Madame Tussauds Hollywood unveils Lil Nas X wax figure

Rapper is first wax figure to have a grill

Lil Nas X has revealed his new wax figure for the world’s greatest wax museum, Madame Tussauds Hollywood. 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 2x 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 was going to be good but this is like, scary amazing,” he says.

“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!” shares Madame Tussauds Hollywood General Manager Therese Alvich.

More exciting news for Lil Nas X fans this week as the artist is also set to release “Star Walkin'” on Friday, September 23rd, a collaboration with Riot Games and the anthem of the League of Legends’ 2022 Worlds Tournament. Unique, direct access to A-list celebrities allows Madame Tussauds to create the best wax figures in the world.

In just a few short years, Lil Nas X has reached undeniable global fame through his internet mastery, iconic fashion sense and his steady stream of No. 1 hits including “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow and “That’s What I Want.”
