Kanye West’s ‘New Slaves’ Projection Shut Down By Police In Houston, Texas

Lots Of Disappointed Fans

Yesterday we learned that Kanye West was planning another series of video projections across the globe for his latest single, New Slaves. Even though none of the projections were popping off in Nyack, NY I was still excited to see some new videos from other parts of the world (and PITNBr nicole was hoping for a second experience in Toronto). Unfortunately, all of last night’s projections didn’t go so smoothly, especially in Houston, Texas. Police apparently shut down the video at one location, while others experienced technical difficulties. Click inside to learn more.

Justin Bieber Visits The Anne Frank House, Writes ‘Hopefully She Would Have Been A Belieber’ In The Guestbook

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Canadian pop musician, singer and songwriter Justin Bieber seen smiling, posing with fans while leaving the hotel in Amsterdam

Now what exactly do y’all expect me to say about this? Huh? I mean. Seri-effing-ously. What am I actually supposed to say after I learn that Justin Bieber took time out of his day to visit the Anne Frank House in Netherlands, and then took time out of his day to sign the guestbook, and then took time out of his day to write the most ridonkulous, self-centered message any human being could ever think to write in a guest book at the Anne Frank House. I have no words, y’all. Nothing. I’m gonna go ahead and ask you to click inside anyway, in hopes that the world will start making sense again within the next few seconds.

Tilda Swinton Will Occasionally Sleep In A Glass Box At The Museum Of Modern Art Throughout The Year

The Exhibit Is Called 'The Maybe, In Which'

Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton is always doing things to catch my eye. I most recently saw her in Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom (and she’s already been cast in his next movie), but I have big plans to sit down one day and watch her performance in We Need To Talk About Kevin, which made big waves on the indie scene back in 2011. Anywho, I was excited to learn that she was a part of a performance art piece at the Museum Of Modern Art, strange as that performance may sound. Click inside to learn more about the glass box in which Tilda will be sleeping on various days throughout the year.

London Unveils A New Wax Statue Of Prince William Of Wales

Yikes!

So … a new waxwork statue of Prince William of Wales has gone on display in London, England this week in a new exhibit titled Engagement. As you can see, the artist who created the statue didn’t really capture the essence of Prince Wills in this likeness … at all. At another gallery, a painting of Kate Middleton titled God Save the Future Queen by an artist named Zoobs turned out much better than this wax statue did. It looks like even the art world is getting in on the Royal Wedding bandwagon. More »

There was Hello Kitty-inspired artwork on display, rides and games to play, fun fair food to eat and — of course — fun stuff to buy. After the jump, check out some of the fun photos I snapped last night — including a photo of David and me that I cannot EVEN believe I am sharing with the world (hint: there are costumes involved) … More »

Gwen Stefani Gets Immortalized In Wax

Did Madame Tussaud's do her right? No Doubt.

No Doubt frontwoman, solo artist in her own right, fashion designer and rockstar mom Gwen Stefani is the latest celebrity to be immortalized in wax by Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum … and this week, Gwen was on hand to make an in-person appearance at the Madame Tussaud’s in Las Vegas, NV to officially unveil her waxen doppelgänger:

A smiling Gwen Stefani gets all excited as she meets her new $300,000 waxwork in Las Vegas. So presumably, the singer-turned fashion-designer had overlooked the fact that sculptors have added extra inches to her life-like model. The waxwork of the 40-year-old mother of two has actually been made two percent larger than the star is in real life … the waxwork has been made bigger to allow for shrinkage in the Nevada desert climate, according to celebrity blogger Robin Leach of Las Vegas Weekly. Gwen was on hand [this week] for the unveiling ceremony at Madame Tussaud’s in Las Vegas. She dressed for the occasion in incredibly short colourful dress teamed with black tights and killer heels. Meanwhile her waxwork has been suited in a crop top, showing off a green bra underneath and toned stomach, teamed with trousers and knee high lace up boots. It took nearly six months from Gwen’s first private sitting to create the figure, and more than 250 measurements and photographs were taken at a total cost of $300,000. The three-time Grammy Award-winning No Doubt singer arrived in Las Vegas on Tuesday night ahead of the ceremony. ‘We are very excited to have Gwen Stefani’s figure added to our attraction,’ Madame Tussauds General Manager Rosita Chapman said in a statement. ‘She’s consistently rated high on our request list, so we are very pleased to bring her figure to all her loyal fans.’

Once again, the artists at Madam Tussaud’s have done it again. This wax statue of Gwen looks so lifelike that you’d be hard-pressed to figure out which Gwen is the real Gwen without getting all up close and personal. In fact, I’d be willing to wager that the wax version of Gwen has got sicker abs than the real Gwen does ;) After the jump, check out video footage from this unveiling at Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Las Vegas, NV to see the real Gwen in action with the newly constructed wax GwenMore »

Rihanna Meets Her Waxen Doppelgänger

Even better than the Real Thing?

Yesterday we got our first look at the amazingly lifelike wax statue of popstar Rihanna that will be on display at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Washington DC and today we get to see a personal photo of Rihanna and her waxen doppelgänger which she shared on her official Twitter profile:


I think it’s safe to say that Rihanna approves wholeheartedly of this statue. I, too, approve of this statue … mainly because of how spot on perfect it is. I know some folks don’t think the statue is as perfect as I think it is but check out a side-by-side comparison of Rihanna and her wax statue and judge for yourselves … More »

Rihanna Gets Immortalized In Wax

They even got the forehead right!

Popstar Rihanna is the latest celeb to be immortalized in wax by the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in our nation’s capital city Washington DC. This new wax effigy of Ri Ri will be on display alongside other waxen luminaries like President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Madonna, Rosa Parks, The Jonas Brothers and Denzel Washington. Here is our first look at this tribute to Rihanna:


As with all wax statues … this statue could’ve been a disaster. I think they really got it right this time. The only thing that would make this version of Rihanna look like the real Rihanna would be if her hair were bright pink. If you get the forehead right, you get Rihanna right. Madame Tussaud’s really got the forehead right, don’t you think?

Jane Lynch Gets Immortalized In Wax

Nice to meet Sue

Jane Lynch, one of the stars of the hugely popular Fox TV series Glee, was honored in Hollywood yesterday morning with a wax statue in her likeness unveiled at the Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood, CA. Lynch posed for a few photos next to her waxen doppelgänger and spoke for a bit with the crowd. Here are a few photos and some deets from yesterday’s event:

Jane Lynch has a clone. The Glee star, 50, was joined by her new wife Dr. Lara Embry, a real-life high school Glee club, and more than 100 screaming fans Wednesday morning when her wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussauds on Hollywood Blvd. Following opening remarks by Ian Brennan, the co-creator of the hit Fox show, Lynch walked out beside her statue, modeled after her character Sue Sylvester, and told the crowd, “Holy crap—unbelievable. This is too much. This is too weird. I feel like I’m seeing myself in a coffin or something. Thank you so much!” Lynch tells PEOPLE the whole experience is “strange and eerie,” adding, “it looks just like me.” But the cloning process was not so simple. “It took four hours,” Lynch said. “They took the measurements of my face and my body, and they put dots all over. There was a contraption that measured from here to here, to here, to here, to here for four hours.”

Wow … you know, sometimes the artists at Madam Tussaud’s get these wax statues SO wrong and sometimes they get them SO right … this new wax statue of Jane Lynch is deffo SO right! The resemblance is uncanny … and I agree with Jane‘s sentiment … Holy crap! It is unbelievable. Jane Lynch really is the breakout star of Glee, I love her character Sue Sylvester so much. I might have to haul my cookies down to Hollywood Blvd. to see this amazing wax statue in person. It’s pretty damn sweet, ain’t it?
