Insta Creep: Ariana Grande ‘Just Wants To Talk’ To Madame Tussauds About Her Horrific Wax Figure…
What all the celebs are up to on social, from A to Z listers.
In our gossip column, we indulge our nosiest desires and delve deep into what the celebs (and ‘celebs’) are doing on social media. Who’s tweeting and deleting? Who’s shady faving? Let’s find out.
Ariana Grande is just as unimpressed with her Madame Tussauds wax figure as everyone else.
Last week, Madame Tussauds London unveiled a wax model of the singer, sporting her signature high pony, oversized sweater and thigh-high boots:
The only thing is, on closer inspection… the features aren’t quite right. The eyes are OK, the nose is… almost there, but the whole thing comes together to create an image of someone that isn’t quite Ariana, but maybe a girl on Instagram who looks like Ariana.

And apparently she agrees. The singer commented under PopCraveNews’ photo of the figure, saying: “I just wanna talk.”
Madame Tussauds, let this be your cue to step in and mould that face around a little bit more. She deserves better than this.
Stacey Solomon has opened up about how she’s feeling after giving birth to her third son.
The TV personality gave birth to her first child with Joe Swash a month early, and admitted that she’s struggling to adjust to life without her bump.
“I don’t feel I appreciated it enough while I was pregnant and now it’s over,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself and Joe with what’s left of her bump after the birth.
Addressing the pressure on women to get back to their ‘pre-baby body’, Stacey said it’s not “important or relevant” to her.
No one knows how they’re going to feel and what we look like after birth is the very least of our worries. The truth is I’m devastated that my belly is shrinking by the day. I wish it could stay around for a little longer. I feel empty and hollow. Not to mention like I’ve been punched in the vagina.
It’s amazing to hear someone be so honest about all the emotions that accompany giving birth, good and bad.
Courteney Cox is in Ireland with boyfriend Johnny McDaid, following his band Snow Patrol as they tour Ireland.
She watched the band play Ward Park in Bangor, Co Down on Saturday night, standing side stage with Bono and his wife Ali Hewson. Good company!
Now she’s up in Lough Eske in Donegal, cracking jokes about “the natural beauty of Ireland” while sporting a filter that makes her look like an alien.
Courteney, you’re gas.
And now it’s time for… #SponConCorner
Who’s flogging what, and why?!

There is so much magic in these mountains. They represent adventure in the grandest form and in a language all their own. The idea of standing at the base of the world's tallest peak with @eddiebauer, a brand that has been outfitting record-setting climbers since the beginning – from the first American ascent in 1963 (Jim Whittaker) to our guide @melissaarnot, the first American Woman to ascend and descend Everest without oxygen, is truly beyond my wildest imagination. Traversing this terrain has its challenges. Breathing at altitude, for instance, is not easy. One of the greatest gifts/lessons that Melissa simultaneously bestowed on us during this trek was the fine art of pressure breathing. It makes all the difference as you climb higher. It’s essentially a big inhale and a sharp, forceful exhale, like you’re blowing out a candle across the room, to open up your lungs, allowing you to use more oxygen, etc… Besides hydration and staying nourished, breathing is THE vital key in the fight against altitude sickness. It’s also a major takeaway that I will be employing back to the real world whether I’m in the midst of a tough workout or a weird day. Mind blown. So as we weaved around the Himalayas from 14,400ft-16,200ft-17,600ft: this particular technique was essential in propelling us forward. Needless to say, this part of the world holds a very special place in @melissaarnot’s heart so her willingness to share it, as well as her time, knowledge and endless trove of stories were so appreciated by all of us lucky enough to walk alongside her this past week. Her belief in our abilities to keep moving and ultimately make it to the base of the Mighty, Mighty Mt. Everest was so powerful. Spoiler alert: we made it!!! It’s impossible to be lucky enough to arrive at the foot of these mammoth peaks and not be attuned to the palpable energy of all of those who came before and lost their lives in these mountains. The wave of emotion: respect, reverence, appreciation….that washed over us as we took in the prayer flags and yellow domed tents of basecamp AND sat on the rocks regarding the chortens that dot the hillside of the Tukla Pass the day before, profoundly
Mandy Moore has done a sponsored post about trekking up Everest, slap bang in the middle of the mountain’s deadliest season in years. Eleven people have died on Everest in recent weeks, with hundreds of climbers basically queuing up to reach the summit.

Mandy was never trying to reach the summit, however, explaining that the trek to base camp is about a sixth of the journey for someone who actually climbs the mountain, which would take eight weeks in total.
According to the New York Times, Nepal has no strict rules about who can climb Everest, and the government is issuing more permits every year, leading to overcrowding. So maybe not a good time for any Everest-related #spon, let’s be honest.
