According to, the statue seemed to be a lot thinner and lighter in colour than the singing sensation in real life.

The museum said that lighting has huge part to play in how the statues look.

“Our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted,” a representative of the museum told Billboard.

The artists at the museum have now fixed the lighting and styling, in order for it to look more like the star.

Before the adjustment was made, fans pointed out on Twitter that the statue looked like Shakira and Lindsay Lohan more than the 'Lemonade' singer. Here's a photo of the statue a fan tweeted:


The Twitterati was obviously confused with the discrepancy in the skin colour and were not pleased about it. Here are some tweets from the Twitter community expressing their displeasure:  

Recently, Kim Kardashian was bashed for posting picture of herself with a darkened skin tone to promote her cosmetic line. Fans had taken to social media to express their disappointment in the 36-year-old reality TV star for purposely making her face darker in her new make-up campaign.
