It wasn’t long ago that we saw Emma Lung showing off her naked about-to-pop baby belly on Instagram, so we’re not surprised to hear that the Australian actress has given birth.

The Wonderland star took to her Instagram today to show her tiny tot to the world, with a picture of bub, named Marlowe James Zalapa, in a snuggly cable-knit onesie. He’s adorable, that’s for sure, but looks a little bit older than we had imagined for an introductory snap.

That’s because baby Marlowe was actually born on Easter Sunday, April 5, with Emma’s husband, director Henry Zalapa, telling the Daily Mail Australia, “We’ve spent the last few weeks in a bubble getting to know him.” (more…)

In an interview with, Jesinta said, “I’ve chosen the designer of my dress and that’s it – it’s a big secret, though.” Given the timing of her revelation, our money is on Steven Khalil. Jesinta was spotted sitting front row for the designer’s Couture 2015 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week last Wednesday, which happened to have beautiful white gowns walking down the runway.

She’s also quite the advocate of the designer, wearing one of his creations as recently as the 2014 Brownlow Medal last September. She also wore a crisp-white Steven Khalil pick to the 2014 Logies, but had red wine spilled on her by a TV executive just 10 minutes into the event. Let’s hope her guests have a little more respect for her and her dress on the big day.

Instagram Tightens Its Nudity Policies

Amber Rose fans will be disappointed to hear that Instagram has updated its policies, including a ban on showing your bare ass on the social media platform.

Instagram has come under fire for its conservative rules on nudity, including censoring photos of topless women, adding momentum to the #FreetheNipple campaign, for which celebrities like Scout Willis and Miley Cyrus have shown their support. But in spite of the backlash, it appears Instagram is doubling down on its strict rules regarding nudity. “We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks.” Instagram’s policies have upset breastfeeding mothers in the past, so the guidelines make an exception for photos of women feeding their children and pictures of post-mastectomy scarring. 

It looks like it’s going to take a while for Instagram to give in and allow women to show their nipples on the social media site. To a degree, we understand why they would put these rules in place (hey, some people are a bit more prudish than others), but the fact that men with breasts — breasts sometimes as large or larger than some women’s – are free to post topless photos is a bit of a double standard. 

So, Miley and company: soldier on. Your #FreetheNipple work is not yet done.

Michael Bublé Called Out for Body Shaming in a Controversial Instagram Photo

Michael Bublé, your grandmother’s favorite singer, is in some hot water over an Instagram post which has many people accusing him of being a pervert, misogynist and body shamer. 

Bublé posted an image his wife took while they were in Miami which shows him in the foreground with an amused look on his face. In the background is a woman with very short shorts – so short that her butt cheeks are on full display. This young woman appears to be in the checkout line at a store and unaware that she is being photographed.

“There was something about this photo lu took, that seemed worthy of Instagram,” he wrote, with the hashtag #myhumps #babygotback #beautifulbum and more. Many people thought that Bublé was making fun of the woman’s figure. “I hope you and the person that took this pic have perfect bodies,” one commenter sniped. “That’s just mean to laugh at someone and then post it that you’re laughing at them.”

But is this really body shaming? At best, it’s an observation, at worst, it’s an invasion of privacy. You can argue that the woman left the house in those shorts with the intention of drawing attention (it’s not as common to see someone’s butt cheeks out, as opposed to say, extreme cleavage), but whether or not she wore the shorts as an IRL thirst trap (nothing wrong with that), it is a bit disrespectful to take pictures of people without their permission. As one commenter said, “Newsflash: wearing something considered revealing doesn’t give the right for some has-been to exploit her and ridicule her.” But, then again, there are Instagram accounts dedicated to taking pictures of unsuspecting people, some of which are celebrated. You would be hard-pressed to find backlash against an Instagram account like Hot Dudes Reading, which you can argue is a violation of privacy as none of the men photographed appear to have given consent to having their picture taken. 

Bublé does have his supporters. Many commenters saw the backlash as much ado about nothing. “I so don’t understand… why the uproar! He was complimenting her butt, who cares?!” Either way, he has caused an assload of controversy over the picture, which has yet to be taken down and it doesn’t look like he will anytime soon.

UPDATE: Micheal Bublé issued a statement this afternoon regarding the backlash over the photo:

“Anybody who knows me would never misinterpret the message of the photo my wife took in Miami that seems to have caused unexpected rage by some people. I do not court controversy. But I realize that a photo that was meant to be complimentary and lighthearted has turned into a questionable issue. For the record, It hurts me deeply that anyone would think that I would disrespect women or be insulting to any human being.. I was not brought up that way and it is not in my character. I regret that there are people out there who found the photo offensive. That was not and is not my intention. Women are to be celebrated, loved, respected, honored and revered. I’ve spent my life believing that and will continue to do so.”

Are you satisfied with his apology?
