Despite reports, Nicki Minaj and her booty are not leaving the Madame Tussauds wax museum.

Spokesperson Cole Kouvaris confirmed to Billboard that the controversial wax figure is staying put. She stated:

“Nicki Minaj’s wax figure has not been removed from Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. The set has merely been adjusted.”

Although the figure is not being removed, the museum did beef up security after inappropriate pics were taken with the sexually posed wax Nicki.

On night two of late show premieres, Stephen Colbert tied with Jimmy Fallon in ratings, despite his slight lead on the previous night. Jimmy Fallon can thank pal Justin Timberlake for the spike in ratings among adults 18-49, as Timberlake was his guest on Wednesday night.

Colbert’s overnight rating dropped from a 4.9 to a 3.2 in households. Fallon’s jumped from a 2.4 to a 3.1 rating.

Speaking of Jimmy Fallon, he and Ellen DeGeneres had a battle Wednesday night–a lip sync battle.

Earlier that day, Fallon tweeted:


The host went first and began by singing The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside.” Next up was Ellen with Diana Ross’s “Do You Know Where You’re Going To.”

Punk’d is back on BET, and all boundaries are gone when it comes to pranking our favorite celebs.

This week, Trey Songz and Sanaa Lathan were the targets. Trey Songz got to see a guy in a wheelchair mysteriously walk, while Sanaa Lathan got a lesson in telekinesis.
