This March, Justin Bieber’s wax likeness will be hitting three Madame Tussauds wax museums. Outposts in London, New York and Amsterdam will all house statues of the teen pop sensation. And, since Bieber decided to have his trademark locks lopped off last weekend, fans may be wondering what kind of hairstyle the statues will feature. Well, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the likenesses will in fact sport Bieber’s signature swoop.
“We have been absolutely inundated with requests from young fans from around the world to see him,” Liz Edwards, head of PR at Madame Tussauds, explained. “We’re sure his fans will be just as delighted as we are that Justin will be joining the A-list.”
THR further reported that Bieber will be the headlining act at the museum’s music zone, an interactive area that also features stars like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake. It’s reported that Bieber sat for his statue late last year.
“We’re capturing a moment in time,” Bret Pidgeon, general manager of Madame Tussauds New York, told E! News about the statue. “Capturing what he looks like right now.”
Pidgeon also hinted about the hair that would appear on the statue. “We’re going to wait to see how the new haircut takes with the fans … It’ll be part of the excitement for the final launch day,” he added, noting that Bieber will be on hand at one of the unveilings.
Reps for the museum never responded to MTV News’ request for further information by press time.
“I’m honored to be getting my own wax figures,” Bieber said in a press statement. “To be immortalized in wax alongside some of my idols — Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and my mentor, Usher — is incredibly exciting and very cool.”
A long line of other music stars also have had their likenesses cast in wax for display at Madame Tussauds locations. In the past few years, teen idols like the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and even Lady Gaga have all received the honor from the famed institution.
