Just in time for the upcoming UK leg of his Purpose World Tour, Madame Tussauds debuted Justin Bieber’s wax figure in London on Sunday, and it will surely warm the hearts of Beliebers everywhere to know that it is shirtless. True to pop star form, Biebs’ statue twin was unveiled with a soundtrack and a group of background dancers who got up close and handsy with it.
Since Bieber stopped taking fan photos, Beliebers who dreamed of snapping selfies with the singer will have to settle for the statue, which comes pretty close to the real thing. It features the “Sorry” singer’s clothing (or lack thereof), numerous tattoos, abs and his famous “I’m trying not to look cool but I totally am” facial expression. Oh yeah, did we forget to mention that Biebs’ waxy lookalike is also dripping wet?
Actually, it’s more like a not-so-subtle glistening.
A Madame Tussauds spokeswoman offered a much more eloquent description of Bieber’s new wax figure:
And here’s a close-up:
Here’s wet, waxy Bieber with his dancers, who clearly took their job duties seriously:
Here’s a look at the performance:
We have to say this is one of the most realistic Justin Bieber wax figures out there, which means we should brace ourselves for a barrage of Instagram selfies from fans who claim they’ve met Bieber IRL.
