How you sell yourself is how you will be bought, is an old saying from Sierra Leone that best summarizes my thoughts on the recent Nicki Minaj wax figure released by Madame Tussaud’s museum in Las Vegas.
Minaj is crouched on all fours, an image from her famous Anaconda music video. Some have called the wax figure degrading as fans post sexually suggestive photos of themselves with Minaj’s wax figure on social media. The photos have been so suggestive that Madame Tussauds has added security to guard the statue.
Minaj apparently doesn’t mind the exposure. She was aware that Madame Tussauds was going to immortalize her in wax and one report suggests she is flattered by the “rude” fan photos.
For those who are upset and feel Madame Tussauds has degraded Minaj, I say if Minaj feels empowered on all fours that is on her. This is her image. Chill some.
