Star Spotting: Whitney Houston’s Wax Figure Is So Lifelike, It Makes Us Miss Her Even More (PHOTO)

Whitney Houston's wax figure is unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.

Whitney Houston’s wax figure makes us wanna dance with somebody!

There isn’t a day that goes by where we don’t miss Whitney Houston, and we’re certainly not the only ones. One year after we lost the irreplaceable diva, the 2013 Grammys honored her by having Beyonc√©, Nicki Minaj, and Jennifer Hudson speak about Whitney’s influence on their lives, the music industry, and the world. And now, Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas has unveiled a beautiful and INCREDIBLY lifelike wax figure of the singer that is so spot on, it makes us miss the icon even more.

Mimicking Houston’s permed, ultra-’80s “I Want To Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” era, Whitney’s statue is so incredibly lifelike that we actually want to book a ticket to Vegas RIGHT NOW, JUST so we can walk up to it and hug it forever. It also serves as a perfect reminder that the ’80s would have been utterly lame if we didn’t have any of Whitney’s classic tunes to lip-synch to in front of the mirror when we were little. Uh, who are we kidding?? We lip-synched to “How Will I Know” in the mirror just last night… AND EVERY NIGHT.
