Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are in the midst of a complete media firestorm. Since their shock announcement, in which they declared they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family, the couple has been hitting the headlines non-stop. And things have only gotten worse for the couple with their latest crisis...

Things have not been going well for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lately.

It all started with the denouncing of their involvement with the royal family and everything else followed suit.

But we have to admit, Meghan and Harry are still one of the most famous couples in the world.

Headlines were made all over the world when the British Royal Family’s Prince Harry announced his romance with the Suits actress, Meghan Markle.

It all started with a blind date...

The couple met back in 2016 when they were set up by a mutual friend who thought the two would hit it off.

And their friend's hunch was apparently right...

Because the pair hit it off, and they immediately arranged to see each other again, eventually going on to have 2 more dates in London.

And, in 2017, after a couple of months of privacy...

The pair officially went public with their relationship.

Meghan was instantly catapulted into the royal spotlight.

Though she was already pretty well known for her role as Rachel Zane in Suits, the California-born actress was thrown into levels of fame that she had never experienced before.

The world quickly became Meghan and Harry obsessed.

And people were delighted to hear the news of their engagement later that year.

And, not ones to waste any time...

The couple officially tied the knot in May 2018.

The ceremony was simply stunning.

The royals aren’t ones to hold back, are they? Harry and Meghan wed in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle, which became one of the most-watched televised events of all time.

Meghan radiated with happiness on her big day...

She looked simply beautiful.

And, not long after the wedding, the newly appointed Duke and Duchess of Sussex had some more exciting news...

They were expecting! On October 15th, 2018, the couple announced their pregnancy.

And, on May 6th, 2019...

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was welcomed into the world.

They make for the cutest little family.

But things haven’t been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing. And it gets worse since the virus outbreak started taking over the world…

Meghan hasn't had the easiest time...

Joining the British royal family was never going to be an easy transition, given that a person has to give up their entire life in order to be a part of the monarchy. But Meghan’s experience has been especially difficult.

Many dedicated royalists weren't happy to see an American woman of colour in the monarchy...

And many attacked the Duchess, slamming her as “fake,” with some going as far as accusing her of breaking up the royal family entirely.

She has also been relentlessly attacked by the press...

To the point where Kensington Palace was forced to issue a statement, pleading for the press and the public alike to take a step back when it comes to their scathing reporting and bombardment of Meghan.

But, this year, the couple have seemingly had enough of the harassment and the criticism...

Because they have announced that they will be officially stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

They made the announcement on their joint Instagram page, Sussex Royal.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the post read.

The couple plan on providing a more "normal" upbringing for Archie...

And have announced that they will be splitting their time between the U.K and North America. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” they wrote.

This is huge news.

And has bound to have ruffled a couple of feathers in Buckingham Palace.

But what exactly have the other royals had to say about their controversial decision?

The Queen released a statement, which read: “My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”

But behind closed doors...

Matters have reportedly been far from smooth sailing.

In fact, reports surfaced that senior royals were left “hurt" by the shock announcement that was made "without warning."

And of course, the news has sparked a whole new wave of criticism to head Meghan’s way.

A family friend made some shocking claims...

Amid accusations that the couple didn’t tell other senior royals of their plans to step back, the source told PEOPLE that the Sussexes felt they had “no choice” but to handle things the way they have. However, their feelings are much stronger than we thought. Keep scrolling to find out why…

The source went on to say that there's so much "bad blood" in the family...

“This is not how they wanted to handle this, but Meghan and Harry’s hand was forced,” the family friend explained. “There is so much bad blood in that family — it’s toxic.”

But what many people have failed to take into consideration...

Is how hard this whole experience must have been for Meghan – a new mother.

Last month, Prince Harry finally broke his silence on the matter.

While attending a charity event, Harry delivered a heartfelt speech about their split from the royal family.

Harry began by addressing the media firestorm that's ensued since he and Meghan announced their split from the royal family.

“Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard or perhaps read over the last few weeks,” Harry said. “So, I want you to hear the truth from me, as much as I can share – not as a Prince, or a Duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the last 35 years – but with a clearer perspective.”

He went on to praise those who have been supportive of Meghan.

“The UK is my home and a place that I love. That will never change. I have grown up feeling support from so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms as you saw me find the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hurray!” “I also know you’ve come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do. And she does, and she’s the same woman I fell in love with. We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride. Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited, we were hopeful, and we were here to serve.”

"I know I haven't always gotten it right."

Harry went on to stress that this decision wasn’t made lightly, but there was no other option. “The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges,” Harry said. “And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.”

"We are not walking away from you."

“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding,” he said. “Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible. I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am. But I hope that helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.” It was confirmed that Meghan and Harry would no longer be using their HRH titles, and are also intending on reimbursing U.K. taxpayers for renovations made to Frogmore Cottage last year.

He also took the time to honor his late mother.

“I was born into this life, and it is a great honor to serve my country and the Queen. When I lost my mum 23 years ago, you took me under your wing,” he continued. “You’ve looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us.” “It has been our privilege to serve you, and we will continue to lead a life of service.”

He ended his emotional speech by praising his family, despite the recent rumors that rifts were forming.

“I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family, for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months. I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me.” “Together, you have given me an education about living. And this role has taught me more about what is right and just than I could have ever imagined. We are taking a leap of faith – thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step.”

But, since the shocking announcement, people are wondering the same thing...

How exactly is the couple planning on being financially independent?

Well...

Of course, we already know they’ll be getting money from Prince Charles, but there were also rumors swirling that the pair were in talks with a Hollywood elite team. However, this won’t be happening any time soon because of the current state of the world. Read on to hear about how the pandemic has changed their lives for the worse…

It seems they've already hit many major hurdles.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple have been told to remove the word “royal” from their branding on both their social media and website.

This could cause huge issues for their trademarked name.

The pair have been trying to gain the international rights to their “Sussex Royal” brand as they prepare to move onto this new stage in their lives.

But, according to reports, the Queen has put her foot down.

The move comes after the Queen allegedly felt it was “inappropriate” for Meghan and Harry to use the word “royal” in their branding given the fact they have chosen to go their own way. But the couples’ initial hard feelings might have been stronger than we thought.

Omid Scobie, Bazaar.com’s royal editor and a journalist in Harry and Meghan’s inner circle said this:

“Things might have been different if a family member or two had stood up for them during the darkest times.”

But apparently, no one did.

He referred to them as “a couple very much hurting”, who were forced to say goodbye to their team. He also mentioned Prince Harry’s heartbreak at giving up his military honors, describing it as “a wound that will take time to heal.”

Things only got worse for the couple as they recently tried to address the pandemic.

Still using their official royal Instagram, they posted this “advice” already given to us by the World Health Organization, writing in the caption: “Around the world, the response from people in every walk of life, to protect and look out for their communities has been inspiring.”

It continued:

“None more so than the brave and dedicated healthcare workers on the frontline, risking their own well-being to care for the sick. Wherever you are in the world, we are all incredibly grateful.”

But it was this part that really had everyone frustrated:

“For all of us, the best way we can support health workers is to make sure we do not make their job any harder by spreading this disease further. No matter where you are, the @WHO have shared some guidelines that can help. You may have seen or heard these before, but they are as important today as ever.”

Many Instagram users took to the comments to troll the couple.

One user insinuated that Meghan herself had written this “ridiculous” post.

While a Canadian user got passionate.

They seem to be blaming Meghan and Harry for infecting the people of the country? Harsh.

The comments didn't end there...

This user accused them of just trying to “stay relevant.”

And they also got called out for being "irritating."

There were thousands more comments like these under the post. We hope both of them are practicing social distancing just like the rest of us.  

And now Harry and Meghan have been hit with another blow.

Their high-profile lifestyle and lack of financial independence seems set to hit the couple hard.

Royal commentator, Omid Scobie has weighed in on what this means for the couple during lockdown.

“They have spent the last few years not earning a living. As a royal, your expenses are covered but you don’t earn a salary. It will be very tough for them especially in the few months ahead,” he explained. The pandemic means it will be harder than ever for Harry and Meghan to find work.

"No-one knows when there is an end date to this."

“This could follow us for some time.”

"For Harry and Meghan, on top of the difficulties they have had with the press, there has been this underlying issue of who pays for security moving forward."

“It is something the couple were very conscious of, that from March 31 it would have to be done by themselves.” With no guaranteed careers for earning a living currently, it’s unclear whether the couple will be able to afford such an expense.

"They didn't want to leave themselves open to further attacks."

It seems there are stressful times ahead for the pair. But they’re no stranger to stress. Scroll on for the leaked footage of Meghan that got the whole internet talking…

Sometimes smiling is all about perspective.

I really hope both you and Humpty Dumpty have great falls this year. You deserve it!

Speaking of perspective...

Maybe that shark that looks like he’s trying to eat you is actually your bud. You never know.

And if we're talking about animal buds...

Is there anything more wholesome than a dad and his dog? I think not.

Wait, I lied there is one thing more wholesome than dads and dogs.

That thing is Steve Irwin, the man we never deserved. I bet he’s in heaven petting stingrays as we speak.

Sharing is caring.

Generosity is about sharing what you have, not about having a lot. Especially if what you have is a cookie.

Grandma has an abundance of love...

But that absolutely does not mean she doesn’t have a favorite. And the favorite is me.

But even if you aren't Grandma's favorite...

That’s not what’s important. What’s important is that you know your own worth. You are a good boy.

Hot take: friend matchmaking is the greatest.

Cool people you love meeting other cool people you love? Sign me up!

Especially when you've got buds who will be there for you through anything.

Meet you in hell pal! It’s always better when we’re together!

For aliens, these guys have good insights.

It’s important to have good self-confidence. Leave yourself post-its that say “beacon of joy” just as a reminder.

This guy is truly a beacon of joy.

He was worried about looking intimidating to his patients so he made a little nametag with his face! Talk about a truly good bedside manner.

Animals don't deserve pollution.

But at least there are kind people like these folks who freed this tangled turtle. He looks so excited to swim free!

Things I didn't know until today:

I need a two-legged cat. I need that two-legged cat to love me the way this cat loves this dog.

If you needed some evidence that primates are pretty intelligent...

Check out this buddy’s reaction to a magic trick. His laugh is my everything!

Not everything that makes you smile is wholesome.

Sometimes it’s a mischievous baby who will never be stopped by walls or cribs or containment. This baby is a free spirit.

Oh, you wanted another example wholesomeness?

This little boy is sweet and sour at the same time.

Ok, we promise not to include too many society-related posts.

But this video of grandparents dancing with their granddaughter after leaving isolation is the purest expression of joy we could find on the internet.

Love comes in many forms.

Maybe it’s dancing with a grandchild, maybe it’s a parrot trying to pet you back.

Look at this picture.

Just look at it. This seal should win an award for best beard. He is perfect.

I dare you not to laugh at this.

Parents embarrassing their children is the funniest thing in the world. At me.

My goal in life is to one day be as satisfied as this lizard with an orange.

Look at his tiny tongue! Just look at it!

A man and his dog...

Both dinosaurs. Because dogs must match their people, this is the law of cuteness.

The best part about this video is that it's just a simple scene.

This is the kind of love so many of us crave: just someone to be there with us and share.

Maybe that sharing is food.

Or maybe it’s sharing a really good episode of Sesame Street because you know your dad likes rock and roll.

You've just got to let down your walls.

Or not, because the cutest things will get past any armor.

And see the world with the gratitude of a dog getting dinner.

It truly is the best dinner ever. Yes, it is the same dinner as always, but that means every dinner is the best dinner ever.

And if that doesn't work get aggressive with your love.

I love you and you better love yourself. Or else. No, it’s not a threat, I’ll just keep telling you I love you.

Because negativity?

It’s garbage, and we don’t hold on to garbage here.

This is 100% me.

I apologize to all my friends for constantly harassing them about how great they are. Oh wait, no I don’t because they deserve it.

And let's end with some sweet old married couple thoughts.

Get yourself a partner who just wants to help you out when you’re struggling.

Meghan Markle has revolutionized the royal family.

Since she started dating Prince Harry back in 2016, the world has become completely obsessed with the former actress.

The pair wed in 2018.

Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex, making her the first mixed-race American woman to ever join the royal family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have worked tirelessly together to fulfill their royal duties...

Since the wedding, Meghan has taken part in many royal tours and visits all around the world. And having her first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor hasn’t stopped her from fulfilling her duties.

Naturally, the world fell in love with the new Duchess...

Her beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women’s charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.

Cracks began to show early, however...

Meghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all the complaints were because she “wasn’t royal enough.” A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn’t attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.

Her dad reportedly hasn't met his grandson yet.

Thomas Markle made claims back in 2018 on British television breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, that Meghan had simply “ghosted” him, saying: “I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand?”

Sources claimed that Meghan cut all ties with her dad...

Sources said that “it’s a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn’t have an active relationship with her father anymore.” “It’s obviously heartbreaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son.”

Meghan was also branded a "diva" since she became royalty.

Reports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.

And, of course, there were reports of her supposed feuds with Kate Middleton...

It was reported that Meghan left Kate “in tears” after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is “fed up” of Meghan’s high-maintenance attitude.

Meghan's parenting style has also been criticized.

She was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her “awkwardly” holding baby Archie – a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.

Meghan's eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart...

And it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.

The Duke and Duchess had no choice but to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail...

This decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could “no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering.”

And, following on from the tabloid scandal, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a shocking announcement in January.

The royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the post read.

The couple will now split their time between North America and the UK.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

This is a huge deal.

And, obviously, their decision has shaken things up. “We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties.”

Twitter exploded with reactions to the news, and they were certainly mixed.

Some were outraged, claiming that Meghan and Harry shouldn’t be able to rely on the taxpayer while they becoming finically independent.

Others praised the royal couple for the move.

The reactions have been strong, to say the least.

Apparently, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.

According to the BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted – including the Queen – and Buckingham Palace is “disappointed.” The report also claims that senior royals are said to be “hurt” by the controversial announcement.

But can they really blame Meghan and Harry for making this decision?

The couple, especially Meghan, have received an unbelievable amount of negative press and comments over the years – which is enough to drive anyone mad.

And it turns out that Meghan struggled a lot more than we realized.

The couple are now spending their time between Canada and the United Kingdom, and reports from Us Weekly suggest that this has done the world of good for Meghan.

Meghan is happy to be away from the vicious reporters back in the U.K.

According to the magazine’s sources, the attention got so bad that Meghan actually feared going outside because she didn’t want to do anything to attract even more negative press.

It is truly devastating to hear what Meghan went through...

They said she “felt trapped and claustrophobic” and suffered from panic attacks because of all the stress.

But thanks to the couple's decision, things have changed for the better.

“Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person,” the source said. “On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore.”

She can now live a normal life.

“Meghan can go out in yoga pants and not be criticized for not following a dress code. She feels more relaxed and loves walking around fresh-faced with barely any makeup on.”

And her new lease of life means that, with Harry by her side, she can focus on the things close to her heart.

Meghan and Harry, who have always been keen philanthropists, have revealed their plans to launch a new non-profit foundation, Archewell.

But, sadly, their latest venture has been put on hold.

As a result of the ongoing medical pandemic, Meghan and Harry have been forced to postpone the official launch of Archewell.    

But their non-profit isn't the only thing that has been disrupted.

Though Meghan and Harry were able to move to LA from Canada just hours before the borders were shut, their hasty move has reportedly devastated Meghan in more ways than one.

The couple are believed to be temporarily staying in a gated community in Malibu Hills with baby Archie...

Which is only around the corner from her mom, Doria, who lives in LA.

Doria is believed to be one of the main reasons for their move to LA...

But, because of the imposed lockdown regulations, Meghan has so far been unable to visit her mom, which will be difficult for any new parent.

This has reportedly left Meghan "heartbroken."

A source close to the royal told The Sun that the Duchess is now “distraught” as she is forced to keep in touch with her mother online or via phone much as she did when she was still in England.

The whole reason behind her move seems futile now.

The insider said: “After all, one of the main reasons she decided to live in LA was to be near her [mom]. They’ve been WhatsApping and FaceTiming almost daily but obviously it’s not the same.”

Meghan will have to wait until the lockdown regulations have been lifted to see her mom.

Hang in there, Meghan! For more on how the royal couple are coping during the pandemic, keep scrolling…

Meghan and Harry, who have always been keen philanthropists, have revealed their plans to launch a new non-profit foundation, Archewell.

Their latest venture will focus on all things "well being."

Archewell, which is the Greek word for “source of action”, will be a charitable nonprofit with volunteering services, a “wide-ranging website,” podcasts, and potentially even films and books, according to The Telegraph.    

The couple want "to do something of meaning, to do something that matters."

And revealed that they want the foundation to provide information in the field of nutrition, general health, and mental health”, along with entertainment.

Because of the ongoing medical pandemic, the official launch of Archewell has been postponed...

But the pair have been working hard on getting the foundation’s official website up and running.

But someone has put a sudden halt to their plans.

Their website was this week hijacked by an internet troll who is now using the page to send an awful and cruel message to Meghan.

The website now links to Kanye West's hit, "Gold Digger".

Not familiar with the track? Well, here it is. According to TMZ, someone set up a redirect on archewellfoundation.com, which instead took visitors to the video for “Gold Digger.”

This was a crude, and pretty obvious dig at Meghan.

Whoever had hacked the site had clearly wanted to tell the world that Meghan is a “gold digger”… Despite the fact, she was a successful and financially stable woman in her own right before she met Harry.

It's a complete low blow.

Especially considering that the website is supposed to be for a non-profit foundation for well being, happiness, and mental health awareness. Not cool. 

The redirect has now been removed.

Let’s just hope Archewell can move forward without any more vicious swipes by internet trolls. For more on how Meghan and Harry are coping throughout the medical pandemic, keep scrolling…

Matthew McConaughey has been well and truly been stepping up during this pandemic crisis.

While millions of us remain in quarantine as a result of the ongoing medical pandemic, the actor has decided to help out those who are less fortunate than himself.

But firstly, let's rewind a few years.

Matthew is best known for being one of Hollywood’s most loved actors and he has graced our screens since the 1990s.

He has made quite a name for himself...

He has starred and co-starred in movies such as How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days (2003), Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009), Magic Mike (2012), Dallas Buyers Club (2013), and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) which have all demonstrated how he is such a versatile actor.

But alongside his talents on-screen...

Matthew is also known for being a generous and compassionate person.

And his most recent acts have certainly shown that...

We are all more than aware of the global pandemic that we are currently living through.

The virus has now infected more than a million people...

And the death rate is rapidly rising day by day. People are now living in fear and despair, and it’s safe to say that things are getting out of control.

Our elderly residents are by far at the highest risk from the deadly virus.

The virus is considered most dangerous to the elderly and those who suffer from existing health issues – which is a lot of the world’s population.

These people are more likely to suffer from serious, and potentially deadly, health issues as a consequence of the virus.

So it is of the utmost importance that they remain quarantined and away from other people.

Our nursing homes have taken a huge hit during the pandemic...

With many members of staff being unable to come into work, they have been needing all the help they can get.

People have been helping out as best as they can...

And thousands of volunteers have been pitching together to somehow assist their elderly neighbors in any way possible.

And, while most have been helping out in more practical manners...

Others have been focusing more on bringing a simple bit of happiness to the lives of the residents.

Now we introduce Matthew McConaughey's first act of kindness...

The actor wanted to give a little back to the quarantined residents at The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living facility in his home-town of Texas. 

While other celebrities of his status have been filming themselves singing and complaining about being isolated in their mansions...

McConaughey decided to use his voice to spread joy in a slightly different, yet more effective way to the others.

He devised together a plan to lift the spirits of those residing at The Enclave...

And what’s more uplifting than a good, old fashioned game of bingo?

The actor, seen here towards the bottom right corner, decided to host a virtual version of the game...

Where residents who were self-isolating in their rooms could all join in via a giant Zoom video call.

Joined by his mom, wife, and 2 children, McConaughey hosted the virtual game...

Where he enthusiastically called out numbers and declared any potential winners.

"We've got an I-24, an I-24..."

As he clarifies the lucky drawn number, 2 residents suddenly shout out “Bingo!”, in which the actor and his family yell in celebration.

It was the most heartwarming moment.

And the look of joy on the residents’ faces was simply undeniable.

And, once their game had finished, the residents had their own words of thanks for the actor...

They wanted to pay tribute to an important message the actor had given to the world last month.

In March, the actor took to Twitter to offer some very wise words regarding the ongoing pandemic.

He reminded everyone that all red lights eventually turn green, saying: “I just want to say, in these crazy times… Let’s take care of ourselves and each other. Let’s not go to the lowest common denominator and get paranoid. Let’s do our due diligence and take the precautions that we need to, to take care of ourselves and those around us.”

So, as a thank you, the residents decided to hold up their own "green lights."

One of the facility’s workers said: “I wanted to say, from all of us, we want to continue to turn a red light into a green light,” as all the players held up their own green pieces of paper with inspirational messages written on the front. 

As they held up their signs, the actor exclaimed loudly...

And sat back in his chair, slowly clapping with a huge smile on his face.

Matthew's kindness has gone such a long way...

And the actor didn’t stop there.

Matthew and his wife, Camila, made a special delivery recently.

The couple has been working closely with Bethenny Frankel‘s disaster relief initiative BStrong to ensure first responders across the United States are getting masks and supplies they need to stay safe throughout this crisis.

They have donated 80,000 face masks to organizations in between Austin and New Orleans.

“Matt and I were able to get approximately 80,000 masks, and it’s a combination of surgical masks and KN95 masks that will be distributed between Austin and New Orleans, where they were getting hit pretty hard as well,” Camila told PEOPLE.

They want to make sure that everyone on the front line is covered...

“It was important for us to make sure that here in Austin, not just the hospitals got them, but also the police department and the fire department as well. In this moment, we’ve got to find ways to help both sides because they’re all on the front line right now and we can’t afford to lose any of them,” she went on to say.

The couple aren't interested in making the most money...

“This is not about raising the hand and saying, ‘Hey, I’ve put this much money in it.’ This is about raising the hand and making people aware that this exists,” Camila explained. “It took me over two weeks to find this cause, so it’s about raising the hand and saying, ‘This exists and guess what? Still time to help.’ And if you can’t help with this, find your own avenue where you can help and feel useful during this time.”

Matthew and Camila went out on Thursday to personally make sure the donated supplies made it to their final destination in Austin, where they live.

Camila posted the video to Instagram, saying: “Our mission is to protect those who protect us, by providing healthcare workers, firefighters, police officers, and others with approximately 80,000 masks needed to battle the virus. Matthew and I, our friends Bill and Tracey Marshall have teamed up with the organization #BStrong. We are passionate about helping first responders from our hometown Austin – Texas, Louisiana and nationwide as we combat this national pandemic. #thisisacrisis.”

It's refreshing to see a couple who truly care about this cause and making a difference to others...

Rather than boasting about the amount of money they have risen and low-key showing off their wealth – which is what a lot of celebrities have been doing in the last few weeks.

We have never needed Hulu more than we do now...

Lockdowns have been implemented all around the world and millions have been left confided indoors… meaning lots of TV-binging will be getting done.

Hulu is one of the most popular streaming services here in the United States...

And it has everything.

Partially owned by The Walt Disney Company...

Hulu was launched in 2007 and since then, the streaming service has come in leaps and bounds offering an endless selection of movies and TV.

Even though the company hasn't stated the size of its library...

It has been estimated that has approximately 1,650 TV shows and over 2,500 movies. Now, that’s a lot of binging!

And what users love so much about the streaming service...

It is constantly updating its library with new and up-to-date content.

And their most recent addition is a pretty special one...

Parasite is now available for users to watch.

For those who aren't familiar...

Parasite is a 4-time Oscar-winning movie that was released in South Korea last year, and it most certainly lives up to that title.

It was written and directed by Bong Joon Ho.

Based in Seoul, the movie follows a poor family, the Kims, who con their way into becoming the servants of a rich family, the Parks. But things don’t turn out as quite expected, and the Kims find themselves digging themselves into an inescapable deep hole.

It is unbelievably gripping...

And Bong Joon Ho’s direction of the whole thing was simply beautiful.

Predictably, reviews of Parasite were phenomenal.

“What I will say is that this film, more than just about any other I’ve seen, put me through so many different emotional states during its 132-minute runtime, and did so without ever feeling muddled or tonally inconsistent. Parts of this movie were hilarious. Parts were heartbreaking. Other parts were insanely suspenseful,” one user wrote on IMDB.

And of course...

Hulu subscribers are overjoyed with the fact that this incredible movie is now ready at the click of a button.

But with the internet being the internet...

There are some people out there who aren’t impressed (somehow) with this new addition.

One Twitter user decided to voice his opinion directly to Hulu.

He simply wrote, “Pathetic movie.” Okay then…

Amazingly, Hulu responded.

“It won… four Oscars…” they wrote back, which is enough said, we must say!

Another user then decided to get involved...

“It’s not in English, no one wants to watch a movie that they literally have to read to understand what’s going on. Sound is such a huge part of movies and it being in a different language is so weird,” they ignorantly wrote.

And this is when Hulu completely shut down these narrow-minded people.

“If you don’t want to read subtitles, you can always learn Korean!” they simply wrote. Mic drop.

There is a reason why Parasite won so many awards...

And for someone to judge a movie because it isn’t in English is extremely ignorant and narrow-minded.

Twitter users were delighted with this response...

And we all feel that whoever was behind the Hulu Twitter account well and truly put these people in their place.

Subtitles shouldn't be a reason to not watch a movie...

Especially one like Parasite!

Between calling it the "Chinese" virus and playing down the severity of the pandemic...

Trump hasn’t exactly been praised for his handling of the ongoing medical crisis.

Trump has remained valiantly confident in America's resilience to the virus.

In January, shortly after the initial outbreak, he was quizzed on his thoughts on the virus, in which he replied: “It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”

And, even when the number of cases here in America started to climb...

He remained calm, and repeatedly stressed that there was nothing to be too worried about.

Trump has persistently fought against the media regarding the pandemic.

And, at one point, even dubbed the virus as being a “fake news media” conspiracy.

And, as the months trickled by...

President Trump simply wouldn’t budge from his stance on the virus and even went on to compare it to the common flu. This was perhaps one of his most dangerous and false statements about the virus, and caused plenty of outrage amongst both Americans and people all over the world.

And, the very next day, the President was accused of "lying" to the American public regarding free medical testing.

“When people need a test, they can get a test,” he said earlier this month. “When the professionals need a test, when they need tests for people, they can get the test. It’s gone really well.” However, this certainly wasn’t the case, and millions of Americans, to this day, are still struggling to get tested for the virus.

Things needed to change.

And fast. As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths grew here in the States, people were growing increasingly more concerned with Trump’s blaze attitude regarding the pandemic.

But, thankfully, Trump seemed to have a sudden change of heart.

On March 13th, mere days after he compared the pandemic to the common flu, he finally declared a national emergency.

This move freed up around $50 billion in federal funding...

And promised a new screening website and more drive-by medical tests.

It seems that now, President Trump is finally taking the pandemic seriously.

In a press conference last month, Trump admitted: “We have a problem that a month ago nobody ever thought about.”

The President has been doing some serious backtracking.

And insisted that he “felt it was a pandemic long before it was declared a pandemic.”

Yet, despite his sudden change of heart, his stance on the matter seems to have still riled a lot of people up.

Including, former president, Barack Obama, who chimed in on the topic last week.

Obama first tweeted about the matter...

And he didn’t hold back.

It seems he thinks Trump has been downplaying the pandemic.

“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic,” he wrote, without directly naming the president.

He continued:

“We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall,” he added, linking to an article below announcing the rollback of environmental mileage standards put in place by the former president 8 years ago.  

And he wasn't finished there.

Obama has yet again taken a subtle, yet pretty obvious swipe at the President’s handling of the pandemic.

On Thursday, Obama took part in a virtual meeting arranged by Bloomberg Philanthropies...

In which he gave advice to a group of America’s Mayors on how to effectively be a leader throughout the pandemic.

He first urged them to consistently "speak the truth."

“Speak the truth. Speak it clearly. Speak it with compassion,” he said. “Speak it with empathy for what folks are going through.” It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is definitely one of Trump’s downfalls…

He then went on to warn them of the "biggest mistake" a leader can make in this crisis.

“The biggest mistake any [of] us can make in these situations is to misinform, particularly when we’re requiring people to make sacrifices and take actions that might not be their natural inclination.” Burn.

Though no names were called...

It was pretty obvious that he was referring to Trump’s frequent, and rather embarrassing blunders and mistakes during his press conferences.

He finished by reminding them to surround themselves with smart people.

“The more smart people you have around you, and the less embarrassed you are to ask questions, the better your response is going to be.”

Is it time for an Obama mic drop yet?

For more on our former president, keep scrolling to hear how he potentially predicted this pandemic back in 2014…

As of today, at the time of writing, the U.S. has a total of 470,958 cases of the virus...

Including 16,804 known deaths.

The states appear to have become the new epicenter of the pandemic...

And without a doubt have become the hardest hit.  

President Trump's goal of having the nation "opened up and just raring to go by Easter" seem further away.

Trump has repeatedly expressed how eager he is to lift lockdowns within weeks, despite warnings from experts and doctors that if the nation returns to work, cases could spike once again.

New York is the hotspot for coronavirus cases here in the States.

According to the BBC, New York now has more coronavirus cases than any single country outside the US.

New York state alone has accounted for 159,937 cases...

And 7,067 deaths.  

The world is not prepared.

This is certainly a worrying time for all those in America and across the globe.

It's especially worrying for those due to give birth anytime soon.

As they’re born amidst a pandemic.

Being in hopsital it is possibly more likely for mum or baby to catch the virus.

Which is the last thing you want for a newborn baby.

However, one hospital in Bangkok has an idea to help protect the babies.

They are equipping newborn babies with plastic face shields in the hope of helping to protect them against the virus.

Nurses at the Praram 9 Hospital in Bangkok began posting photos of the nurses with the babies in a protective shield.

As it is such a good idea, it didn’t take long for others to catch on.

As another hospital in the Samut Prakarn province has also adopted the same technique.

This comes as Thailand saw an increase of 50 new coronavirus cases as well as the death of a 43-year-old woman.

Since the outbreak lost control in January, Thailand has reported a total of 2,473 cases and 33 fatalities.

Fairly low in comparison to some other countries.

The projective shields were such a good idea that Praram 9 Hospital has to share it.

Hopefully inspiring others to try it.

On its Facebook page, they wrote:

“We have extra protection measures for little ones and friends, with face shield for newborns. So cute!”

And we must say...

We agree, a good idea and they look very cute! For a more uplifting look at the current pandemic…scroll on.

We are living in dark and devastating times.

The world has been brought to its knees by a destructive medical pandemic which, after 3 months, is still showing no signs of improving anytime soon.

Over a million people have been infected with the virus...

And, tragically, 97,000 more have passed away.

Hundreds of thousands of families all over the world are grieving the loss of their loved ones...

But have been unable to provide proper send-offs or achieve any form of closure.

As a result of the lockdown and self-isolation regulations...

The way in which people grieve and get closure from their loss has been impacted massively.

This has been making things even more difficult.

Not only are people losing their loved ones, but they have also been unable to grieve properly, too.

Firstly, those in the hospitals aren't allowed any visitors.

So this means that the majority of people dying are having to dye alone, without their family and loved ones surrounding them.

And the way in which we conduct funerals has been impacted massively, also.

The attendance of funerals has been limited drastically, meaning that only immediate family members are able to attend.

This means that as little as 2 people are able to attend some funerals...

And even they have to abide by the strict social-distancing measures implemented by the government.

It's a truly devastating time for all those in mourning.

But, for one family in the United Kingdom, the unthinkable happened at the restricted funeral of a loved one.

Sixty-three-year-old Julie Murphy passed away last month after a long battle with MS and dementia.

And last Tuesday, her funeral was held at Atherstone Cemetery in her hometown of Warwickshire where, as a result of lockdown restrictions, only a handful of immediate family members were able to attend.

Julie had 4 children...

3 of whom attended the service. One of her daughters, Sadie, had recently had a kidney transplant, so she was unable to attend due to virus risks.

However, one of her daughters began feeling unwell during the service.

Thirty-two-year-old Laura Richards began feeling chest pains as her mum’s coffin was lowered into the ground.

At first, her family put it down to stress and anxiety.

Which is understandable at a funeral. Her sister, Lisa, told  the Sun Online: “Everyone was really upset and Laura said she was light-headed and had pains in her chest. We thought it was just anxiety at first.”

But things quickly deteriorated.

Lisa continued, “They were lowering my mum into the ground and Laura suddenly said ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.'”

Laura suddenly collapsed there and then at the service.

Horrified family members scrambled to save Laura, with one performing CPR and the other hastily calling an ambulance – But their efforts were sadly to no avail.  

"But there was nothing that could be done, she had a massive heart attack."

Devastatingly, Laura was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Her family are still reeling from the shocking event.

Lisa said, “To lose your sister at your mum’s funeral – it’s like a horror film. She was only thirty-two.”  

The timing of her death was simply horrifying.

And will likely leave a lasting impact upon the family’s life. Lisa explained, “I can’t get my head around that it happened just as mum’s coffin was being lowered. It’s just horrible. It’s wrong.”

It turns out that Laura had been suffering from an existing heart condition...

But her half-sister, Sadie, thinks she died of a broken heart. “She hadn’t been out of the house until the funeral. Losing mum must have really affected her. I think her body just gave up on her.”

Rest in peace, Laura.

Sadie paid tribute to her sister, saying: “She would do anything for anyone and she would make everyone laugh. I keep looking out of my window thinking she’ll turn up in a taxi to say hello. I don’t want their deaths to be in vain.”

We've seen press briefings happening consistently at The White House recently.

Officials, including President Trump, gather to talk over the approach to the current pandemic.

In one briefing that happened on Tuesday, we saw something quite surprising.

Something from Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Dr. Fauci is one of the most prominent members of the Task Force for The White House.

And he is widely regarded as one of the world-leading experts on infectious diseases.

During Tuesday's conference, we saw Dr. Fauci praise the LGBTQ community in front of Vice President, Mike Pence.

A rather forward move, given what Mr. Pence has supported during his career.

Dr. Fauci praised the community for their "incredible courage and dignity and strength and activism" during the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

A statement that came after he had discussed the disproportionate effects of the virus on African-Americans.

Dr. Fauci had said "When you're in the middle of a crisis like we are now with the virus, it really does ultimately shine a very bright light on some of the real weaknesses and foibles in our society,"

At which point he made the comparison of how the LGBT community was affected by the AIDs epidemic.

Fauci even added that at the time, there was an extraordinary stigma, particularly against the gay community.

Under the watchful eye of Pence, he said, “And it was only when the world realized how the gay community responded to this outbreak with incredible courage and dignity and strength and activism — I think that really changed some of the stigma against the gay community, very much so.”

It's a topic that Dr. Fauci knows a lot about having advised 6 presidents on HIV/AIDS.

One of which was on the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program that leads to saving millions of lives throughout the developing world.

Given Mr. Pence's history of support.

It was a interesting move to make, one that Mr. Fauci seemed unfazed by.

Mike Pence has previously supported many anti-LGBT laws throughout his career.

Some of his previous support includes the backing of legislation that would jail same-sex couples for applying for a marriage license.

He also tried to use AIDS funding to pay for gay conversion therapy.

Whilst a governor of Indiana, Pence signed a “religious freedom” law. This allowed business owners to discriminate against LGBT customers.

This isn't the only time that Mr. Pence has listened to people criticizing homophobia in front of him.

Possibly some are even an indirect dig at the Vice President.

Pence has also been directly criticized.

Last year, the Minister of Defense in the Government of Ireland, Leo Varadkar, who is openly gay, made a comment directly aimed at Pence.

Leo Varadkar said that he should be "judged by my political actions, not by my sexual orientation".

Adding that he is from a “country where freedom and liberty are cherished.”

Leo Varadkar further said "We are, after all, all God's children", challenging Pence's religion.

It seems that there are many who are willing to challenge homophobia in front of Pence after all. Keep scrolling for more on the White House, and who may be getting a pardon fro President Trump himself…

This is the worst pandemic our world has seen in decades.

The deadly virus has completely taken over the world and it has been spreading at an alarming rate.

World leaders have been left with no choice but to bring their countries to a total stand-still...

And many have now banned large and crowded events, including any travel to and from infected countries.

It didn't take long for the virus to reach us here in the States.

Our first case was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.

And, since then, the numbers have been rising at a frightening pace.

Since the first case in Washington, there have been 400,000 more confirmed cases across the country.

Yep, things are deadly serious...

And many people have been descending into mass hysteria over the risks the virus brings with it.

The importance of self-isolation has been stressed globally...

And it has been proven that locking down public areas and avoiding social situations has helped reduce the chances of spreading the already out of control virus.

But it seems that not everyone feels the need to abide by these suggestions...

Scenes last month at the Clearwater Beach in Florida showed that a lot of people have completely disregarded these global warnings.

Images from the white-sand beach showed spring breakers enjoying the sun...

And even though many beaches in this area have been closed due to the pandemic, visitors still flocked anyway.

Some people just don't quite realize the extent of this situation...

With 14,550 positive cases of the virus in the state of Florida, many of whom are teens or in their early twenties, the Centers for Disease Control has advised that all events with more than 50 people attending should be canceled – meaning people need to start taking this very seriously.

But despite the rapid rise in deaths and consistent warnings from health officials...

Many people continue to ignore the social distancing rules and go about their days as they please.

Officials have made it perfectly clear that mass gatherings are not allowed to happen until further notice...

And this includes religious gatherings, such as going to church on a Sunday.

Of course, this has proven to be extremely hard for many of us...

But we need to accept the fact that these lockdowns have been implemented to save lives, and abusing the rules of them is a very selfish thing to do.

Authorities around the world are using different methods to control the number of people wandering around during these lockdowns.

These methods range from fines to convictions, depending upon the severity of the case.

These rules are also in place in the U.K.

The U.K. has been experiencing an influx of nice weather over the last few weeks which, as you can imagine, isn’t ideal for the nation who are currently in lockdown.

The U.K. government has warned citizens to not be spending time outside...

Despite the temptations of the sunshine and high temperatures.

But some Brits have taken it too far.

After a man brutally attacked police officer as they tried explaining the lockdown rules to him.

Police were called to Rochdale, in Greater Manchester on April 9th on the account of a man causing a disturbance.

When they arrived they explained the lockdown rules to him, emphasizing that under the government guideline he should not be visiting other people’s homes.

Whilst attempting to talk with the man, 2 police officers where punched.

Assaulted for doing their job.

One of the police officers was then badly bitten.

The 21-year-old police constable had to be taken to hospital to be checked over.

Fortunately, they were discharged and sent to recover at home.

But it could have easily been much worse.

The man was consequently arrested on suspicion of criminal damage, domestic violence assault, section 18 assault with intent to resist arrest and regulation 8 of the Health Protection Regulation 2020.

The 29-year-old then remained in police custody for later questioning.

The incident is a stark difference to the praise the UK's emergency service has received over the past few weeks.

With the country gathering outside of their homes to clap for them once a week.

Supt Richard Hunt, of GMP’s Rochdale district, said: “No police officer should have to come to work – doing a job to serve and protect our communities – and be assaulted."

The Manchester Evening News reported that he also added, “It is absolutely disgusting that my officer was faced with this last night and all of our thoughts are with her as she rests at home.”

The police force released an image of the bite showing the severity.

Supt Richard Hunt also added “I recognize that the pictures we are releasing today are quite graphic but I hope they help people to understand the vicious nature of this attack and I know that the people of Greater Manchester will join me in wishing our officer a fast and peaceful recovery.”

Given the current situation, we should all be helping to make the jobs of key workers easier...

Not harder. Police in the U.S. have also come under attack recently for a different reason. Keep scrolling to find out why so many people complained…

Every country has its individual cuisines.

Some are more unique than others.

France is a place where you can try snails.

In Spain, you can try paella.

And in China, you could try eating dog meat.

Yes, really.

Although, this might not be for much longer.

China has plans to stop the slaughtering of dogs for meat.

For many years, the consumption of dog meat has been rife in China.

Eating dog meat is not yet illegal in mainland China.

But, the Chinese government has now signaled towards the consumption of dog meat coming to an end.

It comes as The Ministry of Agriculture released new draft guidelines that have a revised list of livestock animals, that does not include dogs.

The list does, however, include 18 other animals as livestock.

The 18 other animals include cattle, pigs, poultry and camels.

The guidelines by The Ministry of Agriculture described dogs as "specialized companions."

In the draft, they wrote: “As far as dogs are concerned, along with the progress of human civilization and the public concern and love for animal protection, dogs have been ‘specialized’ to become companion animals, and internationally are not considered to be livestock, and they will not be regulated as livestock in China.”

The draft comes after southeastern Chinese town, Shenzhen was the first to introduce a permanent ban of cat and dog meat.

The ban in the city is on the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat.

Despite the delicacy trade thriving in some regions.

It no longer does in Shenzhen, a city 12.5 million residents.

The ruling was explained as 'a requirement of modern society'.

LadBible reported that a spokesperson for the Shenzhen government said, “Dogs and cats as pets have established a much closer relationship with humans than all other animals, and banning the consumption of dogs and cats and other pets is a common practice in developed countries and in Hong Kong and Taiwan.”

The ban comes as China responded to the current pandemic by putting a ban on wild animal markets to prevent people from becoming infected.

With the possibility of it being upgraded to a permanent ban once the pandemic settles.

The possibility of banning dog meat will come with celebrations from many animal rights activists.

Wendy Higgins of Humane Society International (HSI) told The Guardian that the possibility could be a “game-changer moment for animal welfare in China”.

If the ban is signed into law it will save millions of dogs per year.

And also see an effect on the controversial Yulin Dog Meat Festival which happens every year in June.

The declaration shows that the country is beginning to move in the right direction.

Now, we just have to wait and see if the law passes. Keep scrolling to see the adorable pup collecting snacks for his family during lockdown…

As of today, the U.S. has nearly 500,000 active cases of the deadly virus.

This also includes 16,967 known deaths – the highest number of deaths in one country.

Our country appears to have become the new epicenter of the pandemic...

And without a doubt, we have become the hardest hit as of last month.  

This news comes just weeks after President Trump said he wants the nation "opened up and just raring to go by Easter."

Trump has repeatedly expressed how eager he is to lift lockdowns within weeks, despite warnings from experts and doctors that if the nation returns to work, cases of the virus could spike once again. Little did he know…

New York seems to be the hotspot for coronavirus cases here in the States.

So much so, that last week, those who have been in New York, specifically, the New York metro area, are being asked to quarantine for fourteen days.

New York state alone has accounted for 159,937 cases...

And 7,067 deaths – most of which have occurred in New York City.

According to a New York doctor, the number of patients on ventilators "more than doubled" in the last 2 weeks.

Dr. Craig Smith, chair of the department of surgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York City, explained, “We have not exhausted our existing supply of ventilators but if we keep doubling every three days, we might.”

It's safe to say that the city is struggling...

But in the typical New Yorker fashion, communities are powering on through these difficult times.

It's no secret that healthcare workers are being worked to their limits...

This is a problem occurring all over the world, but in New York City, healthcare workers have been buckling under the rapidly rising numbers of infected people and, ultimately, dealing with those who are losing their lives. They are putting their lives on the line every single day to save others, which is truly remarkable.

And as a big sign of thanks recently...

The Empire State Building was lit up with red lights to commemorate these heroic people working on the front line.

It created a real sense of unity and strength...

And it delivered a powerful message that encouraged the world to stay strong and stick together during these hard times.

But despite these beautiful acts of unity...

Things continue to deteriorate.

It is a terrible reality that the deaths are so prevalent in New York City...

And the death toll is rising rapidly day by day.

Morgues within the state are struggling to cope...

And under this immense pressure, the city has shortened the amount of time it will hold unclaimed remains before they are buried in the city’s public cemetery.

A mass burial site has been built...

Under the new policy, the medical examiner’s office will keep bodies in storage for just fourteen days before they’re buried in the city’s potter’s field on Hart Island.

Normally, about twenty-five bodies a week are interred on the island.

These are for people who cannot afford a funeral or for those who go unclaimed by relatives.

But burial operations have increased massively over the last few weeks...

They have increased from one day a week to 5 days a week, with around twenty-four burials each day, said Department of Correction spokesman Jason Kersten.

This means that bodies are being buried in mass graves.

Nine News Australia took ariel footage of these graves and it is truly heartbreaking to witness.

City officials haven't explained whether the increase in burials is due to pressure on mortuaries to dispose of bodies more quickly.

Around forty caskets were lined up for burial on the island on Thursday, and two fresh trenches have been dug in recent days.

People have been left shocked by the footage...

And it has truly painted a picture of the harsh realities of this deadly pandemic.

This is utterly heartbreaking and it is a huge reality check for our country.

Keep scrolling for further pandemic updates…

Millions of people all over the world are currently in self-isolation.

In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.

The pandemic has been spreading at an alarming rate...

And now, over 1 million people globally have been infected with the virus and a further 96,791 people have tragically died.

Self-isolation has now been deemed as the most effective way of combating the virus.

While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.

Due to how easily the virus is spread, remaining isolated is the safest option for many...

And millions are now quarantining themselves at home for months at a time.

Many have been forced to temporarily leave their jobs amid the health crisis...

And have no option but to sit in their homes and think of ways to stay entertained.

Most of us are finding self-isolation rather boring...

It turns out that all the Netflix in the world isn’t even enough to keep us entertained for 2 weeks.

And many are struggling with being cooped up in the house for so long...

Dogs, we finally feel your pain.

But many governments around the world are encouraging us to take this extremely seriously.

As boring as it is staying indoors, it is potentially saving hundreds of thousands of lives by doing so.

There have been many rumors surrounding the number of people dying from the virus...

And many have been saying that you can only die from the virus if you are either elderly or you suffer from underlying health conditions.

It is, of course, undeniable that vulnerable people are at the highest risk...

But this shouldn’t be seen as a blessing by younger people, who are still able to contract the virus, pass it on, and also suffer from complications.

However, Bill O'Reilly has made some rather controversial comments recently about the victims of the virus.

Bill O’Reilly is best known for his previous position as being a host for FOX News, but a lot of controversy surrounds the former news anchor after a series of sexual assault lawsuits were filed against him over the last few years.

He was also accused by his own daughter of being domestically violent towards his wife...

All of which he denied, of course.

O'Reilly is yet to be found guilty and he continues to be an active political figure...

And his controversial comments came during a conversation with FOX News’s Sean Hannity on Wednesday as the number of U.S. deaths from the disease neared 15,000.

The pair were discussing social distancing...

“I don’t want to sound callous about that,” said O’Reilly. “The [U.S death] projections that you just mentioned are down to 60,000, I don’t think it will be that high—13,000 dead now in the USA.”

"Many people who are dying, both here and around the world, were on their last legs anyway," the former news anchor said.

Sean Hannity cautioned, “You’re going to get hammered for that,” to which he replied that he did not care. “You mean people that have underlying conditions and that have compromised immune systems.”

Understandably, people aren't happy with his comments...

And many have been taking to Twitter to remind the world of what O’Reilly is really capable of.

He has been labeled as a "disgrace"...

And many have found his comments to be insensitive and offensive.

O'Reilly needs to face the consequences of his actions...

And not only of his words but also of the vile crimes that he has committed over the years.

He is yet to comment on the backlash.

In the meantime, keep scrolling for the most recent pandemic updates…

Aged just eighteen, Billie Eilish has taken the music industry by storm.

She’s been writing and creating her own music since she was incredibly young, and has risen to fame with huge hit album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? that was released in March, 2019.

She's known for being somewhat of a quirky character...

Billie was home-schooled, so she didn’t get the chance to interact with others of her own age apart from her siblings until she started to make waves in the music scene, which has given her something of a unique outlook on the world.

It also gives her music a different sound...

Many are pretty shocked that such a young person could create such hauntingly catchy tunes – and such suggestive lyrics.

Her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, ranked at number 1 on the charts.

Most artists have to release a couple of albums and dedicate their lives to promoting their work before they are even recognized as an artist, but then there’s a lucky few, like Billie, who reach superstardom on their first attempt. When the album was released, she wrote, “This album [means] the world to me please take care of it.”

But that wasn't even the first time that we saw her climbing the charts...

Her introductory EP, Don’t Smile at Me, went all the way to slot fourteen, and has already been awarded gold, an achievement that many artists can only dream of receiving.

Her most recent single Everything I Wanted has been a huge success...

And we must say, it is an incredibly beautiful song.

But, it's safe to say, Billie is as famous for her image as she is for her music...

She doesn’t dress like your typical eighteen-year-old-girl, that’s for sure.

She is known for rocking some pretty out-there looks...

Like this full white suit complete with Powerpuff Girl embroidery, which she pairs with some signature tiny sunglasses. Weird – but it kind of works?

Or what about this full green ensemble?

We have to say, love it or hate it, you can’t deny Billie’s commitment to her look – and that’s not something many of us are brave enough to pull off.

And Billie doesn't just experiment with fashion...

The star is no stranger to getting creative with her hair – opting for more out there looks and colors to fit her quirky aesthetic.

She donned silver hair for some time...

If anything, it was this look that became her trademark around 2017.

But more recently, she has been rocking something very eye-popping...

Billie has been sporting neon green roots.

This seems to be a favorite of hers...

Because she’s rocked the neon green for quite some time now.

But it turns out that there's a reason behind Billie's quirky look...

Her choices in fashion – which strongly consist of baggy, oversized clothes – are picked to protect herself from her global audience body-shaming her and judging her on her natural appearance.

Speaking in an interview last year, Billie explained these choices...

“That’s why I wear baggy clothes,” she said. “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘she’s slim-thick,’ ‘she’s not slim-thick,’ ‘she’s got a flat a**,’ ‘she’s got a fat a**.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”

And we honestly don't blame Billie for having this attitude.

But sadly, people have already attempted to exploit and body-shame the teenager. Even when she was as young as fifteen, online trolls were trying to sexualize her for no apparent reason.

It's terribly sad that the singer has to put up with this treatment...

And it is a harsh reality that young women in the spotlight are always targeted by older people.

Many of these perverts have tried to blame her lyrics.

But let me get this straight. Just because there’s a line in her song “bad guy” that reads: “bruises on both my knees for you,” it’s now acceptable to start sexualizing her? I really don’t see the correlation here.

Billie has the right to write about whatever she wants...

There’s no excuse for sexualizing a seventeen-year-old… Or any woman of any age, for that matter.

But, when discussing the topic, Billie has said in the past that she doesn't want to remain covered up forever.

“I’m going to be a woman. I want to show my body,” Eilish told Elle in an interview last year. “What if I want to make a video where I want to look desirable?”

She said that, upon turning eighteen, she wants the option to sometimes reveal her body.

But she understands the repercussions a move like that could bring. “I know it would be a huge thing,” she said in the interview, adding, “I know people will say, ‘I’ve lost all respect for her.'”

Well, in December last year, the pop sensation turned eighteen.

And we have been yet to notice any changes in her fashion sense and clothing choices.

Until now.

Billie kicked off her Where Do We Go world tour in Miami earlier this year, where she premiered a powerful video about body shaming.

The video was showcased during the interlude of her debut show...

And showed Billie slowly taking off her clothes alongside a powerful message voiced by the singer.

A video of Billie standing in an over-sized black sweater was projected over the stage...

And, narrating the video, Billie’s voice can be heard questioning everyone who has ever body-shamed her.  

Fans can be heard cheering and screaming as the video shows Billie start to slowly remove layers of clothing.

Her narration starts by saying: “You have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body.”

Billie's speech moved on to discuss her own personal experiences with fame and body-shaming, as she said:

“Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it, some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me — but I feel you watching. Always, and nothing I do goes unseen, so while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sigh of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move.”

And, as she gradually removes more clothing and exposes her chest in a plain black vest, she questions:

“Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips?”

The crowd consistently screams and shrieks throughout the full clip...

As Billie’s narration continues: “The body I was born with – is it not what you wanted? If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why?”

Billie continues:

“We decide who they are. We decide what they’re worth. If I wear more; if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What does that mean?”

Billie can then be seen fully removing her shirt and standing motionless in a black sports bra.

And, as the crowd screams and applauds, the video is drawn to a close with the simple questions, “Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”

You can watch the full video here, which was filmed by one of the concert-goers in Miami.

It’s a truly powerful statement, and it’s fantastic to see Billie taking ownership and control of her own body.  

But, of course, her decision wasn't without the risk of backlash.

Any woman taking control of her body was bound to trigger some people, and Billie has fared no differently.

Though most people praised the singer for her video...

Others weren’t so impressed and claimed that, because of her showing her shoulders, stomach, and chest, they had ultimately “lost respect for her.” I know, some people lead some really sad lives, don’t they?

But now, she has responded to these haters.

And, never one to hold back, Billie gave a spectacular reply to all those who claim to have “lost respect” for her.

And it turns out that she couldn't care less about what these people think of her.

In an interview with Dazed, Billie opened up about the incident and pointed out that, no matter what she wears, she’s going to receive hate and backlash.

She has realized that she simply can't win.

So she now does whatever the hell she wants to. She explained, “If I wore a dress to something, I would be hated for it. People would be like, ‘You’ve changed, how dare you do what you’ve always rebelled against?’ I’m like, ‘I’m not rebelling against anything, really.’ I can’t stress it enough. I’m just wearing what I wanna wear.”

She now just does what she wants to do.

Whether it be to wear more baggy clothes, wear more revealing clothes, or wear hardly any clothes at all, it will be her own decision. “If there’s a day when I’m like, ‘You know what, I feel comfortable with my belly right now, and I wanna show my belly,’ I should be allowed to do that.”

The young singer is truly paving the path to a more equal and inclusive world for women...

Never change, Billie. While on the topic of powerful women, keep scrolling to read the stories of the fifty most iconic feminists…

It's no secret that Demi Moore has had a turbulent few years...

But it is also no secret that she and her ex-husband, Bruce Willis, have maintained a close relationship since their divorce in 2000 – despite the ongoing drama in Demi’s life.

The pair spend a lot of time together...

And being in a lockdown isn’t going to keep them apart.

But firstly, let's rewind to last year...

Demi released her memoir, Inside Out, on September 24th 2019 and it gained a huge amount of attention worldwide.

In her own words, she told her story...

And not just the trivial things we all know from the tabloids. Demi went deeper into the prominent life events that impacted the decisions she was to make in the future.

From substance abuse, to her health, to her relationships...

We all know that celebrities tend to wear that mask of perfection, but none like the one Demi kept up for years. What else what she supposed to do?

However, things eventually catch up.

And here we are today. Inside Out emphasized that, despite the turmoil, there is no surrender, only success. You must keep pushing forward until you reach that stage where you’re at peace, if not resolve.

And, suddenly, you're blessed with an emotionally charged masterpiece such as this one.

Inside Out’s official synopsis reads: “For decades, Demi Moore has been synonymous with celebrity. From iconic film roles to high-profile relationships, Moore has never been far from the spotlight—or the headlines.”

It continues...

“Even as Demi was becoming the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, however, she was always outrunning her past, just one step ahead of the doubts and insecurities that defined her childhood. Throughout her rise to fame and during some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Demi battled addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma that would follow her for years—all while juggling a skyrocketing career and at times negative public perception.”

"As much as her story is about adversity, it is also about tremendous resilience."

“In this deeply candid and reflective memoir, Demi pulls back the curtain and opens up about her career and personal life—laying bare her tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with raising a family, and her journey toward open-heartedness.”

Demi first found fame as a model...

At age sixteen, she found herself on the cover of an adult magazine because she lied about being eighteen. She continued to feature in other adult issues.

But that career was shortlived as she quickly moved into the world of acting.

Demi’s film career took off in 1984, when she starred in the comedy Blame It On Rio. She was quickly propelled to superstardom when she found herself playing the lead in films that defined the ’00s.

Ghost (1990) became her most successful film and continues to be to this very day.

The fantasy thriller plays host to one of the most iconic scenes to have ever hit the big screen. You remember it, right? The pottery scene? Yeah, I knew you would.

Demi then went on to star in some more blockbuster smashes.

Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003), Very Good Girls (2013), and Rough Night (2017), just to name a few.

But, throughout this time, Demi was also battling her own demons.

In the memoir, she revealed several heartbreaking things that left readers stunned. From the breakdown of her marriages with Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher to the time that she passed out at a party when she had smoked cannabis.

All of these things have one reoccurring theme...

Throughout her life, Demi never felt like she was good enough. Not for herself, or anybody else. It seems as if it stemmed from the depths of her childhood.

In a section of the book, the actress revealed some shocking details about an event that took place when she was only fifteen...

The relationship she had with her mother, Virginia King, was always pretty rocky. But nothing seemed to define it more than this.

While she and her mother were living together in an apartment, a man befriended them.

Demi admitted that the friendship he offered made her feel “slightly uneasy,” and on the day that she got home and he was just sat in her home, she never felt more uncomfortable in her life.

She later revealed that the man had abused her...

“For decades, I didn’t even think of it as r*pe,” but rather “something I caused, something I felt obligated to do because this man expected it from me.”

And what makes things worse was the fact that her mother knew about it...

These were the words that he uttered to her after he had finished: “How does it feel to be whored by your mother for five hundred dollars?”

Even though Demi wasn't convinced that her mother knew... it haunted her.

How could she even hand the key to their home to a man they’d only known a little while understanding the risk that he could pose to a young, vulnerable girl? “That’s not what a mother does,” she wrote.

We cannot imagine how difficult this must have been for Demi...

And after reading the book, many fans speculated that this perhaps could be the reason for her high number of unsuccessful marriages.

She has been married 3 times.

All of which have ended in divorce.

But even though the media enjoy to focus on her sour and very public divorce from Ashton Kutcher...

There is one relationship that Demi still enjoys to maintain… and that’s with ex-husband Bruce Willis.

Demi and Bruce married back in 1987.

Even though they separated after only a year and divorced in 2000, the pair share 3 children together – Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah.

People have always admired the pair for their lack of drama over the years...

And unlike many divorced couples, Demi and Bruce have co-parented their kids wonderfully.

Who remembers the time when Bruce gave Ashton Kutcher his seal of approval?

Now that was a little bit weird!

Demi was a guest of honor at Bruce's Comedy Central Roast in 2018...

And she spoke about how proud she is of their divorce and their ability to co-parent happily together – which must have been wonderful for their daughters.

And through Demi's ups and downs...

Bruce has always been there to lend a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on… and we fully stan for that.

Of course, in the current climate, millions are now quarantining themselves in their homes...

And with this lockdown not excluding the rich and famous, Demi is also quarantining… but she isn’t alone.

Alongside quarantining with her 3 daughters and their partners...

Bruce is also staying with them – forming one big, happy family.

The gang looks very happy to be in each other's company...

And we must say, they all look incredible wearing their matching striped pajamas.

It is truly refreshing to see a divorced couple maintaining a strong and healthy friendship...

And from the looks on everyone’s faces, it has formed an incredibly happy family environment.  

However, there has been one thing on everyone's mind...

What does Bruce’s current wife, Emma Hemming, think of this?

It can't be easy having your husband choose to quarantine with an ex.

And she took to Instagram to comment on the family photo.

Her comment read:

“Not many can pull that color off! Lookin good squad.”

She seems to be pretty cool with it...

But as any wife would do, Emma decided to post yet another cryptic message about her husband.

She took part in a viral Instagram challenge...

Alongside her first-ever photograph with Bruce, she added a caption of, “BeeDub and I – December 2007. He’s clearly SO into me!”

The capitalization of "so" can be read as sarcasm...

And could this be Emma’s way of hinting her disapproval of her husband quarantining with his ex-wife?!

Either way, Emma has been handling the situation gracefully...

We know that we most certainly wouldn’t in this situation, anyway! Make sure to keep scrolling to read about what Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis had to say about Demi Moore’s allegations…

Pets are the most wonderful thing...

But in many instances, they most certainly aren’t the most photogenic.

Us pet owners love nothing more than taking endless pictures of our furry friends...

And sometimes, things don’t exactly go to plan behind the camera lens.

Thanks to optical illusions...

Our pets sometimes are left looking completely unrecognizable. Keep scrolling to see a few bizarre examples…

Take this dog, for example...

Or these 2 dogs…?

Here's a couple of very cute dogs...

Even though we aren’t entirely sure exactly where their heads start!

An unfortunate looking feline...

This cat has certainly seen better days.

Now, just look at the perfect timing of this one!

A light afternoon snack?

A dog or a stag?

My Patronus charm just couldn’t decide!

A young boy with a dog's head?

Or just a young boy taking a nap with his best friend?

Here's a cat sneezing...

Don’t worry, it’s not contagious!

This is something you won't be unseeing for a while...

This would be a great idea for some doggy fancy-dress!

This user's sister has become a female Centaur!

But in reality, her huge dog is just stood behind her.

What's going on here?

Does that dog have any legs or…?

These golden retrievers appear to have merged into one...

Best friends forever?

Now, this is just way too adorable...

Nothing like giving a giant dog a big cuddle, right?

Here's a dog casually fishing...

Now, that’s something you don’t see every day!

This one really puzzled us...

Can you see it yet?

Is this a crow?

Or a cat?

Here's a dog running into the ocean...

About to take flight…?

Look at this good boy giving his owner a ride!

But in reality, this is just an incredibly timed photo.

Can you find the sleeping cat?

This might take you a few minutes… or a few hours…

Just a good boy waiting for his bus...

Or is it?

Have you ever seen a more graceful dog...?

Who also does ballet?!

As if by magic...

This dog has somehow changed its colors behind the tree!

Feeling hungry?

There must be some catnip in there…

Now, this one has really confused us.

Can anyone figure it out?

A man and his feathered friend...

This picture was taken at the best moment possible.

This is one of our personal favorites...

Looks like this little pupper got himself stuck in a bubble!

But there is one optical illusion that has really been confusing the hell out of the internet recently...

And it is this bizarre little thing. People were leaving comments of horror, such as, “My first thought was, ‘why is there a meat sack with legs and how is it alive’,” and, “I didn’t even understand what’s going on with the dog.”

It turns out that it is simply just a 3-legged dog cleaning itself.

Simple! Make sure to keep scrolling to check out the optical illusion on Twitter that has people mistaking a car door for a beach…

Rihanna is everyone's queen.

The singer-songwriter, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, first popped up on the scene with “Pon De Replay” in 2005 after a successful audition with Jay-Z. The release of the song propelled her to stardom, capturing the hearts of international audiences.

Who doesn't love Rihanna's music?

The unique fusion of reggae and R&B vibes became the perfect combination for Rihanna’s dance tracks and her first full album, Music of the Sun, was released soon after.

Her career in music only got more successful with the release of one of her most popular albums, Good Girl Gone Bad.

In 2007, Rihanna’s image underwent a drastic change. She ditched her Caribbean vibes for a more rebellious one, chopping off her long hair and sporting a spiky pixie cut instead. It became her signature look during the promotion of the album, which featured big-name stars such as Justin Timberlake.

After her most recent album, Anti (2016), was released, she decided to take a break from her music career.

Anti did extremely well, ranking at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. It featured some of her most popular songs like “Kiss It Better” and who could ever forget “Work,” featuring Drake?  

Her latest venture into the beauty industry led her to a fortune of 3 billion dollars.

I’m going to say it: Fenty Beauty is probably one of the best things to ever happen to the industry. In 2017, Rihanna really changed the game with her products, from her range of foundations all the way down to her iconic gloss bomb.

The tag line says it all.

“Beauty for All”. Because the industry was becoming more and more diverse, the artist wanted to make sure that she was also moving with the trend. Her first line of foundations included a whopping forty different shades to suit all skin tones. She even went as far as thinking about the undertones of each one!

There's nothing worse than not being able to find your shade.

Foundation shopping is one of the most difficult tasks for us girls. But Fenty Beauty has gone out of its way to make sure that all individuals can find the right foundation for them. And she did not disappoint. With the recent addition of new shades, the company is absolutely killing the make-up game.

No wonder it's now worth an estimated 3 billion dollars!

When Fenty Beauty first launched, it racked up an amazing one hundred million dollars in its first week! Most of the products sold out immediately and the buzz around the company hasn’t died since. Rihanna also announced on her Instagram that there is even more to come. I can’t help but get excited!

In 2018, Rihanna's career moved into the world of acting.

Of course, we’ve all watched Ocean’s 8, right? The film about a group of bad-ass women who all work together to carry out a heist? You know the one I’m talking about. And if you don’t, first of all, where have you been? And second of all, don’t worry, I’ve included the official trailer in this article so you can check it out.

Rihanna played a hacker called Nine Ball.

Nine Ball, yes, that is her name in the movie, is an expert in all things tech. She hacks into the Met’s system in order to cover up all traces of the heist. She is a crucial part of the operation, and, according to the whole of the internet, she did an amazing job. I definitely agree with that!

After all of this, you would expect Rihanna to be rich, but exactly how rich is she?

According to Forbes, all of her efforts add up to an outstanding $600 million fortune, making her the richest female musician in the world right now.

And there were some pretty solid contenders in the running for the crown.

Rihanna beat the likes of Madonna ($570 million) and even the OG Queen B, Beyoncé ($400 million).

Could Rihanna become a billionaire in the next 5 years?

Well, at the rate she’s going, there’s nothing that can stop her. The launch of her high-end clothing line in partnership with LVMH means she has yet another way of earning a profit. The release of this line also meant that she made history as the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH while also being the first woman of color at the top of an LVMH establishment.

But other than her astonishing career, she is loved for a more simple reason.

She just loves to keep it real.

Remember when a reporter asked her this question on the red carpet?

During the launch of her first-ever male perfume Rogue, a reporter asked her what she’s looking for in a man… And it clearly didn’t sit too well with the artist.

She proceeded to tell her: "I'm not looking for a man. How about we start there?"

You go RiRi!

And don't even get me started on the whole "fat" fiasco.

A fan photographed Rihanna at an angle deemed “unflattering”, and people started sending her abuse about letting herself go and becoming “overweight.”

But in true Rihanna fashion, she had the perfect response to those haters.

She commented on the post saying: “Somebody called me too fat?” with 3 laughing-crying emojis. Even she found the comment to be ridiculous, as did the fans who had her back on the issue.

Long story short, Rihanna is the queen of keeping it real.

And she has never let her new-found wealth go to her head.

So, in times of crisis...

She has always been one of the first to step in and give a helping hand.

And the medical pandemic has been no different.

The star has already donated $5 million towards relief efforts, but she’s stepped up her game even more.

The star has teamed up with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to help victims of domestic abuse amid the pandemic.

The singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation and Dorsey announced they are donating $4.2 million to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to help domestic abuse victims in the city.

The money will be able to cover housing, meals, and counseling for ninety victims per week for 10 weeks.

What an incredible gesture.

The Harry Potter tales are simply magical.

Literally… Because they’re all about magic.

The wizarding world of Harry Potter was first born in Edinburgh, Scotland.

While sitting in a small coffee shop, the British author, J.K. Rowling brought to life something rather spectacular.

She created a whole new world...

And everyone wanted to be a part of it.

And quite understandably so.

With dragons, moving photographs, giant snakes, pumpkin juice, and the flying-broomstick sport of Quidditch, millions of people all over the world have been keen to get involved with the Harry Potter way of life.

The world has become Harry Potter obsessed.

And we all believed that we were going to receive a letter from Hogwarts in the mail when we were eleven-years-old… No? Just me?

Spanning across 7 novels...

And 8 movie adaptations, Harry Potter has become a global phenomenon.

So, obviously...

When the final movie was released in 2011, Harry Potter fans far and wide were itching for more.

Sure, we've been treated to the odd reunion pic...

Emma Watson posted this snap with her fellow Hogwarts co-stars, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Bonnie Wright (Ginnie Weasley), and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) along with the caption “Merry Christmas from us.”

We also got the news that the biggest Harry Potter store in the world is set to open this year in New York City.

It’ll be the largest store specifically dedicated to all things wizarding on the globe!

And it truly sounds amazing.

Sarah Roots, who is the Senior Vice President of Worldwide Tours and Retail, Warner Bros, said in the press release: “This will be the largest dedicated Harry Potter store in the world and will become a must-visit fan destination where Harry Potter enthusiasts can engage with interactive experiences and numerous photo opportunities as they step into the magic.”

She continued:

“We are very excited to be opening in New York. It’s the ideal city in which to launch with so many dedicated Wizarding World fans, a cutting-edge retail environment and a community that embraces innovative experiences.”

It will be in the heart of NYC.

The store will host the ‘the largest collection of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts products in the world under one roof with everything from personalized robes and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to a brand-new range of house wands with a design exclusive to the New York location’. And it’s going to be set right in the very heart of the Big Apple, located next to the iconic Flatiron building on Broadway.

But the latest Potter-related news is possibly the best yet...

Ever wondered what it would be like to study at Hogwarts? Well, now you can…

A website has launched where you can enroll in online classes at the magical school.

The best part? It’s totally free.

Run solely by a team of Potterheads, the site, titled "Hogwarts is Here," allows you to enroll in realistic online courses.

Classes include the infamous Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions – along with a whole host of others about the history of the magic, O.W.L.S exams, and magical transportation.

You can even complete real assignments graded by the team’s Hogwarts professors.

It doesn’t end there either… you can even earn house points while you study!

When you sign up, you get to choose your character or you can use your own name.

You can then join or even make a dorm based on your house where you can socialize with your own private group of classmates.

There are even options for those who don't want to be a student...

You can be a House ghost, auror or a magical creature expert, to name a few.

It's truly a dream world for Potter fanatics.

And a sure-fire way to bust that self-isolation boredom.

So, what are you waiting for?

You can head over to Hogwarts is Here to get started on your Hogwarts adventure. And if you want more Harry Potter related news, keep scrolling to find out why Emma Watson refers to herself as “self-partnered,” instead of “single.”

It all started with one simple Tweet.

Laura Norkin pointed out that this is the first time many of us are seeing their partners in “full work mode.” And she shared her horrifying discovery: her husband says “let’s circle back.” What does that even mean?

Other people chimed in with their experiences.

No, not one more question, the meeting is done. Sometimes it’s tough to see the darkest parts of your spouse.

It's even tougher when they follow you on Twitter.

Oooh, busted. She probably has one more question for him, and it’s “are you sleeping on the couch or the floor tonight?”

It's not always that the partner has a bad work persona.

Sometimes it’s just so wildly different from who they are at home. Do they keep a secret doppelganger in the closet?

And it's not just the words people use that change.

Some people speak with an entirely different voice! It’s like customer service voice for the office.

Now we're all wondering about the people we love to hate in the office.

How are their spouses handling these revelations? Will they survive being alone together?

Not all work personas are bad.

As one commenter pointed out “just to clarify” is a great way to point out how absolutely idiotic someone is being.

But there are some lines that can't be crossed.

I swear to god if anyone says “out of pocket” I’m leaving this house and taking my chances out there in the wasteland.

But at least there are people like this guy who give us hope.

The true Male Ally who stands up for his female colleagues when they get interrupted. What a dream.

It just hurts to find out that he's not the person you thought he was.

Let’s table it? How could you do this to me? I never would have married a “let’s table it!”

It's not even just corporate jargon.

Some work spouses are just…weird? Apparently this one turns into an old-timey upperclass guy.

Some people have been hiding skills from their spouses.

Like this husband who has secretly been small-talking all along. What a betrayal!

A few people were self-aware enough to out themselves.

Have you ever said something and as it comes out of your mouth you just cringe? This is that.

Which is probably how we end up with this guy...

If I heard someone say “I’m giving you a few minutes back in your day” I’d probably assume they were an idiot too.

A good work persona can add some spice back into the marriage.

The key to managing your frustration in the workplace is knowing how to translate what you want to say into business speak.

Professionalism can be unsettling though.

It’s like a spooky mask that your partner wears until they can’t be fired for saying “f***.”

Some spouses aren't afraid to call out their significant other.

It’s entirely possible your SO doesn’t have a bad work persona: they may just have entirely boring work. And that’s ok.

Can you imagine being married to this guy?

I’d probably just die of shame if this were me. Or maybe do an honor killing to save my hubby from his shame.

Ok this one is even creepier than every other possibility.

No work persona? You’re just…comfortable and yourself at work? What even?

Oooh now this one is juicy.

I love just listening to my partner be a jerk. Mmm.

Isn't it wild how people have completely different skills at work?

I wonder if my husband can put his dishes in the dishwasher at work?

There are some other horrifying realizations in this thread.

Does my spouse use their people management skills on me? Imagine having this realization if you were married to a therapist.

Some folks have flaws that are unique to their work life.

It turns out it’s much easier to be on time to things you actually want to do. Who knew?

Some people just go too far.

If my husband ever tries to have synergy with someone I’m assuming he’s been taken over by some kind of pod person.

Are there people who truly don't know that all phones display your name now?

I know who you are. If I didn’t, I would not have answered the phone.

I will not be reaching out to anyone.

I’ll talk to them. Like a normal human being who uses their words.

Since we're all stuck inside for who knows how long...

You’re going to have to make this entertaining if you want your relationship to survive.

Here's an update for this guy:

It’s 2020 and calling everyone “chief” does have a gentle scent of racism to it.

You can hear the light indignation in this one.

It IS important for things to be brand-aligned! I swear it is!

If you want to play the full game...

Use this Bingo card to see how many squares your spouse can hit. It’s like a fun “kill me now” game. Losing your mind? Keep reading for some tips of staying sane while working from home…

There's a new Netflix show in town...

And it is perhaps the most binge-able yet.

Netflix's docuseries, Tiger King gives us a majestic insight into the captivity of big cats here in America.

The 7-part series retells the story of a war between a very flamboyant tiger owner named Joe Exotic and his enemy, a Florida-based animal activist named Carole Baskin.

But it isn't just about the tigers and lions...

It is mostly about the scandalous lives of these people in America’s big cat community… and we cannot get enough.

There was a lot of drama over the years...

And Joe Exotic seemed to really have it in for Carole Baskin, with footage showing him repeatedly wishing death upon her and describing how he would like to kill her. Yikes.

The show takes things to a whole new level...

And it has already been branded as “bonkers” by viewers but that certainly doesn’t mean it isn’t binge-worthy.

Who knew there was such a large cult of exotic animal hoarders in the US?

And who knew there was so much rivalry and hate?

But people seem to be forgetting that this is based on real-life...

And when Joe’s life gradually began to spiral out of control, he landed himself into some deep trouble.

Joe is an openly gay man...

And after he married both John Finlay and Travis Maldonado in a 3-way ceremony, both of his husbands gradually deteriorated with drug use and mental health problems. Travis tragically took his own life after he made claims that he wasn’t at all gay, and Joe had simply hoodwinked him by fueling his addictions.

And after this marriage tragically fell apart...

Joe himself fell into a downward spiral and his obsession with Carole and her husband grew even bigger.

And last year, things took a turn for the worst.

Joe was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison for attempting to have Carole murdered.

He hired a hitman to take Carole out whilst she was biking down a deserted bike path...

But the FBI became involved and they thankfully managed to put a stop to this dangerous plan.

Many viewers believe that Joe belongs in prison after his alarming behavior...

And of course, the internet is now a Tiger King minefield.

The memes have been flooding in...

And even though this is poking fun at real-life events, we cannot get enough during our COVID-19 lockdown. You can read the full list of all the best Tiger King memes at the end…

And we must say...

Tiger King couldn’t have possibly come at a better time.

And it seems there's still more left in the canon...

There have been endless rumors about a supposed extra episode of the show.

Luckily for us...

The rumors are true! Netflix confirmed the news of the hotly-awaited extra episode today.

The new episode is titled The Tiger King and I.

According to the streaming service, it will feature interviews with John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.

The episode will be hosted by Joel McHale.

And is being dubbed an “after show” to the hit series.

Fans are excited by the news, to say the least.

Our prayers truly have been answered.

Watch the teaser below:

The episode will drop on April 12. But if you can’t wait until then, scroll on. We’ve got all the best of the internet’s memes – and they’re truly hilarious.

In our hour of need...

We rely on the incredible work of the emergency services and healthcare professionals.

And when it comes to medical pandemics?

It’s these people who are on the front line trying to protect us.

And more often than not...

They don’t even have sufficient protective gear, or at least, not enough of it to go around – i.e. proper masks.

We can get so wrapped up in ourselves, that we forget how much we rely on these people...

And of course, the fact that they are exposed to sick people day in day out – working hours that many of us couldn’t even begin to imagine.

They themselves put their own health at stake.

Not to mention the long hours and mental health repercussions that come along with this.

And of course, this is no different when it comes to the current outbreak.

As the situation gets more serious, we are leaning on the vital work of healthcare professionals more and more.

In fact, things have gotten so bad that retired healthcare professionals are being asked to return.

Yep, really. Over the pond in the U.K. tens of thousands of retired medics are being asked to return to the UK’s National Health Service in order to “boost frontline services,” as per the BBC.

Healthcare services are strained as it is.

And we have to remember that they are people too.

But of course, there is still so much good in the world.

For example, some kindhearted people have been donating protective masks to healthcare workers.

People have also been coming up with other ways to show their gratitude.

Small gestures like this go a long way.

But this week, in an unlikely move...

A celebrity is joining the frontline.

Wizards of Waverly Place alum Jennifer Stone has announced that she has officially become a registered nurse.

After finishing nursing school in December, the twenty-seven-year-old actress has officially traded in her career in acting for a job in the medical field.

Stone previously played Harper Finkle on Wizards of Waverly Place.

And, after leaving the smash-hit Disney Channel series in 2012, she appeared in several independent and TV movies.

However, just a year on, Stone took a break from acting due to her health.

The decision came after she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

During her acting break, she studied psychology before switching to nursing.

And last year, the star graduated nursing school.

She uploaded a celebratory post to Instagram:

“It’s been a long road of blood (mostly other people’s), sweat, and tears (those were mine) but I can finally call myself a nursing grad!” she wrote.

But of course, that's not the end of the road...

And she still needed to become a registered nurse.

On Tuesday, that day finally came...

“A very good friend of mine (@maiarawalsh ) pointed out to me that today is #worldhealthday . It is also the day I went from a volunteer, then a student nurse, and now an RN resident,” she wrote.

She continued:

“I just hope to live up to all of the amazing healthcare providers on the front lines now as I get ready to join them.”

What an incredible move.

We wish her the best of luck in her new role! In other celebrity news, Lady Gaga was forced to hang up on Jimmy Fallon live on tv this week. Keep scrolling to find out why… This is very awkward.

Millions of people all over the world are currently in lockdown.

In a last-ditch effort to slow down the spread of the deadly virus, countries and major cities all over the world have gone into full lockdown.

Self-isolation has been deemed as the most effective way of combating this virus.

While medical researchers work tirelessly to find a vaccine, regular people have been urged to avoid any form of social interaction and contact as best they can.

The virus is easily spread, so remaining isolated is the safest option for many...

And millions are now quarantining themselves at home for months at a time.

It's an undeniably difficult time for everyone.

Staying indoors for extended periods of time will understandably wreak havoc on anyone’s mental health.

But the hardest thing about self-isolating...

Is being kept away from loved ones.

While some people are able to be self-isolate with members of their family or close friends...

Others haven’t been so lucky.

People have been urged to not spend time with people who don't live in their households...

Meaning that millions are unable to visit their family members and friends during these difficult times, which is proving unbearable for many.

It's an incredibly isolating experience for many people...

Spending weeks and weeks alone is enough to send anyone into a dark place.

And, making things even worse...

The elderly, and those who are considered as “vulnerable”, must self-isolate at all costs, meaning they cannot come into contact with others for their own safety.

People who are already suffering from underlying health conditions or other diseases are at the highest risk...

And if they contract the virus, their chances of losing their lives is doubled.

Most couples have been toughing it out and abiding by these harsh rules...

And have simply been looking forward to being reunited with their partners once again.

But others have been breaking the rules.

We all remember the story of the New Yorker who snuck into a hospital to visit his wife.  Yeah, not the smartest move in the world.

Some people just can't take the lockdown seriously...

And don’t seem to understand that good things will come to those who wait.

And there's one story that is the perfectexample of this philosophy.

After being separated as a result of the medical pandemic, one elderly couple were reunited in the most amazing way.

Beverley Lindell only wanted one thing for her 84th birthday...

And that was to see her husband of sixty-three-years, Jerry.

But, sadly, Jerry had been quarantined at the local Meeker Manor nursing home in Litchfield

The Minnesota couple had been separated in order to lower the risk of either of them contracting the virus, after Jerry had a stint in hospital.

Understandably, this took a huge toll on the pair...

Who were used to doing everything together. It was especially difficult because the separation was the longest they had been apart since meeting at age eighteen and marrying 2 years later, according to KARE.

But, suddenly, Jerry was discharged...

Just in time for Beverly’s birthday. The couple’s daughter helped arrange the surprise, driving her dad to Beverley’s house before presenting her mother with some birthday cupcakes.

And, upon seeing her husband, Beverly instantly burst into tears.

“I can’t hug you!” she told him after shrieking at the surprise. But Jerry reassured her that all was fine, saying in the clip, “Why can’t you? I can hug you!” And, as seen in the only photo taken of the reunion, they fall into a tight embrace.  

The couple are now happily self-isolating together.

What an amazing story in an otherwise dark and turbulent time. For more on uplifting stories, keep scrolling to read about the current recovery rate of people infected with the virus…

As of today, the U.S. has more than 400,000 active cases of the deadly virus.

This also includes 15,878 known deaths – the highest number of deaths in one country.

Our country appears to have become the new epicenter of the pandemic...

And without a doubt, we have become the hardest hit as of last month.  

This news comes just weeks after President Trump said he wants the nation "opened up and just raring to go by Easter."

Trump has repeatedly expressed how eager he is to lift lockdowns within weeks, despite warnings from experts and doctors that if the nation returns to work, cases of the virus could spike once again. Little did he know…

New York seems to be the hotspot for coronavirus cases here in the States.

So much so, that last week, those who have been in New York, specifically, the New York metro area, are being asked to quarantine for fourteen days.

New York state alone has accounted for 159,937 cases...

And 7,067 deaths – most of which have occurred in New York City.

According to a New York doctor, the number of patients on ventilators "more than doubled" in the last 2 weeks.

Dr. Craig Smith, chair of the department of surgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York City, explained, “We have not exhausted our existing supply of ventilators but if we keep doubling every three days, we might.”

These numbers only continue to rise...

And one of these people was forty-two-year-old Joe Lewinger, who tragically lost his life to the virus on March 28th.

Joe worked as a principal at The Mary Louis Academy in Queens...

And he didn’t suffer from any pre-existing medical conditions until he contracted the virus last month.

Joe leaves behind his wife, Maura, and their 3 children.

This is truly a tragic loss.

Maura, who is overcome with grief, has spoken out about her husband.

Maura told CNN that she spent nearly 24/7 with Joe on FaceTime while he was a patient in the hospital, and made attempts to calm him down and try “to not let him feel alone.”

Joe was always a good listener...

“He always had a listening ear, no matter what you were talking about, Joe was always listening. He always felt like you were the most important person in the room,” she explained. “He always took care of me, got me my coffee and helped me in every way.”

When the doctor called Maura to tell her things had taken a turn for the worst...

She was able to speak to him on FaceTime, where she “begged him not to leave us and told him we all needed him.” This is truly heartbreaking to read.

Their final FaceTime was emotional.

“I thanked him for being the most amazing husband, for making me feel cherished and loved every single day,” she said, adding that she queued up a special tune after the doctor told her Joe no longer had a pulse – their wedding song.

It was the last thing for Joe to hear...

“I played our wedding song for him. And then that was it,” she said. “So I was with him when he passed.”

Since Joe's death, Maura and her children have set up a GoFundMe Page...

It has so far raised $90,110. “Joe was funny, smart, compassionate and selfless… always putting others before himself,” the page said. “A loving husband, father, friend and school assistant principal. He worked hard every single day to do this part to make this world a better place. He touched the lives of everyone he met and was always willing to offer help, support, guidance, and advice.”

The reality of this pandemic has truly hit home for Maura and her grieving family...

“People are just not being careful. People are being so invincible-feeling and they think it can’t happen to them,” she said. “You cannot, cannot, be with people that are not in your house. As sad and lonely and everything that is, you must, must stay with only the people in your house.”

Our deepest condolences go out to Maura and her family during this terrible time...

Rest in Peace, Joe.

As you will all be well aware by now, the world is currently under siege by a devastating and deadly virus.

Since December 2019, global headlines have been adorned by continuously terrifying news about the spread of the notorious virus.

And, at first glance, the statistics are terrifying.

So far, over a million people have been infected with the virus, and a further 90,087 have sadly passed away as a result.

It's been a truly dire couple of months.

In a bid to combat the spread of the virus, various world leaders have imposed lockdowns upon their countries.

Millions are now quarantined to their homes...

With strict social-distancing rules preventing them from having any physical contact with friends and loved ones.

It's an undeniably difficult time...

And the only thing getting many people through these dark times is the idea that, by remaining self-isolated, they are helping to slowly rid the world of the devastating pandemic.

And now, they may just be getting the news they've been hoping for.

News has come in today that is a truly remarkable milestone in the ongoing fight against this virus.

Because, after months and months of bad news...

I think it’s about time we had a little bit of good news, don’t you?

Well, here we go...Over 300,000 people have recovered from the virus.

According to Worldometers, approximately 342,273 people have made full recoveries, which is around twenty-three-percent.

This is incredible.

And, even more incredibly, the true figure is likely to be much higher because some countries are only testing coronavirus patients who require hospital treatment.

It is a huge step in the right direction.

Because, the more recoveries we have, the quicker we can return to normal life.

And, since the news broke, many heartwarming recovery stories have been emerging...

That show patients and medical workers alike celebrating their own medical victories. Keep scrolling to see some of the best ones…

One recovery patient was discharged to a round of applause...

Despite missing his own dad’s funeral, he still found the power to fight the devastating virus.

Here is the incredible moment medical workers at Wuhan's last coronavirus hospital finally removed their masks.

What an amazing feeling.

Firefighters surprised their colleague who had recently recovered from the virus.

A firefighter had the best surprise when he was finally able to be discharged from the hospital – His full squad were stood outside waiting.

Footage from Egypt shows how the celebrations have been happening all over the world.

Egyptian medics were filmed surprising and embracing a Swedish patient who had just been given the all-clear.

A ninety-three-year-old patient defied all odds by beating the virus.

He was seen slowly leaving the hospital, and shaking the hands of each medical worker who had fought hard to save his life.

This new mom was diagnosed with the virus shortly after giving birth...

And, thankfully, she has now been given the all-clear, and can now return home to her child.

This patient was given the best send off.

Staff at a hospital in Georgia gathered to applaud one of their young patients, who had recently recovered from the virus.

These Baltimore medics even choreographed a dance routine with their patient...

Now this is a happy dance.

And, last but not least...

Here’s a man who had spent months in Intensive Care, experiencing his first taste of freedom. However, millions still remain in quarantine, and some are having a little more fun with it than others. Keep scrolling to read about the elderly woman who begged outsiders for “more wine”…

This is the incredible story of Aiden Mann's transitioning journey.

Aiden is a transgender man, and he has shared this amazing video that shows the effects of being on testosterone for 2 years. But firstly, let’s rewind a little…

What exactly is "gender dysphoria?"

Gender dysphoria involves a conflict between a person’s sex and the gender with which he or she identifies with. People with gender dysphoria experience high levels of discomfort with their own bodies, and they often report feeling as if it isn’t their own.

It is more commonly known as being "transgender."

People who are transgender more than often realize that they are from a very young age – children are able to experience gender dysphoria and this is when the majority of trans people realize this conflict.

The LGBTQ+ community is bigger than ever today.

There are countless organizations around the world that work hard together purely to support people, especially children, of the transgender community.

But despite this amazing support...

The transitioning process will always be tough.

It is both physically and emotionally straining...

And even though the finishing results are always worth it, the human body is put through a lot of changes and stress.

One person who is more than aware of this is Aiden Mann.

Aiden is a twenty-five-year-old transgender man who lives in Tennessee, and he has been transitioning for quite a few years now.

Aiden recently made a TikTok video to outline the effects of transitioning...

And mostly, the effects on trans men when they begin taking the hormone testosterone.

The video stretched over a 2 year period...

And Aiden filmed himself once a month during this time period which emphasizes how quickly the hormones kick in.

1 day...

This is what Aiden looked like 2 years ago when he was just 1 day into taking the hormone. As you can see, he is rocking very smooth skin and he has a high-pitched voice.

2 months...

Aiden doesn’t look very different at this point, but his voice seems to have dropped by a pitch or 2.

3 months...

Aiden’s voice is now noticeably deeper.

4 months...

Aiden’s face seems to be filling out and his voice continues to drop in pitch.

5 months...

His voice continues to drop.

And jumping to 8 months...

Aiden is almost unrecognizable donning some thick facial hair and a deep voice.

At 10 months...

Aiden’s face is truly filling out and his jawline is much more structured and defined.

Aiden reaches 1 year of testosterone...

And even without the facial hair, Aiden looks older and more defined.

A year and a half...

Aiden’s voice is now very deep and all of his facial features are now defined and glowing.

Aiden now looks happier than ever.

He is completely unrecognizable from nearly 2 years ago, and this truly goes to show the incredible effects of just one hormone.

Living in a lockdown really isn't as fun as it sounds.

Of course, the thought of staying indoors, wearing pajamas, and binge-watching Netflix is heavenly for many, but it is far from this reality.

With millions around the world now living in lockdown and practicing self-isolation...

Staying inside and not doing anything is now a day-to-day reality.

Dogs, we now feel your pain...

Being cooped up indoors for weeks on end is enough to drive anyone mad!

It's safe to say that people are getting bored.

And many are running out of ideas to keep themselves occupied during these slow times.

But one couple has come up with a fantastic way to keep busy and occupied.

Filippo Lorenzin and his girlfriend, Marianna, are an Italian couple currently living in London and they both have one big thing in common – and that is art.

The couple, who are both thirty, are huge art enthusiasts...

And Filippo works for the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington – which specializes in art and design.

Of course, the museum is now closed until further notice...

And Filippo and Marianna have found themselves spending a lot of time together… not doing much at all.

The couple own 2 gerbils named Pandoro and Tiramisù...

And they recently decided to occupy themselves by creating a miniature art gallery for the gerbils to enjoy.

Filippo knew exactly what he wanted...

“We tend to spend a lot of time enjoying not just the works but also the quality of the display props — gallery assistants’ stools, wall labels, QR codes to engage with the visitors, etc,” he told BuzzFeed News. “When we planned this small gallery, we enjoyed very much to make teeny-tiny versions of these.”

They started with some basic gallery accessories...

Such as miniature benches.

And tiny labels for the art...

Including miniature QR codes.

But when it came down to the art up for display...

They really put some hard work in. “Initially we wanted to remake less famous paintings, but then we thought it would have been fun to play with how famous and recognizable some artworks are,” Filippo explained.

The detail is astonishing.

It must have taken Filippo and Marianna hours to complete these masterpieces.

After 4 hours of hard work...

The gerbils’ new enclosure was ready.

The gallery was a true work of art...

And the gerbils seemed curious about their new surroundings… at first.

It turns out that gerbils aren't the most polite of gallery guests...

And they completely disregarded the “don’t chew” sign… even though they look so adorable wandering around in their new space!

They seemed more interested in the furniture than the art...

And it turns out that chairs are very chewable!

Filippo has been sharing his creation online...

And it has truly made many people’s days who have been stuck in self-isolation. “It is very pleasant. What started as a pastime for a lazy Sunday spent locked in our flat became one of the most surreal experiences we ever had,” Filippo said.

This goes to show that if gerbils can have a good time in a museum... then so can we!

“We hope this will put a smile to some and make them remember a good time they spent in a museum,” he went on to say. “Remember to support your museums!”

Have a proper tour of the miniature gallery here...

For a long time, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were love's young dream.

The pair had a longstanding on-again, off-again relationship – and many believed they would end up together in the end.

But sadly, things weren't to be.

And it seemed as though Bieber couldn’t give Gomez the love she deserved amidst his struggles with drug abuse and the struggles of fame.

Justin has since addressed his poor behavior.

And while not making excuses, he’s owned up to his past and expressed regret for his treatment of Gomez in his youth.

The pair split for good in March of 2018.

And very quickly, Justin jumped into another tumultuous, whirlwind romance – this time with model and daughter of Stephen Baldwin, Hailey.

The pair secretly married in September of 2018.

Notice anything about that date? Well, just 5 months before, Justin was still embroiled in his old Selena drama. In anyone’s book, he moved on pretty quick.

And, as you'd probably expect...

Selena was nowhere to be seen amongst the guests. It’s awkward enough to consider having an ex as a wedding guest – let alone one who had been dating the groom up until months before the ceremony.

Gomez kept a composed silence on the topic.

But when she dropped her brand new single, let’s just say fans began reading into the lyrics.

It seems to fans the message of the song is clear.

Gomez wrote on her Vevo, “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.”

Here's the full song.

With lyrics like “You turned me down, and now it’s showing / In two months you replaced us / Like it was easy / Made me think I deserved it / In the thick of healing, yeah,” it seems hard to deny Gomez is referencing the new Biebers.

"I needed to lose you to find me."

“I needed to hate you to love me, I needed to lose you to love me.”

And following on from this, Selena unveiled a very controversial new tattoo.

She’s no stranger to an inking – but this one might be here most out-there yet.

Because people noticed something ...

And the Justin and Selena conspiracy theorists are out in full force.

She posted about the tatt on her Insta.

And, as ever, fans cannot stop talking about Justin!

Many pointed this out.

There’s another famous neck tattoo enthusiast out there – Bieber himself!

And that's not all.

Selena’s tatt reads, “Rare,” which is the name of her album. The album that’s basically about Justin Bieber.

Here's the tattoo that's got the whole internet talking.

What do you think? A message to Bieber? Or fans reading too much into things?  

Well, now fans have even more to talk about.

The release of her new song has delved into the frustrations that come with dating.

Everyone has been eagerly waiting for her song to drop.

And now that it has, people have been reading into the lyrics…

Gomez first talked about the song "Boyfriend" back in January.

She teased the then-unreleased song on Jimmy Fallon, saying: “There’s a few other songs that I couldn’t help but want to exist [that didn’t make the album Rare] so I can’t really tell when, but one of my favorite tracks is called ‘Boyfriend’ so I can’t wait for people to hear that one,”

Her song co-writers Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter spoke about the song's origin...

Michaels said he would text her to get ideas for lyrics. He said: “I’ll text her to say, ‘What kind of mood are you in?’ One time she responded, ‘I’m feeling strong and happy,’ and then she said at the end of the text: ‘I really just want a boyfriend.’ I thought we should do a song about it. She got to the studio, and it all started flowing together.”

Tranter hinted that the lyrics of the song dance between a fine line of "want and need."

He said: “Yes, she wants a boyfriend, but it’s not a need. She’s okay on her own, and we all should be too.”

It definitely shows a strength to the lyrics and hints at Selena's personal experiences.

She wrote on Instagram earlier in the week: “There’s a difference between a want and a need. Some nights I just want more than me.”

She's spreading a message of positivity to all her fans.

She took to Instagram on Monday, saying: “It’s a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy.”

Although the release of her new song is big news, she's made it clear she has other priorities right now.

She said: “We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities.” It’s clear what those priorities are, as the star is donating 1 dollar of every order to the virus relief fund.

The British Royal Family are one of most famous families in the world.

Yes, even more famous than our beloved Kardashians.  

But, out of the many members of the British family...

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the firm favorites of the younger, more modern monarchy.

They have long been royal favorites.

Following their lavish and highly documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate were thrown into the media spotlight, and we still can’t get enough of them.

They met while studying at university.

William, who is the son of Prince Charles and second in line for the throne, met Kate at the University of St Andrew’s in Scotland in 2001.

Though their relationship was on and off for years...

They clearly couldn’t stay away from each other, and their engagement was announced in 2010, 9 years after they first met.

And, ever since, we have followed them as their own little family grew.

In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain. Kate emerged from St. Mary’s hospital in London in a blue polka dot dress, which many saw as a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who wore a similar spotty attire herself some thirty-one years earlier.

Princess Charlotte followed shortly after.

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in May 2015, just under 2 years after her older brother.

The princess has actually made royal history.

Princess Charlotte became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne, despite having a younger brother. Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, the birth of a son meant that he would leap over any older daughters in the line of succession.

Traditionally, Prince Louis would have overtaken Charlotte in the line to the throne.

But, now that Princess Charlotte hasn’t been ruled out by gender, Prince Louis remains fifth-in-line to the throne, while Charlotte is fourth-in-line behind her older brother, Prince George.

So, as you can see...

William and Kate really are paving the path to a more modern monarchy.

The couple are notoriously progressive during public events...

And are always happy to mingle and have casual chats and conversations with members of the public.

William is a natural with the crowds...

Something that he has clearly inherited off his mom, the much-loved Princess Diana.

So, it comes as no real surprise to hear that the couple are still making a tremendous amount of effort with their royal duties.

Not ones to let a little medical pandemic stop them, William and Kate have been cracking on with their duties from home.

Like the rest of the world, the Cambridges are being forced to self-isolate.

And, especially after William’s dad, Prince Charles, was diagnosed with the virus, they have been taking extra precautions at keeping themselves and their children safe.

Last week, the couple shared snaps of themselves working from their homemade offices...

Enabling royalists to finally catch a glimpse into the home of the Cambridges.

They posted the photos along with this caption:

“Self-isolation and social distancing can pose huge challenges to our mental health — in recent weeks The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in regular contact with organizations and patronages to understand the issues they are facing during this difficult time.”

Already, their home looks just as elegant as any of us would have imagined.

Only the royals could have a work-at-home set up like this.

And then, they gave us all a second look into their home.

Using the popular video call service, Zoom, Wills and Kate surprised the children at a school in the U.K. Explaining their virtual visit, they wrote: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called teachers and school staff at Casterton Primary Academy to thank them for their hard work and dedication – and to wish the children a very Happy Easter.”

The couple could be seen waving enthusiastically to the staff and children...

With a much more normal home setting in the background – we’re talking white wooden doors, a single photo frame hung up on, and plain, cream walls.

And, of course, only the Cambridges could look this good during lockdown.

This is Katy Perry: Singer, songwriter, and superstar.

She came on the scene in 2008 with the explosive (and controversial) hit, I Kissed A Girl. 

She's one of the most successful singers of our time.

Her 2015 Super Bowl half time show is thought to be the most-watched musical event ever.

Katy has had an unbelievable number of hit singles.

Even those totally out of touch with pop music could probably sing along to a few of her killer choruses.

Orlando Bloom is also kind of a big deal...

The English actor is one of the most instantly recognizable faces of fantasy, thanks to his role as Legolas in the Lord of the Rings franchise.

Orlando has been famous for a really long time...

And it was his role as Will Turner in 2003’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is what really made him a household name.

Having said that, his career appears to have gone on to the back burner.

Orlando hasn’t been in a movie since 2017 and he hasn’t been seen on our screens for quite some time.

Although that could simply be a case of shifting priorities.

It seems that Orlando was simply focusing his attentions elsewhere – like on his romantic life, for instance.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are now one of Hollywood's more glamorous couples...

But it took them a while to get to where they are now.

It wasn't until May of 2016 that Katy confirmed the two were officially dating.

She shared this snap of the pair lying down on some steps at the Cannes Film Festival. But, before this, their relationship was kept very hush-hush.

Fans suspected the pair's budding romance, however...

Including this collage of Orlando’s 2017 birthday party, for which Katy brought a special birthday cake.

The couple have had some amazingly cute moments together.

They are definitely couple goals!

And, after a couple of relationship hiccups, they officially confirmed that they were officially together in April 2018.

That same month, Katy shared this amazing (yet slightly bizarre) picture of the couple meeting the Pope.

And last Valentine's Day, Orlando shared this cryptic message.

He didn’t tag anyone in particular, but fans quickly suspected they knew exactly what it meant.

And Katy confirmed everyone's suspicions...

She shared this snap of the corner of the pair’s faces, alongside multiple heart-shaped balloons and a truly stunning pink engagement ring… on Valentine’s Day in 2019. Orlando shared the same picture, with the simple captions, “Lifetimes.”

People were thrilled to hear the news...

And one die-hard fan pointed out that exactly one year ago, Katy had caught the bouquet at her own brother’s wedding.

The couple are yet to tie the knot...

But, as of last month, they have something much more exciting to look forward to.

The couple are expecting their first child together!

And, in typical Katy Perry fashion, she revealed the exciting news in a rather unconventional way…

Through her new music video.

I know, it doesn’t get any more A-list than that, does it?

Katy's new song, "Never Worn White" debuted last month...

And the song, which will be a part of her fifth upcoming album, hints massively that the singer will be walking down the aisle very soon. The lyrics sing: “Cause I’ve never worn white. But I wanna get it right. Yeah, I really wanna try with you. No, I’ve never worn white. But I’m standin’ here tonight. Cause I really wanna say ‘I do'”

The music video is very typical Katy Perry...

And she can be seen donning a rather quirky and unique floral dress at one point.

But, for the majority of the video...

Katy is seen in a stunning white gown and looking rather angelic.

But, as the video draws to a close...

The singer can be seen clasping her hands around her stomach, which hadn’t seemed any bigger throughout the full sequence.

And then, there we have it.

She suddenly stands to a side and reveals her small bump, which she cradles delicately.

And, shortly after the debut, Katy shared a clip of the video on her Instagram, with the cryptic caption:

“Let’s just say it’s gonna be a jam-packed summer…”

She then addressed her pregnancy in an Instagram Live stream...

“I’m excited,” she said, “We’re excited and happy and it’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep.”

But everyone's asking the same thing...

How did she hide her pregnancy for so long?

Katy has never been one to wear frumpy, over-sized clothes...

So how didn’t we notice her bump?

Well, she revealed her tactic...

And it’s a pretty simple one! Referring to the paparazzi shots taken in the last couple of weeks, she wrote: “omg so glad I don’t have to suck it in anymore.”

And she also relied on help from her fashion accessories...

Because apparently carrying around a big purse can help cover a pregnancy bump… Who’d have thought it!

And as for whether it's a boy or a girl?

Well, the couple have confirmed it in a typically out-there way – through a pink-icing-smeared selfie, of course!  

We are utterly thrilled for the couple's happy news...

And we’re sure that they are starting to prepare for the arrival of their little girl.

The couple have more than likely thought about a few name ideas...

But Katy has confirmed she is set on one certain name for her daughter.

It turns out that Katy wishes to name her daughter after her grandmother...

A source told The Naughty but Nice Podcast with Rob Shuter that Katy wants to name her “Pearl, Hudson or Ann”.

Her grandmother sadly died last week...

“It was Katy’s grandmother that made Katy the woman and fighter that she is today,” the insider added, “Katy believes that it is no coincidence that as her granny’s soul leaves the earth, another soul arrives.”

Katy was very close to her grandma...

So this was an extremely difficult loss for Katy and her family.

We wish Katy our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
