Madame Tussauds’ New Nicki Minaj Wax Figure Has People Baffled

Madame Tussauds is known to create wax figures of our favourite celebrities, but sometimes they miss the mark.

On Tuesday, the chain’s Berlin location unveiled a new figure of Nicki Minaj, and while the museum outfitted it in clothes from Minaj’s 2014 “Anaconda” video, the depiction bears little resemblance to the rapper. Many on Twitter were quick to point this out.

Madame Tussauds has come under fire for its awkward takes on celebrities in the past. In 2017, the museum received criticism for a wax figure tribute to Beyoncé that wasn’t aesthetically pleasing. However, fans were quite pleased after seeing the new figure of Queen B that was added to the flagship London location in September 2019. 

Drake also received the wax figure treatment at the Las Vegas branch, as has Ariana Grande in the London museum, though, like Minaj, people also thought Grande’s figure looked nothing like her.
