Adele has uploaded a hilarious meme to her Instagram after news recently broke about her divorce from Simon Koneki.

The musical sensation has been silent on social media since April 11, when the couple announced their split after three years of marriage.

The 30-year-old shared a meme of herself in tears beside another image of her showing her badass side in James Corden's Carpool Karaoke series.

The singer always manages to retain her wicked sense of humour, even when going through heartbreak. The quote above the meme reads;

"When you catch yourself in your feelings then you remember who you are." Damn girl, say it louder for the people in the BACK.

Fans immediately began commenting on the post, begging her to return to music and release a fourth album.

Simon Konecki, who works as a charity boss, and Adele share six-year-old son Angelo together, and began dating in 2012.

News of the split last month was confirmed by the singer's spokesman, saying:

“Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly."

Reports are stating that Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale are officially OVER after circa four months of dating.

We're heartbroken simply because their relationship created possibly the greatest photo/meme that has circulated the internet. Periodt.

You know the one, with the tongue kissing and Queer Eye's Antoni resembling every third wheel ever:

The duo met at a Golden Globes after-party and were all over each other in public ever since.

They may have traumatised Antoni for life, but at least the SNL star and award-winning actress have apparently stayed friends since calling it quits.

“They're still friendly but are not on romantic terms,” the source told Entertainment Tonight.

Meanwhile, People is out here reporting slightly different news, with a source saying that Pete and Kate are technically still together, but they’ve slowed down a lot;

“Pete and Kate got super serious very fast, but they’ve decided to slow things down a bit,” the source explains. “They’re still dating as of now.”

Page Six reported when the pair met; “They were flirting all night and sipping champagne. They were outside on the patio and left together." Since then, we've been blinded by PDA pics.

Not anymore, folks, their kissing reign has been dethroned.

If you've been on your social media accounts recently, you most likely can't avoid the new fad; the Ten Year Challenge.

Celebrities from Mariah Carey, Trevor Noah, Amy Schumer to Caitlyn Jenner participated in the glow up experiment, with most famous faces simply proving how freakishly ageless they are.

Some participants brought humour into the fray, paralleling their image with one of another look-alike celebrity, or in Jenner's case, changing gender over the last 10 years.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Now THAT is a #10YearChallenge Be authentic to yourself 

A post shared by Caitlyn Jenner (@caitlynjenner) on

The concept of then-and-now images isn't exactly new, but it's gained massive traction over the last week. What harm could it be?

Kate O'Neill of Wired magazine introduced a new notion which essentially blew our minds, and even forced Facebook to deny her semi-sarcastic suggestion.

Her idea? That the 10 Year Challenge could be useful to any entity that’s looking to develop facial recognition algorithms about ageing.

O'Neill flipped a metaphorical table by suggesting the tech giant had initiated a trend solely to contract facial recognition data from the social network's users.

In her article, Facebook's 10 Year Challenge Is Just A Harmless Meme- Right?, she claims;

"I knew the facial recognition scenario was broadly plausible and indicative of a trend that people should be aware of. It’s worth considering the depth and breadth of the personal data we share without reservations."

Allegedly, the conspiracy translates to Facebook needing to experiment with data, and the meme proving the perfect way to achieve it.

"Imagine that you wanted to train a facial recognition algorithm on age-related characteristics and, more specifically, on age progression (e.g., how people are likely to look as they get older)," she added. 

"Ideally, you'd want a broad and rigorous dataset with lots of people's pictures. It would help if you knew they were taken a fixed number of years apart—say, 10 years." WHAT.

O'Neill is saying that the powerful technology company could use the algorithm for advertising, insurance assessment, healthcare and finding missing children. Both positive but simultaneously dangerous consequences.

Of course, this is all total speculation, unsubstantiated evidence. Yet Facebook was forced to dispel the rumours:

Do we place too much trust in sites like Facebook? Even if the challenge isn't a case of social engineering, the website has come under fire following numerous controversial claims against them.

Examples of social games designed to extract data aren't far from reality, let's cast our minds back to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

The mass data extraction of over 70 million American Facebook users was performed, and rocked the country so much that Mark Zuckerberg himself had to turn up to Congress.

Another aspect of the website which garners negative attention is their suspicious community guidelines which seem to apply more rigidly to certain types of people.

Let's face it, Facebook is already heavily involved in politics, such as the critical 2016 US Presidential election and Russian interference.

According to Kate O'Neill, major tech corporations acquiring data could be used for population control and law-and-order;

"After Amazon introduced real-time facial recognition services in late 2016, they began selling those services to law enforcement and government agencies, such as the police departments in Orlando and Washington County, Oregon."

"But the technology raises major privacy concerns; the police could use the technology not only to track people who are suspected of having committed crimes, but also people who are not committing crimes, such as protesters and others whom the police deem a nuisance," she continued.

Facebook's implication in various privacy concerns has created a tumultuous relationship between the tech giant and its users.

O'Neill is definitely right about one thing- data is one of the most powerful currencies, so don't spend it dangerously.

“Regardless of the origin or intent behind this meme, we must all become savvier about the data we create and share, the access we grant to it, and the implications for its use."

Anyone who paid attention to the Golden Globes the other night MUST have noticed the photobombing 'Fiji Water Girl.' Her constant presence was literally chilling.

Kelleth Cuthbert. AKA the 'FWG', works as a fashion model and commercial actress and pretty much just wants the world to stay DAMN HYDRATED.

She essentially stole the show at the 76th annual awards, and stood behind legit every single celebrity so ended up appearing in hundreds of high-profile images. Gas?

The Golden Globe model eventually became the talk of the night, with viewers taking note of her consistent red carpet star presence.

Cuthbert told People that she wasn't actually trying to emerge into the spotlight, but her modelling instincts took over (mmhmm we don't believe it).

She claims that the magical and amusing photos simply came about by “looking at the camera at the right time.” LIES-a Minelli, sweetie.

The gal has ended up being the brunt of hundreds of unbelievable memes, but explained that she was on her A-game because of the amount of photographers there.

“There’s tons of photographers everywhere. It doesn’t matter where you stand, you’re in the crossfire of every shot,” she commented.

“You’ve gotta have good face, at least, if you’re gonna be hovering in the background frequently," she added.

Her boss, Fiji Water, described her images as "ominous", which is a new one in terms of employer feedback, we have to say.

“We’re so glad everyone is talking about our water! *senses ominous presence* She’s right behind us, isn’t she? #FIJIwatergirl” the company tweeted on Sunday.

They then kickstarted the memes themselves by photoshopping her into various classic film images, pretty much NAILING free marketing.

They inserted her into Star Wars, Rocky and Thelma and Louise successfully, somehow, and it made for wonderful content.

Despite the “ominous” appearance, Cuthbert said the red carpet was actually too fast-paced to be focusing on your face constantly.

“The photographers have to take so many shots, so rapidly. Obviously, your face doesn’t look perfectly pleasant in all of them, so they captured lots of expressions where I’m naturally making weird faces.”

She appeared with Idris Elba, Judy Greer and Richard Madden, her favourite big-name photobomb image was Jim Carrey.

“I loved the Jim Carrey one,” she revealed to People. “I love his work. I grew up watching his movies and thought it was a funny thing to find myself in the background of.”

The model was totally unaware of all the social media furore surrounding her appearance on the red carpet, where she wore a long blue gown.

"I had absolutely no idea what was happening because I obviously didn’t have my phone on me,” she spoke about the craziness online while she was oblivious.

“I felt very cut off from everything. I didn’t find out until the last stragglers of the red carpet were heading into the awards ceremony, and all these people walking by started shoving their phones in my face and showing me that I was trending on Twitter, but I didn’t understand the magnitude of it untill later,” she added.

More than 50,000 tweets were sent out about Fiji Water Girl on Twitter in a few hours alone.

Cuthbert claims Fiji Water "got a good laugh out of it,” and that she was flooded with selfie requests from after-party guests, so she definitely made an impact.

She claims the Golden Globes was a once in a lifetime experience, despite having been in the industry for 12 years.

“Nothing quite so interesting has ever happened,” she said. “Nothing has garnered so much attention as this before.”

'One taught me love, one taught me patience, one taught me pain'

The now iconic lyrics of Ariana Grande's new HELLA SPICY self-love song that has shaken the globe.

The tune features lines about her last four serious ex-boyfriends: Ricky Alvarez, Mac Miller, Big Sean and of course, Pete Davidson.

TBH we all expected her to shrow some (lamp) shade all around, especially seeing as Pete Davidson recently made a far-too-soon joke about their engagement, but Ari took the highest road of all, and said 'Thank you, next' to immaturity.

She's a far bigger person than we are, morally, that's for sure.

We've taken the liberty to dig up the most hilarious 'Thank You, next' memes on the net, and boy have we hit the jackpot of comedy. Buckle up, lads.

1. Shrek is love, Shrek is life. Apparently Ariana Grande fans concur with this statement? Who knew.

2. The twist on the most famous line from Notting Hill, and possibly one of the greatest Hugh Grant rom-com quotes, was tweeted by Ari herself. Though who would shrug off Julia Roberts? 

3. Sam Carmichael, Harry Bright and Bill Austin teaching us love, patience and pain… Mamma Mia just had to be included on this list didn't it? 

4. The sequel has inspired some of the greatest of all time (GOAT) memes, and it wasn't left out in this occasion either:

 5. Detective Hopper from Stranger Things (DK Harbour) absolutely annihilated the world's fandom feels with a single Instagram post=

NOT. ABLE. 

6. This one any gal can relate to:

Pretty much just constant pain though… let's not lie to ourselves. 

7. What romantic triple threat could skip the Gilmore Girls? Those boys had our hearts, Jess was always our personal fave but WE LOVED THEM ALL. Who are we kidding?

8. Some gas folks out there decided to create a pun on Ariana's 'ex' and transform it somehow into an X-Men reference…

9. Milk politics was then brought into the equation (yep, really), where the eternal battle between dairy milk, oat milk and almond milk rages on=

10. Let us never forget the three brothers who raised us through the Disney years=

11. Last, but by all means not least, the Harry Potter edition featuring Draco Malfoy, Ron Weasley and Harry=

 Those boys had us feeling all kinds of emotions, much like Ari's entire new album, Sweetener.

In light of everything Queen Grande been through over the last few years, Ariana makes sure to confirm to her fans that the most important relationship she has is with herself.

She's dead right, we say. As Ru Paul affirms: "If you can't love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love anyone else?"

God is a woman, but these memes need their own religion.

Millions of people around the world – including some 5,000 in Dublin – took to the streets over the weekend to march in protest. 

Their grievance? The inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th president of the United States. 

Brandishing placards, banners, and signage, they made their voices heard loud and clear. 

And while there were numerous standout moments from the global movement (it took place on Saturday) one particularly adorable toddler is proving to be quite the little head-turner. 

Aged just 22 months her mother, Jenny Sowry, snapped her aloft upon her father's shoulders at the North Carolina march. 

The child, wrapped up warm against the city of Charlotte chill, can be seen in the image holding proudly above her head her very own contribution: a colourful collection of swiggles and lines set against a piece of brown cardboard. 

Jenny shared the picture on Facebook using the inspiring hashtags: #inherownwords #shespeaksforherself.

She was in attendance alongside her husband, Sam, and their two children – a nine-year-old son as well as the little girl in the photo. 

The toddler has already been turned into a meme (naturally), while numerous people have been taking to Twitter using the hashtag #wokebaby to share their joy at the sight of the small one.

“The word that keeps coming back to me is ‘hope,’” Ms Sowry told Buzzfeed.com in the aftermath. “It makes people hopeful that there is already a little one who is already speaking her mind.”

The US Vice President is certainly having a bit of a moment on the internet – with the emergence of numerous light-hearted memes centring on the warm relationship he and President Barack Obama share.

However, the one image that has REALLY caught everyone's attention is a photograph of the dashing young Biden aged 26.

Holding what appears to be a bottle of wine in a brown paper bag, the politician – now 73 – can be seen looking into the camera like the dream-boat he was and is. 

And this morning, rumour was abound on social media that Joe's wife of almost 40 years, Jill, 65, had tweeted her own admiration for her spouse's handsome features. 

Sent from a profile that boasts 45,000 followers and named @JillBidenVeep, on closer inspection it seems it is merely a parody account.

Still, we reckon the real Jill – whose official account has a more robust 178,000 fans – would be fully on board with the same sentiment and that she's proud as punch of Joe's new-found online fame.

The snap of 26-year-old Mr Biden was originally shared on Joe's Instagram page more than two years ago to highlight the importance of the Affordable Care Act which allows young adults to stay on their parents’ health insurance until the age of 26.

With so many varieties to choose from and such wonderfully comforting properties, if any food is BAE, it’s got to be bread.

And if you’ve ever wondered which type of bread best represents your personality, an online quiz now exists which could help you find the answer.

Earlier this year, 25-year-old college admissions employee Liz White used a quiet day at the office to develop the bread personality quiz which is now dominating the Internet.

The quirky personality test – which links humorous human traits to different categories of bread – has been shared tens of thousands of times in recent weeks and has caused a major stir on Twitter.

The test makes a connection between people who love wholegrain bread and those who suffer from the dreaded Resting Bitch Face.

It also claims that those of us who enjoy a bit of French stick always feel cold and have a strong liking for tequila.

Since the quiz is based on the personalities of its creator’s friends, it can’t exactly be called scientific.

But for those who love bread, it certainly is a lot of fun.

*Hello darkness, my old friend.*

It seems that the overwhelmingly bad critic reviews for Ben Affleck's latest film Batman v Superman have hit the actor hard if this interview is anything to go by. 

In fact, the 43-year-old looked so distressed when he and Henry Cavill were asked about about the negative response that a pretty spectacular meme was born. 

Yep, #sadaffleck is officially a thing and we are witnessing its birth. 

The now viral meme was solidified when one tech savvy person decided to maximise on Ben Affleck's potent sadness during a promotional interview for the movie. 

Watch the video that started it all below:

He filled our feeds for years with many pictures of his happy little face popping up in gifs and memes – and now the 'Success Kid' is back and all grown up.

The photo of the now eight-year-old was posted on Imgur, and my, he has grown.

His mother is standing with him in the photo holding up a little 'Success Kid' toy while Sammy grins beside her.

Last year he surfaced on the Internet again when his family lauched a GoFundMe campaign for his dad to receive a kidney transplant.

The operation was successful (yay) and we hope to see Sammy strike a few more hilarious poses in the future.
