The statue of the 25-year-old singer was unveiled on May 21 at EL&N Café in London, England, featuring Grande’s signature high ponytail, over-the-knee boots, an oversized sweater, and a microphone in one hand. After @popcravenews shared images of the wax figure, Grande appeared to say that she wanted to chat with the people who created the statue.
“i just wanna talk,” she said.
The “Thank U, Next,” singer’s reaction echoed that of her fans, who were quick to voice their complaints and say that the wax figure looks nothing like the singer. Specifically, they said that the statue’s nose and eyebrows aren’t accurate.
You chose Classic Ari!

In April, Madame Tussauds asked fans to select a style for Grande’s wax figure. The options were “Classic Ari,” “Sassy Ari,” and “Princess Ari.” The winner was “Classic Ari.”
The “Thank U, Next” singer’s wax figure will be available for the public to see until late June.
This isn’t the first time a statue has been created in honour of the “Sweetener” singer. In April 2017, Madame Tussauds Blackpool revealed their Grande-inspired creation. Eight months later, another one was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
