Imagine being told at 14-years-old that your nose it too big and your eyes, too small. All this when trying to become a model…
Gisele Bundchen was told her “nose was too big” and her “eyes too small” as a teenage model. The Brazilian beauty weathered the criticism to become one of the world’s wealthiest models, since starting her career in the ’90s. Gisele, the most successful supermodel in the world, has now earned more than a reported $386 million since 2001, according to Forbes.com. The model is celebrating 21 years in the fashion industry with a new Taschen photo book, Gisele, out May 10. It’s a $70 version of version of the $700 book that sold out last year. But she insists talk of retirement is premature.

Update: Prince’s Death at Age 57
Prince’s $10 million Paisley Park in Chanhassen, Minnesota is set to become the “next Graceland.” Sheila E., who was a Prince’s friend and collaborator told Entertainment Tonight: “We’re hoping to make Paisley what [Prince wanted] it to be. [He] was working on it being a museum. He’s been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle.
Officials have allegedly found prescription painkillers in Prince’s possession and at his home near Minnesota, according to a Wednesday NBC News report. It’s currently unclear if the reportedly found painkillers played a role in the music icon’s death. Also according to the report, the county sheriff has asked for the help of the Drug Enforcement Administration in investigating Prince’s death.
The DEA’s role will be to determine where the drugs came from, and what prescriptions Prince had obtained. TMZ reported, however, that Prince was using the painkiller Percocet to treat hip pain associated with a 2010 surgery. Authorities are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding his death.
