Drew Barrymore has gotten real about the breakdown of her marriage. 

The 43-year-old has taken to Instagram to speak openly about her relationship with her former husband, actor Will Kopelman. 

The actor posted snaps of herself and Will and penned empowering message about what she has learned from her divorce.

She wrote, ''Once upon a time…I remember reading an article that said I had gotten my happy ending after all.''

She continued, ''Looking at this picture, it sure looks that way. And then, like many times in life for all of us, our plans change and our dreams are adjusted. But that doesn't mean that every second wasn't worth it. And if that DeLorean time machine pulled up every day, I would do it all over again. After all, I did get my dream. 2 healthy girls.''

She added, ''Will and I continue to marvel at what we made and try to be the best co parents we can be. It’s not always easy and the point is…nothing in life is. But it doesn't mean that any bitter outweighs the sweet!''

Drew split from Will in 2016 after three years of marriage. 

The pair are parents to two daughters – six-year-old Olive and four-year-old Frankie.

It’s not the first time that Drew has opened up about what really goes on behind closed doors in her life.

She also posted a make-up free photo of herself crying on Instagram alongside another important message.

She wrote, ''What I propose some days are great and beautiful. Sure, I can be this with two hours of hair and makeup and amazing photography and lighting. I also feel beautiful after a sweaty workout…But it all takes work! Which is good because we can achieve it.''

She continued, ''What I can’t hide is that some days are difficult and not so pretty…But sometimes life can just get to you and take you down for a minute! But we cry and then pick ourselves up and put one foot in front of the other.''

Drew is as relatable as ever and it's a good reminder that everybody has it tough at times – so let's be kind to each other.

If navigating through Instagram to find quality content wasn't hard enough – there's a brand new trend that will make it even tougher – and it has us baffled.

Introducing "sponcon” – which is a term used for Instagrammers FAKING sponsored ads to attracted big brands into giving them work.

They're attempting to take the leap from an average Instagram user to an influencer who is paid handsomely for their posts on the platform.

In order to achieve the influencer lifestyle, people are shelling out their own cash and pretending they've gotten the product or experience for free. 

So brands get the advertisement but haven't spent a penny – confused? Yeah, us too.

However, there is a method to this kinda madness as several influencers claim that companies want to see promotional abilities and past campaign work – BEFORE they hand over the big bills.

Therefore, a lot of Instagrammers are living by the phrase: Fake it until you make it. 

Brian Phanthao, a 19-year-old lifestyle influencer explained the trend to The Atlantic

“In the influencer world, it’s street cred,” said he said, “the more sponsors you have, the more credibility you have.”

The teen added that most people are following in the footsteps of Instagrammers they've grown up with – and they want a piece of that pie.

"It’s really common with kids in high school,” he added. “They’re very influenced by influencers.” 

And it seems that Brian has a point, as a 15-year-old lifestyle influencer also told the publication that "people pretend to have brand deals to seem cool."

The teenager, Allie even confessed to faking a water sponsorship on her Insta and added: “It’s a thing, like, I got this for free while all you losers are paying.”

But the person who takes the biscuit when it comes to “sponcon" is a lady by the name of Taylor Evans.

She told The Atlantic that she faked an entire trip to Miami.

Covering up her holiday as a press trip, Taylor tailored her Insta feed to look as if she didn't fork out a fortune and everything was handed to her for free.

"I took a lot of pics at restaurants and posted ‘Thanks so much XYZ restaurant for the hospitality!’” she said.

“You say it in a way that people could interpret it as you having an established relationship with that brand…"

"The hope is that it’s perceived in a way that looks like there’s a reason you’re in a different city and state, not just enjoying a weekend vacation,” she added.

We aren't too sure what to make of the recent trend.

We have a feeling that the main people making the money out of this movement is the big brands.

But sure, if it floats people's boat to pretend – then they aren't harming anyone.

As for us – trying to distinguish between what is real and fake advertising has gotten a whole lot harder.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has caused QUITE a stir since it exploded onto Netflix this year.

The series was ordered from Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa as part of a two-season agreement, which means we are guaranteed more magic, more unreal characters like Ambrose and Harvey Kindle, and more unbelievably chic hairstyles.

I mean, her icy blonde locks at the end of season one? Slay much? Goals?

News has just hit that as well as season two premiering on April 5 2019, Netflix has renewed the show for at least two more seasons; this means sixteen BEAUT more episodes to be divided over seasons three and four.

We honestly can't get enough. Just hook us up to an IV of Ambrose's honey-toned voice saying 'cousin' on repeat.

Since the finale of season one, fans have been speculating what exactly is in store for season two.

Season two will also have 10 episodes. according to Deadline.

Kiernan Shipka has also revealed to Bloody Disgusting in October 2018 that;

“Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot. Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They are very different from each other.”

Sabrina herself has claimed;

“I would just say that, without giving too much away, because it would be a bit of a spoiler, the way that Sabrina’s life takes certain turns and certain decisions she makes inform the second season."

"The finale of the first season sets up a lot. It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things.”

Filming, as per Shipka's Instagram and Ross Lynch's updates, wrapped in December 2018. There are also rumours that Salem might get his own special episode.

Speaking to IndieWire in October, the showrunner acknowledged Salem’s history, saying; “We’ve definitely talked about doing a Salem-centric episode where we learn more about his life,” RAS said.

Despite the fact that the kitty didn't have any dialogue in the first season, “That isn’t to say that Salem won’t talk in the future.” Our ears are pricked, fam.

Selena Gomez looks healthy and refreshed in the first photos of the star since entering a treatment facility for anxiety and depression in October.

The Wolves singer went on a fun field trip to the snow in Big Bear, California, yesterday.

The star was all smiles on her day out with friends, including her former Wizards of Waverly Place co-star Bailee Madison.

Selena wore a black outfit for her outdoor activities, striking a pose with her friends and looking healthier than ever after snow-tubing.

Gomez entered a treatment facility for anxiety and depression last October following her struggle and ongoing issues with Lupus, a disease which caused her to require a kidney transplant in 2017.

After undergoing a trip to hospital in September, the star appeared under a huge amount of strain. 

A source told E! News that Selena "started to feel super overwhelmed" but just a week after entering the treatment centre she was "already feeling better than she did last week."

Since leaving her treatment programme in New York, Selena hasn't made many public outings or appearances.

She utilised dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), a form of cognitive-behavioural psychology, while receiving treatment.

The 26-year-old told Vogue in 2017 that  "DBT has completely changed my life," adding,

"I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."

"I don't know what I would be without my friends. They've saved my life, they've been there for me through the thick and thin of it all," she said in a video for SGxPUMA.

We're so glad for Selena that she has such loyal friends, and wish her all the best with her health in future.

She's truly inspiring, it can't be easy to discuss mental health under the public eye.

Hashtags which might be promoting eating disorders on Instagram have now been placed on an 'unsearchables' list following an investigation.

It was discovered that users of the photo-sharing network were bypassing the platform's filters, and health warnings have since been added to several spellings or terms which reference eating disorders.

Many of these terms are popular hashtags on Instagram's platform, but if they are on the 'unsearchables' list then zero results will come up.

Since 2012, the site began making some terms unsearchable in an effort to avoid users being able to locate often upsetting graphic images and posts which encouraged the idea that eating disorders were part of a lifestyle rather than a mental disorder.

However, BBC Trending claim that certain terms are still searchable, include ones which promote bulimia, and that Instagram's search bars suggest different terminology and spellings for terms glamorising eating disorders.

The search box offered a shocking 38 alternative spellings in one such instance for a popular term promoting the disorders.

Instagram has now made several alternative terms unsearchable and have added many to the list of terms triggering the health warning. They also have said they will continue to attempt to restrict such content.

A spokesman on their behalf commented that;

"We do not tolerate content that encourages eating disorders and we use powerful tools and technologies – including in-app reporting and machine learning – to help identify and remove it," 

"However, we recognise this is a complex issue and we want people struggling with their mental health to be able to access support on Instagram when and where they need it."

"We, therefore, go beyond simply removing content and hashtags and take a holistic approach by offering people looking at or posting certain content the option to access tips and support, talk to a friend, or reach out directly" to support groups.

Social networks have begun to censor content which could possibly encourage eating disorders, yet many people online discovered a way to navigate around the filters through deliberately misspelled hashtags.

Instagram and most popular sites don't use moderators to proactively search for dangerous content, and relies on users alone to report violations of its rules.

Algorithms fail to detect the difference between positive and harmful content, and then offer advertising and suggested sites which are promoting an unhealthy mental health disorder.

Eating disorder charities are demanding that ocial media networks take more responsibility for policing their content.

Certain sites online and Instagram pages are supportive for survivors of eating disorders, and there is an argument that removing posts could cease discussions surrounding eating disorders, which is important.

The rules of Instagram prohibit posts which promote or glorify eating disorders, but the company has a long way to go to develop its safety policies.

Sarah Hyland has left social media following the bullying she experienced online in the aftermath of her cousin's tragic death.

Her 14-year-old relative lost her life in a heart-breaking car accident over the weekend.

The actress uploaded a Go Fund Me page to her Twitter, stating that a man named Jeffrey Eggerling was the driver who hit her uncle's car, and he tried to run from the scene.

"Jeffrey Eggerling is a murderer. May he rot in hell."

She also asked if her fans could donate to the page to help pay for funeral expenses of her 14-year-old cousin, which backfired.

The backlash came when Twitter users angrily stated that she could afford to pay for the funeral from her own salary, and that there was no need to ask others to contribute.

In a series of tweets, the Modern Family star explained the sense of grief and pain which her cousin's death brought, which was exacerbated by online trolls;

She continued; saying "your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while."

She presumably has contractual obligations to promote her TV show, so the exception to her social media hiatus is for this purpose only.

Some Twitter users declared that because her net worth is roughly $9 million, she should pay for the funeral herself rather than asking her fans for money which they may not have;

Others claimed that we don't actually know what her assets are, and presumably she has already contributed to the funeral costs, which is no one's business.

Many fans rallied behind her during this tough time, and we agree that when someone is mourning a great loss, attacking their net worth is just a low blow.

We hope she can get through this difficult period in her life, and offer condolences for her cousin's death.

Since Cardi B gave birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, back in July, the rapper has somehow managed to keep the newborn totally out of the spotlight.

Zero pictures, zero videos, zero papparazzi shots. We commend the rap star for managing this feat; it's no easy accomplishment to hide a four-month-old from the limelight when you're a high-profile celebrity.

We cannot handle this level of sweetness.

Cardi captioned the image; "My heart", and her 36 million followers lost their damn minds. #Kulture is already trending on Twitter, because the four-month-old was destined for social media adoration.

Offset and Cardi B, despite announcing their separation through their Instagram accounts, have insisted that they would always have love for each other for the sake of Kulture;

"He’s always somebody that I run to to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time and it’s nobody’s fault."

"I guess we grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore."
