Nicki Minaj will now be a permanent staple in Las Vegas—at Madame Tussauds, that is!

Her wax figure was inspired by the rapper's "Anaconda" music video and features her in a seductive pose while wearing the same outfit she dons in her risqué video. The wax figure, which took six months to make an involved more than 20 artists, was unveiled Tuesday at The Venetian.

The "Starships" singer was pretty excited about her new doppelgänger, as she Instagrammed several photos of it! Giving fans different angles of her waxy twin, Minaj also posted the now-famous image of herself that inspired the figure.

"This is the real picture they used of me from Anaconda," she captioned the photo that served as the inspiration.

Fans have already lined up to see the latest attraction, which also includes back-up dancers and detailed jungle backdrop. "Guests have been consistently asking us to make her figure. As her music continues to grow in popularity, so does her larger-than-life persona and we wanted to capture that essence by creating the type of Madame Tussauds figure guests will find only in a city like Las Vegas," says Cole Kouvaris, marketing manager, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, in a statement on the exhibit's website.

Although Nicki has been been caught in the middle of Drake and Meek Mill's ongoing feud, it looks like she was able to take a break from it all to celebrate her exciting installment in Vegas! Even though she couldn't be there in person—she was busy performing in North Carolina—she paid some serious tribute on her social media platforms. Mill's significant other retweeted fans who are just as excited about her wax figure and made sure to point out that she's the first female rapper to get one.

Congratulations, Nicki!
