Taylor Swift's waxwork unveiled in Hollywood

Taylor Swift's waxwork figure has been unveiled at Madame Tussaud's Los Angeles to mark the release of the singer's new album 1989.

Museum general manager Colin Thomas reveals artists were forced to duplicate a model of Swift that currently exists in Washington, D.C. and Sydney, Australia to appease fans.


He says, "She's one of our most requested figures. We've been inundated by Swifties (fans) who want to see Taylor in L.A."


The new waxwork double, which came together after a three-hour sitting with the Love Story hitmaker, features an actual $3,000 guitar Swift played on her recent Red tour.


The unveiling of the new waxwork comes just days after Swift shut down Hollywood Boulevard for a free gig on Thursday night (23Oct14).
