Sean "Diddy" Combs and his mother Janice // Madame Tussauds in New York City

As if the one who lives and breathes weren’t enough! (no shade)

Sean “Diddy” Combs unveiled his wax figure Tuesday (Dec 15) at Madame Tussauds in New York City. The hip-hop mogul invited his mother Janice, his sister, his nephew and his son to witness the unveiling of Sean Combs 2.0.

“I wanna thank my mother, she was the originator of the wax figure,” he said with a grin. It’s hard to explain looking at yourself like this,” he continued. “They did an excellent job.” Maybe too good — Combs said the statue is so lifelike it was a little “scary — scary in a good way.”

Diddy said he’d had to stand still for three hours in front of the sculpting team while they captured his likeness. He chose to go with how he looks now as opposed to going with one of the many looks that he’s rocked throughout his career.

“I went with the most recent likeness of myself,” he said. “They wanted to do me live, how I was. It wasn’t like I could give them an old shot. What you see is what you get.  This is the first time I’m seeing it. It’s to my liking. It looks very realistic — one of the more realistic ones.”
