Someone Painted A Portrait Of Mark Zuckerberg Out Of Poop

You gotta have (f)ART

A street artist by the name KATSU has painted a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg using poop as his medium of choice. I suppose a lot can be said about a portrait of a person that was created using human excrement but it’s probably better to let the artwork speak for himself. According to KATSU, he had to “wear a respirator and burn organic [incense] during rendering” because, obviously, it is very difficult to paint with feces. I would assume it’s shitty work. See what I did there? Of course you did. Click below to see what this literally shit-stained portrait of Mark Zukcerberg looks like and learn more about the art piece and it’s artist itself. More »

Comedy Central Announces The Roast Of Justin Bieber

“Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him"

After years of begging on his part, Justin Bieber is finally getting his wish … Comedy Central has decided to give the young pop star exactly what he’s wanted for some time now — his own Comedy Central Roast. The fact that The Biebs had to ask for his own roast totally defeats the purpose of what a comedy roast is supposed to be in the first place but the kid ins’t the sharpest tool in the shed and honestly, I don’t think that he cares. Comedy Central issued a press release about the forthcoming Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, which you can read in full below. More »

Watch: In Honor Of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Today, Here Is His ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech

"The greatest demonstration for freedom ..."
"From every mountainside, let freedom ring."

Today, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I feel it is only fitting that we spend part of our day remembering the selfless work for racial equality that Dr. King devoted his entire life to by watching his historic I Have A Dream speech. Each year, on MLK Jr. Day, I like to post video of his I Have A Dream Speech so that we all have access to his powerful and inspiring words. Of course, this speech is readily available and easily accessible any day of the year but it seem right to pay tribute to the memory of Dr. King by watching video of his speech today. If you cannot watch the video above, maybe you can spend some time reading the words of the I Have A Dream speech below. More »

The People Of France Stand Tall, Stand Together As The Manhunt For The ‘Charlie Hebdo’ Gunmen Continues

1 suspect has turned himself in, 2 remain at large

The world was horrified yesterday by the shocking news of the terrorist attack on the offices of the French publication Charlie Hebdo which left 12 people dead. As the day unfolded, lots of information came out of Paris that seemingly told the story of what transpired yesterday when armed gunman stormed the offices of Charlie Hebdo in what looks to be a well-planned terrorist assault. Last night, the information got murky when it was initially reported that the gunman had been apprehended (they weren’t) and one of the suspects was killed (he wasn’t). As the reported settled down a bit, actual facts began to emerge. At this point, two of the suspects (the armed gunman who carried out the attack) are still at large and have been identified as brothers Said and Chérif Kouachi. The third suspect (believed to be the getaway driver) is an 18-year old who turned himself in to police. As the search for the murders was carried out by authorities, the brave and resilient people of France gathered together in public spaces to unify in solidarity against the atrocity that was carried out in Paris. People gathered together all over the world last night to stand with France. The world was Charlie Hebdo last night. More »

Miley Cyrus Pays Homage To Madonna’s ‘Rebel Heart’ Album Cover Photo

Is this a sign of a future collaboration?

Madonna has had a rough few weeks lately in the wake of the massive leaking of over 30 demo songs recorded during sessions for her as-yet unreleased new album Rebel Heart (including the leaking of a diss track that appears to be aimed at attacking Lady Gaga). Today, tho, she appears to be in better spirits as she shares new photos on her official Instagram profile of tribute photos mimicking her album cover photo for Rebel Heart. Madonna‘s BFF Miley Cyrus shared a tribute photo, sparking rumors that the two might collaborate on a song together that might appear on Rebel Heart. Thus far, there has been no record that Madonna and Miley have recorded together for Rebel Heart so if a collab does happen, it may be a completely new idea separate from all the demo songs that have leaked thus far.

Katniss Everdeen Gets Her Own Wax Statue At Madame Tussaud’s In London

The Wax Tribute from District 12

Katniss Everdeen, the fictional protagonist of The Hunger Games book trilogy — brought to life on the big screen by actress Jennifer Lawrence, has been given her own wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London, England. Because the statue is based on J. Law‘s likeness, I suppose one could argue that it is a statue of Jennifer in costume as Katniss but IMHO, I think it’s a statue of Katniss that happens to look like Lawrence. Whatever the case may be, I think you’ll agree with me that this waxen tribute to the character/actress is eerily impressive. The Mockingjay lives in immortal wax.
