Lorde waxwork unveiled at Madame Tussauds

The wax statue was unveiled in Los Angeles on Wednesday (May 13)

Lorde has been honoured with her own waxwork at Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles.

The wax replica of the New Zealand singer went on show on Wednesday (May 13), according to Billboard, with the figure modelled on the outfit Lorde wore to the 2015 Golden Globes.

A press release from Madame Tussauds claims that Lorde “was an enthusiastic participant” in the making of the statue. See a photo of the waxwork above.

This news follows on from that of Madame Tussauds hiring “tissue attendants” to dry eyes of teary One Direction fans after Zayn Malik’s departure from the pop group in March.

Lorde has also issued an update on the progress of her second album. The singer revealed on Tumblr that she “took a few months off” at the beginning of the year and is now “just getting into making the next body of work”. “[It’s] very exciting and scary but so validating,” she added, before stating that she is “taking my time to make the new [music] as good as I can”.

Producer and co-writer Joel Little recently claimed that the singer was “trying new things” for her next LP.

Speaking at this year’s Golden Globe awards, Lorde herself said of her next effort: “For me I have to kind of write a project lyrically before I attack it musically. So I’ve written a lot of amazing stuff and I’m just tentatively starting to make it music.” Asked when the record would be released, the singer said she would be taking her time. “I have no timeline,” she explained. “I really don’t care.”

Lorde released her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ in 2013. Read the NME review.
