The Wackest Waxworks Ever: This Is Barack Obama???
Louis Tussaud’s in Blackpool, England thinks this looks like our President. (Methinks it resembles a very equine Bryant Gumbel.) Is this payback for Obama’s reported snub of Prime Minister Gordon Brown?
Also, here’s a shocker: a member of a boyband isn’t totally straight. Blue singer Duncan James admits he has had “flings with men,” even though he has had numerous high-profile relationships with women. He is emphatic: “But even though I fancy men, I still fancy WOMEN too.” Not that that would matter to the homophobes…
And the Harry Potter kids are richer than God: even freakin’ Malfoy is making mad dough.
Also: Universal will release a “watered-down version” of Bruno for British teenagers, in hopes of allowing “many more of Bruno’s fans in the UK to enjoy the film.” Variety reports, “The toned-down version, which will be released in the UK and Ireland from July 24, will be 1 minute 50 seconds shorter than the original version. Universal is planning on keeping both versions in UK cinemas concurrently.” Hmmm, are they scared by the film’s weak box-office bow here in the States?
