Whoa, and you thought your last vacation was hardcore!!!
Photographer Lee Thompson recently took what must undoubtedly be the most epically scary selfie in South American history when he climbed atop Christ the Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro.
It was feat enough just to get inside the huge landmark — Lee needed to obtain special permission from the Brazilian government — but climbing all the way to the top?
Holy sh*t! (Speaking of which, we hope he went to the bathroom before his ascension.)
See Lee risk life, limb, and probably his immortal while scaling the super-sized savior…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Kanye West may have not been innerested in attending the 2013 Grammy Awards this year, as he instead chose to spend his weekend hanging out with Kim Kardashian, Will Smith and Christ The Redeemer in Brazil, but that doesn't mean his soon-to-be-baby-mama is not positively THRILLED with her man now being able to add three more awards to his already significant collection!
The reality starlet took to Twitter immediately upon hearing the delightful news, and exclaimed:

Usain Bolt was down in Rio this week and just yesterday visited a special statue.
He saw Christ the Redeemer, the famous statue on top of a hill above Rio.
Bolt was surround by reporters and fans when the photo opportunity came up.
Jesus struck his signature pose and so Usain decided to do his pose right back!
The Bolt pose!
Lookin' good there, Usain!
Must be nice being the fastest man in the world, getting to hang out with Jesus and all. LOLz!

It seems Katy Perry was feeling a little religiously-inclined promoting Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D Tuesday in Brazil.
So the record-making, bursting bundle of colorful light took a trip to Rio's FAMED Christ the Redeemer statue (above)!
Kaypers does have quite a God-centric background, but while the statue is a religious icon, it is also culturally, historically AND architecturally important to the country of Brazil!
Way to take in some of the local sights, Katy!
We wonder… did you find inspiration for your dark & twisty third album in stone-Christ's gynormous arms?

You know the statue. The giant one in Rio De Janeiro that's featured in any action movie that goes south of the border, basically, with a helicopter shot circling it. You know. That one that looks like Jesus is going to hug the city.
Well Rihanna got to
