Azealia Banks Shares Thoughts On Controversial Nicki Minaj Madame Tussauds Wax Figure

Published: Wednesday 12th Aug 2015 by David

Last week the lyricist Nicki Minaj nabbed her first look at the very first Madame Tussauds wax figure built in her honour.

Unfortunately, not everyone is happy about it.

For, despite being the first wax figure released to celebrate a female rapper, the figure sees the star bent on all fours with her derriere in the air.

Now, her Hip Hop sister Azealia Banks has weighed in on the allegedly racially motivated move on Twitter.

What she had to say about it?

Find out below…

She reached out to Minaj with:

Wow, they finally give Nicki Minaj a wax figure and it’s a statue of her bent over on all fours.As much as that woman has accomplished, they had to put her on all fours. Why not standing up with a microphone in her hand? I would complain and ask for a do-over. That’s such underhanded shade. All people are gonna do is go up to that statue and take pictures shoving their crotch in her face and putting their crotch on her butt. That’s not nice, I don’t feel good about that, but if you like it I love it.

I cant for the life of me find the reason for having a set username or account for a blog that isn’t even verified on any of it’s social media accounts. And ofcourse I said “Food Stamps”. You said you lived in the trailer parks right? #NoShadeJustAskingDamn

      • Molly August 12, 2015

      • Lea August 12, 2015

        @Molly, guh hows VD treating ya?

  2. Lea August 12, 2015

    Gul, Janet’s No Sleep is #1 on the Billboards Adults R&B Charts!

    • Molly August 12, 2015

      Yet still hasn’t outpeaked Ciaras “I Bet”

      • Molly August 12, 2015

        ^^ Dislike my comment all you want but its the TRUTH hooes!!!!!!!

      • Lea August 12, 2015

        Guh the nerve of you even comparing the two, lmfaooo!

      • Molly August 12, 2015

        The nerve of TRANET struggling to outpeak the so called flop Ciara. Kiiii

      • Lea August 12, 2015

        Why does Ciara have a baby daddy instead of a Baby’s Father? And why does her baby daddy have more than two baby mama’s? Why was her child given a step daddy before the child turned one? And why is she out promoting a relationship instead of #Jackie which flopped harder than any R&B album released by a so called mainstream artist this year, last year, and possibly the year before if i’m correct.

      • Get over it???? August 12, 2015

        Why you so pressed? Ciara will always be a Janet stan. She always get ask about Janet in her interviews. She even did a remix of Janet’s “Feedback”. She tributed Janet. She’s obsessed with Janet, She will not be like or better than Janet.

      • Shady81 August 12, 2015

        Girl @Molly everything outpeaked I Bet hell Barbie and the Rockers song Dressing Up from the mid 80’s outpeaked I bet, Jem and the Holograms featuring the Misfits new single outpeaked I bet s*** Slappy Squirrel from Animaniacs entire album of her best one liners outpeaked I bet everyone outpeaked I bet from Noah and his ark right down to moses and the parting of the red sea outpeaked I Bet no matter how you spin it or twist it Ciara is down she’s more done than red meat the b**** is overcooked just stop embarrassing yourself Molly it just doesn’t look cute anymore SMFH.

      • Shady81 August 12, 2015

        I meant done.

  3. Indie August 12, 2015

    I 100% Agree with Azealia!

  4. Cupid August 12, 2015

    I love this girl. Speaks her mind no matter what. I agree completely!

  5. WOW August 12, 2015

    Girl, its her most iconic video and pose… id prefer the anaconda cover to have been the wax figure… acting like everyone of you f*** weren’t just bent over taking some stank BBC… child bye.

  6. Molly August 12, 2015

    Seething over me meanwhile tranet can’t last 2 weeks on the hot 100 with a comeback single chile..

    • Lea August 12, 2015

      Girl don’t you have a man???

      • Lea August 12, 2015

        ***in my shenehneh voice***

    • Keri Qween August 12, 2015

      I bet was promoted everywhere you can’t compare it to no sleep which only has a video and no live performances or promo. Molly your more worried about the Queen than Dance Like Were Making Love.

    • Shady81 August 12, 2015

      @Molly don’t you have a J.O.B. to get to or application to fill out something I heard Wendy’s was hiring better go cop that application.

  7. Molly August 12, 2015

    Can Tranet even get pregnant? Shes 50 years old childless, irrelevant, ugly, and all around T.R.A.S.H. TBH

    • Shady81 August 12, 2015

      B**** you trying it now. Even if she announces her pregnancy tomorrow her announcement would break the Internet, her baby would be prettier then Ciara’s, her child would be worth more money, that child would have it’s own empire, come from a musical royal family, oh and a here’s the kicker Janet won’t be some raggedy ass dude 7th baby mama because she’s married b**** and even if she was to end up being a baby mama that man would have more class then Future’s raggedy ass oh and Janet wouldn’t be dare caught in no baby daddy drama.

  8. Mark111 August 12, 2015

    But what gave them the impression to have her on all fours? Herself. No one is taking her out of character, she’s represents herself as just an @ss.

    • Molly August 12, 2015

      A Rihanna T tbh she’s just as tacky as Nicki so….

    • Jay August 12, 2015

      Of all the poses and stances Nicki has done, they didn’t have to make a wax figure of her in the most degrading way. They could’ve kept it classy & done something with more elegance.

  9. Jake August 12, 2015

    I get what she saying but it Madame Tussauds las vegas

  10. Lisa August 12, 2015

    Nicki has lost her edge. Her time is up. She can sell a single to misguided hood girls but shes boring now. NEXTTTTT

  11. CocoisChanel August 12, 2015


  12. Keri Qween August 12, 2015

    She told the truth. Nicki claims to be tje queen of rap and accomplished so much but they only remember you for being on your knees .But Nicki is trash anyways

  13. Rosie August 12, 2015

    But didn’t the pose come from a softcore pr0n video Onika desperately rushed out after her ~serious~ midtempo ballad didn’t perform as well as she planned? Didn’t it come from “the most iconic video of 2014” that was a “cultural phenomenon” that had tons of impact, according to her stans? That’s what Onika decided to portray herself as, and Madame Tussaud’s went with it.

    • WE FOUND RIHANNA August 12, 2015

      Rosie sis, Where’s your man?

      • Rosie August 12, 2015

        Where’s R8PE’s release date?

  14. ChrisFresh August 12, 2015

    I agree

  15. Teflon Boy August 12, 2015

    If Nicki or her Barbz are vexed that MT has depicted her this way then that’s their boggle. Tbh if Sade or say, Adele was arranged this way then I could see the anger but Nicki ‘look at her b***’ Minaj.., this is exactly how she portrayed herself. That said, sometimes you only realise how bad you look when someone shows you a picture/video of yourself. This is such an instance. The Barbz can deal and instead tweet Onika to class up her act a bit if they don’t want to be embarrassed by her frankly accurate depiction.

  16. You wanna jbeyok love it right bettor like you do then my funky money August 13, 2015

    She spoke the true about nicki minja

  17. R8LATE August 13, 2015

    I mean..I would have rathered her been standing up, like the opening of the video. But it was to celebrate her most highest peaking song on Billboard hot 100 and well. I think its pretty iconic to have a random pic on IG become a Wax Figure. Grizz should be proud also.
