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 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.

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

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.

Single Dad Who Went Viral After Mom Abandoned Baby Says the Family Is Done Posting Updates

Single Dad Who Went Viral After Mom Abandoned Baby Says the Family Is Done Posting Updates

I kind of feel like single dads get the short end of the stick. It can be awkward to take your kid to a playground full of moms, or to host a playdate when you know some parents are uncomfortable with the thought of leaving their daughter with just you, a single man.

It’s also true that we’re members of a society that puts single moms on a pedestal while kind of looking down on dads who do the parenting thing on their own. That’s probably why we love stories where single dads triumph over hardship and come out on top. Plus, who doesn’t love it when dads go above and beyond to be loving, caring, and devoted to their kids?

Richard Johnson’s story was one that many parents could identify with, and one that touched many hearts.

Back in 2015, Richard introduced himself to the Facebook group Life of Dad. He wrote,

Life of Dad,

My name is Richard Johnson, and I’m a single father to a beautiful little girl named Persephone. Her mother left about a month after she was born. We still don’t know exactly why, but we suspect post-partum depression played a part. In the first few weeks of it being just her and me, I stumbled upon your page by accident. I was so nervous and scared about being a father in general, but now I was a single father and had to fulfill two roles. I wasn’t sure I could do it.

I had read every “new parent” book I could find and clocked in over 1000 hours in YouTube videos from everything to braiding hair and painting nails to theories on how to deal with common parental issues. I then started to watch your page more closely and saw that there were other fathers out there who were in similar predicaments as me. The page started to turn into a major confidence booster and really helped me through all of this.

I always look forward to photo submissions and reading the stories of some of the awesome dads out there in this community. You truly helped my daughter and me through a very difficult time.

image
We’re both very happy now and continue to grow together everyday. She’s now 10 months, and I now get asked by my friends for parenting advice constantly. We’ve come a long way, my daughter and me, and we definitely owe part of that to this page and the people within it. So from both of us, we wanted to thank you.

Sincerely, 

Persephone & Richard Johnson

The post got close to 100k Likes, and it opened up a conversation where other parents shared their stories. 

A strong community is crucial when it comes to single parenting. After all, as Richard himself explained, it was reading about others in a similar situation that helped him persevere with Persephone in the months after her mom abruptly left. 

In fact, the Life of Dad post got so much attention that Richard posted a heartwarming and vulnerable follow-up about how humbled he was by the internet’s comments. 

“You truly can’t understand how much everyone’s words mean to me. I am constantly criticizing myself on how I can be a better father and this was just the right medicine I needed,” he shared. 

He continues, “The days have been rough and at times I wasn’t sure I could make it another day. I spent more then a few nights holding my little girl as she slept, weeping because I wasn’t sure I was going to be a good enough father for her.”

*cries silently into computer*

The internet displayed such a tenderness and affection for Richard’s story that he decided to start a Facebook page exclusively dedicated to documenting their father-daughter journey.

image

Over the years, Richard has opened up about medical hardships Persephone endured, and how she came out resilient.

“I am proud to announce after a 3 hour long ultrasound, grunts and groans from our Doctor. Miss Persephone Lilith Johnson’s heart is now at 100% health,” he wrote one day.

He even shared some funny memes, proving that he’ll no doubt be a pretty cool dad to grow up around.

image

They celebrated her birthdays in the most adorable ways possible, with her dad — who has an obvious knack for moving us to tears with his words — sharing updates like this one:

One year and 24 minutes ago. My beautiful baby girl was born. She changed my entire life. Breathed new hope into a broken man. Gave me hope for a better future. You calmed a storm within me. I can never understand how such luck was bestowed upon me. I certainly did not deserve it. 
 

Miss Persephone Lilith, you are so deeply loved by so many people. You sparked an incredible amount of hope and love. They say the child learns for the parent, however I feel I am learning more from you than you ever could from me. I look at you and can’t just help feel like everything will work out the way it should. Oh princess, this year with you has head so much for us. We have met so many wonderful and beautiful people. You’ve captured the heart of each. Persephone, I haven’t been the greatest guy for a majority of my life, I was a man you would have not been proud of. I strive everyday to make sure I can be one you’ll be proud of. So you will know without a single doubt in your mind that you are severely loved. 

 I love you so very much. You’re painfully perfect and I just cannot express how grateful I am to have you. 
I’m going to give you the world one day Miss Lilith. I’ll work myself to death to do it. Everything you can ever want will be yours or I’m going to die trying. 
Happy birthday my angel. Don’t ever lose the joy you hold in your heart and never forget to smile.

Love, Daddy.

In the two or so years since she was born, over five thousand people around the world have followed along as she took important calls, put on cool outfits, and ate very delicious food.

image
image
image

We even watched as precious Persephone (Percy, as they occasionally nickname her) got a new mom. In a heartwarming post about a year and a half into running his Facebook page, Richard posted:

“This lovely lady is my girlfriend and Persephone wonderful and gorgeous Mother Jennifer. We’ve waited a while to have anything on this page however Jennifer has been an amazing mother to Persephone.”

He shares how the two met at a mall when she helped him pick clothes for Persephone.

I explained that I wasn’t sure what actually matched and need some pointers considering my own closet had consisted of nothing but black, faded black, and dark black clothes. We had talked for months before I allowed her to meet Persephone. Upon meeting her Persephone had made the choice that this would be her mommy.

Since then, we’ve been witness to some fun family caricatures, Halloween costumes, and hockey games. To all the thousands of followers who have been there from the beginning, the Johnsons feel like family.

Which is why many were sad when Richard revealed earlier this month that he would stop posting on the page.

“It saddens me to announce that we will no longer be updating this page nor responding to anything. We have decided to let the page go silent. I will certainly save everything so Persephone can see everything when it’s finally time to tell her the story,” he wrote. 

image
Most of you have been here from the beginning and all our your heartfelt messages have meant so much to us. However it has come time to let this page go. After recent events, we will not be continuing with the page. We have had an extraordinary journey thus far and it’s certainly not over yet. I’m purging our lives of a few things and realize that would have to include this page.
It’s possible we will pick the page up again some other time down the line. You have all made a “chapter” in the book we call life.

I thank you all again for everything. Take care and keep writing your own story! It’s never truly over.

As Richard shared on his page years ago, “Life isn’t about when the book ends, it’s about how you decide to start the next story in your series.”

We wish you a great next story, Richard and Persephone!

Waitress Throws Gross Customer Like a Sack of Potatoes After He Gropes Her

There’s a certain type of creep who’ll go out of their way to harass or grope waitresses and waiters

I’ll never get people who think that they can invade someone’s personal space without being annoying, rude, or disgusting. Like people who slink up to you and put their arms over your shoulders, or nudge up in your business to see what you’re eating, or look at your computer screen when you’re working when they have no idea if what you’re looking at is something you’d rather people not see. No, I’m not just talking about weird NSFW videos, but yeah, those totally fall under that umbrella as well.

Even worse are those who think it’s OK to just touch/grope you out of nowhere, especially in situations where it’s completely uncalled for. If you’re drunk in a club, and you like the way someone’s grinding on you, you grind back. If you’re partying and vibing with another person, and they start getting handsy and you like it, then get handsy back.

But if you’re a patron at a restaurant, then I’m sorry, but the only thing you should be putting your hands on is a chicken club sandwich, not your server’s butt. 

And because I’m well-endowed in matters of the posterior, I’ve gotten my fair share of booty slaps, and each one got me angrier than the last. People always have the same dumb grin on their face after they do it, too.

image

And as much as I want to knock whoever out unconscious after they put their hands on me, I don’t. It’s a combination of fear and just convincing myself that “it’s not worth it.” But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to see them hurt or watch their hands get eaten by a trash compactor.

That’s why it’s extremely rewarding to see how young waitress, 21-year-old Emelia Holden, takes matters into her own hands after a grabby customer thought he could be slick and pat her butt as he walked by.

image

Holden was busy taking a customer’s order, with her back turned to the grimy groper who tried to cop a feel as he passed by.

Then, this happened.

image
image
image

It takes Holden only a matter of seconds to grab the man’s shirt, put him in a headlock, and then slam him to the floor. His back hits the service cart and gets the attention of other customers in the restaurant.

It didn’t stop there, though. Holden talks to her co-workers and asks them to call the police. 

Holden says that she purely reacted on instinct and did what she felt was best. She also says that she has a message for other women who are subjected to harassment in the workplace:

“I just did what I felt was best. I took the guy down and had my co-workers call the police. All that I want from my experiences is for women to know that it’s okay to stand up for yourself. You have every right to wear what you want and you most certainly have every right to defend yourself.”

image

Holden’s actions led to the perv ultimately getting arrested for his behavior. Once the police arrived and took a look at the surveillance footage in the restaurant, they cuffed him.

“As soon as the cops saw the CCTV footage, they immediately arrested the man. He sat in jail until Monday so in my opinion, he got what he deserved.”

image

Holden isn’t the only waitress who made headlines recently for standing up to a sexually harassing customer.

65-year-old Clarence H. Locke Jr. slapped 23-year-old Denny’s waitress Jayme Adair on the behind after being seated in a booth with his wife. After his spouse went up to use the restroom, Locke went and did this.

The woman from Rome, NY said that she had never encountered sexual harassment in the workplace before and was in “shock” over Locke’s actions.

“I was in shock. I have never had anything like that happen to me before. The customer and his wife came in together. I didn’t recognize him by his face but when he walked in he said, ‘Hello Jayme.’ His wife went to the restroom and I went over and got the couple’s drinks.”

“As I went over to take his order, he reached as far as he could just to reach me and smack my butt pretty hard. I froze up. It was degrading and embarrassing, and completely out of the blue. I froze up. It was degrading and embarrassing, and completely out of the blue.”

“So many women go through this and it is not fair. I did nothing wrong and I did not deserve that.”

image

Locke Jr. could face up to three years in jail as forcibly touching someone is classified as a Class A misdemeanor.

Store Fires Manager After Denying Mother Time Off To Be With Her Son On Life Support

Store Fires Manager After Denying Mother Time Off To Be With Her Son On Life Support

When managing a business, it’s tough finding dedicated workers who you can actually trust and rely on.

Not everyone may take your business as seriously as you and when you’re the boss, it requires you to make tough decisions like having uncomfortable conversations with some employees who aren’t cutting the mustard.

Without going overboard, obviously.

image

And while it’s true that human beings can come up with some of the lamest, off-the-wall excuses to get themselves out of just about anything, like this dude who thought he’d “explain” why he has a hickey…

image

There are some people, however, with legitimate excuses as to why they can’t make it into work. And, as long as you’re not an overbearing boss, you’ll figure out a way to change schedules around and ensure your business is running.

Unfortunately for Crystal Reynolds Fisher, her boss seemingly wasn’t really that understanding of an individual. She informed her she’d have to miss a shift so she could be with her 18-year-old son who was on life support. Crystal’s Boss, Dawn, really wasn’t feeling that excuse.

image

Crystal, who works at a PS Food Mart and Folk Oil Company gas station, had to have her son rushed to the hospital after he suffered a 104-degree fever. She asked her daughter to call out of work for her as she stayed with her son. She recalls hearing her boss on the other side of the line:

“She said ‘can you have somebody cover mom for [Friday], my brother’s really sick, they’re going to have to ventilate him. And the boss, I could hear her over the phone and she told my daughter ‘this ain’t the way we run things, you’re mother needs to be the one calling me.'” Fisher told Fox17.

Fisher learned that her son was suffering from a bacterial infection and was placed on life support. She texted Dawn to let her know of her situation and that she would return to work the second is health began to improve. This was their conversation.

image

Immediately, Dawn tries to convince Crystal that her not showing up to work because her son was on life support was tantamount to her “quitting.” Something that Fisher contested. She notified Dawn she would reach out to corporate and inform them of the way she acted.

image

Still, Dawn did not relent, thinking she was in the right.

image

Frustrated and flustered, Crystal couldn’t believe this response. So she posted the screenshots on her Facebook page and made the post public.

It immediately went viral.

Crystal’s post has been shared over 75,000 times to date, and people reached out to the mom to let her know that what her boss was doing, was in fact, illegal.

In no time, PS Food Mart and Folk Oil learned of Dawn’s behavior and announced that they would be looking into the way she handled her interaction with Crystal.

After conducting their investigation they discovered that Dawn was, in fact, in the wrong, so they announced on their Facebook page that she was fired from the company.

Some people pointed out that there are companies only act in their employees’ best interests when they’re put on the spot, and that they should proactively make sure their employees are taken care of – without a huge social media scandal.

As for Crystal, she only has one message for her former boss: “I pray for you. I pray for you. That’s all I can say.”

Band Sparks Debate On Gender Pay Gap In Music Industry After Firing Their Manager

Band Sparks Debate On Gender Pay Gap In Music Industry After Firing Their Manager

A recent law in the UK stipulates that companies with more than 250 employees are required to reveal gender and wage gap data between all of its workers, and there have been some troubling findings as a result. It confirms the wage gap still exists, despite some companies faring better than others. (Sony Music UK, for example, shared a less than 5% wage gap).

Transparency is the first step in identifying which industries need to address the gaps in pay between genders, which is why many industries with murky and hush-hush compensation policies are so difficult to handle. Like music festivals.

image

This inevitably leads to “unknown” bands being paid less than headlining acts, and at some festivals, nothing at all, for the chance to share a stage with a band that has a huge following. Which is a problematic payment structure to say the least, and could deter many burgeoning new acts who often lose money for a chance to pursue their art. Combine that with the staggering gender-wage gap issues in the music industry, and for artists in general, and it’s not difficult to imagine new, female musical acts losing out on a lot of potential earnings.

The payment structure of music festivals and the wage gender gap became a hotly contested issue on social media when HAIM revealed they fired their booking manager after learning they received 1/10th the amount of a male act at the same festival.

In an interview with Italian magazine, Grazia, Danielle Haim, one of the three sisters who makes up the quartet revealed a familiar struggle that many up-and-coming musicians face when playing festivals with well-known headlining acts:

“We had been told that our fee was very low because you played at the festival in the hope you’d get played on the radio.”

“We didn’t think twice about it, but we later found out that someone was getting paid 10 times more than us. And because of that we fired our agent.”

image

Festivals typically compensate bands with larger followings and a record of consistently high-volume ticket sales more money – even if the acts haven’t put out new music in a while.

image

The Smashing Pumpkins were set to receive $ 1.27 million for four shows played at the 2015 Soundwave Festival in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, and Adelaide. Soundgarden was slated to make $ 2.1 million, Slipknot, $ 1.65 million and Faith No More: $ 750,000.

image

This study analyzed 600 chart-topping hits from 2012-2017. 22% of the songs were performed by female artists, 12% of them were written by women and a dismal 2% were produced by women. The music business beast, from all accounts, is heavily dominated by men.

When it came to the comments regarding HAIM’s festival fees, many of the comments centered on whether or not the band should’ve expected to be paid as much as Muse.

Some claimed that HAIM firing their agent without revealing the name of the band they were getting paid less than doesn’t mean they were earning less because they were female, but because the other band may have been considered a “bigger” draw.

Others are saying that HAIM firing their manager for being paid less at a festival isn’t a “gender issue at all” and more of a question on which band will bring in crowds.

Some argued that HAIM’s demand for fairer pay is less about the economics of music festivals, and more about equality for hard working artists.

HAIM, formed in 2007 was nominated for a “Best New Artist” distinction in 2015 and had two top ten billboard albums with “Days are Gone” and “Something to tell you” in 2013 and 2017 respectively. The band has sold some 330,000 albums worldwide (accounting for CD sales, digital downloads). As of this writing, HAIM accounts for 1,806,293 monthly listeners and their top 10 most popular tracks were played a collective 245,293,775 times.

image

Muse, formed in 1994, has 4 Grammy nominations and 2 wins for Best Rock Album for their 2016 Drones and The Resistance. They’ve sold over 20 million records and have been featured in major studio film soundtracks, most notably the Twilight films. They currently account for 6,452,400 monthly listeners on Spotify and their top 10 tracks were streamed 812,750,854 times. They also are the first band to sell-out the newly renovated Wembley Stadium, which has a 90,000 seating capacity.

HAIM will share the stage with Muse at the end of June at Rock in Rio festival.

Everyone Wants This Guy As Their Teacher After Seeing His Weekend Assignment

Remember being a kid and having insane amounts of homework every weekend that you basically ignored until Sunday night, when you would completely meltdown? It’s called the learning process, and it’s great.

Just kidding! Homework is horrible, and I barely ever retained anything from it, personally. Apparently some teachers are pretty sick of the system, too. Journalist Jane Martin shared a letter sent home with her kid from All Saints’ School in London. In it, a teacher named Mr. Tucker gives very specific instructions for how to prepare for the SATs that she absolutely loved:

It was so important he included a checklist:

They’re well-balanced requirements that include both activity and sitting on the couch:

Candy and friendship:

General chillaxing:

And it has some flexibility, if you want to take an hour break to study:

Mr. Tucker signed off by saying it’s his job to worry about their upcoming test, and theirs to feel good. Wow. 

Mr. Tucker’s approach is in the minority:

And some people are pretty miffed that he would dare to try and make school a more positive experience for this generation:

But actually Mr. Tucker is not the only teacher who thinks stress doesn’t help when it comes to learning. Similar letters have been handed out at other schools:

It’s incredibly refreshing to see schools trying to prioritize letting kids be kids—as long as Mr. Tucker is okay.

He’s fine! Probably.

Girl Gets Fired From Her Job At Target After Prank Goes Viral

Pranks are the worst, but when executed correctly, they can get you a lot of attention. Bad attention.

Twitter user @Delilah810 found this out the hard way, after her “prank” on her best friend in the parking lot of a Target went viral. In it, she pushed that friend, who is sitting in a shopping cart, into a push. It looks pretty gnarly, but the friend was apparently unscathed:

They look like they’re having a blast, to be fair, but it’s a pretty dangerous thing to do. Darn, I sound old!

@Deliliah810’s tweet was doing pretty well already, but then she added an update:

Wow, no kidding.

She seems chill with it, though. Maybe because she’s managed to maintain her friendship, despite everything:

Though many of @Deliliah810’s fans are just run of the mill Twitter users who love a good parking lot disaster vid, there are also a wholllllle lotta people who work at or once worked at Target, too.

Man, if getting thrown into a push is what happens on a work day, what do Target employees get up to at a barbecue?
