Nicki Minaj's Scary Wax Figure Was Moved to Madame Tussauds in Germany
Jun 11, 2023
Nicki Minaj's wax figure made its European debut at Madame Tussauds in Berlin on Tuesday. And much to their horror, many of the rapper's fans saw photos of the statue for the first time.
The wax figure, which attempts to clone the 37-year-old artist in her 2014 music video for "Anaconda," is permanently perched on all fours in a black thong, a gold beaded top, and strappy heels. While the outfit matches the music video, the figure's face doesn't resemble Minaj's.
The replica initially debuted at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas in 2015, when the "Barbie Dreams" rapper said on Instagram that it was "so iconic." She reposted a photo of fans posing with the figure on her Instagram and captioned the post "Naw b---- hold on" with laughing emoji.
Naw bitch hold on. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

The figure's 2020 European stop marked the first time that many of Minaj's fans saw the statue, and some were initially very confused.
Others said the statue was "disrespectful" and were frustrated with the discrepancies between the real-life rapper and the replica.
