The Beyhive Is Not Feeling Bey’s Wax Figure

The Beyhive is in complete uproar over a brand new wax figure of Beyonce’ that has emerged at Madame Tussauds in New York.

The new wax figure became memorable not for being a beautiful tribute to the singer, but because the figure looks absolutely nothing like Beyonce.


The figure has almost no resemblance to the Beyonce. The skin tone, hairstyle, facial structure, as well as the body type looks nothing like the real Queen Bey.

One of the major issues with Beyonce’s new wax figure is that the statue is several shades lighter than the pop singer. Her actual figure resembled Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears’ body types rather than Bey’s own curvaceous figure.

Fans, artists, and professionals have been very vocal about their disappointment and rage that Madame Tussauds would readily display a figure that does not resemble the icon is designed for.

Pop Crush reports that this is not the first or only figure of Beyonce that the museum has authorized, however, it is now being considered the most unfavorable figure of the current heavily criticized statues.

Vogue reports that the opinions on Beyonce’s other wax statues were so varied that Allure’s Editor in Chief Michelle Lee wondered if the sculpturers had ever really seen Beyonce.

Moving forward, wax sculptures should listen Beyonce’s music for some clues in the future. Specifically “Formation,” in which Beyonce celebrated her black skin and “Jackson Five nostrils.”
