Her wax figure, complete with beehive and sailor tattoos, will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London in late July.
Always one to keep the public talking, not about her music career but for her troubled personal life, Amy Winehouse is set to join stars in wax at Madame Tussauds in London. The famous wax museum is set to unveil the singer's waxwork next month.
The museum confirmed that matter Monday, June 30. Madame Tussauds general manager Edward Fuller was quoted as commenting, "We are really pleased to be creating Amy" adding that "She is a real icon in modern British music, a continual award winner, and an internationally recognized star widely requested by our guests."
Amy's waxwork, complete with sailor tattoos and her trademark of beehive hairdo, will be added to a gallery of pop and rock stars, including Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Beyonce Knowles and Justin Timberlake, which is slated to be unveiled in late July.
Amy, who's been diagnosed with emphysema, was snapped returning to a London clinic for further treatment following performances at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday and the Glastonbury rock festival in south-west England at the weekend.
