Benedict Cumberbatch Has Been Immortalized In Wax By Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London, England unveiled earlier today their newest wax statue exhibit of actor Benedict Cumberbatch and as you can see here, the damn thing looks freakily lifelike.

Have a look, see what you think … tell me this statue doesn’t look perfect.

Paris Hilton Proves That The Tiny Dog Accessory Is A Trend That Never Goes Out Of Celebrity Style

Last month, Paris Hilton bought a $13,000 Pomeranian puppy that she named Prince Hilton (see his official Instagram profile HERE) and ever since, she has been spotted all over town with tiny pooch in tow. As you longtime celebrity watchers (like me) should remember, this tiny dog as an accessory thing was super hot way back in 2004 … and while most Hollywood It Girls have moved on from the trend (because they eventually had children instead), Paris is keeping the trend alive. Click through the gallery to meet Prince Hilton and get to know him a bit better. As you can see, Paris has been dressing him in tiny Hallowe’en costumes lately. Is this a celeb trend that you would like to see continue?

Neil Patrick Harris Was The 4th Choice To Host The 2015 Academy Awards

Last week we learned the brilliant news that actor/showman Neil Patrick Harris signed on to host the 87th annual Academy Awards next year but today we learn that Neil wasn’t the Academy‘s first choice for host. In fact, he was the 4th choice for the gig … behind Ellen DeGeneres (who was the first choice, who was reportedly BEGGED to host again) and a couple of other funny folks. Personally, I think NPH is the ONLY choice to host the Oscars next year but, apparently, the Academy believed otherwise. More »

AAR Acoustic

After a quiet night in last night, I’m ready to go back out into the world today. A few weeks ago, I snagged tickets to see All American Rejects play the first of a series of acoustic concerts at the Hotel Café in Hollywood, CA and tonight’s the night. I’ve been a fan of the power pop stylings of these Oklahoma City boys since they made their debut in the early ’00s and I’m excited to see them play an acoustic show tonight. It shall be a blast.
