Beyoncé is expected to announce her “RENAISSANCE” world tour Wednesday, February 1st, 2023

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Beyoncé is expected to announce her “RENAISSANCE” world tour Wednesday, February 1st.

Begging forgiveness for its many well-documented sins, Tussaud's unveiled a brand new Beyoncé figure today. And it's actually not that bad? Ripped from her historic Coachella Homecoming performance, the statue avoids many past mistakes. They didn't make her white, for example.

It took us many years and bad wigs to get here. Below, a history of cursed Beyoncé statues.

Wax figures are universally freaky and terrible, but it's true that some are slightly better than others. More generic-looking celebrities come out okay in wax — it's a medium that lends itself to blank gazes and lip fillers. Most influencers would probably fare pretty well!

Madame Tussaud's has however historically failed to accurately depict anyone with uniquely iconic, instantly recognizable features. A perfect example of this? Beyoncé, whose likeness has been crudely, brutally rendered at various Tussaud's locations for more than a decade now.

This drunk girl at the club version of Beyoncé, first unveiled by the London Tussaud's location in 2004, is disrespectful not only in its lack of accuracy (especially evident when juxtaposed with the real woman), but also because from another angle Beyoncé's panties are exposed for hordes of camera-toting tourists to see. The janky bachelorette party veil was added to celebrate Beyoncé and Jay-Z's engagement announcement in 2008.

If a Beyoncé impersonator showed up to work looking like this 2008 wax iteration of Beyoncé from Tussaud's Hollywood, she'd be fired. (I'm not sure what the workplace is, that hires Beyoncé impersonators? But you get the point. This does not look like Beyoncé.)

The work immortalizes Bey's 2018 Coachella performance with the figure clad in a yellow cropped sweatshirt, denim cutoffs and iridescent knee-high boots. 

"It's time to bow down to THE QUEEN," Madame Tussauds declared in an Instagram post debuting the likeness with fist held in the air.

The destination also placed the "Spirit" songstress among their other royal forms including Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan for another picture.

"Take your throne, Queen Bey," the caption read. According to the destination's website, Beyoncé has taken Queen Elizabeth II's place among the British royals, just for a day.

“Beyoncé is a living legend, rightly crowned Queen Bey by her legions of fans and industry insiders," Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said in a post about the figure. "If anyone is fitting of a claim to The Queen’s spot in our attraction for the very first time, it’s Beyoncé."

Instagram users rejoiced in the photos' comments section.

"YOU GOT IT OMG," one wrote.

"Well done on getting this right," applauded another.

Another declared it the place's "best work! FINALLY"

Twitter users also gushed.

"PERIODT. Y'all did THAT," a person remarked. "The artist that made this deserves a raise!"

"Thank you," posted a user. "Finally y'all did her justice".
