Selena Will Finall Be Immortalized With Her Own Wax Figure In Hollywood
It feels like every month we repeat ourselves when we say Selena’s having the best year ever, but it just keeps getting better.
Madame Tussauds announced that the queen of Tex-Mex will be immortalized with her own wax figure at the Madame Tussaud Meuseum in Hollywood on Aug. 30.
The timing could not be more perfect as it’ll come on the 21st anniversary of her last studio album, “Dreaming Of You.”
As seen in the video above, sculptors traveled to Corpus Christi, Texas, to learn more about Selena’s physique, mannerisms and her personality.
Colin Thomas, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hollywood announced: “At Madame Tussauds, our figures represent icons who have made a significant impact on our culture. That perfectly describes Selena. Her influence has transcended generations and her passionate fans continue to be inspired by her to this day. We recognize this and in response, we are proud to join her fans in celebrating her legacy by immortalizing her.”
This grand announcement comes after almost 10k of her fans petitioned for this to become a reality.
It’s only natural that our first question is: what will her waxfigure be wearing? The people of Madame Tussauds gave us this preview…
