The social media feeds of our favourite celebs give us basically the same kicks as the social feeds of our best friends and relatives: through them, we get a glimpse of the everyday, ordinary (and sometimes extraordinary) lives of the people we care about.
This week, charming Channing Tatum gave hope to would-be musicians everywhere with his public attempts to master the piano. He’s just two weeks into learning and already has a decent handle on Fur Elise. OK, so he could maybe use a metronome, but it’s coming along.
Meanwhile, we felt reassured by plus-size model Ashley Graham, who posted a candid and very honest photo of her natural self, cellulite and all, to her Instagram feed. She didn’t have to do it, she chose to do it. And we chose to Like it so hard.
And Amy Schumer, who has always wanted (in the most sarcastic, Amy Schumer way) to be a part of the A-List #Balmain squad, visits the zoo and tags the luxury fashion line in all her photos. Hilarious.
Yup, the stars did not disappoint on social media this week, as is their wont. Here’s more from Khloe K, Chris Hemsworth, Sofia Vergara and more.
Lessons? Who needs lessons?
Apparently one of Channing’s New Year’s resolutions was to learn piano, and so he’s teaching himself how to play. Not only that, but he’s giving us and all of his fans a taste of his progress. We’re not sure we’d want the world to watch us awkwardly learn a new musical instrument, but we applaud his honesty.
Khloe Kardashian uses adorable niece (Kimye’s offspring) to promote denim line
We think our nieces and nephews are the most adorable things on earth, too. And if we had our own denim line, we’d totally be be using their sweet little faces to hawk our jeans just like Khloe K. More importantly, can we talk about how much North West looks like her pa!?
Chris Hemsworth sinks epic basketball shot for “greatest day of [his] life”
As if taking a cue from Justin Timberlake’s recent pair of half-court shots, Chris Hemsworth posted a video of him sinking an unlikely shot on his Instagram feed. Good job, Chris, but Justin did it twice in a row… Just sayin’.
Sofia Vergara takes a selfie while filming Modern Family
We’ve always thought that Modern Family looked like a lot of fun to be a part of, and everyone’s favourite (fake) Colombian momma, Sofia Vergara’s recent behind-the-scenes selfie pretty much confirms that.
Ashley Graham owns her lumps, bumps and cellulite in this amazing beach photo
Model Ashley Graham has been in the Philippines for work, but took some time for a bit of beach sitting, as one does. Being a champion of diverse body types, she posted a photo of her thigh cellulite, calling it out in the caption as just another part of her body that she loves. We love you, Ashley…even if we’re a bit jealous that you get to go to the Philippines for work.
Amy Schumer takes a stroll through the New York City zoo
She captioned every photo with the luxury fashion house “Balmain.” Is she wearing a Balmain coat? Or is this a hilarious high fashion joke that’s gone above our heads?
