Kim Kardashian: Seeing double

It’s time to add “wax statue” to the laundry list of reasons why we can’t seem to keep up with the Kardashians.

After tweeting about getting her butt measured and posting cryptic messages on her blog – “Why would I be getting measured… Curiosity? Dress fitting? Can you guess? – Kim joins the likes of Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie and other A-listers who have leant their measurements to Madame Tussauds.

The wax museum unveiled Kim’s wax statue Thursday in NYC.

Fans react to Wonder Woman's costume change

Not even the early success of "Eclipse" could bring out the comments as much as a change in Wonder Woman's iconic costume.

Hundreds of people weighed in yesterday on the Marquee Blog, and elsewhere with their view on Diana Prince's new look.

Those who disliked the costume, at first glance, certainly made their feelings known. "WHAT THE???? You do not take an iconic symbol...and change it. I do NOT like the new digs...You made her 'normal'...and who wants that??," wrote "TheWonderiestWoman."

'Recovery': Second-biggest digital sales week in history

If there was ever a doubt that Eminem had lost relevancy in the world of music, the hip-hop legend’s latest album offered over 741,000 reasons to think otherwise.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, Eminem’s latest record, “Recovery,” moved 741,000 units since being released on June 22. This marks the largest sales week since 2008, when AC/DC stormed the charts with “Black Ice.”

The album is also the sixth straight to debut at No. 1 for Eminem. Only 1999’s, “Slim Shady LP” failed to hit the top spot.

Janet Jackson: Acting 'was my first passion'

HLN’s Richelle Carey sat down with Janet Jackson at the Essence Music Festival to chat about her upcoming role in Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls,” her childhood and her passion for acting.

[Acting is] more of a challenge for me than singing and dancing is and I love that about it,” Jackson said.

“It was my first passion,” she added, which is why Jackson is thrilled to be a part of “For Colored Girls,” Perry’s film adaptation of the 1975 play, “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.”

“It’s a great piece of history,” Jackson said.

But despite acting at 10 years old, and singing professionally by age 14, Jackson said she doesn’t think children should enter into the business before they’re 18.

“A kid should have a life. They should enjoy their childhood,” she said. “You only get one.”

Catch the full interview on HLN Friday at 4 p.m. ET.
