Madame Tussauds Removes Nicki Minaj’S Wax Figure
Last month Madame Tussauds unveiled Nicki Minaj as the latest musician to join their Las Vegas gallery. The rapper’s figure was later disrespected by thirsty fans who flocked to the wax statue to pose with it in freaky ways.
Now Madame Tussauds has decided to remove the infamous figure for good!
Via Saint Heron:
A month after it’s debut, Nicki Minaj‘s wax figure is set to be removed and replaced. Following numerous photographs and visitors inappropriate behavior surrounding the “Anaconda” inspired statue, Madame Tussauds heightened security for the figure. When that proved to be ineffective they decided it may be best to take “immediate steps to ensure more staff are present in this area and that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture like this cannot be taken again.”
The real question is how this figure even came to exist. According to the official Madame Tussauds website, the subjects of the wax figures are very involved in the creation process. Nicki Minaj was essentially notified via social media that it was on display. Perhaps with the new statue the museum will consult her and actually get the proper measurements.
Can you really blame them for removing the wax figure??
