Rihanna Gets Two New Wax Figures at Madame Tussauds
There’s no doubt that Rihanna is a certified superstar, and to echo that notion, Madame Tussauds is honoring the singer with not one, but two brand-new wax figures.
On Tuesday, a rendering of the 24-year-old was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas and at Madame Tussauds Hollywood. The Las Vegas version features RiRi with short red hair, donning her strappy nude bodysuit, while the Hollywood figure showcases the pop singer with her long red ‘do and famous multicolored two-piece.
This isn’t the first time Rihanna has been immortalized in wax. In 2010, a figure of the Barbadian beauty was unveiled in Madame Tussauds Washington, DC, and one year later the museum’s London branch revealed yet another wax rendering of the ‘Diamonds’ singer.
Madame Tussauds has an extensive collection of pop star wax figures, so RiRi is in good company. Her new statue shares the Hollywood museum with Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake, while her Las Vegas rendition shares space with wax figures of Madonna, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and more.
The unveiling of the two new figures comes at the perfect time (nice work, Team RiRi), as Rihanna is set to release her seventh studio album, ‘Unapologetic,’ on Nov. 19.
