Bieber fever will hit Madame Tussauds New York when the attraction unveils a wax figure of musical teen sensation Justin Bieber to a crowd of adoring fans on Tuesday, March 15 at 11:00 a.m. at Madame Tussauds New York, located in Times Square at 234 West 42nd Street (between Seventh & Eighth Avenues).
The figure will be dressed in a black vest by Will-i-am and Balenciaga pants, both of which were generously donated by the recording artist. Posed in a standing position with his hands tucked coyly in his pockets, the newest addition to Madame Tussauds New York will stand next to Usher, the singer’s mentor and friend, in the attraction’s “VIP Room.” Two additional wax figures of Bieber will be launched simultaneously at Madame Tussauds attractions in London and Amsterdam.
Bieber was an enthusiastic participant in the creation of his wax figure, spending time with a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists for four months. During this time, artists took precise measurements and photos of the singer to ensure the figure fully captured his distinctive style, exact eye color, posture, and signature hair.
