Social media queen Chrissy Teigen has once again renewed her crown with her latest baby photo series on Instagram, featuring baby Miles and…not-so-baby John Legend.

There's no doubt in anyone's minds that their nine-month-old baby boy Miles is the SPITTING IMAGE of John Legend.

Seriously, it's uncanny. Chrissy posted an image of Miles celebrating nine months of life, and then posted an identical picture featuring a grown-up John in a onesie, and we're gasping.

She captioned the initial picture on Instagram;"Nine months of this perfect", with a love heart and lion emoji. Cute.

She stepped it up in the next image, however, which shows John in a baby-gro celebrating a LOT more than nine months of life…

"Wow they grow up so fast," she wrote, with the hilarious post showing '482 months' old John in a matching position to Miles.

We learn a thing or two about John Legend in the post; his favourite bed-time lullaby is Say A Little Prayer, and his favourite bed-time story is the political news programme The Rachel Maddow Show. Very niche for a baby…

He doesn't like beets and bad grammar, and he loves music, peanut butter and his family. How pure.

Hilariously, Chrissy also included the amount of teeth he had, his height in inches, and his weight. The 40-year-old Ordinary People singer looks absolutely chuffed with himself either way, so that's a nice milestone right there.

Meanwhile, mum-of-two Chrissy was GUSH-ing about the latest addition to her family as she posted Mile's extra cute chalkboard.

Little Miles sat on the floor and detailed his likes and dislikes, and it's just the cutest. The statistics included his love for his sister Luna, toys, music and bath time. 

Social media personality Chrissy and musician John welcomed their son Miles into the family last May, and also share two-year-old daughter Luna. What a fam, we aspire to be as legendary as this lot.

Body-shaming is still massively prevalent in our society, without question.

Despite the cold, hard fact that it's 2019, people still feel the incessant need to pull others down for their appearance, and their weight.

Loey Lane is a well-known, GORGEOUS, experienced YouTuber who just so happens to be plus-sized. She speaks about it regularly, preaching the value of health above self-hatred and dieting.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

15-25. One is miserable in her own skin, chased the high of seeing a lower number on the scale every time she stepped on. She was overcome by her own demons. One is confident and in love with her own body. She told those demons to fuck off.  Turned off the comments because random people who have no idea who I am don’t know how to act lol. It has nothing to do with weight. It has everything to do with the fact that I hated myself for a long time because of the way I looked, and now everything I do is out of self love. I go to the gym because I love myself, not because I hate my body. I eat healthier because I want to feel good in my own skin. I take better care of myself now than I ever did eating 500 calories a day.

The vlogger has now released a shocking video of a diet pill company using footage of her as part of their horrendously shameful advertising campaign.

After returning from a sportswear photoshoot with iconic make-up guru James Charles, the model discovered a video selling diet pills which utilised images of her as their 'before' template, and she's understandably fuming.

CarbonFire 213 Complex makes it ridiculously difficult to find reviews of it online, but the video proclaims the product to be a certified miracle for anyone who wants to lose weight.

Diet pills have entered the media for an assortment of reasons over the last few years, with activists and public figures such as Jameela Jamil slamming weight-loss products which do more harm than good.

The Kardashians are renowned for selling appetite suppressants and weight-loss consumer goods, much to the dismay of many body positivity figures and health experts alike.

There are an array of dangers associated with items such as these, which are essentially glorified laxatives.

The advertising campaigns in the media are arguably as harmful, telling women their weight creates everyday problems such as finding a husband, having failing health and being embarrassed to look in the mirror.

Loey Lane shows the video advert to her following, and it's one of the worst examples of body-shaming we've seen yet. It opens with a beautiful, pale-skinned blonde woman gazing at silk wedding gowns, after her friend asks her to be her maid-of-honour for a wedding.

"How I Fit Into My Wedding Dress" is the video's apparent title, despite the fact that it's NOT HER WEDDING. The problems aren't hard to spot throughout the disgraceful imagery.

 The blonde woman looks into the camera lens, and the words; "Believe me, I wasn't always this way. This was me before losing all that weight," flash across the screen.

Lo-and-behold, the woman is now Loey Lane, allegedly the same person as the blonde woman.

Alright then, at this stage we've lost count of the issues within the video, and it's only about ten seconds in.

As if the ad itself isn't traumatising enough to watch, actual graphics for OTHER diet pill companies and body-shaming articles pop up on the side of the screen. An assault is what that is.

"I'm going to share my secret so that it can be easy for you!" the advert claims. Thank God for that.

"A few months ago, one of my best friends from high school texted me. She was getting married and she wanted me to be her bridesmaid. I was SO excited, but there was just one thing… I was SO overweight," the video continues. Wow.

"I couldn't go to the wedding like this, I was so pretty in high school and I would be so embarrassed looking like this. I wanted to go to the wedding and look like I did when I was 18. You know- slim, pretty, looking great in some heels." *Sharpens pitchfork*

"I cut out all junk food. I worked out every single day. After four months, I was still embarrassed to look in the mirror…my personal trainer friend said if I wanted to lose weight fast, I had to supercharge my metabolism."

Classic *insert scientific words here to fumble the consumer's brain* tactics. 

"At this point I was desperate…time was running out." This isn't dismantling a bomb, you won't die if you attend your best friend's wedding at ANY weight.

oh my god omg GIF by TV One

"How could I show my face at the wedding looking like this?" Looking like.. a human woman? *Gasp* "I was even considering not showing up." Priorities aren't in order there, love.

"CarbonFire Complex claimed to boost metabolism using only the healthiest ingredients, they looked very professional." Yes, and Donald Trump looks very diplomatic.

"After only a few days, I dropped a dress size. Ten days later, I lost two dress sizes. I felt lighter on my feet." Because your digestive system has just wasted away, perhaps?

oh my god wtf GIF

"After another week, I was down three sizes. By the time the wedding came around, I lost seven dress sizes. I was getting a LOT more attention from guys, I almost felt bad for the bride, because I was getting so many compliments."

Male attention should be the motivational factor for every woman, after all. 

This all comes at the reasonable price of ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS, by the way. You can buy happiness, male sexual attention and confidence all at this lovely sale.

The blonde woman in the video revealed herself as Amanda John, and she also did not consent to be used for the branding.

So they effectively stole imagery from two women without their permission and used it to scam vulnerable, hard-working people online with low self-esteem because of ads exactly like this, shaming their weight. As if a weighing scales can tell you your worth.

We hope Loey Lane and Amanda John take legal action against CarbonFire Complex, Lord knows they deserve it.

A reminder, there is no such thing as a magic pill. Your worth encompasses your hopes, fears, intelligence, beliefs, morals, family values, friends, career and everything in between, not just your appearance alone.

You can't lose weight and discover joy at the end of the scales.

There's literal (ok not LITERAL but you know what I mean) tumbleweed blowing across the office as the SHEmazing team heard this.

Because, like, duh.

Even though we love our families unconditionally, if you've ever sat through a long lunch or family gathering, then the findings of this study will make a lot of sense to you.
AreaVibes conducted a survey with more than 1,000 people about their proximity from immediate family, who they tend to favour and where they run off to when long-stay visits are a must.

So what did they find?

People do what they can to avoid conflict when the family gets together as 22% of people opt for an Airbnb when visiting their siblings.

Mean or fair?

Alcohol plays a big part in families hanging out as the survey showed that millennials rely on alcohol at a significantly higher level than other generations, with family discussions about current events pushing them over the edge.

Which is hardly shocking, to be fair.

So what about when it comes to grandparents? Surely people put aide dome time for the elderly members of their family?

Shockingly, adults only set aside time to see their grandparents FOUR times a year.

C'mon now lads, it's important to spend time with your Grandma's and Grandad's, especially if they live nearby.

Rihanna has now taken legal action against her father, Ronald Fenty, for using her trademark Fenty brand in a "fraudulent effort to solicit millions of dollars" without her permission.

Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, has filed a lawsuit against her dad after he set up the company Fenty Entertainment and apparently acted as her agent.

She claims Ronald and a man named Moses Perkins have been "soliciting business by falsely acting as her agent".

According to legal documents, the duo are allegedly seeking "to profit from her fame" and "although Mr. Fenty is Rihanna’s father, he does not have, and never has had, authority to act on Rihanna’s behalf."

The ANTI singer and beauty mogul also claims they have falsely booked her for a $15 million Latin American tour, two concerts at Staples Centre in LA and a Las Vegas show, worth $400,000.

The documents also allege that her father tried unsuccessfully to file trademark for Fenty multiple times to launch a "resort hotel services" with the hope of "exploiting Rihanna’s name and brand". Yikes.

The 30-year-old star insists that she tried to settle the issues outside of court but that he ignored her cease and desist mail. She's now asking a judge to place an injunction on Ronald.

Fenty has been trademarked by Bad Gal Riri for all business ventures, such as her cosmetics and lingerie collections.

The Umbrella songstress has a turbulent relationship with her biological father; she has maintained that he physically abused her mother and has been addicted to crack cocaine in the past.

Lucky Britney.

It might have to do with Britney cancelling her Britney: Domination Las Vegas show after her dad Jamie suffered a colon rupture – maybe the scare looks like it might have made Britney think about how important family is.

According to Hollywoodlife. “Britney would really love to have more children, and she has expressed very much wanting to do that sooner rather than later.''

They continued, ''She’s so happy with boyfriend Sam and would love to have a baby with him. Her father’s health really made her take a step back and figure out what’s important.”

There might also be another reason why she would like another kid.

Reportedly Britney is, ''Taking some time to figure out what she wants out of life, and right now it seems like she just has no desire to perform and all her focus is on her family, including adding to her own. Britney absolutely loves her fans and performing, but she also loves being a mom and knows she’s getting older.''

If she decided to, we wish her all the best- she'll always be our fave pop star anyway.

There's nothing better than a mum-and-daughter girlie day out together.

And Victoria Beckham and daughter Harper proved that it's always a success when they spent the day together and documented it on Instagram.

The former Spice Girl took her seven-year-old out for a spa day – which included a baby facial by Dr. Barbara Sturm.

Dr Barbara is the therapist responsible for Hollywood's most gory beauty treatment – the bloody vampire facial, made famous by the likes of Kim Kardashian.

Victoria took to Instagram Stories to post a video of Harper, clad in a hairnet and towel, lying down as Dr. Barbara Sturm gave her a facial.

The 44-year-old captioned it, ''Baby facial with @drbarbarasturm…We must use clean products on our children.''

After the spa treatment, Victoria took the family for a vegan meal, posting snaps of husband David enjoying his food.

The day ended with Victoria uploading an adorable picture of a note that Harper had written her.

It said, ''Dear mummy, thank you for what you have done for us fun, happiness, kindness, love and most of all your heart."

All together now – awwwwww.

Fans of the hit BBC show Peaky Blinders are currently being driven mad waiting for the latest series, and the official Instagram page for the TV series has shared an image which hints at bloodshed for the gang.

The snap gives a major hint for the notorious Birmingham gang, who live in a morally grey world of assassination, gang warfare and family crimes.

The show is known for not holding back when it comes to killing off our favourite characters, and the caption of the post has fans worried that yet another death is coming for the Shelby clan.

The caption reads; "First day back on set for #PeakyBlinders Series 5. You're sure of a big surprise."

The image shows a blood-spattered clapper-board above a gun in a woodland setting, and boy are we concerned. 

Season four finished off with the Changretta threat being sufficiently dealt with, but creator Steven Knight most definitely has more enemies in store for Tommy Shelby to handle.

The latest clips during the BBC trailer shows a crucifixion shot at the beginning;

We simply can't wait for Peaky Blinders to return, but can we handle the drama? Every character has blood on their hands, we have no idea who the 'good guys' are, because human nature isn't black and white.

The Shelbys float between light and dark, and their friends and foes switch sides constantly.

Though Tommy Shelby is an honourable man when it comes to his family, who knows what he's capable of in terms of violence against those who cross him.

After the latest Instagram post, fans are now foreseeing a major death in the series. What do you think their hint means?
