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.
The music video we deserve

If you loved Bey‘s video for 7/11, I have a feeling that you are going to REALLY LOVE this shirtless guys version of the video. Please enjoy.

'If anyone out there has a mother, and she's not perfect, please call her and say you love her anyway'
Get ready to feel the feels. I told myself I wasn’t going to read this, because it’s only 10:30AM, and way too early to start crying. But alas, here I am. Earlier this week Robert Downey Jr. suffered one of the most difficult losses anyone can suffer—and yet, we all pretty much go through it at some point. His mother, Elsie Ann Downey, passed away at age 80, and it sounds like she had a tremendous effect on her son, his life, and many of his decisions. He did something that I know must have taken so much strength to do, and wrote an open letter in tribute to his mom. Click inside for more.
