Amy Winehouse: Back to Wax


A wax figure of Amy Winehouse was unveiled today at Madame Tussaud's in Central London.


The singer herself was not there to see the strikingly sober version of herself, but her parents Mitch and Janis were.


Earlier this month, Winehouse expressed dissatisfaction that she was being turned into a waxwork.

Said the singer, in perhaps the most prescient quote of the year: "I thought you had to be dead almost before they made a wax of you."

  1. Do they have the display set up to reek of alcohol? That would have been a nice bit of realism don't you think?

  3. Couldn't be too dissatisfied - you have to sit several times for Tussaud's artists to take measurements and photos and stuff...Jeez Mary - you were happy to do that!

  4. Amy's gonna have to knock a hell of a lot of wood after the death comment...You know what? Fuck it. She should just grab a bat, head into the forest, and just start wailing on some trees.

  5. You gotta admit, that's one helluva good likeness of her.

    Sadly, it might last longer than Ms. Winehouse.

  10. Can you get scabies from the wax figure? That's another little detail I hope they got right.

  11. And the track marks. I don't see any track marks. (Maybe they're between her toes.)

  12. Her legs are way skinnier than that. And her hair is way more ratty.

  13. "I thought you had to be more than a cracked out one hit wonder before they made a wax of you."
