Next month, Madame Tussauds will release its newest wax figure: pop/R&B singer Justin Bieber. His likeness will debut at three Madame Tussauds locations, in New York, London and Amsterdam. Bieber spent four months with Madame Tussauds studio artists who took hundreds of measurements and photos of the Canadian teen idol to nail his look and trademark hair.
Recently, Justin Bieber's 3-D documentary, "Never Say Never," was released earlier this month, featuring footage of performances from his 2010 concert tour, the My World Tour. Since his debut onto the music scene in 2009, he has won four American Music Awards and has been nominated for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards, February 13, 2011.
He said, "To be immortalized in wax alongside some of my idols - Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyoncé and my mentor, Usher - is incredibly exciting and very cool." Other additions to the Times Square location include Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian, as well as Sean "Diddy" Combs, Robert Pattinson, the Jonas Brothers and President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
