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.”
