If there's one thing you can say about the Kardashian/Jenner clan, it's that they know how to keep the public enthralled.

No matter how many times you insist you're done keeping up with them, something will always happen to draw you back into their world.

And, unsurprisingly, the best place to hang out during these times is with like-minded folk on Twitter.

So, when word landed last night that 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is reportedly pregnant with her first child, Twitter went into meltdown, and everyone grabbed the popcorn.

While the young businesswoman and reality star has yet to confirm the reports which are currently circulating all over the world right now, social media users are wasting no time sharing their thoughts on the supposed pregnancy.

Here is just a glimpse of what you might have missed so far…

It was a stand-out moment at this year's Video Music Awards, and Fifth Harmony no doubt knew they would be forced to explain the presence – and sudden disappearance – of a fifth member during their highly-anticipated performance.

Watching the group take to the stage on Sunday night, audience members and TV viewers were surprised to see the foursome appear on stage alongside a fifth person.

Did Camila Cabello, who left the group last year, experience a change of heart? Had Ally, Normani, Dinah and Lauren recruited a new member?

Before viewers could speculate themselves into a frenzy, the fifth member quite literally jumped backwards off the stage, leaving the four remaining members to bring it on home.

Understandably, social media went into a tailspin, as fans of the band wondered whether they had just thrown some spectacular shade at Camila – something which they addressed while appearing on Good Morning America this morning.

Acknowledging the drama surrounding their performance, the ladies said: "We get asked all the time if we’re getting a fifth member and we wanted to show the world in an artistic way that, hey, the four of us are Fifth Harmony."

Speaking to host Lara Spencer, the ladies insisted that there was no need for the addition of a fifth member, and they hoped their performance would put the speculation to bed for good.

"We’re stronger and better than we’ve ever been — and honestly it was such a monumental moment for us. We were at the VMAs! We had rain! We had splits! We had a mic drop!"

And that's our cue to stop wondering whether Camila will be making a return, right?

As the viewing public geared up for the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother, there seemed to exist a general consensus that as contestants go, Girls Aloud member, Sarah Harding, was up there with some of the most high-profile.

Bearing that in mind, it's perhaps no surprise that the singer's time in the house has been under serious scrutiny from fans of the show, and it's fair to say that the former popstar has garnered her fair share of headlines in a relatively short period of time.

The latest controversy to surround Sarah is the suggestion that she 'slut-shamed' Fifth Harmony in a conversation with fellow housemate, Chad Johnson.

Claiming that the Work From Home singers 'wear next to nothing' on account of the fact 'sex sells', the 35-year-old came in for a barrage of criticism from fans of the US girl band.

And now Instagram is fairly sure that Sarah's former band mate, Nicola Roberts, has shaded the Celebrity Big Brother contestant in a recent social media post.

Sporting a cap emblazoned with the caption 'Women in Music Are Dangerously Underestimated', Nicola added her own message, writing: "And that's why we have to support each other."

 

And that's why we have to support each other.

Nicola's timing with her post provided her followers with ample opportunity to suggest that the 31-year-old was aiming her message at her former bandmate.

"Good for you Nicola for being against slut shaming unlike Sarah who slut shamed on TV," wrote one of Nicola's followers.

"Yes women empowerment," added another. "No slut shaming here."

However, not everyone is impressed by Nicola's post, with some fans of the singer berating her for not showing Sarah more support during her stint on the controversial reality show.

"This is insensitive, you should be supporting Sarah," wrote one while another added: "No support for Sarah.. Good call NOT… Team Sarah."

We wonder if Cheryl will throw her a like…

Among the flurry of thinly-veiled sexist remarks Piers Morgan made after seeing an un-airbrushed photo of a bikini-clad Kim Kardashian this week, he did utter one sentence which is worth remembering.

In reference to cellulite which could be seen on Kim's thighs if you were so inclined to search for it, Piers said: "Accept it."

Yes, he dismissed the notion that dimpled thighs should be celebrated, but he did suggest something many of us have been refusing to do when it comes to our litany of perceived 'flaws'.

Accept it, and get over it.

While his intention clearly wasn't to buoy the female population or offer any form of support when it came to issues surrounding body image, he did, albeit inadvertently, remind us that there are – among myriad other things in this life – some things we have to just accept.

And there's a lot to be said for finding the confidence to do just that.

As many women will attest, railing against 'flawed' body parts is draining beyond all measure.

Fixating on 'imperfections' is exhausting.

And attempting to conceal areas of your anatomy that haven't had the photoshop treatment is a surefire way to sap yourself of self-confidence, self-assurance and self-worth.

So maybe Piers, in this instance, is right.

Few of us have reached the celebratory stage of cellulite, but even less have reached the acceptance stage, and desperately attempt to fix, conceal or apologise for its presence.

While his distaste over Kim's unphotoshopped physique was far from subtle and his disregard for his female co-host's praise blatant, the 52-year-old did provide a kernel of advice…whether he realised it or not.

And while he did – following his televised remarks – take to Twitter to hammer home the notion that cellulite is a 'flaw', we'd do well to focus on the brief tip he did mention.

Flaw or not, it is  – as something many women sport – something we need to accept, because hey, for most of us it's here to stay.

Yes, the nugget of advice was fleeting. Yes, it was bookended by other remarks which suggest Piers needs a lesson or two in diplomacy. And yes it did remind us that when it comes to certain matters, Piers is far from an oracle.

But just like Kim's cellulite, if you were inclined to search for it, it was actually there.

Fans and followers have flooded the star's page with messages of congratulations, with one writing: "I'm truly genuinely happy for you and your family!! I can't wait until you meet your little one."

Serena announced her pregnancy last week with a Snapchat of her bump and the words: "20 weeks."

It’s been five years since The Killers released their last album Battle Born, but the wait for new music may finally be over!

According to NME the band have been working on a new album since last September with none other than U2 producer Jacknife Lee, and have revealed that the band are ‘nearly there’ with their latest instalment.

Speaking to the magazine backstage before their set at the Pa’l Norte festival in Mexico, drummer Ronnie Vannucci revealed that the band had struggled to reinvent themselves.

“We have a problem with taking two steps forward and one step back, so that makes it take longer. We keep asking ourselves: ‘What does a four- piece band do? How do you keep it fresh?’ It’s a constant exercise in experimentation.”

Fans can expect to hear a different side to the band with front man Brandon Flowers saying the new songs were ‘the heaviest thing they’ve ever done‘.

The lads also confirmed they would be performing some of the new material at their upcoming headline show at London’s Hyde Park where they’ll be joined by the likes of Elbow, Tears For Fears and White Lies.

So, if you’re lucky enough to have a ticket, get ready for a sneaky preview of what’s to come!

Let’s face it, we all know deep down that the scales are not the be all and end all when it comes to measuring our health, but it can be easy to ignore that fact when the numbers start to creep past that ‘ideal’.

In a post which has racked up almost a quarter of a million likes since its upload, P!nk took to Instagram on Saturday to give us all a reminder that those ‘regular standards’ don’t always apply to everyone.

The singer gave birth to her second child last December, but it seems she wasted no time in getting her body back in shape, and yet admits that her progress would fall short of societal ideals.

Posing in her workout gear, the Leave Me Alone singer encouraged her 1.4 million followers to focus on feeling fit and healthy rather than trying to look a certain way.

Sharing the snap, she wrote, “Would you believe I’m 160 pounds and 5’3”? By ‘regular standards’ that makes me obese"

 

Thanks Jackson Hole #familydatenight #zacbrownband

"I know I’m not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2 but dammit I don’t feel obese. The only thing I’m feeling is myself."

Issuing a word of warning to her legions of followers, she added: "Stay off that scale ladies!”

Like, the women behind Any Body, P!nk’s message about body confidence is definitely one we could all take on board.

Trump supporters on Twitter are not happy with Tina Fey’s latest comments condemning young white females who voted for the President.

During a star studded live-streamed telethon fundraiser for the American Liberties Union on Saturday the actress and comedian hit out at the demographic.

Making reference to a home improvement channel in the States, she said: ‘’A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV.’’ 

According to The Independent, preliminary exit polls conducted by Edison Research, showed that Donald Trump won 45 per cent of white college-educated women’s votes while Hillary Clinton won 51 per cent.

However, when you take into account all white female voters, both with and without a college degree, Trump came out on top with 53 per cent versus Clinton’s 43 per cent.

Fey went on to urge those young female Trump voters to look at the bigger picture, saying ‘’It doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually.”

Viewers took to Twitter to express their outrage at Tina’s comments with many saying that the star’s comments were harsh and unfair.
 

 

Tina Fey isn’t the only celebrity to criticise white female Republican voters recently.

Girls creator and leading actress, Lena Dunham wrote an essay just days after the election results in which she described her disappointment at the large proportion of white women who chose not to vote for Clinton.

“It’s painful to know that white women, so unable to see the unity of female identity, so unable to look past their violent privilege, and so inoculated with hate for themselves, showed up to the polls for him.”

Between Summer of 69 and Everything I Do (I Do It For You), Bryan Adams has released some absolute belters in his day, and there's scarcely a house in Ireland that doesn't have at least one of the Canadian's CDs nested among others.

So, we are pretty pumped to learn that the Heaven singer will be taking to the stage to play Live At The Marquee in Cork later this summer!

Following his last sell-out show at the Marquee in 2014, the multi-platinum selling recording artist has confirmed he will bring his GET UP TOUR back to the People's Republic on 11 July 2017.

With over 65 million records sales under his belt and number 1s in 40 countries, the singer's decision to return to Cork has unsurprisingly thrilled his Irish fans.

If you want in on the action, be sure to bring your A-game next Monday at 9am when tickets for the gig go on sale.

See y'all there, ladies.

In an Instagram post which has amassed almost 100,000 likes in just 15 minutes, Chrissy Teigen has revealed that she has been suffering from postpartum depression.

Alongside a black and white shot of herself, the much-loved model thanked Glamour magazine for allowing her to share her experience, and told her followers that she is relieved to have been able to open up about the issue.

31-year-old Chrissy, who welcomed baby Luna in 2016, wrote: "I'll just say it: I have post partum depression. So much love to @glamourmag for letting me share something that was eating me up inside for months and months."

While acknowledging her popularity on social media, Chrissy admitted that she was apprehensive about sharing her experience despite her notably candid demeanour.

"One of the most amazing things about social media is the ability to interact candidly with friends and fans and it felt so weird knowing what I was going through but not really feeling like it was the right place to speak on it," she wrote.

 

I have dreamed of this day!

"I've always felt genuinely close to all of you and I'm insanely relieved you now know something that has been such a huge part of me for so long."

In the essay published in the popular magazine, Chrissy wrote: "I know I might sound like a whiny, entitled girl. Plenty of people around the world in my situation have no help, no family, no access to medical care."

"I can’t imagine not being able to go to the doctors that I need," she added.

Chrissy's post has been inundated with messages of support from fans and followers, with one writing: "I felt so bad that you felt the need to apologize because you're "famous" which is bs because you're still human and allowed to have a mental illness."

While she still has ‘rough days’, Chrissy insists is improving every day.
