Saturday Night Social: This Lady Gaga Waxwork Is a Cult Classic In the Making

It’s not nice to poke fun at enterprising mom-and-pop wax museums who are up against multinational corporations like Madame Tussauds™ Attractions, so I tried to avoid this for Saturday Night Social. But between this and the coronation of the horse chestnut as the United Kingdom’s new favorite tree (thread: is it fit to rule????), I kept drifting over to...




Suffice it to say, the internet is not showing much love for this Lady Gaga-based creation, with very sharply defined muscle tone and a gaze that says death. On a more positive note, she has long hair.

The name of the museum is not confirmed, but blogs have identified the source as a museum in Lima, Peru. Further evidence of the museum’s collection can be found here, with equally transcendental abstractions of subjects like Marilyn Monroe and Miley Cyrus. Shakira could be a workable Lindsay Lohan.

All press is good press.

It’s my birthday!! ITS MY BIRTHDAY! My dad keeps asking me what I want for it, but I don’t really want anything. So - what’s the best gift you’ve either got or given?? I got bose wireless headphones last year that I am obsessed with. Best gift I’ve ever given was a really fancy traveling backgammon set to an at the time boyfriend who loved playing backgammon. Your turn!
