Channing Tatum praises Jessie J’s ‘infinite and untouchable beauty’

Channing Tatum posted the above photo to his Instagram last week of he and his on-again girlfriend, Jessie J, wearing inflatable unicorn halos. The photo is cute and had the following caption:

Gonna watch this unicorn sang tonight. Then we gonna get it in! Horns out!

Channing is caught up in post-breakup, rekindled love, so I understand his desire to gush online. But if you clicked on the IG post, you might have noticed that there are no comments. There’s a reason for that, and it’s a bummer. Although Channing was just having a little fun with word play, someone decided to jump on to his post, into his comments, and knock Jessie down. What was worse is the way in which they did it: they compared her to Channing’s ex, Jenna Dewan, which both woman have spoken out against. Well, now it was Channing’s turn to speak out against the comparisons, which he did, before turning his comments off.

Channing took to Instagram with a new photo of the duo. “Gonna watch this unicorn sang tonight. Then we gonna get it in! Horns out!” Channing cheekily captioned the snapshot of Jessie kissing his cheek.

The moment was ruined, however, by someone who commented, “Jenna looks better with you,” referencing Channing’s ex, Jenna Dewan. It didn’t take long for the actor to respond.

“Hey Alex I don’t usually address s–t like this. But you seem as good of a terrible happy people hating thoughtless person as any of them. Why don’t you seriously think about what you’re doing? It’s hurtful and I ain’t about it [sic],” Tatum wrote.

He continued, “If you can’t not be a horrible hateful person on my page and support the infinite and untouchable beauty and woman that Jess is… please kindly get TF out of here. No one wants you here. Especially me.”

It didn’t stop there, though. Channing wrote, “And ain’t nobody more stunning and beautiful to look at but even more as a human than Jess. And yeah that includes my ex.”

But before you start accusing Channing of shading Jenna, he clarified, “Jenna is beautiful and amazing in her own right. But no and I mean no one is more beautiful than anyone else. Beauty isn’t measurable. It’s in the eye of the beholder. So while all you infinitely beautiful people pour over these words and try and find s–t to start s–t with. I’m gonna be enjoying my MF night with my gorgeous lady and cuddle up in her beautiful heart.”

The fact that someone would make the comment, “Jenna looks better with you,” in a public forum – excuse me, Channing’s own post – baffles me. What did they hope to accomplish? That Channing would agree, and he and Jenna would race into each other’s arms, something made considerably harder by her belly that is currently very pregnant with her fiancé’s baby? Of course not. I know there are a lot of arguments to not respond to trolls, but I am not-so-secretly glad Channing did respond because I like the points he made. It’s very sweet that he called Jessie an, “infinite and untouchable beauty,” much more so because he was referring to her character as much as anything. But I love his comment, “Beauty isn’t measurable,” in defending how Jessie and Jenna should not be compared in any way because it would detract from the individual things that makes them both amazing. It’s a lovely defense.

And to further show they would not be scared off by the hating hordes, Channing and Jessie made their relationship red carpet official that night at the 2020 MusiCares Person of the Year Gala. I didn’t realize this was their red carpet debut but that’s what E! said. They followed it up the next evening at the Clive Davis Pre-2020 Grammys Gala (those photos are below). Grammy night, the couple went out once again to the Republic Records Grammy after party, where they reportedly, “appeared carefree and not worried about showing affection.” It sounds like Channing and Jessie are doing well after taking a break. Sometimes space gives couples perspective. Or maybe they are just back in lust, who knows. Whether their relationship lasts or not, I genuinely like both people so I’m happy they’re having fun right now. Hopefully others will agree and let them live it out rather than giving their opinions about who should be with whom.

    I’ve nothing to say about either woman, but DAYM is channing looking hideous lately. There’s not a chance in any multiverse that I would be tapping that.

    • Lady Baden-Baden says:

      Is this a joke? Or did you read this post, including the ‘beauty isn’t measurable’ part, and THIS is your genuine take away?

    • Keekee says:

      He is one of those extremely good looking guys in their 20s-30s than boom. He looks bloated and so pink… Heading down the Mickey Rourke,Val Kilmer route.

    • AmyB says:

      “Hideous?” LMAO – not too sure about that, and that is odd that is your comment on this post about his shutdown regarding people commenting on his ex wife and current girlfriend’s looks!


  2. Christine says:

    Maybe he is trying to make up for all the times he cheated on her. And Jenna.

  3. Keekee says:

    Unless I didn’t understand him properly his grammar is tricky to read… Did he say that Jess is better to look at ‘and yeah that includes my ex’. I think he got called out about that than changed his message about beauty.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Yeah, how is he going to say beauty is immeasurable and also ” But my gf is way prettier than my ex wife” ? What a tool. And is he a Deplorable? Infinite and unmatched beauty sounds like something the Dotard would say. Jenna is better off without this dbag and good luck to poor Jessie.

  4. Tanguerita says:

    Why the urge to be talking non-stop about your (very young, still rather unstable) relationship on social media? It doesn’t seem very bright to me.

    • jules says:

      Was just gonna say, people look dumber and dumber when they post personal shit online. Because people are gonna comment, and it may not be gushing about how amazing of a celebrity you are. It’s the same cycle over and over.

  5. Abby says:

    I wondered if y’all were going to cover this. They seem super happy at the moment and I’m glad. Jenna seems happy but he seemed to be floundering post-divorce. I don’t know that this is a forever thing but I’ve never seen them so “Look at us! In a relationship!” Before. I wish them well.

    Jenna/Channing fans are so mean commenting on his posts. They comment like that ON HIS POSTS all the time. I agree with you. What’s the point? Is he going to read a comment and think yes, you’re right. I’m off to go get back with Jenna? It’s gross. And I’m someone that was their biggest cheerleader when they were together. Marriages don’t always last, and it’s sad, but that’s so rude and hurtful to comment like that on his own posts! I don’t blame him for turning off the comments.

  6. naomipaige99 says:

    I always thought he played for the other team, which there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Guess I was wrong. I just want him to be happy. We all deserve to be happy!

  7. Originaltessa says:

    That was a word salad… A really heartfelt and passionate word salad. But a word salad, indeed.

  8. MB says:

    Damn she looks unbelievable in that silver dress

  9. roseplot says:

    Right, she has a really nice shape!

  10. Appalachian says:

    That’s not a good looking guy…..big lips, ears that stick out, squinty eyes…

    Ladies I’m just not seeing it 😐

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’ve never seen it, either one of the ladies I worked with had him as her wallpaper-er on her mobile. You know the shot – bare chest, arms up, fly half open… I asked if it was her husband. She chortled and said, “I wish! No, it’s Channing Tatum!” I asked who he was, as I’d never heard of him. She told me, and said, “Isn’t he gorgeous?!” I asked why she thought so, as I wasn’t feeling the gorgeousness. She said, “I mean, look at that V!!”
      “What is the V?” I asked. She made the motion with both hands from her hips into a c to her pubic area. Then she and her friends guffawed.

      He has a type, and that’s it from me.

  11. Texas says:

    I don’t believe for a moment that if Channing Tatum came up to you that wouldn’t “hit that”. Good Lord. He is plenty good looking. You might not be interested for other reasons, but he is a handsome man.

    • Erinn says:

      I don’t know, honestly. I’m not into super buff dudes, and I find his face a little goofy. Like – I KNOW he’s attractive, and I KNOW why other people find him attractive, but he’s not that attractive to me, I guess. 🤷

    • ANNIE says:

      He is so physically unattractive. Personally I think his face is very average & Im not into a guy’s muscles/hot body ‘making up’ for that. To me a guy’s face is more special than a hot body, which with enough work, most guy’s could get. To me it’s just like Adam Levine – get a hard body all you want, but it’s not gonna make your face more attractive.

      Sidenote: Channing was SO FUNNY in the 21 Jump Street reboot movies. I was **shocked** how funny & hard I laughed at that movie (him + Jonah Hill). The first was the best, the second wasn’t awful but not as good as the first. I was so pleasantly surprised they made it good & Channing is Really good at comedy! He should do more funny roles.

  12. Jennifer says:

    I think his response was tacky as hell. “And yeah that includes my ex [and mother of his child]” was completely uncalled for and disrespectful. Plus the over the top gushing and proclamation of love and beauty on social media….Channing definitely pings my radar as an insufferable ass. Jessie seems nice enough and very beautiful; it must be very difficult to be compared to Jenna all the time.

  13. MariaS says:

    Their relationship is so performative. All of their loved up photos and posts don’t change the fact that the relationship is dead in the water because he has a wandering penis.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Do you have actual evidence of this??

      • MariaS says:

        Friendly reminder: this is a gossip site, not a courtroom. That’s my impression of him from interviews and his over the top social media declarations. He’s overcompensating – something people routinely do to cover the truth.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @MariaS Gossip sites shouldn’t equal flat out lies or misinformation. At least that is the impression I get of CB in the years Ive been reading and commenting on this site. It’s the only gossip site I read because of this. And it’s a big accusation to accuse someone of being a serial cheater. So no – this isnt a court of law and I am in no way claiming it is. But I do think we should be responsible about what we say about people. Hence why I asked if you had any evidence of this. Say for instance, photos you saw online, etc. Meaning more than just an “impression”.

    • Rose says:

      Let me guess you got this from Blind Gossip. *eyerolls*

  14. Normades says:

    These two are so annoying. This relationship screams midlife crisis to me (Charming Potato, not JJ). Agree with other posters saying he is not aging well. Looks super botoxy to me in those pictures.

    I don’t think they ever broke up, just toned it down while he was working out custody issues. But it’s so over the top and it’s probably from his own insecurities as well. His wife has a great new guy, looks amazing and is having a baby, so he’s gotta show off his young hot gf. And yea, that was a total word salad!

  15. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I love Jessie J and I like Channing and I like them as a couple. I follow both of them on IG and I actually watched that comment thread unfold in real time and it was vile. Im glad he turned the comments off.
    I honestly think people have such a disconnect with what they say on social media. They forget that these are ACTUAL human beings. And a lot of them do it for attention. They say something vile hoping the celeb will respond. In this case I think it was a bit of both as play. Either way I wish him and Jessie the best. They are a cute couple.

    • Abby says:

      Agree VV. I was watching it happen in real time and I felt bad for them. People are jerks on the internet. I’m glad he turned off comments and enjoyed his night.

      Yeah his grammar is atrocious (nothing new for him) and not cool to respond to talking about Jenna by also talking about Jenna, but I can see how he was upset at these constant rude comments.

      She seems like a lot a lot, but also so extremely talented. I think he’s a little lost work wise these days. It makes me sad for him so I’m glad to see him happy. I know that Jenna seems to have found hers.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Jessie is actually pretty chill based on what I see of her on her IG. Channing strikes me as the emotionally high maintenance one in their relationship.

  16. Starkille says:

    Honestly I think Jenna and Jesse look fairly similar, facially. He definitely has a type.

  17. Catting says:

    This was a really sweet comment from him. Can’t just compare women like they’re dolls.

  18. A Guest says:

    Rumors of his cheating on Jenna have been all over the place for years, just as rumors of other people cheating on their significant others as well. That’s why it’s called gossip.

  19. Naddie says:

    Good answer. Even if you insist to compare people, keep it to yourself.
