Ti's wife and reality television celebrity Tameka 'Tiny' Harris has recently taken a trip to Africa to change her eye color. Although illegal in America the surgery is approximately five to ten minutes per eye. If your wondering how it is done so we're we.
In an interview with Jezebel magazine Harris' surgeon Dr. Menif Montasser explained the process, "This surgery is done under local or general anesthesia with three incisions, one is 2 millimeters and the other two are 0.8 millimeters in the eye's peripheral [...] the implant is folded in an injector, then it's injected in the eye after filling the eye with viscoelastic."
The procedure only takes about two months to heal and although it might sound like an outrageous surgery it has been known of for over a decade and is very common across seas.
Tameka's daughter Zonnique has recently posted a picture on instagram that has bloggers wondering if she followed in her mothers footsteps...
Actor, director, screenwriter, student and most currently artist, James Franco has released his second exhibit to date, “Fat Squirrel”. Franco’s latest exhibit is being held at the Siegfried Contemporary, an art consultancy and advisory in London, that specializes in modern and contemporary art. There are three series of art work in the exhibit on display at the Siegfried, which Franco explained the creation of in an exclusive with Dazed Magazine. Art advisor and founder of the Siegfried Contemporary, Andreas Siegfried has chosen Franco as the artist of showcase saying, “I have chosen James Franco as I am personally interested in aspects of how he translates his life as a celebrity in to very quirky and thought provoking works of art. What draws me most to his paintings is their powerful presence and an ever present sense of humor.”
The theme of Franco’s exhibit is his public persona verses his personal persona or as Siegfried describes as “his ‘true self’ in conversation with his ‘false self’.”
Francos childlike art embodies his whimsical character, with paintings of obese animals by commissioned artist which he then painted over. Franco explained to Daze magazine that he enjoys collaboration in his art work, comparing it to collaborative efforts in his filmmaking, mentioning that although they are very different from each he is excited to break out from hiding behind the big names of his collaborators. In the latest collection of his work Franco’s collaborations are less apparent than others, he describes them as not only collaborations but as “hybrids or collages .”
If you don’t have the privilege of traveling to London, you can see some of Franco’s work below.
