Justin Bieber gets waxed

Justin Bieber was at the unveiling of his new waxwork at Madame Tussauds in London yesterday. The 17-year-old singer is the latest star to be honored with his own replica figure by the famous museum. Bieber seemed impressed by his likeness although he noted that he’d grown a few inches since he posed for it. He told museum staff:  “It’s pretty incredible to see. I’m taller but this was a point in time. It looks awesome, thanks very much.” Fan Grace Magraff, 14, said: “I cannot believe I am in the same room as Justin and his figure is amazing. I don’t want to leave; I just want to stay by his figure forever! It’s brilliant, just like him. I love it!”  The waxwork was created with the help of the teenager’s personal hair stylist to ensure it had his signature sweeping cut – which he recently ditched. Justin gave sculptors in New York a sitting late last year, where hundreds of precise measurements were taken. The figure then took four months to complete at a cost of £150,000 (approximately Cdn $237,075). PR manager Liz Edwards said: “The interest in Justin’s figure has been truly phenomenal. We were absolutely inundated with requests from young fans to include him and since we announced that we were indeed making his figure we’ve been besieged by ‘Beliebers’ wanting to know when they can come and see him here. We’re sure they will be as pleased with the final results as Justin seems to be today.” Figures of Justin were also revealed at Madame Tussauds Amsterdam and Madame Tussauds New York on Tuesday.

    Silver – Which one is the wax dummy?
    I say we light them both on fire to find out.

    Why does the wax one look so much better? Other than the dead, lifeless “I’m so cool” stare that they both have.

    Nobody, I like your idea. Amanda, so you can tell which one is the dead lifeless wax one versus the dead lifeless “real” one? Funny, but I think the eyes of the wax one (the one on the right, I hope) actually look more alive and friendly!

    Yeah, I agree with everyone above. The wax one is definitely an improvement on the live one!

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank
    for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks!
