Anitta is the first Brazilian singer with a statue at Madame Tussauds
Then Anitta is the most recent honored by the Madame Tussauds museum, famous for its wax figures. It took six months of work – and 20 artists – to complete the full-size reproduction and costume inspired by the Girl from Rio music video. In addition to the singer, the exhibition has Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrósio, Gisele Bündchen, Neymar and Pelé at the New York branch.
Earlier this week, Madame Tussauds had already released details of the production, which took place entirely in London, UK, where the museum is based. During the presentation of the work, the Anitta revealed that it was necessary to stay in the same position for 12 hours to prepare the mold – in August of last year, the singer anticipated the backstage of the photo shoot for the process.
Before the presentation event, which was closed to the public, Anitta stated that “today is a special day for Brazilian music (at least from my point of view)”, published on Twitter. And as soon as the work was revealed, the artist sprayed perfume on the statue and joked: “My God! I’m so hot!” This is the first time that a Brazilian singer has been honored by the museum.
