Diddy's wax replica, which was dressed in a white tuxedo jacket and black pants, was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Museum in New York on Tuesday, December 15.
Music mogul P. Diddy is the latest celebrity who gets wax treatment after some other music performers, like Snoop Dogg, Usher and Notorious B.I.G. just to name a few. The 40-year-old hip-hop singer attended the launching of his wax replica at Madame Tussauds Museum in New York on Tuesday, December 15.
Spotted sporting a sharp gray suit, Diddy met his wax statue which was dressed in a white tuxedo jacket and black pants. He was accompanied to the event by his mother, sister, nephew and son Justin. Speaking to MTV about his wax, he said he had to stand still for three hours in front of the sculpting team while they captured his likeness.
He, moreover, gushed "I went with the most recent likeness of myself. They wanted to do me live, how I was. It wasn't like I could give them an old shot. What you see is what you get. This is the first time I'm seeing it. It's to my liking. It looks very realistic - one of the more realistic ones."
Posing with his replica, Diddy took a moment to rub the figure's mouth and kept smiling. "I wanna thank my mother, she was the originator of the wax figure," he jokingly stated. "It's hard to explain looking at yourself like this," he continued. "They did an excellent job."
