John Legend vented his frustration as he hit out at his "former favorite rappers" who support Donald Trump ahead of the U.S. election.

The "All of Me" hitmaker appeared during a final rally for Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris in Philadelphia, during which he highlighted "the meanness, the bullying, the selfishness of Donald Trump".

"Some people... mistake it for strength, a kind of twisted masculinity," he says. "Some see his greed and they mistake it for being good at business. Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies,” said Legend, apparently calling out rappers including Kanye West, Ice Cube, 50 Cent and Lil Wayne who declared their support for Trump in recent weeks.

"I think they've even founded a new supergroup, it's called The Sunken Place," John remarked. "But Trump's Platinum Plan for Black folks is nothing but fool's gold. Because you can't bank on a word he says."

Chrissy Teigen asked her husband John Legend to help her document the devastating loss of their stillborn son.

The model and TV personality delivered a stillborn son the couple named Jack in late September, after she suffered heavy uterine bleeding.

Chrissy and John broke the news of the family tragedy to fans online with a series of black-and-white shots of the stars mourning their third child in the hospital.

Now Chrissy is pouring her heart out about the medical cause of her loss in an emotional open letter for Medium.com.

Chrissy reveals she was diagnosed with partial placenta abruption, which caused her heavy bleeding, and the moment doctors confirmed their son would not survive.

"After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming - it was time to say goodbye," she writes. "He just wouldn't survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either."

"I was told it would be time to let go in the morning. I cried a little at first, then went into full blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness.

"Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw," she explained, referring to the images she shared on Instagram.

Chrissy, 34, seen in public for the first time since losing her baby, was criticized for taking photographs of her tragic loss. She explained why she felt it necessary to photograph such personal heartbreak - even though it was clear John was dead set against it.

"It didn't make sense to him at the time," she explains, "but I knew I needed to know of this moment forever..."

Addressing her critics, she declared:

"I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it's something you wouldn't have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren't for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me."

Chrissy was thankful for all the messages of condolence from fans and friends, some of whom have experienced similar tragedies. She assured followers she read every single message.

"Thank you so much to every single person who has had us in their thoughts or gone as far as to send us your love and stories," she adds. "We are so incredibly lucky."

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," she wrote in the caption. "We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough."

Teigen added that while she and husband John Legend, who are also parents to 4-year-old Luna and two-year-old Miles, don't usually choose their children's names until "just before we leave the hospital", they had called their unborn son Jack.

"Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever," she wrote, before sharing a personal message to Jack.

"To our Jack - I'm so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn't give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you," she wrote.

Teigen also shared a B&W photo of a doctor administering an epidural injection in preparation to induce labor. In another touching photo, she and Legend are seen mourning their stillborn son.
 

Teigen was rushed to the hospital after experiencing excessive uterine bleeding on Sunday. She received a double blood transfusion due to heavy blood loss.

Teigen, who was in her second trimester of pregnancy, tweeted that she had a "really scary" experience. She said she passed a "huge clot" and "the scramble to hear the [baby's] heartbeat seemed like hours."

Later, Teigen tweeted the fetus was okay. "Basically he's the strongest, coolest dude in the s-------t house. His house is just falling apart," she said of her unborn baby. "It didn't have a good foundation to begin with, though. He didn't have the strongest chance at the very, very beginning."

Teigen had been on mandatory bedrest for weeks after periodic spotting and bleeding. Doctors usually prescribe the female hormone Progesterone to women with a history of bleeding to prevent a miscarriage.

But Progesterone can be both a blessing and a curse to pregnant women, as the hormone can cause excessive uterine bleeding that leads to a spontaneous abortion.

Thanking her fans for their "positive energy, thoughts and prayers", Teigen wrote:

"We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we've been able to experience. But every day can't be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it."

Teigen later tweeted: "Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real."

John Legend praised Gabrielle Union and her effeminate husband Dwyane Wade as "powerful LGBTQ+ allies."

John, who is rumored to be bisexual, delivered a gushing tribute to the 47-year-old Deliver Us from Eva actress and the 38-year-old basketball star as they were named in Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

The couple were named not for their career achievements, but for "being forces of change," after they accepted Dwyane's transgender child, Zaya, who was born a boy named Zion Wade.

The "All of Me" singer praised them for setting "a powerful example for parents to be good allies to young people who are figuring out who they are."

Dwyane is dad to Zaya, his son with his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches. Earlier this year, the NBA star revealed Zion told them he'd "love for you guys to call me Zaya" after coming out as transgender.

"Freedom exists in so many different forms. But we are so blessed to be in a household where we have free children," Gabrielle said during Tuesday's ABC TV special.

"We have a daughter that is almost two, that the world has seen is bound to nothing but whatever is in her heart and on her soul at the moment. And it's beautiful to watch truly free children."

"We have another daughter who's 13 (Zaya), who has the freedom to be exactly who she is, who she was born to be, to be her most authentic self. She doesn't ask permission to exist. That is wildly inspiring," the star added.

In a brief essay for Time, crooner John heaped praise on the couple, writing: "Every kid is going to be different in some way or another. Every kid is going to have their own individuality and their own interests and their own identity.

Dwyane and Gabrielle started dating in 2008 and they wed in August, 2014. They welcomed their first child, Kaavia, via surrogate in 2018. The sportsman also has sons Zaire, 18, and Xavier, 6, from previous relationships.

Later, the Hollywood socialite took to social media to share a video of herself posing in front of a mirror while showing off her bump.

"Look at this third baby s**t," she said, adding, "What the... oh my God."

John said the couple was "chronicling our family's growth and our journey. We're so happy that this video is the next chapter."

The 34-year-old actress was dragged on social media for weeks after Internet sleuths uncovered old tweets that suggested she may be a pedo.

Chrissy and her husband's names also turned up on flight logs for Jeffrey Epstein's Lolita Express.

John Legend took aim at his former boss, rapper Kanye West for allegedly conspiring with President Donald Trump to divert votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Legend, who is best known for his song "Tonight (Best You Ever Had)", took to Twitter to denounce Kanye and Trump.

Legend retweeted this post to his 13.5 million followers, writing, "Just in case anyone needs some clarity around what's happening here:"

"A little update — The GOP lawyer who helped @kanyewest get on the ballot in Wisconsin is actively working for @realDonaldTrump's campaign. She's the lawyer of record in their lawsuit to try to get a @prioritiesUSA anti-Trump ad pulled..."

He followed up by tweeting: "Anyway.... Anyone reckless and/or misinformed enough to fall for the okey doke probably wasn't voting for Biden (or voting at all)."

His followers reacted by asking Legend to speak to Kanye rather than drag him on social media.

User @dweebs193 tweeted: "I was under the impression that you were friends with Kanye. Why you telling us? Shouldn't you talk to him? Also I think it's pretty racist for them to assume that black ppl are going to vote for Kanye bc he's on the ballot."

Chrissy Teigen reportedly blocked over 1 million "sick psychopaths" on Twitter.com after she was accused of being a child molester.

Twitter sleuths reportedly uncovered "evidence" including a flight log that showed Chrissy and her husband, musician John Legend, were guests on Jeffrey Epstein's "Lolita Express."

The convicted pedophile committed suicide in a jail cell at a Manhattan detention center where he was awaiting trial last year.

Chrissy deleted 60,000 tweets and blocked 1 million trolls from her social media accounts in response to the sick allegations that she had ties to the billionaire sex offender.

She thanked a journalist for helping her deal with the trolls, writing: "I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths."

The former bikini model and TV personality denied she and her husband's names were ever listed on a flight log along with other celebrities and politicians who visited Epstein's private island over the years.

The mom-of-two said the report was fabricated and she exploded when one follower accused her of trying to cover up evidence by deleting thousands of tweets.

"I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot f**king STAND you idiots anymore and I'm worried for my family. Finding me talking about (TV series) toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you're some sort of f**king operative."

She added: "everyone thinking I'm guilty because I'm defensive. You understand you are calling me a pedophile, correct?"

Other celebrities have also deleted their Twitter accounts, including beloved drag queen RuPaul. The host of RuPaul's Drag Race deleted his Instagram posts and deactivated his Twitter account after old posts containing Confederate flags resurfaced.

Chrissy Teigen confessed she and husband John Legend sleep in separate bedrooms because her home is haunted by a ghost. The 34-year-old former swimsuit model tweeted that she suspects her house is haunted by "some kind of ghost or evil spirit."

Chrissy, who married John in 2013 in Italy, took to Twitter on Wednesday to explain the terrifying nightmares that led her to sleep in a different bedroom. She said the nightmares are exhausting and she often awakens at night drenched in sweat.

"I know this sounds insane but I think I have some kind of ghost or evil spirit and I have the worst nightmares," Chrissy told her followers on her Instagram Story. "I will go to bed super early and I will sleep so long and I will wake up soaking wet because I have just the most terrible nightmare. It's always the same nightmare."

While she didn't explain the content of her nightmares, the star added: "I'm tired of it and it's ruining my life, so I'm sleeping in a different room tonight. We'll see if this makes a difference."

The Lip Sync Battle star apologized for her rich white privilege, explaining "I understand it's very privileged to have an extra room, but I do. I need the energy, I need to feel good. I can't live this way anymore. I cannot do this nightmare anymore. It's driving me insane. It's literally making me crazy. I have to stop, it has to stop."

PEOPLE magazine

Singer John Legend is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2019. It shouldn't be a surprise that the liberal magazine chose Legend, who is a very vocal anti-Trump critic.

Actor Idris Elba, People's 2017 Sexiest Man Alive, congratulated Legend by joking with actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (People's 2016 Sexiest Man Alive).

"My G Congratulations brother!!! You deserve it," Elba, 47, wrote. "DO NOT TELL @TheRock He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn't have the heart to tell him when I took it."

The regression of male masculinity is very evident in the men People magazine chose over the years.

Hollywood has waged war on toxic masculinity, so-called traditional masculinity norms that they say are harmful to women and children.

Hollywood is going to great lengths to redefine and ultimately erase masculinity in males as we know it.

Pharrell Williams, who is decidedly feminine, covered GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue last month.

Williams, 46, appeared on the cover wearing a floor length yellow bubble coat that caused quite a commotion on social media.

People magazine and GQ are making it clear that a new bar has been set for manliness in America. Get used to it.
