Nicki Minaj Wax Figure Sexually Defiled

Earlier this month Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas unveiled a wax figure of rapper Nicki Minaj that commemorated the one year anniversary of the hip-pop diva’s Anaconda video.

The wax version of Nicki is featured posing suggestively on her hands and knees, something not everyone was impressed by. The first to take issue was fellow rapper Azealia Banks, who used her Twitter account to suggest the museum was throwing undercover shade at Nicki by featuring her in such a compromising position.

“Wow, they finally gave Nicki Minaj a wax figure and it’s a statue of her bent over on all fours,” Azealia wrote. “I would complain and ask for a do-over,” she continued. That’s such underhanded shade.”

Azealia went on to note all of Nicki’s accomplishments and asked why her figure couldn’t have been shown standing up with a microphone in hand. She also rightfully guessed that museum visitors would defile the statue by posing suggestively with it.

Fast forward a few weeks and as you can see from the image above, that is exactly what has happened and Madame Tussauds is now offering up an apology.

Via press release the museum apologized to both Nicki and the public, and said extra security would be posted to combat visitors who jump on podiums and make asses of themselves by sexually defiling wax figures.

Ok, they didn’t quite say that, but you get the meaning: No more pics of Nicki’s wax figure being butt-humped will be making its way online.

  1. Azealia Banks is so sharp. She nobody’s fool. Nicki was gushing over this mess but Azealia saw it for the disgrace it was.

  2. @DANA Spot on! I wish they would remove the statue altogether and re-do a more “dignified” one.

  3. Maybe its because Nicki’s is the most recent, but people have been doing obscene things with these wax statues for years. Check Instagram and you’ll see tons of them with various wax figures. I think Nicki got a bit more promo because she originally started tweeting the pics herself. I think she thought it was funny and didn’t expect it to cause such a hoopla.
