96 Second News: There’s A Terrible New Beyonce Wax Figure; The REAL Reason Ed Sheeran Quit Twitter

Lauren Kelly

**Madame Tussauds in NYC unveiled a new Beyonce statue, and people lost their minds over how BAD it looks.

In a photo of the wax figure that went viral, her face doesn’t even look like Beyoncé. People have been comparing it to Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Shakira, or even a “poor man’s Mariah Carey.”

Madame Tussauds issued a statement saying the image going around was distorted by, quote, “lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography.”

They also released a photo that supposedly depicts the statue more accurately. But frankly, it doesn’t look any better. In fact, it probably looks MORE like Britney or Shakira.


**The REAL reason Ed Sheeran quit Twitter was NOT over Game of Thrones

It’s clearly f***in’ awesome. Timing was just a coincidence, but believe what you want”

**At some point in time, all of us want to quit Facebook…but none of us do. And there’s a new reason why.

A new study found that we’re all hopelessly addicted to Facebook for one reason above anything else: It lets us silently JUDGE our friends. And we love doing that so much that we can’t look away.

The researchers even found we’re willing to put up with all of the offensiveness and nonsense people are posting, just for the sake of that one moment where we get to judge someone and maybe feel superior to them.

“There’s one with all five of us, and then there is one with every combination for things like when we had JC’s surprise birthday there was the four of us without JC. When we had Joey’s birthday, it was four of us without Joey.
