If you have not heard well let me be the first to tell you that Nicki Minaj is being ‘honored’ with a wax figure in the Madame Tussauds museum.
They chose Nicki’s most ‘iconic’ pose, where she is bent over on all fours which they thought was perfect for her. However since the unveiling they have had a few problems with the figure.
While Nicki loved the gesture, women like Azalia Banks have spoken out saying, that they could have still honored Nicki standing with a mic and not on all fours.
“All ppl are gonna do is go up to that statue and take pictures shoving their crotch in her face and putting their crotch on her butt. That’s not nice. I don’t feel good about that.”
Nicki Minaj is an artist our visitors told us time and time again they wanted to see in the attraction, so we were thrilled to be able to add her figure to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
We made the decision to celebrate Minaj’s unforgettable pose inspired by the “Anaconda” video because—thanks to her artistry and charisma—it resulted as one of the most iconic videos ever produced. The pose itself recreates an image Minaj published on her own social media channels as a teaser for the video.
As with all people we immortalize in our attractions, her representatives were kept informed every step of the way during the figure-creation process and, once it was unveiled, Minaj herself repeatedly expressed her love of the figure on social media, calling the display “so iconic” and indicating her desire to come see it in person.
Since unveiling Minaj’s figure and the “Anaconda”-inspired experience earlier this month, our visitors have responded with overwhelming positivity, and it has since become one of the most popular additions in the attraction.”
If ever there was an oxymoron it would be what the Museum describes as something artistic, and worth respecting and then watching men from all walks of life act out just what they think about when they see a woman bent over talking about an “anaconda”.
They missed the mark on this one, and so as a result they are beefing up security and issued another statement via Twitter:
Well if Nicki likes it then, I love it!
