Actress and philanthropist Bella Thorne aligns with hemp clothing line DRIHP
Actress and philanthropist, Bella Thorne aligns with clothing line DRIHP. In addition, influencer Rachel Cook and model and social media personality, Jay Alvarrez have come on board as Brand Ambassadors for the new environmentally-safe hemp line. The line officially launched Saturday, May 30, 2020 on their website. DRIHP was founded by millennial entrepreneur, Luke Dandrea, who is also the founder of the revolutionary hemp flower, hemp seed and hemp crop insurance company, Clone Connect.
DRIHP is more than eco-friendly hemp apparel; DRIHP is a movement that Dandrea hopes will be a launching pad to help save the planet! With its multiple uses, Dandrea’s mission is to educate the consumer one product at a time on how industrial hemp is the game changing component in the science of global warming. One of the many uses of industrial hemp is textiles, which is what DRIHP is focused on. The fibers from the stalks of a hemp plant create eco-friendly hemp apparel and the H in DRIHP stands for Hemp. DRIHP textiles use 1/20 of the water that is required to grow and process traditional cotton fabrics. The line will carry men and women’s clothing and accessories. DRIHP is currently giving away 20,0000 breathable and stylish hemp face masks to customers that go to the website and sign up.
When Dandrea wanted to build out the idea of launching the first major hemp apparel and accessories brand, he approached Barrett Wissman, Chairman of IMG Artists and principal of the social media management firm Two Pillar Management to build out and manage the company as well as engage his higher end talent such as actress Bella Thorne and influencers Jay Alvarrez, and Rachel Cook to be the first ambassadors for the brand.
Stated Wissman, “It has been an honor to help build out a company that is not only launching a new, cutting-edge fashion brand, but one that is at the forefront of a new environmental movement.”
Thorne a long-time cannabis enthusiast is the co-founder of her own very successful cannabis and CBD brand line called Forbidden Flowers, which launched through Glass House Group in October 2019. Understanding the history of hemp, she thought it was important to jump on aboard to this project to help educate her fans, etc. about the environmental benefits of hemp and clear up some of the misconceptions of placing hemp in the same category as cannabis.
“It’s important for me to use my voice to spread the beauty and knowledge of this world. It was mind blowing to find out that so many people when you discuss hemp put it in the same category as cannabis,” stated Thorne. It was crazy to watch how their minds would automatically shut down to the concept. When Luke approached me about DRIHP, I was like, yes, yes… Let’s save the planet dude and let’s educate the world on this wonderful, amazing product, that we can make clothes out of, build houses with, eat when we are hungry, the uses for it are virtually limitless! Hemp is the answer to saving the planet and I am stoked to be able to play a small part of that education. If you can change one person’s mind… you can help change the world.”
“Bella bleeds authenticity and so does the brand. She caught on immediately. Jay set the foundation early on and realized his platform was ready to learn about environmentalism,” stated Dandrea on the collaboration with Thorne and Alvarez.

DRIHP is an industrial Hemp, environmentally safe apparel line founded in 2020 by entrepreneur Luke Dandrea. The H in DRIHP stands for Hemp and it’s called DRIHP because Hemp uses 1/20 of water compared to cotton to grow and process. In addition, a Hemp plant is the fastest CO2 to biomass conversion tool. In fact, one acre of Hemp produces more of the air we breathe than 25 acres of trees. Most products made from wood can be made from Hemp, which would reduce deforestation. DRIHP is more than apparel line… it is a CONCEPT of Life. It’s not about selling a shirt; it’s about educating that masses that Hemp can make for a better world When something is so new and or “reborn” such as Hemp, it requires those who understand to educate.

Katy Perry returns with her second single of 2019, “Small Talk.” The sparkling track is a poignant acknowledgement of the emotional distance that develops after a break-up, with Katy observing, “We had conversations about forever now it’s about the weather okay/I just can’t believe/We went from strangers to lovers to strangers in a lifetime.”
She wrote “Small Talk” with Johan Carlsson, Charlie Puth and Jacob Kasher Hindlin. Johan Carlsson and Charlie Puth produced the track with Peter Karlsson producing the vocals. Download / stream “Small Talk” HERE. View the lyric video HERE.
“Small Talk” follows Katy’s summer hit, “Never Really Over,” which marked her first new solo music since 2017. “Never Really Over” was the biggest streaming launch of Katy’s career and has been certified Gold. Hailing it as a “euphoric breakup anthem,” PAPER proclaimed, “Katy Perry Is Back and Better Than Ever.” Views of the accompanying video have surpassed 80 million.
Earlier this week, Katy was awarded a plaque commemorating 100 million RIAA song certifications. She is one of only five artists in history to have topped 100 million certified units with their digital singles – and the first-ever Capitol Records recording artist to join the elite RIAA 100 Million Certified Songs club.
Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010), which made her the only female artist (tied with Michael Jackson) to have five No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (“California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.” and “Last Friday Night”). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide.
Katy Perry’s fourth studio album, WITNESS, debuted in June at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, and No. 1 on iTunes in 46 countries.

The certified Platinum lead single, “Chained To The Rhythm,” has over 1 billion streams worldwide, views on the accompanying video made her the most-viewed female artist on VEVO. Follow-up singles, “Bon Appetit” (whose music video was Katy’s fastest viewed music video of all time, with 14.2 million views in the first 24 hours) is certified Gold, and “Swish Swish” is now certified Platinum. Globally, it has achieved more than 2 billion cumulative streams and sold more than two million adjusted albums.

She is one of only five artists in history to have topped 100 million certified units with their digital singles – and the first-ever Capitol Records recording artist to join the elite RIAA 100 Million Certified Songs club. Katy’s 2015 Super Bowl performance is the highest-rated in the event’s history. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter, and the first to surpass 100 million followers. She was the first female artist to have four videos surpass a billion views each. Her videos for “Firework” and “Last Friday Night” have over one billion views, while “Roar” and “Dark Horse” have surpassed the two billion mark.
Aside from being one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, Katy is an active advocate of many philanthropic causes.

From traveling to Vietnam and Madagascar to highlight the needs of some of the world’s most vulnerable children, to recording PSAs about the importance of empowering girls and supporting adolescents living with HIV/AIDS, as well as raising awareness for UNICEF’s emergency relief efforts, Katy has used her powerful voice to advocate for children and support UNICEF’s mission to ensure every child’s right to health, education, equality, and protection. She was awarded with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award in 2016.
