There’s something a bit forlorn about the wax figure of tween sensation Justin Bieber unveiled Tuesday (March 15) at Madame Tussaud’s in New York.
The figure sports the Bieb’s classic pre-trim mop-top, a spot-on recreation of his photogenic face and is sure to delight the throngs of young girls who will doubtless embarrass themselves by pretending he’s their boyfriend and whatnot (see photo above).
But despite decades of guaranteed adulation, Waxen Bieber is sad. His face is forever frozen in an expression that seems to be silently pleading, “Help me. Get me out of here. I’m just a kid. It creeps me out that 50-year-old women have crushes on me. I’m getting asthma from all the hair spray used to keep my helmet intact. I am tired of pretending to date Selena Gomez. Did I really need a 3-D movie? I hope I don’t grow up to be a massive jerk. Unless I’m super rich, then that’s okay.”
And so it was that the fine wax artists of Madame Tussaud’s finally captured the soul of one of their subjects.
