The YouTube Stars Who Are Changing the Rules in Hollywood

The Internet is bleeding out into real life, by which we mean Youtube stars are starting to become real celebrities.

Jenna is getting her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds in New York City!

The legendary wax museum announced the news on Thursday, revealing that they've been working with Jenna to capture her likeness since the beginning of summer, and that she will be the first wax figure in their collection who will be posed like she's taking a selfie.
