First he was turned into a plastic doll, and now Justin Bieber is getting the wax treatment by Madame Tussauds.
"I'm honored to be getting my own wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York, London, and Amsterdam," says the Bieb, whose doubles will make their debut in March. "To be immortalized in wax alongside some of my idols — Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyoncé and my mentor, Usher — is incredibly exciting and very cool."
The singer was measured for his wax figure prior to lopping off his signature hairstyle, which begs the question: What kind of haircut will the Tussauds' teen idol be sporting?
"We're going to wait to see how the new haircut takes with the fans," Madame Tussauds New York general manager Bret Pidgeon tells E! Online. "It'll be part of the excitement for the final launch day."
Pidgeon adds that the museum isn't worried about having to build a new Bieber once he has his inevitable growth spurt: "We're capturing a moment in time. Capturing what he looks like right now."
