- Beyoncé just got a really amazing wax figure at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, you guys.
- It looks just like her!!!
Beyoncé is literally the Queen, and as such, she should be treated accordingly, right? One would certainly think so, which is why two years ago when the famous, celebrity-filled wax museum formally known as Madame Tussauds said Hey, let’s make a Yoncé wax figure! and did such a sh*tty job at making it actually look like Bey, the hive was PISSED.
Why? Welp, let’s start with the fact that the wax figure looked absolutely nothing like Beyoncé. The facial features were off, the weave was all wrong, and don’t even get me started on how pale and whitewashed Faux-Yoncé’s skin tone was, okay? The nerve. The audacity! It was all very upsetting.

Basically, people on the internet were like:
After the backlash, Madame Tussauds pulled the figure from their floor, replaced it the following week, and issued an apology through Entertainment Tonight about the skin tone of Beyoncé’s wax figure.
“Our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted,” a spokesperson wrote. “Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures, which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.” Mhmm, sure Jan!
But now, the day for justice is officially here. A year after another atrocious Faux-Yoncé wax figure found its way into Madame Tussauds Niagra Falls (yes, really), the holy grail of Beyoncé wax figures has finally come, and it’s modeled after the iconic, life-changing moment in U.S. history known Beychella.
Madame Tussauds Las Vegas unveiled the figure and it looks just like Beyoncé, you guys! No whitewashed skin, janky facial features, or bad weave to be seen:

This isn’t the only good Beyoncé wax figure, believe it or not. Madame Tussauds London threw their Yoncé figure out too and made a shiny brand new one of Beyoncé from Coachella weekend two.
