Uh ... when you have the same extra-curricular activity as Janelle Evans, you should probably start worrying ...
Khloe Kardashian and the infamous Teen Mom both posted waist-training selfies in the past 24 hours and what's perhaps more disturbing than the fact they're binding their middle sections into a ridiculously-constricting corset, is the fact they're both posting photos of themselves doing it! I mean, if you bind your feet, are you gonna post a pic of it? What's next, selfies of celebs picking their zits? We just don't need to see this!
Ms. Evans apparently wore her trainer to the VMAs the other night, accompanying this pic with the caption, "Waist training every day of the week has been helping and helped my look at the VMAs with @waistedbykeke."
Meanwhile, Khloe wrote on her pic: "Im obsessed with the gym but a little extra help never hurt nobody @waistgangsociety and @premadonna8.' And 'Keep my waist snatched and posture perfect. Once you try it, you will become obsessed!!! Head over to whatsawaist.com the ONLY place to get your waist trainer!!! ❤️❤️❤️"
Uh, somehow I don't think I'm going to be obsessed with this. But then I'm also not obsessed with lip filler or makeup contouring. What do YOU think? Do you waist train?
Do you think waist training is stupid?
Desperate people resort to desperate measures. Its dumb!

In case celebrities weren't self-obsessed enough, Interview magazine is coming out with a "#ME" Issue. Gag.
The biggest celebs in social media have been tasked to submit a self portrait for the mag's September 2015 #ME. The issue features some sexy snaps from Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Zayn Malik, Madonna, Selena Gomez and more.
The magazine has eight alternative covers, some of them racier than the next.
Editor-in-Chief Keith Pollock said about the portraits: "We invited each subject to use this opportunity to create something powerful and personal: the utmost expression of themselves. We definitely encouraged them to push the limits, but we weren't interested in steering them in any way. Our aim was to allow them to create an image that reflects the way the subjects see themselves. And the way they want to be seen."
Umm is it just us, or are most of these "portraits" actually just bikini or topless selfies? Let's not make this Intro to Art Criticism 101. Jennifer Lopez without pants ain't no Cindy Sherman. Let's call a self-important spade a self-important space, peeps.

Parenthood isn't so breezy for Breezy!
Chris Brown is really trying to step up and be a good dad -- which means protecting his daughter Royalty from any bad influences (and we aren't talking about Brown himself).
The rapper is reportedly trying to battle for joint custody of his daughter with Nia Guzman by claiming her live-in boyfriend, whose name is King Ba, should not be around his daughter because he is a wanted man, claims TMZ.
According to the outlet, the singer, who is a felon, will be countering Guzman's attempt to have full custody of the one-year-old.
Reportedly, King Ba, who is listed on Royalty's birth certificate under his given name Brazil Reisling, was has been charged with forging more than $5,000 worth of U.S. Treasury checks and is currently wanted by police.
TMZ is stating that Brown is afraid it's unsafe for his daughter to be around Ba and is planning to demand equal parenting rights when he appears in court in mid September.
Conversly Guzman says she is no longer dating Ba and worries that the rapper will put Royalty in danger or may use drugs in front of the baby.
In addition, the controversial superstar has filed documents to establish Royalty's paternity, which would likely allow him to have joint custody of his daughter. A judge has yet to rule on the paternity case.
We think it's pretty interesting that Brown takes issue with Ba's forging charges when the 26-year-old has beat up his ex girlfriend Rihanna and served time for that felony assault case.
Maybe being a good dad will make Chris Brown be a good man? Stranger things have happened ...
Fresh off the heels of their trip to Australia, Benji Madden wished his lady love Cameron Diaz a happy 43rd birthday on Instagram.
Along with the sweet snap, Benji wrote, "Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Wife❤My best friend and Everything else- there's so much I could write. I'm the luckiest guy alive- I get to spend the rest of my life right here. I love this Woman!!❤️Many more Baby!! ❤️ 🎁🎉🎂"
It may have been a coincidence that the Good Charlotte musician called her "Baby" in the post or perhaps it was a tiny nod to the rumors swirling that the 43-year-old is pregnant!
The duo have been inseparable since they were married secretly back in January. Despite their hush hush romance -- things seem to be going along swimmingly!
Yesterday, the couple arrived at LAX after filming The Voice's grand finale in Australia. The duo jetted out of Sydney on Monday morning and back to Los Angeles. Even though he was on duty working -- it seems as though the musician wanted his lady love by his side -- maybe it's because he knows she's got a bun in the oven!

Someone should have taken her home schooling a bit more seriously!
While showing off her new dagger piercing, Kylie Jenner also highlighted the fact that she doesn't really have a good grasp on the English language.
The 18-year-old, who was wearing nothing but a bra and underwear, posted one Instagram that said, "Cute lil new guy," and another one that read, "No makeup Monday's." Umm -- if Kylie had actually gone to high school it's possible she would have known that it should actually be "Mondays" and not "Monday's."
No apostrophe, girly!
Oh to be 18, beautiful and dumb as a box of rocks ...

They're saying bye to the US of A!
The Beckhams have waved goodbye to Los Angeles and are moving back to London -- we're sure gonna miss them!
The family of six headed out of LAX on Monday night and made quite the adorable scene. The down-to-earth kids dressed down for long flight and even carried their own bags.
Upon arriving in London this morning, the 41-year-old fashion designer posted a familial photo on Instagram of hubby David and children, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10, and four-year-old Harper as they made their way through the London airport.
It's nice that the Brits are back on their home turf -- but we are really going to miss seeing sexy David at SoulCycle!

Melissa Rivers took the reigns on Fashion Police on Monday night. It's the now-controversial show's first show since March -- and it was a hot one!
Rivers took over hosting after her mother, Joan Rivers, unexpectedly died on Sept. 4, 2014.
In the cold open, the 47-year-old said, "Hi, yeah, it's been a little bit of a crazy year around here, and, well, I'm still cleaning up messes. But the good news is, Fashion Police is back."
On the show, which is also hosted by Brad Goreski and Giuliana Rancic, the trio and some fun guests took aim at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards. The episode also featured a new segment called "What Would Joan Say?" which is a tribute to the late host.
Surprisingly, former co-host Kelly Osbourne was on board, sending flowers and tweeting her support,"@MelRivers congratulations on an awesome show tonight!" The 47-year-old wrote back, "@KellyOsbourne I love you!!! The flowers are amazing and you owned the lavender carpet! Xxx #friends #mysister."
We think the purple-haired vixen is trying to play nicey nice so she can get Giuliana off the show and get back in on the fashion dissing!

Who knew pro surfer Kelly Slater was friends with everyone in Hollywood!? And who knew he had a line of goods with Pottery Barn? This is actually blowing our minds!
Over the weekend Slater launched his Outerknown clothing line at architect Harry Gesner’s treehouse-inspired home in Malibu, and stars like Julia Roberts, Cindy Crawford, Jason Statham, Gerard Butler, Anthony Kiedis, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky all showed up to support the athlete.
So, aside from apparel, what about that Pottery Barn line? “We’re actually talking to PBteen about doing a second season,” he told WWD. “I love the sustainablity arm of what they did and the design was really nice.” Aside from surfing killer waves, Slater wants to be known for creating products that fit into the sustainable lifestyle category.
“I’m trying to be as responsible as I can be with what I do and what I put my name to,” Slater added. “If a brand approaches me and I don’t believe in their kind of ethos, I don’t work with them. The money is not an issue.” Er, seeing as some of Slater's tees retail for $80 a pop, we're not so sure about that...
