On Father’s Day, John Legend shared photo of Chrissy Teigen — pumping breast milk — with sweet message

John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are a unique brand of couple goals. On the one hand, they're relatable — Teigen has a history of sharing real moments on her social media accounts, like a photo of stretch marks on her thighs and, more recently, one of her in postpartum underwear after the birth of the couple's second baby on May 17, 2018.

Then, on the other hand, they're a completely aspirational pair. Both are gorgeous, talented members of Hollywood's elite, and they support for each other as equal partners in crime. Legend's recent Instagram post is further indication of his admiration for his wife.

On Father's Day, after Teigen shared her own loving tribute to her "best friend and partner always," the 39-year-old took to Instagram to share a photo of his model wife pumping breast milk in the car on their way to dinner. He captioned the image: "I know it's Father's Day and all but my wife is pretty awesome. She's taking me to dinner but still on mommy duty."

The image is the epitome of their relatable-yet-aspirational public persona. It's a candid, off-the-cuff shot, but they look so dapper. Legend's photo is special, though, because it goes beyond his expression for his wife. The support he shows for her helps bring the idea that women should be able to breastfeed in public without criticism or degradation into mainstream consciousness. It helps to normalize breastfeeding and expresses that a woman's body is not lewd for how it sustains a new human life — it's natural, strong and beautiful.

This isn't the first time Legend has stood up for his wife's parenting, either. Last year, the singer-songwriter publicized the double standard he witnessed for new moms versus new dads, calling out people's habit of mommy-shamming while dads go by unnoticed.

So many people idolize Legend and Teigen for their countless positive qualities — hopefully this supportive dynamic for women and new moms will stick with their fans, too.

'Everything Is Love': 3 things we learned from Beyoncé and Jay-Z's surprise album

Just when you thought Beyoncé and Jay-Z were turning their attention to their globe-trotting “On the Run 2” tour, which kicked off earlier this month in Wales, the couple managed to re-direct the conversation with the surprise weekend arrival of “Everything is Love.”

Here are three things we learned from the nine-song release, which is only (currently) available on Tidal, the streaming service partially owned by Jay-Z. Keep an ear out for Migos, Pharrell Williams and Ty Dolla Sign on the album, as well.

>> Jay-Z, Beyonce release surprise album 'Everything Is Love'

1. Jay-Z and Beyoncé do not suffer from a lack of self-confidence. “I said no to the Super Bowl / You need me, I don’t need you / Every night we in the end zone / Tell the NFL we in stadiums, too,” Jay-Z raps in “Ape****,” the first single from the album filmed in an empty Louvre. In the same song, he also admonishes the Grammy Awards; despite his eight nominations in January, he left empty-handed. “Tell the Grammys [expletive] that 0 for 8 [expletive],” he says.

On “Boss,” Beyonce emphasizes the couple’s wealth (as if anyone was questioning that?): “My great-great-grandchildren already rich / That’s a lot of brown children on your Forbes list.”

2. Clearly, the pair has worked through the issues that resulted in Beyonce’s layered, shade-throwing “Lemonade” and Jay-Z’s response, the stark “4:44” (aka, the album nominated for a bunch of Grammys that didn’t win any). 

On “Ape****,” Beyonce frequently drops a, “I can’t believe we made it,” line and revisits it in the bonus track, “Salud!,” singing, “Celebrate that we made it.” The aptly named “Nice” also finds her proclaiming that she and Jay are “feeling like the best year ever.”

3. Jay-Z noted in a New York Times story in 2017 that he and his wife used art as a sort of therapy session to make new music.They’ve now made music to directly respond to rumors and slights, standing tall while they sling their arrows.

On “Heard About Us,” Jay-Z makes a final, exasperated comment about his 23-year-old alleged love child: “For the thousandth time the kid ain’t mine / Online they call me Dad kiddingly / You’re not supposed to take this dad thing literally.” In “Friends,” he calls out the fickle ones who can’t maintain an alliance, and also seemingly alludes to Kanye West, who said he was “hurt” when the Carters didn’t attend his 2014 wedding to Kim Kardashian. 

“I ain't going to nobody for nothing when me and my wife beefing / I don't care if the house on fire … / If ya'll don't understand that, we ain't meant to be friends,” Jay-Z claps back.

Singer Robbie Williams makes obscene gesture at World Cup opening ceremony

English singer Robbie Williams made an obscene gesture toward the camera during the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Moscow, ESPN reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Williams was singing at Luzhniki Stadium when he gestured with his middle finger. The 44-year-old pop star had been criticized before the event for agreeing to participate in the ceremony.

“Robbie Williams emerged, busked his way through a medley of his two-decade old hits and was gone again in a pleasing hurry,” the Independent reported.

Williams said he was told not to use his song “Party Like a Russian,” which was seen as mocking Russia. Before his gesture, Williams added the line “I did this for free,” to the lyrics of one of his songs, ESPN reported.

Fox issued a statement apologizing for showing the gesture on television.

"The 2018 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony was a newsworthy event produced by a third party and carried live on Fox," the statement said. "As it was broadcast live, we did not know what would happen during Robbie Williams' performance and we apologize."

The Russian soccer team played immediately after the ceremony and won its first match, shutting out Saudi Arabia 5-0.

Eminem criticized for using gunshot sounds during Bonnaroo performance

Rapper Eminem has come under fire after he used realistic gunshot sound effects during his performance at the Bonnaroo music festival Saturday night in Manchester, Tennessee, Billboard reported.

Fans, remembering the deadly mass shooting outside a Las Vegas casino last October, screamed and ducked for cover when the gunshot-like sounds were heard during Eminem’s performance of “Kill You,” from his 2000 album “The Marshall Mathers LP.”

Social media star Andrea Russett attended the annual festival in middle Tennessee and tweeted that using those kind of effects at the end of the song was “extremely irresponsible and distasteful.”

“I have grown up loving eminem and his music but i was extremely triggered to the point of tears,” Russett tweeted. “To hear a gunshot sound effect and see the entire crowd drop to the floor out of instinct is not funny, cute, or amusing. this is the sad reality that we are living. this is not funny or even something to be joked about.”

Several fans defended Eminem’s actions, noting that the performer has used the gunshot sound effects for a long time.

"Eminem has ended ‘Kill You’ with the gun shot effects for (at least) 6 years now and this is the first time someone ever complains," one Twitter user wrote.

Eminem has not commented, Billboard reported.
