selfie statue sugar land texas—some genius thought it would be a great idea to memorialize their small town with a bronze statue of two chicks taking a selfie
Yeah, it really has come to this.
Some genius—actually three geniuses—thought it would be a brilliant idea to honor their home town with a bronze selfie statue.
The statue sits in the plaza in front of the Sugar Land Town Hall—and depicts two women taking a selfie.
Not surprisingly, residents of the small Texan town seem to be pretty divided over the artistic atrocity—falling into two camps—amused and pissed.
Although, many have jumped at the chance of taking a selfie with the selfie statue—because, OF COURSE!
behold the great selfie statue Sugar Land Texas
According to a City of Sugar Land press release, the selfie masterpiece is one of ten statues donated to the city by local resident, Sandy Levin:
Other statues are located at Sugar Land Memorial Park, Oyster Creek Park and Fire Station 4 in First Colony.
A future installation is planned for Highlands Park.
The first bronze sculpture depicts a guitar player sitting on the ledge of a fountain facing City Walk.
The second represents two girls taking a “selfie” near a bench with City Hall in the background.
Both show activities common in the plaza.
The inclusion of sculpture in the Town Square plaza aligns with the continued vision of the City and the Legacy Foundation’s commitment to establish cultural arts amenities that “provide and/or support activities and facilities that enrich the artistic, cultural, educational, and historical character of Sugar Land.”
Because, nothing enriches culture, history and education like a good old fashioned selfie.
It’s the end of the world as we know it.

The spokesman for the Organized Cyberspace Crimes Unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp spoke on an Iranian news program Sunday night to denounce Kardashian and 'her ilk.'
According to ThinkProgress, Mostafa Alizadeh explained how Kardashian and her ilk 'target young people and women' with the scandalous imagery they share. He suggested that Kardashian is employed by Instagram in some capacity as part of a complex plot to lure Iranian women toward a Western lifestyle and away from the teachings of Islam.
[Note to Kim: Uh oh.]
In his words:
These schemes originate from around the Persian Gulf and England. When you draw the operational graph, you will see that it is a foreign operation. Ms. Kim Kardashian is a popular fashion model so Instagram’s CEO tells her, ‘make this native.’ There is no doubt that financial support is involved as well. We are taking this very seriously.
In a crackdown on un-Islamic dress, Iranian authorities arrested eight individuals involved in Instagram pictures of women without headscarves, as part of the operation which 'targets Iran’s fashion elite for their use of social media.'
Prosecutor Javad Babei made the arrests public on TV, saying the operation was zeroing in on 'threats to morality and the foundation of family'.
According to the BBC, the eight people who were arrested were among 170 identified by investigators as being involved in modeling online. They included 59 photographers and make-up artists, 58 models and 51 fashion salon managers and designers.
Mostafa Alizadeh said, ominously:
Sterilising popular cyberspaces is on our agenda. We carried out this plan in 2013 with Facebook, and now Instagram is the focus.
One of the arrested women, a former model, appeared on TV to renounce her bare-headed photos and lament her 'mistake.' During her interview, she warned other young women to stay out of the industry, saying:
You can be certain that no man would want to marry a model whose fame has come by losing her honor.
How will Kim respond to this serious human rights issue? We know how strongly she feels about sharing her nude body to celebrate her femininity or whatever she keeps celebrating.
Will she stand up for the women of Iran and support their freedom of self-expression? Will she deny her influence? Or will she go into hiding?
Just kidding with that last option!
Kim will go into hiding when Hell freezes, or as they say in the Persian Gulf , "إذا حجت البقرة على قرونها", which means 'when the cow goes on pilgrimage on its horns.'
That Gwen Stefani bare face selfie that was burning up the interweb last week was ALL about the B.S.—no, silly, not bullshit…. Blake Shelton!
And, yeah, it's pretty amazing how different she looks without even a hint of make-up on.
The 46-year-old looks absolutely beautiful—not to mention, twenty or so years younger…
Kinda crazy really, seeing as make-up is often used to cover-up imperfections.
And, it transpires, the notoriously heavy make-up loving Stefani is pretty damn perfect without it.
Not surprisingly, Stefani’s Instagram pic quickly received an avalanche of comments from her 4 million followers.
With fans telling her how pretty she looks without makeup and what a natural beauty she is.
Both of which are true—although, it has to said, girlfriend looks smokin’ hot WITH makeup on too….
So, go figure.
However, it transpires, when she took the photo, Stefani was seeking the attention of one special fan only.
The singer tells People magazine:
I was laying there, I just got in bed and I was like, 'Maybe I'll send a picture to Blake,'
You just start fooling around with it.
I actually had a new camera on my phone and I just took that picture.
I probably took about 10. That one looked cute and I was like, 'I'll just post it
Meanwhile, apparently, Stefani looked “visibly upset” after seeing ex-husband Gavin Rossdale today.
The armchair psychiatrists at the Daily Mail report that she appeared “distraught” and “a bit shaken” as she drove away from their Mulholland Estates meeting.
Hmmmm…. personally, looking at the photos they’re basing this on, Stefani looks more pissed off at being photographed than “visibly upset” and “distraught”.
More like, sick of having been subjected to yet more of that cheating asshole ex's bullshit kinda look.
Check out the photos for yourself and then spin your own totally speculative story line.
