Ariana Grande is one of—if not the—biggest pop stars in the world.

It was only a matter of time before she got a wax copycat.


Madame Tussauds in London has revealed its newest addition to their museum. Their statue of Grande is a little, uh, divisive to say the least.

However, in my opinion, it's a lot closer than some of their other attempts.

However, you can definitely tell it's somewhat off. The nose isn't quite right.

Lips aren't all there. It has all the hallmarks of a wax statue.

This did not sit right with fans of the pop star. Twitter was flooded with messages of people who had to let the world know that this wax statue did not look like their Ari.

Which, in fairness to them, why do we keep letting these wax museums get away with sub-par doppelgangers?




Ariana has been on a rollercoaster of a year. Her album Thank U, Next debuted as an absolute powerhouse, with 11 songs breaking into the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.

She's also been very open with her own struggles with mental health, at one point, quoting actor Jim Carrey. Carrey returned the kindness with his own message of support.

But what does Ari herself think about the statue?

I'm sure many of us would "just wanna talk" too.


Sometimes you get some really bad wax figures. It just happens.

Sometimes you get Ed Sheeran's statue, which lends credence to my theory that Sheeran is, in fact, a wax statue brought to life by a curse.

It's all in the luck of the draw. This hasn't stopped people from trying to figure out why Grande's statue looks the way it does.

The most common explanation was "Emery Bingham."




We really shouldn't have been surprised at the London location's attempt at a wax figure of Ariana Grande. In 2017, the Las Vegas location unveiled their version of the singer and it was received just as poorly.

At the very least we can say it looks like the new figure is an improvement over the older one.

If you want to see it, the new statue is on display at the Madame Tussaud's in London for five weeks. I'm sure you'll be booking your ticket first chance you get.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
