Another "wax" statue of the famous hip-hop star, Beyonce Knowles, has been unveiled in London by Madame Tussauds and the uncanny resemblance to Beyonce has many drooling in love.
Famous American singer, actress, and businesswoman, Beyonce, has once again been honored with a new wax statue. Madame Tussauds London took to her Instagram page to announce the new edifice in honor of the music star.
The figure which was adorned in a cropped yellow sweatshirt, denim cutoffs and knee-high boots celebrates Beyonce's 2018 Coachella performance and it was rightfully captioned,
"It's time to bow down to THE QUEEN ? ?"
The wax statue had Bey standing in her favorite power pose, and her fist held high in the air. Another image shared showed the statue placed among their royal forms (precisely between Kate Middleton and Princess Meghan Markle) jokingly replacing the spot of the Queen for a day!
"Take your throne, Queen Bey," the caption to the image read.
Fans of the "Spirit" singer were excited and gushed about the honor placed on their Queen.
Knowing how hard Beyonce has worked before the title of a Queen was betrothed to her by her fans, it can be agreed that it was a well-deserved honor.
Speaking about honoring the singer, the General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, Steve Davies, described Beyonce as a "living legend" who rightly deserves the crown on her head.
“Beyoncé is a living legend, rightly crowned Queen Bey by her legions of fans and industry insiders," Steve Davies said. "If anyone is fitting of a claim to The Queen’s spot in our attraction for the very first time, it’s Beyoncé."
The placement of the wax edifice beside Meghan Markle also cements the coexisting friendly relationship between the celebrities. Queen Bey recently met the Duchess of Sussex in London, during the premiere of "The Lion King."
On the official website of Madame Tussauds, it is revealed that they
"decided the only fitting way laud official music royalty is to position her on the most regal of all stages alongside her Royal pals, "The Duke, and Duchess of Sussex."
This isn't the first time Beyonce would get such recognition. The superstar was honored with a previous wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Manhattan. But unlike this new edifice, the old wasn't well received by her fans, as it was booed for "whitewashing" the singer's blonde hair.
Almost a decade ago, her hometown also honored her with a monument, after she gave birth to her youngest child, Blue Ivy Carter. The Tussauds museum has also made wax artifacts of Elton John, Tony Blair, etc.
With or without public honors like these, Beyonce has since written her name on a platter of gold. The "Nala" crooner will always be a figure to be reckoned with in the music, movies and even the fashion industries. She holds a vast number of awards including 28 MTV music video awards.
Beyonce has also made history as the female artist with the highest number of Grammy nominations. She is married to the billionaire business mogul, rapper and entrepreneur, Jay-Z.
