Gwen Stefani Speechless over Her 'Crazy' Realistic Wax Statue

Looks like Gwen Stefani really took her song “Don’t Speak” to heart on Wednesday. Or was that the wax figurine of her exact likeness that didn’t speak? It may be a little more difficult to tell who the real No Doubt singer is and who has been immortalized in wax. Stefani, 40, was in Las Vegas Wednesday as her body double was unveiled at the Venetian hotel’s Madame Tussauds. And when the curtain dropped revealing a midriff-baring Stefani to the real Stefani, the songstress said, “That is so me.” For several minutes the mother-of-two stood in awe at her wax statue, touching its abs, staring into the eyes and putting her arm around the figure. “That is so weird,” she told her friends. “I can’t believe it. Can you believe it?” The figure is said to have taken over 500 hours to sculpt and mold and reportedly cost $300,000 to make. “That is crazy,” Stefani said while viewing the statue, six months after sitting down with sculptors for measurements in London. Madame Tussauds organizers said the Stefani was consistently one of the most requested wax figures that customers wanted to see. –Mark Gray

WoW!!!! Very realistic!!!! I have been a huge No Doubt/Gwen Stefani fan for over 17+ years ….. I’m excited for her. And JENNIFER: STFU!! You don’t know what you’re talking about. For an advocate of maturity, you sure are pretty immature yourself to be negative and post such a jealous comment like that on Open mouth, insert foot. What a fool you are, Jennifer.

Hey Angela … I agree with you with the whole “people starving; kids working at such tender ages” but we all can’t be Captain Save A Hoe. Life cannot stop because of the world’s issues. I agree $30k is outrageous but when your doing this for one of the world’s LARGEST entertainers ….. it doesn’t seem like much to part with. That’s just my opinion, and I’m sticking to it =P

Love her! on

Congrats to all the artists involved. The wax figure IS amazing! There are so many people out there in the world that are so talented, including wax sculpture artists. They definitely chose the right artist to model. Gwen Stefani is talented and kind.

Yeah, the “Bananas” song you refer to has a title. It’s called “Hollaback Girl”, and it’s a great song. You know, my parents always told me that just because you have the right to say something negative doesn’t mean you have to.
Looks great, Gwen! We love ya!
