Ikea Monkey

1. Would you wear it? This escaped monkey (named Darwin) surprised shoppers when he turned up at an IKEA store in Toronto, Canada this week. We assume he was attempting to get his paws on some of those awesome Expedit bookshelves. And while a shopping monkey is exciting in and of itself, it was Darwin’s choice of outfit that caught our eye.

Check out his super-chic coat, our Fashion Editor Jasmine Garnsworthy calls it “a ready-to-wear petite-style anorak that’s bang on trend, perfect for the Canadian winter.”

You may be wondering how Darwin managed to get to IKEA in the first place. Apparently, he was brought to the store by his owner and then left in the car. Darwin soon figured out how to escape, and made his way to the store’s customer pick-up area.

3. Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe rock out in a public karaoke battle (sadly it wasn’t to ‘Total Eclipse of the HEart’) and instantly get ten times cooler. The pair, who star in Les Miserables together, belted “The Confrontation’ (a song from the movie) in a pub in New York on Saturday night. And, praise be to the iPhone, the spontaneous shindig was caught on video:

5. We’re calling it, move over Lindsay Lohan, you’ve tried and failed too many times – THIS has got to be the best mugshot of all time. 46-year-old actor Stephen Baldwin was arrested after failing to file tax returns in 2008, 2009 and 2010. According to TMZ, he owes the state of New York more than $350,000. Baldwin’s police mugshot is now going viral fast and you can see why, he’s done a GREAT blue steel look. Derek Zoolander, anyone?

7. Remember Little Miss Sunshine a.k.a. Abigail Breslin? The child star is now 16 and very much grown up. She’s currently filming a new movie, Final Girl, and has insisted on doing all her own stunts (don’t try this at home, kids).

Apparently, during a scene which sees Abigail punching her way to safety through a pack of teenage boys, Abigail (accidentally) punched a stunt man so hard in the face that he had to receive medical attention. Hardcore.

Little Miss Sunshine – all grown up
