Justin Bieber's 11th Wax Figure Unveiled on National Selfie Day
With three tracks in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 right now, Justin Bieber is everywhere. And if you're not able to track down the real Bieber outside of the pop charts, as of June 21st, Justin now has 11 wax replicas on display around the world.
The newest edition was revealed on National Selfie Day at the Madame Tussauds museum in Orlando. Todd Andrus, the museum's Orlando head of marketing, stated that in the two years they have been open Bieber was the single most requested celebrity wax figure. Along with some superfans the event was also attended by two families from the Give the Kids the World Village, pictured bellow. Merlin Entertainments, the parent company of Tussauds, has provided in-kind donations and Magical Days Out to the Village totaling more than $1.75 million.
The hyper-realistic figure features Bieber's newest bleach blonde look. Dressed in a yellow plaid shirt, acid wash jeans, and his signature Calvins, the figure certainly makes you do a double take. The museum provides a completely interactive experience, and is perfect for fans who want to take the ultimate selfie with their favorite celebrity.
The wax Bieber even features his 50-plus tattoos, but not without a little last minute inking. “What's really unique about this figure,” Ashley Priselac, a studio manager at the museum explained, “is that it was all ready for launch… and then Justin Bieber posed on Instagram a new tattoo. We knew that fans would be looking for it, so we added it there, and if you peak through the little rip in his jeans you will see it”.
Justin showed off his new ink that says “Better At 70” above his knee on June 16th captioning his Instagram, “Look back at a lot of things in my life, mistakes, insecurities, and although I have felt I've wasted a lot of time it also makes me want to be better faster! For me personally I want to work everyday to be BETTER AT 70."
