WASHINGTON (AP) — Miley Cyrus is joining the likenesses of President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Oprah Winfrey in Washington's wax museum.

Madame Tussauds is unveiling a new figure Tuesday of the pop star. Artists from the wax museum used 250 precise measurements and many images of Cyrus to create the figure. The museum says designers spent a full week just perfecting all of Cyrus' tattoos.

Other contemporary musicians in the Madame Tussauds collection include Beyonce and Taylor Swift.

Cyrus began as a teen idol on Disney's "Hannah Montana" before she became a music star.
