PIC: Justin Bieber Unveils His Wax Figure
Justin Bieber is a work of art -- literally!
The 17-year-old "Baby" singer was on hand to unveil his very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds in London Tuesday. Across the pond, his New York fans simultaneously unveiled his wax figure at Madame Tussauds Times Square location.
"I'm honored to be getting my own wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York, London and Amsterdam," Bieber said in February. "To be immortalized in wax alongside some of my idols -- Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and my mentor, Usher -- is incredibly exciting and very cool."
(Bieber's girlfriend, 18-year-old Selena Gomez, was immortalized in wax in March 2010.)
To capture Bieber's likeness, a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists took hundreds of precise measurements and photos of the singer over a four-month period; the three figures all sport outfits donated by the singer, including a shirt by G-Star Raw.
"The first time I saw a wax figure was in NYC and all we could do was look though the glass," Bieber tweeted Tuesday. "Thanks to the fans and Madame Tussauds London for today."
