Lady Gaga is one of the most recognizable stars out there. She’s worn a meat dress, shown up to the Grammys in an egg and has some of the most bizarre-yet-catchy lyrics in the music business. Even her name alone speaks individuality. Yet, when an artist in Lima, Peru, was asked to create a wax figure of the singer, they somehow got it horribly, horribly wrong, as Refinery29 first reported.
On Thursday, a Gaga fan account tweeted a photo of a new wax figure meant to resemble Lady Gaga dressed in the iconic raw beef dress she wore to the 2010 Video Music Awards. But instead of Gaga’s usual glossy-white hair and intricately put-together outfit, fans were instead met with a strawlike wig and smock that didn’t do a shred of justice to singer’s memorable red carpet ensemble.

Naturally, Gaga fans weren’t happy with the wax museum disrespecting their Mother Monster. So as the internet does, they dragged the statue to the depths of hell. A majority of users called the statue awful and tragic, while others compared it to other celebrities like Cher, Donatella Versace, Barbra Streisand and Detox, a drag queen from RuPaul’s Drag Race.
How on earth did someone get PAID to professionally make a Lady Gaga wax figure that looks like THIS? pic.twitter.com/YHJjCehNtM— Colin Clark (@colinclark1995) October 20, 2017

Holy fuck I just realized this was real I legit thought it was a meme— John Paul Scott (@_pianosvant_) October 19, 2017
OMG has the person who created this ever SEEN even a PICTURE of HER?!— Jean M. O'Brien (@Oldlady12345) October 24, 2017
Sue the fucktard for fucking this artwork up.— Haley SlayLynn (@PhotoPopGraphy) October 19, 2017
Of course, Gaga isn’t the only celebrity to see their likeness turned into an unrecognizable statue. In July, a Madame Tussauds wax figure of Beyoncé was royally roasted for looking nothing like her. However, after the backlash over the statue’s light skin and thinner frame, the museum removed the figure to amend its features. We hope something similar will happen to Gaga’s statue — for our sake and the sake of Little Monsters everywhere.
