He says, "I'm honoured to be getting my own wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York, London and Amsterdam.

"To be immortalised in wax alongside some of my idols - Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and my mentor, Usher - is incredibly exciting and very cool."

Bieber fans will be pleased to learn the wax figures will feature the singer's famous floppy hairstyle and not his new, "mature" cropped do, which he debuted on Monday (21Feb11).
