Ricky Martin Reveals His #Jetlag Superhero Identities: VIDEO


Life as an openly gay pop-singer is more than just hard work and tanning. It also involves jet lag and, if you're Ricky Martin, posting Instagram videos of yourself in superhero masks while watching cartoons.

We already knew that he was a hero to animals; maybe he's a hero to metropolis as well. Or maybe he should drink less coffee. Of course, this isn't the first time the singer has played with Instagram.

Madonna Shows Off Hairy Armpit on Instagram: 'Long Hair...Don't Care'


Madonna posted an armpit on Instagram and a message to remind us that she doesn't give an F.

E! also reminds us of this 2011 interview:

"Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn't fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite," she told Harper's Bazaar in December 2011. "I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits."

"The boys in my school would make fun of me," Madonna said of being "tortured" in school. "'Hairy monster.' You know, things like that." It wasn't until her late teenage years, when she began hanging out at gay clubs, that the pop star found her identity. "Straight men did not find me attractive. I think they were scared of me because I was different. I've always asked, 'Why? Why do I have to do that? Why do I have to look this way? Why do I have to dress this way? Why do I have to behave this way?'"

Of course, some of Madonna's Instagram followers are behaving the same way.

Ohio University Student Charged In Snapchat Sex Extortion Case


An Ohio University student, Dorian Graham, has been charged in a case involving Snapchat and Instagram as a means for sexual extortion. Graham, according to a report from WOWK-TV, pretended to be a female in order to encourage a male student to send naked photos via Snapchat; afterward Graham posted the photos on Instagram for others to see. Graham then extorted the other male student to engage in sexual activity at the school's Athens, OH campus by refusing to take the photos off of Instagram unless he complied with Graham's demands.
