Rihanna's bringing swag to Madame Tussauds D.C.

That's a figurative Rihanna, and literal swag. A wax statue of everyone's favorite Barbados-born pop queen will be unveiled at the museum at 1001 F St. NW at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

If you don't want to go to take your picture with a wax Rih-Rih, who will be clad in a corset, skinny pants and silk heels worn by the real singer, you can at least show up to get some free stuff. Madame Tussauds will give the first 50 visitors at Tuesday's unveiling a free umbrella -- if they mention the word "umbrella." We're guessing that adding the  "-ella, -ella, -ella" part aftewards is optional.

If you mention the "umbrella" password at Madame Tussauds anytime through the month of September, you'll get "buy one, get one free" admission to the wax museum.
