Rihanna lands a waxwork in Britain

Rihanna has become the latest star to be immortalised in wax.

The Umbrella hitmaker has been transformed into a wax figure for London's Madame Tussauds museum, to sit alongside life-like statues of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Leona Lewis and late singer Amy Winehouse.

The waxwork will go on display this week (beg03Oct11) to tie in with the launch of Rihanna's U.K. tour.

A Madame Tussauds spokesperson says, "We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to Madame Tussauds London. Her inclusion couldn't be more timely as her Loud tour arrives in the capital this week...

"Rihanna is one of the biggest music stars of the moment and is a perfect addition to the 'diva dream team' of female artists we have here at the attraction."

A waxwork of the singer previously went on display in Berlin, Germany in August (11).
