Nicki Minaj, or rather her likeness, was immortalized by international wax museum Madame Tussauds with a wax figure. The rapper said that the inclusion of her in the museum’s celebrity lineup was “iconic” and shared her joy with fans on Instagram.
Minaj’s figure was unveiled at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Las Vegas Tuesday (August 4). The likeness featured the same outfit and one of the poses Minaj performed in her popular “Anaconda” video. Minaj is the first female rapper to receive the wax treatment by Madame Tussauds, and she was just as surprised as the rest of us.
“Had no idea they were really doing this. I would’ve went to Vegas for this. #HappyBirthdayAnaconda Madam Tussauds Wax Figure- whoever did this,” said Minaj in a caption of one of the photos on Instagram.
The unveiling marked the one-year anniversary of the release of the “Anaconda” single.
