There's no doubt that Lady Gaga is a pop culture phenomenon, and now the outrageous singer is being immortalized in wax -- eight times over!
It was announced Thursday that Madame Tussauds has created eight different statues of Lady Gaga to appear in different museums around the world. Decked out in eight different distinct outfits, the wax versions of the fashion icon will appear at the London, Amsterdam, Berlin, New York, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Shanghai and Hong Kong locations.
"As one of the biggest and most unique talents in the world, Lady Gaga is the perfect subject for the biggest figure launch in Madame Tussauds' history," a press release said. "All of the styles being worked on are classic Gaga and we're sure her fans will be delighted with the unique looks when we unveil the figures next month."
All eight wax figures are being created by a team in West London and were sculpted with clay before being molded in wax. Once formed, a team of expert artists and stylists copied some of the singer's most memorable looks. Four months later, each wax replica is estimated to cost more than $300,000, resulting in a grand total of $2.4 million for the queen of the "Little Monsters," who actually voted on which looks should be recreated.
The winners? Lady in Lace (The Brit Awards 2010), Telephone (Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, March 2010), Harlequin (Grand Intercontinental Hotel Seoul, South Korea), Kinky Boots (Hakkasan restaurant, London), Mini Mouse (BBC Radio 1 studios, London), Hair Hat (Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas), Wired "wing" dress with lightning "eye" (Wetten, dass..? gameshow, Germany) and Big Hair (Phoenix Hotel, Denmark).
We're just surprised the infamous meat dress didn't make the cut.
