Whitney Houston Wax Figures To Show Pop Legend In Four Different Eras

Whitney Houston Wax Figures To Show Pop Legend In Four Different Eras

Whitney Houston’s wax figures are set to debut in New York, depicting the Queen of Pop in four poses to represent different points in her career — something the famous Madam Tussauds has never done before.

The wax figures will be unveiled by Madame Tussauds on Thursday, immortalizing the legendary singer in a medium other than music. In the 200 years the wax figure museum has operated, it’s never made that many wax figures of a person.

Whitney Houston’s family loves the idea of the wax figures, People magazine noted.

“We were extremely honored when Madame Tussauds approached us about doing four figures of Whitney from different points in her 30-year career,” Pat Houston, Whitney’s manager and sister-in-law, said in a statement on behalf of the family. “This is something we are excited to do for the fans.”

After the big debut, the Whitney Houston wax figures will be on their way to different cities.

From People:

“Houston performing the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl is going to Washington, D.C.’s Tussauds; Hollywood will get her in her 1992 movie The Bodyguard; Las Vegas will display the young Houston as seen in her 1988 video for “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)”; and New York will exhibit a more recent likeness of the singer, from a 2009 photo shoot for her final studio album.”

The Whitney Houston wax figures could bring comfort to a family still reeling from the death of the singer almost exactly one year ago. Her mother, Cissy Houston, has spoken about the regret she feels about her daughter’s death, telling Reuters that she tried to help when he learned the depths of Whitney’s drug abuse and partying.

    yeah she had a great career and a beautiful voice when while she was young sober clean and off drugs and clearly not wrapped up in all the bs of life. And I am not saying that anybody is above change and that she could not act as well cause clearly she could.But putting four figures of a celebrity who cleary stopped caring about herself, her career, and how what she did affected her family and anybody around her and someone who let herself turn into nothing but a dope head, I just don't see the point. Or for that matter why waste the money.

    Whitney Houston, like Michael Jackson was a pop icon who accomplished much and not only helped change the music industry, but also as a model was the first African American to appear on the cover of Seventeen magazine. Whitney had a ground breaking career, no matter her personal human faults, this fact cannot and will not be denied. She is the standard of singing for the last 30 years and will continue to inspire countless of young people who want to sing. Her life is a lesson to all; the good and the bad. Like Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin and countless of others who struggled with addition, Whitney will take her place as a legend. Why? Because she was the greatest singer of the modern era, and because she was always true to her art form and never compromised her music. Classics like the greatest love of all, I will always love you, and I look to you will continue to inspire for decades.
