Oh, Hello, Wax Version Of Michelle Obama... And 'Hello,' Lionel Richie

Michelle Obama is currently getting -- ahem --  "waxed." Like the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, and Tokio Hotel's Bill Kaulitz, the First Lady's busy having a wax likeness of herself created by the... wax technicians... at Madame Tussauds. Wax Michelle Obama will reside in the Washington D.C. location of Madame Tussauds alongside the wax version of Barack Obama, which was unveiled in February 2008. Look for wax Michelle Obama in March 2009. No word yet on if she'll be wearing that Jason Wu gown, one of her awesome yellow outfits, J.Crew, or whatevs.

On another note: I really wish they'd stop releasing work-in-progress photos of the wax figures, because all I can ever think about is Lionel Richie's 1984 "Hello" video, where the blind dancer/ actress/ sculptor chick makes that epic statue of Lionel's head, you know?
