POP SENSATION JUSTIN BIEBER REVEALED AT MADAME TUSSAUDS SYDNEY
Listed as third most powerful celebrity in the world in 2012 by Forbes Magazine, this is the seventh Madame Tussauds attraction that Bieber will feature in.
Madame Tussauds Sydney has revealed Justin Bieber as the latest star to take permanent pride of place in the Sydney attraction with Sydney based dance companies; Urban Dance Centre and Dancekool.
Justin will stand alongside Rihanna, Kylie Minogue and Michael Jackson in the music zone at Madame Tussauds Sydney.
Bieber has sold over 15 million albums worldwide and has over 35 million twitter followers. It is this unparalleled popularity that sees him already feature in six Madame Tussauds attractions across the globe. The Sydney Justin Bieber figure represents the star’s most up-to-date look, depicting his most recent hair style and fashion choices.
It took a team of 60 Madame Tussauds’ sculptors and artists over 800 hours to master the seventh wax figure of Justin Bieber. When the original sitting took place in 2010, members of the team flew to the teen idol in Nashville to take a series of hundreds of measurements to make sure that everything would be as lifelike as possible for his dedicated army of fans. Special attention was paid to Bieber’s infamous hairstyle with each strand inserted one-by-one. Now, seven figures later, no other Madame Tussauds venue features Bieber with his new hairstyle – a style that told the world he was now ready to be treated as an adult.
“We know that Justin Bieber has a loyal fan base that will expect to see only the most lifelike wax replica. They have insisted on a wax figure of the pop star and our team have had to ensure that they only produced the best. We are thrilled with the results as are the entire Bieber camp,” said Hywel Mathias, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Sydney. “We are all really excited to see what the fans think of this modern version of Justin. I’m confident that they will be blown away.”
Justin’s brown eyes were made by hand to ensure the shade was just right; the irises were hand painted on to a fibreglass eyeball and red silk thread then added to ensure the finished product is completely lifelike.
