Last week we saw a few surprisingly realistic photos of a Taylor Lautner wax statue on display at the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Berlin. Today we get to see new photos of another surprisingly realistic statue, this time of actress Emma Watson. It’s been pretty clear for some time now that the artisans at Madame Tussaud’s have really stepped up their game. Gone are the hokey wax statues that looked nothing like the subjects they were meant to portray. Click below to see how eerily lifelike the wax version of Emma Watson looks on display in London.

Full Body Wax
Earlier this month we learned that Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum is just about ready to reveal a set of wax statues made in the likeness of the boyband One Direction. Today we learn that the Madame Tussaud’s in Berlin, Germany has revealed this week their new wax statue of Twilight actor Taylor Lautner. You Lautner fans should know that Taylor was pretty much made famous because of his chiseled ab muscles … therefore, chiseled abs are featured prominently on this new wax statue. Take a look below.

But Where's the Sexy?
Tomorrow night Glee will pay homage to Paula Abdul‘s 1989 music video Cold Hearted which is, in turn, a tribute to the famed Bob Fosse film All That Jazz. Those of you who remember Paula‘s video may recall how racy it was at the time for MTV (if memory serves, the video was relegated to airing after dark so as no to “offend” sensitive eyes in the daytime) but was nowhere as racy as the scene is is based on in All That Jazz. This version of Cold Hearted, done Glee style, isn’t racy at all. In fact, it’s kinda boring … even tho actress Naya Rivera is a phenomenal performer. Meh. I’ve long since given up on Glee … but I got mad love for Paula Abdul and her song Cold Hearted so I present the video above for your entertainment. If you so desire, you can click below and watch the original Cold Hearted music video by Paula Abdul and Take Off with Us performance from All That Jazz. More »
"I give you 'Downton Abbey' doing One Direction"
So … from time to time a parody/tribute/lip dub video comes along that truly stands out from the crowd and successfully grabs my attention so fully that I simply must share the goods with all y’all. Previously, we’ve seen lip dub videos of President Barack Obama performing various songs and those clips are pretty entertaining. Today, tho, I present to you a lip dub video of the cast of Downton Abbey performing the hit song That’s What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. Now, whether or not you like the song, I think you’ll find that you will love this video. It’s really impressive how well the lyrics have been strung together with footage from all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey … and if you listen, you’ll hear clever changes to the lyrics that make the video even more awesome. Watch the video above and love … I’ve already watched it 5 times … and I plan to watch it a few more times in the next hour or so.
Getting It Right This Time
Back in November, Lifetime TV aired a biopic film on the love affair of the late Elizabeth Taylor and her 56th husband Richard Burton which infamously starred Lindsay Lohan in the titular role of Taylor. As you may recall, Liz & Dick was hailed as a tragedy of the highest order. Later this year, BBC will release a biopic film of their own about Elizabeth and Richard, one that will star actress Helena Bonham Carter as Liz … because the world NEEDS a proper biopic tribute to the legendary Ms. Taylor.

As the one year anniversary of the death of Whitney Houston grows near, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum is unveiling a new set of wax statues created in honor and in memory of the late popstar. The Madame Tussaud’s museums in Washington DC, Hollywood, Las Vegas and NYC are all getting a different wax likeness of Whitney and as you can see in the promo photo below, each statue looks incredibly lifelike. These new statues pay homage to Super Bowl ’91 Whitney, I Wanna Dance With Somebody Whitney, The Bodyguard Whitney and I Look To You Whitney … each, stunning in its own right. Check out the freshly immortalized Whitney below. More »
ESPN The Magazine rounded up a bunch of sports stars for a photoshoot where each athlete recreates an iconic album cover. Ryan Lochte, swimmer, was chosen to recreate the album cover for Nirvana‘s 1991 album Nevermind. As you can see below in a side-by-side comparison, Lochte manages to look like the Nevermind baby floating in water … but it’s the interview excerpts that really show that Lochte possibly has the same IQ of the baby in question. The guy is pretty … but dumb as rocks, y’all. Click below to see Ryan Lochte as the Nevermind baby and read what the rocket scientist has to say about the shoot. More »
"Might I have some tea?"
LMAOOO!! Sesame Street decided to pay homage to their fellow PBS series Downton Abbey with a little tribute to the show called Upside Downton Abbey. In the clip, the Sesame Street Muppet versions of the Violet Crawley the Dowager Countess of Grantham and Mister Carson teach the kiddies the difference between upside down and rightside up. As a fan of Downton Abbey, I have to say, this clip is brilliant and very, very cute. Check it out, I think you’ll enjoy :D
As Shannon would say, That Ish Cray!
So … have you ever wished there was a place where you could meet up with friends and drink endless amounts of coffee from oversized mugs in a setting that looks like it was ripped from the mid-1990′s? Then have I got the place for you … in China. An industrious man named Du Xin in Beijing, China has opened up a working replica of Central Perk, the fictional coffee shop where Monica, Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe and Chandler all hung out on a weekly basis on Friends. Unlike the recently torn down set of the show that used to be on display at the Warner Bros. Studios in California, this Central Perk is a working coffee house. Um, anyone want to join me on a visit to Beijing to grab a cup of joe? More »
