The New ‘Wet Look’ Justin Bieber Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds in London Is Depressing as Hell
Lucky enough for him, the kind folks at Madame Tussauds in London are giving all of us thirsty Beliebers the chance to get real close with the Purpose pop prince — or, well, an eternally dismayed wax version of himself mid-existential crisis, anyway.
The new-and-improved "wet look" (ew, bye) version of the shirtless superstar, complete with those signature Calvin Klein Underwear ad-friendly abs, realistically dewy skin meant to mimic his rainy "Sorry" performance and a permanent "what is my life, what are my choices?" face, was unveiled on Sunday (Oct. 9) at Madame Tussauds in London, just ahead of the UK leg kickoff of his Purpose World Tour on Tuesday (Oct. 11).
And he looks mis-er-uh-bull.
Four real life dancers were also on hand during yesterday's launch to partake in what appears to be an extremely bizarre, deeply unsettling performance alongside the distinctly lifeless wax figure. And it'll keep happening, apparently?
From Madame Tussauds:
"The limited run experience will literally make it rain, with soaked dancers joining Bieber's likeness as his anthem, 'Sorry', belts out in an energy packed performance worthy of one of the world's most celebrated entertainers. The 22 year old singing sensation’s figure is topless, showing a toned torso off to perfection, with Bieber’s trademark tattoos also carefully recreated and wearing dropcrotch shorts and tartan long johns, accompanied by a white bandana."
Each photo of the fake Biebs staring into space, desperately searching for meaning while trapped in his eternal wax hell, is more disturbing than the next.
If you need to see this in the flesh — err ,wax — you better hurry: the "special limited experience show" only runs from Saturday, October 22 to Sunday October 30.
