The BRIT Awards have a fun tradition of inviting British artists like Vivienne Westwood to design a custom statue for the ceremony, which is helpful if you’re One Direction and expect to build a collection of them.

For 2015, the honor went to artist Tracey Emin who is best know for installations including, a series of tents embroidered with names called “Everyone I Have Ever Slept With” and a cluttered bedroom, complete with condoms and stained sheets called “My Bed”.

The popular response to Emin’s pastel design has not been so kind — it turns out, people are not big fans of the arts and crafts movement.

It looks like a lot of things. It looks like something that Taylor Swift, who won her first Brit Award at the event, would already own. It looks like a “shabby chic” Etsy search.

Check out 10 things the people on Twitter are saying could have inspired the design.

When Leonard Nimoy landed his iconic role as Spock on Star Trek in 1966, it came with a lot of opportunities for the actor.

He posed on red carpets, traveled the world meeting Trekkies, hung out with William Shatner and rubbed elbows with real-life astronauts.

Nimoy also wrote a book called I Am Not Spock and another called I Am Spock, while pursuing his interests in music and poetry. He even traveled back to his hometown in 2012 to pick up an honorary doctorate degree from Boston University at the age of 81.

Leonard Nimoy, in line with his futuristic role as Mr. Spock, was active on social media.

The actor used Twitter to share his poetry, recommend art exhibits, reminisce about his time shooting Star Trek and even signed off every tweet with Spock’s credo, “LLAP” or “Live long and prosper.”

Nimoy, who was hospitalized in mid-February, last tweeted on Feb. 23:

His touching final message is the perfect way to remember the iconic actor.

At long last, Limp Bizkit mashed up with the Seinfeld theme song

Fifteen years later, we’re all still wondering what’s the deal with Fred Durst. But maybe Limp BIzkit’s longevity problem stems from choosing rap-rock over rap-jazz.

A new mashup lays the vocals of the group’s 1999 hit “Break Stuff” over the Seinfeld theme song, and it actually kind of works.

It makes sense, though — Durst shares the same misanthropic worldview as Jerry and the gang. You can just see Elaine nodding her head in agreement while Durst howls, “Everybody sucks. You don’t really know why, but you want justify rippin’ someone’s head off. No human contact. And if you interact, your life is on contract.”

Should we ever be blessed by a Limp Bizkit comeback, Durst could probably channel some rage about being denied soup into a hit single.

When Orange is the New Black returns this June, one original cast member will be missing.

The fate of Jason Biggs’ character, Piper’s ex Larry Bloom, was up in the air when we left off and Variety confirms that the actor will not be returning for the the third season.

Larry has been a universally hated character from the start, so the news has been met with nothing short of jubilation.

The consensus seems to be that, short of a gruesome death, Larry’s quiet sendoff is the best possible thing that could happen to the character.

At least Biggs has the satisfaction of being able to say “I told you so.”

Maybe he’ll get lucky and they’ll make a fifth American Pie movie.

Fashion Week is the absolute best to stand outside in 15 degree weather and be seen in your expensive designer clothes, if you’ve got ‘em.

But life isn’t all leather Alexander Wang backpacks and Valentino Rockstuds. That’s why we asked the fashionistas at Lincoln Center to reveal their darkest secret — what the cheapest thing they wore to New York Fashion Week was.

It turns out, almost everyone had a chic find from a chain store — H&M, Zara and Forever21 were all well-represented. We were also pleased to learn that plenty dedicated followers of fashion had the foresight to layer fleece-lined garments under their ensembles. As for trends, fuzzy pink clutches, faux fur and cerulean blue were very hot.

As we say goodbye to another Fashion Week, our advice is to head to your local Forever21 and pick up the first bright blue Muppet coat you can find — Cookie Monster is totally on-trend.

Harlan City Police Department in Kentucky has put out a very official warrant for her arrest on Facebook as a response to the city’s brutal cold front. The ice queen is accused of the heinous crime of being responsible for the city’s 10 degree weather.

The police followed up the warrant with a serious warning to stay off icy roads and stay inside whenever possible.

Elsa, meanwhile, is just laughing it off.
