Early last month the Las Vegas location of the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum unveiled their Nicki Minaj wax figure. The life size statue was inspired by Minaj's "Anaconda" music video & immediately become controversial, but now the museum has plans to redesign the wax figure. It was designed after a position that Minaj posed in for the actual visual & because of it many feel like it is not a positive representation of who Minaj is as artist & doesn't shed light on all of her many achievements in her music career.

Get more details below.

Since day one of the unveiling many people who have visited the museum have taken pictures with the wax figure & portrayed sexual acts that has angered the museum. To stop further exploitation a brand new statue will be constructed & hopefully the second time around will impact Nicki's image in a respectful manor.

According to Billboard:

"Reports started popping up Wednesday (Sept. 9) that the controversial wax figure was slated for removal, but Kouvaris’ statement seems to reiterate plans announced last month to redesign the set around the wax figure.
On Aug. 18, the museum said it would install extra security around the statue due to an inappropriate fan photo and also mentioned new set-design plans. “We are taking immediate steps to ensure more staff are present in this area and that the set around this particular figure is redesigned so that a picture like this cannot be taken again.”
