Chrissy Teigen Reveals the Jealous 'Meltdown' She Endured After John Legend Shot a Music Video

Chrissy Teigen Reveals the Jealous 'Meltdown' She Endured After John Legend Shot a Music Video

When you’re as successful, hilarious, gorgeous, and glamorous as Chrissy Teigen, it’s difficult to imagine that there could be another human being on the planet that could truly make you jealous.

Sure, maybe small human jealousy. Like for me, I see someone with a great head of hair and I’m like, “Oh man that’d be great.” Or someone who doesn’t have child-bearing hips and looks like they can fit into a normal pair of pants — I find myself saying, “Must be nice.”

But Chrissy admitted that there was one instance where she hit insane, “meltdown” levels of jealousy when it came to hubby John Legend, and it was all because of a music video.

image

Thankfully, for everyone who follows Chrissy on social media, she was her candid self and was 100% open and honest about her feelings, no matter how shallow and personal, when talking about the embarrassing escapade.

She started the epic Twitter thread with naming the video in question: John Legend’s now decade-old “Green Light” song with Andre 3000.

People immediately reminded Chrissy that it was her least favorite song of John’s, and wanted to know if this was the reason why.

Chrissy admitted that it might’ve had something to do with it, but she mostly just thought that the track was “corny”.

image

Before going on her Twitter tirade, Chrissy went over the details of the video shoot with John to make sure she got her facts straight.

image

Apparently, some of John’s “friends” thought it’d be a good idea to taunt Chrissy with the fact that the woman who plays John’s love interest in the video was very, very attractive.

image

Chrissy was looking at the monitor while the video was being shot and she overheard someone remarking how good John looked with the girl he was dancing with in the video.

image

Which obviously didn’t sit well with Chrissy.

And I mean, could you blame her? Look at how much fun they’re having.

image

The reason Chrissy was doubly jealous was because she, herself, met John while filming a music video with him. She played his love interest, just like this other beautiful girl, so that only added insult to injury.

At that point, it didn’t take much to get Teigen so worked up that she’d snap.

image

And snap she did. Chrissy ultimately had enough of the imagined relationship that she formed between John and the woman playing his object of desire in the video.

image

In defense of past-Chrissy, she was 22-years-old at the time. Most 22-year-olds I know are still on their parents’ cell phone plan and don’t know how to change a tire. So if I saw my man pretending to be affectionate with another woman in the same type of scenario I met him in, I’d probably storm off set in a deluge of tears and self-loathing too.

image

All’s well that ends well, though. Thankfully the little spat only brought the two closer together, and ten years later, they’re still just about the most adorable celebrity couple out there.

This Kid Asked The Rock to Hang Out With Him 100 Days Straight — He Finally Responded

This Kid Asked The Rock to Hang Out With Him 100 Days Straight — He Finally Responded

Not too shabby for an individual who at one point had his dreams of playing pro football crushed. Now everyone in the world wants a piece of The Rock — whether it’s to put him in leading Hollywood films, or just to hang out with him.

Jordan Baker’s the latter. He wants to chill with The Rock so hard that he’s tweeted at him 100 days in a row hoping to get his chance to kick it with the Great One.

The Anderson University college student from Indiana officially began his journey by making his intentions very clear.

image

He thought that maybe coming up with creative photoshops of himself hanging out with Hollywood’s biggest action star would sweeten the deal and finally elicit a response from the People’s Champ.

image

It seemed like each and every day, Baker stepped his game up.

image

He even went so far as to bring fanny-pack Rock into the picture, along with this weirdly poetic-looking meme tweet.

image

When news of The Rock’s new baby daughter broke up, Baker was there to congratulate him and offer a friendship baby-sitting discount.

image

Baker tried every trick at his disposal, even trying to prove that The Rock would fit right in with his current group of friends.

image

He didn’t want The Rock to think he was desperate, so he tweeted at him to let him know that there were some days that were off-limits for them to meet.

image

He ultimately took a break from the photoshops and turned to memes and other methods to entice The Rock to hang out with him – like polls.

image
image

He even turned to this oldie but goodie. Still, no dice.

image

Nevertheless, Jordan persevered. Once word got out of his persistence, Twitter rallied behind him.

image

He kept posting memes and memes.

image
image

Until finally, he reached Day 100. But still there was no acknowledgment from The Rock in sight.

image

People urged him to follow his heart and keep trying.

image

Advice that proved to come at the right time. Because word finally got around to show business’ busiest man and he responded to the hopeful college student.

image

So it definitely wasn’t the response that Baker was hoping for, but maybe he could apply for a job with Seven Bucks Productions and get to hang out with The Rock at work.

Celebrities Who Put a Ring on It This Summer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably caught wind of the long list of celebrities who started dating, like, yesterday and are already posting engagements pics on the ‘gram.

Summer is fun, and love is also pretty cool — so why not combine the two and take the idea of the ‘summer fling’ (so ’80s) into more full-throttle terrain?

At least, that’s what it seems a lot of industry faves decided to get up to this summer. Either that, or someone’s been contaminating the water (lacing it with love potions?) across all of Hollywood.

From Justin Bieber to Ariana Grande, and even Priyanka and Nick Jonas, scroll down to see which of your faves got engaged this summer — and who’s got the dazzling rings to prove it.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

image

Here’s one I’m particularly invested in, having been a longtime Priyanka fan. Baywatch, anyone? 

Although the couple only started dating two seconds months ago, the two have already traveled to meet each other’s families and have been spotted sporting matching gold bands. Wait, what?

Speculation was rampant last month when Nick went to Mumbai, presumably to get permission from her parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage. 

Recently, Nick (who is maybe not even old enough to remember this movie) pulled a total Sweet Home Alabama move when he decided to close down the whole Tiffany & Co. store to pick a ring out (no pics of it yet) for his flame.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

On July 9, after a month of going steady (to be fair, they dated for a bit between 2014 and 2016 before rekindling in June), Justin and Hailey finally made it official. The pop star posted a double-PDA Instagram of Alec Baldwin’s niece sitting on his lap with this relatively spastic caption (but who am I to judge):

Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT! Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!

The accessory she’s wearing on her left hand doesn’t seem to be THE ring, but she did show it off in this pic with fellow celebrity BFF, Kendall Jenner.

Chance the Rapper and Kirsten Corley

This Fourth of July, Chance the Rapper was celebrating more than America’s independence. The 25-year-old musician and longterm girlfriend Kristen Corley, who are parents to 2-year-old Kensli Bennett, got engaged at a backyard barbecue surrounded by family and friends. 

Her account is private so we couldn’t get any close-ups of the jewelry, but from the looks of it, the couple couldn’t be happier. 

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson

image

There have been a lot of internet theories and speculation circulating about these crazy-in-love kids, who started dating mmm… not even two months ago. But it should come as a surprise to no one currently reading this article that they’re currently engaged.

And before the two committed to a social media cleanse that wiped away the entirety of Pete’s page (Ariana just posted 3 minutes ago, though, lol), the SNL actor shared this photo of the three-carat pear-shaped ring he proposed with. Pete is head-over-heels, and has also gifted her his most-prized possession.

Karamo Brown and Ian Jordan

Research shows that no one has ever successfully finished an episode of Netflix’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy without breaking into tears. Let the floods continue: One of the Fab Five got engaged earlier this summer after being together with partner Ian Jordan for the past eight years. 

OK, so these guys aren’t in a race to get hitched and likely know a thing or two about each other. And I’m kind of into these matching black David Yurman bands they’re wearing — white diamonds are so overrated.

Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner

image

Model Karlie Kloss and venture capitalist Josh, of Kushner fame, got engaged earlier this week with a ring that reportedly cost six figures. The couple enjoys their privacy, so it might shock some to hear they’ve been together for six years (quite a long time in celebrity years!). The Victoria’s Secret Angel is so committed to their union that she even converted to Judaism. 

Ahhh! Love in the air and festivities all around.

I’m just holding out for super-private, rumored couple Tessa Thompson and Janelle Monáe to pop the question. After all, Tessa’s already confirmed the two “love each other deeply” and “vibrate so close [they’re] on the same frequency.” 

Sounds like they must have known each other for more than a few weeks to make such sweeping declarations. I can’t wait to see the rings.

This Girl's Younger Brother Made the Sweetest Gesture After Finding out They're Half-Siblings

This Girl's Younger Brother Made the Sweetest Gesture After Finding out They're Half-Siblings

There’s a kind of innocence that little kids have that makes them simultaneously beautiful and infuriating. The frustration is real when they constantly ask you questions they don’t know the answer to. 

In this instance with Twitter user @PamTina_, her “annoying” kid brother was the former: absolutely wholesome and pure.

When Pam’s younger brother discovered that he and his sister aren’t “fully” related, his reaction was an adorable one.

It moved her to tears and left a huge impression, so she decided to share photos of what her brother did on Twitter, where everyone was absolutely in love with his reaction.

image

Growing up, my older brother would joke that I wasn’t really a part of the family: that our mom and dad found me in a garbage can and felt bad for me.

Although I knew he was probably lying, there was still a time period where I believed him — and it got me thinking that he and I are weren’t actually related. Which was a bit comforting at the time, considering how much we were at each other’s throats when we were younger.

I definitely wouldn’t have given my older brother a whole bunch of his favorite snacks, like Pam’s brother did, if I’d found out we were half-siblings.

image

And I most certainly wouldn’t attach a heartfelt letter, either.

image

Her younger brother’s message was an adorably sweet one — he tells Pam, in light of his discovery that they aren’t a fully biological brother-sister duo, that no matter what, how he sees her and feels about her hasn’t changed at all.

They’re 100% siblings in his book, for better or for worse. Here’s his letter in full:

“I just wanted to let you know how much I love you. I don’t care what people say, you are always going to be my sister — my full blooded sister. You are the best thing that happened to me, I love you with all my heart. Thank you for helping me on my worst and thank you for leading me the right way. I will always be there for you, just like you always been there for me. I love you.

With love,

Your annoying brother. <3

image

People were floored by her younger brother’s reaction and got a bit emotional themselves after seeing Pam’s tweet.

image

The tears were flowing for real.

image

Some shared stories of their own sweet younger sibling encounters.

image

And some of the encounters weren’t so sweet.

Like this one woman who asked her younger brother why he didn’t show her love the way Pam’s brother did. The response she got was great, but for an entirely different reason.

image

And although Pam’s interaction with her younger brother was absolutely heartwarming, we all know that different people show love in different ways.

If it’s purity you’re looking for, then this guy’s story about his 8-year-old brother who just learned how to text will melt your heart.

image
image

Or take a look at this girl’s older brother who pranks her mercilessly at every turn.

Ah, youth.

Here's How Today's Lunar Eclipse Will Affect Your Mood

[unable to retrieve full-text content]

image

A total lunar eclipse will be taking place on Friday, July 27 accompanied by a blood moon. This happens about twice a year — and occurs when the moon is completely overtaken by the Earth’s shadow. It’s no surprise that people are convinced that the natural phenomenon has an effect on people’s mood and personality. 

According to ABC Science, 40 percent of the general population believes that “the phase of the moon affects human behavior.” It’s also something most astrologers agree with too,  going as far as to differentiate how each zodiac sign is affected by the lunar eclipse. For Aries, expect those buried resentments and frustrations to come pouring out. If you’re a Cancer, a sexual attraction can turn into a full-blown relationship thanks to the eclipse landing in Aquarius (duh!). 

However, for the most part, the effects of the lunar eclipse are universal. 

But first things first. 

Will you be able to see the lunar eclipse?  

Unfortunately, if you live in North America, chances are you will not be catching a glimpse of the blood moon. Unless you live in Newfoundland, Canada. Everyone else on the planet will get 103 minutes of lunar eclipse glory — the longest of the 21st century — on Friday. However, just because you can’t see the lunar eclipse doesn’t mean you won’t feel its effects.

So, how does the lunar eclipse affect your mood?

According to astrologer Chani Nicholas, eclipses signal a time when our “shadow or unconscious habits” are exposed — making it a perfect time to make important shifts or changes in your life. “This eclipse calls on our ability to witness the difficulties that we come up against. It calls out the aggressive, disruptive, and derailing aspects of life. It is a passionate plea to work through the conflicts of our human experience,” she wrote on her blog. “There may not be much that stays consistent right now, but we can work with this eclipse to become more conscious of the changes we need to make and the fear that comes up for us when we attempt to do so.” 

Astrologer Jamie Partridge also described the lunar eclipse as “emotionally challenging” due to the planet Mars. “Remaining calm in a crisis is the key to dealing with this overly emotional lunar eclipse,” he explained on Astrology King before adding, “With a total lunar eclipse in particular, the blotting out of the Moon represents a resetting of your emotions, clearing away the emotional baggage of the previous six months.” 

Even NASA agrees that lunar eclipses have an effect on people — even if it might be all in their head. 

“There is no evidence that eclipses have any physical effect on humans. However, eclipses have always been capable of producing profound psychological effects. For millennia, solar eclipses have been interpreted as portents of doom by virtually every known civilization,” the organization wrote on its website. “These have stimulated responses that run the gamut from human sacrifices to feelings of awe and bewilderment. Although there are no direct physical effects involving known forces, the consequences of the induced human psychological states have indeed led to physical effects.” 

When is the next total lunar eclipse? 

If you’re one of the unlucky millions in North America, you’ll have to wait until January 21, 2019 for the next total lunar eclipse to be visible. However, if you’re still curious, today’s full eclipse begins at 19:30 UTC for Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America and will last over an hour.

Demi Lovato Used to Be a 'Barney' Girl

Demi Lovato is best known for dominating pop music charts, but the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer has a history in entertainment that pre-dates music videos with Jamie Foxx cameos.

The 2017 Grammy nominee got her start on the big stage at the age of 10 when she realized a dream that made her the envy of kids all over America: being on Barney.

She shared the stage with not just the Purple Dinosaur, but also with her now real-life BFF, Selena Gomez. Look at her being adorable in this throwback photo.

image

There’s a purity and enthusiasm we often associate with children that we don’t with adults — which is why it’s probably jarring for many to see this photo of a happy, young Demi Lovato after the news of the apparent overdose that had her rushed to a hospital.

Lovato was resuscitated and prescribed Narcan, and is currently awake and in stable condition. Fans all over are giving tons of support to the pop star by sharing their stories of how her music helped them get through tough times of their own with the #HowDemiHasHelpedMe hashtag.

image
image

Lovato opened up about her constant struggle with her mental health, something that she says she battled from an early age in a 2013 interview with Cosmopolitan. Yes, even when she was singing the Barney theme song with her fellow cast mates, she dealt with what she describes as overwhelming personal issues, saying that she was “suicidal” as early as age 7.

“At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling. Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who’s ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child’s heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. Even before Barney, I was suicidal. I was 7.”

image

Lovato went on to say that although she was struggling as a child, everyone’s favorite Purple Dinosaur proved to be a strong figure that helped her power through.

“I guess subliminally, I did have a relationship with this figure that was saving my life in a way. I’ve talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I’ve never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out.”

In 2006, Lovato pivoted from the world of light-hearted, children’s TV to dramas with roles in Prison Break and Grey’s Anatomy.

image
image

Lovato went back to the Disney channel when she teamed up with the Jonas brothers for the Camp Rock movies.

image

The films kicked off her music career and helped pave the way for her debut album, Don’t Forget to sell over half a million copies in America alone.

image

Lovato’s early struggles with depression and mental health manifested themselves in more harmful ways later in life. The singer has battled with cocaine use and has reportedly abstained from using the narcotic for the past six years.

image

A source close to Lovato has stated that the singer was not admitted into the hospital for abusing heroin, however, they didn’t state what drug she overdosed on. Many believe that, given her past experience with cocaine, the singer may have broken her cocaine sobriety streak.

Oftentimes those who stay away from using a drug after being addicted for some times overdose easily, as the amounts their bodies were used to taking prior to cutting the drug out were higher than what first-time users would require to get high.

image

Narcan is typically a drug given to those addicted to opioids, like heroin and other painkillers. The drug makes it impossible for the individual taking it to get high off of opiates. The fact that she was administered Narcan means that Lovato more than likely overdosed on a “downer” drug, like Xanax.

Lovato’s recent hospitalization has seen not only an outpour of support, but a greater conversation on the importance of self-care and seeking help.

If you or anyone you know is suffering, have them contact one of the numbers in the tweet above to get help.

Mom Offers to Come to LGBTQ Weddings That Biological Parents Refuse to Attend

It’s 2018, but discrimination against the LGBTQ community is still rampant, and much of it comes from within families. According to a survey from the Williams Institute, 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ, and many of them have been rejected by their parents or caretakers. 

A mom named Sara Cunnigham recently went viral for sharing how she wants to support gay people, after making her own journey to acceptance and understanding of her gay son.

On Facebook, Sara shared a photo of herself in which she’s raising her hand like a volunteer.

image

She captioned it:

PSA. If you need a mom to attend your same-sex wedding because your biological mom won’t. Call me. I’m there. I’ll be your biggest fan. I’ll even bring the bubbles.

Sara is a pastor and LGBTQ advocate, but she told Buzzfeed that when she first learned her son was gay, she wasn’t accepting. She believed he would go to hell for his sexuality.

“I thought, ‘If my son is going to hell for being gay, I’m gonna fight for him like my hair is on fire,'” she said. Since then, she’s learned a lot more about what it means to be gay and her beliefs have shifted.

She continued, “Since then I’ve gotten educated and no longer believe that — so now I’ve [been] fighting for him and the LGBTQ community like my hair is on fire because I’ve seen the power of what fear and ignorance can do.”

Sara is based in Oklahoma and says she has married dozens of same-sex couples in the area since 2016. Her post about showing up as a stand-in mom at weddings has been shared over eight thousand times. 

It’s also inspired a bunch of other moms to volunteer their presence:

image
image
image
image
image

Or a sister:

image

Sara is astounded by the response to her post, which she said was inspired by stories she’d heard from other LGBTQ people.

“The post came from hearing from several same-sex couples — how their parents refuse to attend their wedding, or even acknowledge their relationships.”

She thinks the post’s popularity comes from the good feeling people get from seeing positivity and love in the world.

“People need hope — I sure do — and we need to be that for each other in any way, shape, or form,” she said. “Hope never disappoints.”

Sara has a number of advocacy efforts she works for, like Free Mom Hugs, a club that offers free hugs from moms at Pride events and other gatherings. Sometimes dressed as a dinosaur:

She also works for a group called Serendipitydodah for Moms. The group helps moms organize to offer “small acts of kindness for LGBTQ people in their local area.”

Sara’s faith is obviously very important to her, and she understands why Christian parents struggle to come around to understanding their gay children. She’s committed to supporting that process.

“I’m simply doing what I wish someone would have done when I was trying to figure things out, being a woman of faith and a mother with a gay son,” she said. 

If it helps more parents understand their kids and support them with love, it’s worth doing.

This Girl Had to Get Surgery After Eating Too Many Spicy Chips

When I moved across the country a couple of months ago, I was trying to find a short-term place to stay while I looked around for an apartment to make my home. I’ve gone through my share of shady sublets, and was so worried I wouldn’t land a spot that I started looking for one to book months in advance. On my first day of browsing, I came across a gorgeous and affordable one-bedroom in a really convenient location, but was super skeptical of the post because of how traumatized I am from my previous experiences. 

I’ve dealt with creeps who ask for a cash deposit then claim they’re in the hospital on the exact same day they’re supposed to meet me for the keys. I’ve had people cancel my reservation once I’ve already landed in their city… Needless to say, I’m a seasoned subletter. When I found this lovely one-bedroom on Craigslist, I was sure the listing was too good to be true. So I took a proactively defensive stance when I reached out via email. I asked for boring specifications on the apartment and went over payment details with exhaustive thoroughness. I even asked if a friend could stop by to make sure there were no secret squatter tenants, or anything sketchy like that. Then, I got an email back. 

TWIST: I recognized the address from the gushing fan mail I had sent it years ago. The apartment belonged to my favorite living writer and here I was, casually emailing with her directly. Flash forward a few months and we’re friendly and occasionally email each other or meet for coffee to catch up. And that’s how my nightmare sublet search turned into a friendship with one of the best and most famous writers of our time.

I live for real-life plot twists like this. They keep us on our toes while we cruise through this journey of life. Which is why when u/whytho37 asked Reddit to share their most insane plot twists, the results were incredible. 

Scroll down for twists so good, you wouldn’t believe they actually happened if you saw them in a film.
