She’s an Indonesian-born beauty who routinely performs in sold-out venues from Jakarta to Paris.
And now Anggun — the Javanese star with the voice of an angel and a body made for sin — is preparing to take centre stage yet again, this time as a wax figure at Madame Tussauds Bangkok.
During the filming of a sneak peak video in Thailand, the 42-year-old stunner was in good spirits and had a fun message for fans: “You can come and see me any time in Bangkok,” she says. “Don’t touch some parts you’re not supposed to touch. Behave!”

@anggun_cipta — Indonesia's biggest pop music export — will be immortalized in wax at @madametussaudsbangkok. These images show her choosing the perfect eyeballs and fake hair, and getting her wrists measured and hands cast. Please make an extra figure #madametussauds! We want one for our apartment! #Anggun #angguncipta #anggunciptasasmi #eurovision2012 #eurovision
Anggun says that when the museum called her she assumed it was to invite her to sing.
“Then they said it is to have your wax figure,” she recalls, before gasping. “I am very flattered and surprised. I felt like a Marilyn Monroe…I felt like wow! I am going to be immortalised!”
The video, which you can watch below, shows a giddy Anggun working with staff to choose the perfect eyeballs and fake hair for her wax figure.
Throughout the video she has black dots on her face, which are used to help the artisans track the contours of her face as they attempt to recreate her perfection in wax form.
This is essential when working with someone as flawless as Anggun, as she doesn’t have any wrinkles to use as landmarks.
At the end of the year Anggun, who sang for France at Eurovision 2012, will tour her adopted country to promote her latest album and to celebrate her 20-year career in Europe.
The tour begins with three shows at the intimate Café de la Danse in Paris on December 1, 2 and 3 before moving to other cities.
Eurovision fans will be thrilled to know she also plans to release an album in English by the end of the year.
