from 2021, LEGO plans to work closely with the geena davis institute on gender in media and UNICEF to ensure its toys and marketing are‘accessible to all and free of gender bias and harmful stereotypes’. the danish toymaker will no longer market its products based on gender, removing phrases like ‘for girls’ or ‘for boys.’ the announcement comes after a new research it commissioned that reveals that girls today feel increasingly confident to engage in all types of play and creative activities, but remain held back by society’s ingrained stereotypes as they grow older. the study was carried out by the geena davis institute in recognition of the UN’s ‘international day of the girl’ (october 11) and to mark the launch of ‘ready for girls’, a new LEGO campaign to celebrate girls who rebuild the story of old-fashioned gender norms through creative problem solving.

the ‘ready for girls’ campaign aims to help girls rebuild the story, ensuring they aren’t losing out on the benefits of LEGO play due to societal expectations. the company vows to ensure any child, regardless of gender identify, feels they can build anything they like, playing in a way that will help them develop and realize their unique talent. the LEGO group acknowledges that boys are also battling prejudice when it comes to creative play and playing with toys that are traditionally seen as being for the opposite sex. 71% of boys vs. 42% of girls say they worry about being made fun of if they play with a toy typically associated for the other gender.

Maluma Explains How Working with Madonna Changed His 'Vision': I'm 'More Confident'

PEOPLE 12 October, 2021 - 11:40am

The "Sobrio" singer, 27, revealed the impact Madonna, 63, has had on him, both personally and professionally, in a Musicians on Musicians chat for Rolling Stone, noting that the star "changed [his] vision in many ways."

"I'm still young and I'm still learning a bunch of things in this industry and my career, but it was an important thing to just be more confident in myself," he told Madonna. "Since I met you, that's something I always do, and I really appreciate that. Cheers."

The pair first met at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, and collaborated on the single "Medellín" off Madonna's 2019 album Madame X. Since then, the "Like a Prayer" singer has instilled in Maluma (real name: Juan Luis Londoño Arias) a few other pointers.

"I hope that after you worked with me, you started paying more attention to lighting and costumes and things like," she said, to which Maluma confirmed that he had, in fact, started paying more attention.

Elsewhere in their chat, Madonna — whose documentary Madame X was released last week — revealed that she's hard at work writing a script for an upcoming movie about her life, something she said has been an incredibly taxing process.

"Writing my script is the most draining, challenging experience I've ever had. It's kind of like psychotherapy in a way, because I have to remember every detail from my childhood till now," she said. "I realize I forgot a lot of things, and reliving, digging deep, trying to recall emotions that I felt in certain moments, both joyful and traumatic experiences… I realize I've lived a crazy life."

She continued: "But I would find myself at night, lying there in bed, thinking, 'My God, did that really happen to me? Did I really know that person?'"

Maluma, meanwhile, teased a new era of music for fans, one that would incorporate a sound different to that of his last EP, the Jamaica-inspired #7DJ (7 Días En Jamaica).

"I'm planning on doing my next album with different African artists," he said. "I feel that's the future in urban music and Latin American music. That's the next step for me."
