Zendaya Unveils Two Madame Tussauds Wax Figures

Young Oakland-born singer and actress reveals her likenesses in
stunning side-by-side launch

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zendaya returned to the Bay Area on the eve of her American Music Awards
appearance this afternoon to unveil two brand new wax figures from
Madame Tussauds. Styled to reflect Zendaya’s appearances at the 2014
Teen Choice Awards and 2014 BMI Hip Hop R&B Awards, one figure will
remain in Madame Tussauds San Francisco, while the other will be
featured at Madame Tussauds Orlando.

Zendaya is best known for her starring role as K.C. Cooper in Disney
Channels’ K.C. Undercover, and for the platinum single hit off
her 2013 self-titled debut album, “Replay”. She is currently working on
her second studio album.

With a strong belief in body positivity and individual beauty, Zendaya’s
impeccable style and confidence has won her wide appeal among teens and
young adults. With the launch of her figures, she has joined an
exclusive group of celebrities whose figures are a result of extensive
requests from fans eager to see their favorite stars immortalized in wax.

“This is a major, major honor and it’s so cool to have it in the Bay
where I’m from,” said Zendaya of the reveal. “This is the best trip
ever. I get to be home and be with my people…and also my twins!”
