Rapper, singer, songwriter, and viral phenomenon Lil Nas X has revealed his new wax figure for the world’s greatest wax museum, Madame Tussauds Hollywood. Lil Nas X has reached undeniable global fame in just a few short years through his internet mastery, iconic fashion sense, and a steady stream of #1 hits, including “Old Town Road” feat. Billy Ray Cyrus, “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name),” “INDUSTRY BABY” feat. Jack Harlow and “THAT’S WHAT I WANT.”
He revealed his wax figure in an unforgettable side-by-side moment. The striking figure is wearing a replication of his iconic gold Versace suit armor worn at the 2021 Met Gala. Intricately detailed, Madame Tussauds artists also replicated the Versace earring, choker, and nail art from the custom look. Not to mention Lil Nas X is the first wax figure to have a grill!
By boldly and unapologetically expressing himself online and in his music, Lil Nas X has become a role model for promoting progression and acceptance across the music industry. At just 23 years old, the 2-time Grammy-winning sensation has an extensive list of accomplishments, including becoming the first openly gay rapper nominated in top categories at the Grammys. He released his critically acclaimed debut album MONTERO in 2021 and is currently on his first-ever world tour. The latest addition to his legacy comes in the form of a wax twin – and according to Lil Nas X, it’s the best one he has ever seen. “Are we twins or what? I knew this would be good, but this is, like, scary amazing,” said Lil Nas X.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Lil Nas X into the Madame Tussauds Hollywood family. As a musical, social, and fashion icon, this figure marks an extraordinary addition to our museum. We’re excited for his fans to interact with the star’s identical twin!” said Madame Tussauds Hollywood General Manager Therese Alvich.
Madame Tussauds Hollywood continues to highlight each city’s heroes and icons in mind-blowing accurate detail in a life-like persona. Unique, direct access to A-List celebrities allows Madame Tussauds to create the best wax figures in the world. This week brings more exciting news for Lil Nas X fans as the artist is also set to release “STAR WALKIN'” this Friday, September 23, a collaboration with Riot Games and the anthem of the League of Legends’ 2022 Worlds Tournament.
