Nicki Minaj Now Has Her Own Wax Sculpture—And It Looks Nothing Like Her

The thing about art is that it's subjective.

One man's trash is another man's treasure, right?


One person looks at an abstract painting and sees an interpretive representation of the suffocating ennui of human futility, and another sees, like, a teddy bear or whatever.

Art!

This must be—nay, can only be—the explanation for Madame Tussauds new wax sculpture of Nicki Minaj, which looks not so much like Nicki Minaj, but more like... a woman dressed up in a particularly on-point Nicki Minaj Halloween costume?

Maybe?

Like be real, doesn't this statue kind of look like a promotional still from a forthcoming straight-to-DVD Nicki Minaj biopic starring Olivia Munn?

That, too, is open to interpretation of course.

But here's what's not: that looks nothing like Nicki Minaj.

That is indisputable.

It is settled science.

Anyway.

This wax statue of "Nicki Minaj" was put on display January 7 at the Madame Tussauds museum in Berlin.

Its provocative pose is meant to look like the opening scene of the Anaconda video.

This isn't the first showing of the statue.

It was first unveiled in Las Vegas in 2015—shockingly, to Nicki's outspoken approval.

She posted a video of the figure back then with a gushing caption rife with emojis.

But while Nicki was certainly on board back in 2015, many of her Instagram fans at the time were like "LOL WUT," citing everything from the figure's inaccurate skin tone to its resemblance to Kim Kardashian.

So it should come as no surprise that, like so many of Madame Tussauds truly cursed creations before it, when Nicki's statue hit the internet again this week, folks were not really seeing it?

Like, yeah it's gonna be a no from them, dog.

For that reason, they're out.









So anyway.

Whew!

That's a thing that happened.

But on the bright side, it definitely could be worse...

Thank God for small mercies or whatever.

So, Madame Tussauds, what's good?

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
