Ariana Grande just responded to the tragic death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, by sharing a photo of the late rapper looking up at the person taking it … which appears to be her. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ariana Grande…
Just weeks ago, Kylie Jenner deleted all photos of baby Stormi Webster from her Instagram.
She announced at the time that she wasn’t sharing pics of her daughter, though she didn’t explain why.
Well, it looks like she could no longer resist — because she shared a couple of new precious baby photos. Take a look!
Stormi Webster turned 5 months old on Sunday, July 1.
But fans have not gotten to see baby Stormi since early June. They’ve missed an entire fifth of this sweet baby’s life!
Kylie did not explain her reasoning behind her sudden embargo against her infant daughter’s face, but it is widely believed that she was punishing her fans for conspiracy theories about Stormi’s real baby daddy.
Fans got a look at Kylie’s hot bodyguard and ideas started swirling in their heads.
They noticed that Tim Chung, who is also a police officer with the LAPD, is super hunky.
They also pointed to Stormi’s facial features as “evidence” that she was Chung’s and not Travis Scott’s. Kylie didn’t care for that at all.
But it looks like her resolve has given way — because she shared these two precious pics.
“Nothing better,” Kylie writes under this photo of sweet baby Stormi resting on her.
The photo is cast in pink lighting.
It looks like she may have edited the photo with a pink filter, but Kylie has taken enough pink-lit selfies that we know that she has a pink light in her room.
(Colorful LED bulbs are a great addition to any home; good for Kylie)
Interestingly, Kylie shared the picture on Snapchat. We’ll talk about why that’s interesting in a moment.
First, look at this second, also adorable photo of Stormi sleeping in normal light.
In a cursive font, Kylie captions this darling image with “my little love.”
That is so sweet.
Like we said, both photos were shared via Snapchat.
Several months ago, when Kylie returned from her pregnant hiatus from the public eye, she questioned if anyone even uses Snapchat anymore.
Within 24 hours, Snapchat lost over a billion dollars in value. When they call Kylie an influencer, they’re not joking.
So … is Kylie backing down on her “not sharing” policy?
As cute as those two photos are, we don’t get to see Stormi’s face in them.
In this picture, from two months ago, we get to see Stormi very clearly.
This image, shared to Instagram, was one of those to which fans pointed to draw similarities between Stormi and Tim Chung.
While those comparisons weren’t intended to be malicious — it was part ignorance, part thirst, and part desire for an interesting scandal since Kylie’s life seems so chill.
But it was clearly very hurtful to Kylie.
It may be that her no-Stormi rule was less about punishing fans and more about denying them further ammunition to accuse her of having a different baby daddy.
If Kylie was just trying to keep people from imagining similarities between her baby’s face and her bodyguard’s, then nothing has really changed.
But it may be that she’s easing her way closer to sharing photos of Stormi.
For the record, folks, Kylie has made it very clear that Travis is the father. No one seriously doubts that.
These hurtful conspiracy theories might seem fun to conjure up, but they can hurt Kylie’s feelings. Stormi herself could see them one day. And they really do seem to have some racist undertones. (Yikes!)
What’s more, they could absolutely hurt Tim Chung’s career as a bodyguard … even as the story admittedly raises his profile as a model.
Hopefully, when Kylie once again feels comfortable showing her baby’s face to the world, fans will exercise enough self-control to just admire the baby pictures and leave it at that.
Until then, we still have all of those photos that Kylie deleted.
Many celebrities are known for their eccentricities, so it’s no surprise to hear that Ashton Kutcher had an unusual way of coping with his split from Demi Moore.
Five years later, he’s sharing the details of his odd post-breakup behavior. This doesn’t sound particularly healthy.
In fact, it’s seen him accused of being a “pervert.”
Ashton Kutcher’s fought infidelity accusations now that he’s with Mila Kunis, but he was accused of cheating on Demi Moore during their famous marriage.
Right now, though, he’s opened up about his post-divorce process in an interview with Dax Shepard for the Armchair Expert podcast.
“Right after I got divorced, I went to the mountains for a week by myself.”
Isolation can be healing for some but nightmarish for others. It sounds like he had a good time, though he made some odd choics.
“I went into Big Sky in Montana, and I did no food, no drink — just water and tea.”
That, folks, is not a healthy diet. That is called starvation.
“I took all my computers away, my phone my everything … I just had a notepad and a pen and water and tea for a week.”
If you’re wondering if his diet of literal starvation had any effects, it did.
“I started to hallucinate on day two, which was fantastic … It was pretty wonderful.”
(Gosh, what kind of metabolism must he have if he’s hallucinating after skipping one day of eating? It takes most people longer than that, not that we’d recommend it to anyone)
“I was doing taiji with my own energy.”
Taiji quon, often improperly anglicized as “tai chi,” is supposed to work like that. But you’re not supposed to hallucinate or be malnourished while you do it.
“I was just doing what came to me.”
But his spiritual fitness regiment wasn’t what proved to be so controversial. And neither was his horrifying experimental diet.
“I wrote down every single relationship that I had where I felt like there was some grudge or some anything and then I wrote letters to every single person and sent the letters on day [seven].”
Oh wow. That sounds … intense.
“I typed them all out and sent them. It was almost like an AA exercise, where I was like, ‘I probably have done some damage,’ so I just cleared [my] palate.”
That must have been intense for him to write in his … altered state of mind. It must have been even stranger for these women to have received.
All in all, he says that the experience was “really spiritual and kind of awesome.”
But after he shared this, people took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
“That’s just weird,” wrote one user.
Another wanted to know why he was opening up old wounds:
“And you’re bringing this up now? Why?! Everyone’s moved on. Why talk about this now when so many years have passed?”
That’s a fair question.
But then he also got called a “lunatic” and “pervert.”
That seems … uncalled for, right?
No doctor is going to recommend a starvation diet.
But in general, therapists recommend that if you think that something (within reason) will help you get over a breakup, it’s likely to.
If it’s some sort of fitness regime or spiritual or religious activity (Kutcher sort of fused those), or taking a vacation or sabbatical or even just spending more time with friends, you’re likely to meet your recovery expectations.
However, some folks might question his “making amends” through letters.
First of all, he was in an altered state of consciousness, which is part of some spiritual practices but not an ideal headspace for writing a letter of apology to an ex.
Second of all, in general, not everyone wants your statement of amends. Whether you’re sober or just woke up one day and realized that you were terrible to a lot of people, some find the “amends” process of AA and similar groups to be selfish.
As far as many people are concerned, you had your chance to leave a good impression and you blew it. They don’t want to see your face or hear from you again.
Still, we don’t know that Ashton Kutcher’s alleged cheating or any other behavior really amounts to grounds to call him a “pervert.”
There are lots of fun things about being a celebrity.
Money, fame, adoring fans … what’s not to like?
As it turns out, if you just think about it for a minute, there are actually quite a few things not to like — for instance, all those strangers who feel like it’s OK to criticize you for each and every thing you do.
Sometimes it’s deserved, of course, but a lot of times, haters hate just for the fun of it.
The Duggars know that. They know it very, very well.
To be clear, the Duggars have done several things through the years that deserve heaps and heaps of hate.
That horrible molestation scandal, and the way Jim Bob and Michelle handled it? Despicable.
Josh’s Ashley Madison mistakes and his admission that he was addicted to both sex and porn? Yes, sure, throw all kinds of shade at that.
But a few days ago, Jill posted this photo of her younger son, Samuel, on Instagram:
And surely there are things more deserving of your outrage than this.
“That moment when you hear the rumble and you’re like, ‘oh no! Quick! Stand him upright before he….too late,” Jill captioned the picture.
She added the hashtags “Samuel Scott Dillard,” “Sam the Man,” and “blowout,” just in case you needed a little more information.
The photo is instantly relatable for anyone who’s ever spent any significant amount of time around babies. Things like this happen, and they happen often.
But still, a lot of people feel like, for many reasons, Jill was wrong for sharing this.
“What would possess you to post such a dumb picture, Jill?” one of her followers asked. “Slow day at the house of Derelict Dillweed?”
All right, that’s a pretty solid nickname for Derick Dillard, we’re not going to lie. But things do get a lot worse.
“Why the hell would you post a pic of poop coming thru onesie?” another person asked. “Just another reason showing how you ‘girls’ really don’t have a life outside of being submissive to your hubbys.”
Someone told Jill that her post was “really not in good taste,” and someone else said “Seriously, it’s gross and nobody wants to see that.”
For one of her followers, the picture was simply too much — this person wrote “SMDH – yes quick take a pic post it on social media. Screw the fact he should of been changed.”
“Same as you did to poor Izzy bind him in a blanket let him cry as you take pics to post. Social Media comes before your kids damn Jill you are your parents!”
Way harsh, right?
But honestly, these people are kind of right.
If you’re on social media yourself, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen photos like these — some parents just enjoy sharing things like this.
You’d think that more people would understand that their friends don’t really care to see picture of actual poop while scrolling through their Instagram feeds …
But obviously you’d think wrong.
Still, this is all harmless, and we’re sure precious little Samuel didn’t suffer too much while his mom put off changing him for a second to take this picture.
Though to be clear, it’s definitely gross.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in the homestretch for baby #3’s arrival, and acting like the old pros they are in the birthing game … even though this is their first time using a surrogate. As we’ve reported, the couple’s baby girl is due…
But we’ve noticed lately that there’s been a lull in Ariel’s racier pics.
Is it just because she’s busy, or has all of the hate that she gets for dressing and posing the way that she wants gotten to her, causing her to drop the act for good?
We would hate to think that the haters have won.
Not just because Ariel Winter is, in addition to being a thoughtful and well-spoken young women and a talented actress, super … easy to look upon.
Though that is obviously a factor.
But no one, and particularly not a 19-year-old who has only been able to really live her life for a few years after escaping from a horrible childhood, should have their lives dictated to them by haters.
But trolls like to post hate in her comments, telling her to cover up.
These hateful voices are echoing Ariel’s awful mother, who repeatedly slut-shames her estranged daughter in the media in a transparent ploy for attention.
… All so that she can beg for sympathy and support from her children who, rightly, want nothing to do with her.
While Ariel Winter’s given us a glimpse of herself working out her butt, we haven’t seen much lately on her Instagram. And you can’t tell us that October’s been too cool to wear a bikini.
So … is Ariel going to give in and let haters tell her how to dress?
According to HollywoodLife‘s source, Ariel Winter hears the hate but she’s not going to submit to their demands.
“Ariel tries to ignore all the haters as much as she can, but it does get to her sometimes.”
We’re all that way, right? No matter how strong you are, sometimes it sinks in.
“She’s not going to stop posting whatever photos she wants though, and she knows that trolls are just an inevitable part of social media.”
That is a relief.
Not just that she’s not going to cut out flaunting what she’s got, but that she has a healthy sense of perspective when it comes to trolls, hate, and social media.
She has good reason for not backing down.
“Ariel works really hard to stay in shape, and she’s really proud of all that she’s achieved — she looks and feels amazing.”
We’ve seen some of those workouts and they’re no joke.
“As far as she’s concerned people trolling her Instagram need to get a life, and leave her alone to live hers.”
We absolutely agree.
Ariel Winter has no reason to back down.
Not only does every adult on the planet have the right to show as much, or as little, of themselves as they’d like …
(Provided that the social media platform that they’re utilizing is okay with such photos, but Ariel Winter tends to stay within the realm of what’s appropriate for Instagram0
… But every time that Ariel Winter showcases her peach in daisy dukes or a string bikini and every time that she flashes some underboob or major cleavage, she’s helping to boost her own image as a young actress.
Modern Family might feel like it’s been on television for centuries, but it won’t last forever. She’ll want another acting job after that, and then another and another.
Staying relevant is important, and there’s a reason that — even with controversy included — Ariel gets talked about more than most of her costars.
One thing that haters love to give Ariel a hard time for, aside from daring to be a corporeal being and then having the audacity to take pictures of her body, is her boyfriend.
Levi Meaden only just turned 30 and they’re both adults (and were both adults when they began dating), but people who don’t like the relationship say that the age gap alarms them.
Ariel is also much more famous and more successful as an actress than Levi, which has led to more criticism of their relationship and also to the occasional humiliation rumor about their dynamic.
But Levi is also an actor, and he’s going to be in the new Pacific Rim film (we’re super hyped about that, honestly).
Remember how Anna Faris used to be the more famous one in her (now over) marriage with Chris Pratt? And then he became one of the biggest actors ever.
We never know what’s on the horizon for actors and their careers.
What we suspect is that the people who complain about their relationship don’t really care. They wouldn’t like anyone who was dating Ariel Winter.
Isn’t that sad?
So hey, has anyone noticed that Farrah Abraham has been kind of quiet lately?
Sure, there was that whole thing where she stripped and masturbated on a live stream, but you know what we mean.
Usually we can’t go a day without Farrah doing something dumb — making some ridiculous statement that barely makes sense, posting something dumb on social media.
She’s still doing outrageous things for any tiny little bit of attention she can scrounge up.
That masturbation thing we just talked about, and also her very public vaginal rejuvenation, if you needed any examples.
But other than that, we really haven’t heard all that much from her.
It turns out that she’s been spending a bit of time in Italy with her daughter, Sophia!
Which is nice, right?
Maybe since she’s homeschooling Sophia these days, she’s teaching her some art and history over there.
Stranger thing have happened, probably.
But unfortunately, this strange (relatively) silent streak of hers didn’t last for too long.
Because she shared this photo of herself with Sophia wandering around Italy, and it’s … well, it’s not getting a lot of positive attention, we’ll say that.
Farrah looks OK, even though that red hair is still the worst.
She looks happy and sort of peaceful, which is honestly something we never imagined we’d be able to say about this girl.
But Sophia, bless her heart … that swimsuit looks to be a little too small for her, and the result is that her butt is hanging out of those bottoms.
And according to Instagram, this is very, very bad.
“U need to buy ur daughter clothes that fit her,” one of her followers suggested. “Don’t turn her into u.”
“Do won’t you dress appropriately and teach your poor little girl some values?” another person asked. “So so sad … really poor parenting.”
“Please please have some damn respect for once!” yet another person wrote. “If not for yourself or your daughter, for the culture and country you’re visiting at the time ffs.”
Someone really went in for the kill, telling Farrah “Just cuz your parents exploited you doesn’t mean you have to do the same. You know good darn well u saw your kid’s butt in the background cuz we did and we ain’t even the mama.”
And if that wasn’t savage enough, she also received the comment “I’m sure daddy Derick is just flipping in his grave. Poor kid!”
Some Farrah defenders — believe it or not, she does have some actual fans — theorized that perhaps she simply didn’t notice the wardrobe malfunction.
But she posted a similar photo in her Instagram story with the caption “Suns out, buns out,” so that theory’s pretty much out the window.
It’s just … why is it so hard for her to be a decent person?
Why does it seem downright impossible for her to just avoid doing things like this?
Unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on how you look at it — the world may never know.
Robert Pattinson is so great, right? So adorable and funny and just so, so good.
But there's no denying that he's come a long way since he first appeared on our radar as the brooding, creepy, glittery vampire in Twilight.
These days, Rob is in a very different place in his life, and in his career, too.
For instance, instead of doing film adaptations of dumb teenage fantasy books, he's doing critically acclaimed movies in which he may or may not have sexual relations with dogs.
Confused? It's OK, so are we.
But good ol' Rob explained the whole sketchy story on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
He was there to promote his new movie, Good Time, which premieres next week, and at one point, Jimmy brought up a story about a dog in the movie.
At first, Rob doesn't want to get into the story — as he explained, it may not have technically been legal — but later he relents.
And the story sure is a doozy.
As he says, his character in the movie "has this affinity with dogs," and he actually "thinks he is a dog in a previous life and he thinks he has control over animals."
"There's this one scene we shot," he continued. "There's a drug dealer who busts into the room, and I was sleeping with the dog and basically giving the dog a hand job."
… And there it is.
It seems like Rob was a little hesitant about actually doing the deed, and thank goodness.
"I asked the trainer because the director was like, 'Just do it for real, man! Don't be a pussy!'" he recalled.
"And the dog's owner was like, 'Well, he's a breeder. I mean, you can. You just gotta massage the inside of his thighs.'"
But in the end, he refused to go through with it, and the crew made a fake dog penis to use for the scene instead.
Because this is the world we live in.
Really, it's nice that Rob refused to do a scene like this — as he said, it could very well be illegal, but even if it's not, it's disgusting and wrong.
We're proud of him. honestly.
But still, it still feels like it would have been better if no one had ever learned this horrific story.
Here, go ahead and scar yourself by watching the video below:
Kim Kardashian really is a changed woman.
And this is very bad news for horny young men around the globe.
Just over two years ago, Kardashian crossed the 27 million follower mark on Instagram and celebrated with a seductive photograph of herself in bed.
“27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!!” Kim captioned the very sexy snapshot in February of 2015.
When her follower count subsequently climbed to 42 million, Kardashian dropped a MASSIVE cleavage selfie on fans in recognization of the achievement.
When she hit 45 million not long afterward?
You guessed it: more cleavage!
But that was before Kim was a mother of two.
It was before she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris this past October and forced to truly re-evaluate nearly every aspect of her life.
Kardashian has understandably become far more guarded since this incident and, by extension, far more clothed.
Earlier this week, she accomplished a true Instagram feat, becoming just the sixth person to reach 100 million followers.
However, she didn’t strip down in celebration. She didn’t show off her boobs. She chose to show off her family instead.
“I CAN’T BELIEVE I’VE REACHED 100 MILLION FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM, THANKS TO YOU GUYS!!!” she wrote as a caption to the above family portrait on her official website.
“TO CELEBRATE, I WANTED TO TAKE A LOOK BACK AT MY MOST-LIKED POSTS. I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS SO MUCH, MORE THAN YOU KNOW,” Kim added.
On Instagram itself, meanwhile, Kardashian not only didn’t reward followers with a new naked selfie.
She didn’t even feature a new picture of herself!
She went with the following image of daughter North West and wrote as another caption:
“She has no clue what 100 million followers means but she’s excited cause i’m excited lol thanks for the follows and the love.”
This brand new Kim Kardashian is probably good for the reality star’s mental health.
But is it good for her future as an actual reality star? Can a buttoned-up, responsible, conservative, more private Kim Kardashian remain a legitimate A-Lister?
No. Not if the failing ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians are any indication.
After the aforementioned robbery in Paris, Kim stepped fully away from the spotlight.
She didn’t share anything at all on social media and she didn’t go out in public.
Following several weeks of being on a self-imposed lockdown, however, Kim re-emerged little by little, posting various pictures of her husband and children at home.
“It was time for Kim to get back on social media and back to work,” an insider told Entertainment Weekly in January, explaining:
“That is a huge part of her career. She has obligations to support her family and has an entire team working for her. It was time to get back to normal.”
Well, not normal.
Normal would have previously meant a Kim Kardashian nude spread in honor of this social media milestone.
The new Kim Kardashian normal is a portrait of her loved ones.
We’re sorry, fellas. But you had to know this day was coming sooner or later, robbery or no robbery.
As for where Kardashian stands in the grand scheme of Instagram, she still has a ways to go before she can threaten Selena Gomez as the most popular user.
That singer is the most followed person on the platform by far, with approximately 120 million fans.
She is followed by: Ariana Grande at 105 million; Taylor Swift at 102 million; Beyonce and Cristiano Ronaldo, both at 101 million; and then Kim.
Kardashian is a solid 20 million followers ahead of the next person in her family, however, although we could actually see Kylie Jenner catching up someday.
She has her own reality show coming out and she remains very open to taking nearly everything off on a weekly basis.
That’s a tough combination. It’s one Kim can’t really compete with these days.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on both Instagram accounts to see if Kylie can someday usurp her sibling. Stay tuned!
Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid and a bunch of their model friends are all into sharing … jet skis in their bikinis … but you won’t be able to find them. Kendall and the gang posted a ton of hot pics Tuesday of themselves on a…
