The post Lil Nas X Gets a Bizarrely Accurate Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds appeared first on Consequence.
Lil Nas X took his horse to Madame Tussauds: the rapper is immortalized with a hyper-realistic, life-size sculpture of himself in the Hollywood branch of the iconic wax museum.
The wax figure of Lil Nas X wears a replica of the gold Versace armor he wore at the 2021 Met Gala, along with the jewelry and manicure he wore at the event. The icing on the cake is a copy of his diamond grill, making Lil Nas X the first sculpture in Madame Tussauds history to wear one. Unlike poor Rihanna, the wax Lil Nas X is so true to the real thing that it’s almost hard to tell the two apart at first glance.
“Never thought I’d have the pleasure of meeting myself,” Lil Nas X wrote on Instagram. “the sexual tension was too much to expose. [sic]”
“We are delighted to welcome Lil Nas X to the Madame Tussauds Hollywood family,” General Manager Therese Alvich said in a statement. “As a musical, social and fashion icon, this figure is a special asset to our museum. We’re thrilled that his fans are interacting with the star’s identical twin brother!”
And with that, Lil Nas X is now Lil Nas Wax. Watch a clip below of him giving his wax lookalike a hug.
Lil Nas X’s first-ever tour continues through November, and you can get tickets from Ticketmaster. This Friday, he will release a new song called “Star Walkin'”, which will serve as the anthem for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship.
