Nicki Minaj is totally cool with everyone taking racy pics with her Madame Tussauds wax figure! Snap away! She loves her fans, no matter what they’re doing, according to our EXCLUSIVE source!
Nicki Minaj, 32, has been taking in all the controversy surrounding her wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas — in which she’s posed on all fours — and laughing it all off, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. She’s actually flattered by the photos people are taking with her sexy statue!
Nicki’s wax figure became the subject of controversy after one intrepid museum patron posted a photo of himself humping the statue from behind. Lovely. The wax figure depicts Nicki in one of the scenes from her famous, sexy “Anaconda” video, and wasn’t just an arbitrary decision to display Nicki down on all fours, but it still left a bad taste in people’s mouths (like Azealia Banks) to see her in that position after dudes decided to get dirty with the wax figure.
Per Nicki, though — no worries. It’s totally fine with her! “Nicki loves her Madame Tussauds wax figure,” a source told us EXCLUSIVELY. “She loves her fans and loves all the attention. It’s all good and all flattering. It’s not up to her to decide how people should pose with the figure. Again, she says the figure and pose are iconic.”
A calm and cool response! After the photo in question circulated, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas issued a statement apologizing for the incident. They stated that they have staff monitoring all statues, but at that time, the guard wasn’t present. Their solution to make sure more “inappropriate” photos aren’t taken with Nicki’s likeness? The museum is taking “immediate steps” to beef up security, as well as redesign the set to make it harder to get to Nicki’s wax figure.
Someone who will be pleased to hear about this move? Nicki’s beau, Meek Mill, 28, who is apparently very upset about what people are getting caught doing to his beloved’s figure. Nicki has told him much of the same — don’t worry about it!
“Nicki is loving everything with the controversy of her wax figure and what her fans are being photographed doing to it,” our source said. “But the one person that thinks its rude and disgusting is Meek. She appreciates his concerns but is telling him not to worry about it and that her fans are having fun and Meek should be happy because he gets the real thing.”
Meek, listen to your girlfriend! She’s got your best interests at heart, dude! HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s good that Nicki’s so cool about her wax figure, or should she be more concerned?
