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?

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:

Who's the one who got away?
