Hot Shots: Madame Tussauds Hollywood Unveils New Rihanna Wax Figure

Published: Tuesday 13th Nov 2012 by Sam

Loved by many, slated by many, and oh so debated by many. Say what you will about Rihanna, she’s undoubtedly one of Pop’s most pronounced polarizers.

It’s a unique positioning Madame Tussauds Hollywood have recognised, as evidenced by their new wax figure of the model which was unveiled today by Pussycat Doll creator Robin Antin.

And though the 24 year old boasts as much stage presence as her wax counterpart, we must give credit where its due…to her team. For, with new album ‘Unapologetic’ in stores next week (November 19th), the timing of this is as convenient as it is genius. If only their talents were used on more able acts…oh the prospects.

Anyway…

    I love how Grape tries to dodge the fact that Diamonds is #1 on iTunes and it’s the fastest single of her career. Not even WFL. Rihanna is getting bigger and the haters can’t stand it.

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess November 13, 2012

  13. Benron (I sold Bey Her Fake Bump) November 13, 2012

    Ladies and gentlmen, sam has been diagnosed with a new syndrome taking over Beyawnce fans everywhere. Pressed syndrom.

    His articles where he posts pieces or Rihanna interviews to make her look bad without even trying to post even a link to the rest, his consitent and constant need to try to convince everyone Rihanna’s music is supposedly terrible and that she is untalented and a “puppet” while highlighting the negatives of her career that everyones has.

    Dealing with an international superstar that you hate just becoming bigger and bigger must hurt poor Samnthas feelings. Well, better luck next time, maybe beyonce will pull an adele… and only stay in the hot100 top 10 for a week. Sam better hope…

  16. Pop Royalty (The International Navy’s Representative) November 13, 2012

    this is what’s meant by being a POP ICON , you EARN IT , you don’t call yourself an ICON and wake up the next day thinkin’ you are one , events like that CONFIRM rihanna’s international status as the WORLD’S FAV POP FEMALE ARTIST.

    reminds me of the LOUD ERA when everything was just PERFECT 😥

    the HAIR COLOR ain’t right tho. #ArtisticTip

    and who’s this irrelevant b**** who’s actin’ CUTE ?

    • EzraJKnight November 13, 2012

      Wasn’t he on Rupaul’s Drag race?

    • MC November 13, 2012

      “you EARN IT , you don’t call yourself an ICON and wake up the next day thinkin’ you are one” What happened to you? Since when are you jumping on the basic stan category? Ch…..

      Common regular stan misconceptions:

      Popularity ≠ Impact

      •Commercial Success ≠ Talent

      • People laughing at your failures ≠ People being jealous of your success

      • 100,000+ Twitter Followers ≠ Relevance

      • Being a Trending Topic ≠ Being #1 on the Billboard Charts

      • Commercial Success ≠ Talent

      • Being able to name drop obscure musical artists ≠ Superiority to other stans.

      •Taking a nap on stage while your background dancers distract everybody ≠ Slaying.

      • Singing live for 2.5 minutes without losing your breath or pissing yourself ≠ Slaying a vocal performance

      • Taking a bath ≠ Not Taking a bath and putting on clean clothes

      • 10 million Facebook Friends ≠ 10 million records sold

      • 10 million worldwide ≠ A Diamond record in the United States

      • 70 million YouTube Views ≠ 70 million records sold around the world

      Most commonly misused words in Stan Wars:

      • Talented
      • Talented
      • Great
      • Good
      • Queen
      • Legend

        @MC,,,,,Yo list is good but it don’t fit Rihanna in any kind of a way at all, nada because you and the nutt cases here never gives Rihanna credit for shyt, and by the laws of Logic that
        Says to anybody with a WORKING brain that something is wrong with that picture, Deery.

        You see we all have got some good in Us and with Rihanna while shes no Mariah, but on the other hand then neither is Beyonce….And if your list was right them yo ass would have all of the word that is used to descrive Rihanna like
        Talentless
        S***
        Her Big Head
        She sleeps around
        She stays Naked
        She’s a S****
        Her mom is a h**
        She need to be dead
        She need to go back to barbado’s
        Beyonce has done that
        Willow is better then Her
        Beyonce is better then Her
        Rita is better then Her
        She don’t have a #1 Album in the US.
        She’s talentless h**
        She bough Her Likes on facebook
        She’s an Illumini Puppet….
        ACDC Will out sell Her ass
        Mary j will out sell her
        She always drops her music around the holiday
        She will soon be forgotten
        She has peaked year before last
        Her music isn’t Memorable

        She pays all her money to her label and jay
        Many of you are as full of shyt as a Holiday Turkey…
