma of the uncertainty and insecurity of being homeless,” said Sherrie Westin, President of Global Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.

“We want to help disrupt that cycle by comforting children, empowering them, and giving them hope for the future," she continues. "We want them to know that they are not alone and home is more than a house or an apartment – home is wherever the love lives.”

In recent years, Sesame Street has introduced a slew of ground-breaking new characters, including Julia, a puppet with autism, and Alex, a character whose father is incarcerated.
