AceShowbiz - Lil Nas X has a unique way to celebrate getting his very own wax figure. The "Montero" hitmaker chose to prank his friends, including Lizzo, Olivia Rodrigo and Troye Sivan, with his new hyper-realistic wax figure.
On Tuesday, September 20, the "Industry Baby" rapper visited Madame Tussauds Hollywood and he couldn't resist using his wax figure to fool several of his celeb pals. Among the famous faces to get a surprise FaceTime from the 23-year-old musician's incredibly lifelike wax double was Olivia, who answered the call from the car.
"Oh my god, hi!" the "Drivers License" singer said excitedly before quickly becoming confused at why her friend was frozen. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, it's a wax figure! He looks so real, right?" Lil Nas X finally said to break the silence, prompting Olivia to exclaim, "Oh my god! I was like, 'Is he frozen?' "
One celebrity who clocked the doppelganger right away was Troye. "Is that a wax figure?" he asked after a few seconds of silence, though Lil Nas X quickly fired back, "You did not know this wasn't me!"
Lizzo's reaction was also hilarious. The "About Damn Time" hitmaker burst out laughing once her friend revealed the prank. "I f**kng though it was you. I was like, 'Why are you in your Met Gala outfit?' " she said, referencing the gold armor Lil Nas X wore to walk the carpet at the 2021 Met Gala.
Lil Nas X also FaceTimed Rico Nasty. "This is my brother," the "Thats What I Want" hitmaker joked to Rico, "This is the best one of all time." Later, he video-called YouTube star James Charles. Apparently, Lil Nas X failed to fool James as the makeup enthusiast told the rapper, "The Madame Tussaud's logo is right there!!"
Lil Nas X is clearly happy with his wax re-creation, given that when it was unveiled earlier in the day, he gave it a kiss. Along with a video of him kissing the wax figure, the Grammy winner wrote, "never thought i would get the pleasure of meeting myself. the sexual tension was too much to bare. thank you @madametussaudsusa ! STAR WALKIN OUT THURSDAY!"
His Madame Tussauds figure wasn't the only thing Lil Nas X fell for over the past few days. A few days before visiting the World's Greatest Wax Museum, the "Old Town Road" hitmaker sent pizza to religious protesters outside his concert at Boston's MGM Music Hall at Fenway Park and posted a funny video afterward noting how attractive he found one of the Christian dissidents who refused the food.
