Singing sensation Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, took to social media on Tuesday (Jan 31) and shared glimpses of her Madame Tussauds wax figure with some hilarious videos. The body-positivity queen wrote on Twitter that it was “single-handedly one of the most terrifyingly meta moments of my life.”
“Thank you @MadameTussauds – now I know what a twosome with Lizzo is like 😳” she added, alongside a video of herself wherein she was about to lock lips with her wax figure. FYI, the “Good As Hell” artist’s wax figure in Vegas comes days after Madame Tussauds Berlin unveiled Beyonce’s wax figure. But hey, this one looks exactly like Lizzo.
Fans were in awe of her debut wax figure and congratulated the singer in the comment section. “My second to last goal as a stan is to meet u, but until that can happen I’m okay with meeting wax liz instead,” one fan wrote. Another wrote, “It looks so real! Congratulations!”
Lizzo, The Queen Of Self-Love…
Lizzo’s success is a mix of controversies and strength. The 34-year-old artist is known for sharing her journey towards body positivity and self-love after years of struggle with her body. For instance, her Grammy-winning music is in itself an example of how one should love themselves regardless of their physical appearance, shape or size.
In a previous interview with the International Press Association, the Grammy-winning artist spoke about her journey to accept herself and advocate for body positivity. Her recent speech on Instagram is another example of how she keeps on inspiring her fans to be proud of who they are. She says in the video:
“I have seen comments go from, ‘Oh my gosh, I liked you when you were thick, why’d you lose weight?’ to, ‘Oh my gosh, why’d you get a BBL? I liked your body before,’ to, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so big. You need to lose weight, but for your health,’ to, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re so little, you need to get ass or titties or something,’ to, ‘Oh my gosh, why did she get all that work done? It’s just too much work… Are we OK? Do you see the delusion”.
Get her point? In December 2019, Lizzo faced massive backlash when she twerked at a Lakers game, exposing her thong. “Never ever let somebody stop you or shame you from being yourself,” she responded in an Instagram Live video. “This is who I’ve always been. … I don’t ever want to censor myself because I’m suddenly famous.”
“I don’t want to censor myself because everyone’s looking at me now. I’m not going to quiet myself. I’m not going to shrink myself because somebody thinks that I’m not sexy to them,” Lizzo said on the issue. Well, the artist loves herself and Madame Tussauds decided to portray that in the best way possible. What do you think?
