Rihanna is the latest star to get wax statue

In the summer 2010 trend kicked off by Kim Kardashian and Lady Gaga, pop star Rihanna now also has a waxen doppelganger courtesy of Madame Tussauds.

And if the picture above - currently the photo on the “Rude Boy” singer’s Twitter account – is any indication, Rihanna absolutely loves it.

The 22-year-old’s wax figure recalls RiRi’s blonde cropped 'do of yesteryear, and is clothed in the memorable all-black Balmain ensemble she wore to the designer's runway show during Spring 2010 Paris Fashion Week.

Jeff Gordon shares photos of new baby on website

NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon no doubt got a rush when he took home his latest prize: son Leo Benjamin, who was born Aug. 9. Now, the proud pop is showing off the first photos of his baby boy on his website.

Gordon, 39, released four pics of adorable Leo - three black-and-white shots showing close-ups of the newborn's face, lips and feet, and one color shot of Leo with his big sis Ella, 3.

"We're happy to share some of our most cherished memories with you," the racing star and actress/model wife Ingrid Vandebosch, 40, said in a joint statement. "We hope you enjoy them!"

It was only last February that the couple announced the good news that they were expecting. "We're very excited and can't wait to expand our family to four," Gordon said on his site, noting that their daughter was especially thrilled about the new arrival. "Ella is also very excited and can't stop talking about how much she's looking forward to being a big sister."

'Tourist' director: Depp and Jolie have 'incredible chemistry'

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie hadn't met prior to making their upcoming romantic thriller "The Tourist," but you'd never know it judging by the sizzling chemistry the couple share on screen.

"I was the first person to ever bring them together," said "Tourist" director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who describes the twosome's teaming as "historic" in an interview with MTV.

"They just got along so well from the first moment they met that I knew it was going to be a lot of fun making this film," he added. "I probably have hours worth of bloopers where they were just laughing because they had so much fun inventing stuff on the fly and letting their incredible creativity run free."

Bristol Palin: 'DWTS' will show my work ethic

Bristol Palin won't be showing much flesh when she does the flamenco on "Dancing with the Stars" this season.

"I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that's who I am," Palin, who calls herself "naturally shy," told People magazine.

The 19-year-old single mother, who advocates teen pregnancy prevention, said she decided to do the show because she wanted to be a good role model for her 20-month-old son Tripp. "I see this as something that's fun and that's positive, and I'm going to be able to show my work ethic to people out there."
