Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back to Madame Tussauds New York where his wax figure was unveiled on Thursday.

JT’s waxy doppelganger, which dons a leather jacket, vest and tie, was photographed behind a presidential podium, of all places.

The unlikely set for the singer/actor/producer was meant to kick-off Tussauds online poll: Does Timberlake have “what it takes to beat out the current field of candidates for the nation's top job.” (We just assumed they were trying to start a new nickname: “The President of Pop.”)

But Timberlake won’t be behind the podium for long. Soon he’ll join Lady Gaga and Usher, among other wax celebs, in the attraction’s “VIP Room.”

Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl line pulled from Whole Foods

Bravo star Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl cocktail line has been pulled from Whole Foods, according to Access Hollywood.

Apparently the ingredients aren't "all natural," like the bottle claims. Jill Zarin must be having a field day with this.

"After discovering that [Skinnygirl Margarita] contains a preservative that does not meet our quality standards, we have had to stop selling it," said the natural and organic grocery chain in a statement.
