Nicki Minaj gets a Madame Tussauds waxwork figure!

5 Aug

Nicki Minaj’s successful music career has just hit another milestone: She has been honored with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.

The 32-year-old rapper’s likeness is at

the centre of a larger display depicting a moment from her hugely successful Anaconda video.

Officially unveiled at the museum on Tuesday, the provocative figure will join other artists in the attraction’s Music Room.

      

According to the Los Angeles Times, more than 20 craftspeople were involved with the sculpting process over a period of six months.

First sculpted in clay to precise measurements taken from the Starships artist, the wax figure itself was created in a plaster cast with details like hair and eyes added later.

Nicki’s wax likeness is the central figure in the display, placed in a crouched position seen several times in the Anaconda video.

Real dancers were on-hand – wearing costumes from the video – to flank Nicki’s waxwork.

The figure’s costume – a gold bikini top with black bottoms and high-heeled sandals – also comes straight from the video, which has been viewed almost 500 million times to-date.

In addition to being one of the most popular online videos of 2014, Anaconda was Nicki’s highest-charting single to-date and earned her a Grammy nomination at the end of the year.

Nicki joins singers like Lady Gaga and actresses like Sandra Bullock in the famous museum’s collection.

Although not there in person, Nicki was clearly pleased about her wax likeness, posting several times to social media after its unveiling.

‘YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WTF?!?!?!?!??!?? Had no idea they were really doing this. I would’ve went to Vegas for this. #HappyBirthdayAnaconda,’ she wrote along with a video of the figure.
