Madonna through the ages at London’s Madame Tussauds

Three versions of Madonna, as she has appeared over the course of her career, are on display at London’s Madame Tussauds museum. As well as her current look, new figures have been created showing the singer in guises from her Sticky And Sweet tour and the Like A Virgin era. Three dancers who have worked with the enduring pop star helped launch the waxworks, two of which will be shipped to Tussauds in Tokyo next Spring.

Psy talks about Madonna

…when asked who the most memorable partner he’s worked with was thus far during his past few months of promotions, Psy responded the legendary Madonna remained the most memorable.

He explained, “Madonna was very fascinating. I went to the performance rehearsal and found Madonna laying on the stage floor. After seeing me, Madonna told me, ‘On stage you can touch me wherever you want.’”

He went on to the laughter of the set, “Since she’s a senior way above me, I did as she wanted!”
