Selfie selfie? Olivia Newton-John snaps photo with her wax figure

Olivia Newton-John found the one that she wants and may have created a new type of selfie category in the process by taking a picture of herself with herself.

The singer struck a pose this weekend with her wax figure in Las Vegas. Dressed as Newton-John's famed character Sandy from the 1978 hit musical "Grease," the figure is headed to its debut at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.

Newton-John, 65, smiled as she snapped a self portrait with her lifelike wax self. The way the figure appeared to be looking at the camera and smiling along with Newton-John added an element of double vision to the photo op.

The image hasn't shown up on her Instagram yet, but there's another selfie-ish shot there that captured Sandy back in the day with a certain fella.
