NEW YORK (Reuters) - Canadian teen pop idol Justin Bieber has become the latest celebrity to get his own wax figure, Madame Tussauds wax museum said on Tuesday, a day after the young pop star tweeted he had a new haircut.
The wax figure of the 16-year-old pop phenomenon, who was as famed for his former bowl-cut as his soulful voice, will debut in March at Madame Tussauds in New York, London and Amsterdam.
“To be immortalized in wax alongside some of my idols -- Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and my mentor, Usher -- is incredibly exciting and very cool,” Bieber said in a statement.
Bieber tweeted on Monday that he had a new haircut and would give the cut hair to charity.
Relying on Twitter and YouTube to spread his fame, he was the fourth best-selling albums artist in the United States last year, but missed out on a Grammy award last week.
