A Queen Elizabeth Photobomb Makes This The Best Selfie Ever

Queen Elizabeth Selfie

Two Australian hockey players captured one of the better selfies in Instagram history when Queen Elizabeth peeked into the shot behind them. The queen paid a surprise visit to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday to see a Wales-England hockey match. She arrived early, just as the Australian match was coming to an end, so she hung out and chatted with the Australian players. Players Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris tried to time their selfie so that the camera would snap just as the queen was walking behind them. The ladies imply that the queen just happened to be smiling in their direction, but I think she was totally trying to get into that shot. Her green outfit even matches theirs!

Frisky Rant: My Boobs Are Not A Threat To Your Marriage

Frisky Rant: My Boobs Are Not A Threat To Your Marriage

Recently blogger Lauren of Apples and Band-Aids caused an uproar among bloggers when she wrote a post claiming that racy social media images by sexy female strangers were a threat to her marriage. To wit:

When your bare shoulders and stretchmark-less bellies and tanned legs pop up, I not only worry if my husband will linger over your picture. I worry how he will compare me to you.

As I wrap myself into his arms at night, I wonder if he is seeing you there instead of my mess of a body left over from pregnancy. I wonder if he thinks I’m lazy and that I don’t take good care of myself. I wonder if he wishes I looked more like you than who I really am.

And then the insecurity monster comes back to bite at our relationship again … me, begging for affirmation, and him tiring from saying the same thing over and over.

Did Size Discrimination Get This Woman Kicked Off Instagram? (Hint: Probably)

Samm Newman, a 19-year-old college student, was shocked when she found out her Instagram account had been removed for “violating community guidelines.” A photo she posted of herself in her bra and underwear (which adheres to Instagram’s rules against nudity) was flagged by users as inappropriate. Newman told NBC4i, “I’ve seen [lingerie] pictures like that all over Instagram.” Newman is a size 24 and suspects that size discrimination is the reason action was taken against her account while many thinner women continue to post as many bra selfies as they want. It would hardly be the first time Instagram has booted a plus-size lady’s account for simply posting images of her body. Keep reading »

Khloe Kardashian’s Butt Is The Toast Of Instagram

What is it with the Kardashians and butts? Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend, rapper French Montana, proudly posted an Instagram shot of her derriere yesterday. Apparently, he got the idea from Chris Brown, who surreptitiously took and posted a picture of now on-again-off-again GF Karrueche Tran laying face down in bed wearing just a bra and a thong. The photo has since been deleted, but Tran was apparently so disgusted when she found out that she called it quits on their relationship. (Really, that’s why you don’t want to date Chris Brown?) I’m not sure if Khloé knew what her guy was up to when he posted that photo, but methinks standalone ass snaps are kinda icky and invasive. Celebrity boyfriends of the world, take note. No more surprise ass shots please. [Refinery29]

This Instagram Photo Of Jared Leto Hugging The Whole World Is Everything You Never Knew You Needed

Jared Leto Hugging Things

Last weekend, Jared Leto posted an Instagram photo of himself hugging a tree with a dopey, blissed-out grin on his face. Today, a Photoshopped version of the picture has surfaced with multiple Jareds in it, hugging everything he can find. Is this not exactly what the internet needs on a Friday? [E!

I Am Way Too Excited About Kate Hudson Getting Instagram

Kate Hudson just joined Instagram, and just like everything else Kate seems to put out into the world, her first post is sunny and flawless. It practically screams “I woke up like this, and my carefully fitted crop top was something I just pulled from the bottom of my closet.” Or something like that. I can’t wait for her to post more of her “effortless” life and provide the rest of us with some high-quality escapism. [Refinery 29] [Image via Instagram]

This App Helps Us Get Real About How Many Hours We Spend On Our iPhones

This App Helps Us Get Real About How Many Hours We Spend On Our iPhones

A new app called Moment is an attempt to help us curb our iPhone addictions by telling us exactly how much time we spend staring it at each day. I think most of us don’t realize the massive cumulative impact of the little 5-minute phone checks we do while waiting in line at the store or on the subway platform, because they seem totally innocuous in the moment. I really don’t want to know the ugly truth of how many hours I waste on the little bursts of scanning Instagram and email that I tell myself only take a few seconds from my day — but that’s kind of the point. The fact that I’m so afraid of the number is exactly why I could use a little nudge toward cutting back. Keep reading »

“Fashion Grandpas” Is My New Favorite Instagram Account

Fashion Grandpas is pretty much exactly what it sounds like — an homage to the forgotten art of older men’s fashion. I’m not sure how the account’s creators and contributors have the good fortune of coming across so many stylish men, but it’s clear that the older and wiser among us sometimes have a better sense of what style looks like than, say, 20-something guys and their endless affinity for hipster beards. These stately, sexy dudes look like they stepped straight out of Vogue. Keep rocking it, grandpas. (Check out a few more debonair older dudes after the jump! [Image via Instagram] Keep reading »

This Woman Is So In Love With Her Bradley Cooper Cardboard Cutout That She Made Him An Instagram

Meet Danielle, a New Jersey woman who likes to hang out with a life-size cardboard Bradley Cooper cutout and document it on Instagram because, well, who wouldn’t? Bradley accompanies Danielle on trips to the grocery store, workout sessions, naps on the couch, and even romantic carousel rides. Danielle’s kids hang out with Bradley, too, and sometimes her husband (who seems mildly disinterested in the whole thing) also shows up in her pictures with Brad (see one after the jump!).
