2. Tired of Barbie’s unrealistic body proportions, artist Nickolay Lamm decided to create a more realistic doll. Utilizing crowd funding tools, Lamm set out to raise $95,000 to begin production on a doll that has a “real woman’s proportions.” The new line is called Lammily and its tagline is: “Average is beautiful.” Take a look!

3. Despite critical acclaim, Oscar winner Matthew McConaugh will not return for a second season of the HBO series True Detective. “No, I won’t be back for season two. Season one was finite,” McConaughey responded when asked about the popular HBO series while attending the Oscars. [HitFix]

4. Are you a fan of Demi Lovato’s fierce new hairstyle? The singer shaved the side of her rainbow-colored hair off and debuted her fresh look via Twitter. What do you think? [Wonderwall]

5. Angelina Jolie’s newest role as the self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil” in Maleficent, the new live-action film based on the Sleeping Beauty villain, scared most, but not all, of her children. Jolie and Brad Pitt’s youngest daughter Vivienne ended up playing a young version of Princess Aurora in the film, but the casting was mostly out of necessity. “The other 3- and 4-year-old [performers] wouldn’t come near me,” Jolie revealed. “It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws. So it had to be Viv.” [Entertainment Weekly]

6. More like robots in plain sight. Here’s your first look at Mark Wahlberg in the new trailer for the upcoming summer blockbuster Transformers: Age of Extinction. The Michael Bay directed film hits theaters June 27th. [News Ledge]
