Miley Cyrus ‘Wrecking Ball’ Wax Figure Swings Into Madame Tussauds [PHOTO]
Miley Cyrus came in like a wrecking ball, but thank goodness she didn't actually demolish Madame Tussauds. Yep, the singer's iconic music video was immortalized in the form of an epic wax figure.
The figure, which will be installed in the Madame Tussauds Las Vegas music room, shows Miley sitting atop a wrecking ball, wearing only a white tank top, white underwear and combat boots. It's strikingly (no pun intended) similar to her "Wrecking Ball" music video.
Billboard reports that the wax figure and wrecking ball weigh more than 200 pounds combined. They're suspended from a 30-foot chain, which you can see in the photo below. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a wax re-creation of the sledgehammer Miley licks in the video.
Following its release, Miley's "Wrecking Ball" video set a Vevo record with more than 19.3 million views. That number bested previous record-holders One Direction, whose "Best Song Ever" video scored 12.3 million views in the same amount of time.
With its stark yet moving imagery, Miley's video became an instant classic and meme generator. Even Pharrell raved about the visual, telling Showbiz 411, "Her video is beautiful and incredibly, like, charming, and you see all of her poise, and then you’re going to realize how much of a triple threat she is."
Anyone who needs additional proof of Miley's staying power needs to look no further than Madame Tussauds, where her wax figure will be honored.
