"We don't need to be putting black women against each other!"
The Rihanna Navy and the Beyhive have been on not-so-friendly terms on social media following the announcement of the 2017 Grammy Awards nominations.
Although RiRi expressed gratitude for her whopping eight nods, the Navy felt that she was snubbed after Anti didn't receive a nom for Album of the Year over Beyoncé's Lemonade. Naturally, Bey's fans wasted no time in coming to the defence of their Queen.
But Rihanna quickly cleared things up on the 'gram, commenting on a fan's photo, "I'm petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y'all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don't need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated and the Grammy Academy agrees!"
So true, Rih.
The cast of The Walking Dead.
Spoiler alerts ahead.
Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn on The Walking Dead, is having a much better 2016 than his character.
The actor married his longtime love, Joana Pak, in Los Angeles last weekend and, according to E! News, the couple is expecting their first child together. There's been no confirmation from the pair yet, but in the meantime, here's an adorable photo Yeun posted of his wife on Instagram on their wedding day.
Joana's sister also posted a photo of the happy couple.

How supermodels and Victoria’s Secret Angels stay fit, beautiful and runway-ready:
All of the catwalk cliques—from the Instagirls to the Angels—love going nine rounds. A form of interval training, boxing builds stamina and muscle endurance. No ring nearby? Grab an exercise band. Former boxer Michael Olajide Jr., who works with Adriana Lima at his Aerospace High Performance Centre in NYC, ties them around clients’ ankles while they bob and weave. Even just jabbing will strengthen the lower back and shoulders and help posture, says Justin Gelband of modelFIT, also in NYC, whose clients include Irina Shayk and Miranda Kerr.
Olajide prefers the body-toning cardio of skipping to running; he says it’s easier on the joints and you’ll see results in a third of the time.
CHANGE IT UP
Behati Prinsloo counts squats and sit-ups as top butt kickers, but she’s always up for a change. “I don’t like knowing exactly what I’m going to do because I get lazy,” she says. This mind game benefits the body too: Switching exercises makes you concentrate more and equals faster results, says Gelband.
Because haters gonna hate.
We all know how fun Instagram can be. The comments section though...not so fun. The social media platform (finally!) is working to change all that. Here are the three biggest updates it's rolling out.
1) You can turn comments on and off for individual posts–even after you've posted. One of your posts not getting the love you thought it would? Shut those comments off. Change your mind a few days later? Switch them back on. A few accounts already have this feature, but soon it will be rolling out to everyone.
2) In the past, those with private accounts could only delete followers they'd already approved by blocking them. Now, you can simple remove them as a follower and no, they won't get notified that you did. Think of it as the unfriending of Insta.
3) And now for our favourite update: You can finally like other people's comments! Just tap the little heart icon to show the commenter some love. According to the blog post announcing the new features, being able to like comments "lets you show support and encourages positivity throughout the community."
