Octomom Nadya Suleman Becomes Art


Pop culture artist Daniel Edwards, who previously immortalized Britney Spears giving birth and Hillary Clinton’s bare breasts in statues of their own, has created a new piece of artwork titled String of Babies in honor of the so-called Octomom Nadya Suleman … behold:

It’s the stuff nightmares are made of, not fit for any nursery… But this collectible rubber toy can be yours for the bargain price of your immortal soul. Daniel Edwards, the artist who brought us Suri’s poop, Britney birthing, Paris’ insides and Oprah’s head-with-dogs, has brought his sculptor’s sensibility to Octomom with his latest creation, String of Babies’, holds a baby bottle upright. The bright pink “toy” features octopuslike tentacles sprouting from a replica of Nadya Suleman’s head and cradling eight little identical baby heads and a baby bottle. No word on which of the eight doll-reminiscent heads are supposed to be Noah and Isaiah, the two Suleman infants who on Tuesday were the first of the eight to be released from Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Bellflower, Calif. The press release touting the new addition to the creep-out canon deems String of Babies to be in the ironic, in-your-face style of American Gothic—Grant Wood’s much-parodied painting of a pitchfork-wielding farmer and his equally severe-looking wife standing in front of their home. Of course. We’re sure countless cultural histories about String of Babies are forthcoming.

Blah! While the Octomom has become something of a pop cultural phenomenon, I can’t help but think that all of this crazy attention is exactly the sort of thing she relishes. While I don’t necessarily think that she planned on becoming a “celebrity” because of her octuplets (and by that I mean, Nadya Suleman doesn’t strike me as the kind of person to possess intelligent foresight) I absolutely believe that she is prolly loving every minute of all of the attention. Now that she has been immortalized by Daniel Edwards, she joins the ranks of other celebs like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Oprah Winfrey and more as subjects of pop culture who will live forever as art … which, to Suleman, is prolly a very nice perk of giving birth to 8 babies at once.

AND GET THIS … YOU can buy this piece of artwork for a mere $199! What a bargain! Is anyone interested in owning this? Should I buy one?

    Funny how she’s only going to be remembered as that crazy bitch who squeezed out a litter of kids.

  • that is just plain scary!

  • Ann

    How can you not buy one? I think I’ll buy 8, seems fitting.

  • Jadedkitten

    That shit will hunt your nightmares Trent don’t get one. I know there’s no way I could have that in my house the vacant glazed expression, the dead eyes and I just know I’d hear her serial killer whisper every time I looked at it…and I just creeped myself out imagining it.

  • AmyM

    that thing is fantastic! and hilarious! lord knows the Octomom sounds like a bit of a headcase but that toy? is perfect. haha!

  • me


    that is not art
    it needs a flush
    seriously..it is garbage

  • JJ

    I hate hearing about her. I just feel so bad for those poor kids. All of them…not only the premature infants but her 6(?)-year-olds who actually know what’s going on right now. I agree, she probably loves all this attention…

    Trent, if you buy one please please pleeeease post a picture of that awful thing in your house…

  • Christie

    What a monstrosity.

  • ash

    hahah that is so funny. I had to post your photo on a mom group here in Tampa. We talk about the octo-mom here and there.. heheheh

  • Jill

    I bet her Pink Vacant head spins around and spews out more babies!
    Honestly I find it hard to believe her sincerity or intelligence when she seems to drift in and out of Fantasia.
    I hope she gets lots of help.
    Go Doctor!

  • Well it *IS* pink afterall! LMAO!!!

  • Traci

    That is fantastic. I wouldn’t buy one myself, but it’s excellent. Great concept, and well executed. And as far as the cost, I’d say it’s perfectly reasonable. I’ve seen limited edition runs of artwork not nearly as well done as that for WAAAAY more.

  • Kate

    She looks like Angelina Jolie even in this piece. That woman can deny it all she wants but her resported obsession with Angelina is something slightly suspicious in my opinion…

  • Apples v 2

    Er, I think Trent was using sarcasm…

  • Apples v 2

    At least, about buying one.

  • Sara

    OMG… so scary. And I don’t think there will be any left to buy once Nadya finds out about them… I’m sure she will buy every one just so she can stare at them and relive her 15 mins of fame. I mean, at $199 a piece, that’s a bargain! Why buy food or clothes for your children when you can have THAT?

  • amanda

    haha, i think its a pretty rad piece but i would never by one…

    i wonder what its made out of, tho….
