In a controversial move, cosmetic giant COVERGIRL has made reincarnation of evil and notable shit-stirrer, The Eye of Sauron, the face of their latest mascara campaign.

The decision has been blasted by critics, accusing the brand of being "irresponsible," "teaming with a dark overlord," and "not thinking of the children."

A spokesperson from COVERGIRL has waved off the complaints saying, “The Eye of Sauron is bright, bold, and doesn’t let anything stand in his way, which is everything that COVERGIRL embodies. With his edgy style and fearless attitude to life, we believe The Eye of Sauron will truly capture the hearts of the masses and set the world on fire.”

Friends and family of Mermaid Princess, Ariel, are becoming increasingly concerned with her dramatic change in appearance thanks to a series of alleged surgical enhancements. Most noticeably, her new legs.

It’s said the transformation happened almost immediately. A plastic surgeon who did not operate on the Princess, and is not affiliated with her in any way says, “It looks like she definitely had a leg transplant. Maybe even two.”

Ariel’s publicist has refuted the claims saying, “It's utter nonsense. She's proud of her Mermaid heritage and still has her tail. It’s just contouring.”

3. Shock Split: Frodo Baggins and the One Ring Consciously Uncoupling

It’s official: the one thing the Ring could not bind was Frodo Baggins’ heart. After years of journeying through Middle-Earth together, the One Ring and Frodo have announced they are “consciously uncoupling.”

Although the pair are yet to release a formal statement, it is believed the reason behind the split is due to their tumultuous relationship and deep co-dependency issues. An anonymous source told BuzzFeed, “Frodo has become incredibly possessive of the Ring, while the Ring is being super controlling and always makes Frodo feel invisible. Not to mention that the Ring’s ex keeps showing up.”

Frodo and the Ring were last spotted at Mount Doom.

The Wizarding World has been shaken to the core with the revelation that Harry Potter, “The Boy Who Lived,” may not be the true Chosen One.

BuzzFeed can exclusively report that a prophecy made by Sybill Trelawney, the great-great-granddaughter of renowned seer Cassandra Trelawney, revealed Neville Longbottom also had a shot at being the Chosen One.

According to our source, "The prophecy pretty much narrowed it down to two kids, but the idiot eavesdropping didn’t listen in properly, which is why Harry got chosen. I don’t know why You-Know-Who didn’t choose my grands- I mean Neville. He would’ve been just as good, if not better.”

Charlotte, the orb-weaver most well known for saving a pig from becoming Sunday breakfast, was recently spotted at a county fair showing off her post-spider-babies body. The star of Charlotte's Web only finished wrapping her egg sac in silk an hour ago and has already bounced back into shape.

“Charlotte’s been working herself to death on a strict all-liquid diet, and has been staying up all night to work out,” a close friend of the spider told BuzzFeed. “She really feels the pressures of Hollywood. She’s dying to maintain her shape because as they say, you gotta be thin or the phone won't ring!”

Looks like all that hard work paid off, Charlotte!

You’re meant to be perfect.” While another fan stated, “Your actions showed me you’re just as human as the rest of us, and I find this incredibly disappointing."

Friends of the supporting star of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Gollum, fear for his life as he appears to have taken his dieting obsession to an all new extreme. The emaciated looking hobbit has allegedly shunned all carbs and starches, instead choosing a diet of raw fish, rabbit and small orcs.

“He outright refused me ‘taters,” one source says. “It’s rude, is what it is.” Gollum also reportedly hurled lembas bread over a ledge in a violent rage, rather than subject himself to a food that could possibly contain grains, legumes or gluten .

Reputable news source, TMZ, has obtained security footage of Elizabeth Bennet attacking her brother-in-law, George Wickham, in a carriage after leaving the annual Pemberley Ball.

The 30 second video shows Elizabeth thrashing her bonnet wildly at Wickham, while younger sister, Lydia, sits idly in the corner.

An unnamed source revealed to BuzzFeed that the altercation was most likely because Wickham is a douchebag who tried to elope with a 14 year-old girl, gambled himself into oblivion, wooed Elizabeth Bennet and then later ran away with her 15 year-old sister, bringing disgrace to her family, and most of all, to himself.
