Clap-back queen and general amazing human Chrissy Teigen made an important point when a fan asked if she was pregnant.

The internets favourite social media darling has a reputation for slamming the trolls, but she had a dignified response to an Instagram user who asked about a possible baby bump.

Teigen is currently in Italy with her husband, John Legend, and her two children. Her latest Instagram snap sees the model wearing a towel as a dress, and one commenter wrote, "Baby bump?" as a response.

Chrissy perfectly explained to the commenter why asking a woman if she's pregnant can be extremely hurtful, and we love her for it.

Teigen herself had issues with conceiving in the past, and used her last frozen embryo after rounds of IVF in order to have her second child, Miles.

The star replied to the baby bump comment with compassion, but perfectly explained why it's not appropriate to ask questions such as these.

"I know you didn't mean it to be rude, but think twice about asking this," Teigen wrote. "There are people who have trouble conceiving, and it hurts every time."

She continued; "I'm not pregnant but would be happy if I were. But I'm also happy not to be!" she said. The mum-of-two has been praised for her honest reply to a hard question.

Another fan pointed out; "It also hurts when you are trying to lose your baby weight and still have a bump and people ask or think this question."

Teigen commented in response; "I'm already reminded of it every time I get out of the shower, I don't need to hear it on the daily."

Whether it's fertility, post-partum depression or her post-baby body; Chrissy is truly an authentic spokeswoman online for every mum struggling with the realities of motherhood.

She's never one to hold back when faced with parent-shaming or intrusion from fans, and we're glad she schooled this fan on the topic of conception.

Queen of social media, Chrissy Teigen, has raised a vitally valuable question about the differences of interviewing men and women.

The world has a pop culture fascination with Chrissy and her husband John Legend's relationship; they're both witty, socially aware and created ADORABLE children.

However, there's taking an interest in their family life, because they do share quite a lot with their following, but there's also taking questions way too far.

Chrissy revealed this week that John constantly gets asked, "How do you deal with your wife", and we are not happy. 

She tweeted a thread about the type of questions her husband gets asked in interviews, and it just seems like some MAD double standards to us; 

"I feel like a very common question when interviewing john is basically “how do you deal with your wife” and … I don’t love it." We wouldn't love it either, because she would never get asked how she deals with John.

She elaborated on the question and how she feels about it, and it's relatable as always. 

"It happens a lot. “Does she ask you if certain things are okay to say?” …it’s just very weird to me," she said. 

"No. He doesn’t. I don’t care. and he doesn’t care. End of question." she tweeted, continuing the thread. Shut that sh*t down, Chrissy. Asking how you "deal" with your wife implies that she's difficult to live with, and causes hassle in his career.

Chrissy has her own illustrious career, and yet never gets asked the same question about her husband.

"He usually does the standard “No…she knows what she’s doing…” but it’s not even that. It’s just that I am a different human than him? It is the most common question with him. Please stop."

Rightfully so, Chrissy said John usually shuts the question down fairly easily, but emphasised that she's actually a different person than him with her own life and goals, who isn't just tied to him while he goes out and earns.

She concluded;

"I’m not mad at anyone who has asked this. I get that we are very different. It happens a lot though and I’m just not very into it. You don’t ask me how I deal with watching MSNBC every night or what I do while he’s silent for a week."

Damn straight, Chrissy. They're basically implying that she's mouthy and loud and controls the voice in the household, and how does he COPE with that as a husband?

Teigen isn't afraid of using her social media platform and sharing her opinions on mum-shaming, body-shaming, IVF, postpartum depression and the political situation in America right now.

Translation:

By asking John Legend but not Teigen about his coping mechanisms when it comes to his partner, the basic tone of the question is that it must be a hardship to be married to an outspoken woman, we think.

*Eye roll* The man has an EGOT (An Emmy, several Grammys, an Oscar and a Tony) and THAT'S the most common question he gets asked? How does it feel being married to an opinionated and thoughtful lady?

We can think of far more complex things to ask the hugely successful musician, to be honest, that don't involve the notion of a woman using her voice for empowerment. They're separate humans with separate careers, people.

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.

R&B singer R Kelly is now facing a criminal investigation over allegations of sexual assault, rape, abuse and paedophilia after the airing of explosive documentary Surviving R Kelly.

The six-hour docu-series premiered on Lifetime and shocked its audience with its graphic and emotionally harrowing stories from dozens of accusers.

On-camera interviews with women who claim to have been held captive in incredibly abusive situations with Kelly provided upsetting testimonies, and now an investigation will officially take place.

TMZ reports that Georgia investigators received hundreds of calls once the episodes started airing in the US on January 3, and they are still aiming to speak with accusers.

The district attorney's office has yet to publicly comment on its investigation, but in Illinois, State Attorney Kim Foxx urged members of the public to come forward with relevant information.

Despite this, she stopped short of opening up her own criminal investigation, but said in a press conference that; "Listening to survivors and giving survivors a platform to tell their stories was heartbreaking," 

She also told reporters that she was "sickened" as both as a mother and as a prosecutor by the sexual abuse allegations made.

Kelly's manager has shockingly been accused of threatening the parents of Jocylen Savage, one of the alleged predator's abuse victims, in an attempt to dissuade them from appearing in the documentary.

Timothy Savage told an officer the day the series aired that Don Russell, the R&B singer's manager, texted him to say it would be best for his family if the documentary never aired.

Savage claimed himself and his wife were both involved with Lifetime's harrowing series.

Surviving R Kelly was created by feminist author and filmmaker dream hampton, and also includes celebrity appearances from John Legend and Chance the Rapper, who said collaborating with the Ignition singer was a "mistake."

Chance came under fire for admitting that he didn't listen to the women's testimony or value their stories "because they are black women".

A BBC Three documentary about the singer is also available to stream now. R Kelly has strenuously denied 30 years of abuse allegations made against him, including those made in the latest miniseries.

The R&B and soul singer was one of few celebrities to appear in the Surviving R Kelly documentary, with stars such as Jay Z, Mary J Blige and Lady Gaga declining to appear.

While John Legend was applauded for speaking out against notorious sex predator Kelly in the Lifetime docu-series, which recounts the multiple abuse claims the musician has faced over the last three decades.

While appearing in the documentary was of monumental importance, Legend has now landed himself in hot water.

Fans were surprised to see a resurfaced photo of the 40-year-old and his wife happily posing for a photo with Harvey at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016, only a few months before the #MeToo movement took off.

The infamous 66-year-old movie mogul at the heart of the #MeToo movement is currently awaiting trial in New York on a number of related sexual assault and rape charges.

The All Of Me singer was forced to defend himself, writing a response to his Twitter followers;

"I took a photo with and worked with Harvey on several occasions before his abuse was known to me and the rest of the world."

"Since his being exposed, his company and career have rightfully been destroyed and he's been indicted. Sounds like something that should happen to R. Kelly."

 He continued in a follow-up tweet, saying "If y'all wanna cape for R and discount all these women's stories, just say it. Don't bring up some old pics of me and somebody else."

That being said, allegedly Harvey Weinstein's abuse was widely known throughout the entire entertainment industry for decades, so we find it difficult to believe that he had no clue what the movie producer was capable of.

What's your stance, do you think the image is important, or should the focus be on listening to the voices of R Kelly's victims and speaking out against enablers?

John Legend celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday (we can’t believe it either) and in honour of the momentous day, the singer penned the most sentimental post about the past year.

Grab the tissues because what he said about his children Luna and Miles will have you in floods of tears.

The All Of Me singer thanked everyone for the birthday wishes in the touching post. “It's been a wonderful year, and I feel so grateful for all 40 years of my life.”

John explained that 2018 has been one of the most special years of his life, thanks to his family: “This year has been especially awesome. I love my growing family.”

He gushed: “Luna is so special and I love being her father and watching her personality blossom.”

The dad-of-two couldn’t help but praise his baby boy Miles, who was born earlier this year: “We welcomed Miles to this world and I see so much of myself in him and can't wait to see who he becomes.”

Continuing the heartfelt post, John spoke about his darling wife Chrissy Teigen. He shared: “Chrissy is the superstar I always knew her to be. I'm happy that more and more people around the world are realizing this too.”

John also mentioned his career highlights, including the EGOT, his Christmas album and working on Jesus Christ Superstar, but there’s no doubt the time spent with his family trumped all of these moments.

“Thank you to all my collaborators, friends, fans and family who made my 40th year so memorable. I love you all. Have a wonderful 2019,” the Love Me Now singer concluded.

If anyone needs us we’ll be sobbing for the foreseeable future. John’s love for his family is infectious.

Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity to have been essentially CANCELLED online, after offensive tweets from back in 2010 and 2011 surfaced which say some pretty dodgy stuff about self-harm, Lindsey Lohan and trans people.

The tweets have been met with outrage on the internet, with Twitter users getting the hashtag #ChrissyTeigenIsOverParty trending almost instantaneously.

The comments are from roughly eight years ago, but they reference the appearances of celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and in particular Lindsay Lohan. 

They are especially distasteful regarding the trans community, one of her tweets references Tyra Banks' talent search show America's Next Top Model;

"God. Can we just come out and call the freakin show ‘americas next top tranny’ because this shit has been transtastic for the past 5 years."

Another tweet references self-harm:

The word 'tranny' is used often on her account back in 2010 and 2011. The social media personality is half-Thai, and speaks about the perception of her country in terms of the trans community:

There are some more upsetting ones regarding slut-shaming sexually promiscuous women:

The mother-of-two has yet to comment on the matter, but we're sure she must regret not deleting her old, harmful tweets.

The model has become a major social media personality for her sassy remarks about Donald Trump, and has the crown of the 'Clapback Queen' and 'Queen of Twitter'. 

We highly doubt she'll manage to keep her crown after this.

What do you think, should she be cancelled? Or will you give her another chance?

British singer Rita Ora has landed herself in a sticky situation after being accused of lip-syncing during her performance at Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

John Legend has also been dragged into the controversy as viewers send in hundreds of complaints regarding the televised event.

Organisers apologised to the audience of millions, citing "technical difficulties" as the reason for the out of sync vocals, which we have to admit are pretty damn cringeworthy:

Ora was singing Let You Love Me when the technical errors occurred, and was hit with a flurry of critique after viewers proclaimed the whole musical event as a falsity.

Macy's released a statement saying:

"Several recording artists experienced technical difficulties that negatively impacted their performance. We apologise and want fans to know these issues were out of the artist’s control."

Watching Ora try and salvage the song on top of a bizarre float is arguably as tough to watch as Cheryl's now-infamous X-Factor performance.

Ora replied to the statement on Twitter, thanking the company for it's candour:

Diana Ross and John Legend also performed, but Ora has faced the brunt of the criticism from the audience.

The "first LGBTQ kiss" in the history of the event also took place during a performance of The Prom.

We all know and adore Chrissy Teigan; gorgeous model, hilarious social media darling, wife of John Legend and just all-round sound lady.

Teigan visited Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show for a chat to discuss her new cookbook, Cravings 2, and the clapback queen discussed the topic of retouching in the modelling industry.

While some take issue with their hips, thighs or facial area, Teigan confessed that she has a major problem with showing her feet. Random…

Chrissy claims that her feet are so ugly that she has written in her legal contract that they must be retouched or hidden in every photoshoot. This is the gospel truth, we swear.

After casually mentioning her hatred of bare feet, she was quick to cover up her toes while sitting in Ellen's infamous chair.

Chrissy laughed and said jokingly, "I have Asian jungle feet, like we're meant to climb trees." (Her mother is from Thailand, her dad is of Norwegian descent)

Of course Ellen tried to get a good look at those notorious toes, but Chrissy slid off the couch and literally sat on her feet so nobody could have a viewing of them. Damn, we're intrigued now. 

When asked how she could pull off this contract clause in various shoots, such as swimsuit campaigns, the media personality explained:

"I used to have it in my Sports Illustrated contract: no feet," she said. "I would bury them in the sand."

Now, we have obviously had to google 'Chrissy Teigan feet', because we had to see this. Her feet were, dare we say it, GLOWING. 

Teigan admitted that she has to wear open-toed shoes to red carpet events and other major media ceremonies, but we have no clue why she's insecure about her feet. They're prettier than our future. 

Keep slayin' Chrissy, your down-to-earth vibe is keeping us alive.

Starting with some spicy humour, John introduced himself as a “trophy husband.”

But he quickly turned his attention to Chrissy, describing her as a star and the “heart and soul of the family”.

"I am very much in love with this woman…But I’m not the only one who loves her. Many millions of people who aren’t married or related to her love her too," he confessed to the crowd.

“Everywhere I go, I meet people, fans, who used to ask me for an autograph or tell me how much they love my music. Now, the number one comment I get from people who used to be my fans is how much they love Chrissy. She gets bigger cheers than I do at my own concerts. They love her," he added.

"The heart she wears on her sleeve. She inspires so many people and so many women. I mean, she’s the kind of woman you write songs about.”

And John did just that in 2013 and wrote the smash hit All of Me, which was all about Chrissy – ugh, yay for love.

“Chrissy’s biggest impact may be the way she proves that just by being the person you are, you can make a difference. Being who you are, unapologetically, you can make a difference.”

 “I am amazed by the woman that you’ve become. And I’m truly glad that the rest of the world has finally found out about it, too,” he finished.

Chrissy and John have been together since 2007 and going from their moving words about each other, they've truly found something wonderful in one another.

We do believe in love, we do, we do.
