The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now… but new wax Taylor is ready for fans, and felines! San Franciscan Swifties can celebrate the upcoming release of Taylor’s sixth studio album, Reputation, by getting up-close and personal with the superstar’s never-seen-before wax figure – launched only at Madame Tussauds San Francisco.
To welcome the 10-time Grammy Award-winning superstar and known cat fanatic’s new figure, Madame Tussauds San Francisco collaborated with Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue for a launch featuring adoptable cats and kittens just like Swift’s own furry and Insta-famous feline friends, Meredith and Olivia. Purr-fect!
“As huge fans of Taylor’s we really wanted to have some fun with this launch,” Madame Tussauds San Francisco General Manager Dalia Goldgor said. “Anyone who follows her on Instagram knows Taylor is a huge cat-lover so this was a very fitting, fun and furry way to celebrate her new figure and upcoming album.”
Posed for the perfect selfie with her music videos screening as the backdrop, Swift joins fellow superstars Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and more in the attraction’s interactive music zone where guests can play DJ, program their favorite tunes, sing, touch and dance along with the world’s hottest stars.
Swift’s new reputation is edgier so you had better be “ready for it”. Complete with sheer black lace lingerie and her “red lip classic thing that you like”, the figure is valued at approximately $350,000.
A majority of the cats featured in the photos with Swift are adoptable through Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue, which holds adoption events every Saturday and Sunday from 12-4 p.m. at Petco on Sloat Boulevard and Petco at the Petrero Center.
